The first batch of the Impulses came in two versions, vision and non vision. Believe it or not this was an extra $200 upgrade. Later this same idea was applied to the SFT Shocker when they came out.

The gun is very square in its milling. Top heavy. But during its time it was one of the top guns made. To this day if you can pick one up for cheap and want to go old school the gun will not fail you.

The LPR is easy to reach on the front under the barrel. The dwell is located on the side of the gun with an allen wrench, which is handy. It is easy to get too and nothing can bump the buttons to change, they are placed deep in the whole. As for models of boards produced, there was the vision and a WAS board, and a speedy 2 board with the cheater ramping code.

Overall a well made gun in its time and place in history. To tell the year of production, if it has Impulse engraved largely on the body-it is older. If it has an Impulse badge, it was one of the later models.

Smart Parts Impulse/Impulse Vision Still a fun gun to play with, but heavy and more difficult to take care of than modern guns.
