Getting a perfect shot in your autococker requires adjusting the hammer force. Some autocockers require the hammer force to be regulated, while others don’t. This article will walk you through the process of sweetspotting an autococker. In addition, you’ll learn about the effects of high pressure and Short-Stroking. You’ll also learn how to keep your autococker uncocked.
Short-Stroking on autocockers
In the early 1990s, Belsales, an Italian company, was one of the first companies to produce WGP-certified autocockers. These cockers cost almost $2000 for the high-end models. The Automag was the only other major brand competing with Belsales for popularity until electronic markers became popular. The Automag has since been the standard in the field of archery since that time. But how do you tell which autococker is best for your game?
The most common Autocockers, the mechanical kind, use a trigger to fire the marker and re-cock it. The firing and re-cocking functions follow each other closely. If you only partially pull the trigger, short-stroking can occur. The result is a chopped ball, which reduces accuracy and velocity. In contrast, if you pull the trigger fully, your marker will fire a higher velocity and be more accurate.
Autocockers with a closed-bolt design are considered to be more accurate than open-bolt markers. This is because the mass of the bolt isn’t allowed to move forward during the firing cycle, preventing the ball from launching. Therefore, the lack of oscillating mass increases accuracy. It’s not surprising that many inexperienced Autocockers complain of only a few shots with a full tank.
Adjusting hammer force on autocockers
To adjust the hammer force on Autocockers, follow the steps below. First, remove the cocking rod, which screws into the back of the hammer in the lower half of the ‘gun body. On most Autocockers, this rod must be removed before adjusting the velocity. The length of the rod is also an important aspect of timing and ensuring that the paintball feeds properly.
When you first buy an Autococker, you may wonder what the difference is between a manual and a pneumatic version. In theory, the two work the same way, but the difference is that Autocockers have pneumatics that regulate the hammer force. By setting the hammer force on the manual, you can easily change the hammer force on both manual and autocockers.
After you have determined the correct hammer force, adjust the Shot time. The Shot time is the length of time that the sear solenoid actuates. A too-short Shot time will prevent the hammer from releasing. Setting it too long will waste energy and limit the number of shots delivered per battery charge. Most experienced users report a few shots from a full tank. When adjusting the Shot time, it is important to set the hammer release at the back of the ram so that the hammer is pushed in and released correctly.
When adjusting the hammer force of your autococker, you must ensure that you do not push it past the sear. The hammer lug is found in a hole on the top of the body, and you can access it using a hex wrench. You may need to move the hammer slightly so that it fits the lug. Once you have adjusted the hammer force, a further half-turn will be needed to secure the hammer.
Effects of high pressure on autococker
A common complaint from novice Autococker users is that they are only getting a few shots out of a full tank of gas. However, this problem is easily fixable by addressing the underlying cause, high pressure against the back of the valve. High pressure can cause the paintball valve to fail to open, reducing the velocity of the shot and lowering the gas efficiency of the marker. Here are some common causes of a poor performance.
First, check your Autococker for signs of paint smearing. Some Autocockers have paint that can get caked on the inside of the barrel. To prevent this from happening, clean the inside of the barrel and top chamber with tissue or toilet paper. You should also clean the front block setup with a q-tip, which many people tend to paint after use. If you find the q-tip gets dirty, you should clean the o-rings with paintball oil to ensure they remain in good condition.
The effects of high pressure on an Autococker are minimal, but can cause it to fail. A well-maintained Autococker can function for years, despite the high-pressure condition of its valve. Inexperienced owners often try to repair Autocockers themselves, resulting in a failure of the valve. However, Autocockers are incredibly reliable once they are properly set up. If you are looking for an Autococker for sale, make sure to use an experienced owner with ample experience in this field.
Besides the usual trigger mechanism, the high-pressure valve is another possible cause of the malfunction. When this happens, the autococker will not fire at all. This is because of the preexisting problems. You can’t use it if the Autococker is not working properly. If it isn’t working, you need to check whether the high-pressure valve is working properly. Otherwise, you can try to fix the problem by resetting the Autococker.
Keeping your autococker un-cocked
You can prevent this from happening by following a few simple tips. First, make sure that your autococker is un-cocked. If you have a small autococker, you can stow it away while not in use. You can also make a clone of it. You can find a mini autococker at a pawn shop for a low price.
An autococker is not compatible with all guns. You should not purchase an autococker unless it’s made by Worr Game Products. These guns operate on low pressure gases that move the piston, bolt assembly, and hammer assembly. Once the gun is un-cocked, you can shoot it. Otherwise, your autococker will need to be manually cocked each time.
