Easy to use.
-Bulky for a kid
-settings in the gun are annoying to change.
overall i would chose this gun over most other 1000 dollar guns. It is a great gun for every player. I have used it for a few months and it has never failed me and has had no chops. It is very fast and the stock trigger is great. The sensitivity of the trigger is also amazing.
black to orange fade dragon, eigenram, hybrid ram cap, hybrid volumizer, 2k5 frame, m6 imfamous, lazer eyes, redz clamping feedneck
all personal, rips out of the box, probably a barrel kit of somekind
Shoots very smooth, looks great, easy to maintain, super reliable, efficient
Initial price, ignorant people, hard to stop buying cool things for it,
This is far and away a great gun, however this can be said about any of the bob long intimidators . They pretty much all shoot the same, have the same efficiency, The main difference is the milling, and this is where the dragon shines.
This gun is very accurate, easy to maintain, and always reliable. Just an occasional lube job, and the beast is off and ripping. It is very reliable, have played in the heat, cold, and even rain, and it was always on the go. It is the tippmann of the electro world. I still have a tippmann, but since i have gotten the dragon, the tippmann has not been used.
buy the gun that you think looks the best, in my opinion it is the dragon, I have a texas storm too, but I like the dragon, all personal preference, and we all know how something can seem better because we like the way it looks. Bottom line just buy bob, and you will not be dissapointed. By bob, I mean bob long, hope you knew that.

Eigenram and barrel
One of the best shooting guns I have owned by far. The gun shoots amazingly and with the eigenram in the gun there is zero kick. The gun is a bit bulky but after playing once or twice you don't even notice it and its probly the most well balanced gun I have ever used.
Buy it, they are the most underrated timmy you can buy.
Trigger, adjustable ram cap, perhaps the feedneck if you need something shorter, maybe even a bolt with detent slots.
Fast, effecient, reliable, easy to maintain and fix, balance, accuracy.
Some kick to it.
I bought this marker used from somebody in the mid-summer and had to have it repaired as the previous owner did not take good care of it internally at all. About the only thing it had going for it at first was that it turned on. After some tech work by one of my local shops it was ready for some action.
This was my first truly high-end marker and I was blown away by the speed of this marker and not to mention the accuracy once I had a good paint to bore match with my barrel. The stock trigger had some issues, side to side slop and the screws would walk themselves out. I attribute it to the misuse it saw though and I quickly changed the trigger to a CP sling blade, which increased the overall bps by 2-4, depening on how much time I had to fire.
The stock bolt isn't bad at all though it has some kick to it, nothing I'm complaining about as I don't seem to notice it. Some detent slots would be nice in it or simply changing out the bolt for one with slots in it, it saves wear on the detents. I haven't chopped with this marker while playing which is amazing in my opinion and I've run about 3 cases of paint through it thus far.
Maintenance is very easy, I was a little intimidated (no pun intended) to do any tech work on it at first but found it rather easilly. I changed out the poppet valve to an empire delrin one to eliminate the need for a cupseal and after some time to remove the grip frame, the hosing, and then the front block it was rather simple and easy to put back together. Cleaning and lubing the regs is just as easy as nine times out of ten and problems with consistancy usually means it's time to clean the lpr and hpr. I'd say about every two cases the pistons should be removed, wiped clean along with the insides, and then relubed and placed back. Even then I usually get around +/- 4 at the chrono and can hold it at around 280 fps all day without having to touch my regs again; provided I keep it aired up properly.
The only issues if any would be the weight, which can be tiring if you're just holding it in between games, a snatch grip add-on would solve this easilly enough. But with two hands during a game I don't really have an issue or notice it. Even the feedneck might be an issue but I haven't found anything wrong with the stock one despite it being a little high, I believe it's a mid-rise but it's not a priority to change out. And the kick, some people don't like the kick but it's the 2k2 style so it has more then the 2k5 style. A simple change of the bolt and possibly a lighter ram would do the trick, nothing super major needs to be done to this marker to get it to preform well though.
Once I fixed this up it was heaven to use and the milling is second to none, possibly the most unique milling out of all the Intimidators and other markers to date. Fast, reliable, simple to work on and accurate. All of my issues with it since it was fixed have had to do with relubing o-rings and that's all. This marker has definately made me a timmy fan for life.

Im probably the only guy on earth who feels this way but the timmys arent that great.i used it for a full day of paintball and it really did not impress me.i mean it has all the modes and it is fast but it isnt worth the money that you pay for it, plus for real paintball players out ther they know that the marker doesnt make the player. Ive played so many people with timmys who thought they were going to win just because they own a timmy. all in all it just isnt that great.
If you have the money buy one but if your a good player and want something to match your budget, get something else
Ok, where do I start, this thing rips. This is by far my favorite gun that I have ever shot/owned. I have only had one ball break in it, and that was because my friend gave me some crappy paint. This thing is fast, with dead on accuracy. I hear alot of talk about how expensive they are, and if that is your only worry, then just check out ebay, you can get em used for fairly cheap.
This marker rocks, if your getting a timmy get this, or a russian legion.

Disasembly is time consuming.
Best gun yet. and as you can see, i have gone thru ALOT of guns. I like being Mobile, but still having that "edge" of being able to shoot fast and hitem hard. This gave me the real feeling i liked in high end, high rof type guns. Plus they have a life time warranty, which makes things so much better when you do alot of rigorous games.
I most defiantly recommend this product to anyone with the money or chance of getting this. It surpasses all other markers in all lines of possibilities. Best gun so far!
When she is clean, she fires like a dream. Beats all my angels!
all sorts, for speed it a trigger, maybe a board, air efficency a lpr volumizer, a new barrel (cocker threads :>)
Pretty accurate, pretty fast stock, light cool milling, easy 2 get 2 bolt
Only a month of use so im still dicovering them
This is a decent gun that has lcd tht has a bps counter thts pretty accurate, a timer, it tells the modes, and it has easy to change settings.It looks cool, jus get rid of the chrome. The gun is pretty fast. Stock it shoots abt 15 bps if u can shoot it tht fast , but it nots hard.The eyes are decent
i recomend this product for a paintballer tht knows how to fix gun cause i cant fix this gun cause im afriad ill screw it up lol. Ill give it a 8.5

This is a very impressive package BL has put together, it looks really good and shoots the part too. The milling is awsome, the ano is very good however there were quiet a few water marks, the gun is very long and tall, however if you 2k5 it that will change.
The stock feedneck is a joke IMO, it couldn't fit my buddy's halo b without being sanded down. I have never like the middle bumped styled triggers so IMO its gotta go for a cp or something. The stock barrel on this one was exceptional, however a CP would be perfection. I would also replace the bolt with an orange unit, the stock gets the job done but very poorly in most aspects. the board was a frenzy 116 2k2 style and it was awsome, took time but they finally made a good stock board. I know I have sounded very negitive throughout this review but I am being honest, for 700-900 new still in 2005 the price is obserd, however when you buy a Dragon or Spieces you are really getting the greatest built guns in the world, they are fully microhoned in every hole and tube on them, they really are a lot better built than any other timmy and any other gun for that matter. I'd say buy one, used preferably to save some cash for the upgrades on the flaws of the gun.
One name for it, Preperation H:
WTF you might say, why? Because it feels good on the whole I'd say if you can find a new one cheap do it! however, new ones go for almost as much as a used alias, I would give it an 8.5 but you can't soo.... But with the recomended ups I think this gun would easily be a ten, however it will take tuning and a lot of money, but it would be worth every penny of it.
Clamping feedneck (if not already on it)
Trigger (if you dont mind stock)
Stock trigger settings
This marker is simply amazing. Out of all the markers Ive used this easily is on the top. Ive shot DM's, cockers and all but just the feel of a timmy is beyond them. Dragon is in my opinion the best milling (other than rippers) on any timmy. Out of the box they come set up for high pressure so I just aired it up and went. Only problem is the stock pull on the trigger, no big deal as you just change it with the three set screws outside the trigger. I bought mine for 800 brand new and it is the best money Ive ever spent.
If you want a marker that will keep up with the best of them, and not take to much out of your wallet, get a dragon. Out of the box with the stock pull me and my freind hit 15 bps. After adjustments we were doing 19. Although I think Im in love with this gun, Ill give it a 9 because nothings perfect.
