The BushMaster 2000 comes standard with the most capabilities at the flick of a switch. There are four separate
modes to choose from. Go from semi-auto (single shot), 3 shot burst, 6 shot burst, or full auto by flipping a switch
inside the grip. Each of the 3, 6, or full-auto modes stops when the trigger is released, allowing single shot firing in any
The Indian Creek Designs Bushmaster 2000 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Bushmaster 2000 (2002)
Halo B, ACI BULLDOG 3 47CI 3000PSI tank (soon to be chaos chip)
I reccomend a Halo B because it will leave you with no gaps also if you get chaos it will be the only loader that can keep up bsides evo 2 Nirtro because c02 will freeae the internallls
good stock regulators (if set right +5-5)
Stcok grips ok thats it
I beleive that this gun is an exellent choice. This gun fires at 13 BPS and if you get a chaos chip it will fire at a amazing 20 BPS. The later 2003 versions are capped at 33.3 BPS well my bshmaster is LIGHT also it has good stock regullators not only that but the stock barrel is accurate and the trigger is just beutiful light and fully adjustale. Even the spring on 2002 versions! But be sure to get a HALO B or Evoloution 2!
I beleive this product is great it's all good and theres nothing wrong with it buy this product!
Light, Decent Speed, Good price for what it offers
High profile, Bad Barrel, Ugly Grip, needs better instructions and Bad customer support from ICD.
Overall its a decent marker for the price.
Offers Lightweight, decent speed, reasonable price.
Profile is kinda high, stocker barrel is really bad (barrel upgrade is a must)
Marker design is kinda plain. Instruction is not detailed and cheap.
Taking marker apart for battery change and setup is annoying. It needs a better wiring setup.
Had a few minor problems with the marker took customer service forever to get a
For the price that is what you have to live with. Not a bad marker compare with the prices nowadays.
If your budget is around there, this is marker to choose. Not much out there to compare with its price range IMO
ANS GENx2 Reg
Vapor FMD/COCKER LPR
Choas Chip (For those that feel the need for speed)
Best Bang for the buck, if you don't want to spend mucho $$
Needs new vavle or its a gas hog
I have both a Defiant and a Bushmaster, both are great guns, and both work excellent. If you want speed then you must buy an upgrade chip, I suggest a choas chip you can get these from www.vaporworks.net. The valve iself needs to be changed our you won't get as many shots per tank that you should. I'd get a HPR regulator, a barrel, and a vapor valve first. Then if you need speed, a choas chip. After all this, you should be shooting +-2-6 and easily laying strings of paint.
Its a great product, it would be even better if it had everytthing it needed to be great stock. I say its great, but it needs some money put into it to make it at par with an angel or maxtrix, but hell its way cheaper.

BKO- only tested
Electro Spyders and Varios Electro Clones, mainly my M3 black dragun
Red B2K, 4th or 5th gen. (fishbone milling)
2K3 stock reg (is much more consistent than the original)
Smart Parts adjustable feed neck- red
Dye sticky grips-black
Aci Bulldog 2 68/4500 air system
I would definately recommend a fast motorized loader, such as an egg, halo, or x-board revy
A new regulator is a must, the stock one is not very consistent, the field i purchased mine from got the 2K3 reg. when another bushy owner purchased a torpedo reg, and this one works really well, and it is easier to adjust the velocity
the stock bolt, 'course, is made of delron, which makes for minimal maintenance
have to use N2 (not necessarily a bad thing)
This marker was ready to go, right out of the box, and is used the world over by the pros, it has earned the nickname "the poorman's angel" well, from what i've seen, the angel is bigger(pysically),heavier, has a larger rep, pricetag, and an advanced trigger assembly. The bushy is lighter, quieter, and in my opinion, better, honestly, now adays, who needs all of the fancy stuff, and if you want it that bad, get a chaos chip or tantrum chip! if ya want an LCD screen, get the 2K2, it comes with it, or the shocktech bushy! want a PDS? get a 2K3 or shocktech bushy which come with them pre-installed, or add it later! total it all up, and you have saved 200-500 dollars! This marker is the one to get, regardless of skill or rank, i guarantee that you will love it
this marker is great for players of all age, size, and rank, i believe i explained why it is better, in some ways, than an angel
Angels, timmies, impys, cockers, pretty much anything you can come up with I've at least shot if not owned.
5th Gen Bushmaster2K (2nd fishbone generation)
Green and Black splash
Torpedo Inline reg
CP One piece 12" (.693)
68/3000 Centerflag Tank
Warp feed with 12v Revvy (X-Board, Turbo impeller)
The above basically... :-D
I recommend a large bore barrel, its the easiest way to do things. With my cocker I use a freak, but its not needed for an open bolt gun like the Bushy
I plan on getting the new trigger frame from ICD, its more comfy than the one I have and is much more adjustable.
Looks(I think anyway)
Hehe... Sometimes too fast... Gets very expensive
I love this gun. Plain and simple.
With a new chip (Chaos) and good trigger, this thing totally rips. I would take a bushy over an angel anyday. It is so fast and light, which is important when you play front. And if your a front man like me, i also recommend a warp. Makes playing the snake much more fun.
I love the way mine looks, the fishbone milling is cool, and the green with black splah anno job is done very well.
I haven't had any problems with it except for the inline reg. But ICD's inline regs are hit or miss in general. Some work, some don't. And well... Mind didn't. So i threw an adapter on her, and bought a Torpedo. and I couldn't be happier.
I love this gun, and the milling on the 2k3's is totally awesome! I recommend a bushy to any serious player that doesn't want to shell out a grand just for a gun. I shelled out a grand for a gun and extras. :-) Yay warp feed!
Gave it a nine because my reg didn't work. Otherwise its a TEN all the way.
2k3 red cocker, jam bolt, system x drop, vigilante reg, nitro. all else stock
fast, very fast, nice trigger
you will shoot tons of paint but that isn't bad
great gun for any position, very compact, very fast. great gun, i would take it over an angel. yes angel are fast, but bushies can cycle much faster and are low pressure. icd has great customer service. and bushies are alot cheaper than angels., now i waste space

great gun, mid price range. great all around for any position players (very small and light weight.) pretty accurate but a barrel system (freak) is always a good idea
gen 7 b2k
zent 15 degree asa
kapp delrin detent
freak kit w/14" AA
aci bulldog2 68ci 3000 w/450psi out
1st- halo b w/ macdev low rise (no sanding)
2nd- hpr & vapor valve
3rd- barrel kit
fast, light, and there are enough custom parts to build a B2k
gas hog, needs to be upgraded (see below)
My original set up for my b2k was stock with a revy and a freak. This gun was loud. The revy couldn't keep up. This led to a chopping problem. If you want you could hammer in a ball sensor, but I recommend the Halo B. Though still fast and light, it needed a few more upgrades. Its simple design was easy to upgrade myself. Unfortunately you need a custom asa for your upgraded hpr. With the hpr and valve upgraded: It is much quieter, really consistent (5fps), more efficient, and suffers from no shoot down, that I can tell. The trigger is sloppy. I found this to be a good thing because I can tap the side to shoot. I have mine set to shoot at less than a mouse click. (Many Angel owners have gasped at this trigger pull.) This truly is the poor man's angel.
This gun needs many upgrades (IMO) out of the box. You can, however, get by without them. Great first gun for somebody that wants a gun that can grow with them. Stock gets a 7. Upgraded a 9. For a final score of...

bushmaster 2000 w/ torpedo reg, systemx drop, and centerflag 88/4500 tank
i never used the stock reg so i cant necessarily say to change the reg, for all i know its great. but the it needs a new barrel (not desperately). and a drop because it doesnt come with one. i wouldnt recommend a halo because most are high rise i think.
fast, nice adjustable trigger, consistent, alot of upgradables, easy maintenance
trigger slop and stock board is capped at 13 bps
this gun works flawlessly when set up right. i use a preset tank yet it is still consistent with no air related problems. although stock chip is capped at 13 bps, it is still an amazing gun. the stock barrel would be the first thing i would get upgraded. it does shoot well with it but their is room for alot of improvement. i shoot evil balls and it shoots them well but the dye ultralite shoots them godly. i would recommend the ultralite for a barrel and a torpedo reg or vigilante if you want a new regulator.
if you are looking for a low cost yet reliable and fast gun, get a bushmaster. the lcd version is a bit nicer but this does what its supposed to perfectly. i am extremely impressed and happy with my decision to buy one.
a lot of different autocockers, automags, minimags, and, spyder electros, and my timmy...
Bob Long Classic intimidator w/ ans regulator, kapp dz3 drop zone, kapp on/ off asa, pmi pure energy 68ci/4500psi. Revy 12 volt x board hopper. all american 14 inch barrell
a new barrell and a fast hopper
very responsive trigger
not fast enough
tall with a setup
This gun is pretty good for the price... My cousin has one and i played a game with it. At first i thought it was so awesome because it was the first electro i have ever shot ... It shot pretty fast... Then i got an intimidator and the bushmaster is nuthing compared to it. The bushmaster looks pretty ok i guess
It sucks gas pretty crazy... and its a pretty outdated gun...
Dont buy this unless your a beginner maybe... If your looking for an electro get one of the bob long's intimidators... Im getting a Lasoya soon....
Smart parts basic impulse s/n 17830
Barrel, reg, trigger frame, internals.
Fast, and accurate stock.
Very ugly, needs a lot of upgrades to be really good.
This review is based on the most tricked b2k I've ever used, it was at a field, I ran into the guy who used to run my proshop, so he let me try out his serverly tricked bushy, it had like 3 trigger jobs, and a whole bunch of custom mods to it, it shot great. It was so fast, this was back in july when I had a slow trigger finger, and even I could whip out a consistant 13 on it. If I knew how to walk it im sure I could have done faster. This was an all around great marker, If you get the upgrades that he had on it, it will perform just as well as any other marker on the market.
Great marker if you want to put some money into it to make it running top knotch, but if not it'll still perform well with a few minor upgrades.
