After recently buying my first marker (a refurbished Imagine) and reading all the posts in this section, I was a little confused when people would talk about different Imagines and I found no clear answer as to what the differences were. So out of that I wanted to compile pictures, alternate names, differences, and new/additional features in all the Imagine models just to have an idea of what changed from year to year with this marker.

If you have any additional info to contribute please post it up and I will edit this post as needed. How deep we get into the differences is up to you, and thanks for your help.

Thanks jimmy, but all stock pics of the 05 that I've seen show the same trigger as all the other Imagines (a W or 2-finger trigger). Can anyone else confirm/deny this?

Okay, I was just leery because of the info at the Kingman site says/shows a double finger trigger (http://www.kingman.com/section/emarker/guns/imagine_led.html).

Hob, Is this what your stock blade trigger looks like?

Jim,
I cannot explain why Kingman only pictures the old trigger on the Imagine, but I can tell you that I have had several 05 Imagine LED and IPI 3.0 come thru here and the big difference for 05 has always been the new flat trigger they picture on the Pilot and Fenix. The frame is actually machined differently to accomidate it....Here is an 05 LED I sold last month...the only non stock item is the Dye Sticky 3 grips....
