The Shocker SFT is the sport of paintball's first marriage of technologies. The Shocker SFT provides the high rate of fire and simplicity of design found in most open bolt markers yet has the incredible accuracy and razor flat trajectory heralded in closed bolt markers. With rates of fire far capable of surpassing 20 balls per second, the SFT is more than able to excel in any environment without ever letting its user feel outgunned. Its weight and size make it the smallest and lightest tournament dominance package made. Already a proven winner by the Philadelphia Americans, this marker is appearing in the hands of more and more top level teams every day.
The Smart Parts Shocker SFT is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
New feed neck
maybe a virtue board if your gonna go into tourney's
Possibly the lightest gun
Fast as you wallet can take you
Air hog, but that can be solved very easily
So I was at the NPPL in Tampa last year and walked by the smart parts tent. Smart parts is my favorite marker company so of course i had to stop. At the time i was using an Impulse with vision that was customized up the ying yang, but i just didnt like the feel of it no matter what i did with it. It was about time for a new gun, so i there at the tent. I had to choose between This gun and the Dynasty version. I choose the SFT because of the price difference. Although the milling on the Dynasty shocker was beautiful and it ripped like no other.
So i got home with a box of reballs and went flying with this baby. I was extreamly empressed by how easy it was to get this kid flying. And it was the lightest gun i have ever picked up. It was balanced perfectly for me and i just loved looking down the barrel at my target. The shape of the gun while looking down it was what caught my attention first.
The Gun is also Accurate, but at the price of being an air hog. The bolt does a number of motions to keep it accurate and fast but at the cost of more air. But this can be easily fixed by an HE bolt which should be your 2nd upgrade (A new feed neck would be first, trust me, i had my halo crack cus it fell)
That basically narrows it down, any player pro or just a weekend player would love to own this, Light, accurate and fast are the 3 magic words, and smart parts has achieved each with greatness.
Well i wrote this review while on vicadin (painkiller) but i think its very trustworthy. I love this gun and im sure you will to if you buy one.
SP Ion (Cant Compare)
Black Omen 2.0 (Cant Compare)
05 Pewter Vision Shocker
Dye UL w/ All American Front
Highly Recommend HE Bolt
On/Off (CCM Pref.)
CCM Rail *Pref.*
New Board (Dynasty,Blackheart,APE) *I like the Blackheart because the board chrips.*
- Easy to maintain
The gun is not very air effiecient without the upgrade of the HE Bolt.
I picked this gun up from a friend yesterday with over $300 worth of upgrades. I shot some reballs through it and this gun rips, you can shoot ropes with this gun. I decided to buy this gun to start up for the next season CFOA and my friend used it for half of this years season and he said the gun never failed on him. Like I stated in recommeded upgrades is you should get a HE Bolt. Which will drastically increase your air efficiency. I can get about 6-7 pods and whole hopper off 68/4500 and still have about 500-1000 PSI remaining.
Try it and see how you like it. You will not be dissapointed.

Mad Upped Omen
NXT Shocker (i like sft more)
Limited 05 olive vision shocker
stock 2 piece olive freak
SP HE Bolt
Pure energy 45/3000
The only thing id really recommend is a new bolt
Shoots like a dream very fast and very accurate
The only major weakness is its a air hog, bolt upgrade and there you go
This gun is my favorite gun ive used to date and ive played/shot/owned alot of guns throughout my days. Its fast,accurate, quiet, light, cheap for a highend gun, honestly what more can you ask for? if you are thinking about getting a gun thats fits in this price range dont hesitate you truly wont be sorry with your choice.
Great gun, for a great price. Seriously look at dynasty pwn with them haha that could be you.

upgraded board is also recomended
Efficiency(after the upgraded bolt)
Takes a lot of modifications to get its best performance
Alright so when i first got this i was a little skeptical because i was so used to my old iR3, but it was getting a little outdated and beat up so it was time to move on. When i got it i aired it up stock and played for a day and it felt like i was having to refill my tank after every couple of pods. So after my next paycheck i started putting every upgrade i could get on it. Now that im pretty much done upgrading this gun is absolutely sick. Every time i take it to the field it turns heads and can hang with the fastest and most accurate markers on the market.
Buy it, and if you can afford it atleast upgrade the bolt before use
Ion-Even this beats this!
Etek Ego-Far ahead.
Ripper Intimidator-No way a Shocker will come close to this.
I don't really know, it needs a trigger frame with more space in the guard.
Cheap material and anno
I had the chance to test one of these out at my field, and I was dissapointed by it. It's sad that people pay the price they do for these things. At first, it felt nice, it was light and small, plus I see them for cheap now, but there's a reason for that too. I noticed the anno was fading off severly, and it was only an 05'. I've seen many other guns that are way older and don't have any sign of fading on them, and they were regularly used too. Alright, so I went to shoot it, and the first shot just rolled out the barrel, gotta love that FSDO. After that, it shot like 270 FPS, which is good. So I began to shoot and I noticed the trigger was nice and light, but man, it had kick. I have no clue why, but it definitely had kick. It was pretty fast though, but it had terrible shootdown. I was shooting, then I noticed my shots were barely reaching the end of our chrono station, which was like 40 feet away. I gave it back to the guy after that, all I know is, I will never touch another one of these things again. I couldn't comment on accuracy though since our field's paint was pretty bad. It shot fairly straight for the most part though
Smart Parts failed with this gun. A Mini out performs it, so does an Ion. It's made of cheap material, and basically isn't worth the cash that you'd pay for it. I really hope they improved the NXT much more than the SFT model.
evil omen(junk), ions(i like mine better), timmys(id rather have my shocker), dark ego?(that was my fav), probably more.
'05 shocker sft, blackheart board, HE bolt, QEV, freak kit, on/off, halo b, crossfire 45, thats about it.
virtue or blackheart board, HE bolt and QEV, clamping feed neck, good barel like a freak, on off.
Fast, trigger can be great, easy to work on, reliable.
Eats air like crazy, no room for fat fingers.
The gun is super sharp. Its fast, accurate, and cheap to upgrade. The downfall to the gun is that it wastes alot of air. My buddy has a pmr and i would rather have my gun. If you are thinking about minis theyre hand gernades and i would never own one. If you want to mow faces i would recomend this gun. The only gun i really like more than my shocker is my friends ego, but i still light him up every time we play.
If you are looking for a gun that can be wicked this is it. Unlike the ion not everyone has one. Most people either love or hate this gun and i definetly love it.

Hmm nothing really I mean if you find it a problem I guess a Stinger Bolt or Turbocharger to help the efficiency + One fast hopper i got a halo b with victory which is fine
Well i bought this as a new primary gun (keep in mind im 14). I was a little iffy with this gun i was thinking about saving up a little more to get maybe an ego or a Karnivor but i decided to get this. Well I gassed it up and shot i noticed only one thing after I'd say a game i filled my tank again. Not a big problem in my oppinion because i was blown away when a felt no kick. When they say Razor Tradgectory it really doesnt sum it up this gun has maybe a 3 inch spread MAX from across the field its ridiculous. FAST FAST FAST i can easily shoot over 25 bps and even at that speed of fire I still saw only a 3 inch spread. Some people dont like micro switches and thats why people buy timmys well i can say by having used both thoroughly this gun can easily stand up to my friends infamous timmy which again i used thoroughly. The shocker is only a little heavier and a gas hog but are very similar
buy it its worth it even if you buy it used off ebay this gun is reliable dont be fooled you can find it for 400 way better than buying a stupid Invert mini which is total garbage compared to this.
Blue Shocker'06, RAKEjet trigger setup, 2in. forward 2in. drop drop forward and CPtwist lock feed.
Blackheart board(dont have to but its a thought) deffinatly a new triger the trigger will stick.
Accurate rope shooter. lightweight.
Little fat and some parts tend to stick.
This gun is one great gun. I myself have the Shocker'06 and just to say this gun is great. I've compared every smart parts gun out there and this gun blows the others away. Yes the NXT and EPIPHANY are new and better(in ur mind) the real truth is if you take the dwell and set it up a bit and you take the nxt and epiphany off standard PSP setup you get the Shocker will win. Any kinda race. Its an easy fun gun to mess with but ya know if you take this sport seriously you better get ur gear right!
make SURE!!! you have:
new barrel(stock is a little choppy)
(for frontmen)a good drop forward
and most of all!!!
CLEAN EVERYTHING AS SOON AS YOU GET IT!! DONT AIR IT UP UNTI LAFTER YOU CLEAN!!!
amazing. Its just that amazing. try it demo it w/e u gota do then tell me u hate thsi gun.
Silver Shocker SFT
All American Barrel
not much, a new reg maybe, possibly a barrel, but its not needed
Fast, Light, Quiet
Not much. my stock reg leaks a little, but thats not the guns problem.
I love this gun. the shocker is light, fast, quiet, pretty much everything you want in a paint gun. even comes stock with an all american barrel, which is awesome in my opinion. the only problen ive had with it is that i got it used and the stock reg leaks out the bottom hole. i know that it needs the o-rings lubed, but i dont have much time to do it right now. other than that, this gun rips faces off. get one
