You know they can stick their thumb in between the beavertail and the cocking rod, right?...

Yeah the beaver trail isn't to prevent players from thumbing the cocking rod. It's too protect the mask from getting slapped by the back block. If you have that rule, you guys should require every full sized cocker to have a cage over the cocking rod like the old Bob longs back in the early 90's

True, but its much more awkward and noticeable. The better designed beaver tails even more so.

NOT to protect your mask ( though it does that as well), its original purpose has always been an anti cheating device.

To quote Warpig...
WARPIG - World And Regional Paintball Information Guide
"Beaver Tail - "An anti-cheating device, the beaver tail is designed to make it hard for a player to boost their velocity by pressing on the cocking rod of an Autococker.""

I've only screwed around with thumbing a cocking rod so I wouldn't know how noticable it is ingame, but I'd think it would be just as noticable either way, unless they're pushing with their whole hand like they would an elevator button when they use the beavertail... But really, the ONLY beavertails that I've seen that prevent it are the ones that actually go around the cocking rod when it's cocked, which really aren't that abundant.

If you feel the need of cheating that bad by boosting your velocity, why not simply bring tools on the field?!? I find beavertail useful to prevent backblock from smacking your lens.

You mad, bro?

A few people have! I've seen several between here and PBN with varying degrees of success. Matter of fact I think Doc might have done it on an old angel somewhat recently? Sometimes it works, sometimes the anno is a slightly different shade and others they're completely off.

Hmm..I might go through with the ground up sniper build and start with a drilled body just to see what happens. It would count as a "project" at school. If it comes out with a weird splotch I'll just name it Gorbachev.

I could spend the extra time finalizing my pgp memorial before I take that plunge and request something I don't really want.

I do appreciate the sincere reply.

So i found out some info on it that really shocked me!

Apparently its a Aftershock Gen 4 SFL cocker and was owned by chris wright! Although it is drilled it was drilled by the aftershock team tech so there seems to be a ton of history with this thing. makes me love this pump even more!
