Upgrades:
Stock barrel is a bit small.. cant really wrap around with it. If you prefer a longer barrel I suggest that.

Rail/Uni- doesnt come with one

Fast Loader- because you'll need one to squeeze every bit of performance out of this marker


Strengths: Fast, efficient, easy to mantain, easy to adjust trigger, nice milling, eyes, price
Weaknesses: Will spend more money on paint :(.
Review: This marker is an incredible piece of equipment (as is any other intimidator). Its been very reliable... I am a very aggressive player, and I always manage to land on my equipment, or bang them on the ground when I dive, but this timmy still works, and how well it works... There are many stregnths of this marker...


Speed- this thing is a beast. Its easy to rip long stringer of 15+ bps. In todays paintball games, the speed of your marker is very important, this timmy delivers more then enough speed to keep up with ANY other marker on the market. Whether you are a front player needing to take 1-3 quick shots when snap shooting, or a back player that needs to hold down lanes, the speed of this timmy will not dissapoint you.

Efficient- This marker is very good on air when set up right. However, many fields now give free air, and having an efficient gun may not be a big strength. However, if you play back, and shoot a lot of paint during a game, I assure you that you will not run out of air.

Easy to mantain- Having an easy to maintain gun is important to many. I dont want to have to mess around too much with it, and have to spend hours cleaning the gun after I play. This timmy, thankfully, is not like that. All you will have to do after a day of playing, is take apart the regs, lube them, take out the bolt and ram, and lube them. Put it back together and go shoot faces. This should not take more then 5 minutes. It may be tricky getting the bolt back in at first, but you will get used to it.

Easy trigger adjustments- The trigger is very easy to change to your liking. It has 3 screws, one is for the back stop, one is for the activation point, and one is for the stiffness of the trigger. I took the spring out of my trigger, and now my trigger is very light and short.... perfect.

Nice Milling- The milling of this gun is incredible. Behind the feedneck it curves inward, and has some teardrop style cuts in the curve. At the end of the bolt is a diagonal cut, which is very nice. The bottom tube has a sort of wavy milling. The anodizing has some very minor flaws, mostly in the fading part where the two colors meet, but it will not be noticable unless you hold the gun up very close to your face, and then look very hard at the spot.

Eyes- The eyes are breakbeam style, which means paint color does not effect them at all. Eyes keep your bolt from slicing a paintball in two, which leads to inaccuracy and jamming. No one wants to chop a ball and have there gun jam while bunkering someone, thankfully eyes will prevent something like this from happening.

Price- This timmy is only $750 dollars. All of these that are made in 2004 come with Frenzy, a clamping feedneck and a different lpr. If you want a timmy, and cant afford an alias, definatly get this.

Those are the strengths that I thought of.. but it does have a weakness...

PAINT- You will shoot a lot more paint with this marker. I have gone from having a case last me 10-12 games... to having a case last me 7-8 games (im a front player btw).
Conclusion: I love it, try it, and I bet you will love it too.
