Good Deal

I was wondering if $350 is a good price for an Alias. I'm looking for a high end, but semi cheap gun that I can rip with on those bad days, and it seems like it's a fairly good deal. The seller says it was a backup gun so I'm hoping there wasn't much use, but should I ask for more details or jump on this deal?

Just my $0.02 but it's just about always better to know more. I'd ask for further details. Working condition, upgrades or machine work done to it, etc.

$350 is a good price, especially if its in good shape. I paid $413 for mine without a barrel a couple months ago. I've been using Intimidators for years now and have had great luck with them.

Heres a picture: http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d164/atb1991/pic.jpg
He said it was a backup marker for a member of the Oakland Assasins and that it was hardly used, I'm thinking I'll jump on it and if I don't like it turn it around and make a few bucks.

That's a Texas Storm 2004 Timmy, Oak's Assassins never used those. Either he doesn't know what the gun is, or he's trying to rip you.

Yea its a storm with an Alias frame...now not so much worth the $350. I don't know about the Assassins never using them, but that detail isn't really important.

What hobbes said. A real alias is worth more than that. Steer clear, id say. Pick up a cheap AKALMP viking..id say. maybe 400 dollars or less depending. They are wonderful.

Should I tell him he doesn't know what hes talking about and try and bargain the price down, or just move on to another gun? I am slightly worried about getting ripped off since he seems a bit immature and doesn't have ffedback of any sort.

I say move on, if he doesn't have feedback and is trying to sell a gun claimed to be better than what's pictured...

As Cunha said, vikings are nice guns.
