lpr, freak incerts/kit, max-flo 4500 tank, otb trigger frame
Strengths: fast
Weaknesses: none for an impulse
Review: good gun, if you want to see the way it works, then go to my rjr review-the rats are the same, (with my set-up) but the milling is different, the 2003 rat is the convertible type. good accuracy, good deal too, the base models start at about 700$.
Conclusion: great impulse, in my opinion, the rat line of impulses is the best (other than AI's). the only thing the gun really needs is a new trigger frame. although it comes with a blade, it is not the trigger pull i would expect from a high end impulse.

The trigger pull, the one my friend accidently shot some one with it was so light, is the reason you gave it a nine??

i gave it a nine because it isn't the best custom impulse out there. i preditory impulse or an AI is better stock than a rat.

Thats why they cost so much more. Have you ever heard of you get what you pay for? Yeah... and it comes with a VFF... no need for that to be an upgrade.

I just realized YOU DONT EVEN HAVE THIS GUN! I belive that is against the rules... is it not?! The Rat is worth every penny. THey could sell it for a lot more and people would still buy the great gun,service, and name.

YOu give the RJR a 10, and not this. Also, you said you have an OTB Frame here, an AI frame on RJR post, and also an angel frame converted into an impy frame on the RJR post. SO you have 3 trigger frames? Thats $450.00 Also, a v2 Werm Trigger... you must be some rich little kid, because adults dont lie like this. You spent all this money on this gun. I dont belive it.

I own an AI frame, an otb frame, a preditory frame, and is used to play with but not own an i-frame. i own three impulses. i shouldn't have put less than a month, i should have put just tested under how long you have it inthe review because I don't actually own it, my neighbor does. the best thing about the rat is the customer serivice, and the rat is a great impulse, the thing is that it doesn't preform as well as other impulses, and i personally think that they should have incorperated a new trigger frame on the rat. many people would disagree with you about how you say it has a vff so no need to buy a lpr, first of all it's a hfv made by new designz, not a voodoo full flow, and there is a good reason to buy an lpr-lower bolt pressure and/or more efficicncy. the reason some of my posts have completely different setups is that sometimes i switch my gear around between the guns and the marker setup section doesn't update itself. oh yah, i used to have a v2 worm stick with kk, but sold it. i gave the rjr a 10 because it is a better deal for the money than a rat 03 is. i personally expected the rat 03 to preform or outpreform an AI, but i was wrong, even though it is still great, i was just suprised. to clear up the fact that this gun really does preform i will change the 9 to a 10. oh yah, i work for ever peice of equipment that i get, and i am by no mean a "rich kid" for you forget that they only buy em1's and speeds. i have spent countless hours at a shop where i work (duh) and at a local field working on guns and know my impulse inside out. i take the time to learn as much as i can about what i get and what i have so i can make it as perfect as possible.
Thanks for your comment, i will be alot more specific about what i say next time.
