Nummech Shockers are extremely limited designs that were produced between 2015-2017. This gallery page shows all the body milling designs that have been made to date. A separate page is available with information on the marker design changes.

Tube Shocker:
The classic "ultralight" milled design, but modified for the unique internals and design changes on Nummech Shockers. Nummch uses the term Tube marker to describe the overall shape. The Tube design is often used as a starting point when modeling CAD features that stick outward from the basic structure. These marker bodies are very lightweight, but not weakened to the point where functionality becomes questionable (as with the "weakened tube body" below).

Tiger Shocker:
This marker body was created using similar external shapes as the base model Shocker SFT. Curved stripes were added onto the basic shape, creating a simple and repeatative design.
To date only one Tiger Shocker was produced. I don't have pictures of the assembled marker. The Tiger Shocker prototype actually has different milling between the left and right side; each side of the marker was used to test subtle differences in the stripe pattern.

Quasar Shocker:
This was a test design for a "backbone" pattern. There was only one Quasar Shocker produced; I don't have picture of the assembled marker.

Fire Shocker II:
The FireShocker was Nummech's original flame-theme marker body design, which has been used on a few other marker bodies using the same flame patterns. The FireShocker takes special advantage of Nummech's redesigned body blanks in the added windows placed around the bolt sleeve, which couldn't be created with a Smart Parts marker body (unless the solenoid inserts were modified).
To date there is only one FireShocker, although more may be created in the future.

Spinal Shocker:
A ridiculously-complicated marker design that was created using spinal bones projected outward from the Shocker body blank. This was Nummech's most intricate Shocker ever produced, and its complexity will likely never be topped. Only three Spinal Shockers have been created, although one was made from a defective body blank thus is non-functional. Only two are actually functional, and were anodized dust black and dust white.

Weakened Tube Shocker:
This design is a modification of the ultralightweight Tube body, but has additional windows cut around the outside. This design was prototyped to test out the most lightweight Shocker body possible (163 grams), however the extreme lightweight design could only be fabricated at the detrement of reducing the body's strength and reliability. The body was very fragile and it was decided to not make any new bodies in this style. The marker body was functional, but has been weakened to the point where it could be damaged by regular use on a rough playing field.
Only one weakened body was produced and sold with the understanding that it may not be useable. The new owner planned to assemble a marker from it, but I don't know what happened to it after the new owner took possession.
