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.

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!!!!
hyper 2 reg
all american barrel
cp on off
reg , go with aomething other than a hyper 2 because it doesnt work well with the gun
No modes on stock board
if you want a fast, accurate gun that preforms well over the chrono, this is the gun for you (as long as youre not afraid to do a little tinkering). This gun will shoot great for you, as ong as you know how to take care of it. the legendary reliability problems of timies still apply, however, the older heavier models are fairly good if mantained properly.this gun isnt for the 4 foot tall guy sliding into snake. this, like most old timmies, is a much better back or mid gun. to heavy and long for a sake player, but a flawless preformer for a big back guy who can hold on to the gun and is really looking for the raw speed the gun can offer.
this is a great gun if you have a good air tech neer by or can do the mantinence your self. Any problems you have are usualy nothing more expensive than a barb or o-ring, which the customer service department at bob long technologies provided me for free, even though I bought the thing used. the only real knock I have is reliability, which is why I give it a 9.
I've shot multiple Intimidators, Excals, Vikings, Matrixes, Ego's and just about every other high end marker out there.
I shoot a 2K5'd GZ, Excalibur, Viking, Texas Storm, Ripper, Ripper 2 and Ripper 3 Intimidators. I run a Halo or an Empire Reloader B (and now a Pulse) with a PMI Pure Energy or Crossfire Tank.
Upgrades are always going to be subjective. Being that this is a marker that isn't found New In Box anymore there are several upgrades that really need to go into them.
1. There are two mandatory upgrades that must go into any Intimidator and that's an Adjustable Ram Cap and Hard Detents. These two upgrades enable the Intimidators to use Halo and Reloaders (and other force fed loaders) without worries of double feeding.
2. Barrel. Pick your favorite cocker threaded one and slap it on.
3. ASA. I prefer the CP's but honestly find any new style one that bleeds the back pressure and you're good to go.
4. Trigger. I'd say that a techna is a must but in lieu of that I like the CP's. Many other people recommend the Critical triggers.
5. Feedneck. Most stock feednecks and early 2002 replacements are weak. I'd highly recommend getting a CCM or other style clamping feedneck. It'll enable you to lock down on your loader without overtorquing it causing it to crack.
At this point, if you get a GZ, the real potential of the marker is not with the stock 2K1/2K2 design/configuration. I'd recommend that anyone getting one upgrade it to a 2K5 style marker.
I'd highly recommend keeping the torpedo regulator and LPR while scrapping the old style grip frame. The 45 degree frame was an upgrade to the axe handle style classics but really wasn't that great. A 2K5 frame will easily fit on. This enables you to bring 2K5 electronics in as well. This means an eye harness, power harness, membrane pad and 2K5 board (I recommend the Tadao's but the Frenzy 127's are fantastic as well).
A quick anodizing job after 2K5ing and you have an older marker that's retuned to shoot like a 2K5.
Efficiency, durability, consistency and it's easily retrofitted.
Age and resale. Most original parts will likely need work.
The GZ is one of the most popular body styles in the Intimidator line. It was the next marker put out after the classic generation and improved on many problems with the classic, including the gripframe. However, subsequent markers implemented a better clamshell design and enabled more room for electronics with easier access. The real allure of the GZ is the ability to slap a 2K5 frame on and bring new life into an old legend. The GZ's body flows quite well with the 2K5 frames and with a little anodizing magic you have a masterpiece.
The GZ's shoot like most every other Intimidator. You'll have a highly consistent marker capable of 1600-1800 shots off of a 68/4500 tank. You'll also have the vaunted Intimidator speed and reliability. Most older markers will likely need some tune up work due to their age but it's well worth the effort. With many GZ's going for $225 or less, you can really do some wonderful things for affordable prices. I bought one for $190 and sold off some parts and bought a 2K5 frame and totally 2K5'd mine and had it anodized for a total of about $300 spent. It now shoots just like a 3rd Generation marker. I added an Empire poppet, Frenzy board, 2K5 Wiring and a 2K5 frame. I kept the stock LPR and stock Torpedo (after a rebuild on both) though you could opt to put an Alias front block on as long as you get the body tapped to accept the grub screw to hold it in place. Doing this will eliminate block wobble that was endemic to the 2nd Generation intimidators.
All said and done, you have an Intimidator mainstay and with the ability to retrofit you have a fantastic marker to work as a project gun.
A fantastic marker and with the prices of them being low in the used market, it's an often overlooked gun that has a lot of bang for the buck.
gz timmy, critical trigger, critical frame, dye UL barrel, ST bolt, virtue board, dye reg, check it on/off, halo B hopper
Needs a 05 frame and virtue board makes this gun str8 butter to shoot.
Fast fast fast virtue board, accurate.
Price of upgrading.
Virtue board in the gz is insane, gun shoots crazy accurate, first tourny ive played without any gun problems, my matrix and ion would break down atleast once a month not this baby, and very easy to maintain and clean. but may not be worth investing the money into unless u already have one.
If u have one get the upgrades make this doggy bark with the big boys.
was board..clammy..adjustable ram cap..barrel
Very fast, accurate, looks awsome
Little heavy, not really a problem, kick back (unless you get an eiganram)
This marker is incredibly fast. The accuracy is phenominal, I was getting ball on ball at about 45ft. This is overall a great marker, I like the feel of it better than any gun ive shot. It is a little heavy, but I mean cmon, its not that bad. Check it out!
Definetly an incredible gun, try one out and see how you like the feel!
barrel, hopper, maybe a trigger depending on what yours came with
Easy to clean
A bit on the heavy side
This gun is great, i bought it used off of a guy who took very good care of it, im not sure what parts on it were upgraded, but it came with a Long shot barrel, a Dye grip, a smaller trigger wich i dont like very much and am planning to get a new trigger+frame, and im pretty sure it has a stock timmy bolt.
Anyways, it has been awesome. When i first got it i had gravity feed. Omg that was horrible. But now i have a Halo and it has been so great.
It hasnt chopped once, the ACE is great, though it cant see black paint (who uses black paintballs anyways?) It is a bit heavy, and my friends complained about that since they use Ion's, and my Halo adds more weight, but its not that bad, go lift some weights.
The only problem i had was finding a volt that fit inside the gun. Im sure its not the gun, its these screws that come off of the . . . air port thingy. . . whatever thats called, any ways the screws that hold that on stick up inside the gun and it gets rid of some room for the battery, but im sure if shortened the screws any 9v would fit.
Anyways this gun is great!
If you are looking for a gun you can find this gun for pretty cheap from local players at fields or at your local pro shop. (i got mine for only 350$ with upgrades and a warranty from the pro shop)
04 Vert feed cocker (close in accuracy, but much slower)
Tippman m98 (not even close)
Ground Zero Intimidator w/
adjustable ram cap
check it sure fit feed adaptor
adjustable ram cap
clam shell (not needed, but sure makes it nicer)
easy to maintain
Milling is a little bland, but then again looks dont kill
I picked this gun up a few months ago after finding out that Planet eclipse wasnt making the e-blade anymore, and that my plans to make my cocker electro were kinda dead in the water. So I decided to go ahead and go electro another way, and I have yet to be disappointed with this gun. Have had no real problems with the gun, other than breaking an air barb (my fault, I overtightened). The clam shell trigger frame really gives the gun a whole different look and feel. Gun is easy to maintain, not quite as easy as my cocker, but I feel the tradeoff is more than worth it for the increased performance. Plan to get a critical trigger, and will update when that happens.
All I can say is get this gun, you can prolly pick one up for about what you would pay for an Ion at this point, and for what you get for that little extra you will pay for one of these, it is more than worth it. The milling is about the only reason I am not going to give this gun a 10, I just find the milling to be kinda bland.
Barrel-stock one is fine, but any paintballer is bound to get a kit now these days
on/off rail-nice and comfy
clamshell-preference, but its nice when you do
bumperless ram-not really needed, but i hate changing the bumpers.
Trigger-I like my trigger different from your's 'nuff said
Weird stock trigger
Well, its a timmy folks. 2k2. Simple in design, easy to mantain. Stock wise, its fine, but everybody wants something different for it. From there, get a clam shell, or the new alias frames. The clam shell is so comfy, and dirt cheap now. The design and milling of the GZ is pretty cool, I have the dark blue body and a silver ram sleeve, and man does it loook fine. Take this baby out, and it shoots just like another timmy would, keeping that its a 2k2 in mine.
Great marker, well built, and simple in design and easy to clean up and go.

This is one of my favorite timmies there is. I love the older body style like the gz and 2k2's. They are simple yet super sexy. With the pred 2 board you not gunna beat this gun especially at the price you can pic them up. I mean with a upgrade board it will rip with the best of them. While 2k5'd some of the lightest timmies there is. I plan on doing this as my next upgrade. I really love this gun. they are so simple but super fast. worth every penny if you spend a lil more on the neccisary upgrades to make it a machine gun.
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.
