The small hole in the back behind the feedneck is for adjusting the hammer lug. You have to pull the bolt back slightly (if there is a corresponding hole in the bolt) or remove the bolt and stick an allen key down to adjust it

The first constant air guns had bottles mounted under the stock (California-style hand valve constant air). Then back bottle guns became popular (Tippmann SMGs). Then bottom line was the way to go, and at some point stocks went out of fashion. For a brief period, vertical bottle was a popular choice (Minicocker, Minimag, Mini-lite were all vertical). I have no idea where Hawaiian-style fits in the timeline, but some people mount the ASA facing forward.Then for awhile any decent gun had a drop forward mount. Now, with hose-less designs, we're back to bottom line, only you need a fancy rail and on/off ASA or your gun is crap.

They're all fads. Do what feels best; not the same set-up works for every person or gun. For what it's worth, the drop fits with what was popular when this gun was king.

And don't confuse "old" or "vintage" with "obsolete." The only obsolete paintball gear that I can think of are Uvex goggles, half masks, and barrel plugs.

^ Thanks Axel. And everyone else. I think I finally figured out what kind of cocker it is...

Googling it (took forever through pictures) It seems to be an IAO LE Black Magic??

Just got a reply back from a guy here on the thread. He had one, and sold it. He said that they were only sold at one tournament out in PA. So they are very limited quantity, and they were sold as bodies only. Crazy thing about that, is that I bought mine while I was on in British Columbia, Canada!! opposite side of North American. INSANE!!!

The only thing Im not feeling is the ANS frame. Ive never liked the look of the wavy guard.
Other than that. It looks GOOOOOD and I know a thing or two about race frames...

Regular cocker oring kit will work just fine.
If it was shooting fine before you put her in storage, then it should be just fine after you take her out and charge the battery. You MAY need a new battery though as they have been around for a long time and they are getting old.
