Review: When I recieved this marker, I knew it was susposed to be a timmy but after taking it to a timmy expert at my local field we noticed that its a timmy-cocker mix. Internals are cockerish. Then we noticed how nice the Delrin is, super smooth, Aim wasn't blowing smoke with the electron microscope deal. After we set the gun up and started running paint we noticed that it only needs 85lbs to run. Also that the gun has a little kick nothing of bother though. But just like a Timmy its wicked fast and the Aim regs make it super consistent with velocity.

On a more technical aspect its only semi-auto!? You also can't hook this up to the computer to change dwell, its done with dip switches that select predetermined values. There are 5: 1 for eyes, 2 for ball in place delay, 2 for Rate of Fire Adjustment. Nothing fancy just basic and it works great. Also this has the best battery door of any gun I've seen so far, just one screw and it opens up! Just a regular 9V is needed and lasts for 20,000 or so cycles!

This thing is pretty efficient on a 68/45 I went through 1800 plus/minus 100 before it stoped shooting. Not the best i've seen but not the worst.

**Edit** Watch the output of the tank you're useing Aim claims operating above 500 or so will cause problems with the HPR. If your tanks output is too high, contact the manufacturer they should be able to send you a rebuild kit for the reg. or they might be able to do it them selves.
Conclusion: This is a great marker and for only $650 you CAN NOT find anything better. Its basic but has outstanding performance. Its a Top of the line Timmy without the Fancy Electronics seen in "Top End" markers. You wont find yourself with Buyers remorse on this one.

Where did you purchase this? I can not find the Blitz Aphix anywhere, but I can find the regular Aphix. However, I want the Blitz. So... where did you buy this?

Well.. i am just saying this not to be rude or anything but why would someone who has only been playing for 1 year buy a 750$ gun?
