Hey everyone, I've always had a fascination with old guns, and I've decided that once my pump sells, I'm going to buy a Karni. I wanna know how hard cocker maintenance is. I'm not an expert at teching, but I usually can learn pretty fast. What would I be getting myself into?

I heard that the trigger on the karni is a bit stiff to walk. Have you tried looking into a Black Magic?

Teching would be a little hard, and maintenance is a breeze, unless it does not work.

Not really. I don't know a lot about cockers either. I just am looking for an E-Cocker.

karni triggers are not hard to walk at all... they are the same as any E2 trigger... timing an E-blade is not difficult at all and maintenance is not difficult either, once you have an autococker set up it is a tank.

this is borderline pornography.......(bookmarks thread)

Karni's aren't that hard. They are a bit easier than an old Cocker, like a 98. Or even a 92.

The old cockers are much harder to tech then something new like a Karni, yo shouldn't run into to many problems.

Well, I think I may be going a different route and getting another gun for now. I will get a Karni eventually, but now I know that I'll be safe.

Depends on the mood, how much booze was drank, and if she is in a freaky position.

cocker maintenance isnt too bad, like any gun, its the disassembly and assembly that can be a pain,
i've got 5 cockers, 2 karnis (1 pumped now) and 2 old mechs and a soon to be pump. if you know someone that can walk you through it, its not that bad to learn

You broke a tippmann???
Teach me please.

The funny thing about 'cocker maintenance, is if you get the right setup (mostly just a delrin bolt), the only thing you ever do to it is a few drops of oil in the ASA.

The hard part about autocockers are timing the suckers. If you get an E-Cocker, like a Karnivore, then the board does all that for you. If you really want to tinker with stuff, there's no substitue for a mechanical cocker. I'm not going to say they're smooth, but they shoot so amazingly badass that it's just too good to put down.
