Am I insane or do timmies cost nothing these days?

Am I right in thinking a 2k5 Alias should cost more than $400?

You are insane. Timmys are worthless. Brand new 06 Timmys go for $1000, used they go for $600.

Those Timmys that FCP has are leftovers from National after their split with Bob Long. The prices they are selling for is as cheap as FCP can sell them. There is hardly any mark up at all on them. I play for a FCP sponsored team and was trying to get one until I found out I'd be paying almost the same as retail on them.

They've got 2k5s, Alias, and Species if I recall. I was in the shop last week.

Like Timmyshoota said, they are probably just trying to clear them of their inventory. It would be a great alternative to an ion though. I also checked out dealer prices and there is a very, very small mark up. They are just trying to get rid of them.

They have 2k5's, Alias's, Species LED/LCD, and ECX LED/LCD. Just checked the dealer site and Chris is right..my cost is not far from what the public cost is. They're just trying to get them out of there.

If all their inventory on the Timmys is at their stores, they've got 6 of each style then. I'm sure they've got a bunch more at the warehouse though, so you should be safe.

FCP just has really low prices.

That's not the case with this. They have all remaining stock from NPS and are just trying to unload it, thats it.

Yeah. FCP normally doesn't have lower prices than anywhere else, because they sell at MAP. Although they have been known to sell some nice package deals for cheap.

Alias > Legend. My friend has one, and I'll tell you right now, its a good gun, but an Alias is way better. Legends are just nice BKOs.

Guess so, but now my question is, why would anyone ever consider an epiphany or similar priced marker when they could get on of these beasts. Sure they're 2k5, but that really isn't too old...

If i could get my 350 back from the dm4 i bought, i'd probably pick one up. Probably the 2k5.

why

First of all, a Legend is just a spring returned gun like a Fusion or a Promaster. Its not worth the price you pay for it. The only reason they are popular is because HK Army shoots them. For $400 I'd pick one up no problem. The lack of a LPR sucks also. They kick a little more than I'd like. The high efficiency is because air is only used to move the bolt forward and to propel the ball, whereas an Alias also uses air to reset the bolt.

Plain and simple, the Alias is a superior design.

Ask Chris or any other timmy veteran and they will most likely tell you that the 2k5 platform timmy is the best timmy yet. I still shoot 2k5 platform and don't plan on changing.
