Half-blocks?

Craig Palmer says they're junk, I see them as being just the thing to bring back the popularity of a Cocker.

Is there a considerable wear factor with them? I'm more concerned about longevity and dependability than tweaking that last bit of speed from my Cocker. The mid-block setup looks good, but again, wear issues factor in here.

Anyone have long-term experience with the above?

Honestly, I used to hate the looks of a half-blocked gun. Now they are on all my Snipers.

Not only do you lose half the upper tube, but also: the beaver tail, the cocking rod, the back block, and a milled hammer. Thats a big weight reduction. But my favorite part is adjusting the velocity; the IVG is right there. No more removing the cocking rod, easing an allen wrench in there trying not to scratch the back block, etc.

I love them. And mine have no wear. I mean, the sled is delrin. Would you use a delrin bolt? Do they wear out? LOL

here is my sniper and I have three halfblock projects in the works. I like them. the only issue I have with them is my own fault of not properly tuning them.

He doesnt say they are junk.

There are better ways to remove the back block from a cocker though.

Better would be like a mercenary, basically the same linkage as a sheridan.

Id take one with a good feedneck.

Honestly any popit valve now days is basically a half blocked cocker...just a little more refined.

Love mine! It's just simpler. And heck, the PPS Blazer is practically a midblocked cocker!

Nothing junk about them, they are one of the most significant changes to autococker design in history. And one of the best, IMO.

Wear is not an issue on well-done halfblocks.

Anyone you would recommend?

Noxx55 has a pretty nice conversion, it seems. Anyone else doing it besides him?

hvacman did mine, turned out better than I could ever have imagined. I don't want to take pictures until my CCM .45 frame comes in, but I got a sponge anno and it's amazing.
