13 August 2008 - 05:26 PMCockers are made for CO2 use... no use in carrying a different marker after you put so much time and money into one. CO2 will in no way, shape, or form damage a mechanical cocker. I meant the 2 liter can handle CO2 but not as well as a Stabilizer can because a Stabilizer was made for CO2 use. It has an expansion chamber and regulator built in one. Like I said though there is no reason at all to use a lower grade marker for CO2 use when a cocker will handle it so much better than a spyder ever could. I used nothing but straight CO2 on my prostock and on my $1100 project cocker and I have nothing but amazing results. I only carry a second marker in case I ever need it... It is actually just my prostock now. I used to carry a pistol and the prostock because I knew my cocker would never fail me.
Will a stabilizer be able to use CO2 along with HPA? I'm not sure right now but I want to get a reg that can handle both CO2 and HPA if in the future I decide to go one way or the other (haven't tried HPA yet so yet to make a decision).
12 August 2008 - 09:49 PMit can handle co2 but the stabilizer is better at it
Sry can u clarify this I couldn't quite understand what you are getting at:
1) what is "it" in "it can handle"
2) what is "it" in the "is better at it" (better at handling CO2?)
Also, just to clarify, I'm not going to be using CO2 at all on this (that's what a spyder is for )
12 August 2008 - 05:45 PMPalmer Fatty or AKA 2-liter +
The reason why is because a cocker's normal operating range is right in the middle of these regulator's operational spans.
(FYI The problem with the RT mag is you can not un-responce trigger it like you can an RT A-5 and 98 by pulling the air line, its all built in on the mag. Also most fields don't allow RT triggers due to insurance reasons so if you have an RT you cannot use it)
So you say fatty or 2-liter assuming that the cocker is using HPA, right?
12 August 2008 - 10:01 AMNo they get banned for being full auto not shooting faster. A cocker can shoot 30bps too if set up right... They may be able to achieve a slightly higher RoF but I doubt it would be enough to notice. The whole banning thing is so you don't have people running around in uncapped full auto modes overshooting each other or injuring each other. A place that bans mags would only be banning the RT ones and they would also ban the RT tippmanns as well. It is the trigger that gets it banned not the marker itself.
The X Valve is actually a combo Reg/Valve and the .04 means the recharge rate is 25bps before you suffer shootdown. What does that mean for a cocker? Well the palmer's stabilizers have a recharge rate of 30bps and the AKA 2liter is somewhere in that neighborhood as well. That pretty much amounts to equal performance again.
Speaking of palmer's stabilizer ( )
Palmer's stabilizer vs. AKA Sidewinder/other AKA regs vs. any other reg... Don't really know how they differ but I hear both palmers and aka are great... which one would I want for a project like this?
11 August 2008 - 09:54 PMYou can make a cocker pinch paint like that easily if you have a good ram and a light main spring. I wouldn't really say mags have that advantage I would really say they are equal all around with the cocker coming out on top as far as looks and upgrades.
Mags aren't better performance wise they are really equal markers all around. They will also accept CO2 as long as they don't use the X-valve because it is way too "delicate" and can be damaged by CO2. Get a good smooth ram with QEVs, a good LPR, and a light main spring and you wont chop paint.
Speaking of the X-Valve, does that and the other mag upgrades allow a mag to shoot faster than a custom cocker??? (this is why they are banned amirite?) It says on the description that it will recharge faster which I extrapolate to mean it will "shoot" faster. I know a lot (if not most) things in paintball are more hype than performance so is this actually true? (or are they getting banned for no reason?)
