Impulse w/ Vert Reg

Considering selling my impulse because I haven't played in forever and we could use the extra money. Not quite sure what it's worth so I'd like to find out.

Sadly, you're not going to get much. Most people would only give $120-$150 for that nowadays. Some people will give more that have soft spots in their hearts for classic Imps, but the vast majority of the paintball populace won't give much.

Yeah - but if you've tried lugging one out on a field after playing with one of the 2-3 pound markers we're used to...

....you'll damn near lose an arm due to weight.

Heh - I pulled my 2k2 stock with Max Flo bottom line reg out to replace a downed marker in a private party setting. 98 degrees, 75%+ humidity...and at CPX, they make you walk from A->B if they don't have a huge number of people on site.


That marker gets HEAVY after several games....in the heat. On the walk back - I fondly remember my thoughts...er...thought:


"I wanna go home. I'm so done. This damn thing is heavy... I want my little 2 pound ETEK... I wanna go home...Someone else carry this for me... I wanna go home."





Still shoots like a champ. Smooth as butter - only using a delrin bolt and a tapeworm as mods. Nobody could find anything wrong with using it except its weight...

Hell - if I could slim that down to 2-3 pounds, retaining its shot - etc..and didn't have to upgrade the board to be able to BPS cap (stock was 13.7 w/o eyes, I believe)... I'd almost consider using it as a primary.... eeh.. I'd want to fix the trigger geometry - the blade didn't do it for me..and the stock sucked.

Well i play with a matrix on most days and i never have a problem with the weight of the gun. But some people think im stupid for using the gun even though it shoots better than their gun. One guy was using my gun for a game but this guy normally played with a mini and after the game he said he was tired but he loves how it shot
Never owned a stock bodied imp so i cant say nothing for the weight and shot of the marker. I might have to look around to see if i can get another private label one to play around with

sold mine for around $120 pretty similar to yours but no fancy milling

whatever you do DO NOT part off the vision, value will plummet if you do, unless you just want to part out the whole thing, which is not a bad idea, there still are a handfull of impulse owners out there looking for parts that are non-existant

probably the 2 most valuable things on the marker, the long vision detent and the vision board and eye itself

Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, that makes a firearm better makes a paintball marker worse. They are 2 very different worlds with nothing except a trigger in common
