nerve a good choice?

alright guys i just sold my 05 speed and i have enough money for a new gun. i was thinking a nerve, 05 timmy, shocker, pm6, and fs8. ive really liked the nerve for some time but ive never actually seen one in person. often i hear people say its just like an impulse. i HATE impulses. i was jw, about how big is it compared to a shocker, pm5, or 05 speed. i also plan to buy a ton ton fram for it because i think it has a stock shocker trigger frame on it and i dont like those very much, small trigger guard. are nerves loud compared to other guns, and for me it is important just because i like super quiet guns. ive heard it has little to no kick so thats good. any advice or pics of a size comparison would be great. thanx alot

smaller than 05 speed for sure, I just shot one side by side with my nerve today.

And it uses the same frame as a shocker (as well as board and trigger).

Very good choice IMO.

The nerve has the feel of a shocker, the price of the ion, with none of their weaknesses (stock at least).

yeah, those pix have gotten the same reacion so many times now lol. yes the nerve is really a small gun. It is a good choice for a gun. They are quieter than ions are, and they kick less. I say buy one

I have just joing the Nerve Owners Group, and I am not dissapointed! One of my friends has a shocker, and another has an ego. I can keep up easily for much less $$$. The only noticable weight difference between the nerve and shocker is the barrel, since the nerve has a stainless-steel back. But then again, its really not bad. With the nerve, you can't go wrong with the price-to-performance ratio.

The the best bang for the buck, get the Nerve. $475 for a marker that was once $1200, that's an amazing deal. For something around the prices of the Pm6, and Fs8, get the Legend. It's made by InfinityPaintballProducts.com. I'm rather hopeful of this marker, and plan on preordering one soon. Anyway, the Nerve is an excellent choice.

the legend.... that gun is amazing!
they had 3 at the nppl event in tampa and were letting people shoot off a halo full of reballs. that thing is fast and light (when i shot it they told us that it was shooting at as high of velocity possible, so when someone comes along and rips out a mad rope of paint, everyone could hear it... this affected the kick). so the moral is if your gunna blow over a grand, thats a good choice. but to tell you the truth, i can rip almost as good on my nerve, for an affordable price tag

once you get the nerve set up right, kick is very minimal. I actually like the stainless back, it balances it out more IMO. Sound is very nice. Not really a clang or clack, its crisp. Like opening a can of soda.

Sid

the gun does not have the same frame, the trigger guard is a bit more expanded which u can actually fell the difference, its like 275 more, n im not sure bout the speed, never shot side by side.

but if u compare it to a shocker is just a lil bit heavier, its heigth is not even a inch larger, the width, shocker is widder

the gun is probly the best gun to maintence around

best gun around for the price get it now!!!!

The Smart Parts Nerve.

2.2 lbs (.4 lbs more than a shocker.. whooptiedoo...)

Same grip frame as shocker. (I have actually seen Dynasty Nerves... dynasty shocker grips put on nerves)

Vision eyes standard.

qlock standard.

incredibly easy to tune and maintain. Even easier than the shocker in my opinion...

Very few upgrades needed, the only real useful upgrades to get are the NDZ Volumizer LPR upgrade (only if you wanna run low pressure [I recommend it]) the NDZ back plate (same reason) the NDZ Nerve Bolt (same reason) and the Dynasty or Ton Tons board (not totally nessesary... The stock board rips already...)

The Nerve comes with a freak barrel and a stainless steel back... some people dont like the SS back because its heavy. In my opinion, it helps like a mofo, because if you have a dynasty board like me, the gun practically hits so hard and kicks so fast that it practically gets thrown out of your hands... the SS back keeps it down a bit and reduces the minimal, but obvious kick the nerve can have... especially when brand new...

make sure to match paint bore size to your freak insert(s) and compensate for tempurature (heat or cold) because it SERIOUSLY makes a HUGE difference with the nerve... ESPECIALLY if you have the NDZ bolt which gives the ball 10-15 more fps per shot.

Enjoy the Nerve. Its everything you ever wanted in a marker for 475 online and similar prices on auction and ad sites... check it out!
