Cool 09 Impulse Questions

I'm kinda interested in getting an 09 impulse, but I was curious what the parts availability for this marker is...I don't want an expensive paperweight if something goes bad

I was also curious how you guys thought this marker compared to the JT impulse.

Thanks

I think the 09 Impulse is superior to the JT Impulse. Performance is the same, the JT is definitely lighter and has the OLED, but the 09 has those quirky design features that I think make the marker special. Also, I think the 09 has a better trigger and frame, but that's subjective.

Parts availability is non-existent. O-rings are obviously easy to come by, but if you break a major component you may be SOL. I actually bought a second Impulse just so I'd have some spare parts on hand.

If you're willing to take the risk on having a paperweight but want something unique and somewhat rare, go for the 09. If you want the same performance but a more user-friendly gun, go with the JT.

Also, if you get one and it becomes a paperweight, let me know. I love having spare parts.

Thank you for your prompt, and informative reply

Now in regards to the 09 impulse being superior, you mean, superior because it has desirable design quirks? If so, could you elaborate on those design quirks?

You can still find SOME parts. But like predator has stated they are hard to find. As long as it's not your main marker you will be fine!

I lurve the grip frame and trigger, it's my favorite trigger in any gun I've ever used by far. I love the fact that both regs are in the grip frame, I love the shape/look/feel of the front grip, I love the fact that the valve itself extends out into the "LPR" cap ( ), I love the hinge eye covers, and I love that it's Ion threaded.

The way the feedneck stem attaches to the body sucks beyond belief though.

Also, Predator's a nice guy and wants you to send a paperweight gun to me, he doesn't need it.
