03 vertical cockers, i have tried, but this is the only autococker i have ever owned.
stock evil omen
high pressure air because the reg wasn't very consistant
extremely accurate, also lifetime warrenty
1) not very fast
2) gas hog
first of all, this isn't even a real autococker... it's a knock off. with that being said, it would be very hard to find upgrades for it or repairs. i know it has a lifetime warrenty, but mine didn't because i bought it on ebay and didn't have a receipt of sale. second of all it was built kind of shoddily. my reg would screw in and out, and i had to take it off and put teflon tape to keep it still. (this is out of the box). the triggure pull was a little long and when i shot fast, i would double feed. (you know, when you don't pull all the way back and nothing comes out but the next shot 2 balls come out...)
accuracy? wow, this thing was extremely accurate. i guess i cant rag on it too much, because it wasn't THAT slow, but it wasn't that fast either. also, i had a problem with my quick release pin FLYING OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF A GAME! (several times... i had to fight with it to get it to stick)
did i mention it's a GAS HOG!!! it would burn a whole 88cc 4500 tank in 750 shots! (you are supposed to get about 15 shots per cc, so it should be around 1320 shots
well it's not so bad of a gun... although it is pretty expensive. $425??? damn, you could buy so many better guns for that same price.
so i guess it's an above average gun at best, but you could do so much better for the same price. i would take an 03 cocker any day over this and it's almost half the price.
i bought my rival, played with it for 2 weeks and then sold it on ebay, because it wasn't what i expected, but i like electronic guns... like my new omen!! :0) (shameless plug)
I think your looking for cubic inch, secondly the amount of shots per cubic INCH depends on the operating pressure, and the fps and the out put pressure of the tank... how many cockers with adjustable regs, after market barrels exist for under 450$ ?
Ever wonder if the problems you had with your marker was because you bought it second hand on ebay?? Maybe the guy who owned it before you beat on it. Might wanna consider buying new from a store next time
I buy misadjusted cockers all the time on ebay. they buy a nice gun and nice parts and set them wrong and get mad and sell them and say they need to be retimed. people who have never had a cocker are scared to bid because the auction says that the timing is bad. that means I get them cheaply and usually it is something like twisting the knob on the LPR or resetting the hammer lug and then I have a upped gun for small cash. I love that clueless people sell nice stuff on ebay. and with a cocker, every part is replacable. most likely the worst you will see is that the anno is beat or that the ram is bent or something cheap and easy. the only way it is a complete loss is if the threads for the jamb nut, IVG or barrel are trashed.
