Alright cocker experts, I have questions for you
 
Boston Paintball twister cockers. Whats some background info
When did they start making them?
When did they stop?
How many differant models? Im not talking colors just body styles.
I know they had 3 styles, The standard, the SP lite? then the clamshell. Any others?
I also know they had left feed, vert, and Ive seen a few right feeds
They also had full, mini and p block
So anybody know how many of each make and model?
And how many total?

IIRC most of them were made to order, so there isn't any specific "model" or number were made.

Those kind of questions make me think you may have come across something. Will we be seeing pics soon?

I think the SP lite you are thinking of was called the Boston Express and the clamshell was called the ultralite. I've seen Rf, Cf and a few left feeds in both milling styles. Mini's are rare and one run was cut too short and are considered blems, but still out there. Chaos knows better than I do.

I'm with Tug, where are the pics?

hostiletek 09-18-2006 02:59 PM

Oh, Ive got 2 working on getting a third
 
I'll post pix if you guys really want them. All I was really doing was seeing if I could find out how rare they really are. I know they're hard to come by I was just looking for numbers. I was on the tribal OG last night and they always talk about total numbers and how many of each style. Then I was looking at the counts on the Aurora's so I just got curious. I wasnt trying to hide anything.

I'll see what info I can dig up on these for you.If T2 is online tonight I may have an answer right away

Those are the questions that pop up when someone thinks they might have found a hidden goodie somewhere. No accusations were intended.

You're lucky... we could have sent over the Spanish Inquisition! Then we would have found out what you were hiding!

When did they start making them? 97 i think, at least thats when I recall the ads appearing. they were BPS's response to the westwoods.

When did they stop? I think around the end of 2001/early 2002 I bought my Lite in 2001 I think.

How many differant models? Im not talking colors just body styles.
I know they had 3 styles, The standard, the SP lite? then the clamshell. Any others? I also know they had left feed, vert, and Ive seen a few right feeds
They also had full, mini and p block.

The standards and clamshells were the complete guns up until the final selloffs, and were build to order so there were a few options available.

The lites were the body kits and were sold stand alone until the end when a few were sold as complete guns. the lites always had full pre2k style blocks.

This is a lite compared to the above standards. you can see the milling differnce in the body windows and site rails.

Interestingly, the old site's faq always claimed they could not mill your cocker, but later added they could mill it to a lite. there were a lot of rumors that the twisters were not WGP bodies, and during the drought of vert feeds in 97-98, it would be no suprise they looked for alternatives.

So anybody know how many of each make and model? No idea, the clamshells were the rarest, supposidly requiring a lot of extra time, th elites were only produced for a short time.

And how many total? No idea, but based on the number i see for sale, i'd say on the order of twice as many as westwoods.

oh, and if anyone knows where my twister sandridge is, I'll offer a reward. I really want that gun back. and if you want to see more twisters, I reccomend Firepro84's site, just go to currently owned. http://www.firepro84.com/
