Impulse Upgrade Thread

hey since the forums got hacked i thought i would start a new upgrade thread, please PM me with anything you would like me to add

the stock 12'' progressive that comes on the impulse is not a shabby barrel at all but there are many other barrels available if you care to upgrade, i would suggest a kit such as the...
-CP kit

if you want to upgrade your feedneck i would suggest a clamping feedneck to make sure your dont lose your hopper in a game

- SP makes the "twister" clamping feedneck
- New Designz makes their own clamping low rise (twisting)
- Check it products makes a clamping low rise (allen key)
- CCM makes a clamping low rise (allen key)
- Hybrid makes a hedlok low rise (twisting)
-LAPCO makes a low mid rise (twisting)

their are only two valves that i would really recommend.

-NDZ makes the R.I.P. valve which has an angled intake port which allows for much better air efficiency

- Function makes their own valve with a angled intake port also, which should do the same as the R.I.P. valve for efficiency

Internals and bolts
- NDZ has a bunch of great hammers and they have a slickshot ram shaft which is top notch, they also have top notch delrin bolts called The Equalizer that come in 3 sizes, flush with the back on the body, stock length, and stubby - NDZ also makes their HE(stands for high efficiency) ram housing which is said to add about 200 shots

- Function makes a bolt that is 2 piece delrin and aluminum

- evil makes a valve, a bolt, and a hammer assembly, i have no experiency with these products but most people prefer to go with other brands

- Eclipse makes a ram shaft and a hammers which are good and inexpensive, 18 dollars for both of them from certain sites

Trigger frames
there are 2 popular trigger frames for the impulse, the I-frame and the OTB frame

- the otb frame is a 90* frame with a magnetic curved trigger

- the Iframe is a normal 45* frame but the actual handle was moved up a good ways so it makes you hand alot closer to the reg when you hold your imp, the I-frame also incorporated the tray into the trigger frame

- Function - shaped like a swoop, spring return
- CP - shaped like a swoop, pivots on a bearing and magnet return, very smooth trigger
- Eclipse blade and Magno-blade
- NDZ spring and Pro-mag


non-vision cricket - 13.7 bps cap for most, there was a short run of boards with a cap of 20 BPS - dwell buttons on side of tray and dwell increments of .25 ms

vision cricket - 20 bps cap with vision on, has reflective movement sensing eye - not the greatest - everythign else same as non-vision

W.A.S. - recently released was boards have awesome eyes and better eye programming than the SP boards, they have trigger programmable Debounce, Dwell, etc. - check out for all the info - 150.00

Loki - board made by vaporworks and as of now (5/9/04) it has not been released- rumored to be about 100 dollars with the SP eye

LPR settups

- you have pretty much 4 options for an lpr settup
1. NDZ lpr settup
2. evil respirator
3. SP lpr settup
4. do it yourself by putting a cocker lpr on a tapped front cap or in the PRV hole on the VA and hooking it up to a lpr tapeworm via come microline

Snatch Grips

- NDZ talon
- CP snatch

Eye Covers

- NDZ tribal
- NDZ narrow
- NDZ flat

Back Caps
- NDZ makes a variety of back caps with designs on them

* i will add more detailed info and pictures later when i have time, again please PM me with info and such that you wish to be in this thread *

good post, well deserving of a stickie since the old one got deleted.
Yeah man great post, all you gatta do now is call Avanters over here you'll have a 50/50 chance of him either "STUCK" ing this (as hes done to others, so many times before) or deleting this for ya. lol.
what sucks is that I deleted my copy of my huge post from the last one a few weeks ago....
yea menace yours was pretty good

im gonna try to get pictures soon
yea, if u had more detail on the other upgrades, its well worth holyness
other upgrades? as in what?
like explain exactly what a snatch grip is

there are more valves, whether or not u perfer them, its still nice to have all the diff options

add in solenoid optimizers (tapeworms) and the different brands

there is a function lpr

there are more triggers and more frames

there are more bolts and internals

i dunno, there is just a lot more info needed to be added, ill let you do the research since its ur thread
See less See more
ok fine ill go back and all the nitty gritty
Ahh, them pics werent in there before, nice touch.
Function makes a Bolt and Bolt pin, You have Voodoo Bolts, Eclipse Bolts, Werm makes alot of stuff, Paintball Kingdom makes and sells Claming Feeds w/ O-rings in them and snatch grips. There are the I-frame, OTB, Werm Frame, and 1 other w/ a microswitch in it. there is ALOT of stuff you missed. And like Paint said, you should add alot more detail into it bro. good try for a "rough draft" post
mr.bunkertime please go back up and read the WHOLE thread becuase i have most of the stuff u listed

i did not do bolt pins because they are close to useless, i did not do the werm stuff yet because its not very highly appreciated like NDZ, and same with the PBK stuff, i had the iframe and the orb, i need to put the werm frame, the dynamix, and the ripper

like i said i will add more later
demonic also makes quite a few parts... and u need rat parts too
lol, youre the one that decided to take up on an upgrade thread
impulse upgrades

I've just purchased an Impulse w/OTB Trigger and a Delrin Bolt of some make. Would anyone have an OTB Manual to share? seems like three modes of operation and I don't know how or if I can adjust the trigger pressure. I'm also not sure which board it has and how to identify them. An Impulse manual would be great also.
