Review: Palmer's barrels are well known to be the most versatile barrels for closed bolt guns. Their wedgits (tiny dimples on the barrel) completely prevent rollouts. I have never had a rollout in my super stocker or my blazer (.682-.691 run through it). The Palmer's barrels are also famously accurate, handling mediocre paint better than any other barrel.

All the Super Stockers are hand built and hand tuned so you know you are going to be getting something high quality and custom. The attention that the Palmer's lavish on their markers is amazing, truly impressive.

Super Stockers handle 12grams well with well over 30 shots and great consistency. Upwards of 40 shots is normal for any Super Stocker on a warm day. They also can take a vertical co2 tank with great results. I regularly use a 3.5 oz tank and I love it.

The only weakness to Palmer Guns is the price. But seriously this is one case where you get what you pay for. They are durable, beautiful, handmade works of art. I have never had a problem with either of my palmers and they are always ready to go.
Conclusion: If you are into pump play seriously consider the Super Stocker. It is one of the finest markers I have had the pleasure of using. I have used it almost every weekend since I got it and it is always a joy to use. Simple, elegant design, less hassle than a carter while still being custom, with a few nice features over the phantom (which is also excellent).

If you try one you will want one.
