I'll repeat what i said to the other guy:

You're on your own. They're two totally different guns with two totally different feels to them. Both are nice, but I had a cocker before my impulse, and i prefer the impulse.

great but why is the impulse better. Listen, i'm looking for a gun with no kick-back, a front-mans gun, light, accurate, something that isn't too much maintenance. PLEASE HELP

That's why the Impulse is better. It's because he likes it better. Some people like Cockers better. We don't know what you like. Since this is your gun I would assume you would want something that you like the most. Truthfully you can't really compare an Imp to a Cocker, they are both good guns. Get the one you like the most. Shoot both and decide. If you can't shoot both and don't know which to buy try picking from a hat.

If you want gun vs. gun comparisons, do a search.

You literally have to go out and try both guns. It isn't hard and belive you me, buying either gun and then not liking it because of the feel, but bought it because someone on a forum said so would suck.

true true. i understand what you guys mean, maybe if i gave some boundaries it would help.

-Front-Man's Gun
-Less Maintenance
-Less Upgrades out of the box
-NOT HEAVY!!!!MOST ACCURATE!!!!
-Tournament Gun

I can't try out the guns, the store wont let me, and for me to find people with those guns will be hard.

if you can't shoot the guns then just read about both guns and try to decide if one gun has what you want more than the other.

That doesn't help. Both guns fit into those categories.

Angry

Then answer me this. The Impulse has something called FSDO(first shot drop off). Does this only happen on my first shot? Like lets say i'm shooting at someone, i stop for 30 secs., and start to shoot again, will i get that again or is it just my first shot after screwing in my tank.

thanks guys

It will happen on the first few shots and then after those shoot at a normal velocity. It happens if you pause a long time between shots. I'm not sure exactly how much time you need to wait in between shots to get considerable dropoff. It will be a little different on each gun and with a LPR or tapeworm you can fix the problem.

If you are looking to buy an Impulse look at a Bushy too. They are both similar guns but with different feels. It costs a little more but it's a little better out of the box.

ok, sounds good, thanks a lot. I was looking into ICD's but my pro shop doesn't sell them for some reason. I was looking at the bko and stuff. If i had to chose between BKO, Impulse or Cocker 2k4

IT BE THE BKO.

But i'm down to these two, thanks. If anyone can tell me if they know more about this fsdo on the impulse

True but my parents aren't into this while "credit card" online.

I was wondering, is a cocker really that high of maintenance??

and if an impulse has a kick-back as you shoot?

thanks-frontman zeus

They both have little kick and the Cocker isn't much maintenance.

what you have to look at are the pros and cons of both guns it should help your desicion, but first ask yourself these questions:
1- Do i need a fast shooting marker?
2- How much will upgrades cost?
3- How much can I spend on a marker?
4- What upgrades will i need?

Impulse roughly $525(non-vision) Cocker roughly $425
$625(with vision)
Reasearch both and make a pros/cons list. Then hold and feel the physical differences (ie. one may be lighter, heavier smaller etc.) then go to the reviews and read every one. After all that is done your mind will be made up!!!

$525? Sounds a little steep. Even at the smart parts site a non-vision is $450, vision $600.

THANKS A LOT -new storm

those are some pretty good questions i should start asking myself. I"VE COME TO A DECISION

I believe the gun best out of the box is the Cocker.
I am going to buy the cocker for the following:

-it's lighter
-less expensive
-ITS A COCKER
-Less money to spend to bring it up to a tournament gun.
-smaller (i'm a front, so less hopper shots)

that's about it. If any of you out there wanna give me your opinion please do.

MAYBE YOU CAN CHANGE MY MIND.

thanks again

Both of my friends that bought new cockers constantly want to use my impulse. They are two different feels and both don't like the autococker. I personally don't like it either but it's still a good marker. BTW the impulse was 400$ american when I bought it.

do they want to play with your impulse because they like the look? the feel?

i want a gun that feels good, shoots accurately, and that doesn't need 200$ worth of upgrades to make it a tournament ready gun.

where i live the impulse is 600$ and the 2k4 is 500$.

for the impulse i need a drop forward-40$, tape worm-40$ and barrel 110$ (all american), blade trigger 35$

for ocker i need drop forward-40$, and barrel 110$ ( all american)

Impulse=825$ plus my member discount
Cocker=650$ plus member discount

see wut im seeing
