Ok. So I picked up an old Super Cocker 98 a while back from the Pawn Shop. My intention is to make it a pump.
Only issue is that the trigger frame ASA screws are stripped, so I can't keep a tank on it. Also the trigger guard has been cut (minor issue).

A teammate has access to a full machine shop, and offered to re-drill the screws, as well as anything else I needed.
I was thinking about having him Half-Block it. Only, I have no idea what that actually does. I've heard it, and seen some back in the day (I was always an Angel kid though).

Here's a picture (still with the Pneumatics on)

So to sum it up...
A: What is Half-Blocking? What does it do?
B: Should I do it? Because this gun is pretty as is :evil:

Thanks in advance for the helping a cocker noob :P

Also, a halfblock pump's pump stroke usually isn't as smooth as a full body. And, I wouldn't half block that...it would ruin it IMO.

Agreed, don't half it. That's a bit of a rare beast. Grab a nice pair of 10-32 threaded nuts, and longer ASA screws. Run the screws through the holes, into the nuts, and you'll be all set. What you really need is a chrome Stabilizer and chrome duckbill, to bring her back to 1998 glory. Maybe grab a nice chrome Benchmark slider frame.

If I can find a chrome/silver pump handle, I'll be all over that.
Right now I'm doing a Red & Black scheme. Running a Black Hyper2, ASA, Pump handle, and Barrel.

I am going to have the guy cut out where the trigger connects to the pneumatics, so I can switch them back and forth easier.

Now I just need to get the feedneck/elbow issue solved. I either break them or they wobble and fall off :laugh:
Speaking of, how rare is the left hand feed? An older player at my field said that they were rather uncommon and hadn't seen one in a few years (He's also the one that was talking about half-blocking, but he was talking about someone elses cocker).

They are a bit uncommon. Try APP's atomic elbow. They tend to work well.

Why does everybody make their autocockers into Snipers? Seriously, guys...

Cause my other two pumps are a Splatmaster and a BE Tigershark.
Don't worry, I'm keeping it so I can switch back and forth easily. The cocker will be my bad weather gun (since it's my only all Mech one left)
