PostPosted: Sun Jun 12, 2005 9:22 pm    Post subject: New one.

Well i'm new here, so uh.. i'll introduce myself

-name is Branden
-been pb'ing for 8+ years
-stopped pb for a year, and gonna start back up now
-i had a custom built 2k2 cocker, then i sold it during the winter 2 years ago.
-been looking into a lot of guns and searching around a lot. Since obviously i guess i missed A LOT just with in a year of not being up to date with stuff.
-read and heard about this new "ION" gun that SP came out with, all the new A/C's, just calculating prices on how much it'll be to build my own A/C again, Mag. Then i remembered, hmm... i don't want to go fast non-electro again. Really want to go electric this time. So i remembered i looked into a Bushy lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnng time ago "back in the day". Looked up ICD, and saw they're still in production. So now i have it in mind. Thought it looked great from many of the sites i went to, never held it in person.

Just reading around what kinda mods can be done to this B2k4, and how good it is. So far i think it's a 80%+ clear that i'm gonna get one.

What do you guys like the most about this gun? that's what i want to really hear. Is it hard to strip apart the gun to clean after a nice day of pb? is it hard to tune? Like i read how a lot of the stuff is A/C threaded. You can put on a A/C lpr? A/C threaded vert. reg? am i correct here?

Last question, before i press submit. What's this deal with PDS and fast loaders? Do i NEED a PDS? or will i be ok with either or a fast loading hopper or PDS. Cause in order to "save a bit of money" since i'm kinda tight "At the time", i was thinking a Egg2 with the "upgraded board" forgot what it was called.

As far from i know, all i need to do is,
1) buy gun
2) macro kit with a drop
3)egg with board (fill me in on this, if i should get the new board or not)
4) lpr adapter with a lpr
5) barrel

=that right there is about a good $4....$450'ish. Might be a bit more, depending on what i get.

So uh.. get back to me, hopefully i can "learn" more about this gun, since you guys are like.."more pro than me" since i 'm new with this gun, but it when it comes down to a A/C i'm still pro. Wink Nice meeting all of you.

welcome to icd-o

1)best thing about bushy for me is either the feel of the trigger, the reliability, the customer service, or the amount of upgrades.
2)you dont NEED pds, its just really helpful if you dont want to chop. you can always have ICD/vaporworks/pb geek install it when you get more money
3)the upgraded board for the eggy is the z board
4)you dont NEED an lpr/adaper. the stock one isnt bad. i cant say the same about the stock hpr though. i highly suggest getting an aftermarket hpr(cp/gladiator/sidewinder are all good)
5)www.countypaintball.com has cheap bushmasters should save you some money unless thats where you were looking.

thanks bushyman for responding to my posts. So "theoretically speaking" if i buy a B2k4... what should be the first mods i should buy? Does it matter what nitro tank i use? Cause i'm really tight on cash right now. So i think i might just buy a 48cu 3k-psi aluminum tank. And Halo loader.

Im not sure about anyone else, but I can hold my BKO (really close to the B2k4) with my weak hand by the HPR easily.

The Tank doesn't matter as long as it's not Co2.

I would take a b2k4 over an ION anyday.

If you are buying new, Im not sure if any are still in stock, but for awhile you could get a b2k4 with PDS for around 300.
