I mean as long as it doesnt have a Tungsten hammer, the body is fine. Autocockers hold up fine, the most wear and tear you will see is in the anno on the body caused by the backblock moving. Or if it has a metal frame not the composite common to that time, it will have some wear on the trigger frame from the time it was a semi. Those are the only places the parts really rub on each other.
Side-Swipe is right. As long as it is properly maintained autocockers will perform fine for many years.
