Just got my first impulse, super stoked.

It's serial number 018300, not sure what year that makes it. Has evil bolt, max flow that I know for sure. When I turn it on it chirps and I get the blue light on the back when the trigger is depressed. But how do I go about setting modes and should it cycle without a tank on it? Just dry fire for the sake of seeing it work? Will get a couple picks up in a bit.

Edit* found a buddy with a tank with some air and confirmed it works, small leak from the back side of the max flow like the calendar under where the tank mounts.

The chirping is the cricket board. There are only two possible modes of fire (and perhaps just one due to your gun being old) - capped and uncapped with vision.

No, the gun will not cycle without air.

Please read the stickies on this board, and let me give you the best warning possible: When taking your solenoid off, and then putting it back on - DO NOT over tighten the tiny little screws. If you strip those threads in the body then you can kiss your gun goodbye.

I've been sorta skimming thru the stickies pretty much since I set up to buy it. Specifically the options for upgrading boards and adding eyes. They were the beeznees when I used to play and I had to quit for a while but always wanted one so here it is. I only play recreationally so don need a 600+ new fancy marker.

Thank you sir. Got to play with it today after I fixed the leak in the maxflow. Works flawlessly. For the age of the marker I was impressed. Any recommendations on the easiest board to come by?

any grease should work fine. dow33 is fine or sl33k or any of the other rebranded dows.
boards will be pretty much whatever you stumble on. was or blackhearts are about the best but honestyly i wouldnt even mess with a new board unless you find a great deal or need one for settings

easiest board to come by is the nonvision cricket or the vision cricket, basically what you already have. and as much flak as i'm going to catch for this, i've found that eyes really aren't needed if you have a quality loader, Halo or similar

dow33 lube is is the best
