Okay, so I got my T9.1 Ranger a few months ago. I had been waiting for a LONG TIME to get it(3-4 years). I was worried when I clicked "Confirm Order", because it's a LOT of money(at least to me, because I'm usually pretty cheap), but once I had it in my hands, I have to say, it's worth every penny.

So, lets get on with it. My T9.1 Ranger is pretty vanilla; All I've added is a RAP4 bipod and a Tiberius Arms Suppressor. I'll start with my reasoning behind the 5 star ratings.

Appearance; 5 Stars
Why? Because If I didn't like the look of it, I wouldn't have bought it. I think it looks badass, but for someone who wants a military replica, this gun is NOT based on a real firearm.

Performance; 5 Stars
Why? Well, I've fired somewhere around 150-200 .68 paintballs through it(from my home, not out on the field)and the ONLY break I've gotten 'til now is because of this; I slid the mag in for the first time, all loaded. The CO2 leaked a bit and kicked the mag back out a little bit. I didn't know that 1 paintball had left the mag and was in between the mag and the breach, so when I pushed the mag in the second time, It crushed it in the breach. I was pretty mad about that, since usually when that happens, you pretty much have to take the gun apart to clean it, but I got my way around it with some tissue and a chopstick

Reliability; 5 Stars
Why? As I've already said, I've only shot 150-200 rounds through it, and I haven't had any balls break just by shooting it. it's been working perfect since day 1, so I had to give it 5 stars.

Value; 5 Stars
Why? When you look at it, you kind of wonder; "Why is this marker so expensive". You might never find the answer, but once it's in your hands, you'll never miss those $350(I can't say the same if you paid $450 for the T9 Elite, but it's probably similar).


PROS:

Accuracy;
With .68 paintballs, it's pretty good. I mean, I've only shot 2 other PB markers(they were both speedball markers), and it seemed more accurate than them. I can't say with First Strikes, and I'm pretty sure it is more accurate, but I haven't tried them because I believe they are WAY too expensive(which I will talk about in the CONS).

Aesthetics;
You're looking for a milsim looking gun? It's got that going for it. I personally think it's BADASS, but that's my opinion. Keep in mind that it isn't based on a real life counterpart. If you want a real gun-looking marker, look at RAP4. This marker looks like it could be based off a real gun, but it isn't. Once you're past that, if you like the look, well, you'll fall in love with it.

Versatility;
This is definitely one of its greatest strong points. There's not a TON of aftermarket parts out there(like there is for the 98 Custom), but if you want to screw on a 16"/18" barrel on there, you have the money to pay for that and first strikes, you can call that a sniper. You just keep the T9.1 Ranger stock, it's a good Battle Rifle. You want to take the shroud off, run it with just Stock>T9.1>Suppressor, you've got a semi-auto PDW. You want to run it pistol? Take everything off of it. The possibilities are endless(as long as your wallet is too. Not saying that the accessories are expensive, but they aren't free).

Customization;
The whole T9 family all have picatinny rails. This is great because MOST real firearm attachments/gadgets(don't quote me on this), whether they be weaver mounts or picatinny mounts, will fit on this rifle/pistol. That means scopes, red dots, lights, lasers, bipods, foregrips, and anything/everything in between.

Left Hand Ergonomics;
Well, with all the T9.1 packages having a fore-grip included, I'd say the left hand ergonomics are pretty good. If you're NOT using the fore-grip, some rail covers would be suggested, or some gloves perhaps. Apart from that it's pretty comfortable to hold. The stock might not have any recoil to punch out, but it sure helps you keep it steady.

CONS:

Price;
At a hefty $349.00 for the Ranger package(which only contains 1 mag), this isn't a beginner's gun. if you can afford it, go right ahead! But players on a low-end budget might want to look at something more affordable first.
The mags aren't cheap either. At $30 a mag(or $50 for First Strike mags, I THINK), they're definitely something you have to take into consideration. I'd suggest looking online for used ones. I got mine for a guy who bought them in bulk; I got [3] T8 mags for $15 each, all BRAND NEW, and all I have to do to get them to work with the T9.1 is file a portion off the top.

*Just so I can say I warned you; T9.1/8.1 mags will work in the T8/9 WITHOUT modification(or at least I believe). T8/9 mags with NOT work with the T8.1/9.1 WITHOUT modification. This is because the T8.1/9.1's barrel is thicker, so the mags for those ones has a concave top, to fit right under the barrel, while the T8/9's mags have a convex top. Here's a tutorial thread.
If you're planning on using it as a Sniper, and you want to use First Strikes? Get ready to spend a little bit more. At $40 for a 100 rounds($40 would buy you around 2000 regular .68 paintballs at most retail stores), you'll definitely want to pick your shots carefully, because you're shooting 40 cents per First Strike, instead of 2 cents per .68 paintball.

Weight;
Although the sheer weight of it makes you feel that you've got your money's worth(which is nice, because I think everyone's had that "Ooh, that thing looks badass!" moment, and then you pick it up, and it weighs less than a shoe, and then it goes from "Awesome" to "oh, it's plastic"), it's weight can be somewhat tiring in the long run. If you work out, just disregard this whole part, but I'm the average guy(if not worst)when it comes to muscle power. I'm not weak, but I'm not too strong either(I'm 6'1" and weigh 150lbs, see if that says anything), so after holding my T9.1 in rifle form, my arm gets tired within 25 minutes, and if you're playing for a day(around 5 hours at most fields around me), it can get pretty tiring. A sling probably wouldn't be a bad idea, but just a little something to keep in mind. If you work out on a regular basis though, you shouldn't have a problem. If you DON'T work out, like me, get a sling.

Right Hand Ergonomics(this is a little bit of PRO AND CON, so read on);
Well, I have medium sized hands, and even though I feel comfortable holding my T9.1, I have to mention that it isn't just a 'little' pistol grip. I was pretty surprised when I got mine, having not seen it in real life before. If you have medium-large hands(judging by glove size), you shouldn't have a problem, but if you have small hands, I'd suggest trying one out first, maybe a friend's or something. If you can hold it comfortably, then the ergonomics are pretty good, EXCEPT the mag release is a LITTLE BIT hard to reach. You pretty much have to let go of the grip to release the mag(at least I do). If this becomes a concern to you, Killjoy Industries and Lapco make metal index finger mag releases(thumb for lefty, but if you're a lefty, you're probably not having this problem).

Overall; If you're looking for a versatile woodsball/mislim marker, that gives you the option of using a hopper OR mags, CO2/HPA tank OR 12g CO2 cartridges, and that can use first strikes for that extra accuracy(Flame shield ON!), and you have a moderately deep wallet, then I'd recommend this marker.

I, TheAntiHeroHimself, am NOT responsible for you spending your money on this marker, whether you like it or not. If you buy it and do NOT like it, I am not responsible for your actions.

This gun is one of the most accurate woodsball style guns I have ever used. The scope is a nice feature too, and the bipod makes it super stable. You get around 6-7 mags off of one fill of the stock tank. Very realistic looking. Awesome gun.

I purchased this with the intent of using it was a first strike rifle in woodsball. However Tiberius never released their airless mags and it became cost prohibitive so I just ran it with a 50rd hopper. However, it just doesn't feed properly and chopped paint to the point it was useless. It does work well with mags, it's just that the mags get very expensive.
