Review: look and feel-

all in the eye of the beholder, but i think it looks great, although it is a bit tall. It is also a bit heavier than my brothers impulse, but nothing unbearable that's for sure. I got all black, and the anno is very nice, and doesn't have that purple kind of tint (you know what i mean?)

Trigger-

very fast, very adjustable, light.... its perfect :)

ease of use-

it has two switches, one for pds, and one for the on off, i LOVE this, because you always know for sure what settings you have on, and you don't have to rely on a dim lcd to know if your gun is on or not, just flick the switch down.

Internal wiring-

eek... BE CAREFUL, when you take off the grip frame. i knew that the wiring was weak, so i took it off really carefully, and still ripped out the pds wire from the switch. its a tiny little switch making for a hard sauder.

efficiency-

terrible efficiency.. honestly, i shot just air for maybe a hundred shots, and my 68/45 HP tank dropped 1000 psi.. but i hear the vapor valve is an easy upgrade for that

other-

im sure this appys to only me... but now when i air the gun up, i can hear a leak from the feedneck, very small, but sputtering. i looked in the manual, and it recomends a new cupseal in the valve... but when i tryed opening it up to get to the valve (being a noob with bushys) i ripped out the pds wiring... i gave up there and put the grip frame back on... oh well..

manual-

completely awful -- it doesnt have a parts diagram or anything. It says nothing at all about field stripping, making it a bit tough, if you look on the icd forum on pbnation.com there are people that really know there stuff, and im pretty sure there are stickys explaining the whole process.. i havent really looked though...

price-

b2k4 w/ PDS $300
freak junior mini kit $85
evil detonator reg $52
cp macroline kit $20
cp unimount ~$20
vapor valve??? $50

....$527 total, for everything you will need not including a tank and hopper

so.... yup.. im sure you can see my point here
Conclusion: The b2k4 is a great gun, even stock, but if you want it to preform at its best

I *havent* played with this at a field yet... so i really don't have the full knowledge on how this gun preforms, but i think i get a pretty good grasp just by playing around with it
