'Cocker come back?

First Empire with the resurrection and now it looks like BPS is starting things up again, could this be the beginning of what we've been dreaming about since Autocockers lost mainstream popularity? I'm pretty excited to see what happens, I would love it if WGP came back and made markers like the Karnivor and Orracle again... But im probably fantasizing a little too much there. At any rate you guys think we could see a return of the Mighty autococker?

WGP as a company isn't coming back, but the Resurrection is a pretty damn stout way to bring the AutoCocker back into production.

That is truly sad.
They own the rights to the name. The one that AUTOCOCKER stands for, yet they wont use it.
I love the Resi and the Sniper. I think they look fantastic and really bring back that classic look.

Actually.. I was just talking with a guy in a thread on MCarterbrown.. he was saying in the customcockers forum Jeff Orr was talking about getting back into it. No clue if they'd be under the same name.

Pretty sure KEE now owns all the names and properties that would have been part of the old WGP, which were sold to the JT/BE/VL corporate mess, and then that whole deal was bought up by KEE. That'd be why they can call the Resurrection an AutoCocker.

I could see Jeff Orr coming back, but he'd have to call a new company something new, or latch on to an existing company and run under their name.

See that's what I thought. I thought someone had bought out WGP just couldn't remember who. I realize they'd have to have a new name which is fine, I would just love to have sexy/highend autococker markers back in the game. IMO the orracle is the sexiest autococker milling ever.

So far the only thing BPS has done was the twister Lv1, hopefully that won't be the last thing they do but no sign of a twister cocker so far.

Essentially. The Karnivor has a bunch of scaley looking things in the milling. If you think it looks better you just might be a scaley man-fish

If you follow the thread in the news section they are working on a lot more than that.

So.. about the autococker come back.. Make an assessment!

Lolz but seriously. I think this would be really awesome to have back in the sport. Hopefully this will bring some more business back to Belsales which will spur them on to make more parts.. maybe even mill a few evolution bodies. I think most of the reason for leaving cockers behind (other than weight) have been debunked. They can be just as reliable as any other marker.. that and everyone finally realizes there is nothing uber magical about high end markers that make them that much better than anything else. Unless anodized in the milk that comes from a big space ball of tits.

Sorry couldn't resist one more

We likely won't see them back on a large scale. The used market is flooded with cheap Autocockers. Brand new ones are going to be costly to produce. They'll have to market them to new players and compete against present electro markers for that spot. Everyone who has been around for a while and is still around already knows what an Autococker is. I can't see the market for either group being very large. However, that would be up to the marketing teams to promote a new Autococker to both newer players versus current electros and to win over the people who already know what an Autococker is, which will be easier but not have as large a market. These re-productions are great! However, my feeling is these re-production models are just going to be not produced on a massive scale and be a tight knit niche market.

I miss my bone stock 1998 Autococker. That gun was stupidly smooth, quiet, efficient and reliable. Plus using it just felt bad ***. It was a perfect piece of history and showed the huge potential they had even 15 years ago (9-10 at the time when I owned it).
