Great looking cocker but one question. Why would you want to tighten the cocking rod with a clamp? You won't be able to adjust your fps through the Ivg like your supposed to then. Also I recommend a small bore barrel to prevent rollouts. I like the lurker Eigenbarrel. But anyway....great looking gun.

yea I'd agree with Pirhana92 tightening the cocking rod serves no purpose other than to be a PITA to adjust velocity later and 2nd'd on the eigenbarrel. Amazing barrel probably the best 1 piece small bore barrel imho only other barrel that holds a candle to it in a small bore is the lapco .681 tightstick.

Apparently I didn't explain that well enough.

I don't tighten the rod into the hammer, I tighten the lug (visible part) onto the rod. Others come loose over time, and one fateful mid-game your timing goes haywire.

I went back to the stocker (after 3 other rod ends) because I could physically tighten/affix the timing lug onto the rod itself so it never comes loose.

Completely different than tightening the rod into the Hammer extra hard - which I would agree with you would be stupid.

Anywhere else and the sentence "test firing my cocker" would've scared me immensely.

I tighten mine down. Does depend on the hammer and sometimes just the fit / threading / wear of the rod itself but they do come loose on some guns. That's also why the majority of them are hex shaped or take an allen in the back. Some like the freeflow ones are larger diameter and knurled which is usually enough to tighten it by hand.

Nothing sucks more that shooting a string then as it backs out enough you suddenly load 4 balls into the barrel without your gun firing. What then? ugh.. Once that happens to you, you will always take the extra 1/2 second to tighten in your cocking rod in the chrono. I like the shocktech ones as they're hex in the back and the allen is the same size as the IVG so it's not even an extra tool.

The worst was when the rock started leaking under 55 degrees temp. In massachusetts that temp isn't uncommon in early morning games in fall.

IT was November, the first morning game at a local field. My friend and I were loading up and the refs called the walk-ons to leave. I gassed up my Autococker, and the rock regulator started leaking because it wasn't up to temp [to make the orings expand that extra needed bit].

I was playing one way or the other, I had my TiPX on as well. So I was walking out to the field with my leaking autococker, telling my friend how i just need to warm up the reg a few degrees to make the seals expand.

He said something I hadn't thought of...

"Why not just rub it really hard and friction will heat it up?"

Worth a shot I figured.



Fast forward 2 minutes and there I was standing in the middle of the walk-on group before game-start frantically stroking the LPR up and down, vigorously [and by extent suggestively] rubbing my 'Cocker to make it shoot right.

Two people broke out laughing because they understood the sheer awesome irony of the situation!

So did I.




But it worked, and the rock sealed seconds before the game started!

But my friend will never let me live that moment down...

Nor should he. Shame such as that must be refreshed often!

Great story!
