Want to buy 09 Impulse

I have an old Impulse and want to buy one of the newer ones my friend is selling, but I was wondering why they don't make new ones anymore (are they bad or very faulty?)

Just want to hear some owners opinions.

Smart Parts is temporarily restructuring. All the signs are pointing to them going out of business though.

yea i've heard the rumors too but i really don't think they'll be going under, they are too wide spread.. worst case they get bought up but will still offer support and whatnot for their markers..

i myself am also looking for a reasonably priced impulse.. would love to work out a trade involving my Fly'd Angel A1 that has less than 5000 shots through it

even if for some reason they do go under... their company is huge and more then well known in the paintball world. somebody would buy them up in a second. and even if they dont somebody would buy the dlx and the new impulse designs from them.

currently atm this is what i believe is happening

1. they are one of the few companies that is not out sourcing their products. They are paying high wages for American workers.
2. They are going to move to China or some place where labor is cheaper
3. They will then make more money
4. Everyone goes home happy
