The Bushmaster series comes standard with the most capabilities at the flick of a switch. (inside the grip) Go from semi-auto (single shot), 3 shot or 6 shot burst. It even does full-auto!. There are four separate modes to choose from. Semi Auto, 3 shot, 6 shot burst or full-auto modes stops when the trigger is released, allowing single shot firing in any mode. The on board R.O.F. is programmable through dip-switch configurations laid out in the manual. No variable pots to keep you guessing. Rate selection will give you 4 - 13 cycles per second.
The Indian Creek Designs Bushmaster B2K2 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Great gun. Evry1 except for 1 person I know who has an angel has huge problems. One of them actually regrets selling his bushy to buy the angel. The bottom line is that its one of the nicest guns that is very easy to clean up for a low price. My whole set up cost less than the angel my friend has.( that is including everything that means mask harness and the other stuff)
B2K, freak system, kapp cradle, black ice reg., 12 volt revy, 68/3000
the first thing you need to get is a new barrel, new reg, and new grips
i think this gun can keep up with any of the guns above. i play with alot of good guy s and i can throw just as much paint as they can, i like this gun more than the angel because i think it feels alot better to play with. the trigger is awsome, and some review say this gun has kick but a new reg will fix that. i have never chopped a ball with this gun. very easy to feild strip
the reg some times leaks if the pressure is to high but easy to fix. and the light on the side sucks its to bright
great gun i love mine. i wouldnt trade it for an angel
if any on has a nitro tank they want to get rid of e-mail me at email@example.com
I borrowed someone elses gun. It had a Freak, 68 ACI bulldogg with a vigilante reg. Huge arse dropforward
Probably a lighter more high volume bolt and the LPR down
Shoots very fast. Very Very Very fast. I believe that it shot faster than an angel in some cases. I didn't shoot it faster, it shot itself. The trigger was so damn twitchy that the amount of recoil it has makes your finger brush against the side of the trigger and rip off about 8 more shots. The trigger was so low I could drum on the side of the trigger with my first three fingers and it would rip out all of the shots. Also its accuracy was all right considering it had a freak on it.
It kicks. I myself don't like guns that kick, or at least I am not used to them. I play primarily with my micro mag and its kick is far less than that of this gun. However at times the kick coupled with the ultra short trigger ripped off fast strings of paint even when I didn't want it to. And yes you need a revvy and yes you need a pack unless you go very conservatively. Also it is very tall and top heavy which makes snap shooting feel very awkward.
If you are looking for a gun with the trigger of an angel then you have it. If you can get past its ugly looks and topheaviness then you will like this gun. It also doesn't seem as accurate as my old cocker or even my mag. I give it an eight because it has an ultra short trigger but thats about it.
impulse shocker angel cocker. the impulse, is in the same category as it, but it doesnt compare. the shocker is nothing to sneeze at either, its "long distance" said to have isnt tru, my bushy goes the same distance. its just a paintball myth. angels are also nonsense, they r good guns, but too much money for them, its much more worth it to buy a bushy than an angel, even though angels are good. cockers dont compare in the speed as the rest, because its non-electric, but its a great gun none the less.
definately dye stickies, thats it, the barrel IS NOT as bad as ppl say. yes, its not as good as my two piece, but i held off on getting a barrel cuz i found i could actually live with the stock barrel. dont listen to those paintball myths, yes, the barrel isnt AS good, but its still good.
i really like the looks, its small size, even though its tall, its still very small in comparison to most guns. before even firing it, its simplicity impressed me, there isnt much to the gun. thats a major plus. gassing it up is a sinch, and i dialed in the reg to where it was shooting good. ive read all this about the regs sucking on bushys, and leaking probs. i have not had that problem. everything has werked straight out of the box. the first few games with it i used the stock barrel, and yes, it didnt shoot ball on top of ball, but the gun is so fast, who cares, if u cant hit them with one shot, just shoot 8. it wasnt meant for those dead on shots. but with a new barrel, dead on shots is possible, even though the gun still excels at spraying. something came as a surprise to me, and thats all the modes the gun comes with. in all the advertisements i never read nething bout it having turbo, zip, auto response along with 2/3/6 shot burst and full auto. even though it isnt practical, its great fun for playing in backyards. overall, the gun has impressed me, its cheaper than most high end electros, and running it stock aint bad, it can still compete.
bad? yes sure, i could b*tch bout the grips, or the barrel. but why? everyone else does it just cuz they need somethign to b*tch about. well ive got nothing to complain bout, this gun is great, upgrades made to it are more personal preference than actual performance improving. too many ppl r stuck on those paintball myths. like the whole open vs closed bolt, thats nonsense. and ppl complaining bout mediocre grips and a non-aftermarket barrel is just pathetic. ppl should look at all the great things bout the gun, instead of finding lil nit-pick things.
this gun is great in every way, for the low price you pay, u get everything that u paid for. it may not be the prittiest gun, but sheesh the sport has taken a horrible twist into contradicting egos, why cant we all just go play instead of competing with our equipment? i just like playing...

The bushmaster is a very well built marker. Its vertical feed I think is one of the best parts of the gun. It is very easy to take apart and once you get to know the gun the internal parts aren't that complicated. The dip switches are very easy to access and to use. the bolt is very easy to take out and clean. But after about a month of working on it and buying aftermarket parts it was a badass gun. The 2 way sdjustable trigger pull is also a great feature.
BUT NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS IT CAN'T COMPARE TO AN ANGEL
(I am comparing this gun to pro standards) THE BARREL SUCKS.you might have 3 shots that go in the same place at once if your lucky. the grips suck just as much as the barrel. I bought sticky grips the same time I bought the gun. The regulator is a b!t(h as well. It starts leaking pressure when you pressure is to much. I don't shoot hot but when I am sdjusting the velocity and it starts leaking it really pi$$es me off.( the next part of this article may or may not apply becaust I bought my marker from 888 paintball and shortly after I bought it I met a guy who use to work for them and told me that ALOT OF TIMES 888 paintball sells stuff that has a factory defect or has been damages or returned so next time you want to buy something find someone who knows what they are talking about. You may pay a bit more but it is better than getting something that is broke) The pressure guage leakes, I had to put a ton of teflon tape on the threds to keep it from leaking. The selinoid sometimes won't work which means the gun won't shoot but there is a little switch under it and I have to push it every now and them to get it to work.
Once you spend time with the gun and learn the gun and put a few extra hours and dollars It is a great gun. but right off the line it kinda isn't all that great
Indian Creek Designs Bushmaster (B2K)
Pure Energy 68 cu 3000 psi nitro tank
12v revvie with X-board
New barrel and Dye Stickies
This gun shoots amazingly fast, and can almost keep up with an Angel. Its really accurate, and the ball carries for a good distance at the same level (easier to hit people from far, even if you play front). I've only popped one ball so far, but that was when I was testing out full auto without a revvie. It has the best modes ever. Its definately worth the price.
The trigger has screws in it to make it shoot, and they sometimes come out a little so the gun doesn't shoot. This can be fixed in less than a minute in game, though.
Autococker 4th Marker - Similar, but bushy is more reliable better ROF and more compact but most of all its alot more reliable (my cocker broke all the time)
Spyder 3rd Marker - It's so much better than my ol' TL
Stingray 2nd Marker - Isn't worth comparing
Talon 1st Marker - Isn't worth comparing
B2K2 blue with LCD
Drop zone II -A must with nitro
48 ci crossfire tank 3000 psi, i'm upgrading soon
Blade trigger (havent put on yet, but soon will)
12volt revvy( another must)
DYE stickies(great upgrade)
Black Ice Regulator(the very best regulator for a bushy, I promise)
Smart Parts Progressive( I paid 20 bucks for it used and it's great)
Everything listed above, my gun shoots great, cycles great, the regulator kills all the "kick" Shoots fast, doesnt' chop. My setup is so good, not to be bragging or anything :)
Great product, I don't regret buying mine atoll, its light, compact.high ROF, low pressure,cycles great,8 firing modes,comparable with an angle :)
What else do you want in a gun?
1 minor thing, the anodizing was a little messed up in a fun small spots, nothing big
I would say, get a new barrel and your set, maybe adjust the trigger a bit.
Everything is good! the milling is nice compared to the older styles also the light weight of the bushmaster and the thin and compact design.The price is GREAT too.
Nothing really, I would just say the barrel but I love the bushy
I would tell anyone who is thinking about switching over to an electro to get the Bushmaster, it is affordable,durable,easy to clean,shoots nice (12.9bps),and that it has a nice warrenty from the factory.I gave it a 10 it was worth every penny!
