The Bob Long 2k5 Intimidator is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
i bought this gun so i could join a team. and when it came i loved it. i recomend that you get small screws for the asa or you will screw them right into the battery. but i aired it up shot and i got like 15/16 all the time. NO BREAKS. super easy to clean and maintain. if i were you i would buy this gun.
2k5 timmy, cp on/off, redz clamping feedneck, new designz ramcap
ram cap, bolt maybe, and an asa of course
Light, fast, small profile, lots of ups for it
Its a lil heavy (compared to matrixes and egos)
Well, this gun is great. loosen the trigger and you can hit 15 bps. it shoots fast and is light. but i mean, its not as light as a matrix or an ego, but its still light. its got a small profile too. but one of the best parts, its upgradable. and it operates on really lp. its also really accurate with a like 6 inch spread at 30 yards
so believe me this gun definately is just as good as other timmies, only difference between this and the alias and empire is weight and milling.
Red to Black fade PM5
Phat mini drop
Proto 2 piece
Red Halo B
45/45 Pure Energy
New board- Infamous
New barrel- your preference.
New reg- I am not a fan of Torpedoes.
New trigger- Techna Scythe
Front block wiggles
Well, I am basing this review on ONLY personal experience. I am not saying that all 2k5 Timmies are bad, I believe that I just had a bad experience.
PRICE- my friend bought his from something like 700. Although, the current price has gone down.
WEIGHT- A nice and light marker. Easy to snap shoot with the lack of weight.
COMFORT- Well, I don't like spyders. The timmy and spyder have a lot in common FEEL WISE, not shooting wise. I don't like long set ups. I just don't. This timmy is a long setup. The trigger frame however is very thin and that felt pretty comfty in the hands.
ACCURACY- With the stock 12 inch assassins barrel. There is nothing to brag about when it comes to accuracy. It shoots darts but does not shoot through breaks well at all. I like 14 inch barrels. Sorry but this is a bad part of the gun.
REG- Well, I don't now, nor have I ever liked torpedo regs. They don't work that well in my honest opinion. They are consistant when REALLY broken in. Out of the box consistency has +/- 10 fps.
SPEED- well, with the Infamous board, the speed is excellent. It just rocks as to how fast it can go. Easy 15 bps with the techna scythe.
STOCK BOARD- The stock board I believe has only semi modes and I think no eye logic. I cannot comment on the stock board because I have only used the Infamous.
EYES- well, here is where it gets REALLY cruddy in the review. The eyes SUCK. I have an ingame experience where the eyes failed me. I just chopped alot. I used a revvy 12 volt with x board, reloader b, halo b with cheetah set on the slowest and highest feed rates possible. It is not the loader. I tried using a new barrel. Paint may have been breaking at the barrel threads. I used a 12 inch stock proto barrel and a 14 inch dye UL barrel. Both had the same results. I tried a different bolt which was the shocktech bolt. This had the same out come. I tried messing with the regs, the same outcome. I tried different paint, SAME OUTCOME. I cleaned the eyes, same out come. My friend bought new eyes, same outcome. Changed the eye sensitivity, same outcome. I am stumped as to what it could be. The detents were changed as well with the same outcome. Also tried an adjustable ram cap with the same results.
FRONT BLOCK- the front block on the timmy I used was very wobbly and that made me mad. Not having any problems except for the normal one of chopping like holy crap.
Overall, until I get the chopping problem fixed, this gun is ONLY OK. Its not great, its not bad. I just very dislike timmies after I used this one. Sorry all of you timmy lovers, this is not going down as a good score. Any queries or suggestions, PM me please.
03 WGP Vert cocker with all orracle upgrades
2K5 tim with Kaner Barrel system
Always good to have a barrel kit for different bore sizes but stock barrel is cool
A better shaped trigger if your gonna try to shoot the 25 bps
Get a Halo and alot of balls
Needs a better manual.
Most of my paintball has been with my autococker and i am not very quick on the trigger. The tim shoots very nice and i can accutally shoot fast now. Only time i chopped balls was when i touched the trigger with the barrel blocked. I noticed i did a whole lot better with this gun on the recball field and in the air ball field. I decided to go with the 2k5 since i got it brand new for $550 and i heard that all the other tims were more only for the milling and the LCD. I am not a pro yet but i think this will be my gun for a while to help me get there.
If you have the money and you can acctually play well you should get this. If you are new and thinking of this for your first gun i would say to go with something entry level to start off with like mabey a WGP cocker. Buy it its the coolest!!
05 Ego, Pink Lady Ego, 05 Speed

60/45 Crossfire LP
12" and 14" black ultralite
black hybrid reg
red halo b with rip
> Soon to order BLACK ALIAS <

2 liter or old torpedo (looks)

weight (lighter than most)
kinda big (size not weight)
This gun is a very good VALUE. It does just what it is supposed to do: provide a TRUE entry into the world of intimidators (the defiant isn't a true timmy). This gun is very fast (I got to 19 bps w/paint) and is very accurate. But because it doesn't have the LCD board or the lighter weight, and smaller profile of the alias, it may be considered by some to be a waste of money (unless they like the milling). For $300 more, they could have an alias, and that is the route that I will be taking. Nonetheless, It proves itself to be an excellent entry level timmy, that can be upgraded to compete with the alias, as well as other newer timmies.
Not the greatest timmy ever, but with the proper upgrades, can be made into a very good tourney gun.
Alias Intimidator - Don't see much of a difference, except for miling
Dye DM5 - Heavier, pretty nice gun, I like my 2k5 better though
EGO - Only gun that I like better, but I still love my 2k5 and am glad I got it
Ion - Had much more problems with and it wasn't as fast
E-Bladed Black Magic - Slower, heavier, harder to maintain
Viewloader eVLution II (Egg)
Air America 4500 PSI Tank
Check-It Unimount 2
DOW 55 - This is the factory-recommended 'grease' you use to lube your marker... does a great job, and you'll be happy you got it when your gun lasts longer because you remember to clean it :]
ASA, I recommend either the Check-It Unimount 2, or a CP one.. both work great
Fast Hopper, I recommend a Halo B or Empire Reloader B, but if you want to save some money, go with an Egg
Paint... lots and lots of paint, you're going to need it for when you start mowin faces with this beast
New trigger -- stock one is fine, but if you want a little bit more walk-ability, get a new one
Barrel -- stock one is also great, but you might want to go with a new one.
Feedneck -- I personally don't like the stock one, but CP Clamping Feednecks are great and easy to use.
Not an Air Hog
easy to use & maintain
None, except for all the paint you're going to use.. and the manual sucks :(
I got my 2K5 Intimidator for $650 on ActionVillage, and I haven't regretted it at all. I've always wanted an intimidator, and I had finally gotten one. When I got the box, I was super excited. The barrel is 12" and very accurate, and the stock trigger aint half bad either. It came with some nice-feeling grips as well. The milling is the classic, super-sexy 2k2 milling, meaning it's hard to think it looks ugly :). The only thing I didn't like was the fact that the manual was the old 2k2 manual, and had alot of stuff that didn't have anything to do with the gun. But oh well, it came with some corrections on a separate sheet of paper, so its all good.
After running to the local shop and getting some DOW-55, an ASA and Macroline for it, I gassed it up, put on my hopper and went outside to test the bad boy out. I ran 200 rounds though it and was amazed. This thing was shooting at around a 10 +/- FPS (and lately it's been going to around 6-9 +/- FPS), and was very accurate as well. Easily one of the most accurate stock-barrels I've used (aside from cockers, of course). The gun also ripped like crazy, I was easily shooting at around 18-20 BPS which made me feel awesome.
After the first "test drive", I tweaked the settings a bit and then put another 500 rounds through it. The gun didn't chop at all, and I didn't experience any drop-off. The gun was shooting like a dream. I put around 2000 rounds through it until I stopped. Yay! The first cleaning session!! Yippee!!!!
Usually for me, the first time I clean a new marker is the hardest and worst, but it gradually gets easier.. but to my surprise, the 2k5 was actually incredibly easy to clean. All you really need it DOW-55 and an Allan wrench or two. The bolt was very easy to get out, and after lubing it with some DOW-55, I went on to the ram, the poppet, the reg, etc... it didn't take long to clean and it was easy to clean, a big plus in my book.
The only problem I had with my 2k5 was with some major drop-off, but that was because either my tank didn't fit my ASA, or I failed to fully gas it up, when, after talking to my friend who's a gun tech, was just a kind of funny thing to look back at. But aside from that, I haven't had any problems with it.
Just recently we had team-practice, and the timmy worked flawlessly the entire day. It was mowing faces all day long, and was working incredibly well. After wards, we decided to go play some rec-ball for fun, and the marker worked just as well as it did in speedball -- you can easily 1-ball people with it, and it completely owned on any field that we played on.
This marker is an incredibly good one, it's very fast, light-weight, easy to use and maintain, and very accurate. Most people think that its not as good as Alias Intimidators, but they are completely full of it, and it is just as good. The gun is worth EVERY PENNY that you pay for it, and you can find some really good deals on them. In short-- this gun is a beast.
Smart Parts Freak
CP Flame Drop
CCM Clamp Feed Neck
Barrel (must on almost every gun)
Fast Hopper (egg, halo b, empire reloder)
Maybe LPR (stock is fine)
Does Not Chop Paint (read below)
Very Easy Maintenence
Breaking Balls (or not breaking balls rather): Lets start with the barrel. The stock barrel is a 12' assassins barrel. Like most stock barrels, i think it is crap. I have the smart parts freak kit. I strongly recomend a barrel kit. With halfway decent paint, such as wal-mart monster balls, ($30 a case) I can go through cases of paint without chopping a single ball! The stock bolt is great, hardly ever sticks, or chops.
Reliability: If you take care of this gun, cleaning it after you play (maybe 2-3 minutes), it will NOT break down on you. I have only had a screw pop out of the grip frame, and i went to menards and bought a replacement for $0.38.
Speed: I recently found out that my gun has an old crappy out of date board, instead of the newest frenzy it was supposed to come with. It's on it's way to be updated right now. Anyway, this gun will rip.
Accuracy: Like I said above, if you get a nice barrel/barrel kit, this gun will shoot darts.
Upgrades: There are many nice upgrades for intimidators to improve it already outstanding performance.
Price: This intimidator has everything plus a better board, except for an LCD, that all other intimidators have! The reason the price is so low is because of the basic milling, and because the smart parts ion required Bob Long to come out with a lower priced gun to compete with it.
Many have asked, what is better an autococker for accuracy or a high end eloctronic gun for speed. The answer is an intimidator ---> both. You will not regret buying this gun. Snap shooting front players and paint lobbing back players, get ready to have a lot of fun with this gun. =)
I hope this review will help you in buying your next marker.
Any questions e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I recently got this through a trade with my '05 Speed. One of my best trades yet, and most favorite guns yet. After using Protos, Angels, 'Cockers, and Spyders, I have finally found my 2nd favorite gun, Protos are my first.
Once I got it, I aired it up, and leaked out of my LPR. My LPR was defective. So, I got a new 'noid since that was blown previously, and a new AKA 'Timmy LPR. I finally got to air up the gun. I pressurized the LPR to 70 PSI, and my Hyper 2 at about 150-200 psi at about 280 fps. I shot 5 shots, and they were dead on accurate with a CP 2 Piece. I went to fully fill my Halo, and went back to shoot.
After shooting the 5 balls, I was anxious to shoot a full hopper. I let it rip, and at 15 bps, this is amazing. This gun is amazingly fast, accurate, efficient, and consistent. After getting my Hyper 2 broken in, I was getting about 1300-1400 shots off a 68/3000 running at 70 PSI. There was no drop off. This gun will never let you down if you relube it and do proper maintenance after everyday of play.
One thing I must complain about is the stock parts. I would definately upgrade your barrels,LPR Block, LPR Gauge, and everything I listed in the Upgrade part.
Sorry, it is hard to say what stock parts are like, because I had some extra cash, so I immediately upgraded. I got an adjustrable ram cap, Hyper 2, CP 2 Piece, Lucky 15, Gen 4 'Timmy Clamper, Virtue Board, and Hybrid Lady grips.
This is a gret gun. Definately made for most players out there.

Another timmy pm6 aka friends x5e hard to explain why i compair
Proto matrix 06 UL frame egg ans carbon tank 68/45
fast hopper(obvious) stock barrel is alright but i do like me a boomstick
Its a very fast tight little gun feels nice looks aight
Run of the mill timmy buy used or dont buy
At my local req field and my friend bobby was playing with his 2k5 and he let me give it a shot. I went through a full halo b in under 10 sec (i didnt cheat with rapming i got sum magic fingers baby) was hella fast not to loud(nice) got me some attention and made me wana bonus ball the hell out of my friend parsa and his dam sexy viking. no problems shot awsome no breaks accurate to a t and bea-utiful. good gun would recomend any1 to buy this gun but in my opinion dont buy new buy it used just to save yourself some money forall the paint youll be going through.
Like i stated buy it new or used... it will never be better than my pm6
spyder compact 2000
tribal BBT blue/black fade
ANS genX cocker
most times i had 2-3 guns at once
EGO- red/black LE with micro max flow tank, red halo... SPONSER stickers all over halo B rip drive, freak kit black back, red front
2k5 timmy-- black max flo system, chrome pin stripin, sponsers stickers, smoke egg and Empire B, black cp reg, black CP ultra low clamp feedneck, THIS IS THE COOLEST FEATURE, milled to look like naughty dogs without the paw of course... all new internals, and BLAST put in the new 127.8 board for free.. paintball kingdoms extra hard detents, CP slant trigger? and a critical magnetic trigger conversion kit, freak kit - stainless back, black front
pics up soon... i thought i had them on comp i don't, so i have to go home and get scanner
barrel- boomstick freaks
ball detents (if halo might be used or is being used)
torpedo will work just give it cases if you still don't like buy a CP stubby
feedneck ( i hate twist its a preference though)
DOW 33or DOW 55... get it and use it on REG and gun ASAP
trigger - although some like stock, i like mine loose (CP def.)
Critical magnetic kit.. from paintballkingdom.com - easier to walk, theres also a CP magnet kit
Accurate-not like ego
price- nice 600 on ebay
easy to mill
WEIGHT- omg , so MILL IT like me :)
Its good when weight is cut off, it shoots good. I used teflon and messed up the soleniod = 80 dollars, so kids use locktite if i teach you anything. shoots really really nice, nice lines some balls wonder away from my line but expected. I don't like timmy's all that much, i call then bouncing guns, as much as you say they don't people let me tell you something - if you shoot above 12 bps, it bounces ive tested it with my trigger everywhere - to test yours put your marker with eye on and bolt forward, and then walk the trigger with eyes on it shoots every once in awhile, tell me it won't do that with the eyes off, lol
still no one will catch it, cause everyone loves the timmy, unlike my ego where everyone just wants to play with my trigger so they also check my gun for bouncing ... but oOo well ive been good never got points off, so its obviously fine.. lol
i love how you can mill the weight off, and in any design you want. I like all the upgrades and how many places have them. I love my guns
It is my back up gun, but still i love it, it shoots nice and for half the price of my ego with it shooting almost alike, its a winner
If you want a timmy speed and accuracy, with a cheap price this is for you, it might need upgrades but well worth it
Ive been playin for over 8 years... so trust me it is heavy, lol don't say its light please - pick up my ego with micro that is what everygun should be like, the lightest gun ever
