Cockers are notoriously backheavy, thanks to the feedneck being so far back. If you moved the trigger further, it would help alleviate that.

respectfully disagree, but perhaps personal preference. i've always found them comfortable in balance.

Interesting.

I've never noticed them being further back than anything else on the market, I'll have to take a look.

I've always found Cockers tend towards front heavy due to the pneumatics, and Mags back heavy, due to the honkin' SS valve on the back.

“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.”

Fan of EMR
CCM Fan
So I got to EMR for Spring Castle Conquest and Simon was there like he usually is. I was hoping he would have Hornets for sale because I want to support the company, and who else is that meticulous with their product? Saturday night after annoying him enough he gave in and sold me a display Hornet, and was even kind enough to switch it to an 86 frame. Boys... I LIKE IT JUST AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER THAN MY CCM! It just points very well, and all of the new products like the new On/Off and frame, (the whole thing is new less the stella). Very smooth pump stroke, it took about 5 pods and a hopper to get +/- 5 fps on the chrono. I wouldn't be surprised if that got even better, Simon left me feeling very good about my purchase even when I signed up for the waiting list.

In my opinion: Is it leaps and bounds the greatest pump ever? No, but you DO get what you pay for if you are a collector or just appreciate craftsmanship.

I'm really interested in picking one of these up but it only takes Resi style frames, kind of a drawback. Has anyone modified these to use the older cocker frames?

Where did you hear that they only take Ressie style frames?

Ressie frames are not backward compatible with older cockers.

Simon's frames are, and vice-versa.

You can drop in a hinge, or whatever, onto his stuff, though why you'd want to is a mystery, as his frames are insanely good (and fast. And beautiful).

In an email from the horses mouth

"It has the new, more reliable, boss mounting system so it would need to use our frame, or have to be modified if you want to use something else on it"
