Define "Stock Mech" autococker - and explain to me how this is a better option than simple, inexpensive blow-backs. I can't say as I have ever seen a stock autococker - they're all tinkered with somehow.

Pneumag with q-oader. Other than that, I love Mags. Also, even in the days before agitator hoppers, 'Mags and 'Cockers had advantages over blow-backs. The blowback is a simple, inexpensive, common platform with known limitations if BPS, accuracy, efficiency, and reliability - this puts all the players on a fairly even starting point (as far as equipment).

I am not seeing how this is hard to enforce...
Is the gun blow-back operated? If not, it's out.
Does the gun have a battery in it? If so, it's out.
Does the hopper have a battery in it? If so, it's out. Does the hopper feed against gravity? If so, it's out.

I was hoping no one would ask that I would say "OUT" to the cyclone. I love it. It's pretty darn cool but is a step away from the level playing field.
Again - enjoying the exchange.
