Review: When I first got the body, I was really amazed by the way it looks. It was a custom cocker for my friend so I quickly put it together. Everything fits perfectly and it was a really nice faded silver to blue color. I got this body on ebay for $190 including the trigger and such. I was very satisfied about everything.

The milling on the body is very nice in my opinion. It has a removable feedneck which I thought was great and the clamp isn't bad at all. The body overall is lightweight compared to my 03 cocker. The internal were stock internals so I guess thats the same for most gun. The threads on the gun was nothing but perfect. Didn't have any trouble screwing anything on. The trigger frame that came w/ the gun was great. I totally loved it. It had cam adjusters on it already so that was really neat. The 6 piece barrel that came w/ the set was great as well. Sizes were .689, .692, .687. It is a 2 piece barrel and you don't see any lines in the middle where the two piece joins. It shoots pretty well compared to my dye excel. The front block and back block were the same as any... except I didn't like the front block screw as much... however, that is just personal preference.

The only thing I didn't like about the gun was maybe the anod job. They are a little bit cheap wtih paint, maybe if you gotten another color it would be better. But compared to the blue on my wgp cocker, the blue on the aim's body looks kind of cheap.. maybe it needs more layer ? I don't know... the paint didnt look thick thats my opinion.
Conclusion: If you want to build your own custom cocker w/o spending 250-300 for just the body, this is a great option. I would recommend this to ANYONE. Despite the color difference that I have, I think its almost perfect. AIM did a great job with everything going from the body to trigger to barrel. Of course I only play rec ball, so maybe some tourny players might want to get a barrel kit say freak or cp for it. I would give this rating over a 9.5/10 for everything. Not a 10 because the color wasnt all that great, but of course Im picky... and not a 9 because I only think it deserves more than that.
Rating:
10 out of 10
