Question What is the Deal with this guN!

Alright I sit here wondering if I understand the point of smart parts doing what they are doing at all. What the hell is this nerve thing and how is it better than a shocker? It dosnt say anything about its performance. And to me it looks exactly the same as the new shocker anyway, whats the poin? can someone, maybe a smart parts sponsored player give me the uh 411 as you can say on this.

Exactly the same as a Shocker? Did you fail to see that the Shocker is a 1-tube stack while the Nerve is a 2-tube stack? This likely indicates that they function totally differently internally.

The new nerve regulates the pressure inside the gun automatically or something, when in the gun (sounds like a reg but it isnít). I read somewhere that it apparently has some kind of new technology, like every gun that comes out has. i am excited about the nerve though but idk if it will be as big as the hype

i see it as a better looking completely tricked impulse. I mean, it looks like they just redesigned it so that it doesnt need a tray; plus shrinking the "front pneumatics" down. If the efficiency is anything like the current impulses, and the price is anything similar to what has been speculated, then it should be a nice gun. So far efficiency is the only complaint i have heard of new shocker performance.


Ignore my grammer, I write like a 3 year old....

ok, after looking at the pictures again i saw a very faint resemblance to one intimidator. If you think about it, the two guns look very similar, kinda. Someone is gonna pull up the patent and show how stupid this post is, but my theory is this gun is supposed to compete with the timmy, and the shocker is supposed to compete with the matrix...and they keep the impulse as their "low-end-extremely-popular" gun...(i wouldnt dare say it competes with the b2k....

Low end? How many pro-teams do you see shooting impulses? Im talking X-Ball and Pro division here. They are high end guns or so many pro and x-ball teams would not be shooting them. Yes, I know those teams are sponsored and paid to shoot the guns, but they wouldnt shoot a low-end gun even if they were paid. Trust me, they arent being paid as well as Bad Company is to shoot the spyders. I moved from angels (just cuz they have a low resale right now does not mean they are not at the top of the heap) to impulses because the impulse fits my style of shooting more comfortably than does the angel. With the right internals it is an INCREDIBLE gun. I love mine, they are both great.
Just a public service announcement *steps off the soapbox*

Custom ones like RAT impluses are high end, but stock impulses? nah. Maybe mid-class electro.

yeah the stock impulse is sooo much better cuz the stock B2K3 comes stock with a LPR, no FSDO, comfortable frame, actual milling, cocker threads, and full trigger adjustment and the stock Impluse doesn't....

After talking to a SP tech that I know about it, here is what he had to say. I also had a chance to see it at Las Vegas PSP.


You think the Shocker is small, just wait till you see the nerve. This thing is the smallest gun I have seen.

Ok, so my friend says the Nerve is crazy fast. The accuracy will be at least as good as the impulse. So it is just a fast really really small imp.


NOT WORTH THE CASH in my opinion

1: mag is smaller
2: cocker is more accurate then imp, nerve, and shocker combined.

stupidsmart parts always thinking that cuz it comes in a box wih little target on it, it must be the best gun in the universe.

acurracy not there huh?

Hey , autocockers are the the most accurate guns at the furthest ranges because the bolt never, ever, touches the ball, along with pump guns, they dont hit the ball therefore deforming the ball into a more elongated shape such as a bullet (yes the ball does turn into an oval when it comes out of the barrel), they are more accurate because there is less varience btw each shot of the type of deformation on the ball

mac 17, the autococker bolt cocks and feeds every ball into the barrel thereby touching every ball. If you don't know anything about cockers you shouldn't pretend to.

NO nerve yet. I talked to SP guy a IAO. He says its not ready yet not for a while. Apparently the shocker isnt either. There was only two in the place. None for sale. Figures doesnt it.
