Resurrection AC...the good, the bad, the ugly

Aaaccckk!

I am a Mag guy...three Classic Automags (one of which is a project in the works) and a Micromag. Nonetheless...I find myself drawn to buying the Empire Resurrection after the new year. Help me...I am not a Cocker guy yet I seem to be drawn like a moth to a flame! My Sniper II seems determined that I give it a kindred spirit in my gearbox.

For those who have had a Resurrection for a while, give me the real story on how it is standing up.

Coming out of time?

Bizarre and unexplained instances of the wrath of Velcor coming down on you and making your Resurrection stop working?

Chants and incantations that you regularly do to make it work?

Please give me the worst of the Resurrection experience so that I may know the truth of what may lies down this path!

To be honest with you.... I did not like the trigger on mine one bit. Part of the reason why I traded it away.

Had the third one in my state. Works like a dream traded it for a pump though. Worst story i have is a teammate had one and the pump arm completely sheared off but we are pretty sure that was a blue moon kinda thing.

I just worked on a resurrection for a local guy. I think he messed with it but it was all out of time and the pressures were way off. I just took it apart and re lubed and used my pressure gauge to set the HPR to stock (350) and it worked like a charm

The trigger was a bit odd. It would take some getting used to thats for sure. Oh and it was kinda gritty feeling. I am sure that will go away with use but out of the box it was a bit wonky.

I have been doing triggers on cockers since late 96.... so for me they felt worse than even what my lowest end 94 cocker has going on.

Just remember the autococker haiku and you'll be ok!

Did it work before?
You screwed with it, didn't you?
Got what you deserve.

I actually liked the new trigger plate design and the ones I used were smooth but snappy. Not as nice as my trigger jobs but very good for out of the box.
Good Shooters. But a used autococker can be had for much less money so I can't recommend one.

But you do get the whole barrel kit with it which is pretty nice, plus it's got that crazy Empire warranty, you break they'll cover it...mostly.

and there is the crux of the situation its all about personal preference. BOS has been working on cockers forever so you get used to what its "suppose" to feel like. Us less experienced users dont have the preconception of whats right so its a little easier for us to accept it at face value.

The trigger you will just have to try for yourself and see what you think no one is going to be able to give you an accurate review.

If the one I worked on was mine though I would have had to polish the mating surfaces to get rid of the gritty feel.
