Tell me about Dye 'Cockers

Do they take standard 'Cocker parts/upgrades, or do they need specific peices (besides he bolt)? Are they pre 2k or post 2k style? How's the valve and bolt assembly?

And finally, would it be good for a pump conversion?

Thanks!

Well there were actually several different models...

The was a pre2k that in all honesty I know very little about. The milling was modest and with few truly custom parts.

The newer models (Reflex & Ultralite) were very different. The full-size version was the Reflex, the minicocker was the Ultralite. Both featured the new Dye swing trigger, the Ultralite's was milled down a bit. The Ram was about on par with an STO, the 3-way was a spin-off of the Shocktech Bomb. The 2002 versions used an FGP reg with DYE knob, while the 2003 versions had Dye's new Rocket LPR. The valve was basically a stainless WGP copy, and the hammer was stainless as well with 2 nylon lock-down screws.
The bolts were evolution/STO in both models I believe (Ultralite for sure). Ultralite came with an Ultralite Boomstick, while the Reflex came with the Stainless equivalent. The Ultralite also included a Dye Izon sight.

I actually owned an Ultralite for a short while, I was unimpressed with it's "performance" and it soon found its way out the door in favor of a Shocktech SFL...

Missed that the first time around, and I say ABSOLUTELY! The Reflex is gonna be your best bet for a cheap conversion (Minicocker pump kits tend to be pricier in my experience). The sooner you get those stock Dye pneumatics off the gun the better!

Cool. I found a semi-inexpensive body for sale (I believe a Reflex). I've wanted a Sniper for a while, and just got a good deal on a pump kit. So I've been looking around for good looking/good performance peices.

Anychance this body will take an Eclipse valve and KAPP hammer assembly? I got these off the AO Pay it Forward for this project.

Thanks!
