Help me pimp my cocker.

15 October 2008 - 05:43 PM

Hey guys.

I'm buying a 1999 Autococker on Friday (used).

Now, I love the mechanical aspect of Cockers, and want to keep it fully mechanical.

I don't know too much about Cockers, but I am looking to put the best (of the best) parts on it. Cost is not an issue.

What would you recommend?

Also, could anyone tell me if there are any aftermarket parts already on this Cocker?

Thanks guys, look for the results!

New Barrel - 8" is really short, but will get the job done. I would go with something between 12" and 14". Everything else is just overkill (I'm looking at you 20"ers).

HPA - HPA provides better consistency than CO2, thus a better velocity spread, which gives better accuracy.

Stabilizer - This "stabilizes" CO2 (hence the name) providing better consistency and a better spread. It basically helps it stay a gas, not liquid.

Polished internals - Smoother operation, and it's free...

Low Pressure Kit - A pricey package that helps lower you operating pressure.

Stabilizer - Like said before, stabilizes your CO2

Regulator - Allows you to adjust operating pressure.

Rate of Fire
E-Grip - Makes you marker electronic, lighter trigger pull, adjustable firing modes. It works by having a solenoid, that will move a pin, that will trip the sear, which will in turn, fire the gun. Some boards can cycle at 25CPS(Cycles Per Second), and others, 30 plus

Response Trigger - The Response Trigger(R/T) is a piston that resets the trigger, while you push on it. The time that you can hold your finger on the trigger with the right pressure, and get it going full auto(f/a), is the "Sweet Spot". Mine is pretty easy to obtain the sweet spot, but others may have trouble. It all has to do with the tuning. It is tuned by turning that screw above the right grip until it gets the best response. This will work with Compressed air, but can be a ***** to tune.

Cyclone feed
- Gives you the miracle of the A-5, a loader powered by excess CO2 that turns a "cyclone" to load balls into your gun. It turns with each shot. There are many mods, but it can only max at 23-25BPS.

Agitating/Forcefeed Hopper - For all you non-A5 users, will feed balls faster into your marker by using an impeller(a wheel, much like the Cyclone's, that has paddles on it) to feed the balls. They feed much faster than any other.

- Allows faster feeding by mounting your feedneck vertically. Permanent mod, and requires you to send you gun into whoever makes it(I think Rufus Dawg).

New Trigger - Pointlesss unless you have an E-grip, then you can buy something that's walkable. APE makes a magnetic trigger, that is very walkable.

New Grips - Gives you a better, more cushy grip. Or a new look. YOUR 98 IS A 45 GRIP FRAME. A-5's cannot use aftermarket grips. That goes for X-7's and Triumphs.

New trigger - Sometimes a double trigger just feels nice.

Drop Forward - Moves the tank forward and down for better balance.

Remote Line - Takes that cumbersome tank off your gun altogether, and will let you put your tank on your back...you do need a pack that will hold it. THIS CANNOT BE USED WITH AN ANTI-SIPHON TANK...THE TUBE WILL ACT LIKE A SIPHON TUBE.

Stock - Gives you a better shooting platform, and is usually used for guns with a Remote.
