please try to help me id an old electronic marker. sorry i cannot seem to up load a pic from my cell, so ill have to just try to wing it. ok, its a stacked tube, spash annoed, bolt has pin at the top behind vert. feed tube, no eyes that i can see, just the old cocker style ball detente, the body is very cut and carved with day light between the stacked tubes, single style trigger, with PP on the rubber grips. other than that there is no other visible lettering or name. on first glance it looks to be some kind of old timmy or similar model. the body is boxy, and rectanglar, think, old school shocker, or trix, but way lighter. back of marker has an on off switch, some kind of port mabey for a charger, or internet cable. it does have a 9 volt battery on the right side of the grip i think. there is no external lpr, reg is huge, reminds me of an old spyder reg, drop forward goes wayyyy forward with a stubby tank that looks pretty new, looks like cocker threads for the one pc barrel. im thinking circa, 99-2001 mabey. price is dirt cheap, stubby tank is worth price of the whole deal. gun, drop, tank, 2 barrels, viewloader revvy. less than 100.00. but i would at least like to know what marker it is and if i can even find parts for it. i dont need a 65 dollar paper weight. lol. if i can figure out how to up load pics i will do it as i did take several pics of the marker. thanks in advance.

Its either a Bob long defiant, a Smart Parts Impulse, or an ICD Bushmaster. The Defiant and the Bushmaster are almost identical besides the Defiant using Autococker threaded barrels, and the Bushmaster using ICD threads. The patent was actually jointly owned by Bob Long and Indian Creek Designs, pretty decent shooting markers. The impulse takes Smart Parts threads and is kind of quirky, it will need a tapeworm LPR mod to function without really bad first shot drop. Depending on upgrades they are all worth about $100, the Defiant being worth slightly more because it takes autococker threads.With the right upgrades they are all pretty fun shooters, I still take out my heavily modded bushmaster every now and then and it still rips, despite the fact that it only has semi auto and is completely blind.

tribal? who made tribal have not heard of or have just forgotten that one. my guess is mabey a bushmaster but still its longer more like an old school matrix. the back is flush with no knob. the bolt is visible from the back but flush with the back. on the back plate is a micro switch, and a red, green ,and yellow light. also some kind of port or jack. other than that the set up seams same as imp, bushy, defiant etc. it does look like at once upon a time it was a pricey pb gun.

Sounds like an old impulse with a manifold reg. there were single triggers available.

bingo on the tribal. a twister tribal i googled trible and found the trible owners group and taadahh there she be. for my 89 dollars i got the gun an aci stubby tank, an old nitro duck tuff skin 4500 tank with the old school reg, stock barrel, what looks like a lapco 14" barrel. some old brasseagle pods, a very cool and working viewloader 9volt revolution. the gun leaks like a beeyotch, from out of the vert feed, (that cant be good) but it turned on and cycled until i ran out of air which i had less than 1000 psi when i hooked it up. i took pics on my cell and up loaded them to my facebook page but i dont know how to get them here. im old, like the flintstones, and we didnt have technology. lol. thanx for the help with this id have never figured it out haha

Pretty sure BBT "Bad Boyz Toyz" were the ones that put the Tribal on the market...I remember us getting a couple in back in the day and I'm pretty sure we got them from BBT.

Your right, I don't think we ever had any of the Toxic ones in, think we only had the BBT models in "and had them in forever"...If I remember right we damn near had to give them away to get rid of them.
