All the maintenance a cocker needs is a few drops of oil in the ASA after a days play, and wiping down the body and the bolt. Cockers rarely come out of timing. I know several people that have had their cockers since 2000 and haven't timed it since they first got it.
My second gun was a cocker, and even then I was a newb. It was good until I let someone touch it, that shouldn't have touched it.
As for e-hoppers, DEFINATLY get an old-school Revolution. They will last forever. I swear, cockroaches and these will be the only thing to survive a nuclear blast. I would give a link to some but since they are on another forum I can't. I will PM you with links to the forsale threads. I have an oldschool revvy for my cocker and I love it, it's a piece of artwork.
