Review: First impression:

When I first saw the gun I was like "damn!" It had the sickest milling. When I picked it up it was like it just became my new best friend. It was really light!! Had really good balance stock.

First up is loudness- When I shot air through it it was loud but once you put paint through it it's lowers the noise. It's still loud but I play speed ball so it doesn't't really matter.

I aired it up and then I set my LP reg and I set it to about 75 psi. Then I started to shoot some paint through it. I know people said that it had lots of kick but that's a lie. I could barely feel anything. I also adjusted the settings on my board. I didn't change the bounce, mbounce, or anything else except for the shooting mode. The stock settings were fine with me because I just wanted to get use to it first. I later changed the trigger settings to my liking. I also decided to keep the stock barrel for the first time out. I was impressed with it. I only chopped one ball because of my loader. Otherwise it was shooting ball on ball.

After getting back from the field I took the ram out and re-lubed it up with some DOW 55. I also lubricated my bolt with some Tri-flow. I know the bolt is derlin but it keeps the wearing low on the bolt.

This is my first time with a timmy so I had to get use to it. I used a 68/4500 fiber tank and also a "egg" hopper. This made the gun seem back heavy but I don't really care much. The gun feels compact but the trigger and guard leaves a lot of room for your fingers. (even w/ gloves) I am going to get a siffi barrel to make it lighter so That'll make it even more back heavy but I'm not that concerned with weight since I'm a back player.

I've played with other timmies and I would have to say the newer 2006 (Gen. 4) timmies have had some great improvements. The frenzy board on my Infamous timmy is awesome. It has 7 modes: semi, ramp 2, ramp 3, smart ramp, full auto, 3 round burst, and 2 round burst.

Lastly I replaced the eyes on my timmy but I later found there was some material left from the manufacture so it wasn't a problem. I just cleaned it out and they worked fine. I actually installed the new eyes I had bought earlier. They're cool things. They're like the ones in the Ions with the visible beam so you know if your eyes are on. It's kind of hard to see the indicator on the board to see if your eyes are working properly. They were only $5 more than the normal ones. They're direct fit so no modes needed.

The last feature I liked was the clamping feedneck. It fits to any hopper so you can use the hopper you have. THe only thing I would recommend is to lock-tite the feedneck to the body of the timmy.

The only thing I wished they had done was to put a on/off on it. Most of the other high end guns today have them on them stock. But this also lets you choose the one you want or the one you already use.
Conclusion: If you have the money get it. You can find good deals on them used on paintball forums so don't feel like you have to get it new. Also the customer service is great. BLAST and Bob Long really assure quality and craftsmanship.
