One important consideration is what you want to do for a feedneck. Many cocker bodies have press-fit feednecks that don't play nicely when you want to replace them with something that clamps. Others ('05 Prostocks and Superstocks, Karnivores, etc) have threaded feednecks that are easily replaced. Just something to be aware of. Paintball Gateway has lots of cocker parts, if you want/need to buy something new.

Find a body you like and make sure you get the appropriate bolt, pump kit and back block.

 

Id look into a CCM pump kit and internals.  They are buttery smooth.  

 

Use whichever reg/tank setup you prefer.  Im a PPS stabilizer/12g kinda guy.  

 

For a trigger frame, look into CCM frames as well.  They are a little bit pricey, but completely worth it.  Otherwise, go with a benchmark.  

 

Also, remember to always underbore with your barrel, rollouts = velocity/accuracy loss.  Good luck with your build.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions.
