OK. I was thinking about buying the Sl-68. I know its pump action and im ready to change to that. But i was wondering if anyone on here would know any good or bad things that might change my mind on it! Thanx!

I purchased one at the end of last year and love it. Some things you will want to consider though:

-They seem to have some trouble using compressed air. If you use CO2 you are all set, but with compressed air I can't always get the FPS up past about 250-260.

-There are not much in the way of upgrades for them. The only upgrade I know of is a new barrel, and even that is hard to find. The barrel is a slip fit barrel, and I believe the only option for a new barrel would be slip fit ones made by J&J or a custom made one. The marker is fairly accurate with the stock barrel anyway.

-No detents = rollouts when using small bore paint. Just means you won't want to pump the marker until you are ready to shoot. Or you could do one of the mods out there to add your own detent in.

-They are slightly on the long side, but so is any Tippmann marker when compared to most other brand markers.

-For the price they are hard to beat, though for an extra hundred or so you could pick up a used Autococker pump that is smaller and has the option to be customized more. Check Ebay of PBNation to see what I mean.

-They are made rock solid, and the internal design is very simple to maintain.

Just a few things I have noticed with mine. Hope that helps.

SL68s have one advantage over the Autococker pumps, at least in stock form.  The Autocockers don't have an auto-trigger.
