Python Impulse
Manufacturer:  Southern Paintball Concepts
Release date:  December 2002
Price:  Gun $1099 / Body Kit $550

Notes: The Python Impulse was introduced in October 2002 at the World Cup. Southern Paintball Concepts founder Oscar Jimenez along with his machinist partner, Roy Fischer designed the Python but Smart Parts actually manufactured the gun. The Python Impulse is one of the harder to find imps these days. SPC only manufactured these guns for one year so their isn't too many of them out there. In July 2004, SPC had a "2K3 Python Closeout" sale and lowered the price from $1099 to $775

SIC Impulse
Manufacturer: Sick Innovative Customs
Release date: 2003

     * Custom built SIC Impulse: $1,700
     * SIC milling (one color):       $550
     * SIC milling (two colors):      $650
     * SIC milling (three colors):    $750

Notes:The SIC milling was done by Milkman and Alphy. Yes, that is the same Milkman that made the "Milkman Trigger" for the iframe. These impulses were available in two different milling styles, full length and shorty. The frist shorty every cut was blue/yellow/orange fade. The last shorty every cut was pink to pewter fade. Everything was designed in CAD and the marker body was cut on a high-tech CNC mill. Due to the intricate designs of the "ribs", the full length milling was only available in a dust finish. The glossy finish lost too much of the detail of the milling. A complete SIC impulse could only be purchased through Hyper Sport Works, but if you sent in your stock body to SIC, they could do the milling and anno. The SIC Impulse was one of the only true custom non-smart parts designed Impulse.

Meteor Impulse
Manufacturer: Meteor Paintball
Release date: August 2001
Price: $1400

Notes:The Meteor Impulse was originally made for an outfit over in France. They were not able to sell their quota so Smart Parts shopped them around to other dealers such as Michigan Paintball, Paintball Wholesalers, Paintball Gear and Atomix Paintball. The Atomix Factory team actually used Meteor Imps before they created their Atomix Impulse. Their was an extensive review of the Meteor in the October 2001 issue of PGi magazine. The knock on the Metoer was that you are paying a HIGH price tage for the milling (which takes a long time to do because it uses several tool changes ans some real small mills, the internals and performance of the Meteor was not the best out there.

    * Custom Milled Gas Thru Grip

Adrenalin Impulse
Manufacturer: Adrenaline Products
Release date: August 2002
Price: $949 (solid color) $999 (two colors) $1049 (three colors)

Notes: According to James Graley, president of Adrenaline Products, their were a little under 600 Adrenalin impulses manufactured. So they are a fairly common private label impulse.


* New Style Adrenalin Version "Cricket" Vision Board
* Adrenalin Bolt (Black Derlin) with Adrenalin Gel Decal
* Adrenalin Stainless Hammer
* Derlin Valve
* Adrenalin Serial # i.e. A.I.00023
* Choice of Adrenalin Low Rise or Adrenalin Hi Rise
* Adrenalin Rear Hammer Cap
* Adrenalin GP Slide Check - which is an extremely fancy tapeworm. It's actually mechanical and moves back and forth to regulate airflow somewhat like a 14-way operates. Its an Air Check Valve. It functions the same or better as an LPR setup except it does not lower the operating pressure as much and will tend to operate around 165 psi. Those interested in a lower operating pressure around 135 psi should purchase the LPR option listed below. The GP takes up the entire right tube. It is made up of a rear tube where the mechanical parts are located and a threaded front tube that is colored or chromed for appearance and can be switched out for different colors (so the milled through "Adrenalin" name shows up differently). The GP Slide Check will not function along with the Adrenalin LPR setup and therefore the rear part of the tube of those who choose an LPR option will be for appearance only and operate as an airway only as all airflow management operations will be performed by the LPR and not by the GP Check Valve.
* Adrenalin Grip Frame - with choice of Single Trigger or Double Trigger frame setup. The Adrenalin Grip Frame is a 1-piece frame/solenoid tray housing that will fit the new cricket board. We relocated the solenoid tray setup to decrease the height by 1/2" and we moved the entire grip forward quite aggressively. There are  no milled sections for the old style on/off switch on the left or the rubber cover on the right side. It has a built in magnet utilizing a unique magnetic trigger setup.
* Adrenalin Chrome Button  - Chrome on/off (cricket button) on the back replaces the black plastic one. It definitely adds a little bling-bling to the gun.
* Worlds First ever 4th Axis Impulse body - The Adrenalin Impulse body has been custom drilled for unique airflow and connections. Although this means some parts from other companies including smart parts will not fit or operate on an A.I. you wont want them to. We redesigned it for optimum performance and that is exactly what you will get. The Air inlet and the vertical screw has been moved forward to align the gas-through grip with the front of the grip frame rather than setting it back off of it. This allows for room to get your fingers in between it and the trigger frame which is required because we've moved the grip frame forward about 1".
* Choice of Adrenalin Vertical Adapter or Adrenalin 15 Degree Adapter - These adapters are made to accept US threaded regulators and gas through grips. They will not fit stock impulses due to our customization of the body and adapter connections and airflow pathways but they fit the A.I. very nicely!
* Adrenalin Single Trigger (for single frames) or Double Trigger (for double frames) - Also for those who prefer the double trigger frame setup, there is an additional choice of either a stick trigger or double trigger or both. Again due to our custom frame & trigger setup the Adrenalin Triggers currently function only with Adrenalin Impulses.
* Adrenalin Gas Through Grip - Hands down the most stylish and innovative gas-through to-date for the Impulse. Machined to match the rest of the Adrenalin Impulse. A visual beauty!
* Adrenalin Bolt Pin and Adrenalin Threaded Head - Look for additional stylish Adrenalin "pinheads" in the future.
* Adrenalin Stainless Steel Screw Set - We replaced all of the screws on the gun with stainless steel versions. Don't worry about rust, we've got you covered.
* Adrenalin Front Cap - These include an Adrenalin Gel Decal for those with GP setups and underneath the decal is an Allen screw. Should you choose to upgrade to the LPR setup at any later date, simply remove the Adrenalin Gel Decal, remove the Allen screw, thread in the Adrenalin LPR, remove the GP valve and insert the chromed air tube and you're good to go.  Upgrade from the Check Valve to the LPR in less than one hour.
* Matching (both front AND back) freak barrel with choice of 1 insert (any size).
* Blasted Finish
* Solid Color anodizing (blue, red, purple, green, black, silver, etc)
* Color matched soft-gel sticky grips with Adrenalin Gel Decals
* Personalized Adrenalin plastic photo ID Card - for service and repair tracking as well as theft   protection
* Adrenalin's Famous Customer Service and Warranty Coverage


* Reflective Polished finish rather than blasted finish: $50
* MATCHING Max-Flo regulator and 68ci tank (other tank sizes available): $350
* Remove gas-thru grip and add matching vertical Max-Flo: $50
* Upgrade from Freak Barrel with 1 insert to entire Freak set with case and 8 inserts: $100
* Upgrade Freak barrel back to Stainless Steel: $20

Demonic Impulse
Manufacturer: Roughneck Paintball
Release date: November 2001
Price: $949.99

Notes: Demonic Impulses were one of the first Private Label impulses. They didn't sell too long due to a disagreement with Roughneck Paintball and Smart Parts on the amount of bodies they were to buy. Tez Patel was the owner of Roughneck Paintball and designed the Demonic Impulse. After the disagreement Smart Parts had some bodies leftover so they decided to use the Demonic design for their new "custom" Team Strange impulses. Which is why the Demonic imp looks "oddly" similar to the Strange! Rumor has it their were about 50 Demonic Imps manufactured. People who already owned a stock impulse could "Turn Demonic" and have their stock bodies milled into a Demonic for $500.

In January 2002 Roughneck Paintball released Demonic Impulse 2.0.  

 · Strangler feedtube
 · New grip frame (like the I-Frame, but with outside trigger adjustments and will accept any Imp trigger)

Toxic Impulse
Manufacturer: Toxic Performance
Release date: August 2001
Price: $750 (single color, non-vision), $850 (fade, non-vision), $950 (single color, vision), $1050 (fade, vision)

Notes: Toxic Performance's designers believed in the Impulse so much that they wanted to put their mark on a few of them. "The Impulse's design and popularity both make it an obvious choice for us to want to work on them, said Toxic's Dave Rotunda."  He adds, "We all love the way they shoot, and how easy they are to work on, but we knew that it wouldn't be too hard to make them a bit nicer looking."  Toxic had a good run in the paintball world and was later purchased by Diablo Direct Paintball Business Supply.

Toxic expressed interest in doing a custom gun to Smart Parts and they received wholehearted support from them, so much so that Smart Parts would be willing to produce the Impulses they designed for Toxic.

Their were approximately 350 Toxic Impulses manufactured including the 2nd style milling with the "windows". In January 2002, Toxic Impulses now came stock with New Designz bolts/pins and a tapeworm. Toxic made 10 vision, and 10 non-vision of every color they produced. They usually had "runs" of about 10 guns (sometimes 6, sometimes 2).

At the 2003 World Cup, Toxic released the "new milling pattern" aka "2004 Toxic Impulse." Their were only 98 Imps produced in this style. They featured "windows" near the back bolt area of the gun.

Only March 4, 2004, Cousin's Paintball was robbed and ONE Toxic Impulse was stolen. It was an Orange to Yellow Fade, non-vision # 00186.

Below is a list of "runs" to help you identify the rarity and age of your Toxic.

*Note* Earlier Toxic's have a DUST/MATTE finish. Around the 8th series (Sept '02), Toxic began using a polished finish.

1st Series: Black (sold out in 2 weeks)
2nd Series: Silver, Yellow
3rd Series: Light Gold, Silver, Dark purple (Barney), Blue-Silver fade (6 each)
4th Series: Red-Charcoal fade (aka "Burning Ash fade)
5th Series: Red/White/Blue fade, Red/Orange/Yellow (aka "dusk")
6th Series: "Blood", "Blood fade", "Dawn" (red, yellow, orange)  
7th Series: Ectoplasm Green, Orange/Yellow fade  
8th Series: Ice blue (polished), red (polished), Blue-Grey fade (polished, only 2 were made and Toxic sold them at the 2002 World Cup!)

Hotrod Impulse
Manufacturer: Boston Paintball Supply
Released date: March 2001
Price: $699.00

Notes: The Hotrod Impulse was one of the first private label impulse ever manufactured. Can't say it was one of the prettiest PL imps but it surely was one of the first! Despite the secrecy from Boston paintball Supply, they did in fact manufacture and sell this gun. The proof is in the picture below!

Features: The features are really unknown - but by comparing the Hotrod to the base Smart Parts Impulse, their are a few notable differences.

     * custom milling & anno
     * custom feedneck
     * custom ram assembly
     * custom trigger

Eclipse Impulse
Manufacturer: Planet Eclipse
Released date: July 2001
Price: $1350

Notes: The Eclipse Impulse was manufactured in Europe but still was backed by the Smart Parts name and gaurentee. In May of 2002 Planet Eclipse released the "New" Eclipse Impulse. It had all the old features with some added new ones. Soon after Eclipse decided they didn't want to retail the Eclipse Impulse any longer, so bought up the remaining guns and sold them under the name "Mouse Impulse" without the Eclipse jewels on the gun.

Planet Eclipse also produced the infamous "Aurora Impulse." Their are no exact numbers confirming how many were Aurora's were made, but the general consensus is that no more than 10 were ever manufactured. Exactly how they were made is still a tightly guarded secret by the Planet Eclipse team. Back when they were selling these, Planet Eclipse stated that the process took 40,000 volts and had a 90% failure rate. Whether or not this was a marketing ploy is still unknown.

Evil Impulse
Manufacturer: Evil Paintball
Released date: March 2003
Price: $899

Notes: In March 03's issue PGI their was an interview with Mike Lynch of Evil Factory (team). Here is an excert of the interview.

PGI: First Things first: you shot nine pods and a hopper in a 1:38 game - thats an average of roughly 15 BPS. Now either you've got an insane gun or your fingers don't obey the laws of space and time...which is it?

Mike Lynch: Even though you still don't believe me! It's true - I shot nine pods and a hopper against KAPP Factory in the finals and the game lasted 1:38. The gun is an Impulse with a Hyper Sport Works I-Frame, Evil Respirator, Evil Hammer, Evil Bolt and Evil Valve installed on it - and it is insanely fast. Sometimes when I am shooting it I am amazed at how fast it is. I am sure that my fingers have something to do with it but without the gun being fast itself I wouldn't be able to shoot like that.

PGI Note: due to the overwhelming responses to how fast Mike's gun shot at Huntington Beach, PMI has announced that it is releasing an Evil Impulse, set-up exactly like Mike's. We understand that the first run will be a stock body with Evil stuff on it and a Hyper Sport Works I-Frame. The next run will be an Evil Factory Team Edition and will be cut and carved as well.

P.S. The "cut and carved" Evil Impulse was never released.

Manufacturer: Hyper Sport Works
Release date: January 2003 (kinda, see below)
Price: Unknown

Notes: John "Hysider" Young was a Smart Parts trained technician and the owner of Hyper Sport Works. He was the brains behind the I Frame, HypeAir foregrips and everything HSW for that matter. His business partner was Doug Murphy.

Sometime around the beginning of 2003, John decided to release a very limited number of his own custom Impulse. John was going to call the new impulse either "HyperPulse" or "MegaPulse" (he hadn't decided on a name just yet). The Impulse was still in the protoype phase when a devasting fire struck which sidetracked the project and eventually caused HSW to go out of business. Before the fire, HSW manufactured about 3 or 4 bodies protoyped and the I Frame matched. New Designz was going to work out the internals for them before the project was derailed. Sadly enough, the HyperPulse was never fully released.

Below is a picture of the first protoype of the HyperPulse! Notice the hole in the middle of the body? John put holes in the middle of the body to be able to see the valve.

     * HypeAir Foregrip

Blizzard Impulse
Manufacturer: Blizzard Paintball Products (Canada)
Release date: March 2003
Price: Depends

Notes: Blizzard Paintball Products was run by a group of guys who lived in Québec. They made totally custom impulses. The customer would tell them what parts, milling and color they wanted and BPP would quote a price.

BPP also made their own delrin bolts and LPR mods, as well as custom cockers, e-cockers and cockers parts. Since every one of their guns was unique, the "Blizzard Impulse" was not pre-manufactured and sold. BPP was merely a custom milling and anno shop.

    * Customer chose parts and upgrades - so the features vary
