Autocockers are in a class of their own.
"autococker" is used to describe a special type of paintball gun,
different from most other guns including the more common Spyders. The
difference is in how the gun is automatically cocked after each shot.
Whereas most other guns use some of the firing gasses to recock the
gun, an autococker uses inlet gas passed through special control valves
to drive a piston to recock the gun. The cocking and firing mechanism
of an autococker is described at ottersccustoms.com.
Autocockers are valued for their precision, craftmanship, and when the
timing is properly adjusted, their consistency. They are in a class
above other conventional markers, and generally cost above $400.
The autococker is a closed bolt gun that you can purchase ready made,
or you can customize to the point that every part is individually
selected. You can buy parts from various sources.
By building your own marker, your familiarity gives you the experience
and ability to make any repair as necessary that comes up.
