Ok my friend just bought this gun online... He told me before he got it that it was a Shocker. I was thinking of the slim, single tubed Shocker... (Is there any other kind?) and when he gets it... he showes me this...

Now isnt that a Impulse? Correct me if I'm wrong... but I dont remember there ever being a shocker that looked like that. It looks like someone just slapped a Shocker bubble on there where the Impulse one used to be.

If I am wrong, I have honestly never seen a Shocker like this before... does it mean that its really old? Or maybe rare?

They also weigh 6 metric tons. How much did he pay for it?

And the original shocker (roughly same design as that one only alot older and a little chunkier) was one of the first electro pnuematic markers.

He got it for $280 with a tank, gloves, hopper, and pod pack. I think it came with a Halo, looks like Draxxus gloves, not sure what kinda pod pack... But I think he got one hell of a deal.

I wouldn't pay more than $150 for the gun, if that much even, so it isn't a terrible deal. They are pretty outdated...and thats putting it lightly. They are kinda neat though. This is one of the few guns that the 03 Shocker is better than IMO.

One of my friends had one back in the day. When it worked it was good, although it was broke most of the time.

No, it mean you're a newb, LOL. I love the old shoe box shockers! They are one of my first "fantasy markers".

i started playing right after the 03s came out, so i didnt ever see many of those, but ya. what your friend got is definitely a shocker. and its definitely older than dirt. if it still works, tho, thats pretty cool. if its in really good condition, its a collectors item

if it is a 99 model it is a collectors item, other than that and it is just a brick or a paperweight.

He said its not working right now. There is a leak in a hose somewhere. :-\ Hes going to drop it by my workplace to get it repaired.

I'll ask if its a 99 model.

Heh correct me if im wronge..... but these are the markers that run like cockers?.... bolt stays foward until you pull the trigger then it loads and shoots?..

Either way looks kinda cool.. and is a good use of paintball history.

Troof in a way they had 2 finger trigger, and they weighed even more and were about 1/2 an inch longer AND taller.

anything between 96-99 was the first style smart parts shocker, finding a pre 97 (made by pnueventures) is damn near impossible and those are the ones that would be a collector.


http://www.ody.ca/~cwells/images/sp_shocker-first-electro.jpg < that is a 96 SP/pneuventures shocker the design did not change until 99 when they cut some extra slack and made it "more reliable" It remained unchanged again until 01 when they did the same thing again, and redone with new internals again in 02, in 03 they realized it was an old design and completly revamped it.

you're thinking of a rainmaker...

This is a true closed bolt marker, it cocks automaticaly with the first trigger pull thus making it like the rainmaker AND the cocker. The shocker was released before the rainmaker thus the reason why SP is bigger than BE is IMO.

Notice it says "ultra light weight" hehe if they only knew then what we do now and "patents pending" was a sign of things to come.
