Upgrades:
Well the first thing you need is an egg or a halo and a nitro tank, required for bushmasters, then upgrade the barrel, a all-american is good, then some good mods. are a new high pressure reg, such as a aka sidewinder, a low pressure reg, a good one's a palmers micro rock, the 15 degree asa is nice cause its easier to hold your reg with it the the stock strait. The trigger is good on the gun but a z grip can be bought, which is a forward facing grip, not much to look at but its supposed to be easier to hold. Then you could get a locking feed so you don't have to sand down the halo for it to fit. Another thing that is good to get is a mini gauge cause the stock gauge is huge. a good place to buy icd upgrades is tantrumpaintball.com.
Strengths: light, low pressure running, fast, good looks, and less than other high performance guns.
Weaknesses: stock high pressure reg
Review: this gun is very good and will shoot great right out of the box. when you first get it you may have some reg problems because the high pressure and low pressure reg. can seem hard to balance correctly but you get the hang of it soon, on thing to keep in mind is that when u make an adjustment to one reg u will probably have to make one to the other. The gun shoots great it is fast and accurate and has a very nice trigger that can be set just right to ur preferences, one for trigger pull, one for how far in the pull the micro switch (which fires the gun ) is hit, and one for the spring, which determines the tight or looseness of the trigger. One thing you will have to do to the trigger is go get lock tight and take out the trigger adjustment screws and put the lock tight on them because they can shake and move( not fall out) and cause the micro switch not to be hit and then you have to reset so put on the lock tight and you wont have that problem, and you can still move the screws for adjustments once the lock tight is on them. The stock high pressure reg. is not the best there is and can be very finicky some times because it was designed with a spring pack (not the same as a spring) and can break. an aka sidewinder, MacDev gladiator, or bob long torpedo are all good regs and i would recommend the sidewinder as the best. the stock barrel is ok but to get the best performance that is one thing to upgrade. Another plus to the new b2k3 is that is has cocker threads not icd which makes it easier to find the barrels you want, all 04' icd guns now have cocker threads. it also runs best at 225 psi or so which is a very low psi and if you want to have even better gas efficiency you can get a palmers micro rock (warranty for Glenn palmer's lifetime) and a new valve, along with the sidewinder. the stock bolt is about as good as they get, its light and works just fine, but the shocktech 04' bolt looks nice. once again i found good mods for bushmasters at tantrumpaintball.com
Conclusion: it is well worth the money and you will be very satisfied, id buy it again if given the chance, it performs just as good as any other gun for quite a bit less than any other
