It’s hard to believe that Punisher Customs’ work was mostly produced over ten years ago, from 1999 to 2005. Punisher’s work ranged from stock class PGPs to electronic VM-68s and every modification to CCI Phantoms imaginable. Punisher eventually succumbed to the antagonizing stress of too many projects with too many different customers and working on too many finicky paintguns.
I was legitimately impressed by some of Punisher’s work, including many of the phantom related items, but other items were not really my style.
Which leads into this custom semi automatic PGP, which Punisher referred to as a Nano Cocker. This paintgun fits in-between impressive work and items that I couldn’t really see myself owning. This Nano Cocker isn’t something I would use regularly, it’s got a bit too much flair and I feel like the attachment and design of several pieces including the trigger, hardline, raw aluminum of the frame, gloss of the wood grips, and paint job on the body wouldn’t hold up to my regular use. Also, I can see myself tripping immediately and bending / breaking the beavertail.
And I’m also sure the internal components are a pain to maintain. There are also a couple minor issues that prevent this Nano Cocker from actually being ready to rock in its current state.
•The WGP inline setup as a bottomline reg is missing a depressing pin to open a pin valve on a tank.
•The bolt pin is difficult to move in and out of the bolt.
Both minor issues that can easily be overcome. And I realized this when I bought this used off mcb a few months back.
I’m hoping to try and shoot this Nano Cocker later this month after I rebuild the three way but we’ll see how that goes…
