The BushMaster 2000 comes standard with the most capabilities at the flick of a switch. There are four separate
modes to choose from. Go from semi-auto (single shot), 3 shot burst, 6 shot burst, or full auto by flipping a switch
inside the grip. Each of the 3, 6, or full-auto modes stops when the trigger is released, allowing single shot firing in any
The Indian Creek Designs Bushmaster 2000 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

you get tha pic.....
well, the only "major" problems i have had were"
once you add tha chaos, halo b, sonic detents (to hold up with tha halo) and a nice trigger setting... this marker far surpasses all others in it's "class" i also recommend a quality barrle kit and i nice bolt (supafly will have to be sanded down)
now down to tha real review...
insanely fast... faster than any angel (i hate the angel trigger... not enough respose for me...and too slow...) lighter than most other markers... the shocktech bushy is the lightest electro-pneumatic marker out there, accurate once you add tha barrel kit, but mine was shootin beams completely stock (before the chip and all...)
i am front player, so the ability to have a nice small/light/insanely intimidating and fast setup is all i need to wreak havok...push tha 50 while layin down paint tends to cause a bit of disturbance...
overall the best marker i have ever shot (and that is alot....i only listed the ones tha operate in a similar fassion)
Full VaporWorks, Egg, Freak, Sidewinder HPR, Palmer Rock LPR, Zenetram Trigger Frame, PDS (eyes), Crossfire 68/3000 w/ on-off, Low-Rise Neck.
Regulator(s), Barrel, Eyes, Trigger work (minimum, in that order)
It's light, compact, easy to clean, & paint flies straight and far. Good price.
It's tall, a gas guzzler, slow ROF, & the wiring harness has no connectors.
With all of the upgrades, this marker rips. I use it in the local tourneys, and seem to hold my own. I sent it back to ICD for the PDS and Board upgrade, and was VERY pleased with how fast they got it back to me, and the improved performance. It cost $125, and only took two weeks. WOW, no more chopped balls! This by far the best performance upgrade I made regarding BPS speed. Obviously, you need a fast loader and an accurate barrel as well.
Overall, I highly recommend this marker as long as you know that there are minimal upgrades that need to be made. I bought mine used with a full VaporWorks upgrade. I love what they do to the air system, but hated the Vapor trigger. They also add a connector between the tray, and receiver. I got mine for about $450, but I've seen them on E-Bay for less with more upgrades. If you're thinking about getting a Bushy, look for the upgrades, and what you're getting for the price. They make them with AutoCocker barrel threading as well, and that is a big plus. ICD after market parts can be kind of hard to find. Search the web, ask around in chat rooms, find a retailer that deals with, and is familiar with ICD. I gave this product an 8 out of 10, because there are minimal upgrades that should be made. Good luck, and see you on the field!
barrel, grips, new reg, ive heard the chaos chip is good, i should have one in a little. definetly need a revy,
incredibly fast, great looks, has a certain, indimidation factor
kind of hard to find parts for it
this is a very good marker, i highly recomend it to anyone that is getting serious with paintball. high rates of fire, and with a new chip you can get up to 20bps, thats crazy. i have heard that the stock reg is crap, but i got mine with a new one so i dont personally know. i got mine with the setup you see above for 220, dont expect to get that good of a deal though. overal awsome gun, not quite up their with an angel yet, but im sure with a new chip, and trig frame itl b just as good, if not better. BUY THIS GUN
overal awsome gun, not quite up their with an angel yet, but im sure with a new chip, and trig frame itl b just as good, if not better. BUY THIS GUN
Smart Parts Impulse: Heavier and more expensive, but a little faster. Almost the same.
Spyder E99: A little fast, but doesn't compete with the bushmaster b2k
E-Blade Orr-acle: Wayy faster and more accurate...but really expensive
Shocktech Supafly bolt
Dye sticky grips
14' Dye Ultralite barrel
7 inch Drop foward
New barrel, Chaos board ( I am definatly gonna buy that soon), fast hopper, drop foward, and a new bolt (not needed that much but it really helps)
can be fast, very light, and dead on accurate with a new barrel and bolt
not the fastest all the time, but thats really it
Its a good gun. It is very light and if you put time and money into it, it can be very fast. It is very accurate and if you buy a bolt and a barrel, it will be amazingliy accurate. Try it out if your interested or try out a newer model.
Buy it if you are interested. It wont let you down.
Indian Creek Designs(ICD)2000
SmartParts 14'' All American '02 Barrel
-Consistent of air
Probably the barrel. Change the stock barrel.
Well, in my opion, this marker ROX! The only major change that is needed is the barrel. The stock barrel curves the balls as I shoot, but sometimes it will shoot straight.Yeah, just change the barrel then your set. Unless you want to really get tricked out get get bla, bla, bla..........
Overall, I would reccomend this marker to anyone likes and wants to win. I give it a 9 cause of its stock barrel. Its not that bad but, you know...

LED angel has similar performance but, much better fee;
it isn't as good as newer elecros
Black ICD 2k3 Bushmaster BKO
12" Lapco bigshot
32 degress 42" steel remote
VL eVLution II
BE Tigershark with 9.5" eagle works barrel
BE Blade 1 with tape holding it together
WGP Sniper 2k3/WGP Autococker 2k3-
stock reg from a pre 2k cocker
shochtech bomb 3-way
lapco bigshot 14"
gas thru stock
well, I'd just save my money and buy a newer bushmaster, these things are good stock
fast rof, can run on co2 if you are daring enough
most uncomfortable gun in the world, ever!
this gun is definitly decent. perforamence wise you can't hope for too much better at the price these can be had for, frequently people sell them as cheap as BKOs which aren't quite as good b/c they are almost unupgradable. the B2K has many upgrade components. it is alot heavier than my BKO and about the same as my cocker. the bad thing is it happens to be the most unconfortable thing ever designed!!! I cannot fathom why this design was built so tight to the gripframe, I am not a big person but the grip is far,far too small to ever be comfratible.
if you find one cheap they are very good guns, the grip sucks but the rof is what is important to most players anyway. all in all I'd rather try to find a used LED angel, they are found for just as good prices and are better guns
tl+(doesn't even compare)
i owned all of these and finally stuck with a b2k
88/3000 pure energy hpa
evo II hopper
probably a new barrel
if you use co2, get rid of it and switch to hpa
did i say fast?
chops sometimes because i don't have pds and i shoot too fast
i love this gun. i actually traded an eblade autococker for it!(of course i got money back) it is sooooo fast and if you get the chaos chip for it it will do 26bps. really lives up to its nickname "poor man's angel"
it's amazing. the only thing wrong with it is that if you don't have pds (paint detection system) it might chop because your hopper can't keep up with how fast you shoot. if you do chop tho don't worry it is a sinch to clean. the only other thing wrong with it is that paint might get expensive because this thing really lays it down.
WARNING: may cause severe trigger happy behavior. :P
buy this gun. screw the angel or timmy and save about $400 and get this gun. this gun really rips!!

Bushmaster 2000 (2002)
Halo B, ACI BULLDOG 3 47CI 3000PSI tank (soon to be chaos chip)
I reccomend a Halo B because it will leave you with no gaps also if you get chaos it will be the only loader that can keep up bsides evo 2 Nirtro because c02 will freeae the internallls
good stock regulators (if set right +5-5)
Stcok grips ok thats it
I beleive that this gun is an exellent choice. This gun fires at 13 BPS and if you get a chaos chip it will fire at a amazing 20 BPS. The later 2003 versions are capped at 33.3 BPS well my bshmaster is LIGHT also it has good stock regullators not only that but the stock barrel is accurate and the trigger is just beutiful light and fully adjustale. Even the spring on 2002 versions! But be sure to get a HALO B or Evoloution 2!
I beleive this product is great it's all good and theres nothing wrong with it buy this product!
ANS GENx2 Reg
Vapor FMD/COCKER LPR
Choas Chip (For those that feel the need for speed)
Best Bang for the buck, if you don't want to spend mucho $$
Needs new vavle or its a gas hog
I have both a Defiant and a Bushmaster, both are great guns, and both work excellent. If you want speed then you must buy an upgrade chip, I suggest a choas chip you can get these from www.vaporworks.net. The valve iself needs to be changed our you won't get as many shots per tank that you should. I'd get a HPR regulator, a barrel, and a vapor valve first. Then if you need speed, a choas chip. After all this, you should be shooting +-2-6 and easily laying strings of paint.
Its a great product, it would be even better if it had everytthing it needed to be great stock. I say its great, but it needs some money put into it to make it at par with an angel or maxtrix, but hell its way cheaper.

BKO- only tested
Electro Spyders and Varios Electro Clones, mainly my M3 black dragun
Red B2K, 4th or 5th gen. (fishbone milling)
2K3 stock reg (is much more consistent than the original)
Smart Parts adjustable feed neck- red
Dye sticky grips-black
Aci Bulldog 2 68/4500 air system
I would definately recommend a fast motorized loader, such as an egg, halo, or x-board revy
A new regulator is a must, the stock one is not very consistent, the field i purchased mine from got the 2K3 reg. when another bushy owner purchased a torpedo reg, and this one works really well, and it is easier to adjust the velocity
the stock bolt, 'course, is made of delron, which makes for minimal maintenance
have to use N2 (not necessarily a bad thing)
This marker was ready to go, right out of the box, and is used the world over by the pros, it has earned the nickname "the poorman's angel" well, from what i've seen, the angel is bigger(pysically),heavier, has a larger rep, pricetag, and an advanced trigger assembly. The bushy is lighter, quieter, and in my opinion, better, honestly, now adays, who needs all of the fancy stuff, and if you want it that bad, get a chaos chip or tantrum chip! if ya want an LCD screen, get the 2K2, it comes with it, or the shocktech bushy! want a PDS? get a 2K3 or shocktech bushy which come with them pre-installed, or add it later! total it all up, and you have saved 200-500 dollars! This marker is the one to get, regardless of skill or rank, i guarantee that you will love it
this marker is great for players of all age, size, and rank, i believe i explained why it is better, in some ways, than an angel
