Undercocking vs Sidecocking?

I'm asking this because I'm trying to figure out the difference between the Trracer and the Tagmaster (I guess you could go Phantom and Buzzard if you wanted). So does it make the pump stroke feel any different? Is there anything else I should know?

You terms are a bit off, but i know what you are talking about. From my experience, the "sidecocking" is smoother than the "undercocking". Other than the pump stroke feeling different, they will have slightly different internals, because the pump arm connects to the bolt in different ways.

well for phantom/buzzard comparison... the feeling is different because the amount of pressure placed onto one rod is equally distributed when using dual rods.. if you understood anything i just said. LOL

Dont worry. I dont even know what you would call it. But i was thinking undercocking would be like a sniper and sidecocking would be like an old 007.

We'll use medical terms to differentiate between them now.


Caudal cocking - Phantom design.

Lateral cocking - Buzzard design.








I'm a genius.

yes dual arms is better.

you have a pump arm/arms that need to push one movable object. anytime an object moves like that, you want it is be as firmly fixed as possible for best action. dual arms means teh bolt is getting equal pressure from both sides and no room for extra wiggle. all force is going perfectly straight back. only downside? you have 2 cuts in the body for the screws in the bolt where drt can get in.

one arm does leave slight room for uneven pressure or wiggle.
