Found this cool looking body on Ebay, what is it and is it worth anything???

Pre 2K Autococker Body Assort Parts | eBay

Apearantly someone found it who knows what it is because it sat at $20 forever and just jumped up passed my max at $50. It looks like the shocktech/bad boyz toyz millings of that era but I couldn't find a single like marker that matched.

Cool swag to promote your sport!

Shipped price is valid to domestic buyers and will be USPS priority. International buyers are welcome, but will cover additional costs. Insurance costs are included. If you prefer an uninsured package, you the buyer will assume all risk once I ship.

Damn someone wants it, I don't know if I can justify spending a ton of money on a right Fred if it's just some no name one off.

That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.

Just a generic mid-90s one-off by some guy with a mill. There were thousands of 'em like that back in the day. A lot of 'em had somewhat similar looking features because people were more or less copying what they saw in the magazines (in those dim, dark pre-internet days ) but just because one kinda looks like another, doesn't mean it was made by a famous guy.

Back when I first started milling for money, the usual 'Cocker job was the customer would send in a body, a print-out of a photo of a 'Cocker he'd seen online, and a note that basically said "make it look like this".

And I made a bunch that way; I kinda-sorta copied a Westwood, once, a couple Supercockers, early Evolutions, lots of Carter one-offs, a couple Brad Nestle clones... Hell, a couple of times the customer would send in a photo of one of my own mill jobs, that somebody had cropped off the watermark and reposted as his own work.

Doc.

That actually looks a lot like a BBT to me. I would love to see the other side of that back block. That's why it reminds me of the BBT, beyond just the standard cuts. That screw in the middle looks a lot like one side of their quick pull wheel system. If the opposing side has or had the wheel, I'd put money on it being a BBT, or at a minimum having walked through their door at some point.

Doc's comment got me thinking, how many claimed "super rare" cockers that are claimed as a known company are actually one offs styled to look like a particular brand? Most of these companies are long out if business and I doubt a lot of them has their own serial number system.
