Cockers gave Cockers a bad name. They came stock from WGP with an absolutely garbage LPR, and a crappy 3-way that had way too many parts in it. Glenn Palmer started the aftermarket craze by creating a decent LPR, the Rock, which you needed just to run a Cocker for a few hours.

They eventually became pretty good out of the box, but for nearly 10 years a Cocker was virtually un-useable out of the box.

There is absolutely NO market for a mechanical closed bolt semi anymore - MCB is a very small, albeit fairly vocal, minority, but we don't count when it comes to KEE making decisions like bringing back the Cocker.

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “Is this not too generous to these Canadians?”

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”
