Some what uneasy about buying a 'Cocker

I'm making the switch from low-end to high-end and I've read all the threads on taking care of a Cocker and such. Two of my amigos have cockers and they love em. I've shot one of them and I like it as well. I also know that there are so many moving parts in a Cocker. I just need to know that it's not as hard as it looks/seems to maintain Cockers in excellent working condition.

I was also wondering what non waste of money upgrades would be. I know upgrading something like the beaver tail isnt nessecary for intance. But regulator barrel and such are.

Help is appreciated.

If you mean electronic I dont think so man, I think that sort of defeats the purpose of a Cocker.

Maintenance on cockers are fairly easy, if you chop a ball, take out the bolt run a pull through end to end.

Timing is a smidgen harder, not hard...but it is harder.
Timing the back block is extremely easy.
3-way and lug aren't bad either, but if you feel uneasy send it to a certified tech.
The good thing about cockers being so abundant and popular is that there are tons of knowledgeable techs, and more than enough people on these forums to help you out with your questions.

And, if you do decide to get a cocker, BUY USED!
Ions have significantly dropped resales on any guns in the 200-500 price range so benefit from this.

buy used, send it to a really good tech initially, and you shouldn't have to worry about timing it for a while.

To tell you the truth, if you don't your doing, and/or are inexpirienced, your gonna rip your hair out. Luckily, there are so many people and parts for your cocker, you should feel good knowing you can replace absolutely anything on it.

I agree with Napkin. Learn how to use them, let somebody show you or something, and then buy a used E1 off ebay or something. Very good idea... electronic is a million times better than mech IMO, but then again some like the mech...
