Noob at pump questions

Ok so i might get into pump... If I do should i buy a cheap one($10 to $20) just to see how it feels? Or should i spend $60 to $100 first?

Also does this gun the Trracer/Maverick Pump DELUXE

Dont waste your money on a cheap brass eagle. Look around, you can find a maverick or traccer or sl682 for around 40-70.

Not sure about mavericks, but phantoms have some of the best reps in tehpump world. They are the DM5's of pump.

I just had an SL-68 II but I sold it. Those are great too.

i had a trracer deluxe before my phantom. it costs about $40 used.i really liked it considering i spent $40 on it, enouhg to make me sell my semi and buy a phantom atleast. mavericks are the same thing as trracers so i would recomend buying either one of those. i wouldn't recomend upgrading it a lot though. all i did was put a 12 gram adapter and home made stick feed on mine and i was fine. you can upgrade the barrel though. there is a barrel called the eliminator i think, that costs about $15 on ebay, and also the ceramic for about $45 http://jjperformance.com/mcart/index.cgi?code=3&cat=19, and one other barrel for about $70, the armson barrel or w/e.

I would definatly reccomend the ACI Maverick. They are very reliable, and very accurate. However, if you use cheap paint in them, they tend to chop a little bit, so keep that in mind when you are tempted by walmart's paint!

With all pumps they are more likely to chop if you do not cock them fully. Remember that you are in manual control of the opening and closing of the port, so you have to take a full stroke before each shot. Also with pumps that have the auto trigger you have to remember that if you roll off shot after shot (by holding the trigger and pumping) you're more likely to chop if the balls don't feed right.
