Predator Autococker on ebay fake?

PAINTBALL GUN- EVOLUTION SPEC ED PREDATOR AUTO COCKER - (eBay item 230169370522 end time Sep-11-07 17:13:36 PDT)

I dont remember these having p-blocks and I thought they had a curved "slide" milling on the rear upper body. So I'm calling it a fake, it looks like a green evolution that has Predators etched on it. Maybe you guys will shed more light on it.

I thought they had the Predators logo milled on them.

EDIT*Paint - Custom Cockers
Little article on Cockers and Predator is mentioned with a pic. Looks like the one in the auction.
Guess I was wrong

More Edit*
According to a thread by Wolf
"In 1995 the UK Predators (top UK team and a solid world contender) agreed to switch to shooting autocockers and the Belsales Predator series was born. Early Predator cockers were built off left feed Evolution bodies anodized in the Predators trademark green and only later took on the signature milling and engraving of the line. Unlike the Evolution series, Belsales US distributor for the Predator series was WGP themselves."

it's an early predator cocker. it's an evolution with team predators' name on it.

the sweet predator cocker isn't pblocked, has a sort of half moon milling on the tail end of the body which carries over to the back block, the bolt pin is atop the back block, and yes, the predator face is laser etched onto the gun.

this cocker, however, is still a nice find. overpriced though.

yes and no. it IS an actual UK Predators team gun built for them by belsales, it is not however the traditional predator cocker. this one predates the predator line. They were left feed because the predators shot mags until they got a belsales sposnership and were used too the hopper on the left.

This is what people normally think of for a body style for a Predator cocker:
