That cyborg is sexy, does the trigger look oddly shaped to anyone but me?

How's everyone doing?

Who still has one of these things? I just put a hopper through mine after deciding to throw my AKA STS shorty HPR on it. Man, I forgot how nice it shot. Hush bolt, Ego pin, Lurker barrel....extremely smooth, quiet and just ball on ball. I may have to use it next weekend at the scenario game.

I had to sell all my hardware when I moved unfortunately. I saw noble selling a truckloads worth of guns in the bst. I'm already planning the impulse I'll get when I move back stateside.

Looks good. Did you replace the stock one because of the snap clip or because this reg does a lot better?

Neither. Just because. I'm old school and like my AKA regs.

Mine is the only electro I own. Shot it a few weeks ago at a scenario game, worked beautifully.

Imped, you blend your old schoolness well. There are those guys that refuse to buy any new gear on the principle that there has been no big "evolutions" basically since the shoebox shocker came out. To each his own, but I don't necessarily miss having to buy all the extra parts for a gun because the manufacturers feednecks, boards, triggers, ASA mounts (remember those huuuuge dropforwards?) and regs were clearly inferior. Don't get me wrong, I love upgrades and customization, but some of the stock components of many guns 15-10 years ago were just a joke.

So far my plan is to get a good looking impulse to play with, and a cheaper one for spare parts.

Honestly the only thing I felt like the impulse "needed" was a rubber grip on the front, which was easily remedied by an exalt grip.

Yeah, I'm what I consider a 'progressive old schooler.' I'll willingly work on (and just about always fix) anything and tend to have a very unbiased view in regards to manufacturers and designs. I love the new stuff but feel incomplete without my older stuff, as well. I've just really enjoyed watching the industry and designs evolve.

Yeah it is interesting to see the evolution, even just looking at the impulses when they were first made by Smart Parts up until now. The 09 impulse had some good changes and innovations and looked almost luxey, but the JT impulse was a pretty big departure once again. Still think it was a mistake to brand the impulse as JT and wonder why they made some of the changes they did (like going with a macroline over a gas through).

In order to keep the tiny profile of the Impulse while ditching the macro line, they would've either had to copy the PE AT pipe or go with a more complex internal plumbing system like the G6R. There's a balance between simplicity, cost, size and giving the customer what they want and they must have decided the cost and simplicity of macro line were worth not giving the customer something that has become a preference for many. I would love to see them try again and give us a new Impulse with no LPR and internal plumbing.

Agreed. If they can keep the ergos the same I will be all over that. My favorite part is how this gun feels in my hand. Sadly I don't see any Impulses for a while if ever. I'm guessing KEE didn't own all the impulse IP given Gog's involvement, so I wonder who owns what in regards to patented names, technology, etc.

It will also be interesting to see what happens with GI running the show.

Yeah selling a bunch of my collection but still keeping a handful of markers. Had the Impulse listed for sale and had a buyer interested in it, then a firend told me he would buy it, so took it down, them my friend backed out, so still have the Impulse. Think I'll just hang on to it a lil longer. Really is a nice shooting gun.

Thought I saw a guy looking for a purple/green gun in the versus section and he was considering an impulse. Might have been looking new though- but you're guns all look great, I am sure you take good care of them.

Nice man, here's mine:



I really, really like it. It does everything great but falls short in one (very important to me) category: efficiency. It maxes out at about 1300 shots from a full 77/4500, which is pretty poor. Otherwise, it's truly fantastic. I used it in 29* weather with the FSDO disabled and it performed flawlessly.
