Ground Zero Intimidator 1 of 17 Team owned/used.





While browsing the Rare markers BST I picked up this piece of paintball history. A 1 of 15 Dust Red to Black Ground Zero Intimidator bone stock.
Equip with S.O.B board, classic metal timmy bolt and Long shot barrel.


What make this one special?

Well, most of us have seen the GZ Timmy before. Its was the hotness back in 2002 and I can remember they first retailed early that year in 45 frame dust gray or blue. But this GZ is one of the very first Gen 2's to ever roll off the production line.


The Red to black dust was strickly produced by Bob Long for Pro team Ground Zero. They made a total of 15 team GZ's. (per Terry59 Master tech for Bob Long)They did make a public version polished red to black but that came long after the dust originals.




There are 2 other rare team owned GZ's. A Gloss black and a Gloss Gold to black in addition to the 15 Red to Black guns.

Sadly, the team guns have evaporated into the paintball community. Some
2k2'ed others 2K4'ed. Some were stripped and re-annoed and the rest....who knows.


I spent a few minutes on the phone with Zack Long and he mentioned that the Lunquist brothers have a few rare annoed GZ's. (White to Light blue to dark blue Dust). Its a gift to find a stock team owned GZ and it's going to stay that way. The 2 gold GZ jewels above the grip are also a rare find. Will Arroyo spoke with me on FB about the GZ silver player (Steve Rodriguez) that made them.

So, there you have it. A nice spot light for a great gun and a great team that some of us followed back in the day.

Funny part for me is I saw you have a Ripper 1. Me want, Me want!!

They are still out there? How many do you think are still around??

PS. I have 2 GZ team guns....The other one is not ready for her glamore shots.

The ripper 1's? No idea...

This one I got from LJ formally of ironman/hybrid fame.... so it was a bit of a funky gun. I kept it 2k2 brained because it has some odd "cheater board" that Bjorn at BLAST has no data on but its a factory board.... comes up "SP.7 PRO 45" then "Bob Long" the says looks like every other Frenzy boot up screen. In the settings it has a bunch of extra settings.. ramp, ramp point, ramp start, ramp end... Its funky really.

PS Not a chance of prying that one out of my hands.... its one of my favorites. I even still have the matching classic frame and an un matching 2k2 clamshell. I may bring it dark-ops. That or this Rage I am building.

PS Yep.. tis I.
