thats a dragun body right? they were mini's to begin with. were kind of a cheap knock off but the cool thing is they were still made well and use merlin size valve chambers. so even being a mini its got a bigger valve chamber than a normal 2k spec. would make for a nice mini-electro.

Long Live the Mech Cocker.
Possibly the largest assembly of pneucockers in one place
With a couple of extra frames that I picked up I've made these conversions. When called for, 10 BPS no problem.
The Tactical one was my first 1994 cocker

That explains a lot. It has Spider threads for the barrel not cocker threads. Most of the parts are cocker compadible.

Several years ago, I got invited to an impromptu weekend game, and needed a marker. I had several ready to go (Freestyle, E-Blade Fastback, etc.) but they were a bit much for a group of younger players mostly equipped with Tippmanns and various Spyder clones.

So I dug through my parts boxes and bins of spares and put together a pretty decent mechanical 'Cocker:



Lots of nice vintage parts, like the old 3K Max Flow, an ancient Bob Long "Longshot" barrel (14" non-stepped bore) an old Rock, an early CCM 3-way, a Tornado, etc. Worked fine, and afterwards, I hung it up on the wall where it stayed virtually ever since.

Last weekend a local group put together the first real play day of the year- finally- so I dusted off that same marker (unchanged, unaltered and unserviced) dumped some CO2 into the tank (the old Maxes could take it, SP recommended it for the old "shoebox" Shockers) since my HP compressor had died a couple of years ago, and went to play.

Worked great! Never had to adjust the velocity (275 to 285 all day long, even using old paint) never had to tweak any settings or timing, didn't even swap out the old 9V in the ancient VL2000. (Not a Revolution- a VL2000!)

Fully half the players there had no idea what it was, and since they'd never seen one and had never heard of one- and because it had all these cool hoses and whatnot all over the place- they thought it was some new and exotic custom gun.

Doc.

lol Nice. We recently had a ref appreciation day at my local field where I work. I brought some friends of mine whom I know from Xball. I was pleasantly surprised when two showed up with just mech cockers. One Trilly and one prostock. They left their electros at home.

I pull out my cockers at least once a month. No one else is shooting them. Even the pumps I see are CCM's or Empires. I recently started a team. I need to put a bug in the ear of the field owners to see if we can get a mech only tourney event going. Now THAT would be awesome.

What is great or funny about the idea is after the mechanical guns only game/ tourny 99% of the players could legally go to the bar for a beer.

I shot my freeflow tonight against a few newbs and some fella with a dm12. He must not of liked me one ball jonesin him because the last game of the night he rolled up on my weak side and shot me 7 times .... Not only will he feel like a man again, but I will also feel like a man knowing I waxed him twice with one ball to the face and one to the dye rotor that he so lovingly refers to as his baby.

I love playing again but I just can't wrap my head around a $1600 set up to play rec ball with newbs. Thats like Dale Jr bring his NASCAR to a high school drag race.
Was he trying to turn his gun or what?

I just bought 3 mechs in about 3 weeks lol. Its funny, I remember when I was about 13 and everyone had an autococker and now when I show up with my mechs even the refs ask me what kind of gun I have, or say damn thats old school. My newsest gun is an 04 prostock and some people at the field had quetions about my old guns and I was explaining that I just like old guns because 10 years ago when they were new I couldn't afford them, but now I can get them for relativly cheap. One person said oh yea I love autocockers too I've had a ton of them and then no joke he pointed at my 04prostock and said "Thats a pretty nice one right there, its a karnivor right?" I about fell over.

I was behind the left hand standup- he was shouting to the newbs to go to my right, I peeked to my left to see him coming up I turned to snap him but alas my cocker was only mech and his dm was set to kill. I got shot up- I think your analogy is perfect though.
