Nice, but it needs a dust barrel. Or just add some color.

I really like the simplicity of the design.

Finally, a simple, yet sexy Shocker. So sick of the new "OMG I HAVE TO BE FUGLY TO GET BOUGHT" shockers.

This may be a stupid question, but how does the gun work? I understand how a blowback works, but I don't get the single tube design.

Sorry if this has been asked a lot.

Not a stupid question at all.

Teacher voice: This information is for the SFT only. I know nothing about the NXT generation of shockers....sorry!

A shocker is a spool valve operation. The bolt moves back and forth acting as both bolt AND valve. When the bolt moves forward into the "open" position, the air passages which are cut inside the body of the gun are opened and air moves the ball out of the gun. When the bolt "closes" the air passages are closed and it waits for the next trigger pull.

There is only one moving part in a Shocker, which is the bolt. It's a lot less complicated than stacked tube guns because they have the bolt, the striker and valve that you have to slam the striker into.

There are generally two boards involved with an SFT shocker - the upper board which controls the eyes, the power and the solenoid, and the lower board which controls the firing modes, the dwell, the debounce and so forth.

Advantages to "spool valve operations" are a majorly decreased recoil, a very quiet gun, and very low pressure operations. In theory, it's supposed to allow for greater air efficiency, but as has been complained about in the past, the stock parts SP uses don't allow for the possible efficiency it could get. By the way, the DM series, Quest, and I believe Mags are all the same operation as this.

There are several different bolts available for the Shocker, but this gif is of the stock bolt. Basically, the difference is only in the design of the bolt, not necessarily the gun.

You can see that air from the solenoid moves the bolt forward which then opens the air chambers to shoot the ball. Once the air is gone from the solenoid chamber, the bolt moves back and fills back up with air from the noid again, which upon trigger pull moves the bolt forward again. Pretty simple, yet a bit more complicated to make, I believe.

Thank for that, Vik. I've always wanted to know. It makes sense now.

This site has a lot of info as well as animated diagrams of various markers.

i agree with the simplicity thing
