Do cocker parts seem harder to find.
I have been trying to find cocker parts,but they seem scarce. Finally I ran back into ANS. I guess them and Palmers are really about the last. Sure I find a deal once in a while,but not like in the past. Anyone else having the same problems? I know they are loosing popularity, but is it really that bad? Should I start hording my parts and any others that I can get ahold of?

Just out of curiousity...How long has it been since K2 bought Bud out? :confused:

Maybe a matter of old stock not being replenished by the new owner/corporation?:confused:

I think a lot of places still have tons of Autococker parts sitting around, but they're just not advertising them on sites and such anymore since they aren't moving like they used to. My local shop doesn't even put them on the shelf in front anymore, you have to ask for them.

Everyone is getting out of the aftermarket parts business, considering WGP parts are mostly mechanical parts, the market for it is even more scarce.

Smartparts' Ion has probably replaced Autococker's popularity when it comes to aftermarket parts, even that is getting harder to make a living when Smartparts are coming out with custom body kits that sells for 1/3 of the price of the thier nearest competitors.

Belsales si still around as well, but yeah, it is harder to find specific partsthne i used to be, and most of what you do find are wgp, aim and sys x

Shocktech still makes cocker parts (and very good ones in my experience)

Kapp went out of business but many NIB Kapp parts are still floating around

I think they are still out there being made, but they are no longer at the forefront of retail sales in the paintball market.

I know of 2 stores that have alot of autococker stuff they'd love to get rid of
one is Boston Paintball and the other is our own PW Paintball.Between both of those stores you should have enough parts so build several cockers

Bottom line is yes they are becoming more and more hard to find.

Yes!! I went to three local stores trying to find a ball detent for a sniper Im working on... and no luck in any of them!

You can still get them... sort of. The market has fallen out (aftermarket parts that is) for these guns as electros are becoming cheaper, the trilogy cockers, etc...

Heck, by the time you figure out the cost of a few aftermarket parts, you could have a whole new gun.

And since it is quiet and guns are cheap, the makers are aftermarket parts have more or less stopped producing new parts.

There are still some hold outs, and they are just the top of the line parts... But not much around, I agree.
