Here are my thoughts-

Automags have always been, from a functional standpoint, ahead of the 'cockers of comparable time points.

Since day 1, automags have been way easier to use and less quirky. Of course, if you know how to tune 'cockers then they CAN work as well.

The mech's are pretty closely comparable. Both work very well. 'Cockers are more fun to some, but Automags are easier to use.

For pumps, 'cockers are the most common, but automags make just as good of a pump gun. Pump mags are crazy smooth. That said, snipers are more common. Both make great pump guns.

For electro, the Mag wins hands down. It's faster, doesn't ever chop, lighter, so forth.

Depends what you are into. As 'He Who Shall Not be Named' says, an autococker is a poor performing gun in all regards. From what I've seen, I'd have to agree.

Its simple, one is a semi auto that needs work to become a pump
the other is a pump that needs work to become semi auto.

what is this, 1995? :beathorse:

for every fanboy in one camp, there's an equal number of fanboys in the other.

they both fire paint at 300fps. shoot what's fun.

History repeats it's self.

Yes Any time the Cocker vs Mag or Nelson Vs Sheridan question is asked the same people are going to chime in with the same answers they have been giving for something between 1 and 30 years. Doesn't mean it is going to stop coming up, doesn't mean there aren't going to be new people added to each side.

When people stop asking, the guns will die, and Nish will be sad.

The pros and cons of these guns are described in detail all over the place and it's up to each person not only to choose the light side or the dark side, but to decide which is light and which is dark.



:p

just get a spyder they are just easier

Both are good guns if you have any mechanical aptitude, and aren't too hard to get and keep running. Here the main difference---mags are pretty close to idiot-proof, cockers are useless in the hands of an idiot.

And if you want both guns, build yourself an Aedes.
