    Cocker Dating

    hey yall - a few years ago I started collecting serial numbers for autocockers and matching what the owner said and cross referenced this against the features that were added over the years. I hosted this info on scroadkill.com and teamsection8.com .. and now it is here.

    If a mod would please consider sticking this for future reference... - thanks.
    -----------------------------------------------

    Model -- Serial Numbers --- Year Made

    Sniper I --- 1 - 500 --- 1987 --- Bud was making Sniper 1 - machined bodies - in his garage

    Sniper I --- 500 - 2107 --- 1988 - 1989 (<Summer) --- Paintslinger16 : "WGP made the switch from a machined to an extruded receiver. Snipers with serial numbers over 2000 have the extruded bodies, as do all the new Sniper II's."
    (774 Thumper says)

    Sniper 1 1/2 --- 2108 - 2524 --- Early 1989 --- If it's over #2100 then they will have the sniper II body. They used up the Sniper 1 stock (so the #2100 - 2500 is more or less a sniper 1 1/2, after that they were true sniper II's. Joelrf600r: "a 1.5 is the nickname for the transition guns that didn't have all the sniper2 features, but had the extruded sniper2 body. They essentially have the extruded body, but still have the sniper1 style bolt/block combo. some of them have the sniper1 pump, others have the sniper2 pump. i don't know what the number range is for them." 2524 looks like a 1.5

    Sniper II --- 2525 - 2891 --- 1989(>Summer) --- In the article if refers to the switch in the summer of '89.
    "WGP made the switch from a machined to an extruded receiver. Snipers with serial numbers over 2000 have the extruded bodies, as do all the new Sniper II's." Also states that breech chamber size was reduced after serial #400 to prevent double feeds. The pictures in the article show serial number 2555. APG press release Nov 1989 -- pg58/59 -- pg61 -- pg62 -- pg64 --- I know 2530 is a sniper II -- PAINTCHECK Mar 1990 press release -- pg23 I know 2841 is a sniper II (Firepro84's)


    Sniper II --- 3757 ----3810 --- 1990 --- check out Firepro84's 3757 sniper II - 1990 is best guess. --- PAINTCHECK Mar 1990 press release ---- pg22 -- pg23 --- 3810 belongs to noclue119 ---

    Sniper II --- 6138 --- 1991 --- (JAGCPT says '91) --- APG August 1991 ad --- Dec 1991 Paintcheck -- pg25/26 -- pg29

    --- 17,000's - 28,000's --- 1995 --- 17000 low : Wolf13 says --- I think & hear 17206 is a late 94, early 95 (air-powered debate) --- (20834 THUMPER says 95)

    --- 29,745 --- 1996 --- 29745 (jasons) - Thumper says 96 - backblock

    --- 35,668 - 39,485 --- 1997 --- 35,668 is a 97 - full square body, slanted back block --- 39485 is a 97 - I know -- full square body.

    ---40,033 to 60,141 --- 1998 --- 40033 is a 98 --- 40177 is a 98 --- 44235 is a 98 --- 60141 is a 98 -- timing rod not threaded

    --- 60,764 to 72,450 --- 1999 --- 60764 is a 99 -- slanted gills, threaded rod --- 72450 is a 99 - definitely not 2K (from Vortex body)

    ---73,607 - 88,888 --- 2K0 --- I know 73,607 is a 2K0 -- and Kmac says so too.. --I know 74,139 is a 2K0 -- I know 88,888 is a 2K0

    Cockertech.com says 98,477 is a 2K1 --- 99,279 is a 2K1 (tallen702) --- I think 107,438 is a 2K1

    ---109,637 -143,450 --- 2K2 --- 109637 is a 2k2 (vert feed) --- I hear 123,106, is a 2k2 (draken @ warpig)

    Autococker Dating webpage saved from Thumpers original website:
    https://pastehtml.com/view/c9halptdq.html

    I'll poke Thumper and see if he still has the source table. I know he was keeping up with new info while he was still playing (circa 2014) both my link above and OpusX's post I know are out of date from what John had in his records. I'll twist his arm up behind his back and get the info maybe we can make a more up to date table that can be hosted.

      Got an on-topic question for this. Found an old Sniper, serial number 2577, which is right near the cut off from the "Sniper 1.5" to the "Sniper 2" category. But it sure seems to look like a 1.5 to me.
      Angle'd bottom grip frame with no screw holes. UMB mounted wire stock. Came with both the Sniper 1 and Sniper 2 square style back blocks.

      So, is it a Sniper 1.5, early Sniper 2, or just a mishmash of stuff?

        Fubarius, you Sniper does give the appearance of a Sniper 1.5 so maybe the table needs some adjusting. The table Thumper put to gather was based on input and recollections of the paintball community at the time so none of the ranges are written in stone. WGP did not make or distribute in a firm FIFO (First In First Out) manner so there are especially in the transition between Sniper I and Sniper II a curious mix of configurations. The actual designation of Sniper 1.5 is not a Bud Orr thing but a way for us to signify that fluid change period.
