Started using this back in 2006, was a great marker.

Numerous upgrades were available and there were tons of ways to customize it. The vision was actually decent when I had them, aside from dark colored paint which my field didn't have much of.

Smart Parts Impulse/Impulse Vision I had an RAT impulse, fully upped. At the time it was better then the Shocker. It worked great and decent on air, but still sucked it and had some drop off. but overall was great, and fun!

This was my first high end electro gun. I never had a single issue with it chopping, like some people did. It was very reliable and never really broke down.

Maintenance was very easy and there weren't very many essential upgrades needed for the gun to shoot well. There were plenty of options if one desired.

This was a great gun back in the day, still is today. Gun shot great out of the box other than the fact that it burned through a 45/4500 quickly. Upgraded to a 68/4500 and put about every part ndz made for it and never looked back. Gun still runs to this day even though it hasn't been used or lubed in years.

Well this was my 3rd gun, i bought it from a friend about 6 onths ago for $125, i thought i was getting a pretty good deal out of it, (came with an eggy 2)

However there really isnt very much good i can say about it.
it was very accurate ripping, but just shooting slowly accuracy wasnt impressive at all. it was fairly fast (maxed at around 13bps).

I had a lot of problems with reliability (it wouldnt shoot half the time) and
it being inefficient. it also chopped a ton, but it didnt have eyes which was probably most of the problem.


it maybe ok if you dump some money into a good board, lpr, and other ups, but stock, non-vision it disappointed me

Bought one cheap to use as a backup and just couldnt get past how big it is. Even after getting a few upgrades I just couldnt stand to have it in my home. Its big, inefficient, inconsistent, and overall a poor marker.
