I see a lot of cockers but...

No mags. Is there something in the rules against them? Is it because they can go uncapped RT?

One of our guys runs a mag with an old school Halo TSA or Primo loader on it to keep it legal.

Nothing in the rules about mags, but I think the RT creates a problem (if my memory serves me right) and may not be legal.

Back when the skills division was around, Blacklight Company and Muddy Water Boys were almost entirely shooting automags.

Made for some fun games in Oklahoma.

I'd attribute it to cockers being easier to find, but that's just me.

Rules prevent the use of X-Valves, RT's, P5 and Retro valves.

However, if you have a Level 7 or before, you should be good to go. I think you can even have a Level 10 kit in a Level 7 valve (if that's even possible).

My only Mag is a RT so it is banned by the rules.

I think you see more Autocockers because they are cooler and just fun to shoot.

So basically anything that can RT is off limits. Figures.

It needs to be updated then. We used them throughout our skills division play and even in to our open play. The way he capped them was with the hopper.

last time i looked at the rules it didnt specifically ban them either however i do remember them limiting the rate of fire by the hopper one was allowed to use. If they are in fact banned it kinda upsets me kuz i wanted to try this format out with my mag....
