Shocker CVO - Dust Pewter with Gloss Black Accents
The original Shocker ushered in the age of electronic paintball and now the legend has come full circle. Through progressive advancements, each Shocker generation has become smaller, lighter and faster than the one before. The circle is now complete... The Shocker has become mechanical.
The new Shocker CVO is joining the Shocker XLS in the Shocker Paintball lineup. The Shocker CVO takes the smoothness and efficiency found in the ultra-light and compact Shocker XLS and strips away the electronics, replacing them with a purely mechanical control system featuring a cam-actuated pilot valve. The result is a cutting edge paintball marker with a trigger pull so short and light that it matches its electronic cousins while diving into the resurgent world of mechanical tournament paintball.
Spool Valve Operation
The latest bolt system from SP the Shocker® XLS bolt system elevates the Shocker®’s performance to a whole new level. By taking advantage of the longer marker platform, the Shocker® XLS bolt system has a larger internal volume resulting in even lower operating pressure of 145psi. The lower operating pressure allows the Shocker® CVO to provide a smoother, quieter shot than previous generations of Shocker® while maintaining the same level of efficiency. When paired with refinements to the regulator design – the XLS bolt system has a faster recharge and greater consistency at full rate of fire than ever before.
14-Inch All-American Freak XL
Drawing from the latest barrel technology the new Shocker CVO ships with the equally new – Freak® XL The Freak® XL features a longer control bore that allows the air to remain behind the ball longer, allowing it to do more work accelerating the ball – with less air. This means that the new Shocker® CVO can operate at lower operating pressure, and increase efficiency over previous Shocker® models.
Because the new Shocker® CVO uses the Freak XL barrel system, players now have the added advantage of quick turn autococker threads on the factory Freak XL barrel back – so removing your barrel takes 1/2 as many turns while remaining compatible with any autococker threaded marker.
Water resistant coating is applied to all of the electronic boards in the Shocker® and helps keep the marker laying paint, even in the rain. The new XLS screen cover increases water and debris resistance with a weather tough power button. The Shocker® XLS weather tough screen cover raises the over all water and debris resistance of the Shocker® electronics package. Because the new button also has greater travel, the switch is also easier to operate with larger fingers or even gloves.
Advanced Bolt Design and Lever Detents
Angled lever style ball detents are extremely soft on paint while maintaining enough tension for even the most forceful loaders. The ball detents are also incredibly durable, lasting millions of cycles with a simple cleaning.
The thoughtful design of the bolt tip prevents clipping when used with high force loaders. The bolts rounded edge, and forward o-ring guide the paintball stack carefully out of the way when chambering and firing the paintball in the breach. The open face bolt design physically contacts the ball at its strongest point – its edge – thus distributing any physical force across the greatest surface area of the ball. Designed to maximize the effectiveness of the Shocker® lever style ball detents – the bolt face works with the detents to minimize rollback (paint moving in the breach due to small or oddly shaped paintballs).
In the development of the Shocker® XLS and CVO platform SP challenged its engineers to squeeze even more performance from the Shocker® regulator design. The result is the new XLS regulator piston – machined from aircraft grade aluminum and Type III hard anodized. The XLS regulator piston uses the same seals that have been proven consistent and durable – but with lighter weight and higher flow. The XLS piston allows a faster recharge rate, and greater consistency while at a maximum rate of fire than the previous generation Shockers®.
The XLS regulator piston also has a retention ring – which allows the secondary spring to remain attached to the piston, offering easier disassembly for regulator service.
Professional tournament proven over generations of Shockers, the Q-Lock clamps loaders securely in place, yet opens easily with the flick of lever. The Shocker® CVO features upgraded thumbwheel feed tube adjustment making fitting any loader on the market easier than ever.
Shocker XLS Carry Case
With the creation of the Shocker® CVO we wanted to elevate all aspects of the experience of owning a Shocker® and that includes the case. The new Shocker® CVO case has been trimmed down and beefed up to be more compact and rugged than ever before. In addition to cutting down the overall thickness – we have utilized a new carbon pattern material to add water and dirt resistance to the outer skin of the case.
