IIRC, the MiniCocker was supposed to have some extras, like the cut backblock and gilled shroud and the short, dark green anno barrel, in order to help differentiate it from the it's full size brother.

The Minicocker shroud was shorter as well, because the gun was shorter, so it made sense to differentiate the shroud further with the decorative milling.

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “Is this not too generous to these Canadians?”

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”

Ok! That makes sense!

Do you know when they first release the minicocker? and when they started to use the sledge?

This is the earliest reference I can find on usenet:

Quote:
MINICOCKERS AVAILABLE
Alexander Franklin Rose
03/03/1993

This is Zander of the IRONMEN telling all of you out there who wanted
to know when and where to get a Mini-Cocker:
There are several of them at Delta Archery and Paintball in Concord
California.(510)685-7141. These are the base guns, you get a twenty
ounce bottle and the built in Bottom line with the gun. (If you add
that to an Auto-Cocker, you would come up with over $500.00.) The
Mini-Cocker is $550.00 and it has all the new improvements from Bud, in
a lightened,smaller, hand built and balanced gun.
As far as I know there are only three there now and there probably
won't be more for a while as they are such a low production item. Also
if you want the "rock" regulator, Air America expansion, or Swiftline
Modifications Bob Long at Delta Archery and Paintball can hook you in to
all those people and probably get you a discount if you are buying the
gun through him.
Znader of the IRONMEN
But I can't say how long cockers used those horrid stock regulators. Want to know how bad they were? I tried to find a picture on the internet, and I was unsucessful. It seems every single one was replaced!

EDIT:
Here is a gun with the stock early 90s WGP regulator. It was a horrid POS:

The early cockers did not not have a threaded timing rod. I don't think the minis had them either.
