That was the era of the mech semis, and in 92, guns like cockers and mags were mostly known for there bugs and quirks. A massive niche aftermarket developed just to make mags/cockers usable for tournaments, and such.

And what was Sterling thinking? They drag there feet for 2 years before telling Palmer they will be unable to make them.... then release a very similar gun shortly afterwards?

I guess thats not that strange. Especially in the 90s when everyone was ripping off everyone else.
