Review: I had the chance to use the only 2k3 Shocker with an eye that is outside of Adams office. This gun is super small and super light. My Halo HAS to weigh more than this thing, its so compact and comfortable. The trigger isn't too bad, the one on this wasn't adjusted yet, and you could still rip paint easily, I just can't wait to see how it'll do with a softened trigger. The pressure is pretty low on this, but with the eye, theres absolutely no worries, I outran the Egg 2 on it but no problems. The accurcy is excellent to, close to the best that i've saw. Another great thing is how you can just push the button and rock once its all set up at first.
Conclusion: Definately a great gun, I recommend this to anyone looking for something compact and light. This will probably be pretty cheap once they're out for a while. Definately gonna be one of the best for your buck. Check it out, the talk was all worth it.

Ive Shot many guns
Marker Setup: 2k2 Vert cocker in black with, 14" AA front SS back Freak kit, Tinkler reg, STO Ram, E-Blade, WGP Orracle delron bolt, Kapp twisted cocking rod, shock tech beaver tail, macroline, and 2k2 68 4500 Max Flow.
Strengths: This gun is light, looks good and it rips.
Weaknesses: Gas efficiency
Review: I tried this gun for the first time at Panther paintballs Summer Heat. I was amazed of how light this thing was. The trigger is a 4 way adjusting trigger so you can make this thing just humm. This gun gives you the accuracy and the speed, cant beat that.
Conclusion: I personally think that this is one of the best markers out there that has the precision accuracy and speed. All I can say is im gonna start saving

Strengths: very light, it has a very nice trigger, low pressure, and shoots very well.
Weaknesses: none that i noticed.....
Review: I shot this gun up in canada at a tourny. I got to take it out and shoot it with my halo. I had a full hopper and i shot it once aand to my suprise....it was very strait and true. then i started to rip on it and i layed out a solid stream of 60 balls at a pole about 25-30 yards a way and nearly all of the balls were on the pole or darn near it.
Conclusion: from what i saw this gun was.....great. Its easily comparable with any gun on the market, if not superior to all others. if you are in the market for a gun i would seriously recommend looking into the new shocker....i shoot an matrix with all the upgrades and im thinking about buying one of these and amking my matrix my back up....so that should give you the picture.

Well,
I've worked on, and had much expierence with just about every base high end marker, and also have great expierence with many custom and private label high end markers.

Alot of high end guns are fast but they're not very precise shooting. Some are very low pressure but are not the lightest equipment. Some are very precise but don't balance well... The Shocker is perhaps the best combination of all these positive aspects that I have yet expierenced... however, with few exceptions most high end guns do get better shots per CI....
Marker Setup: 2003 Electric Blue Shocker..... #114
Matching 68/4500 Max Flo Tank

2k2 Impulse.... #14659

NDZ Hammer and Ram
NDZ Valve
HSW Hypair Foregrip
SP Mini-Flo LPR
Eclipse Dart Bolt
MaxFlo 68/4500

Well,

Of the upgrades that currently exist for this gun I recommend a Freak barrel even though I think the stock 2-piece All American barrel is exquisite. Also, it's not a bad idea to get a Twister Feedneck... This would prevent you from having to sand or tape your hopper too much.
Strengths: Very Light, Very Fast, VERY Precise, Very Comfortable to hold.
Weaknesses: Not as Gas Efficient as I would prefer. Having an eye would help alot.
Review: I got to play for several days with a 2003 Shocker that I borrowed from Smart Parts themselves during my last Factory trip. Then I received my own personal gun... #114 in Shocker Electric Blue.

Now, I love my old 2k2 Shocker but it lacked two things that I desperately needed... a smaller body (resulting in less weight and the ability to switch hand shoot easier) and better gas efficiency.

The 2003 Shocker is much smaller, but that's obvious. It's also a fairly fast gun and with a properly tuned trigger, I rate it as possibly one of the fastest on the market since the internals can (and has been proven to) cycle at 27 shots per second. I was suprised to hear that the design of the gun had changed to an open bolt design but from the first time I shot it... I realized that the bolt method has nothing to do with precision as this gun shatters the old open bolt/closed bolt arguement.

Also, I found that this gun was very easy switch hand shoot with and the grip is very comfortable despite it's looks.

The only real downsides I have discovered are relatively minor and I'm sure will be fixed in the near future...
-Gas efficiency... about what the old Matrices were. As time comes, I have no doubt we will see bolt kits and chip replacements for the 03 Shocker to improve gas usage. Since the bolt pressure of the 03 Shocker does no effect the gas usuage at all, and is below 60 psi anyways, I do not see the need for any kind of LPR system as the self regulating bolt kit does the job admirably... Efficiency for the gun sits at around 1000 shots off a 68/4500... sometimes I get a little bit better, especially with a good paint/barrel match.
-Lack of Instruction Manual... I'm sure this was just a mistake and a result of SP's rush to get the first batch of the guns on the market... Besides, there is VERY little that the average user needs to do to the marker to keep it in perfect health.

I should point out, that the 03 Shocker does have better gas usuage than the old Shocker but not as good as a properly LPR'd Impulse... I am confident there will be aftermarket or replacement parts to improve the overall gas efficiency of this gun in the very near future.
Conclusion: I definately recommend this marker to anyone who likes light, precise and simple markers.

I rationalize giving this marker a 10, because, despite it's two very minor faults, it still sits ALOT closer to a 10 than it does to a 9. That, and there are many guns I would give a 9 to, and this one is just a bit better... Perhaps, really a 9.6....

I see a genius design that was well-conceived and executed, but, as in most cases, there is room for improvement.

Smart Parts has definately released a bomb-shell with this one.

Review: this gun is amazing, i was so so impressed by the speed and accuracy it has. if you are looking to buy this gun get it right away. This gun is so much better than an angel or intimidator. when i tried this out for the very fist time, i was shocked to see my rate of fire go up. This gun is by far one of the best guns i ever used. this is like the old shocker but better and a different body, Amazing
Conclusion: fast, easy, and a reliable gun. key components in a great tournament gun.i would have gave it a 12
