Review: Picked up this marker for $100 shipped off the web about a month ago and have been pleasantly surprised with the construction for such an inexpensive marker. For perspective, this is the first autococker I have owned, though I have tested others in the past.

The front block pneumatics look sharp and work really well for stock. I'm told that this marker is compatible with most aftermarket 'cocker' parts, though I have not upgraded any of the pneumatics yet to confirm that.

The website and manual say you can run it on co2, however I wouldn't recommend it unless you're using anti-siphon or remote because the inline reg is integrated with the ASA so you could easily put liquid into your reg and blow your gauge.

Accuracy with the stock barrel is really good, though the .693 bore can be a bit large if you're shooting smaller paint. I've been shooting medium paint and have been getting good results. This marker is more accurate than my Mag so far, though the rate of fire is not as fast. Once I get a better handle on timing, I will probably be able to increase the rate of fire with some tweaking.

Haven't had any leaks or problems yet, followed the advice of previous reviewers and ran some lube through the vertical ASA before my first time using it on the field. The only qualm I have with this marker stock is that I occassionally have issues with getting consistent velocity (maybe I just need to break in the inline reg more). Might be the inline reg, or it might be user error. I will continue using the marker and update the review if I have more information on this after extended use.

As a final thought, I agree with previous reviewers that the stock trigger is super stiff out of the box. However, once you pull it a few hundred times it breaks in and smooths out considerably. If you want to go even lighter, changing out the spring should be an easy fix.
Conclusion: Buy this marker if you're looking for a solid autococker at a really good price. It comes pre-drilled for eyes so if you want to eblade it you can have a pretty mean electro-cocker for under $300. Really good value for a well constructed autococker.
