I don't think that it's similar at all but a Black Dragon
Marker Setup: BK2 Gen 8 with 14" All American Freak, AA vigilante reg, Kapp Micro Apocalypse Drop Forward, Kapp on/off bottom line, Ricochet 2k, Vapor valve, Vapor Trigger, Vapor Bolt, MacDev LP reg, crossfire 68/4500 Tank with lp output
Recommended
Upgrades:
New Barrel of course, New Reg maybe a gladiator or Max Flow, Low Pressure Reg (MacDev), and new trigger I don't like Blade Triggers.
Strengths: This is a great marker! It has a two way adjustable tigger. With a little practice the trigger is as fast as anything out there. There are plenty of upgrades (thought you really have to look hard for them) The stock barrel on the Gen 8's is a two piece CJ barrel, it's not bad but compared to the Freak it's not accurate enough. The Bushy uses regular 9 volt batterys. I love the quick pull bolt for cleaning and when you get that unfortunate ball break(from shooting to fast of course) I think the Price is Great for what you get. I payed 450.00 for mine. They also have a Paint Detection System that can be installed .
Weaknesses: The 4-way is a bit fussy. But with a gauge built just for the Bushy you can dial it up to the 90psi that it needs and leave it. Problem solved. The Blade Trigger is a bit sloppy but is fixed with a few different triggers. Again Problem solved. It is a bit tall so keep that hopper tilted in. The wirering is a little bit of a pain. With out quick disconects you can't seperate the trigger frame from the body. No big deal if you are not doing your own upgrades. ICD has a screwed up HP reg. You need to buy one of there (or other) vertical addaptors to put on a aftermarket regulator. But though ICD there cheap and problem solved. Everyone coming up and asking if it is an Impules.
Conclusion: I really love this marker. It has the accuracy I need and the speed I need. Is this the best marker out there? No, but it is one of the best and at less then half the price of other makers like it. You can keep up with just about everyone on the field and have more money to spend on paint. The few problems that the bushy has are quickly upgraded and I belive ICD is working on new Versions of the Busy that will incorperate this problems and have a paint detection system available for it as well. So in conclusion if you want the speed of a Angle but don't like the price buy a Bushy and upgrade the heck out of it. I think it's more fun that way! But as with any product don't trust what I say find someone who has one and ask to see it used or perhaps use it yourself.
