I've shot pretty much everything. Ego 5's,6's, sl66's, nexus', shockers(too many to name) cyborgs. angel's, many timmies, all types of matrixes, you name it chances are i've shot it(for the record i haven't owned all of these guns just shot them)
2k5 Dark timmy
custom clammied classic
hybrid contract killer grips
uhh i think thats it
cp reg, new trigger, maybe a new bolt. thats it
Fast, reliable, and easy to maintain.
None that I can think of.
well i've had this gun for about a year now and i've finally got around to writing a review lol. This is probably my favorite gun that i've ever shot. So when i first got it, I took it out of the box..Damn the silver to red fade looks awesome.. I don't hesitate to slap on my cp on off, put a fitting on the reg, put on some macroline, put in a battery and get rollin. I clamp my reloader into the feedneck, and throw in some paint. Well being the person i am i studied everything about the gun before i got it, I hurried up and put it in uncapped ramp just to see how fast it would go(of course this was after i set the lp reg to 70 psi). As soon as starting shooting the gun took off! it was oh so smooth, fast and had no kick. I love this gun. The lucky 15 is the best barrel i own. I even use it over my stiffi.
If you have the chance don't hesitate to pick one up.

I've shot almost everything high-end
Ego's are the comparable and I'd say it would come down to preference as to which is better
CP Roller Trigger
Function six shooter adjustable ramcap
Crossfire LP tank
Latest Frenzy software or a Infamous or Virtue board
ditch the torpedo reg for a CP
get a barrel kit
Some form of a t-lock feedneck
Efficient after break-in
I have now owned 2 dark timi's and love both of them. They shoot very well and after breaking in the regulators they get great air efficiency, I've had near a case off of my 70/45 with my setup and lpr tweaking (265 fps). These markers shoot very fast, I can easily attain 15 bps. The function bolt is awesome since there are no o-rings to oil and replace, and the adjustable ram cap is a must for any timi. My one irk with it is setting the regulators. For best performance you need to reset the lpr at the beginning of a day of play and then never turn your air off. This can be a hassle but will yield excellent efficiency and velocity consistancy. Very easy to maintain, simply pull the bolt out, unscrew the ram cap and tap the ram out, lube, and replace. I lube the poppet by putting a little extra grease on the end of the ram, which saves the trouble of getting to it.
If you're looking at timi's, consider the dark and save yourself the extra money on upgrades that it comes stock with. I give it a 10 for a great shooting gun that's worth the money you pay for it.
05 Ego - much lighter a little bit slower, well balanced.
Angel 1 - not as light as the Ego but keeps up with the Timmy, possibly faster.
DM6 - Lighter, smaller, flat out fast and accurate.
VS3 - Just as fast, probably faster and a little lighter.
Spyder VS3 (back up marker)
Halo with Angry board and Hybrid Contract Killer back plate.
Lucky 15 barrel kit
Max Flo 68ci 5000psi Evil Scion
New Designz roller trigger
For this gun you definately need a fast loader. Probably a Halo or Reloader B, a Vlocity would be insane.
If you want you could put on a different trigger and a board if thats what you want but the performance is insane.
Comes with a Lucky 15!
Difficult to clean when paint is broken.
This is my friend's gun but we did a swap for 1 month as he was considering buying an Ego and I really love everything made by Warped Sportz... I played with this gun like crazy. I play the snake and so I do dives and really tested the guns limits. I found that it was excellent for snap shooting and high speed (I was getting about 19 bps) which is really good for both front and back players. I did notice though that the gun is ridiculously heavy and has some sharply milled edges which is not nice when you are tucking into a ball in the snake! Otherwise this gun is fantastic as stock and is a performance tuned gun right out of the cool Bob Long Dark box...
You know you want it...
This is an excellent gun and it will keep up with practically everything on the tourney scene. I give it an 8 as it is getting on in years and is heavy. If you aren't a fan of this gun don't give up! Keep trying others and I really recommend Planet Eclipse Egos... In coclusion this gun is fast, accurate, sexy and HEAVY. This gun is extremely reliable.
Have fun ballin' and destroy the competition!! XD :P
Light, high ROF, attractive, low profile, balanced.
Function trigger stinks, function bolt stinks.
- This is a machine gun with style but at a high price (retail like $1300). This marker is truly a warped master piece with tight milling, excellent weight balance, sexy anno job, a great barrel, and Semi-Ramp-3 Shot-Full Auto fire modes. It may take a little getting used to the intimidator style grip with the wide lower grip(battery sits funny) but with the marker being so light i rerely ever grip the frame with my full hand.
- Marker is super fast as far as ROF with the 127.4 Frenzy board stock( my settings are: dwell-7.5-8, lpr-75-80, bip-0.1, delay-00, bolt-10, mbounce-00
debounce-2.0) Over 22bps :) Avg 19 in semi with Critical Trigger.
- Bob Long torpedo reg is milled different as well and provides for incredible shot to shot consistancy even when throwing ropes of paint. Velocity changes of about +3/-3 on average!!! FSDO is almost nonexistant.
- I found that the Function trigger is a real draw back to the performance of this marker being bluky and slow compared to any roller trigger and the magnetic trigger mod is an absolute must especially being a backman like me. Also i did see a bit of improvement after replacing the Function bolt with a Shocktech SuperFly.
- The Stock grip panels also need to go IMHO as i feel that the are to thick being nearly twice the thickness of a Contract Killer or Empire grip sets.
All in all this is one hell of a marker. I would reccommend buying this secondhand if possible as they are usally half price on ebay of pbnation and for 1300$ it should already have a roller trigger and magnetic return but that my opinion. Its gets a nine due to the stock trigger.
If you can own it and you like intimidators you should get this and thats that!

Ive had my dark timmy for a while and i like it great guns and worth the $700 dollars i also have a ton-ton shocker and an sl66 ice cuba ego, and 2 angels. Of coarse the ego is better but the price of the dark with the performance is great
2004 dark timmy
12" SP all american
halo b with rip drive
noise (its quiet)
Feels blocky at times
Grips aren't that comfortable
so i bought this gun used for about 500 (EXTREMELY good price) and took it out a week after. this thing freakin rips up the field! it is very easy to shoot a lot of paint (good or bad, you decide) and attracts a lot of attention beacuse its dead sexy. only problem i had with it was that it was losing pressure during some games after i started shooting but that was an electrical problem. but all in all it is a freaking awesome gun for efficiency, speed, and just overall ownage.
Amazing. Im giving this gun a 9 because its not perfect but it still rips
Function trigger is a little sloppy, hard to get on.
Well I've always had my eye on Warped Sportz markers. When they produced the dark timmy, I was drooling. I saved my money and finally bought one. Out of the box it was so beautiful, I couldn't wait to get it to the field. The milling and anno job was flawless, no visible toolmarks.
So I finally get there and gas it up. First thing I notice is how low the operating pressure is ~65psi. Without messing with the board settings (Dwell, Delay, etc.) It shot ropes of paint despite the tricky function trigger. The consistency was amazing as well with about +/-5 fps over the chrono. The stock barrel was alright, a little loud but once the boomstick was on, it was sooo quiet.
I gave the eyes a real workout by putting an a agitating loader. Not shock here, not one break even with crap paint.
In the shop, I played with the settings of the gun to get some real speed and efficiency. I was looking up popular upgrades to timmys and came across the VP pistons. I ordered some from the local field. After putting them in and trying them out, the efficiency was increased, and the operating pressure was dropped rediculously low.
All in all, this is a machinegun that not only performs but looks hot as well. Worth every penny. If you find one, buy it! You will not be disappointed.
Like I said, worth every penny. It's a little bigger then the egos and angel ones out there, but no less as impressive. I have no complaints about this marker. Buy one!

My friend couldnt go to practice so he let me use his gun that he bought off ebay for $430. A DARK TIMMY! my friends and i were testing how fast we could shoot, and i realized that the trigger was kind of tight. Warped Sports could have made it a little bigger, but that was no big deal.
the place we went to though uses dark paint, so my Halo was out. i was forced to put a gravity feed on it :( so i went to put my N2 on and i got half way in when all of a sudden the rail above it started scraping against my tank, and i didnt have time to adjust a slide. especially when i had no idea about the specific parts of the gun, and i didnt want to fiddle with my friends gun. so i used a N2 tank from the field.
i had my gun againt the net, and i was standing sooo far out. i felt kind of exposed. the gun is like a hand cannon. you dont get much bounce off the trigger, but thats no biggie. the field paint must have been .706 or something because almost every single ball broke in everyones gun, so thats no the guns fault. but i was forced to play up front with the cannon. i still won, but it was really uncomfortable! i could get used to it though. its nothing bad, just a personal opinion on comfort.
Just when i got an egg on the gun, it started to rain, so i had to pack up for the day.
This gun is awesome, a little tight in the trigger, but i could get used to it. its pretty big on the end, and the rail is kind of odd
i gave it a 9/10 because nothings perfect, but this comes sooo close.
I wish there was a 9.5
Trigger. Still works but id get a critical or something similair.
First off ive gotta say it's consistant as hell i was shooting -3+3 the whole day at my last tourney! very accurate, ive got the freak meh still really on though. its as fast as anyone really could ever need tournament wise, um its sexier than my girlfriend. well balanced, no kick,really quiet, I run my pressure at about 65-75psi. warped sportz did a very good thing with this gun! so far the best gun ive owned. and most reliable, the gun works for you not the other way around.
Honestly its a rad gun, ive had problems with so many other markers, but this one oh boy! Just go buy one and you'll fall in love to i promise!

This gun is sick. Got this because my DM4 w/X-94 needs to be lubed pretty regularly and lubing the bolt in between games can be a pain if you have quick turn arounds in a tournament. This gun has the efficiency I need and doesn't need to be lubed all that often, so it's great for what I needed. I tried out just about every gun before I decided on this one, and I love it. Looked at Egos, but they are trendy and overpriced for what you get. The gen3 intimidators are a great value and give you excellent performance in a light and compact platform. I highly recommend this gun for anyone who plays back and needs a gun that can sling lots of paint with minimal maintenance.
Great gun, and the price is right. Nothing is a 10, so a 9 is what I rate this gun.
