Sniper users without a return spring

What's up guys. I posted a thread like this on another forum and got some pretty cool responses, so I thought I'd try it here to hear from other people.

I have a quick question for all you Sniper shooters that don't use a pump return spring, in order to keep a really light pump stroke. Just curious how you deal with not getting double feeds (when marker is already cocked) when running, diving, and tilting your gun in certain situations? Since you can't have your hand on the pump 100% of the time, how do you get around it? Just don't care and take a chance?

Thanks!

I keep the foregrip thumb firmly on the pump arm if I'm running without a spring, but I prefer the feel of a spring. I'm too used to my phantom's undercocking kit.

i have my gun set up so that when its cocked, the bolt cant completely clear the breech with out my hand pushing it all the way back. theres always at least a little bit of the bolt blocking the breech when the pump handle is "free floating"

I use a really old Sniper II, s/n 3600. Bud built it especially for me, and it incorporates ideas he had at the time although rather crude in comparison from later versions of the Sniper and Cocker, worked.

A spring nosed set screw through the sight rail at the breech as a anti-double, and the hole through the sight rail for sear/lug adjustment.

i found a few springs at work that worked well. i had to do a little stretching, but it works perfect. i like the spring way better than without it

I never really paid that much attention. If I double feed then the bad guy gets 2 balls at him...

:P

Here is an easy way - hold down the trigger as you run - The AT cam doesn't allow the pump to chamber another ball.

If you are running to bunker a guy - you usually don't swing your arms enough to chamber a ball.

TF,
What do you do if you're on the run, diving(superman) or in a situation where you're other hand can't be on the pump, and your gun is already cocked?

Thanks for the tips on holding down the trigger. Sounds like it will work well for times when it's not cocked, and you're on the run or diving.

I never let go. Both hands are always on the gun and pump. Just point it down and creep around to bunkers. You can even run that way too.
It isn't hard. Pump is not new to paintball. I always aim with one hand on the grip and the other on the pump.
Later,
Blackrain
