Products Used:
Stock 2003 wgp autococker pnuematics. They are not very good three way is leaky out of box and still leaks a little when timed properly. And yes i checked and lubed o rings still leaked. Ram would not reliably recock [wether it was the stock reg or the ram im not real sure] but it was not reliable. At first i thought i was short stroking but after careful expirementation i found this not to be tha case. And as far as the AIM pnuematics compare the pnuematics them selves seem to be ok and look really nice but the front block does not bolt down tight because the oring in front of the block screw isnt set deep enough. And the block bolt itself was a terribly cheap poor quality bolt that looked like a peice of pitted malformed badly cast jagged threaeded peice of junk. And it was i ended up stripping the hex wrench whole on it trying to get the block tight enough it wouldnt turn when the ram worked the block screwing up the alignment of my three way assembly. And i wouldnt have stripped it if it hadnt been soft cheap quality.
Marker Setup: 2003 Vert feed autococker with hinge trigger, pmi razor 14 inch barrel and Aim pnuematics.
Strengths: Pnuematics look good and seem to work better than stock.
Weaknesses: Ill fitting block and cheap soft poor quality block bolt [screw].
Review: Over all the pnuematics look very sharp and seem to function well the ram seems powerful and the regulater adjusts well was easy to use. Was just very disapointed that becuase of the softness and poor quality of the bolt screw i stripped the screw wich led to hours of work and frustration trying to get it tight while stripped lol. Plus it looked so rough on the thread part i really didnt want to screw it into my expensive cocker. And the oring in front of block never goes out of sight it just smashed and starts to squish apart on block face lol. the recess for it needs to be a hare deeper.
So if all you care about is looks it was ok i only paid 59 bucks for it on ebay and it does work better that the stock pnues i just worry about the reliabilty since the whole block is slighty crooked since i couldnt get it good and tight. I worry about the long range repercussions of a slightly kinked three way and ram.
Conclusion: So if all you want is bling bling that makes your cocker look better than stock and dont have the money to pay 150 bucks for ans or something better [like me] then look for it on ebay.
If they would just make the block and bolt better it would be an AWSOME deal. But as it stands you get what you pay for. so ill give it a seven for performance and cool looks.

Maybe you just got a bad one, it fit prefectly on my 04' vert cocker.
