Review: Ok, I have had this gun for a while now, and I finally decided to write a review. Ok, when I first got it, I was soooo excited to finally have a tourney-grade gun! I immediately did something stupid however, and messed with the set csrews for the trigger, not knowing what to do. I broke the spring (silly me), and I had to wait yet another 4 weeks to get it back because ICD is slow with repairs. Once I got it back, I knew fully how to adjust it right, and I made this thing rip ropes with its adjustments. I went paintballing, and everyt time I go at least 2 people have to come up to me and say "Hey, I like your IMPULSE." I'm not a fan of Smart Parts. After paintballing with this gun for about a month, I noticed a "psstt" sound every time I shot when I was low on air. This, I learned, is what it sounds like when the valve in the gun gets loaded with too much or too less air, and it will leak though the valve and put too much pressure in the solenoid. This is a bad thing, and too much will hurt the BKO, so I suggest a Vapor Works Valve, the ones that NEVER leak. Also, if you chop a ballin the breach, you're in for a ride. Every time I chop, the bolt gets stuck, and it requires a good bit of force to pull it back to its position before, and the gun will be as innacurate as a tippann and spyder. I suggest if you ever chop in the breach to just A. call yourself out if it's recball, cuz you're going nowhere for a good 2 mins, and when you do, you're just wasting paint or B. remove the bolt and barrel and squeege (again, i suggest that for recball, twhen there's not much on the line). The gun is pretty consistant also, and operate at around 250psi. I give it a thumbs up as for my BKO has been loyal to me for a good half-year, and I suggest you buy it if you are just going into paintball.
Conclusion: In conclusion, I would suggest this BKO for any new speedballer or tourney player, because it will work awsome, and it's cheap. However, DON'T keep it as long as I have unless you are low on cash for 6 months for a timmy. Also, resale on this baby is pretty low, so don't expect much monet back from tricking it out when/if you sell it, also it makes a great backup gun!
