small question on a 2004 prostock

Ok, I'm about to buy a prostock locally for 50$, completely stock, the only thing wrong is that it only shoots like 5 feet. I asked him the basics, reg zeroed out, ivg not turned in enough or too much, his reply was that he had no clue what those things were. I think its just something as small as the reg being zeroed out. Anyway, do you guys have any suggestions or do you think 50 is a good price for this particular piece of wgp goodness?

04s aren't bad and for $50 should be a deal.

As to what it could be, bolt upside down, reg either too high or low, IVG, bad spring, or major timing issue. If it's cycling though I say grab it and we'll get it figured out on here.

That's what I'm thinking. I'm looking for a new shooter platform. Seemed pretty unbeatable for only 50. He tells me its still cycling and everything. Just really short distance

People really mistake something as simple as that? I never knew it was even possible to mistake the right side up for the bolt. I haven't used a cocker in years but I use pump everyday I play. The bolt should be the same, basic hole in the bottom? I never thought people could do that.

You'd be surprised.
Given the symptoms it's the 1st thing (easiest) to check, but I've seen more that one person messing with everything else only to discover what a simple problem it was...and how they messed up their timing/pressure in the process of 'fixing' it!

That's what I did to my last cocker, literally found it in the woods. Posted on craigslist saying I found it for 2 years, nobody ever claimed it so I started using it then I thought it was broke so I attempted "fixing" it and made it so it wouldn't even cycle lol so I have it to a kid at the field and he fixed it so I let him keep it. Never paid a dime for it so neither did he.
