ur mom is crap.....

bushies are great for busting out when everyone at the field has the same gun. dont listen to these kids who are talking crap on it. especially if the cap nowadays is 10 BPS, some fields will limit this and it has no problems at that speed. if you go faster then you might get some chops, but its nothing some TLC can help

Instead of getting a bushmaster, try getting a Promaster. Based on the same platform, but are much smaller, and much newer. They can be had for the same price. I've had two Promasters, and to be completely honest, I like them just as much as any other gun Ive tried, including the newer DM's, Ego's, etc...

What are we up to? $240?
a clamping feedneck can be had for around $20

That's $260 and youre' getting a marker that's a bit larger, a bit heaver than new markers that can keep up with them.

You say the tray is making it too big and tall? That's ok, ICD greg makes a frame for it that deals with that issue; it costs $125 it's got one hell of a trigger on it too.

That's a grand total of $385 for a marker the size of an ego for significantly cheaper that will preform nearly exactly the same.
DM4s with UL Frames and c lever feedneck ring can be gotten for almost half that if I remember right.

yeah. so i think he's also saying that the PE sucks because they used to make bushies.
i bet he shoots an ego.
and the bonebreak bushies, yeah they really suck! there not as light or maybe even lighter then an ego, so they must be bad

Who's bashing ICD now? Best not touch that subject.

Bushmasters are great little (well, tall) guns. They can be had for cheap, modded, upgraded, tweaked, and tuned. They really aren't that dissimilar from you Ego's and Timmies.

Now, for the price, "better" can be had (or close). But I like Bushmasters. Alot, actually. If you like the way it holds and shoots, then pick it up. If not, move along.

^^^^ yeah......or else!!!!

but i agree they are very good little guns, as long as you have them tuned right. the only issue i remember ever having (when i shot one, never owned) was outshooting the hopper (way before halo's, 12v revvy's). so as long as thats taken care of and its taken care of on at least a semi regular basis, you should have absolutely no problems at all

Before the ACE, they had some really bad chopping issues. But since the dawn of force feed, it's not an issue.

My only complaint with them are the regs. They're mediocre at best. But everything else is great about the gun. Shoot, I still rock my blue/black fade B2K4 bone stock (well, new HPR) with my Rotor. Sucker is STILL fast, even by "todays" standards. And I love how they made the trigger pivot adjustable. I keep the pin in the middle slot. Seems the easiest for me to shoot fast.

The regulators did suck pretty bad. it's a mandatory replacement.

the triggers were the best out there stock and are freaking amazing.

well than it wouldnt be a b2k anymore itd be a frakenstien gun. im sorry but you will never get a b2k to be equivelent to any ego or highend gun. and for well under 385 you can actually get an ego so i think your statement is kinda foolish and the guy was right when he said they are obsolete. well if you had enough money you could make an ion the cats meow right? but its a dumb thing to do

My first paintball marker was an ICD Bushmaster B2K. It was a bit tall and little bulky, but I got used to it and it treated me well. It had a nice buttery smoothness to the shot and it was every bit as reliable as my X-Fighter$ Cyborg is now. It wasn't very gas efficient, but that shouldn't matter too much in my opinion. For the most part, I can't say anything bad about my old Bushy because I never had any real problems with it. I do remember that I only paid about $165 for mine with an 88ci 3000psi tank and Halo TSA (that's with shipping too). I wouldn't pay much more than around $150 as long as the gun is in great shape (no immediate repairs or part replacements required, body in good functioning condition) and comes with a tank and other items. Well, that's my 2 cents...and here's a pic:

wow. It would do you some good to calm down and read. One, I said MOST any other poppit. Am I saying that because I have it? I do own one right now, but have shot most other high ends as well. I would take my promaster over an 05 ego, and for the money over an 06 ego. I would take it over most timmys to, although I'd rather shoot a bob long timmy over the oh-so-overhyped ego. Night and day difference between the two? Really? Lets see. My promaster has less kick than the ego's I have shot, is just as efficient if set up right, I like the feel of my promaster better, and oh, its cheaper

So please get off of Planet Eclipse's nuts. Im not even ragging on egos. They are nice guns. But for the price they cost? Not worth it at all. And if your brother can not get a Promaster to work, then neither is his ego. And dumping 800 into a Promaster? Really? Is that even ****ing possible?

And btw: I dont give a **** about semi anyways, all I play is pump now. Largely because of people like you with egos, who sit and spray.

And to the OP: Gun choice is almost 100% personal preference. If you like the gun, and feel youre getting a pretty good value out of it, then thats what you should get. Dont listen to fanboys, and just make an educated decision.

Haha ok. Im an ion fanboy?
Nice. Im telling the OP he can save money and get a gun that to him, weill not make a difference in performance for the cost.

And I agree though, a UL'd PMR is a good choice for the price.
