Side Cocking Systems

Hey, I'm looking at side cocking systems liek the
"Rocket COck" and Rok'n'Kok"

Are they worth it, and does the cocking handle on the Rok'n'kok move with each shot, or is it a flush cocking system like on the new piranhas, and the Rocket Cock?????/
Thanks guys, and any girls who repsond
Ender

Well, the rocket cock I have heard will move a bit as the marker cycles. No personal experience, but this is why I went with the Hypur (rok-n-kok?) sold on Tippmans site and at C.O. Paintball. Unlike the Rocket, the handle stays stationary while the marker cycles (it's spring loaded to stay forward).

umm... i hate to tell you buddy but youve been misled. the rocket cock doesnt move with each shot. it might bounce around a bit because its not spring-loaded, but doesnt go flying in and out as you shoot. i personally reccommend the full boar rear cocking/rva. mine works perfectly, quiets the gun down, and has a very reliable company behind it. and most importantly, its METAL, unlike the rocket cock, which one of my friends has managed to break 3 times in the roughly 6 months that hes had it.

yeah, the cocking handle is a little awkward at first, but i got used to it real quick. and besides, you only need to cock it once. the reason to go with the full boar is that ive heard the guy that makes them is really good about customer service. if you manage to lose your cocking knob or something like that, hell send you a new one. like tippmann used to be, before they got stingy and started making you pay for new parts.

okay, i just looked at the i&i one and it doesnt have a beavertail. this is a definite downside. also, the cocking slot cover on the i&i sports one has to be glued in, whereas the full boar one just screws on, and can be removed for oiling (or you can oil through the screws) and the like. the i&i sports one is a rather permanent modification.

Darth> It does move though right? The Hypur does not. That is what I was refering to.

in trauma> The beavertail keeps you from getting hit in the mask/lense by the cocking rod when you are firing the marker.

the beaver tail also keeps people from hot boxing or thumbing the cocking rods to get higher velocities. most if not all tourneys require a bever tail if you have a rear cocking rod.
