This gun was good at the beginning..It worked for about 2 games then went downhill from there..The regulator blew up so i had to change it..I couldnt get my reg off at all. I tried vice grips and everything..It didnt budge. Took It Out for a game and i aired it up but it didnt shoot..the psi was right .. and i even turned up the velocity to 100% but had no power.

I bought this gun after a lot of research on the internet, i concluded that this was going to be my gun. I also bought a fast hopper with it, the gun is really quick, so you need a pricy hopper that will keep up with the gun (for the money its worth it, or else you will be chopping balls like crazy). I got it, but i realized it wouldnt work with Co2, it just screwed with the internal system. So I bought N2, its a definate upgrade to add on the BKO for its maximum potential (the tanks can be pricy) but it lasts you much longer than a Co2 tank anyways. So after that, I realized that leaks were happening throughout my gun and the gauge was going crazy (increasing and decreasing and shotting up in great amounts) so i knew it was the reg. I bought a CP reg. similar in size to the BKO reg. but much better. A new regulator is also a definate upgrade. After you have all the equiptment you need, the gun is kick ass. Just remember to look at the weaknesses of the gun and think about the upgrades, not just the strengths. In the end, the upgrades will bite you in the ass if you dont know about them. But I give the BKO a 10, because the upgrades just make your gun a whole hell of a lot better.
I think the BKO is an excellent gun. It cost me more money to upgrade it than to just buy a gun with an ASA Adapter and Drop Forward already on it. But if you do get upgrades, like a new reg, it turns out to be a really great marker.
Indian Creek Bko
Bob long torpedo regulator
Just an empire pack
N2 or compressed air (I didn't have enough money)
Just for comfort a remote and pack
Good accuracy the paintballs almost land on each other
If you drop it just forget it and go buy a new gun
I recommend this gun for your average everyday small game and get a better gun for your tourneys and competitions. Just get a nice loader i tried with a gravity feed it got filled with paintballs good battery required no exceptions good for pranks and looks scary and intimidating haha it mad a kid quit the game just a small fun game nothing huge he had an A-5 and a 98 custom both suck but overall I have to give it an 8.5
I recieved my BKO a few days ago and i am very pleased with it so far. I have only shot 2 tanks of air through it and from this I can say the efficiency is questionable; with the reg set at 200 psi I dry-fired 50-70 times and lost 900psi. This is probably due to it being set up wrong as far as the LPR and reg, so i will repost after i adjust.
The detent works fine from what i can tell, no double feeding. Obviously a pds upgrade would be nice but is not neccessary.As far as my 12v revvy, it will not keep up. Not even close. I suppose a hopper that feeds at least 18bps would be sufficent to feed at the BKO's max mechanical ROF.
The trigger on mine is adjusted to a click alot like the silver bullet was and is comfortable to walk. A lighter switch (25g) would be nice as I would assume you could engage the solenoid with less effort. But again, its not neccessary for all. Also the on/off switch is located in a perfect place and easy to operate if you were wearing gloves. I like the switch as opposed to a button because it is fast and solid and lets you know your marker is safe as soon as you flick it off.
I will post more on the barrel and air effiency among other things when i get a chance to use it on the field.
I would rate this product as a low end electro marker, but in the top of that class. Definetly with stock eyes or PDS it would have been a contender for high end in my book. But remember it 2 years old by now, so at that time and still at this time I praise ICD for thier design.
Electro spyders/ more kick not as fast or light as the BKO
Assortment of timmy's/ similar altho the timmies had eyes and shoot more consistent
47/3000 Air america
New HPR, PDS, fast hopper, clamping feedneck
See the review
See the review
-Fast and easy to rip on (18 bps max)
-Lightweight at only 2.2 lbs
-shoots very smoothly and very little to no kick at all
-not a blender like ppl say (if you follow precautions such as lookin for double feeding and blowback)
-easy to maintain if you know the basics of the marker
-fairly good price 300-400 CDN
-low preasure operation
-good ammount of upgrades for it
-comfortable to hold and rip on
-feedneck is not clamping
-no eyes so you will chop the odd ball
-HPR is very inconsistent about +/- 15 or 20 on hpa
-out of the box there can be minor (altho fixable) problems such as blowback, rollback and double feeding
-have to buy ASA and fittings because it comes with none
I think this marker is great for the price as your getting a solid, fast electro pneumatic marker that will keep up with higher end guns with ease if you drop the extra cash for a fast loader and possible pds and a new HPR.

THE STORY: I purchased a BKO about 3 months ago because my T.E.BISNATCH got semi-fried, and i felt i needed a better, more tournement sutable gun cause I am starting to play at tournements. I got mine for about 270 brand new,(super cheap) off of ebay and it hasn't failed me yet,(-2 times).
THE ADVANTAGE: This marker is extremely cheap and great for what it does. Marker is super fast,( i chopped a crap load and outshot my egg, and with my empire b i havent chopped a ball yet). It is also very accurate, even with the stock barrel,(autococker threads, yaaay). Has very few problems after getting everything fine tuned.
THE DISADVANTAGE: Big problem for some people is that it is a major gas hog,(not for me, I just always get all day air. With my 3000 tank i get inbetween 400 to 500 shots per fill, that means usually 2 short games or 1 really long game. If it bugs you just get a new reg and valve. Fires unaccuratly and chops with cheapo paint,(I'm using a freak with 693 insert and im using Worr Competition,only $40 a case!!!) Grip if your picky and gauge,(neither decrease preformance though).
CONCLUSION: If your beggining to enter a tournement level or are becoming serouise with paintball this is the best and by far cheapest gun around for it's performance. Just Throw a fast hopper, nitro tank, and some good grade balls in and your ready to light up some noobs.
BKO, with CP barrel and Halo B with rip drive
A-5 Hell Cat with Empire 3 peice set
New Barrel ASAP, then you need a hopper to withstand the BPS, Halo or Eggy Work, after about 3 months of use, new reg, Low pressure reg doesn't hold up
Easy to Maintain
The BKO out shoots cheap slow hoppers
When i got my BKO i was using an empire reloader, and every 2 or 3 shots i would brake paint, i didn't know what was going on. So i tried my friends Halo B, it was perfect every shot made it out the barrel. It was great, The difference is HUGE. Just a word of warning, before you think the gun is jank and brakes balls. Try a good hopper like a halo or eggy and you'll notice a HUGE difference.
IT is great, at first i thought there was a problem but the only problem was my hopper. If your looking for a low price HIGH QUALITY fast Paintball gun. This is it. Style, Speed, they have everything you need.
Everything is Stock
A new Barrel Is would be good But not needed.
None i could FInd exept for Stock Barrel
Ordered the Gun waited about a week till delivery.
Feel- Gun felt great, and looks very nice.
Accuracy- Pretty good Stocked(will improve with a Longer Barrel)

This gun really didnt perform the way that i though it would've. I got it out of the box and i was so excited to play with it. The first time i used it it did fullfill my wishes and i was saticefied with the first few games and then it was like the middle of the third game when my air tank was almost gone and it was had 2700 psi in it at the beggining of the day. Then the second time i took it out it happen my selnoid in my reg blew because the piece of crap reg couldnt handle the air pressure. So i had to go out and by a sidewinder (AKA) which cost me a hundred dollars. Then i was out to use it again and then this is when i still got it at first i started chopping balls like crazy because it has no eye and if i wanted an eye it was to small to fit so i would have to send back to ICD and pay 200 bucks to get to install it. Its not worth the money i had to many troubles with this gun. I advise to you if you get this gun to upgrade the valve, barrel, bolt, low pressure tank, and a a new trigger (but to bad they dont make them). The stock trigger is pretty sweet but it doesnt come back fast enough.
I would recomed this gun only if you like to spend a bunch of money on parts when it could all be spent on a better gun like a Impulse Vision. I got one and it is so nice and it is one of the most reliable guns you could ever get.
When I bought this gun, I thought it would some kind of autococker clone. I was horribly wrong. This gun did leak air at first, but i just bought a new hose and it worked perfectly.
The main reson i bought this gun was for my home field's team was having tryouts and all i heard was good things about this gun so i bought it. i made the cut with three other people with Autocockers(Aint that ironic)
