I'm just looking for a deeper understanding of the sport, man. Thanks for the help!
Sure thing! In a nutshell, the Autococker was an 'it' gun for a long time, and many people still enjoy shooting them. Like many older markers, it continues to have a niche, and rightfully so. Paintball has a rich history filled with many exceptionally fun markers that are still great to shoot today.
And also one of the best known Brass Eagle guns is an Autococker type. The Rainmaker. Still my favorite electro I own
The Rainmaker is not an Autococker; it's an electronic version of the Air Power Vector. Fun guns, the two of them.
I stand corrected then, I'd always been told they used a 'Cocker type pnuemos.
