Open Class & Stock Class

What are these? I want to assume Open Class is with like a hopper, and Stock Class is one with the 'Pistol' Hopper that holds only 10-15 rounds?

How can you tell the difference, and are all pump markers different class or is it just how you accessorize your marker?

True stock class- horizontal feed tube, powered by 12 grams, no ball gates, check valves, auto triggers.
Modified Stock Class- Allows auto-triggers, and either a constant air tank OR a hopper (not both)
Super Stock- Allows constant air and a hopper, as well as check valves, auto triggers, and other modifications.
Open class- Pneumatic assist guns, anything goes, so long as you have to pump it to shoot.

'true SC' rules are very rarely enforced, especially in this day and age. Heck, most Nelsons have autotriggers and ball gates. I think people are generally happy so long as the marker runs on 12-grams and has a horizontal, non-spring-fed feedtube.

I'm all in favour of relaxing the stockclass rules a bit but I do hate autotriggers. I'll let them slide as long as there is a stickfeed but autotrigger and a hopper is a short hop to just being a semi.

in a pure pump environment, sure; but in a mixed field, alongside mechs and electros, i don't see any harm. i love my CCM.

How does the autotrigger effect a pump gun?

an autotrigger allows a marker to fire on every forward pump stroke so long as the trigger remains held down.

Oh I see. That sounds like it would ruin the concept of it being a pump gun..
