Well, I doubt it. Luxe is this gens shocker. That's why DLX formerly had smartparts manufacture their parts, etc. So I wouldn't hold your breath..

They tried that as smartparts. The Impulse didn't do well if I recall.

Seeing as how they only made 325 of the '09 Impulses before the company shut down, you have no basis for that statement.

My '09 Impulse was able to get a case of paint off a 68/4500 fill. I absolutely love it.

The company went under... I think I have a basis.

Just because a company went under doesn't mean they make bad products by any means. I think we all can agree the have had GREAT guns and regulators and still have one of the best barrel system to date! They may have went under but they were back in no time.

All I'm saying is I would love to see gog/smart parts get back into the high level tournament guns and teams for that matter. Philly americans 2013? Would be sick! Anyway I feel smart part/ gog has done a lot for the development of the sport it would only be right to have them in the highest level and pro scene again!

You are an idiot. The company going under had nothing to do with the quality of the gun. The company was forced into bankruptcy because of the calling in of outstanding debt by the companies main creditor. This was because the bank panicked in the face of the global economic crisis. Just because you have an *** doesn't mean you need to talk out of it.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Finally someone that actually has some facts posts in a forum.

Seriously... the other guns are jokes!! I love how nobody posted in the other threads but everyone is posting in the shocker thread.

Edit: I didn't read the thread before I posted. We can all assume that Smart Parts went out of business... And that GoG is not the new smart parts but they hold Smart Parts intellectual property. And that we shouldn't expect markers in slick Smart Part's styles. Unless there's something I don't know, there probably is.

Well for starters they don't hold the intellectual property. KEE does.
Also I wouldn't consider the other GOG guns jokes. The Extcy is an updated ION with the blackheart board installed and break beam eyes out of the box. The ION leveled the playing field for the budget and start up player. the Envy and G-1 are excellent starter guns with room to grow with the players who get them, providing an upgrade path that puts them on level with the Extcy for very little money. By the quality of your post you can tell you don't know much.

Okay... Your rockin' Gog in your sig so I assume your associated with them in some way. and the ion was a good starter gun 5 years ago... I still don't forsee any bad *** high end guns being made by Gog, but I hope I'm wrong and maybe you can correct me?

The 09 Impulse was a pretty nice gun. It just so happened that SP was in the works of going under so I don't think it really got a chance. People were probably skeptical about being able to get parts, service, etc. Other than that, almost all the people I know that owned an Impulse have held on to it and still really like it. From what I've experience it shot pretty darn nice.

Would be nice for GoG to bring out a "Shocker"...something that shoots quite like the Luxe, but at a more affordable price. How much were Shockers brand new back in the days? $900+?

Yea the shocker was top of the line **** back in the day and I still own 2 I love them, 09 impulse was awesome I loved it just hated the feed neck and eyes, but I also think you were right ppl were scared the couldn't get parts.

I'm not associated with gog at all and I think they have good guns right now, not the greatest but defientaly not the worst. But here's the point I've been try to make I could not shoot the guns in the psp or nppl. Would love to see something new

Why can't you shoot the guns in PSP or NPPL?
What prevents you? It certainly isn't speed because the tourney speed limit is hovering around 12 right now and the black heart board has a psp and nppl mode and is capable of being flashed to whatever the current speed cap is.
I'm not trying to crap on your post but I'm not aware of anything that disqualifies it from tourney use.
I shoot a luxe and my back up is a G-1. Completely comfortable with either in all situations.
