The GZ Intimidator was designed exclusively for Team Ground Zero. Knowing that a top professional team would be relying on this marker, Bob Long made sure to include everything a top player would need. First, it has a lightened body and custom milling. Playing all day with a heavy gun is no way to win a tournament. Second, the GZ Intimidator comes with a vertical regulator to fine-tune the velocity and prevent velocity spikes. Also, a pressure gauge comes standard so you know what the operating pressure of the marker is. Most important is the trigger, and there is no doubt about it the GZ Intimidator is lightning fast! With three distinct adjustments on the trigger you are sure to find a setting just to your liking.
The Bob Long Ground Zero Intimidator is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Timmy GZ | WAS 2.7 | Dye Boomstick | ANS Gen-X Reg | Egg II | CP Adjustable Ram Cap | Bulldog 47/3000 Tank | Reaper Trigger
WAS Board, Adjustable Ram cap, a new reg if you feel like it
No chops in "Forced" mode
Stock reg (I didn't like it)
1st shot dropoff
Let me start by saying that this is the best gun I've ever used. I've owned several blowbacks and tested cockers and Shockers (just as accurate/reliable/consistent but Shockers are gas hogs).
The accuracy on this gun is incredible if you have the right size paint. It will shoot within a very small radius at about 100 ft. Consistency is a plus too, the ball goes almost the same distance every time. If you put the gun in forced mode you will almost NEVER chop a ball because of your bolt. One may break in the barrel, but that's a different story. The gun is also very efficient. With my 47/3000 i get around 700+ shots. This gun is also one of the quietest I've ever heard.
I didn't like the consistency of the Torpedo, but it's good. Don't buy another one unless you've got cash to spare. There is no LCD in the gun, so you have to program if via the LED, which is a pain. There is also some 1st shot dropoff. Not a big problem, but annoying.
You MUST MUST MUST MUST buy an adjustable ram cap. This will insure that the ball always breaks the eyes because the bolt isn't putting it in a weird position. Buy this gun, you won't regret it.
GZ Timi with full freak, 68ci 4500 psi maxflo and ricochet
fast hopper, even though the gz has an eye its never fun to misfire or miss that one shot that can end the game
The gun is really fast and accurate. The gun has an eye that only allows that gun to shoot 1 ball per second when there is no paint in the breach. The gun is very light yet durable. The trigger is easy to adjust.
THe foregrip is moved too fat to the front making the gun uncomfortable to shoot sometimes, it might just be me in that case. THe gun also has a bigger kick than my angels but its not too bad not to play with it. Changin the battery is a hassle when u have to take off the grips and then the left side cover. The batter is also too close to the bottom of the grip frame and sometimes a long screw that holds on a bottom line will go into the battery and kill it.
Overall good gun, i would have made some minor changes to it if i was Bob Long. Shoots great tho and doesnt chop, only occasional breaks. Fast and accurate.

A halo b or a evo 2 is a must.
This thing is amazing. Accuracy of a cocker and the speed of an angel. Cost effective.
The only bad thing is the amount of paint you will shoot and I guess that's not all that bad:)
Great marker! I've had the pleasure of shooting some really nice guns and I believe this is my favorite yet! Very fast in fact its faster than any angel I have shot, and as accurate as a cocker. Everyone says its very quiet, I'm just happy I haven't been on the recieving end yet. Its also effiecent. I could shoot a hopper and 3 pods on a 2500 fill out of a 68-4500 tank.
I believe this is the best gun (timmays in general) on the market. Go ahead and get one, you know you want it:)
At Ben Davis field at a rookie tourney, someone let me use this extraordinary gun. I put on my halo and let this baby rip. I barely touched the trigger and then started walking it easy. I got it at least up to 18 balls a second very easily. It is a bit on the heavy side though with nitro and everything else. The feed neck also has some problems. My egg didn't even stay on so i kept the halo on.
Matrix- It was a lot heavier and more ineffecient. Ball on ball accuracy though.
Angel Speed- This gun had a big disadvantage in that it had no eyes stock, but it was extremely fast and I found it easier to snap with. I never once chopped even with no eyes.
Other timmies- The new models feel tighter and a lot more balanced, but in the 2k2 generation, this timmy is on the same level as the rest. Shoots just the same.
The rest is really preference. Stock this gun works great for me, but if I were to pick up some Violent Products delrin pistons, I have a feeling I could go a bit easier on the lpr and reduce the kick and sound signature a bit.
Fast, very light, effecient, easy to maintain.
Not that it has effected me ever, but feels like a toy (kind of).
I have owned almost any high end gun out there, be it angels, matrices, and several timmies. I keep coming back to timmies for some reason (this is my fourth intimidator). I get a kick at how simple these things are, and yet how great they shoot. The operation is simple enough to understand, and I find them pretty easy to take apart.
The maintenance isn't bad at all. Every other case, I'll re-lube my ram and after about a month, my reg pistons. It doesn't take a whole lot of skill at cleaning guns to do so. The barbs can be picky but I've only ever broken one, and it wasn't even me who broke it. Just be careful with them and they won't give you any trouble. My intimidator has never gone down on me.
The thing I like most about Intimidators is that they all pretty much shoot the same. What's good about this is that you can buy a cheaper Intimidator, like a GZ, and put a few upgrades on it, and it'll rip. At least I know mine does.
Did I mention they shoot fast?
I'd recommend this timmy or any other. No matter what, you're getting a solid gun.

tippman 98, reliable but no comparison. E99 Spyder fast but not as fast as the Timmy.
GZ polished red to black fade, stock barrel, eVolution 2 loader, trigger upgrade
barrel, an air tank that can be regulated down to 500 psi
I decided to make a big jump after using a stock tippman 98 for the last four years, Mainly because I wanted to start playing more seriously than I have been.
I went with the recommendation of my local store and decide on an Intimmidator
I wanted to get an Ironmen or a Dragon, but settled on the GZ for its simplicity. It will shoot just as fast the Ironmen or Dragon but for less money.
I bought an E99 for my daughter, I thought it was fast, that was until I bought the GZ for myself. I love the way it shoots (fast). Now I just need to improve my skills to keep up with the GZ.
I was amazed during the first day of use that a ball got jammed in the bolt but did not break just a bit tweaked, but that only happened once. I shot about 1300 rounds that day.
I found the owner manual to be pretty detailed with schematics and directions on disassembly and assembly , and a geat section on trouble shooting.
The first day that I used the GZ it developed on air leak, I cycled it a few times and the air leak seemed to stop . The second time I took it out I charged the air tank and I could hear a more serious air leak. Upon disassembly I found that the solenoid was leaking. So I was not able to use it and had to resort to using the Tippman 98 again.
The tigger grip area is really tight on the inside so care must taken with the length of the screw that are used to secure th drop forward and the grips (however the owners manual does point this out)
I love the way the GZ shoots, I am hoping that adding a barrel upgrade will dial in the accuracy a little tighter. Like anything else the GZ needs some preventative maintenance (cleaned and greased) to keep it at optimum level.
I am hoping that the solenoid problem is just a small gliche that can be ironed out. .
I feel that the GZ is easily self servicable with the exception of the solenoid (the owners manual advises against disassembly of the solenoid) which needs to be replaced as a unit. I don't know how expensive that will be once the warranty expires. So I am going to give the GZ a 7 rating (for now) until I see what is going to happen with its reliablility of the solenoid.

Well I traded a Mac-1 Anihhalator with tons of up's for this puppy. I had to get a new solenoid, full set of barbs, and a new membrane pad, but after those it works flawlessy!!!! My set up is the Timmy, a CP one piece, a VL Revy, and a Crossfire 68/4500. So with a Revy as you all know all I can shoot is 12-14 BPS.....Oh well, this gun is freeken awsome and I would recommend this gun to anyone who can find one for less than $350'ish.
Awsome gun, rips just as fast as a brand new gun!!!!
