Products Used:
Tippmans, Spyders, Shocker03, Angels
Marker Setup: ICD B2K 2004
MacDev LPR
CP HPR
Recommended
Upgrades:
LPR and HPR, stock HPR works ok but spikes a little (about 20-30psi) using a 850psi output tank.
Barrel Kit
Strengths: Very quiet, accurate
Speed is good, but wouldn't say that it rips
Weaknesses: Trigger is not bad but feels mushy compared to a stock Shocker trigger.
Review: This is a pretty good marker with very good accuracy and acceptable speed. The good thing is, with some upgrades, it can rip. The stock board is not bad and with a right trigger setting, it can fire pretty damn fast. Not the type of marker for shooting long streams at say 15+bps easily. (I sure there's some people out there more used to the trigger can though)

The quality is decent but initially, I had to use some JB Weld on the plug under the LPR because it was leaking. This was the ICD techs advice. I was told that they initially used loctite but when I installed the new LPR, the loctite must of broken loose. They currently use JB Weld at the factory. Quick and permanent fix.

Consistency was a bit dissappointing but it may not entirely be the marker's fault. On the chrono, I was getting 274, 274, 280, 270, 290, 283 .. But, I was using crappy paint and the paintball size where not that consistent itself. I am also using a CP HPR with a 850psi tank. The CP reg max limit is 900psi so it comes pretty close. I will be testing it more using better paint, a bbl kit, and a 450psi tank. Check back on an update.

The trigger can be set to be very short and light but it can bounce. Setting the trigger to the shortest and lightest possible while heavy enough so it wouldn't bounce slowed the ROF a bit. Its also a little bit on the mushy side when compared to Shocker and Eblade cocker triggers. I will be installing and testing a Zenitram trigger frame with a magnetic blade trigger. I'll post an update in a couple weeks on it.
I have tried out another B2k with a Choas board and Zenitram frame and it Ripped!
Conclusion: If you are in the market for a tourney level gun but you are a tight budget, this is it and more. In its stock form, I don't think it has unlocked a lot of its potential. The the beauty of it. If you are getting into tourneys or already are, this marker is a good start. With a little upgrades along the way, you can get this thing shooting very good.
