Akademiks (an intentional misspelling of "academics") is an American brand of urban clothing popular with devotees of hip hop music. The label was founded in partnership by two brothers, Donwan and Emmett Harrell.
In 2004, the label achieved a degree of notoriety when its advertisements on New York MTA buses, which included the tagline "Read Books, Get Brain", were banned. Although MTA officials had not originally realised that there was any double meaning in this phrase, it was later pointed out that "get brain" was in fact a slang term for "receive oral sex" along the lines of "get head".
Akademiks has gained popularity in the fashion industry due to the number of celebrities who wear the brand's PRPS jeans.

Akademiks has gained popularity in the fashion industry due to the number of celebrities who wear the brand's PRPS jeans. Autocockers are considered by many to be the most reliable paintball marker in the game today. Although MTA officials had not originally realised that there was any double meaning in this phrase, it was later pointed out that "get brain" was in fact a slang term for "receive oral sex" along the lines of "get head". The Autococker is a closed bolt, two part system that can be broken down for easier understanding. In 2004, the label achieved a degree of notoriety when its advertisements on New York MTA buses, which included the tagline "Read Books, Get Brain", were banned. The pneumatics automatically re-cocked the marker after a shot was fired, hence the name Autococker. The label was founded in partnership by two brothers, Donwan and Emmett Harrell. To match that, in 1990 Orr added a pneumatic system onto the pump markers he had developed to make a semiautomatic.
Akademiks (an intentional misspelling of "academics") is an American brand of urban clothing popular with devotees of hip hop music. Semiautomatic markers were being created by the early 90s. In 1987, Orr founded WGP (Worr Game Products) to sell the products he was developing, and by 1988 he had taken on the business full-time. The Autococker began life in late 1986 when Bud Orr created the original Sniper pump marker(operated in a way similar to pump-action rifles, it has to be pumped after each shot to load the next)By carving the works of a standard Sheridan PGP into an aluminum block that would accept a longer barrel. Proponents will also add that its design makes the marker inherently more accurate than other markers due to the fact that the bolt's mass does not move forward when the trigger is pulled, as it does in open-bolt designs, and the ball is already "chambered" in the breech at the moment the firing cycle is initiated.
The Autococker is a closed-bolt semiautomatic paintball marker that is particularly notable for its popularity and customizability. The ram is the actual pumping component. The second component is the 4-way valve (this is typically mistaken for a 3-way valve because it has 3 visible ports, however this is technically incorrect), and that directs the pressure between the front and back of the final component, the ram. First is the LPR (Low Pressure Regulator) which functions to bring down the pressure for the pneumatic system to use (the pneumatics typically operate at < 100 PSI, versus a typically operation pressure of 400 PSI for the rest of the marker).
The pneumatic system basically performs the same function, by strapping three components onto the front of the marker. When the pump was brought forward, the chamber closed and the paintball was fully loaded, thus returning the marker to its original state, ready for firing again. This opened the chamber and allowed a new paintball to enter, and it also brought the hammer back. The pump handle was brought back pushing back the back block which was attached to the bolt and the hammer.
In the original pump marker, this was all done in one action via the pump. First, the hammer needs to be brought back again recompressing the spring, and second, another paintball needs to be loaded. Re-Cocking System - Having sent the paintball on its merry way, the problem that now exists is twofold. At this point, the valve releases a burst of gas which goes upward into the bolt which directs it behind the paintball, propelling it out the barrel.
When the trigger is pulled, the sear drops releasing the hammer which is driven forward by a spring into the valve. At rest, the bolt is sitting forward, closing the chamber, thus the marker is a closed bolt system. Firing System - The actual release of the gas is fairly simple to understand, especially with an understanding of other markers.
