Lightning Autococker

What does everyone think of the Lightning autocockers from I & I sports? I check there every so often and I have noticed them for 109.95 + shipping. Doesn't seem to bad for backups or loaners. But I am wondering about compatibilty of parts from other cockers. Responses?

I don't know about them in Semi form, but a friend of mine uses one with a pump kit regularly and he never seems to have any problems.

Just bought what they said was a brand new one for $96 shipped. I just need a cheap pump kit and I'll have a nice sniper for little monies.

As an autococker, not great. As a Sniper 2, great. The stock pneumatics are essentially terrible.

a field i worked at back in the day sold quite a few of them when they were a new product, and i have to tell you to please steer clear of these.
i fought timing these markers with crap parts for many horrible hours.
unless you are planning to pump them, they are horrible.
the pneumatics had every imaginable problem.
they were a cheap knock off of the dye cockers, from the frame to the pneumatics, but all so much cheaper with horrible tolerances.

um i guess they looked ok, but, form does not meet function here.

Well, good thing I'm planning on making mine into a sniper.

How are they as an autococker if you put good pnues on them?

honestly, i never saw it done.

but my advice is to have a spare set if you buy one to save you the aggravation that you no doubt will be experiencing.
the problems were specifically the 3 way, and then the ram in that order.

good luck

When you get one problem fixed, another open magically apperas. BEWARE. Mine is a very reliable pump. I put an old reg on mine and it shoots beautifully.

I'm waiting on a new hpr, after that I'll let you know how they do with a new set of pneumatics on them. I'm going with a fairly low end wgp/kapp combo for now. It should still be a little better than the stock pneus.

Let me know how that turns out, i'll keep watching this post if you put he info up here. I wouldn't mind being able to switch mine out to the pneu's for a bit. I've never run a cocker on pneus before, mine went straight to pump.
