Empire Resurrection Autococker review

Empire Resurrection Autococker Review and parts.

Pro:
  • Snappy trigger and generally smooth (not glass but much better that stock WGP) conservative timing
  • pneumatics are interchangeable with old AC parts (not that you need to)
  • LPR is a AKA SMC-III (IMO the best LPR out)
  • Planet Eclipse detents
  • ST Bomb like 3way. Very smooth
  • Ram is serviceable without removing it from the front block
  • All parts were not death Loctited on (thanks Empire)
  • Ram and 3way lock screws
  • Ram Shaft has wrench flats (no more plier marks)
  • 3way shaft is one piece
  • bolt is a three oring style
  • SMALL to large bore barrel kit (the large bore will be freak milled)
  • Timed out of the box, just add tank hopper and fun.
  • HPR is a removable and replaceable but why would you........
  • Bleeding On/Off
  • Finish dust is just right and good color match between parts (Black version)
  • Milling is nice except one part.......see cons
  • Hogue style bubble grips are good for big hands
  • Trigger shoe is large and accommodation for gloved hands


    Cons:
  • Lack of lube/oil in HPR and LPR IT CAME DRY.
  • Personally I do not like the T-rail bottom-line connection type
  • Milling the "Empire" milled into the side......I'm not a fan of forced branding

Measurements:
  • Bottom of ASA to top of feedneck 8.5"
  • Length of gun from the very back to the end of the pneumatics 11"
  • Width of body at max 1.5"
  • Barrel backs 7.5" and front lengths 9" Total together is 14"
  • W x L x H of the foam in the box 15.5" x 5" x 10"



It came today 5/31/2013









And yes the new acronym is for the Autococker Resurrection is "ACR". Or "AFR" for your WGP Autococker purest (AutoFocker Resurrection)

350 psi from the factory??? I think my sniper is 280 psi factory set.

After approx. a case of paint the reg sweet-spotted at 260/270 PSI with the rear hammer spring adj just a smidge out form flush.



Slotted trigger plate......but a shorter slot than older WGP plates.



Trigger Glide Screws very similar to CCM 86 slider.



Nylon set/lock screws very similar to the ANS 3way actuators coupler.



The 3way body is milled like the old SS Check-it products 3way, but the 3way shaft is a one piece integrated coupler like Dye, and CCM

LPR...............SMC-III "The LPR main piston was dry no lube" the other parts had what looked to be dow 33



Here is a AKA SMC-III



Belsales like Ram Minus optional barb location. Smooth but not as smooth as a belsales.









Not happy with the DRY non lubed Reg. YES NO LUBE/OIL At ALL







Oh Yes OOOOH Yes I did!

That was the best/most informative thread I've seen in months. Better than "help me! my gauge is creeping past 200!"

I want a review like this of every new gun out

Great job, I've been thinking about picking one up, this legit influenced my decision.

I ended up buying two, could not decide on which color I wanted. Ended up keeping the black one.

Awesome write up Doc, and a perfect place to post it.

I sent mine back to KEE, mine had a milling error on the top right body tube so it's getting replaced.

Already have a PPS LT trilogy valve to throw in it, with some new springs I'm interested to see how well it performs.

Ok today was my first day out with the new ACR. the day starts at the radar shooting 280-285 @ 350psi at the inline reg, and a .685 barrel with a good match to GI-sport 5-STAR
IMPERIAL. After the first 500 rounds of break-in I went back to the radar........ FPS was all over the place. Changed to a .680 back which fixed the issue. Another 400 rounds ended the day.

Got home and sweet spotted the reg over a big red radar (empire .680 barrel and same paint)......281, 286, 283....... Checked the regs PSI. It went from factory 350psi to 260/270 psi. The hammer spring adjuster is just a smidge out from flush with the back of the body.


Air Efficient.....Yes! I run a 48/4500 normally running in the 3500/4000 PSI after cooling. the lowest it got between fill-ups (games) was 3000psi. I think a lot of the efficient operation is due to the o-ring in the valve body which seals the valve stem. For those who want to put a PPS, AKA , or check-it 11/16" valve in there marker will just be burning $$$.

I just found my go-to marker.

This is a Nummech drop T-rail http://www.nummech.com/prod_item_traildrop.html

It provides great balance.
