1. Inline poppet valve design. ( not a spool valve)
2. Internal LPR design

4. Thin ergonomic grip frame.
6. 4 eye operation compatible. ( 30 bps can be acheived with 4 eyes. 4 eye system sold as an upgrade)
7. No rise wedge feed.
8. Swivel top regulator. ( fitting can be rotated to any position)
The Bob Long Marq 6 is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
This gun from what I've seen is a great gun. It is lighter than most timmy's and is very fast. It's not really that different from other timmy's but it still rips. I love the milling on this gun. It beats all the other timmy's on its milling. A barrel and a feedneck would be the upgrades i suggest. It is extremely air efficient too. I shot 2 pods through it and only used up 200 psi. That is one huge advantage it has over other timmy's.
Overall a great gun. There are only a few upgrades needed on this gun. Not that much different from other timmy's but still a good gun.
2005 Dark Timmy Shockteck bolt Tado board critical trigger & 2007 Onyx 4 eye set up with magnetic trigger ( MOD)
A TADO board when it comes out!!! HINT HINT
You cant play with the settings(dwell .ect)
The trigger could of been better.
My review of the Onyx is it was well taught out. Its good to see BOB LONG wip out another grate Marker. I do wish the Trigger was taught out like the rest of the marker. Having the 4 eye set up is the way to go on the Onyx. If you get the standard eyes the marker is still ONE BAD MOTHER TRUCKER!!!!!
I shot almost all type of timmies and none of the markers similar to Onyx
Bob Long Onyx SE

I got this Onyx from trade in Pbnation.com... I'm sure glads that I got this gun because it pretty simple. Kinda remind me like Shocker/DM/PM bolt kit but I like the designs of this Onyx better. It shoots rope and always on target. I'm glads to be in Bob Long's gangs because I don't want to shoots another guns.
If you shoots timmy and want the '07 Bob Long, GO FOR THE ONYX and you will have a happy life ever.

pretty much everything
UL barrel 14"
not sure, its fairly new, this gun rocks stock
SPEED, this gun is insanly fast, its nothing like old timmys, weights nothing... great design
Nothing really, this gun is any paintballers dream, its efficient, light, and fastt
Basically, this gun rocks, it will blow your mind, i mean four eyes, come on who does that, bob long is amazing, this gun is deff. going to make an impact on the world of paintball. It crazyt fast, it was test fired up to 31bps! it weighs next to nothing, althouigh the new angel ones are air compared to this. bottom line, get this gun asap
Um. buy it? its sweet, nicest gun ive seen in a while
i've used many timmies but none completely compare to the onyx
In the time tested I had a hard time finding anything I didn't like
I tried it out at a local field and i was amazed the first thing i noticed was the speed and incredible look of it. one of the most a mazing things about the onyx is the eye system which times the rate that your paint is dropping into the marker and then times the bolt to the speed of the paint meaning virtually no paint breaks.
In my opinion the onyx is the top of the line marker for 06-07
