Grin Reaper Thursday, July 14th, 2005
Period of
Product Use:
6 months
More than 5 years
Products Used:
Stock wgp
Marker Setup: Hollow point 3-way , Jam-anti chop bolt, jackal 90*swing, reloader B, on a mech autococker what else matters??
How many times have you seen a ref ask a guy with a mech. cocker if he had it on auto? for the bolt.!!!
Strengths: None... out-dated
Weaknesses: Its heavy! Questions about long term wear.
Review: The old way of thinking told us that to get a cocker to stop chopping you got a heavy hammer and light springs.

Light spring on a heavy hammer makes for a rather slow reaction.
Spent $50 for a hammer spring kit.
And most of us spent $30 to $50 on a light bolt, pump arm back block and the list goes on.

New products namely the Jam Anti-chop Bolt, have now made this very simple. Take the $50 you were going to spend on a light bolt and buy the Jam Bolt (it only wieghs 44 grams!!!)
Why spend $50 to make your cocker heavier and slow the timing

The new thinking says buy a Jam Bolt!!!
To address the low pressure sales pitch I have an aka internals kit tornado valve hammer and matched aka springs and a SLIK light wieght cocking rod and a kapp low pressure chamber, aka 2-liter and run 180psi.
If you still want to buy a hammer buy the lightest ie. fastest hammer you can. Then buy a SLIK cocking rod to reduce the wieght even more.

Conclusion: Don't bother its now on the History channel.
Why spend money to slow your timing, increase your overall wieght, and then after you read some reviews wonder if this thing is eating your nice new body.
