Review: When I finally broke down and decided to get a new marker, I went to my fields store and took a look around after X-Mas. And there was this thing I had never seen before and asked about it. A shocker...so small, sleek and light! My friend had one of the original shockers (pre 2000) and it was ridiculously heavy. I picked this thing up and it felt like nothing...i've read paperbacks that weight more. So I took it home.

At home I took a look at the trigger settings. They're so simple a child can set the trigger up the way they want it. As for the dwell, I didn't monkey with that cuz he said it was fine the way the factory sends it. The ROF is easy to adjust, I just took it all the ways down until it made a funny noise and then went back up three chirps.

So I gassed it up...a leak. I cant remember whether it was the bolt o ring or the bumper but i took it back and the guy just gave me a new part. After that I was set.

The first time I played with it I was amazed. I never thought I'd be able to throw as much paint as I did. But I was indoors (January now) and did the splits going into the snake and ended my day early. But for a few hours to kill time, the gun preformed excellent.

This past Sunday was the first day in months I'd been able to get off to play with the tourney guys, which i was saving my final thoughts for. This thing just ripped, all morning. Ropes and ropes of paint from the back to the front. Ball on ball accuracy from back stand up to back stand up. The profile is so sweet that I only had one hopper hit and that was off the break. I was able to shoot 4 140 pods and a full egg and still have gas left so things weren't as bad as I heard.
Conclusion: Overall, this gun is great. Smart Parts did a magnificent job re engineering these guns. I would recommend anybody who wants to buy a good electro gun buy one of these. Go private label and save some cash. You get the upgraded board, the HE bolt, and the double trigger instead of the regular trigger, plus a slightly taller feed neck for a taller stack. Not ot mention the milling is sweet as hell.

You could buy an Impulse to save money, but by the time you trick it out ot compete with this thing you could have saved yourself some time. Same with an EBlade or any other gun. DM's and Tiimy's are too expensive and this thing competes with em all.

As for efficiency, I was able to carry a full pack and hopper and shoot it and have gas left for a team guy to rip in it for a while to satisfy his curiosity.

As for the nay sayers, stop complaining. So what the gun says Dynasty on the trigger frame which is covered by my hand. The same stuff except the board comes on any other private label Shocker. If the store had an Octane or Strange one in stock instead of this one I still would have bought it. Does that make me a tool as well? What about any of the private label Timmies? And to think I saved some money while I was at it. Talk and talk all day, I'll still be watchin you walk to the dead box.

Does this marker come with the turbo charger bolt from smart parts?
