The f/x Cocker "Sleeper" features the award winning power feed design and anti-doubler, plus an Armson Pro-Series barrel, and Pro-Series .45 Frame, on an Autococker body. It's a bit Plain Jane next to the new f/x STO, but one glimpse of the nickel STO front end, and all bets are off! Available in Satin Black, Blue, Red, & Purple.
The Pro-Team Products Sleeper Autococker is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
this gun rules the trigger pull is not nearly as hard to get used to as most people have told me and it is actually preety light (the pull) I put a pmi secondary reg and a tk drop forward on it. I use a 48 ci tank so with that huge drop forward on it, it ends up ballencing it out perfectly.
I got the blue one and it looks nothing like the picture on the website. that sounds bad but its really a good thing, the paint isnt a baby blue like the pics show its more like the blue that you see on most 2000 angel lcd's. It's no angel but its defiately worth the mony. when I bought it I was also looking at buying a 2001 sto, I am glad I didnt. Dont get me wrong I'm sure the sto has some features that the sleeper doesnt but for the mony I saved its defiately worth it.
it looks better with new grips I recomend the dye sticky. other that that I havent found anything to complain about yet,and that doesnt happen very often. However the barrel is a bit loud and will not shoot through paint very well but I just got it so I'll have to run some more tests on it with other paint. I am getting a boomstick so I dont have to worry about the stock barrel though. I recomend the same for you if you buy this gun or any gun.
I would recomend the sleeper to anyone who doesnt want to spend a lot but wants a nicely tricked cocker. they recomend using a secondary regulator and I concur. It is much so worth how much it costs.
Autococker '00, F/X Micrococker, Sniper III (Pump verion of the Autococker, although it's actually the other other way around... [The autococker is a semi verion of the Sniper, but I'm not gonna get all technical.])
TearDrop dropforward w/bottom line setup, Armson Stealth rifled barrel... other than that it's pretty much stock.
I've had a slew of problems with the powerfeed and timing system. I reccommend replacing the threaded timing rod with a stationary one, and the powerfeed... if you can, get it converted to vertical.
Personally? I had high hopes for this 'gun. It uses STO low-pressure internals, but it's packaged without the flashy exterior of the STO Cocker. Those external mods must cost alot, becuase the price of the Sleeper is a full $400.00 lower than the STO. Hell, there might even be a $500.00 diffirence now. I set it up for use with a dropforward when I got it, because I don't like running remote and I've never seen ANYone running vertical N2. My first time with it at the field started off good, I chronoed in at about 270 fps with no problem. Then I went out into the field, and WHOA! Ten shots and the thing starts to chop.
I had to take it apart on the field to clean it (A process that incocles removing the bolt from the body, actually not too hard...), but the powerfeeed area is near IMPOSSIBLE to clean on the field. Thus, breaking one ball leads to a HUGE slowdown in feeding rate, making you chop more and more. At first, I thought that it must be out of time, so I hauled it off the field and began some tweaking. To my suprise, the 'gun was perfectly timed! I tried retiming it anyway, and then I cleaned the powerfeed area as best I could and went back to the field. Same nonsense, Shot-shot-shot-chop-shot-chop-chop-chop. This is quite possible THE most annoying cocker to deal with. DON'T waste your money. If you want a cheap cocker, simply buy the model of the current year. They can be counted on to work most of the time.
