Question Any info on this KAPP cocker and LE Impulse I picked up? (huge pics)

I got this with the intent of making it a pump, but have since been spending too much on firearms to pay for it and probably won't be getting back into paintball any time soon.

I wanted to see what y'all could tell me about what's original and what's not, what kind of price you think I could get for it, etc. Here's the gun porn:





Similar answers requested for this guy:





I have a stand-alone female Max-Flo and an out-of-hydro MaxFlo system for the Impulse:




Anything special that I should know about either one? What magnitude of rarity I'm looking at? Should I keep 'em? I know the KAPP is a rare bird, but there are folks on here that know more about it than me, so what do y'all think? I'd be happy for whatever info/appraisal I could get for any or all of it : Thanks ladies and gents.

the cocker is a KAPP obviously, i think it was the earth series of annos. i believe that's Ocean or water. they had Lava and a couple others. looks in great condition, no changes and not additions from stock.

the impulse is what it is, a pre-release edition. nothing special, except for the barrel threads. SP didn't finalize the barrel threads on them, and they used cut down shocker threads. finding another barrel is going to very hard, unless you have the shocker barrel cut down to fit. it was SP's way of making more money, since you had to buy a new barrel for it, and couldn't use a shocker barrel. the stickers are just stickers, nothing to them. someone that knows more about the SP and Impulses could tell you more if and when you open it up, but i'm dead positive on the threading.

if you want more info, click on me. since that article is describing more of your impulse than the later production models.

The cocker is a 99 spec Kapp body. The anno pattern was called "blue marble", but has been nicknamed "water", as the red marble was called "lava", a green marble was called "confetti" and there is no nickkname I know for the yellow marble.

The blue was the most common of the the 4. According to Sean Scott there were @ 400 or so body kits produced in that color. There is not a "stock" configuration, as Kapp allowed you to choose your own trigger frame, front end, and other options. The matched trigger frame is nice, as it is a rare find. I am surprised the freak front isn't matched also, as you could get match annoed freaks, or boomsticks.

Thank you guys, it's good to hear that the gun could be optioned and therefor is likely a little more factory original than I had suspected (though I have my doubts about the brass 4-way ).
