Any chance of an Empire Autococker?
 
Since Empire came out with the Sniper, I've been wondering if theres any chance of coming out with an Empire Autococker. I mean why not? They already have a Sniper, it shouldn't be too difficult to make it into a cocker. They already have the main parts. Plus no ones making them anymore, and the only source for one is the used market....so I can see where it would sell well, even if its a limited run. What do you think?

Thats not really what I was getting at. Sure you can mod one, but there are no autocockers being sold anymore(unless you frankengun it). It wouldn't be too hard to change the sniper into a cocker and sell it for around the same price point. It would work, all you need to do is ditch the pump parts and spring feed(maybe even the barrel kit), and add the front block.
Most people don't like to tinker with parts, its easier for them to just buy it new. Especially when your talking a NIB gun that runs $400+ before you add the front block area in. A new cocker would sell. It's a classic, and theres a market for it.

a VERY small market probably smaller than pump. There's no money in it for KEE.

It's sad. :( I'd love just to get a simple semi-auto single trigger marker. Do you guys think any companies would make their markers with a single trigger if you went for a custom order?

Nope. Keep your eyes open and you can find some cockers NIB on sleezebay everyonce in a while.

Thing is, I'm horrible when it comes to dissasembling guns. The furthest I've done with my sniper is take out the bolt.....And I'll be honest, I have like zero knowledge about autocockers. Those things need a lot of maintinence,right?
