- SuperStocker -

ok, i have decided on a superstocker for sure! sheridan-valved markers are me, and what better for pump play than a superstocker? (cept a palmerized SC cocker with a brass barrel and all the trimmings)

Anywayz, what can i have done to a superstocker? some people tell me ANYTHING I WANT, while others say nothing. I've heard there are two different valves, one for small co2 tanks (3.5s and 12 grams), and another for big tanks. also, a spring-fed feed tube can be installed to make sure my paint gets in the breech. Can i really have all this done if i have the money? i've never had a palmer marker, so i'm a n00b, but does the shop really do all this?

Another guy said that both a female and male stablizer would maximize performance if was going to use a big co2 or comp air tank. Would these regs help with consistency?

In all reality Superstocker, Houndstooth, and Paladin are all just names for different configurations. The two different valves are one that has less internal volume if you are running 12 grams exclusively, the other has larger internal volume made for fast pumping so you won't have drop off. Choose wether youd like SC feed or direct feed or hell even convertable feed. If you go stock class decide if you want it straight over the other barrel or offset to the right or left. Really just tell us your playing style and if you like to rock forward or back and we can help you.

My dream setup is polished nickel finish, phantom style feedtube, .45 frame, 12" ported barrel, and a Carter L stock

Too bad I can't afford it.

I just ordered mine yesturday. Lori is great to deal with. I asked for a few specific upgrades like a 45 frame, sprial venting on the barrel and a sight rail. It will have to be built so there is a bit of a wait, but no worries. They can do what ever you want, just ask.

The set-up that seems to work for me:

Sighting: Some of us like to sight down the top of the barrel, hence the 45 degree left offset feed.

Pump Stroke: Some people complain that the super stocker is very difficult to pump since there is no pump return spring. If you're used to shooting snipers and buzzards than yes it will take some time to get used to. Personally, I haven't found any difficulty with it at all and have been able to double tap pretty easily on bunkering moves. In fact, I've found that the super stocker has one of the smoothest pump strokes of all my pumps, not the softest, but definitely the smoothest.

Weight: Yes, it is heavy compared to a Phantom, but everything is heavy compared to a phantom. In reality, the weight is not issue. In fact, it helps to stabilize your shot.

Feed System: I wanted it to be right offset but the bolt pin would get in the way of the feed tube if you tried to run it in the rock-forward feed setup. You would only be able to rock-back. When bunkering, sometimes a second ball is needed to make the elimination and I found it took too much time to rock-back to load that second ball, especially when running a stock.

Gripframe: Although a bit more expensive, I think a 45 gripframe is much more comfortable than the standard frame. Of course, if you know someone who can mill out and modify a standard cocker 45 gripframe, you can save yourself some cash.

Other than that, everything else is pretty much standard. You don't have to worry about switching barrels and the thing shoots darts (depending on you, the shooter, of course). I'm pretty hard on my equipment, especially during tournament play, but the super stocker is a tank and, with proper maintenance, simply doesn't go down even when getting slammed on the ground during a superman slide.

I posted this on stockclasspaintball too just in case you miss this. Hope it helps. You can't go wrong with a super stocker.

the top SS in himurax' pic is actually a classic pattern finish of paint splotches.
even before he added to it, it was very expensive....
this is what it looked like when i owned it...

evilslave, i'm assuming the two different types of valves really wouldn't apply to a super stocker.
you'd be running either 12 grams or a 4oz...

the offset feedtube requires the ball detente at an odd location, hence the angled pump rod.

i just can't see you "moving" to a big tank w/ a super stocker...
but if you did screw on a 20oz... (lol) there would be no need to change the valving...
