If you want an Old School mech marker and want to be 100% confident in quality....dont forget about the Arrow Precision - Sovereign III.

Its still made by the same company that made the evolution autocockers...100% built and assembled in house in the UK! They still sell them new...now with clamping feednecks! and its close to $200 cheaper than the new empire cocker.

But the new cocker does seem great....it will all come down to quality of build and timing from the factory.

Are you sure about that? I'm pretty sure Belsales and Powerball are two different companies. The clamping feedneck is news to me too. A guy on the forums bought one about a month ago and it didn't have a clamping feedneck. I emailed them about getting one around the same time and none of the pictures they sent me displaying the different colors had clamping feednecks. The guy who bought one also paid way more than $200 by the time it got to him as well.

I think the Resurrection will blow the lid off a SovIII. Better designed components, less reciprocating mass, autococker threaded (and includes the best barrel kit ever made), and the list goes on. The SovIII def has a 'coolness' appeal to it though, and is a quality product.

I have been holding off on all of APs products because of their barrel threading. I have standardized with Cocker threads. Problem is that it will take a redesign of the body to accommodate Cocker threading.

Will you can buy NIB Spyder UL backs from Compulsive for like $20-$15 right now, so that can be an advantage if you don't already have an extensive barrel collection.

That's very true. A person just getting into things could have a great setup for cheap.

I think it is Spyder:

Welcome to sterling Pump Guns - Technical Specifications

Welcome to sterling Pump Guns

They are, however, making some old run bodies with Sterling threading, at least for the Sterling itself.

What does this do that's new and exciting?

More milling? Blah. Give me a genesis front block, or something NEW.

Do most players at your field have experience with autocockers? I rarely find a player that's an autococker fan and I see even fewer people actually using them. Most people I meet have no idea what an autococker is past the fact that it used to be a nice paintball gun. So the Resurrection is new to the majority of paintball players. And as I mentioned before, a lot of the best aspects of this gun can be found on different autocockers but never before in a single package.
