Review: First off, I only tested this marker twice (same one both times), I do not own one. My biggest complaint was the nerve board. I've shot other shockers with different boards and they just shot better. I was also disappointed with the operating pressure/efficiency. My Ion I use as a backup has a lower operating pressure and get's better air efficiency than this Shocker did.

The marker looks amazing. The milling is just awesome. The snatch grip, lock on the feedneck, and the trigger guard are a bar instead of solid aluminum, adding to the cool look, and reducing weight. Comes with a freak barrel so you will get great accuracy. Also comes with Smart Parts on/off which is very smooth, but it doesn't bleed off the air when you turn it off.

Overall, it shot on par with shockers, but didn't really stand out from the rest like the Dynasty shocker does. It was better than a standard shocker, and I think it has the best milling of any marker. I give it an 8 because it didn't deliver the performance I would expect from a Private Label (PL) shocker.
Conclusion: If you do get it, make sure to upgrade the board. I don't think the price is worth the gun, but if you have to have a PL or unique gun, this would be the one to get. Looks great, shoots well enough. Based on performance, I would go with the Dynasty, based on looks I would go with the RL.

All Smart Parts guns are air hogs.
By the way, I totally agree. You are paying all that money and all you got was a Nerve board; pretty sad.
