As to your original question with out knowing what kind of "cocker pump" you have there's no specific suggestions I can give you execept that smaller is better. Smaller airsource and hopper is the best way reduce weight in any marker say a 50 round pocket hopper and a 13ci HPA tank indstead of a Halo and a 64/4500. You can also try smaller barrels, lighter regs and no drop or cradle to shave off a few ounces. Lastly milling or modifying the body itself to shave a few extra grams, FYI milling or half-blocking your marker would be the most expensive and time consuming with probably the least yield.

i still say, to make it one liter, you need to do a water displacement test.

if you want to make it Lighter we might be able to help with that.

start off by considering turtling, then maybe consider springing it to run straight CO2 from a 3.5 tank.

Lighting?

Well, if that 68/3000 is a steely you could definitely benefit from a carbon fiber tank. As for the hopper, get a Sportshot or Winchester. Both will reduce weight.

Those Lightning cockers are pretty light as is. Like Pizzaluvr said, a carbon fiber tank would definatly help you out a lot. You might also want to look at getting a 13/3000 or a 22/3000 tank. They're small HPA tanks that work great for pump markers. Along with a small shake and bake hopper like the Winchester, Sportshot, or even the Brass Eagle 50 ball hoppers (a lot of people don't like them, but I prefer them over anything else) will also cut down your weight significantly.

I don't recall ever seeing a steel 68.


As mentioned you could get a fairly expensive HPA tank like 13 or 22ci or just get a 7 or 9 ounce CO2 tank. If you're shooting pump I highly reccommend just getting a 4,7 or 9oz tank there isn't much advantage in HPA vs CO2 in a pump as the gas has sufficient time to expand when your not shooting strings of paint. Just make sure you have a decent reg that works well with CO2 such as a used standard WGP inline or Ergo reg that are going for peanuts right now. It will save tons of headaches on making sure your tank is hydroed or trying to find a place that fills HPA, as tanks 2" OD or less never need to be rehydroed and if you have any problems with the field monkeys you can just go down to your local Walmart and get a fresh one with the exchange program. Shooting HPA out of a pump is really more of a luxury than a necessity. Also as mentioned try a limited paint hopper or a stickfeed.

I thought he could have been mistaken or something. Doesn't hurt to check... People have made that mistake before.
