Review: First off i just want to say that i LOVE the looks of this gun. the white anno is truly white...not grey like some others and i think the gun is just plain sick looking!

I got to my field and put on a cp asa , my 45/45 centerflag, halo, and stiffi 14" .89 barrel. This setup is soooooooo small and light! It is very close to your body and for me it is very comfortable (im about 5'8)

I was shooting xball bronze (awesome paint) that had been sitting in pods in my bag for about 4 days because i didnt have anything else. This might have been the cause of some of my problems. I shot about ten balls until i saw paint explode everywhere out of the barrel. continued to shoot the hopper and paint was just chopping and flying everywhere.

At this poing i was pretty scared! took off the stiffi and looked in the breech. it was pretty clean but the stiffi was nasty. i decided to use the assasins stock barrel that came with it and it shot fine! a little loud and innacurate but i will probably get a cp kit later. i dont think timmys like stiffis very well! my lasoya didnt have this bad of a problem but it didnt work to well with it.

With the 10" stock assasins barrel...

ACCURACY- it was decent...not the greatest but i didnt expect much out of this barrel. in a stream about ten balls would go pretty straight and the next four would swerve off about four feet.

FEEL- love it. i have never held a gun so comfortable when it has a tank and hopper on it. i just love the size and weight. some may need a 68 to be comfortable with it (longer arms)

KICK- the gun kicked a lot at first. the lpr was set stock at about 75. i shot a hopper continuously (sp?) and the barrel rose pretty quickly! i had to pull the gun back down towards the end of the hopper. i decided to take the lpr down to 50. this solved a lot of my problems! very little kick...not too much to matter in a game and hardly any drop off! i havent had much time to tinker with it but this seems to work!

CONSISTENCY- i chronoed the gun after i adjusted the lpr to 50. it was about +/- 15. turned the reg up a little bit and was shooting about 250...255...270...264...260...270. i cant complain about this...i know the reg needs to be broken in. if all else fails ill just get a cp!

EFFICIENCY- didn't shoot enough paint to tell yet but it seems to be very good! i had 4000 in my 45/45 and shot four pods. i had about 2500 left in my tank!

SPEED- wow...this gat is F-A-S-T. keep in mind i havent touched any settings on the board and debouce settings are stock! i like the feel of the trigger...its a little stiff but taking out the spring can fix that! or i might just get a cp slingblade. anyways, i started shooting a full hopper at a decent speed...i woudl say around ten bps...then i decided to see how fast it could go. i have a v35'd halo and pretty fast fingers so i wuold say it was rippin pretty good! when you shoot this gun it just seems like it wants to go faster and faster! i think there was a little bounce involved but everytime i mvoed my fingers a little faster the gun would just take off! the faster you walk the trigger, the faster it shoots and the more bouncy it gets! i like this because youcan really control your speed it seems.

hope this helped you guys who are interested!

Conclusion: Awesome gun...i would recommend it to anyone who likes open bolt design and is willing to dish out the cash. i haven't been a timmy owner for long but i think im sucked in now! 06 Empire timmy is small, light, efficient, turns heads, and fast!
