Bought this new. Opened the box and wow, what a beautiful gun! Evil did a great job on the gun! The milling was nicely done and the anno was excellent. Came with an excellent manual (color), lots of spare orings, all the allen wrenches needed to tear it down, and a HUGE 5oz tube of lube! Oh yeah, a nice Evil condom too :)
Knowing that the gun required a 3-5k shot break in, I attached a tank and dry fired it until it was empty. Refilled and repeated the process. Did this about 10 times to make sure the gun was reasonably broken in. After firing 7-8000 shots in such a short time, I got very comfortable with the trigger. Short (to say the least) and had a nice tension on it. I didn't see any need at this point to adjust it.
It was time to shoot some paint. Mounted my ReloaderB into the feedneck (it uses orings to hold the loader in--my non sanded fit perfectly. Note they provide other size orings incase you've sanded yours down) and went to the chrono.
First three shots were 284, 286, 284. Off to a good start! Then I ripped off a beautiful string of 50 or so. Thing shoots darts! Only thing I noticed was a couple of the balls didn't go the distance...some sort of drop off...part of the break in? Loved the Pipe :)
Next it was time to adjust some of the settings. I turned the "debounce" all the way down, adjusted the LPR and dwell (just to see how it performed), and shot off another string. Still just as impressive! Did notice a bit less kick to the gun, so I'm guessing a few days of play and I'll have it down to almost nothing.
One thing I really liked was the ease in which you can program. It was very easy to adjust through the LED (similiar to WAS). My fav feature is the no ROF cap with eyes on and the ADJUSTABLE ROF when the eyes are off. This is a huge feature to have so that you can adjust your "blind" ROF to your loader.
At the end of the day I ripped off a few more strings, and the gun was putting all the balls in the same area. Guess the break in was a bit more than people have been saying. Not a big deal.
Finally, the only real complaint about the gun is the trigger frame design. I have large hands and the trigger guard is small, and the reverse angel trigger is something that really takes getting use to. If they'd keep the trigger design, angle is straight down like it was on the proto-type PIMP kits they had last year, this would be a 10 gun.
All in all, this is a great gun for the money! It really is a timmy/impy hybrid, taking the best of both guns and incorporating them into a fantastic package. Great job Evil!

if you have the money, go for the shocker, but i've seen these pimps go for $600 on actionvillage, shockers are around the $800-$1000 range, so for the money, i'd go for the pimp, what you save i'd use on a nice HPA tank or hopper, if you dont alraedy have these. but you have to ask your self, 3 years from now, can you see your self still playing with a pimp, or do you think you'll end up buying a shocker down the road?
