Well i have my 03 shocker and soon to have a Cyborg.
I only have used the Mk1 Cyborg and the Mk1 03 Shocker
My 03 required airsmith work to WORK properly straight out of the box, it took me 2 months to get it working properly. Then dwell, rof, all - fiddle - fiddle - fiddle.
No one has complained in my neck of the woods that his Cyborg doesn't work immediately !!!!
the Cyborg was quieter than the Shocker
the trigger was better on the 03 shocker
the the Cyborg weight balance was better with the no drop forward
- i have medium size 9 hands, i cant hold the 03 without a drop forward
the accuracy seemed about the same.
the efficiency of the Cyborg is at least 2.5 times that of the 03
the recoil was weenie bit more than the 03
the Cyborg was better made, and has more meat to mill if you are "that way" inclined.
But the 03 Shocker looks sleek and sexy immediately.
Once i have upgraded the 03 to 2004 standards i will compare it to the 04 Cyborg.
That will mean the Cyborg will be at least 2/3'rds the price of a Shocker.
GET a Cyborg...
