SC Pistol vs Rifle

I am looking into my first SC gun and was wondering what everyone prefers, pistol of rifle config and why?

I have both setups and swap back and forth constantly. Why you ask? Some days I want mobility, other days I want stability and am too lazy to keep swapping parts back and forth on one marker.

I planned on using it mostly at the start of big games, so I can run up quickly (I'm a track sprinter), and all my main guns are all 5+ lbs unloaded which does hinder my running.
I would pick pistol, but I'm a rifle shooter and find it wierd to use something with no stock and grip the front. If I were to go pistol, I probably would go semi, double action, or rear cocking (Splatmaster, PG).

If you're already used to shooting rifle-ish guns, stick with it. Stock class is hard enough without having to learn a totally different feeling gun.

Something like a vsc phantom, or a dropout phantom, will weight 2-3 lbs fully loaded, with a t-stock. You probably won't notice something that light. Heck, even something that's open class with a small tank (13-22ci) and a 50 round hopper is substantially lighter than your typical semi.

Hummm.... ever see the Engler Sarge kit for the TPX/TiPX? I don't think you can buy the kits anymore but may be able to snatch one up used if you're lucky.



I have seen people use an UMAREX Tac Converter kit to do a cheaper DIY mod.

I play mostly rifle style. Like above, play with what is comfortable. I'm on my 3rd phantom since 1991, great versatility, both for rifle to pistol(ish) and sc to open class.

I agree with the Phantom recommendation. Even with a stock, its weight will be negligible. I also recommend going with an undercocking kit since it will make aiming the marker more familiar to you since you'll be able to aim down the barrel with an unimpeded view.

Give standard pump a shot they work good and are simpler overall.

A phantom with an empty co2 tank on it can work too and you don't have to buy a stock. Take off the tank if you want a pistol

I have both and use both but I prefer a mid sized platform so I can snap shoot better.

Example, I use a full size VSC phantom, but no stock. Or pirate stocked KPs

TiPX is a little out of my budget and l prefer dedicated rifles and pistols, not a carbine of sorts. Besides that I would need a bunch of mags for it.
Right now I'm thinking either a Splatmaster for pistol or stock class phantom with spring feed for rifle.
