Review: The first high end paintball marker I ever saw was a shocker, and from that point on that was the only marker I really realy wanted to get. So I saved up and in 06 I got an 03 shocker for 400$ used with a full freak kit. Now the previous owner took bad care of it so it needed an new solenoid, and the internals needed work, after that got done, Istarted to get to use it and havent put it down since. I dont use ramping but I can stil get between 15-17 bps with just my fingers (stock trigger also) its easy to walk, and super fast.

The freak kit is great for accuracy, but usually i can put so much paint in a general area that it doesnt matter anyway lol.

Maintinence is easy, gun isnt that complicated at all.

This gun has given me a few problems but after being serviced proffesionally (after preious owners mistreatment of it) it hasnt let me down.

I would recomend doing a little research on how they work before purchasing though, b/c if you now how to maintain it it will never let you down. Usually all your problems can be fixed with more lube.

If ball detents are screwd in too much the bolt destroys them. But just find a smally o-ring and put it around the detent and you set.

I'd take my shocker over an ego any day
Conclusion: I recently sold my upd ion in search of a better back up, and I find myself on the verge of just buying another shocker, haha. If you are new to the sport, or are looking for a great marker for a low cost, go for a shocker. It keeps up with all the new guns like egos, angels, and luxes. I wouldnt trade this gun for any other gun on the market. Oh and if you check ebay you can probably get on for like 240-290$.

Although i wont trade mine, it still isnt perfect, nothing is i will i could give it a 9 and 8/10s but that option was not given to me.
