The premier marker in paintball! Designed and built by Bob Long, a legend in the sport of competitive paintball. He sets strict build standards to insure the Empire Intimidator is one of the fastest and most accurate markers in the game. Extruded aircraft-grade aluminum bodies keep the Intimidator light and streamlined. Some of the most highly advanced circuit boards and sealed memory chips make up the Intimidator's internals, combined with a friction reducing micro switch trigger system, this marker is capable of over 20 BPS.
* Used by Bob Long's Oakland Assassins/Oakland Empire!
* 1.5" shorter than the Intimidator Alias Marker and other 2005 models
* 1.6 pounds (without a reg or barrel) which is 8 ounces lighter than the Alias
* FASTER - shorter bolt length has improved cycle time
* Completely new Ram and Poppet system - allows marker to operate at even lower pressures, virtually eliminating kick by using less force to move the ball. Lower pressure and lighter ram.
* New look to the LPR system
* Completely new ram bumper system. Ram cap now encloses the sleeve by threading onto it, verses into it like before
* Grip features an integrated rail system
* Accepts the same board and solenoid as existing intimidators
* Added functions on the LCD, including the option to modify your ramp starts and caps and multiple modes to meet various league standards
* Custom 14 inch barrel insures marksman's accuracy
The Bob Long Empire Intimidator 2006 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Reg, only if you want to.
Trigger may not fit some players, but it suits me perfectly.
Drop forward....once again, only if you want to.
Sharp edges, sort of hard to clean.
I'm not that good with maitenence and technical stuff, so I am just going to explain all of the good and bad things that happen on the field when this marker is in good working condition:
Relatively light, and compact. Easy to walk the trigger. Air Efficiency is pretty amazing. The eyes work well, the marker is very quiet, the stock feedneck actually works. ITS FAAAST.
Sharp corners (not too exposed, in a hard to reach place if your holding your marker correctly. Balls MAY chop if the eyes aren't in good condition, but thats the same with a lot of markers. In terms of cleaning, it has some hard to reach places.
This marker looks amazing and performs even better.
If you don't want to spend all of your money on a new model, with all of the fancy crap on it, go with the timi. Its a pretty decent 'gun in terms of cleaning and maitnence. Good, and efficient. Go for it.

On/Off ASA (Does not come with one)
Tedious Board Settings
Torpedo Reg Break-in Period
I got this gun new for $600 and figured its a very good deal on a legit High-end gun (the Promaster is consider as a Mid-level High-end gun). When i first shot this gun running at around 60 psi, i kept getting velocities at around 180. fortunetly, one of the guys at the chrono knew a thing or two about timmys. ive never owned a timmy, so i didnt quite know what i was doing. after playing around with the HPR and LPR, i managed to get it to shoot at around 290 fps. the torpedo reg needs a long break-in period before getting consistant. even now, im getting spikes at nearly +/- 8. performance wise, it is very fast. settings allow for no bounce. it feels very comfortable and is fairly accurate, though a barrel upgrade might be a good idea. i had an occasional chop here and there, so the eyes could be better (an after-market board can give better eye logic). maintenace is pain, especially with the poppit o-rings (most noticably the MIDDLE o-ring). settings on the board can be tedious, but relatively easy to work with.
All in all, its great high-end gun. i will say though, this is NOT for someone who is mechanically challanged because this gun requires a LOT of care. taking it apart can be very complex for a noob, but any experienced player will love this gun.

Not that "special", onyx out now, accuracy
This gun is very nice. My freind bought one and i have occasionally played with this a few times over the last year. The weight and speed are very nice. My freind is a back player and im a front man, and the gun made an easy transition to each position. I heard he had some problems with the gun but he got them fixed and the gun is running again.
When i say its not that special i mean its not the best in any category, but it is near teh top 3 in each category, making it a good overall performer. I noticed the odd ball (using evil so it wasnt the paint) and accuracy wasnt the greatest, but dont let it stop you from buying this gun.
Overall this gun is very good, it can shoot faces with teh best of them. If you can find this gun cheaper than other high ends dont be afraid to buy it cause you wont be dissopointed. i wanna give it an 8.5 but...
hardshell bolt- makes alot more air efficient and quiet
cp reg- makes more air efficient
techna katana trigger- makes alot faster, but not necessary
virtue- more consisten, faster, easier/quicker to use than stock board
Very very light
Very air efficient
Kind of loud
Dosent shoot through paint well
Barrel breaks if paint isnt very hard
i bought this gun used, but it came in great condition. i have always wanted one and i love it. i went to my field (im friends w/ 2 timmy techs there) and they checked it out, they loved it. i lubed my reg (cp), my ram, and put a virtue board in it.. i air it up and it shot beautifully. if you keep this gun lubed it will work flawlessly.
first round i go out and the gun is shootin great. i adjusted the output pressure to about 78-79, i shot some into the chrono and i got 250, 251, 250, 251, 251, 251. very consistent. i went onto the field and the gun had great accuracy. its so light and easy to run with.
***after about 3 hours of play, however, just before a round started, i turned the air on, turn my hopper on, turn the gun on and hit the trigger...BAM, my gun just started shootin (like full auto), but leaking from bolt/ram/breach area. i took it to my friend.. he lowered my output pressure a little bit and took my bolt out and put it back in.. and it shot fine.. still not sure what that was***
i was usin tork that day, and i noticed the gun chopped every once in a while. i'm told gen 4s are not wat so ever easy on paint, so DONT USE BRITTLE PAINT in this gun.. plus, it dosent shoot through barrel breaks well.
Overall, i love this gun and couldnt even think of selling it. I want anyone who is thinkin about buying one, to go out and buy it. put upgrades on it, lube it well, and u wont ever want to get rid of it. Its a great all around gun. I'd give it a 9.5 b/c i did experience a problem w/ it.

2006 empire timmy,cp asa,freak with stiffy tip,hyper inline reg [dye]
new reg, new barrel
Great once you get the bugs worked out
Can b a pain in the ass
Ok i bought my 06 3 months ago because i own a 2005 alias timmy and that gun is the best ever i had 0 problems with it.
but my new 2006 i have had lots of problems with
1] right out of the box it leaked i am a gyn teck at a field so i took it apart and the poppet oring had come off so i put it back on and it leaked gain so i called the teks @ bob long they said they would send me a new poppet no chareg. i live in fla the part came from cali 5 dya ship. when the new part came in i put it in my gun and guess what it leaked i was so pissed. so then i had the idea that it was non the poppet it was he reg.
the reg was puttin out 800 psi with the adgustment screw backed all the way out. the i grabbed the reg off of my dm4 and put it on there it shot beautful but it chopped p8nt.
agin i was pissed because i had a tourney the next weekend. so i took the eyes out and looked @ them the wire was not soddred on correct so i had 2 fix that also. so i got the problems worked out just in time 4 the tourney. when i got there aired it up and the poppet oring had come off agin [the bob long tecks ssaid it happens sometimes] so i threw it in the truck and brought out old relible [my 05 alais] and we won first place but becide that.
Easy to Clean
Nothing that I have found yet.
This is by far the best gun i have ever owned shot and won't be selling it for a while great effiecientcy vary Consistent and Incredibly Fast. A person who really wants a fast gun that is worth the money, they should definatley look into this gun if you want the best of thre best
Halo w/ Victory Board or equivalent hopper
Very light and small for easy maneuvering
Very, very fast
Hard to keep up with
Recently bought this gun and I'm very pleased with its performance. I was getting tired of my impulse not being able to keep up with me, so I thought it was time for an upgrade and I definitely made the right decision. Some people don't like the empire milling and say some parts of it are too sharp, but that's all personal preference and I'm more than happy with the default milling. Rips out of the box, but I strongly reccomend the upgrades posted above.
One of the best markers out there to date. Super accurate at 150 feet and still decent past that. If you're looking to buy an intimidator, this is the one to get.
DMC with a DM6 trigger frame
ION, wich really isnt similar.....
06 empire intimadator
16 inch stiffi barrel
empire reloader b
crossfire 68/4500 hp tank
check it on/off
Really fast, light, accurate, efficeint, compact, quieter than an ego
Sharp milling, but it looks really cool, so its no big deal
this gun so far, has been really good. I havent had anything go wrong woth it yet, but i had to buy a faster loader, to keep up with it. The stock barrel is accurate, but you deffinatley should look into a new one, I just bought a Stiffi barrel for mine, and it made it so quite, and more accurate, and I also tried my dads ultra lite on my gun, and it was also really good. This gun is fast, and the trigger is really nice, so far i have shot 17 bps on semi, over just 15 with the trigger that came on my alias. This gun is sweet.
A person who really wants a fast gun that is worth the money, they should definatley look into this gun.... it is a good investment.

When i bought this gun like 2 months ago i took my 2 best friends that have been into it as long as i have i i tried out every single gun they had the angel g7 fly , the ego's , the shockers,the new dm6 all the sickest guns ....... and when i got too the timmy i was like this is the one i want it was by far in my opinion the best looking the best feeling the fastest shooting gun it was the best all around gun !
I give this product a 10 out of 10 this is the best gun i have ever shot and when i go too the field everyone else seems too think so 2 ! anyone looking for a real monster i suggest look into one !
Great Stock Parts
Great Ball-On-Ball Accuracy
I had the pleasure of testing this gun 1 week ago and I must say that this gun is a perfect match for me. I am currently trying to trade one of my markers for this gun. Once I pulled the trigger of this gun once, I fell in love with it. It has great stock parts and it has great ball-on-ball accuracy. If I had to choose between this gun and any other marker, I would choose the 2006 Intimidator.
If you are looking for a marker, look no further than this Intimidator.
