get a 2k2 or GZ timmy instead. there better.
Sure, maybe you can lend him the extra $400.
Besides, if he wanted an electro, he would have mentioned it (probably). Don't say they're better either, because I happen to hate Timmys (not everyone shares your opinion).
For the price, I think the Outkast is unbeatable as far as Cockers go. You don't have to worry about upgrading a thing on it (all the pneus are fine, bolt and valve are fine. Trigger frame doesn't rock, but it's alright) except for the barrel. At the most, get a Tungsten Hammer, Mutant Bolt, and do some work with the trigger frame.
