If you are poor, good luck affording this gun!
I had this gun since Christmas and I love it! Since then i try to go at least 3 times a month because it is a pleasure shooting this gun. This gun is very accurate and very fast. I shot an Angel Fly and believe it or not (it may be very very hard to), i love this gun five hundred times better! I would definitley recommend this gun to any player.
Get it! If you are looking for an affordable and all around great gun, buy this one!

03 Rat vision impulse, freak barrel, pmi 72ci 4500psi tank, pulse/evolution2 with z-board hopper.
Full freak system
maybe new feedneck pulse fits perfect but evo2 sways left and right
REALLY REALLY FAST!!! Vision no chops, very low maintenance marker/easy to clean, accurate.
Eats gas, very high profile, loud, somewhat heavy
I purchased this gun back in 03 when they still made them and the impulse was the gun to have. Never had any mechanical problems with it never any major leaks. The trigger on this gun is the most sensitive trigger i have ever felt to date. Easily rip's ropes of paint. It came with a freak barrel so it was always accurate and had very good distance. Efficiency is not so good but it is an older gun so i probably got about 1000 shots out of a 68ci 4500psi tank. The impulse is very tall, rather heavy, really fast, and really reliable.
This is one of my favorite guns to play with. The only difference now, is in this time and age because of how speed ball has change i mainly play woods ball with this gun. I have recently purchased a DM7 for tournaments and speed ball.
gray ra impulse, freak barrel, rat internals, vert maxflo, otb trigger frame, vision board, halo b, ccm no rise feedneck, tapeworm, drop forward and pure energy 68/45 tank
tapeworm to get rid of bolt jams and first shot drop off
Fast gun for a reasonable price
lighter than stock impulse
cool body milling
Uses alot of gas
Could be lighter
Overall this is an excellent gun. It rips right out of the box and no upgrades are really needed but i recomend a vision board and tapeworm. I was overjoyed with it when i played my first game because of it's speed, accuracy and consistancy. The only thing that is a small problem is the bolt jamming. This rerly happens though and can be fixed by buying a tapeworm for 20 bucks.
This is a great gun. It is the least expensive of all pro shop impulses and can have you competing at a tournament level. Buy it now and up your game
Max Flo needs inline on/off, so you dont lose air wit an HPA tank.
This is a very good High-End Electric marker, It is fast, accurate, reliable, Way better then the O3 by Odyssey (peter) JK (no really). Its is worth every penny. An is way to good to be replaced by the new Ion. The Ion is a POS. Rat Impulse All the way! Smart-Parts and the Rat Factory have a winner here.
Good reliable product, the envy of any field worth every penny.

Blue Rat impulse
New style MAx Flow
Murder inc Rail with system X ASA
ND internals and Rat Internals
matching freak barrel
new trigger ( personal prefrence not so important )
First off ive the rat impulse is awesome.
Air Efficent (unlike most guns this baby is air effiecent runs at 125 psi)
Lighter than stock imp weighs in about 2-3 pounds
Trigger moves around easily ( it feels loose) no biggie
There are lighter guns
im being critical nothing really i can think of. sept trigger haha
This gun is great, its air effiecent, fast and reliable. during my course of using this gun i have experienced a few things. trigger slop, and shots skipping
the shots were skipping cuz my 12 volt was to slow. so i bought an egg.
also the trigger its fast and super light with zero bounce. but as i ahve owned it for a while now i feel a magnetic trigger will surely make it the best it can be.
20oz C02 tank
eVlution II loader
14in jnj barrel
Wouldent Know, Only Tested. But get a halo or egg for this
Lighter then the regular Imp
Kind of big
OK i was at my local feild and a guy i know was showing me his A-bomb intimidator. I loved that and then this other guy that ive met before is selling his Rat Impluse and i asked if i could test it out and he said Sure, but would you like to try it in some games. So i took it into a game and holy crap is it fast. I was getting off alot more then i do with my gun. This gun is a really fast marker and i went through all my paint in just 5 games(had 1000left) So if you are in the market for a faster gun get the Rat Impluse.
This is a very nice, light, durable, and fast gun. Get it.

Blue 03 RAT #248
Standard Rat internals (stock housing, slick shot,and brass hammer)
New Design clamping no rise
Obviously Halo and Equalizer
full Freak would be nice
i-FRRAAAMME(kick @ss)FAST :)
New Design clamping no rise also
YOU, if you dont have 1
The 03 Rat is the best marker in my opinion. The freak barrel is nice,The Rat's body is nicer than Pamela Andersons,the curves and cuts are sharp.E-PaintballOutlet has done a great job with the desigh and the choice of parts used. In conclusion the Rat is FAT buy it.
The Rat is where its at.

2003 RAT imp
70 ci stubby crossfire hp tank
Drop 4- in
Equalizer (WAS) board
clamping feed neck
a feak insert to match your paint
Fast, doesnt chop, low kick, accurate
get 750 out of 70/45 ra 130psi
Feed neck is horible
A bit TALL
Guys this is the best gun you can buy for under 700 dollars. Its accurate fast and dosnt chop. The milling is great. When you play everyone wants to now what it is. Without the equilizer eye this gun is pretty fast and dosnt hardly ever chop with good paint. But if you throw in the equilizer this is like a different gun. It is crazy fast and NEVER chops. Though it is a little tall for us front men, it is perfect for backmen. I would recomend getting this gun to all back/mid players. It will keep up with anything. And is more reliable than a matrix. I use a DM3 as my primary gun and this as my backup. Swtching to this gun is no detriment to my game whatso ever. It is not as quite as the dm3 or as low kick but it will definently keep up with it!
Oh yea and Great Customer Service too e-paintball outlet replaced my feedneck for free
For a fast RELIABLE tourney level marker this is your best choice
stock body impulses shockers pretty much anything made by smart parts
2003 black dusted rat strange bolt nd slick shaft rat hole hammer nd rip valve nd front cap tapeworm twister feed nd front cap
new hammer and shaft new valve you dont realy need an lpr on this gun but if you want too it wont hurt
fast!!!! accurate easy to work on
none some people say its to big but it doesnt bother me
i just got this gun about a week ago i ordered it and all the parts to put in it so i got it put it together and got it set up. in case you didnt know an impulse is one of the easiest guns on the market to work on it took me about 15 minutes to replace all the internals and get it set up but i have been playing with imps for about a year and a half now so it might take some longer but it shouldnt take even a newbie but about 45 minutes max but anyways i took it out to the field this weekend and omg this gun rips with my trigger job i was easily maxing out my cricket board and it was putting the balls right on top of each other now ive had imps before like i said but none like this one it just feels so good to play with you need to get one right now especialy considering the price i mean even with all the stuff on mine it still only cost me about $950 which is a lot of money but considering this gun outshoots anything out there i think thats a good price since all the guns even close to this one are well over $1000
