Review: Basicly, the shocker is a very small, light, downright sexy gun. Its very accurate, and quite fast. Its ok out of the box, i recommend buying the HE bolt as soon as possible, since the gun gets horrible efficiency out of the box. I was getting 400 off my old PMI 48/3000. After a bolt kit (SP HE bolt), i was getting a little over 1700 with my 68/4500. 540 with that god awful PMI. Pretty good, operating at 170 PSI with dwell @ 32 chirps (8 ms). Still not as efficient as some other guns out there, but thats nothing to complain about since theres all day air!! The stock reg is pretty good, the quickest recharge ive ever seen. I cant report spike range yet, cause i was using the stock barrel, so my paint to bore match wasnt the greatest. All it really needs is a good bolt, and a feedneck, which i really wish would have been stock, but the companies have to make money some how. I absolutely love this gun!! Always wanted one, and will use it over any other gun given the opportunity, but thats just me. The gun works well for me, it may not for others. ITS ALL PERSONAL PREFERENCE. The only problem ive ever had with it was user error, my uncle hooked me up to a scuba, and we gave it way too much pressure, and warped the spool in the noid. HAHAHA, but that was user error. Dont let it discrimage you from buying this gun, it is an amazing gun. And as far as all those people who complain about shockers being made of weak material, thats also user error. Who says work on yur gun using a freaken guerrilla grip and go over torque yur threads???? Mine was once completely black, and a buddy of mine sanded it down to the metal, so its now silver and black. The metal is pretty tough, as i havnt had any problems with the body what so ever...
Conclusion: I strongly recommend this gun, but keep in mind, you WILL need some sort of aftermarket bolt. I recommend the HE by smart parts, since they wont touch it if it has internals that arent their own. Im giving it a 10 because its my most favorite gun, but really it should be about a 9 since you have to buy a bolt. If your going to use a halo or other hopper with a thick feedneck, get a clamping feedneck like a function feed neck or a q-lock. An egg fits great on it, and will keep up with it. Remember...... user preference.
