Short Stroke Autococker c.late 1990s

This custom cut Short Stoke Autococker came from a seller on Ebay several years back. I was intrigued by the unique cuts and the mystery that the painted “Short Stroke” text on the side might hold.

Unfortunately the finish is an awful rattle can paintjob but the cuts are definitely interesting.

The cut on the top of the back block is unusual. Front block screw did not come with this marker when I bought it. I don’t remember if the bolt and pin did either. I say rattle can (spray paint) in the video but it might be air brushed paint to get the smooth fade from metallic to deep blue.

In the video I list the mid 90s as the date when in reality the Benchmark frames with the embedded beavertails were likely late 90s and if we looked at the trigger plate it is likely post 98.

Most of the cuts are unrecognizable but the cut throughs on the back of the top tube are similar to some cuts on Vu Autocockers and Dirk Gadberry Autocockers.

If you recognize this Autococker and have any history please let me know! and the awesome rattle can paint job).
