Pump questions..

Hey, I'm looking into buying a pretty good pump, which will probably be a phantom, but that's not the point.

1. Can any pump gun use co2?
2. Do they sell any kits or anything like that to make a pump pneumatic (I think it's pneumatic, I forget.. whatever that air assisted thing is where you only have to pull the pump yourself like 1/10 of an inch, and the system-thing does the rest) lol someone help me out on this one.
3. I'm guessing a pump is out of the picture for speedball, but is there a way to make it use-able for speedball?

Just some questions..
thanks

for more practical use should I get the normal phantom or stock class... can I use a normal hopper and regular CO2 tank on a stock class phantom? or do I have to pick which one to buy..

buy a stock class phantom. Then if you want to use a hopper you can get a spyder feedneck (old style) and bolt it on. You can also put a regular co2 tank on a stock class phantom. You just have to remove the 12g adaptor. And yes you can use a pump in speedball. Pump speedball is almost all I play any more.

i have heard of pneumatically assisted pumps. i know nothing about them though. hmm, i am seriously considering a phantom now. i have a shutter at the moment and am sick and tired of it. im gonna be working a couple jobs over the summer so ill have plenty of money hopefully. i was wondering about the t-stock and l-stock. i really like having something there resting on my arm and keeping the marker stable, and w/o a tank there, i was thinking about a stock. any suggestions/comments? thanks.

T-stocks are around $40 or so, you could probably find them for cheaper on the nation.

If your looking to save money, take your time when looking to buy used...I bought a Black VSC phantom(clear thing over breech, 15 round tube), tubes and caps, 3.5oz tank, Detent Rings, T-stock, 3 boxes of 12 grams, manuel, velocity changer, barrel condom for $265 shipped, just gotta check like 3 times a day.

Or buy new from Wevo, CCI or WWA. I'm still gonna buy some stuff from Wevo, already lost the red detent ring.

yeah, i think i want to buy new. ive never had a new marker (bought mine used but in great condition). so im thinking getting a brand new marker will be pretty exciting. that is a nice deal though.

Hi all! I've been giving some serious thought to giving up my Zeus G2 for a Phantom. Before I buy it though, I was hoping you guys could clear some things up.

First, if you get the Phantom with a .45 grip, can you put on Dye Sticky Grips 3?

Secondly, does the Phantom come with any type of sight rail, or is one available that allows you to mount a red-dot sight?

Thirdly, how hard was it for you guys to adjust your tactics and play styles to use a pump effectively? Hopefully it wasn't as long as it took with a pistol.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Yes you can use dye sticky 3s, along with any other grips that say "45 grip".

On top of the thing on top of the breech, there is a sight rail, so yes.

It wasn't too hard, you just need to learn to not rely on firepower while moving.

Zeus is decently heavy for a pistol, I think a Phantom almost weighs the same, possibly a little more
