FBM Gothic Cocker Body with Tubes

This video offers a closer look at a FBM Gothic Autococker body. The Gothic variations of cockers use extremely complex and were machined by Chris Ogaz at TnC Products and Ogaz Enterprises.

This particular FBM Gothic Autococker uses inserts similar to Fishbone, Ying Yang and Cobra series of bodies that Ogaz machined for Spanky Paintball. This body has FBM machined onto the side (where a WGP body would have the serial stamped) and has tons of small holes drilled and threaded for mounting spikes. As pictured in the video it is is raw and exactly as it came from Chris Ogaz.

When you look at the body, especially around the feedneck and detent area (and mirrored side), it is apparent that the cuts where done by Ogaz Enterprises and TnC Products. Many of Ogaz’s Cocker bodies share the same sight rail / feedneck cuts.

Ogaz’ Gothic bodies were machined from billet Aluminum and not a stock WGP body. Some of the Fishbone and Ying Yang bodies produced early on were machined from stock WGP bodies.

The following variations of this body style where made:

  • Non Tubed Spiked
  • Tubed Spiked
  • Non Tube and Non Spiked
  • Half Block (I think factory, maybe post Ogaz?)

I believe the non tubed styles were machined by Ogaz and FBM in house and the tubed styles were only machined by Ogaz?

It is unknown how many of the various styles were produced but I would imagine not many when you combine the complexity of the cuts and the fact that it used the tubed internal system.

Here is a tiny Minicocker I found that has some similarities to an early gen SFL autocockers. Really bad shape but neat round cuts.
