Just a little thread to try and and answer the question that keep coming up..

What Cockers can run on CO2?
All non-Electronic cockers. WGP recomends you use an Anti-syphoned tank.

What's an Anti-Syphon tank?
Warpig's Anti-Syphon page

What's a cockers normal operating pressure?
Around 350 PSI +/- 50 PSI.

Should I get an HPor LP HPA?
Both will work.

How do I build a cocker?
Otter's how to build a cocker page

How do I "sweet spot" my reg?
Moody's Sweet Spot

How do I time my cocker?
Timing Game Timing Video

What about E-Blades?
Moody's E-blade timing

What's the difference between cocker models by years other than milling?
The '97 change- Air chamber enlarged
The '98 change- Air chamber deepend making old Nelson valve springs worthless
Sear lug added to trigger frame, submitted by Acesn8s
The 2000 change- Banjo bolt redesigned changing the banjo bolt, body, and front block. New back block with new pull pin location requiring new bolts (Old bolts and back blocks combos will work on newer body's and visa verse)
The '03 change- Switch to hinge triggers, Right Feeds discontinued
The '04 change- P-blocks

What's a short stroke?
Its a failure to completely pull and release the trigger through a complete cycle. It can cause double feeding and chopping.

How do I aviod short stroking?
Three options: 1. Get an E-Frame. 2. Work on your techinque. 3. Tune your cocker to compensate for your shooting style.

How do I tune my cocker?
Tuning

How do I trouble shoot my cocker?
Moody's trouble shooting
Ask here at Spec-ops, PBReview, or PBNation

Where to get After market parts and upgrades?
Several places on-line carry them: I like Complusive the best.

Why does everyone say to get a barrel kit?
Cockers are closed bolt, so in the normal "rest" position the paint is no longer being held by the ball dents but is in teh barel. If the paint to barrel fit is not good the paint may roll out ofthe barrel entirely, or roll away from the bolt face causing a velocity drop.

What parts can't be shared by a full sized and a mini cocker?
Actualing rod, ASA, Pump arm, and Body.

What must I do to go from a hinge to a slider trigger?
Reverse the hosing on the 3-way.
Hinge (from back to front) Ram close, LPR, Ram Activate/Open
Slider (from Back to front) Ram Activate/Open, LPR, Ram Close

in addition to coker gnomes you need to add Back Block Mojo. That sexy movement of the back block that makes cockers amazing.

I believe a company by the name TechT makes a replacement 3-way arm so you can adjust the Trilogy

k, 1) turn down your lpr. If your hoses are blowing off, your lpr is WAAAAAAY too high. So turn that way down til the marker stops cycling, then slowly raises it and keep trying to cycle the marker til it does. Then go 1/4 turn more from there. This is also after you put the hoses back on.

Also, if you can fit them, get some tophats/peahats. They are like collars you can slide over the barbs when the hose is on them to keep them on there.

2)cock the marker before airing it up. Easiet way to fix that. Or hold the trigger back when you air it up, should cock the marker as soon as air hits it.
