they operate very close to each other.... the only real diffrence is the ram is operated by air only one way on the O3, and forward and back on the Pimp.

Impulses, o3's, timmy's, cyborgs, they all operated identical and have the same parts... just diffrent sizes and diffrent air passages.

Yeah,

the O3 is a great gun....that is when when it's working. I'll tell you what this guy is talking about because I've owned one and have had frustrations. Quality of the boards is suspect on the marker, my eye sensor system didn't work out of the box. A repair from Odyssey takes a really long time. Also, it was advertised to come stock with a delrin bolt. But they decided to ship the O3 with an aluminum bolt and not tell anybody. BIG MISTAKE. Because the bolt cycles so fast you've got to be real careful and lube it everytime you use the marker. If not you'll inistantly start to wear the internal bore. Mine did just after the first series of dry fires. The marker has been out since May, and a delrin bolt still hasn't been released. Finally the data cable, which allows the owner to hook the marker up to a computer and program the marker isn't out yet either. If someone resets the marker, the Dwell gets reset as well. You can't set the Dwell without the cable. Again Odyssey has been promising this very essential accessory for months, repeatedly lying to their customers about a release date.

So:

GOOD DESIGN&NICE PERFORMING+NO AFTER MARKET SUPPORT&BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE= A possible piece of crap. Sorry, but the kid has a point.
