autocockers/ resurrection

first of all please dont bash me for this.
i have been on here for a while now but never really looked in to autocockers but have noticed they are kind of expensive at times like the resurrection. my question is what makes them worth so much? thank you in advance for your input

The Resurrection appears expensive because it's a tremendous package. You get a mid-blocked Cocker factory, a great clamping feedneck, what I think is the best slide trigger ever to sit on a Cocker, an on/off ASA, and a 5-bore barrel kit. That's a lot of gear on a Cocker.

I'd run the numbers on them a while back. If you adjust for inflation, the Resurrection today costs the same as Cockers throughout paintball's history, and that's without the value of the barrel kit. Based on that, it's almost like getting a great barrel set for free when you buy the Resurrection.

Get your hands on one and shoot it a bit. I think the sticker shock might just dissolve.

Here is how I related to it. Your looking at a BRAND NEW autococker as far as technology (not that different in the last 5 years) but with a superior barrel kit worth $100 alone. The efficiency gains on output of a compressed air tank mean you get the most shots period.

If your feeling timid about spending $350/$400 for a used marker, look at something similar but not as new. There are many autocockers I've seen on here under $200 that were sweet looking with minimal mods. If you want to try to trade it later, many a gun whore will trade for a good looking marker.

Or if you want to come to the other spectrum, check out an automag.

All I had to do was put one in my hands. I knew I wanted one before that, but holding one sealed the deal. I even parted with a gun that I thought I'd shoot forever to get my Resurrection.

The resurrection really is an amazing marker. I sold my lv1 because I was not really shooting it. If you like the challenge of a mech marker you would like the resurrection. It will make you move more and hide behind your gun less. My game has improved greatly.

I prefer the resurrection to my luxe oled...the should say something in itself. Buy one, you won't regret it. They are fantastic guns. An absolute blast to play with.

I have been out of the game for a while and am just now coming back and in my opinion 550 for a good cocker (resurrection) isn't that big of a deal. in my day people were paying 1200+ for a good cocker like the akalmp revenge, ccm, and the smart parts evolution-x . ive played with many guns and a cocker is still in my favorite. just doesn't seem so expensive to me when I look at what they use to cost.

Don't forget, that $550 also gets you a five-bore barrel kit that's just outstanding. It's really like paying $400 for the gun and then buying a great barrel kit.
