Pump with no return spring?
For a long time now I've heard of the 'real' pumpers who play with no return spring on their pump handles. For around 3 years, I have played with a return spring in all my pump guns, until today. I poped the pump return spring out of my t2, and it was a total nightmare. I mostly played snake, and whenever I crawled, or did anything involving letting the pump handle go, it was double feed city.
I guess my question is how in the heck people play with no return spring? How do you keep from double feeding when crawling, switching hands while playing super tight (chest against bunker, passing gun at chest level, vertically), etc. Anything would be great, thanks.

I've ran all my pumps without return springs with no problems. Most of the pumps I had, had Autotriggers and I just usually held the trigger down(which kind of locks the bolt forward) and I never had an issue with it double feeding. Also I never really took my hand off the pump handle unless I was sliding(I mostly play dorito side)

"real pumpers"? now that's being too picky. Just use the spring. I think players probably got away with it easier back when pump strokes weren't quite so light or on sheridans where the bolt had locking bearings in the forward position. With today's super light pump strokes a return spring is almost a necessity. It's why I have one on my 2k sterling. It likes to cock itself when running with one hand. Also, some guns' autotrigger setups don't preclude the gun from being repumped.

SCENARIO AND WOODSBALL
Thats my thing guys. Why drop the spring when you can just cut one down or just find a lighter spring? I mean how light do you have to be on the pump stroke?
ITS MATTS FAULT
EVEN IF ITS NOT BLAME HIM ANYWAY

People who don't use return springs are mostly clueless. They will call you crazy when you inform them they are shooting atleast 50 bps lower if they don't hold their pump handle forward.

but i have had my pump slop open on me because the pump return spring was too light - and the AT cam cost me a few easy shots.
medium spring for max reliability. stock usually works just fine.
