Whaddaya mean by old style alias and shortened 2k5 alias?
there was the rage alias, which was a custom milled/shortened alias for miami rage, but otherwise all aliases are the same.
Mine's a regular alias, and if i had to guess, it was probably a "parts gun" at one point-its got a 2k2 LPR+volley on it, even though being an alias it has the gen3/2k5 front block, and its got a 2k2 style ram+ram cap in it (Idk if the first aliases came with the spike rams, but I know spike rams are gen3 stock equipment-mine came with a bumpered ram), along with a LED frenzy board that had to have been taken out of a defiant2 or something (cause aliases all came with LCD frenzys, as did all gen3 guns I think...)
and somebody swapped out the stock alias frame for a regular 2k5 frame like you'd see on a 2k5 timmy (where they took 2k2 bodies, put 2k5 frames on, and then sold them as the 2k5 intimidator).

The stock alias frame vs the 05 frame, neither one has an advantage over the other-the 05 frame is the same size and everything as the alias frame..so idk.

It shoots pretty good though IMO, considering I literally got it set up in all of about 2 minutes, and i had never shot a timmy before or anything. Running 70ish psi on the LPR iirc.

My timmy kinda needs a new board, it will get a tadao infamous or 7th element board eventually. It works as is, but seemingly I cant get it to go into ramping mode (i think the tourney lock might be on, but i remember when i got it it came in ramping mode, and it took me a while to get it to go into semi-and at first it would fire once on teh pull, once on the release-sign of the switch/board wearing out..)

Last time i used it the eyes worked fine at the beginning of the day, but some games they would literally like not work, like it wouldn't shoot with a ball in the chamber sometimes, but turning them off fixed that, no chops.
That is just due to a low battery i assume though, I "clicked" that gun a lot when i got it, the trigger on it is GREAT. has a dragon trigger. And the feel of the gun in ya hands is what i like so much about the gun, i run it no grips and it just feels right in ya hands.

Its my understanding that the initial runs of the Alias did have the old style ram. But the rest of the stuff definitely sounds like a parts gun. IMO the alias body is still the nicest looking Intimidator (Vice and G6R not withstanding)

Don't forget, Bob recommends bottoming out both the HPR and LPR before gassing up the gun for the day. Then you bring the pressure up slowly to what you want it to shoot at. Then you leave it gassed up all day. I personally never felt there was much of a difference with the timmies that I had, but that is straight from the man himself.

I really like my alias, the thing ****ing RIPS and shoots pretty good imo. Board in it is ****y (and last time i played, midway through the day the eyes would just stop working some games-gotta be the battery for sure on that) but it still shewts just fine.

I've still got a SP nerve that i havent used since probably 2007, its beat up and needs a gauge but that should be it. Manifold orings were out last i knew but i did change them out so in theory it should work.
Has working eyes and everything..
autocockers do sound cool but thats about it

I hate the way ions/vibes/SP1s sound. that clunk clunk clunk noise drives me INSANE. same with the tippmann and spyder firing noise.

I cant stand tippmanns either. Except for like an old prolite/68carbine/procarbine, that would be cool to have kinda i think. tippmann owners seem pretty retarded though.
Alright who jacked swizzles keyboard??? Actually sounds like a smart dude.

Well, it's been a long time since I had to remember any of this stuff so correct me if I'm wrong but...

Were there not Alias versions of the 2k5 Timmy and the Timmy 2.5?

I was trying to say any of the classic bodied Intimidators w/ the slimmer 2k5 frame were the ****.

Paintball is becoming more and more like the outside world and my life over the last 10 years is becoming to look more and more like a prison cell. I have never seen some of these guns and I feel like I'm coming out of jail asking what cell phones are...lol...oh my.

An ego looks like an Intimidator that was essentially a pneumatic spyder. Ipso facto an ego looks like a spyder.

The PE heads are going to slam the **** out of this comment. I can just see it.

to answer that question:

the classic intimidators, had carry over parts put into the 2k2 platforms, the 2k2 platforms had carry over parts into the alias platforms, when we hit the major short redesign of gen 3/4 the torpedo and some small elements of the internals were carried over. Bob Long generally uses parts from previous generations to keep costs low and fine tune his products, some view this as lazy, frankly i think it contributes to his bear killing behaviors.

If anything has taught anyone about the Alias style, to mix parts and tap front blocks to bring up older styles, it is a pain in the ***. The old classic bodies were ugly, the lug at the end made of SS / chrome were ugly.....

Now we have the G6R which is in essence, another timmy. A timmy, like an ego, is just an ebladed spyder with a few additional parts. Add a ram and return system, you have yourself the same basic idea. Frankly, I found the 2K2 platform a really beautiful in theory platform, and performance wise nothing but an irritation. I'd rather have sex with a hairy east german woman of the 80's than shoot one again....just saying...
