Rocket Cock?

Is it really worth the money. I want some cheap upgrades for my 98c, and was just wondering about it.

helps keep the gook out of your cocking slot and reduces the spring ping that you hear that's about all i know about it
Theguy

Well it makes the 98 kind like the A-5 in the sense that it will now be totally internal. No external moving parts.

No slots to get dirt or debris into.

It makes it sound a little quieter to you and seals off everthing, while also making your gun cock a differant cool way too. If found one cheap Id get it, but wouldnt pay MSRP.

So are you guys saying it's worth it?

Have you ever had dirt riding on your rear bolt? Definately worth it.
Smitty

I do get shot there sometimes. I'll see if I can get a cheap one.
Glassjaw

I'd say go for it.

How exactly do you cock the gun when it has one of these on there?

I assume that connected to the "lever" you pull back on it, there is a thing where you put your bolt piece(name escapes me at the moment) to cock the gun.
sinisterNorth

It's worth it. Because it prevents dirt, paint, etc from getting niside the gun, it saves you time you'd normally have to tak to clean your gun out.

I'm getting one asap..
cdacda13

I have one lying around. Dont need it cause my guns top cocking now.

Are there any problems with the regular Flatline shroud? And, how thick is the far part of it? Could you mill it to make it a little smaller?
rossy11223

I don't know about the regular shroud, it might not be a problem. Yes, you could probably mill it down.

Its plastic so you could always cut it.
rossy11223

Right, it would be very easy to cut.

Then I'd have to sand it down or something. I'm probably going to leave it, but can I get a picture of how thick it is?
TriggerHappy1

Th shroud is no more than an 1/8in there. Iv seen then just cut with scissors. If its flush with the RC, it will look good and no sanding is nescessary. Pics just for you-

Yes, but I hear that the Lapco Bigshot is loud, and if I get that maybe it will cancel eachother out.
You Wont See Me

Lapco bigshot isnt any louder than the stock barrel.

Hmm. Another myth at Tippmann.

YWSM would know. He has one on his A5. Also, if you do the sear spring mod that might help a bit.

Honestly, I could care less how quiet my gun is as long as it puts paint on people.

Exactly. I actually like it loud.
rossy11223

They are going to hear you anyways. Why not scare them a little and make it as loud as you can? Very Happy

Duh.

My rocket cockII is great. The flatline shroud has to be cut just a tad so it can fit. I just used a knife to chip away part of the shroud. It helped me because i kept getting my rear bolt getting stuck on my clothes because I would fire my gun against my chest. Now with the rocket cock II, that is no problem.
