Chops on some occasions
I bought this gun off a buddy of mine a while back and i was blown away at first shot, i got it for mad cheap ($120) and just had to put a line on it. i took it out back gassed this puppy up and started shooting and before i knew it i had shot over 1,000 rounds with only a couple chops. this gun is really accurate. i took it to a field and was MOWING people down everyone kept askin me what upgrades i had on it and when i told them everything was stock they told me i was full of it. cleaning it is really easy just pop the bolt out and run a swab thru and you're good to go.
If your someone whose looking for a gun thats light, fast, and it really compact then this is the gun for you. i would reccomend this for someone who plays mid/front or snake and also who is serious about the sport. you wont be dissappointed when you see people coming off the field with your paint on them. it just putsa big smile on your face

I got the D2 last week and tested it last weekend. I gased up and the bolt shot forward and I could hear a major air leak. I over looked the obvious and got my brother to look at it. The pressure was too low to recock the bolt.
After I fixed that, it worked perfectly. It was a buisy day at the field so I had to play with renters, first round I took out 4 of them right off the break.
I played untill I ran out of air, when I put the tank on again the same problem occured. I checked the pressure again but this time it was fine.
Now I am concerned and cannot fix the problem, So if anyone knows what the problem may be, please leave a comment here.
I haven't heard of anyone else having trouble, and when it was working properly it was fantastic. Right now ( April , 2008) this marker is only $250 so its a great buy

I love the body its stright lines
Very sharo looking
Easy to clean
Small Almost as light as my Ego but just as small if not smaller
I dont mind the reg being so close to the trigger fram it helps me tuck in tighter
Also I belive u do not need to upgrade stock reg it works fine with the marker
People say stock bolt is not good on air i wouldent know never used it mine came upgraded with inverted bolt
I do not reccomend this gun to first gun owners unless u are really goin to really get into the sport and learn about how to maintain your markers.
But if u want a quite gun for outdoor this one is great
Really fast also for speed Ballers
Very accurate ball on ball
for the price of these guns its a great buy!
Kingman Electra 06, there is no comparison. The Defiant blows the Electra away.
I use the Defiant and i have an On/Off switch. A Halo and a 14" Evil Driver barrel with a Contract Killer marker grip. And a bob Long feed neck.
I recommend a 14" barrel. I have the Evil Driver barrel and it is dead accurate. But the stock barrel on the Defiant STINKS get a new one. Also get a feed neck. I have a bob long feedneck and it works great. GET A 4500 TANK.
This gun is ACCURATE, QUIET and FAST.
Stock Feed Neck
And adjust the trigger
Overall this gun is awesome! I got mine for $450. Its accuracy is well worth the price and it's proven to be consistent time after time. Adjust the trigger to suit your style and start rippin. I do suggest a new feed neck b/c it does not come with a locking one. And get a new barrel b/c the stock is not that accurate. The Evil Driver barrel is great. If you dont have a Halo, get one. B/c this gun will outshoot the Egg time after time in the middle of a game. It is a bit of a gas hog so unless you like running to fill your air after every game i'd suggest you get a 4500 tank. The 3000 tank holds about 300 to 350 balls. If your a front man and just starting i'd suggest a 3000 though b/c they are so light and compact...like this gun. This gun is AMAZING for the price. Just be sure to get a nice tank to fit your position.
GET IT!! And when you do get a Halo and a 4500 tank and you'll be tearin it up in no time.
gun itself ck grips cp barrel 45/45 tank and a halo b
and a trigger
This is a very light gun but needs a few things added to it but overall if your just starting to play some tourneys and not alot of cash i recommend it otherwise if u have the money for a better gun than you should probably want to go with another choice but this is an average high end gun
Icd promaster, weak build quality / Evil Omen 2.0 no comaprison the D2 is just like any of the intimidators
Bob Long D2(silver), Virtue 2k4 board, 14" Dye ul, Ndz asa, custum O-ringed stock bolt, lapco clamping feedneck, Hybrid lady grips, Ndz swoop trigger Evo2 w/z-board and Air America 68,3000 w/PE valve
-doesn't come w/an asa
-and who doesn't change the barrel
-prolly the lightest gun on the market and smallest
-Bob long's Quality
-The stock bolt kills efficiency
-price may turn some away
Ok so I got my Defient 2 through a trade for my previous marker and I was very impressed by the quality, allthough not as flashy as the intimadators build quality is not sacraficed and you can see that even at frist glance. I hate how people say this marker is not an intimidator or nothing like one well tell me whats not like one about it other than it doesnt say intimidator after its name. The defient shoots as good as any of bob longs markers and thats why the price is still up there wich some people may feal is kinda high sence I traded a $350 marker for myn Im not complaining but the defient is very unique and will hold its value well for a while to come still Msrp set at $700, being only made in 2005.
About how it shoots well first off, you will find some of the stock components are weak and realy hinder the performance I had trouble with velocity and consistency due to the stock bolt. The bolt doesn't have o-ring or detent slots the detents take just fine without the slots but without o-rings everything is lost, consistency, accuracy, speed, smoothness and total efficiancy but don't waist ur money on the Pbinverted bolt I did and it didn't fit right, the detent slots grabed the detents more than the stock bolt without any and it has no advances over the stock bolt other than the o-rings, I custum o-ringed my bolt on each side of the air inlet and my defient was shooting ropes
I could drop the lpr to 65 and still shoot around 280 with no kick and great performance.
The stock torpedo red is very good and changeing it only changes the entire look of the marker the reg varies +or- 5 fps on average wich is good
The stock trigger may to some make the marker feal cramped and I found to be way to small and hard to walk.
With the new 2k4 intimidator virtue board nothing can stop this thing and I love it the virtue board is prolly the best board on the market and works great in the Defient2
This is a great marker and very unique, but needs a few upgrades to maximize the performance, but build quality and style says Bob Long all over it and screams high end when you shoot it! I give it an 8 only because of some weak stock components and it realy is a build up project.
I just got this gun about a month ago and its the best gun i have ever owned, i have owned a couple matrixes. this gun rips out of the box. the 127 board is great but a upgraded board can never hurt. the stock trigger is also great out of the box. this gun makes a good back up or primary. this gun is also very easy to lube and clean

Awesome accurcy, good speed, tiny, light and tiny can use(some) intimidator parts,fast.
Incredible gas hog, cant put after market reg on, stock feed neck,trigger not good.
I got this gun in the summer and wanted to wait to really use it, then write a review. Well here we go...
Problems: I like buying after market parts but not as many as i had to buy for this one. The gun worked fine when i first got it. But I couldnt use any after market regs cas the stock asa was threaded weird. Got pissed about that. Then I got everything i wanted for it for a while. Then One time when i wnet out to practice i noticed my lpr screw was loose. Thought nothing about it. But when i went to shoot it, it wouldnt shoot cas the lpr fell apart. I got a new one everything was fine 4 a while. Then the damn frenzy board went on me and left me without a gun for a while cas Bob Long didnt want to do anything about it. Then finally i got a virtue and Palmer LPR.
Goods: I thinks its incredibly accurate, with virtue was faster, and my new lpr lets e suck every bit of gas out of my tank(no more gas hog) the new trigger is way better cas the stock one has side to side play, no one likes that. I like my new feedneck but i really want a new one cas the NDZ one i have doesnt hold egg feednecks so yeah i want a new one. The stock grips are alright no complanits. I cant really say anything about the consistency cas i had a bigger bore barrle( lucky 15 .689) so the consistency was off a little. The CP reg made up for that though. Im getting a pulse and powerlyte kit for better consistency. O yeah and its tiny and light.
I would recomend this gun for any one who loves BL and small guns. Sadly they dont make them anymore. U can still find them if u really look. But dont get it if u dont like spending money.
IF u like spending money for making ur gun awesome get it.
If u dont then well. dont get this one
All in all i love this gun
I give mine a 10 with all the up grades, but without them only an 8
angel 1: around the same size maybe a little bigger, better board, barrel kit stock, on/off stock, better but not for the price
alias timmy: a little heavier but a little morre balanced so it evens out, a little more efficient, comes with little extras, better looking imo
nerve: less kick but neither have much, a tiny bit more accurate but seemed harder to rip on, less efficient
ion: much harder to walk, much slower, a little less accurate, not as efficient
wrath ltd: less accurate, less efficient, not as good

if tuned right VERY LITTLE KICK
okay i was thinking about buying an ion but was still open minded when i walked into the shop, I saw this gun and wasn't sure what it was, i hadn't heard of any Bob Longs besides Timmys so i was curious, decided to take it after the guys at the shop vouched for it
bolt: the bolt is low flow, no detent slots, and no orings. The only thing it has going for it is its delrin, pbinverted makes a bolt that is currently the only bolt out there and it is a great bolt. I have heard that Acid Customs makes a bolt for it but i have no idea how to get it and i don't know if its any good
feed neck: It does not clamp and isn't the right size for any hopper i have tried and i didn't want to sand down a halo so i spent thirty bucks on a new one
on/off: Doesn't come with one and there are tons out there, my on/off of choice is the CP direct mount, it is so easy to turn and looks awesome
trigger: The alias trigger is nice but its a comfort thing, i don't really like it so i ordered a cp sling
Board: The frenzy board is fast but a lot of people have trouble getting rid of bounce, honestly i cant detect bounce for crap but i turned debounce on full and the ref said he couldn't find any, but if u want a new board i would recommend the Virtue
Barrel: Its alright but i bought a redz peppersticks and i'm happy with it
Kick: I'm a guy who doesn't really believe in kick with paintball guns but thats just me, i did a one finger test and it wasn't that bad, i tuned my gun to max out efficiency and reduce kick and now i have very little u only notice if u try
efficiency: off of a 68/3000 fill i get around 1000 shots maybe a little more, very nice, planning on turning my dwell to 6 stead of 10 so that should help
maintanence: very easy, if u have a new bolt lube that, lube the ram. In the manual it says to remover the e-clip and like pretty much take it apart but you can just put some lube on the metal and slide it inside and that works, maintanence is very simple and easy
reliability: I have used this gun for six months now and have never had any problems except when i turned my dwell too high and it made the board ramp until i turned it down, very reliable
sound: its pretty loud dryfiring but i never notice in the heat of the game, with paint it is much quieter and compares to an ion
weight: with everything on that comes with the gun (barrel but not asa) it weighs in at a tiny 2 pounds one ounce, very pleased. The Ion is similar in weight but this is so much more balanced. With my cp upgrades it is much lighter so its really light now.
looks: I don't like my guns color as much as the black or blue but its a nice greyish graphite but it was on sale in this color so i saved the 50 bucks. Might get custom anno and maybe milling but i doubt it
regs: The design of the reg is that the asa threads into the reg, so u need a reg adapter to slap on something new, i have a cp reg adapter and a cp shorty reg and am very happy. Make sure u use the lpr adjusting tool when changing pressure one time i went over 100 psi for a day and the manual says in BIG CAPITAL LETTERS NOT TO DO THAT, but i turned it down, no problems
make sure u use your lpr adjustment tool (the gauge thing) and make sure ur lpr is set right because mine at least likes to lower itself. i have it set at 70 and its awesome
here are the upgrades in order of needing upgraded and some reccomendations:
on/off: cp direct mount, ndz, hyrbrid, whatever you prefer
feed neck: anything that clamps and clamps well
bolt: only one out there is the pb inverted and its really good
barrel: I recommend a kit anything that is good quality will work
reg and reg adapter: cp reg adapter or violent products, cp grip reg, dye hyper inline 2, aka sidewinder
trigger:cp sling or rake
board: tadao infamous or virtue they are both awesome
adjustable ram cap: cp or hybrid
and that wraps it up, you will notice that I have cp upgrades for a lot because from what I have seen they have yet to make a bad product (feedneck is questionable though) and The only non cp upgrades i have on my gun are the bolt and feedneck but i'm not biased, i have experiented with many different companys and their products and i find cp to be my favorite
ok, all my cp upgrrades came in and the thing that really stood out was the trigger, it was amazing, so smooth and no side to side movement, awesome
