That is a Nasty Typhoon and one sold here earlier this year for $550 [also that is not a pump, it is semi-auto]. They are much more expensive to purchase new from Palmer's.

If you like the Nasty Typhoon there are also Nasty Houndstooths out there which are the same form factor but pump guns or you could have Palmer's make you one.

That all being said find a paintball friend/s who own pumps and convince them to let you try them out during a day of play. Find out which type you like the most [purely subjective decision] and that will help you decide on what pump is good for you.

I own and play with Nelson based, Sheridan [stacked tube] based, Sniper [cocker] based pumps and the Palmer's Pyre [similar to a Sniper in concept but different]. My favorite for actual playing regularly is the Pyre followed by my Snipers. Aesthetically I love my LAPCO [Nelson Based] pumps the most but they are not nearly as playable as my Phantoms. All of these pumps are playable and I try to play with them interchangeably but the Pyre gets the lion share of play time.

Ok, i think i need to start with a simple pump that glides well, and has a woodsy look to it 150 i think is my budget. Being able to 12gram or remote is a plus. Any pics of that kind of gun. Oh and one thats easyish to maintain.

Thanks again. I dont want to drawn yet haha

I would look for a used VSC Phantom, I bought mine from Melvin earlier this year and have had a blast with it at several games:

Looks like a 9ci. The boys were putting those together last summer.

A Used Kingman Hammer fits the bill for that and since it uses Spyder barrels it's easy to find them
I snagged one on eBay for $57 shipped and for just under $100 turned it into a long slide pistol







If you can increase your budget a bit there's a nice PPS SuperStocker fs here for a $350

If this is your first foray into pump I would recommend Sheridan/stacked tube. It's an easier translation into pump play, at least in my experience.

Only recommendation [other then trying before buying] is to not jump straight into Stock Class it is easier to transition from Semi-Auto to Open Class pump to get started. Later after you get some experience and develop some good pump chops then try stock class.
