Default 03-04 shocker?

i think you mean "sights" as in "sites" as in "websites". the 03-04 stands for 2003-2004, they dont make shockers from years ago. If you goin to buy a new shocker it is going to be a 2006. Used is goin to be the only way you can buy a 2003-2004 shocker.

Edit: post-2003 shockers are known as 03 shockers also for they havent changed since being reamped in 2003

post 03 shockers are all referred to as 03 shockers. After the 1st 2500 shockers, Smart Parts worked out any little bugs and corrections on the basic internal design (and by changes I mean material used to construct the bolt guide, the on/off switch). In late 04 early 05 they introduced the nerve board with ramping modes to the shocker, same as in the nerve marker. So far all intents and purposes all post 03 shockers are the same, only question is what board is in it.

I hope this helps, and for one last piece of input, I love my shocker. I keep adding little tweaks to squeak out that last bit of efficiency. You will definitely want to invest in a high efficiency bolt, beyond that they are great even stock.

Best of luck - Smoke, aka Mark

No shockers other than private label come with HE kits, I meant that is one upgrade you should buy for the shocker.

Yup - that's correct. However, some of the earlier 03 versions came with a delrin bolt - which was soon changed to aluminum. The delrin would scratch and cause air leaks...if you buy an 06 shocker, you're actually buying an 03 shocker that was made in 06. No difference because it's the same exact style. RUMOR - see rumor - has it that the 07's are going to have an HE bolt and clamping feedneck, but then again, probably not...

I'm currently in a love/hate relationship with my Shocker. Best gun I've ever shot (especially with all the ups I have in it) but I just found out that I have to buy a new solenoid - I think. The wiring harness didn't help. So I can't play with it this weekend, and it looks like I'm out ANOTHER 125.00.....I HATE when it isn't my fault that a gun breaks down....

i don't think they sell non-vision shockers anymore. i don't know why you wouldn't want the vision either. Also, you might ask durrel how much he would charge cuz he might be able to give you a better price.

Only certain PL Shockers come with HE bolts. Most are just stock shockers with milling. Rumor also has it that the 07 Shocker will have break beam eyes also, since the Tremor Shocker is coming with them.
