Will you be keeping your old style timi?

I am just wondering, with all the new timi's coming out, even though it may be a long time, do you plan on keeping yours? IMHO I think mine is just as good as the news ones. Hey its a timi right?

Well, if they switch over to a 45 frame then deffinitely no. I just got my timmi in yesterday and I love the grip frame.

Darnit! I voted no. I meant to vote yes.
The intimidator is a great gun but I will probably get the SOB and 45 frame though. No need to get the new gun.

if they do come out with a 45 grip, then i will buy the grip frame by itself and keep my current timi, just replace the frame.

What does the SOB board do? also what EXACTLY is the LP mod, no one so far has given me a clue to what that will do to make my gun so much better.

The SOB (Semi-Only Board) was made to comply with the NPPL ruling for an OEM semi-only board in 2002 tournaments. But Bob wouldn't take away all of those modes of fire without giving us something back . The SOB is no longer limited to 14bps. It is capable of around 35bps (realistically the gun cycles around 18bps but now it is no longer heald back by the board). The board also has less debounce timming, creating a more responsive trigger. These both add up to a higher rof.
If you want to see what the LP mod is or how to do it, go here http://www.pettypb.com/timilp.html . What it does is lower the input pressure from around 280 (after your hp reg) to under 200 (removed hp reg). Less pressure means that its easier on paint, quieter, and has less kick. The drawback is that less pressure, means more gas consumption. Personally I noticed very little increase in consumption, but I've got a 114/4500 . Hope that helps.

I love the way my timmy is now, no problems and I find it balances beatifully. The only thing on the new timmy I'm really even interested in is that the bolt is enclosed, which is a drag because I dont think there will ever be an enclosed bolt body for the intimidator. I just think they look much better, and keep dirt out. Other than that, I'm happy as hell with my marker, and wont be changing it for anything, not even a newer timmy
