This tiny cocker is one of Brahim Estephan’s OTP/B & M internal cocking micro cockers.
These predated Fox Hunters’ (of Castro Valley) Half Blocks which were around in mid ’92 (featured in Paintball magazine in November ’92).
Hard to believe it could possibly be that early but I have heard that from Greg Muller (Ironmen/NPS/Valken) and Joel Kaufman (Tour de Force/Constant Pursuit).
Here is a cycling video:
The bolt is attached to the hammer through the lug which means there is no “quick stripping.” Hammer removal is only possibly by removing the frame.
There is a milled in sight rail on top and the front of the body is chopped off.
Because of the cut front of the body a normal trigger frame will not fit on this gun.
This went from Brahim to Paul to Me. I am not sure how many of these were made by OTP besides the two Paul received from Brahim which were each different styles.
When I received this gun I replaced a stock beat sledge with the gold rock reg (anodized aluminum) and added the Palmers Female Stabilizer. I also put a J and J barrel on. The barrel has horizontal flutting and wild porting.
Shot great when I tested it in Guerneville but didn’t have much luck with it at SC Village the other weekend, not to mention I got shot out right in the side of the body where the cocking rod slips into the bolt!
