Shocker 05-Was going to trade one for the pmr but decided against it, the pmr is much lighter
05 virtued shocker
New barrel right out of the box
possibley the ul frame because i didnt much enjoy the rubber grip, but my friend(who actually owns it) loved it so it is all a matter of personal opinon on that one
new feed neck, having to get an allen wrench after playing with one that just has a lever for three years got on my nerves
Fast, shot lasers on semi
Easy to understand
no on off stock
Friend got his gun off of ebay, which i was weary of because it was "bnib" for 90 less than it is supposed to go for. well all ended well when it came a day earlier than it was supposed to in excellent condition. when we aired the gun up our first instinct was to listen for any leaks, which we did happen to find. the fitting that screws into the regulator was just not fully screwed in from the Proto labs. that being said i would almost recomend just making sure that all the screws that should be tight, are.
I suppose i should mention the set up he had, semi capped at 18 eyes on and a egg 2 wth a y board, z board, i dont know, the one that says it does 23. and stock barrel. first few shots are kind of just off in the woods, sweet it works. than we try and actully hit what we are shooting at and our balls go off here and there 3 or four foot and not consitintley to one side either, it was like a spread from a shot gun. when we did end up ripping with the gun, which it does, i saw the stream from the side and it was a straight up laser beam of orange paint. no kick, fast, light and compact, this gun was awesome except for the barrel which isnt that big of a deal because i belive that it is autococker threads, and those are quite popular to find
for 400 dollars, you have a few options. pmr, mini, ephipeny or a used 05 or 06 higher end gun. of the three listed i have shot one and held three, as all of them were not perfect the epipheny felt like an unmilled block of metal with sharp blocky parts. the mini was light but i couldnt get over the bad feeling of the forgrip/battery and the pmr had the sticky frame. but i can personally say that the pmr had the best ergonomics of any marker I held and if i were to trade in my shocker today that is what i would be getting.
could have been but, i would like to think that a barrel can accomadate for many differnt types of paint, i know theres different sizes and what not but i run a .695 in my freak and never have i needed to change it for any type of paint i put through it. and regardless the barrel it comes with is a peice in my opinion it would be in the best interest to just buy a nice barrel. but to each his own
