Rainmaker on the way?

So, I just picked up a Rainmaker on these forums and have a couple of questions about it. Ok, so I see all these super heavily modded Rainmakers and tell myself, there has to be a way to make these mechanical. Is there such a way? Ive done no research and havent a clue about these, but they were one of the "tournament" guns when I started playing, so I got nostalgic and bought it. Appreciating the help in advance guys. Also, are these cocker threaded?

I'm sure one of the experts will chime in soon enough, but you should be able to make it mechanical. The Rainmaker is essentially an electropneumatic Sterling. Replace the solenoid with a 3-way, find a way to actuate it and hook it up to the ram, and you should be set. You'll basically end up with a Sovereign.

In addition, I believe they are 'cocker thread.

Yup, definitely Cocker threaded. A mechanical Rainmaker would be astoundingly similar to a Vector, although different in physical layout.
