Review: I'd like to start out by saying how fantastically impressed I was at the simplicity of the intimidator. I know that they are basically an offshoot of a spyder, but didn't realize that they were basically just as simple. The simplicity of the intimidator is really one of it's great features. It only has two moving parts, the ram and the bolt. These are the only things you really need to maintain on a regular basis and it takes about 5 minutes to take them out, lube them and put them back together. Probably the next best thing is the fact that this gun needs ZERO upgrades. Not just to shoot well, but in general. I do like the CP trigger that I have more than the stock, but the stock trigger works well too. A feedneck is also nice, but the stock twist lock is fairly adequate. The stock SOB board is kind of lack luster, but since then BL has come out with the Frenzy board, which came stock on the late models of 2k2 Timmies, and there are many choices for aftermarket boards.

The intimidator really performs on the field. There is a little bit of kick, but nothing compared to something like an impulse. As with most high end electros, it'll lay down streams of paint just as fast as you can pull the trigger, and the anti-chop eyes work fantastic in eliminating choppage. The only thing I didn't particularly like about the 2k2 Timmies is the distance between the frame and reg. It's a bit long for my taste, but all in all feels very nice in your hands.
Conclusion: Great gun, can be had very cheap used these days. All in all I give it an 8/10
