Alright well I've been offered a trade for my Promaster. The guy is offering a "custom" cocker. Now I'm totally a noob when it comes to looking at autocockers so I thought you guys might be able to help me out here. He says he's not sure about ups because it's so "custom". If you guys could let me know any info you can pick out from the pics. Also is it a good deal trading the Promaster for it or should I ask him to add or just not do it at all? Any help is appreciated.

Here are some pics:

If it were me i would just keep the promaster. its a very good fast, consistent gun and by the looks of the cocker in the picture its dirty and it looks like he hasnt taken very good care of it. promaster:thumbup:

Yeah that's what I'm leaning towards. Just thought I'd get some more opinions.

keep the promaster. there is really nothing special about that cocker, besides the body. the pneumatics and bolt look like stock 04 pneu's and i dont even know where the hpr is from.

your promaster is quite superior to that marker, imo.

reg looks like a torp clone...

i'd stick with the promaster, and besides, that gun looks like it hasnt been touched in years!

Keep the promaster.

if u want a cocker to mess around with, i just bought this one, but want to get rid of it, i already got another cocker. I've lubed up the internals, and timed it a bit, tho it needs some more timing but its already shooting real nice.

but nothing like the promaster, the fact that the pro comes with the electric trigger should've been the deciding factor. that cocker doesnt have the SF frame.

unless he's willing to throw in some really decent gear or $$.....pass on it.

Assuming he is including everything, new feedneck and ASA.
The up's I'm seeing are a derlin bolt, new feedneck, torp copy, and gauge.
You're looking at a cocker at ~$100-150, leaning more towards the 100 due to lack of care.
Promasters now go for 139 new, so used it's about the same price.

Question is, do you want to downgrade to a mech? If so, it's an even trade.

Ok well I didn't do it but I've now been offered something else for the Promaster. I've been offered a 2k2 timmy. I'm really looking to get a Timmy and feel like this would be a decent start. Here is a pic of it. What do you all think about this trade?

Piece of **** regulator, "meh" body, ASA's "eh", dually's are cool but not needed nowadays, WAS is good. What ram and bolt? Those're the only two things I really can't tell from the pic.

He doesn't say anything about the ram so I'm assuming it's stock? And his description of the bolt is "aftermarket delrin bolt." This isn't a huge deal as I'd probably replace bolt and get a better reg. Other than that would you say it's a decent trade to get into a timmy?

It looks like it's taken some abuse and, is that tape on the body?

Yeah I guess. Where do you see tape?

Well if there aren't any other suggestions not to do it I think I'm going to go through with it.

Edit: Actually I'm not sure, now I'm having second thoughts. I might just upgrade the Promaster.

It looks like those wires on the grip are taped over and, are they exposed?

I think I'm just going to stick with the Promaster. Paintball is taking second priority at the moment because of an investment in a pickup truck so I'll just use that the way it is.
