The death of the autococker - the death of paintball!

Autocockers are no longer in production and paintball is a dying sport .
(At least in Canada)

- So sad.

That was true until a few months ago.

Empire, Palmers Pursuit and Boston paintball are all making Autocockers again.

They've been out of popular production for eight years, and just a month after they're getting rereleased by a front-running company, this thread pops up.

Crazy pills everywhere...

I can say for certain that if you have a working cocker that shoots just fine you are one of the three, or all of the above. 1- you are not an idiot. 2- you know someone who is not an idiot. 3- you have enough money to pay someone who is not an idiot. - jonotwist

PPS? Are you talking about the small run of swiss cheese cockers? Or are they actually starting up again?

AKA still produces merlin kits as well.

For PPS, I would presume he's meaning the Typhoon, which you can still buy new. Sure, the set up is different, but it all classic autococker parts/functions.

They'd need a tray to adapt the frame, an MQ'd resurrection with a 2k5/6 ego frame however... (or any compatible length frame with a closed bolt UTB).
