Autocockers

Belsales Evolution-X (Banzai Splash)
My first custom build / restoration. I purchased this back around 2008, pieced it together using all original parts, and sent it off to anno. Banzai splash has long been one of my favorite schemes, and ATMF knocked it out of the park on this one. This is the gun that brought back splash anodizing.



Billy Ceranski's Prototype "Bumble Bee" SFL

I still need to do my own write-up for this, but here's a good bit of info: https://imgur.com/a/dz753



'02 Bad Boyz Toyz Westwood (Fire & Ice)

I picked this one up back in 2011, and when I received it it had been heavily modified. I was lucky enough to find a matching AA Black Ice Regulator (which may very well have been parted from this gun years ago), and a matching Teardrop Freak front someone parted out a P&P Cold Fusion. The internals & pnuematics were also restored to Shocktech parts. From what I've gathered, this is the last production Westwood ever made, and originally purchased in the middle of 2002. It's also been stated that at some point, it was owned by Danny Tiljak, formerly of Avalanche & Dynasty.

For the right price im sure he'd be willing to part with it BUT it would have to be the right price. The gun was built in midway thru 2002. He was able to get the body because he knew Dan Westwood, the man who milled the bodies. I'll work on gettin pics next time i go to his house.




Rocky Cagnoni's Team Avalanche STO
Avalanche was the first team to use STO Autocockers, and received theirs before they had been released to the public as they were sponsored by WGP for the 1996 season. All of them were done in the teal blue color seen, but Rocky's was unique in that he had his mini'ed. These were mostly stock, with the exception of a Taso / Pacific Paintball (KAPP) HPR. I still have the matching front block, but this was drilled out to 2k spec by one of it's previous owners so I'll need to have a banjo bolt reducer made before I can put it back on.



Planet Eclipse “Short Run” Autococker

I am the second owner of the pewter gun, originally purchased by TwoPouch of the NJ Jesters. He along with a few of his teammates had their guns (theirs were Evos) lasered at the Pennsylvania Amateur Open the last year of 10 man woodsball. This gun is still in remarkable condition considering the amount of use it's seen over the years.

These were sold around 2000, and were the last Autococker bodies to be milled in house with the later models done at Belsales. The most visible difference between these and the more common Eclipse Autocockers is the lack of the front triangle jewels. The vertical ASA came in dust black as opposed to being match anodized, and were available both with and without the set screw. The front block however was matched instead of chrome, these were also the last Autocockers from PE with matching shrouds, however they did not come with any barrel unlike other models. Additionally, they came with a standard black WGP preset hpr, and standard sear as the roller sears were not introduced until the following year. They were shipped in plain, unlabeled cardboard boxes like the earlier right feed models. Finally, there are some subtle differences in the milling as described by Jack below. More information on the full production run released the follow year can be found in Ravi's review.

But that body does look very familiar. If in right, it also had flat bottom grooves milled down the sides with a little platform/cup left on the pump arm side to guide the pump rod.
It looks like one of a short run that we did before we switched to Belsales for all out body machining. Hence the lack of front jewel pocket. It wasn't so much of a prototype as a short run (PLEASE don't ask me for the numbers!!) that was completed prior to Belsales taking up the reigns of machining all our bodies.
I hope that information is sufficient for you, and please, feel free to contact me at any time with questions. I'll always try my best to help out.

"Carter Era" Dye Autococker
There's not a whole lot of info about these, but they're the only Dye Autococker with a slider frame and an Angry / '99 STO 3-way, giving it a complete different feel than the Ultralites and Reflexes.



'97 P&P Supercocker
The first year of the Super Cocker, made by Cesear Pizzo, owner P&P Paintball and Detroit Fusion. This one had all the bells and whistles and an amazing splash anno later only found on the "Limited Edition" ones.



Bonebrake



Chipley Custom Machine '04 J2



Fireball Mountain Original



KAPP Flame



RMP Pro Series Kryptonite

Three of these were built around 2000 out of Rocky Mountain Paintball in Colorado. An employee at that the time, Bob (last name unknown), coaxed Frank Watson into building three of these (Frank was more into Angels at the time and later shot a green to black fade Dragon Intimidator). The raw bodies were purchased from KAPP and sent out to PK Selective for anno: one blue with lime and orange splash, one orange with lime and blue splash, and this lime with orange and blue splash. While waiting on the bodies, Bob hand picked internals and pneumatics for each one with his affinity for KAPP parts can be seen in each. These were made to rival the bigger name Aucockers and originally sold for $1,500 ea.



Jackal Machine RDL I picked this up as a raw body kit back in 2011. I spent a few years tracking down internals and finally got it out to ATMF, who did a phenomenal job with the anodizing. It was built using Jackal parts wherever possible, and using era correct parts sold through G3PB for the rest.

AKA Guns (Electro)

Descriptions and additional/better pictures will be added as time permits. I've borrowed a few pictures which should be obvious as place holders until then.

Elia Milled Evil M (EVM 009):



For those of you that don't know, I'm not going to take up too much space going into the history of Evil Ms. This project was started by gremlin75, and I was the one that finished it. The body and frame were both milled by Elia Paintball, while most of the rest of the parts are AKA. Anodizing is an electropolished type III done by Ano-Tech.

Tarantula Milled Evil M (no serial number):



'04 Featherlite (Swirl) Viking



'04 Immortal Viking



'01 Excal (EX # 00140)



'02 Viking (VK#A 0045)



'03 PBX/DC 'Samurai' Viking



'03 PBX Excal



'04 Highlander Excal



'04 Featherlite (Smooth) Excal

Misc.

Eclipse GMek
Of all the modern mechanical markers that have come out in the last few years, this one has the most personality to it. It quickly became one of my main shooters. I've upgraded most of the GRN parts to aluminum.



Planet Eclipse Emek
This was an impulse buy when eBay was running their 15% off entire purchases coupons back in December. Did I then buy an Etha2 just for the stock barrel & case? You bet! This is a great little gun and perfect for walk-on games and as a loaner.



AKA Black Widow Spyder (SN 0026)

Current Projects

Evil M Prototype

I am the second owner of this body, the first getting it directly from Aaron during his massive garage sale on The Tinker's Guild back in 2008 (link). I will be attempting to make it as close to originally intended as possible. A couple interesting notes on this one. The standard eye holes were plugged and the body drilled for an EBlade eye. Also, the top tube in front of the barrel contains some material not found on any of the blank bodies that were released. Finally, there is no serial number or marking where the serial number was removed.



'04 Tarantula Viking w/ PM5 UL Frame



VLM Spyder

One of ~30 VLM Spyder bodies made. Five of these were built at AKA and given to one of the teams they sponsored, the E'Ville Knights, which I've modeled this build after. With the bodies originally priced at $225, and accessories (Tornado valve, Lightning bolt, Mitey-Max LPC, Javelin barrel, Sidewinder regulator, detent cover, beavertail, & cocking rod) tacking on additional ~$350, plus milling and anodizing costs, their cost rivaled many private label Autocockers and kept them from having mainstream popularity. This body was milled by Jared at Destructive Customs (now owner of AKALMP) borrowing the design from one of the Autococker VLM factory millings.



WGP Karnivor

One of a small handful of Karnivor bodies that was left undrilled for eyes and unmilled for the eye ribbon and ball detent. I've been building this as both a mechanical and pump gun, and with parts representing the best available, and those used in WGP's Jole editions mid-block pumps.



Eaton Ripper Autococker



Doc Nickel Fastback Autococker
There aren't many of these out there, and even fewer that that are undrilled. I'm looking forward to putting this one together. I plan on having this made so it can be set up as either a pump, mech, or electro.

Your taste is exquisite. Deadly jealous of your Goo V2 LE. And it even has a matching one piece Ti Boomer. <sigh....> I've wanted one (it?) since I saw it sitting on the table at the 2k1 IAO.

Those evil M's are the sex. AKA would probably still be making those if the nasty SP business hadn't happened.

Nice collection. Love the nova ROFL. Bet most people here nowadays dont even know anything about that marker and how the entire barrel cycled to let the paint drop in.

Also, looks like you took that Ripper cocker pic straight from whitewolf's website. I miss Whitewolf and the old gang.

Very nice collection. Where in denver do you normally play? I can't remember ever seeing to Westwood, EVO or Ripper out at a field and those 3 I would most certainly remember. Unless they are collectors that don't get played with.
