Go for it. A stock 2k3 or 2k4 cocker will be sufficient for rec-ball play and such. Most people will jump and tell you 30 different things to uprgrade. Try playing with it first and see what you don't like about it, and then upgrade what you don't like.
Cockers are reliable guns as long as you don't touch them. As soon as they work well just leave them how they should be, and they will work for along time.
So a good setup for anyone that wants a cocker would be a 2k4 and nitro..then if you wanna go tourney get eblade kit??? Does eblade kit make a cocker one of the best tourney guns? OR does eblade make it just good enough to be tourney worthy?
Well, I am a tourney playa, and I pretty much know whats good for rec and tourney, I just need a new gun, all my l33t guns broke down, and I was lookin for sumtin new...thanks alot guys, I appreciate all the comments!
