*The first upgrade you should get
1.a new high-pressure regulator (Custom Products, Dye, Torpedo)
2.Get a new board(chaos board.)
3.Get Pds if you can
Cheap, fast, small, light, good paint job, great parts, and cheap.
feed neck is to small
kind of an air hog
The bushmaster bko is awsome. For the price ($300) you get all you need to start tounements. It is very small and compact. It is also very light (like 2.6 lbs. or something). I had a tippmann for years and it held up good, but those are the toughest things in the world. But now my bko even feals as sturdy as my tippmann. My bko is very fast, the sites say 18 balls per second, but i dowt it, it probally goes 16 max, which is still really fast. You could probally get 18 if you set it perfect, but thats hard. The trigger is good to on it, you can adjust it to like a mouse-click). It is "4-point" adjustable.
The regulator is good to but is not the best, you should get a new regulator for your first upgrade. It also waste my air alot i only get like 400 shots per tank(47/3000), but thats probally because i set the reg. wrong. This makes the bko very loud. The feed neck is also to small, should of made it bigger, oh well. I have heard people compare this gun to the impulse and the autococker.
1. The impulse can only go only 13 balls per second. That sucks. Why would you pay $100 more for less balls. Why? ( Of course the vision would be alot better though.)
2. The autococker sucks even worse. My friend just got a blue 2004 stock auto cocker, and its slow as hell. He payed $360 too. :>} The autocockers arnt as good, you cant shoot fast, their heavier, and their more expensive. Autocockers aint got nothen to the bko (even all the problems i said for the bko, the autococker still sucks more).
The bko is like a mini impulse, which has been upgraded, faster, cheaper, and better looking. I give it a 9 because it is so cheap and you get so much more for the price. It is the best gun to get if you want to move into the tournement level. Dont get an impulse or an autococker, cause there just a waste.
9 out of 10

don't knock the cocker. It is definately one of the most accurate guns out there. but everything else i don't like about it. my friend had an e-cocker, it was soooooo heavy. his gun was weighed more dry than my spyder with 200 balls. easily. but it's not just the weight that i don't like, (i know there are much lighter cockers out there) it's everything else.
hey, AJ backman guy, of course your impulse vision is going to be faster than my stock bko... but how much did you pay for it???; ) Your talking about 200 bucks more buddy. i was refering to stock impulse too. they only go like 13 bps, (says on site), for $450, when you could get a bko for $300 (18 bps). Plus yours is probally a decked out gun, probally really nice, but mines just stock.
hey, im sorry i ever wrote this review, i was soooo wrong about it, bko's suck nutz, dont buy one, worst investment ever. i appologize to the aj backman guy, and anybody who read this review and bought one, it was good at first, but sucks now, so i went back to the old tippmann 98, now thats a good investment, GO TIPPMANN!!!!!
