Wow, Happy belated Birthday! I would choose the sniper pump because I gave away a SB Piranha last Walzmas, and I would like the chance to give away a sniper in a future one!

I'd choose/want the sniper. In complete transparency, I'd use it as a loaner for newcomers/first time visitors to local my stickfeed pump group. Brass is beautiful, but not necessarily as first timer friendly.

First off, Happy Birthday. I would pick the classic brass Sheridan, over the sniper. Iím not familiar with the sniper, and for that reason, Iíd pick the Sheridan. I also donít have that brass model in my collection. 🙂

I'm in. For me the choice is easy. I will take brass over aluminum. Brass wins. What a patina brass can have! What luster when polished! There is a special skill involved when working brass, and soldering.

The classic brass wins this epic battle.

I would choose the brass. I actually have a Sniper very similar to the one offered here. That, and it's brass. So, the choice is easy. Happy birthday and merry Walzmas!

Hands down brass.

That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.

I'd choose the sniper as I have never had one in my hands and am trying various pumps out at the moment.

Happy birthday!

Ooh...this is tough.
I've been wanting a brass marker for a long time now, but I've been really into autocockers lately. I think I'll have to go with the sniper.
Wait, where did my money go?

Why is this not yet a thing?

Wow, you are awesome as always good sir!

I will pick the sniper pump. Mostly because I know less about it than the brass one, and love learning new things
