Avratech Retro 7. Modernized version of the Nelspot 007. Aluminum construction, cocker threaded barrels, quick change (4 lead) 12 gram changer. Mix of Nelson and Phantom compatibility.
I own one, pretty heavily modified. They're pretty nice. Pump stroke is pretty typical Nelson, very efficient (40+ shots per 12 gram), enough modification options to put a Phantom to shame.
Here's some pics of mine:
Bottom is how it's currently set up. Old Wintec Nelson frame with a CCM 86* block, bottomlined.
EDIT: Got ninja'd. Only place to get one is pretty much here, when they pop up in the BSTs. They range from $750-1000.

I'll add it to the ever-growing list of poor financial choices I will probably make if the opportunity presents itself...
If I don't answer, please leave a message.
I will call you back.

I like my PRP. I like my PVN’d MVP much more. There is a reason it’s more than twice the price.

work on points for style
I have a pre2k Sniper, and an Armson PTSC which is a 2k+. I mainly use small hoppers with the pre2k and use the SC feed adapter on the Armson.
I also have a Thumper. Freaking awesome gun when it's working.

I have limited experience, but I like what I have.
KPC: first pump I ever bought.
Took me a while to get used to center feed, but the last time out I did really well with it.
As another poster said about the KP3, the geometry can feel awkward at times. I wasn't as good with snap shots.
I figured out that it handles better for me with my peanut tank than with the skinny 13/3000's I use with my SL68's.
SL68's: crude, rough, and I love them. Side feed neck is my favorite for the sight picture. Plus I like that the bolt locks when forward.
This has kept me from doubling up balls during a hot game.
The slip fit barrels allow you to modify almost anything to fit one. Find a cheap cocker barrel with a .679 bore? Turn down the shank and viola', it's an SL68 barrel.
I never knew all those years in the Army were just training for Woodsball.......

I'm new to the Phantom appreciation game, but my current Phantom and my old Hammer are the only Nelsons I've really liked. I liked the feel of the buzzard and the grey ghost, but I didn't like how they felt in-game.
Cocker pumps are my go-to if I just want things to be 'easy'. They shoot reliably and I am comfortable tuning them. If I'm committed to stick feed I love my Super Stocker in all it's bulky, awkward glory.
CCMs are a fine tuned beast, but similarly to a lot of the newer guns they almost feel too refined. I like the rough & tumble of older guns.

Currently I have a 007 that I don't play with because it just needs a few mods before it's a real players gun. Right now it's got CCI internals and an Empire Trracer detent to prevent rollouts. Still need to get a pump handle, extended barrel(more for aesthetics), and a CCI Pierce Pin mod or just a rear ASA + changer.
I also have an Empire Trracer which is my ultimate loaner/backup gun. I'm dumb and am currently dumping money into it.
My main pump is actually my bolt action Sheridan. It took be a long time to actually enjoy using a Sheridan. Something about 3 tubes stacked on top of each other made it difficult for me to aim. Side feed made a big difference for me. I guess I'm just used to sighting straight down the barrel.
I've had a number of Snipers, Phantoms, etc. over the years, and I always enjoyed them. But marker to marker, you might notice a difference, and you need to find the one that's right for you.
