The Bushmaster series of guns was designed with preformance in mind. Computer controls put the player in control of the gun, and most of the markers settings can be changed with the flip of a swtich. With the PDS (paintball detection system), you can shoot your marker with confidence knowing the computer is there to stop you from chopping and slicing a ball. Aren't computers great?
Low pressure (225 - 275 psi)
Secondary regulator for precise velocity control
Machined from solid, aircraft grade aluminum
Hard anodized to military specifications
Powered by a 9 volt battery
No-tool field stripping
Uses Autococker threaded barrels
PDS (paintball detection system) eliminates chops
The Indian Creek Designs Bushmaster B2K PDS is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Good air efficiency
A bit tightly packed
So far, I've taken this gun out only for a few games, but it has served me greatly during these rounds. This easily blew my old Spyder out of the water performance-wise, and with the right hopper, it kept up with every trigger pull I made, while never making a single chop. The eyes work wonders, and although the stock board is limited to semi-auto, I can safely say that with this trigger, you can shoot fast enough to make up for any losses of modes.
A new regulator will work wonders in air efficiency, and coupled with a good barrel and feedneck, this gun is a powerhouse.
I give this gun all and any personal endorsement I can bestow upon it, so its a wonderful gun, although its harder to find probably now.
Barrel (Freak or Ultralite)
Board (Nox or Chaos)
Price (got mine for $120)
This gun is amazing. I bought mine for $120 and it keeps up with my friends $1200 ego. When this gun is upgraded to its maximum potential its practically unstoppable. The only problem is when you get the gun stock its not so great. The stock board is kinda slow and the high pressure reg is horrible. Also the wires inside the frame are very fragile and the break very easy if your not careful. I have a all black b2k4 w/o PDS and it chops like crazy, even with my DXS pulse on it. With the PDS there is no chops so i dont have to worry about cleaning a thing out on the field. I bought this over an ion because ions are so common, almost everybody at my field has one and i wanted to be different. So I bought the B2K4 and it is much better than any ion in my opinion.
Nothings perfect i would give it a 9.5/10 with all the upgrades, stock its about a 6.5 or 7. But for $120 it is very well made and I consider it a steal.
ICD B2k4 w/ pds
CP Long Reg
Zenitram 15* ASA w/ SP 300 psi gauge
CP Direct Mount
ICD Clamping Feedneck
Proto/Dye Combo barrel 14'' ultralite front / proto back
New Reg, New detents, fast loaded, new valve, internal mods
Weak stock reg
Right out of the box, I knew I'd love this gun to death. The looks are excellent. I love the sound of it, it's a beast. The stock trigger pull was ok, but it left alot of room for adjustment. My pull is less than a mouse click, and thats on a 250 dollar gun. The microswitch is really good, picks up every shot. I personally think the stock barrel is accurate. It could use some improvement, but not much. The stock regulator, though, spikes on about 2 of every 3 guns, so i'd suggest getting a new reg for it, maybe a cp, but i would say a 2 litre for best efficency. Thats again an issue, i get about 900 shots with 3000, around 1400 with a full 4500, but thats after the new reg.
Best gun for 250 out. Will blow ions out of the water, i can easily out-shoot them at my field. This is like a timmy in a less expensive package, and can be easily upgraded to compete with the big boys.

Nothing really similar but have used a Spyder Imagine and various others.
2004 ICD B2k w/PDS Red to Black fade
Halo B w/Rip Drive
Crossfire 68ci/3000psi fiber-wrapped tank
CP regulator long/no gauge port
CP flame drop forward
CP on/off ASA
32* macro line kit
05 Dye Rhino Cover
Redz 2.2 pod pack w/comfort belt
Barrel of course
Regulator, at least HPR, my LPR is working fine but I love after marker parts and will probably replace that
bolt, if you get blowback
Cheap "high-end" marker
good out of the box, not great
stock trigger is nice
No bottom line kit
Stock reg is horrible
Feedneck keeps coming loose, Very annoying
I got this gun as an upgrade to my spyder. Out of the box this thing has no macroline kit and the feedneck is tight on my halo and comes loose when I try to get it out. When I took it out of the box tried shooting it at my house and the reg was leaking and wasn't very consistant. Easy fix..... buy a new one. So I bought the new reg and completely hook this thing up. First impressions was this thing ripped, shot fast and accurate. So I take it out to my local feild, went to chrono and it was ALL OVER THE PLACE. 284, 191, 203, 240.....now I was getting mad but figured I would play with it and see what it did. First game my shots were everywhere and it had horrid drop off. So I was still mad untill the 2nd game of the day, than I became impressed. This thing was shooting darts, hard and on target as fast as I could pump them out with no chops at all. Went to the chorno 294,293,293,293,294. So I played the rest of the day, I kept getting compliments about how nice my marker looked and performed. I was really happy with my decision.
This is a quality gun for a good price I bought minefor 289 and probably spent about 100 bucks out of the box with this thing on upgrades. Once it was broke in it was a dream. You won't get timmy speed or anything like that out of this but it really is a tourny ready gun with very few adjustments and upgrades. I highly recommend this gun to anyone looking to upgrade. I would give a 9.3 based on my own personal system but since nothing is a 10 I will give it a 9.

tippman 98 (first gun), warped lvl10ed classic mag(second gun, slow... not a good comariso), SP ion (brothers- a bit worse than the b2k4 stock- crappy trigger, reg, feedneck etc, but very good fast reliable gun in the long run)
black b2k4 w/ PDS
SP freak junior kit
evil detonator HPR
cp red macroline
HP crossfire 68/45 fiber wrapped
vapor valve (or similar)
halo or egg....new feedneck for sure
HP crossfire preset tank
look and feel-
all in the eye of the beholder, but i think it looks great, although it is a bit tall. It is also a bit heavier than my brothers impulse, but nothing unbearable that's for sure. I got all black, and the anno is very nice, and doesn't have that purple kind of tint (you know what i mean?)
very fast, very adjustable, light.... its perfect :)
ease of use-
it has two switches, one for pds, and one for the on off, i LOVE this, because you always know for sure what settings you have on, and you don't have to rely on a dim lcd to know if your gun is on or not, just flick the switch down.
eek... BE CAREFUL, when you take off the grip frame. i knew that the wiring was weak, so i took it off really carefully, and still ripped out the pds wire from the switch. its a tiny little switch making for a hard sauder.
terrible efficiency.. honestly, i shot just air for maybe a hundred shots, and my 68/45 HP tank dropped 1000 psi.. but i hear the vapor valve is an easy upgrade for that
im sure this appys to only me... but now when i air the gun up, i can hear a leak from the feedneck, very small, but sputtering. i looked in the manual, and it recomends a new cupseal in the valve... but when i tryed opening it up to get to the valve (being a noob with bushys) i ripped out the pds wiring... i gave up there and put the grip frame back on... oh well..
completely awful -- it doesnt have a parts diagram or anything. It says nothing at all about field stripping, making it a bit tough, if you look on the icd forum on pbnation.com there are people that really know there stuff, and im pretty sure there are stickys explaining the whole process.. i havent really looked though...

Ok this gun in my eyes is a bad mistake.. i have nothing wrong with indian creek i love there guns i really like the freestyle fs-7 great gun .. OK there is alot of things wrong witht his gun for 1 is the trigger way to hard to pull even with it ajusted really light. 2 the reg its not good at all it is very unconsistant. 3 the feed neck doesnt fit any hoppers its way to big. 4 the barrel it looks cool but donesnt have the performace that is needed .
I think this gun is garbage i would not tell anyone to get it. i would get the freestyle fs-7 or the ion 3000 great guns i love them
IM not being biest i love indian creek guns but not at all the b2k guns there really bad way to big and perfomace is unbarbly horrible . over all i give it a 4 dont like it but i do like other inidan creek guns and yes big is a prefrace i understand but i think its a probly for most poeple so get the ion 3000 first or the freestly fs-7

BLUE B2K3 w/ PDS
Soon To Be Vaporized
Nothing really except for the grips but they work
Accurate, Low Pressure out of the box, FAST AS HELL!
Not as accurate as my cocker but damn close!
This thing Rips.
You need a fast loader but go find a black egg 2 for 50 bux and ur set. This is probibly the best gun i have ever owned over all. Oh ya and did i say that this RIPS. I like that they took out the other modes out of this gun because lot of people were getting away with playin with full auto at like 10 bps.
crossfire 68/3000 carbon fiber tank
CP REG AND A BARELL!!!
Fast and accurate. if its not broken =]
Its heavy and a gas hog.
kk, so i got the bushie about a year ago for like 330 bucks. now its worth about 150. HORRIBLE RETAIL VALUE so if u git one, dont plan on selling it. it has very tight grouping and is realy accurate but a little hard on paint, oh and by the way, ur gonna be broke by the end of the day cuz of teh speed of this thing.
i just played with it at the indoor field in the corvallis sports park and it is realy fast, but it has HORRIBLE consistancy......
it was like +-14fps.... ya (its difrent everytime i play >_<)
anyways, ud be better off getting sompthing like a smart parts ion
it has been a great gun in its days but it just dosent compeat anymore (im getting a proto matrix 06)
OMFG!! this pile just broke down on me for like the fourth time!!! it keeps blowing solenoids and crap and i just dont give a SHI*!! its so anoying and if your smart, you wont evean think about getting this gun ( i dont care if u think it is a defect, iv talked to tons of ppl with theese piles of crap and everyone said they suck as bad as mine)
lawl, i sent it to 1 of my homeez that owns a store and stuff, and it got stolen and he payd me 200 store creds and 200 cash =]
its accruate, fast and a gas hog
oh ya, icd SUCKS AT FIXING STUFF, i sent it in like 4 times and they never got it fixed and when they did, they put in the wrong screws
so because of the fixing problem, i give it a 7
nevernind.. i change it to a 2 mua haha
its realy a big pile of crap and u should git like an ion or sompthing

Well before i bought this gun i had a spyder rodeo, lol, well that gun was not the greatest, ummmmm it chopped like a mofo unless you have a electric hopper, well pretty much everything about the b2k4 w/pds is better than any spyder.
I have a B2K4 w/ PDS, i have a Trinity Bad Habitz Pro Drop Forward On/Off, and that's all right now ive only had the gun for like a week and a half.
Well i dont recommend any because, i don't have any yet, i plan on getting a new barrel maybe a new reg, but in a long time. Youll definetly need to get a electric hopper. O probably a new bolt too.
Accurate , Eye works perfect haven't busted any balls , Trigger is very light
Balls fall out of the barrel sometimes when you are using shi**y paintballs.
Well i haven't had this gun that long , but it was great right out of the box well after i got it put together, umm ummmm ummm ummmm ummm ummm ummmm it shoots great , very quiet , MAN YOU'LL BE INVISIBLE WITH THIS BIT** !!!! Well ok , ya again its accurate with stock barrel , the trigger is nice and light, and can be adjusted very easily , alot easier than most guns, the adjuster is right inside the trigger, and can be field striped in like 5 seconds to be cleaned. Fast. , ya. The Feed neck is short too, which is good. And looks sweet, ok there's my flippin review bitc**s!!!!!!!!
Ummm if ur thinking about buying this gun, BUY IT , don't hesitate, all the money is worth it. Trust Me!

Mine did great stock but I wanted a little more :) I say get a valve, my stock hpr got +2-2 on good days and claping feedneck is a must.
No kick what so ever up'd
eh I guess weak stock wiring harness.
I love this gun. I am getting around 1800 off a 68/45, sometimes more. i am running my dwell at 8 ms/lpr at 50/hpr at 175. I got rid of all the kick, it shoots really smooth with all my upgrades, my friend said its better than his pm5 now. At the field people are always asking what kind of gun that it, even with the mix ups of people thinking its a impulse :dodgy: A fast hopper is a must, and a new board fi you want to unleash this beast to its full potential.
I really enjoy this gun, I don't know if I will get another gun, and if I do this will be a solid back up to a dm6 or dm7. My b2k4 never broke on me, and when you tune this bad boy perfect mows everything.
