Dude the 04 vert is an amazing gun for the price. It's accurate even with the stock barrel, it comes with a bottom line, and there are so many upgrades for it its unbelievable.

Haha funny, mech isn't better then electro. The b2k4 would be a better decision, unless you were planning on getting e-blade for the 04 vert and a lot of other ups. I would get it with pds though, to prevent from chopping.

Yes to answer you question the b2k4 is better then the bko. The BKO's use a 2-way solenoid while the Bushmasters/Defiants use a 4-way solenoid. The 4-way solenoid uses air to move the bolt forward and backwards, while the 2-way uses a spring to return the bolt the the cocker position. The 2-way solenoid does allow for better efficiency of the gun, but cannot sustain heavy ROF's (rate of fire). The 2-way soleniod is said to be capable of no more than 17bps.

Either Keep your A5, or buy a Pretty Stock Impule and build yourself one.

Voodoo Bolt.
Magnetic Blade Trigger.
WAS Board.
New Cradle.
New Hammer.
Low Rise Feedneck (The stock feedneck looks like a Smoke Stack)
Probably a new Barrel.

After that you'd have one Hell of a Impulse. That or you can Save your money just a bit longer and buy a Rat Jr. (Non-Vision) for 525$ and Add a WAS Board later

Go with the B2K4. Its way better then any stock mechanical Cocker and iots more reliable and better quality then the Impy.
