Good afternoon all.
First hellos all around. Great to be here.

Now the hard stuff. (sorta)

After 20 someodd years of throwing paint, I finally got myself an autococker. Sad, yes I know. But ever since a White Wolf Scenario game with Viper in Southeast Texas (where I got to use Mother's Supercocker) I fell in love.
I managed to get a 2K Cocker, almost totally stock (a Proto 14 barrel is the only upgrade), for 20 bucks at a garage sale I happen to pass.

So here's the question.
If you had a 2K cocker, and you wanted to slap dream parts on it, what would they be, in your opinion?

Thanks for your time.

I would add an ergonomic buttstock, a dovetail or picatinny rail, and a red dot sight then call it a day.


There are 101 types of people: those who understand binary, those who don't, and those who just can't count.

The buttstock would be good, but its always gotten in the way of my assault rush.
The rail might be a problem, but I like working problems.
What I really meant was front block setup, back block, beavertail, expansion chamber, and bolt.

Those sort of bits.
Any ideas?

There's alot of things from valves to 3 ways.

My first 2 things would be a delrin bolt and an LPR.

LPR's allow you to fine tune the marker.

Having now built 2 cockers and with current times its ALOT easier to build a cocker today then in their hay-day, if you like on-line shopping.

First thing is the bolt, the Al bolt it comes with is massive swap it out for anything, Worr Delerin Bolts are OK but an Orange Bolt (if you can get it) or any Delrin bolt is a perfect first upgrade. Try to buy NEW on the bolt some other components are ok used but a bolt ain't one of them.

Next up is a Spring Kit, Mad Man kit all the way, there is no other option.

If you're not replacing the valve buy a valve tool anyway and spare upseals, the brass valve like to eat them.

After that you can look into new Pnues, a Rock LPR by Palmer is your best bet, they're ugly but compact and work good, you could also look in an ANS Jack Hammer, fantastic LPR but abit large as well as the Evo LPR.

Ram's and 3-ways should be replaced together and with similar makers, the strokes on the 3-way typically tie into the ram lengths better. WGP has a good set with the mp-4 and Orcale (best 3-way you can buy) or Evo system also incredibly good.

The final peice and typically most expensive outside of moving on to Electronics (which are REALLY hard to find) is the in-line reg. A good in-line will allow you to sweet spot you marker dropping done the preasure, getting it to shoot faster, flatter and quieter. Not only that but a well timed and spotted cocker will be insanely effeicent. I recommend the ANS Gen-X II or AKA. Both a great with solid consistancy but are pricey at over $100 but there is a direct improvement overall.
