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.
Impulse- Performs good, too bulky
Automags-Best mech guns (I Just had bad luck with regs)
06 Vision Shocker
Low Feed Neck
Halo B loader
An aftermarket bolt is needed to get good efficiency
Easy to maintain
Drains air fast
Need more maintenance than others
This is a great marker. I loved it out of the box. But quickly realized airgoes fast.
As a scenario player this is a big thing, air isnt always close by.
With a HE Bolt its much better on air and even a little more quiet, but consistancy over the chrono went down from +/- 3fps (Stock) to about +/-6fps(HE)
This gun has needed the most regular maintenance Ive ever had with any marker over ten years, but is super easy to do. No springs or orientation problems. If you do have any issues with any SP guns just go to zds paintball.
I give the gun an 8 out of the box and a 9 for my final marker. Its been my favorite gun so far.
with H.E. not half bad efficency
Nothing is bad about it.
Great gun, if i were you i would buy one emidietly. get off the floor. get to be 1 on 3 and u own the other team. just do it come on. I give it a 10. I no longer have it but i just wanted to try a new gun. Easy to maintain with the shocker lube. clean it and u will be fine. not hard to maintain. Shoots amazing. LIke a dream

Anno Fade and weakness
I've own many Smart Parts markers. I've owned the Nerve, Ion, Impulse and the Shocker. My favorite of which is the shocker. I ordered mine used. I found a good deal and he ship first. The marker was basically new in box, it came withe manual, box, lube, and blank warranty card. I also bought bone stock minus a dynasty board. When I took it out of its box and screwed in my 45/45 PMI nitrogen tank and tossed my VLocity into the feedneck. I had to do some pushing to get the loader in because of the stock feedneck. Anyways, I got it in and went into my backyard and put a hopper through it. The gun totally ripped and had just about no kick.. The stock parts on this gun are OK but I do recommend so upgrades. Right out of the box you need a rail and becuase the stock drop is horrid I also recommend a feedneck either the Q-lock or one of the CCM series. The last upgrade I recommend should be the High Efficiency Bolt because shockers are notorious for there air consumption.
I recommend this gun because its an extremely nice marker. Its good for any type of play you will experience.
Spyder Electra-just as fast with the rocker but not as light and it is bulky
Ion-Not even comparable...
Olive/Black Maniac Ego
ANS 68/45 tank
-Maybe a new board?
I bought this gun used with a dynasty board and hybrid grips and rail for $450, and it was a pretty good choice. This gun is really small and light, so it really comes in handy for a front player. But, it also shoots ropes so I would also reccomend it for a back player as well. The only things i have bad to say about it are that it has bad efficiency, so a new bolt is a must. Also, during the last month of me having this gun, there were so many problems. First, the bolt would stick really bad after every few games, so i would have to take the bolt out and relube it. Secondly, it leaked from the regulator so i had to send it back to smart parts to get that fixed.
If you can take care of this puppy, then it will work amazing. But, beware because you will have to clean and oil this thing a lot, and it could have problems later in its life.
ego's, dm4's 5's 6's, proto's....i'm a gun whore so i basically have had all of them
fully upped shocker||06 ego
45 45 ||68 45
velocity, pulse, halo||velocity, pulse, halo, depending which has the best batteries
black heart board
lucky un1tec barrel
any thing else to your preference
Light, easy to maintain, quiet, very good gun
Needs lubed often, air inefficient
Well i have had many shockers, the one have now has fully made me happy.
The thing i like mostly about them is that they are probably the best gun out there due to accuracy, weight, and stamina
I am a shocker tech so i keep my gun set up good, but all of my friend have shockers and as long as they keep them lubed, they are amazing, my suggestion is to get one, and lube the bolt every week, that will make you fall in love, at least i did
WGP Karnivor, sp Ion, sp Impulse, Tippmann a5 98, Pmr, prostock 05 and 04 autococker and pm7
silver sp shocker with maxflow reg 68/45 carelton nitro tank blue halo and redz blue tank cover
new bolt and reg peronal prefrence a bit of a gas hog
Speed,accuracy,weight and compact
This is a great gun honestly for the price its great and my friend has the new pm7 and it shot just as well if not better. It is a great buy now a days get it and you will be satisfied. Just buy it buy it buy it buy it buy it buy it buy it buy iy buy it buy it buy it
Shocker SFT 05 with a hedglock feedneck and turbocharger bolt, i use an ANS 65-45 tank and an Empire B reloader
BOLT, and when u get chance Freak Barrel
Speed, weight, accuracy
Air Hog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! eyes!!!
I got this for my birthday in june, i was supprised they could fit so much into such a small gun, the size is amazing. Unlike other guns, I was able to shoot this baby right out of the box, of course putting batteries in first. My first time with the gun on the field was decent cept for the fact that i was filling up with air every ten seconds. IT EATS AIR LIKE M&M's. I then took it to the shop and got the turbocharger bolt in. Now i have such a great combo. This gun compairs to Angels, Ego's and Timmies at half the price. IT WILL BE THE BEST PB INVESTMENT OF UR LIFE!
PS- always avoid white box paint, ur gonna need good paint such as xball gold if u want it to be at best performance, eyes cannot pick up dark colors and bolt will chop like an animal if it is crappy paint
Buy it, it is worth it, i give it a 9 cause of efficiancy. If u want to, the NXT is a great gun too, air fixed, but im not revewing it

I recieved this gun for Christmas along with a Draxxus Pulse loader. First when i took it out of the box i couldn't get the hopper in the feedneck no big deal. I went to the store and bought a clamping feedneck and it holds the hopper perfectly. When i took it out to shoot i only got about three hoppers and the air pressure was down like 1000 PSi but that really dosent matter if your field has unlimited air fills. Now the good stuff, this gun is fast and accurate. I was shooting ropes that was hitting a bucket from 35 yards. I only broke one ball in the barrel but that was because it was old paint.
I would buy this if you are looking for a good gun thats fast and accurate. If you are playing at a place that dosent have air fills i suggest buying a new bolt. Overall this is a great gun.

Everything else will work fine stock; those three things basically have to be upgraded. An SS manifold and a CCM frame aren't bad ideas either.
Very small and maneuverable
Very little kick
Needs upgrades to be competitive
I traded one my Timmy for a Shocker because I wanted to try one out. I made sure it had bolt/board upgraded because the Nerve board and the stock bolt are worthless.
That's one of the main problems with the Shocker--out of the box, they basically suck. The Nerve board has no FSDO settings and no way to cap ramping. The stock bolt is a joke. The stock detents are trash and easily blown out [which is why I bought a pair of Kilas right off the bat.] Aside from that, and as long as you make sure you've got lots of lube and o-rings on hand, the Shocker shoots really well. It's easy to get it blasting fools, especially with Tadao/Virtue/etc and a nicely set trigger. The size and shape, plus the fact that you can clamp yer hand and thumb over the barrel, means that it's very easy to move around.
Coming from shooting Vikings and Egos, I can't say that I'm especially impressed with the shoddy way that the Shocker is put together. The anno sucks because of the low quality aluminum used [cutting corners, SP...for shame] and the feedneck threads are just begging to be stripped [I epoxied mine in to be sure that I won't have that problem.] The trigger pin needs to be taped in place after taking the trigger out once, because the frame warps easily. The manifold strips easily, which is why my next purchase will be an SS manifold. The stock trigger frame absolutely blows--there's about half an inch for your fingers to fit in. CCM frame FTW.
These problems are all easily addressed given the money, and again, once they are fixed, the Shocker is a lot of fun to shoot. The overall problem is that when you add up the cost of a stock Shocker and all of the stuff it needs to shoot that well, you might as well just buy something else that does the job out of the box.
If you can buy one used with the upgrades that'll make it shoot nicely, and you are willing to deal with the maintenance/consumer anguish of using a SP product then by all means go for it. Just don't make the mistake of buying new and then blowing hundreds on parts just so it's acceptably functional.

angel speed, angel the gat, dm5, dm6, ego, ion, nerve
comparable. the angels are bigger by about 3/4 inch width and lots longer. take an ion, throw it away and buy a shocker and thats what its most like.
silver 06 shocker, halo b running electrical tape and exposed core mod, and dye throttle 45/45.
FEEDNECK!, trigger, HE bolt kit, VIRTUE. thats all you really need.
speed, size, and ACCURACY.
Feedneck, and efficiency.
The shocker is just amazing. the only problem is the feedneck. buy a q-lock, or other clamp feedneck IMMEDIATELY. i was outside shooting earlier today. the shocker could one ball a 2 inch thick steel pipe consistently from about 150 feet away. when i walked the trigger, it shot noticable ropes. it was hitting trees over and over again. its a destroyer. its a good deal. i bought mine for $475 about three monthes ago.
This gun is a destroyer. That's all you can say. I know why so many professional teams use shockers. but do buy a clamp feedneck and a HE bolt.
