Cocker Enthusiasts READ!!!

I'm not big into cockers, but I saw this, and figured everyone who likes autocockers should have a chance to bid on this. Look at this sexy *** gat.

It's not 1 of 1, and it's not custom by any stretch of the word.

It's an almost entirely stock Hybrid.

At least the price is right.

Mike is a "legendary gun tech"? guess that makes me god like?? he may have been a legend at his local field down in Florida, and god knows the boy/man could play, and can still play (RIP Strange), but legendary tech might be a stretch. lol

You know I've noticed this as well. The Mech Cocker, Automag, Angel and Pump sections seem to hold members with a much higher intelligence level than say the Spyder, Proto, Tippmann and DP sections.

I wouldn't say higher intelligence. Just bigger egos. I'm surprised they fit in their room to be honest. And I know markers very well. Just not old school such as cockers, mags, ICDs, etc. When I got into paintball Smart Parts was the gun to have. I can tech almost any gun from the smart parts era and later on. I know alot about them. So I'm not sure if you're calling me a Spyder/Tippmann scrub, but if so, you're mistaken. Most of the people who use cockers use are posers anyway and only like them to be noticed. I let my game get me noticed. Not my knowledge of old school markers. They just think walking on the field with a cocker gives them swag. Well, guess what, you want swag, grab a DM4-5 or a Shocker NXT.

Nothing to do with "swag". I personally am not a Cocker guy because of how complicated I thought they were. Turns out they aren't as bad as I thought. A mech Cocker is a tech's marker. Someone who enjoys the complexity of the external pneumatics. Some Cockers are down right gorgeous, some hideous. I've had both. Had an old black 2k2 that I thought was an eyesore. I have a polished 2k4 Pro Stock now that I think looks incredible. And when you fire one, you get to see it set in motion. Much like an 1800s pocket watch vs a Timex. Its easier to read the digital numbers and they are probably more accurate, but it isn't as fascinating or cool as the gears spinning the classic. Mech Cockers are neat to watch. The trigger slides an external rod, the rod controls an external 3 way valve, the valve routes air via external lines, the air forces an external piston back, the piston moves another external rod, the rod is attached to the hammer and bolt. That is why many people still like Cockers.

I mean I feel you on that. There are some on the cockers who like them. And I've seen some nice e cockers and mechs. I've shot a few too, and I'm not sayin I hate them. I just won't put my cash on them. My boy actually shoots an e cocker that's beautiful. PE I beleive? He used to use it for tourneys up till he got his g6r. They're nice guns but alot of people use them for my previously stated reasons. Gotta admit it's true.

That's mostly the kids. The truth about it all is that a Cocker is one of the slowest cycling markers there is. You can buy a much faster, much easier marker for less. Just comes down to what you want. I used to think I needed a marker that would fire 1000bps and carry 600 pods on the field. I learned its cheaper, easier and more fun to shoot something slower and see how far you get. I think an E Cocker is pointless myself but people buy them. For the most part Cockers already have a light trigger pull and they don't really cycle fast enough to walk/ramp. Do an E Cocker without eyes and you have one awesome slushy machine when you try to walk.

If I was gonna get into old school markers, I think I'd probably rather have an automag to be honest. I use one of my friends mech cocker every once in a while when there's mostly rental players on the field. But I'm not really a fan of it. As I said before I don't know much about cockers, so idk if it's just his or all mech cockers do it, but if you don't give it a complete trigger pull, it won't fully cycle for the next shot. I think that's kind of a pain.

Called short stroking and its the same on all mech Cockers. I'd rather use my Automags on the field, less chance of it getting fouled up. But my 04 Pro Stock is a beauty queen compared to 90% of Mags out there.
