I've owned my 'cocker for 3 years now and I can honestly say that the
only problems I have are ones that I cause.  The only time the gun
doesn't work is when I have added some new mod or changed something to
tweak out just a little bit more performance, and once I get my new
feature cleanly integrated the gun works fine again.  If you get it
learn about it.  It's really quite simple and logical mechanically, and
if you understand it you can prevent problems or fix things before they
go bad.  The only parts on my gun which have needed replacement or
repair are a low pressure hose I blew out when installing a new
regulator, and the cup seal in the valve was going bad (likely due to my
formerly lax oiling habits) BBT replaced this for me while they had ny
gun for a trigger job.

            AUTOCOCKERS, are they as good as everyone i don't know says. i
mean my friends are either scared i am going to get one or are telling the
truth but they think they willl break down. that they are unreliable. the
thing that annoys me is that they have never ever held an autococker. only
seen them aimed at them.
         I am thinking of getting one because of the range. if it has got
more range then a 'mag then it has got more range than alot of things, and
i think that could keep you in the game for the whole time and keep you
playin' not sneakin'.
        If anyone out there with experiance in autocockers wants to help
me out. in any way. PLEASE DO SO. it would mean alot to  me.

thanx , mail me

I own one and my team mate has one.  Any yes everyone says they break down.
 HOWEVER,  I was taught to clean a gun (ANY gun) after firing.  I don't
really have a problem.  

I do have problems after letting someone else (my kid, teammate, etc.) play
with it.  And the easiest solutions are, buy a rock reg.  They take care of
those annoying timing problems rapidly. And prevent you from chopping
balls.

But BOY HOWDY it is wonderful long balling.  Our field is on an indian
reservation and all the guys from there have 'cockers, mags, typhoons  (go
Indian ***!).

And all will admit the 'cocker is a top of the line gun.  If you can get on
the net, read everything you can, start at Ravi's page and learn how the
gun works.  You'll be glad you did.  Write if you want further details.

        Autocockers are great guns. If they were unreliable, they wouldn't
be as widespread in the tourney world.

        In my experience, getting a paintgun for range is really kind of
stupid. In most cases, range isn't as important as being able to move
and get angles, and when you've executed that correctly, range is
somewhat of a non-issue. There are some people who are discerning about
range, but usually it's peripheral to their actual preference in guns -
that is, they first own a***er, get used to it, like it for some
reason or another, and then say, "I also like my***er because of its
range!". I know no people who have switched guns just to get "more range"
and been pleased that way.
        It doesn't have more range than a mag (and for those of you who
like to think otherwise, 10 feet of extra travel beyond the breakage
point sure as heck doesn't keep me in the game for the whole time :P)
        IMHO, there are two reasons to get an autococker:

        1) It's the perfect personalizer (trick it any way you want)

        2) It's got the smoothest trigger in the business.
