2002 Silver BKO
ANS GX Reg
CP Lightning On/Off Drop Forward
68/3000 Crossfire (carbon fiber)
Nitro tank is a must to shoot the gun (excluding hooking up Palmer's Regs). A Drop, MAYBE a barrel if you really aren't happy with the stock ( the stock is surprisingly good) and an Egg to keep up. My regs are awesome and consistant, I only got the ANS because of preference.
Lightweight! (lighter than Angel 4, and really close to the Lasoya Timmy)
Must have Nitro to shoot, and a powerfeed hopper (Egg II). Other than that, nothing.
This BKO is a perfect beginner OR advanced tournament entry level gun. It's extremely lightweight. The only two guns that are lighter is the 2003 Shocker and the New Timmies. It is amazingly fast. Some say that BKO's max at at 10 bps. This is not true. Even the early defect models of the BKO shot 14.9 bps. With a Chaos chip, you can rip as fast or faster than any other Impulse. With a BKO you can own the field.
To be honest, the only flaw in the initial set ups and designs of the BKO's are that they MUST run on Nitro and must have a powerfeed hopper such as an Evolution II. You can get a Palmer's Reg ($90-$100) to run C02 on, but you void the lifetime warranty if you do.
I used to own an Angel and an Impulse at the same time but had to sell both for a car. I am really surprised with the outstanding performance the BKO gives. ICD has outdone Smart Parts in price and weight of the gun, and matches the "legendary" Impulse in speed. With my BKO I can dominate the field just as easily if not easier than with my Impulse. I highly reccomend the gun for the price. However if you intend to be playing in tournments indefinately for a planned long period of time. Save for an Angel. After all 'BKO's are the cheap man's Angel', and they perform just as well. I rate this gun 10 out of 10.
10 out of 10
