Does not come with all the allen keys needed to adjust things.
When I opened this out of the box, the first thing I noticed was the finish on the gun and barrel....it is just stunning. I then charged the battery for 40 minutes, as instructed. Then, I put on my tank with just under 2,500psi left in it and my hopper and about 3 full pods and went into my backyard to test it out. Even at fast rates of fire, the consistancy of shots is incredible! Not only do they all go the same distance, but they also all shot in a tiny little cluster, which makes it even better. Also, I noticed the psi on my tank was around 1,300. That means I shot a hopper and 3 pods, that's around 500 paintballs, and I only used 1200psi, which is amazing air efficeincy.
One problem I do have is how all the allen keys I need did not come with the gun, so I had to go out and buy them myself. I could not adjust the velocity or trigger because those specific allen keys did not come with the gun. And the grip does not fit 100% perfectly over the grip frame, but that could just be mine being faulty. Other than those two minor, fixable things, the gun is perfect.
VERY IMPORTANT: ----> The only major problem about this gun actually has nothing to do with the gun itself. The maker of the Impulse, Smart Parts, has recently gone out of business. On the plus side, the price of the Impulse has dropped almost $200, but a major downside is, you cannot ship this gun back to Smart Parts for any maintanance you may need. For instance, my feed neck is sort of broken, and when I went to send it back, they said they could not fix it anymore because, for lack of better wording, they do not exist anymore. So, in my opinion, this marker itself is one of the best on the market today, but if you are prone to breaking things or smashing your marker around, I do not recommend getting this because antyhing you break is on you to fix now.
If you are willing to buy the best and have the money for it, buy the new Smart Parts Impulse. Just do not be rough with it because now that Smart Parts is out of business, it is on you, the owner of the gun, to deal with and fix all of its problems.
