problems

Everyone in every other forum says that bushmasters are pieces of junk and they always break down. I don't believe this. I've heard that the 04s rarely break down. Could you clarify who is right. Please state if you have ever had any problems, or whatever. I am on your side of this issue so please do not flame me. Could you guys help me out?

I wanted to start this so I could send them the thread so they could read how wrong they are. If you have never had any problems please post also.

Thank you for your reply. Once I get more replies then I will show the pmi forum. By the way, people with piranhas think that b2ks suck. Doesn't that make you mad?

LOL, I thought maybe the Impulse forum but the PMI FORUM??!? lmao. It's just ppl are too obsessed with their piranha markers. They don't know anything until they have shot a b2k.

So have you had any real problems with yours? Or just the normal stuff?

No problems yet, yea just normal stuff like a bad o-ring or a chop. Piranhas don't even compare, they're blowback markers

Thats what I keep saying, but they say impulses are crap compared to evos. I question this also. b2k4 are better than evos, but they say b2k4s always break down. Yet they haven't shot one. Sound like they don't know what they are talking about?

Yes they don't. Just leave em be. All evo owners will say it's better than a b2k4, and b2k4 owners will say the same about evo's. Leave them think what they want.

B2K's and BKO's have basicaly been the same since 2000, except for some electronics. In March of 2005, ICD will offer the first major changes in all this time.
They are one of the best, up-gradable, fully pneumatic markers on the market.
They're inexpensive, and because of that they are often a first upgrade for many people. It's a big jump from a spyder clone (ha ha... threw that one in for you PMI lovers) to a pneumatic. Often times it's hard to get the hang of setting the regs and trouble-shooting a marker with more moving parts and a solinoid that works a ram instead of a sear-tripper.
Let me assure you though, MOST PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED WITH ICD GUNS ARE USER ERROR.
It is truly awsom to shoot out a guy with a Timmy or Trixy after he just got done looking down his nose at you for playing with such a low budget gun. Then when they see how they rip, they want to know about them and try it out. I especially love shooting cocker guys.
But the best is the loyalty of the ICD family. We help each other, and when we see other guys with ICD guns, we are attracted like a magnet and always eager to loan equipment or offer a soda.
Yeah, a family...

Uh actually, you don't know what you are talking about. I've seen guys with $1500 into thier spyder that absolutely rip. A blow back design is one of the fastest cycling designs invented... way faster than a pneumatic ram actuated marker.
But the kick... whew, what a kick they have!

They do kick. Even with the lightest of internals. Mods can be done to reduce kick.

Kick from a bushy (stock even) is unnoticeable compared to the blowback style.
