Hello everyone, my name is Dan Westervelt and I am the owner of (Armorypaintball.com
, you should follow the facebook page
), the following are markers I decided to pluck and hold onto over my last three years of B/S/T.
Just a fair warning, all of my autocockers are undrilled
1 of Roughly 4-5 complete working prototypes: PBX Autorocker: Recently SOLD
Story behind these guns (Copied from UThomas' site):
In 2003-2004ish PBX developed the MQ valve for the autococker, basically replacing all the lower tube mechanical internals with an electronically driven solenoid/poppet setup There were many delays in getting it to market, and major supply issues. After the first batch of valves went out, they began advertising that they were going to be building a limited run midblock autococker (called the "autorocker") and aftermarket grip frame based around the MQ valve (which eliminates sear geometry issues and allows for better performance). They made a few prototypes (using legit WGP bodies as a base) and posted some videos on the internet of them shooting ~30 balls per second - very impressive and getting a lot of attention from the autococker community. Unfortunately, things fell apart at PBX in 2005 and the company effectively dissolved. A second wave of MQ valves had come out but the supply has since evaporated, and the 'autorocker' never hit the market. Apparently there are less than 10 other working models out there, with estimates putting the number at 4-5, and maybe another 30-50 bodies and frames that will probably never be put together or see the light of day. The code for the frame board for example was largely lost in a hard drive crash.
Please note: The PBX Autorocker is the fastest autococker ever produced. It is capable of an astounding 33bps (it is capable of this due to the MQ valve as well as a revolutionary 5-way front solenoid), has a fully function eye sytem and an LCD board. This is as good as it gets, and about as rare as it gets.
This specific guns history:
This very marker was the given to PBX's head web designer as a gift. The marker was initially put together by the creator himself, and was used sparsely for a year or two. From then on the marker went into storage and had not seen the light of day. I received this marker directly from its first owner, the head web designer for PBX, who did their hosting. He traded this very marker to Armory in an "untested" condition as the last of the last PBX Autorocker prototypes to ever be completed. From there the marker was sent directly to a friend and owner of another PBX, a rare someone familiar with them.
This marker was then completely disassembled, inspected, service, and reconstructed from the ground up. At the same time the upgrades you see were installed, and the completed project was shipped back to me. It is working flawlessly, as is kept in a padded suitcase which is kept in a climate controlled environment.
