Cost effective switch first strike/tiberious

I'm looking to make the switch to a t9.1, but the price tag is ridiculous at the moment (I'm a senior in highschool soon to begin college). I dearly love the sport and the lone wolf style of play, I've made ridiculous shots with a flatline on my a5 and the increased range is nice but the accuracy just isn't enough for me. I'm looking to find a cost effective way to make a switch to first strike but the rounds themselves aren't cheap, by any means.if i couldmake the change to a marker that could use standard paint as well as first strike for under say 300 id do it in a heart beat(i assume everyone would), perrhaps what im looking for is a middle of the road gun that can interchange the rounds flawlessly, doing the muzzle loading, one shot isn't the way I want to do it.
if anyone has any other options for a feed tube style loading mechanism that can be affixed to an a5 right reciever half i have a spare set, just to try out the first strike for myself, im very impressed but not $699+75cents a round impressedso if anyone has a sophisticated way to feed the rounds into a reciever half, i have no machining background nor the ability to have it done, so any help would be greatly appreatiated.

The T9.1 ranger package is only $350 and you could do everything you mentioned .. if you think that's ridiculous, I was late paying my college tuition one year and the late payment alone was $250!!!

Spyder is coming out with some markers that are first strike capable. I would just hold up and wait, it wont be long until there are alot of markers that can shoot first strike.

spyder's are blowbacks though, if you are shooting a round that costs 75 cents a shot you want a blow forward...much more consistant.

e-trigger?

The 9.1 is tempting but how fast is it? I am going to be shooting out of the hopper most of the time and the idea of a E-trigger and shooting a little faster is important to me. I shoot a Spyder RS its nothing special but its plenty fast enough where I play.

Unfortunately I don't have any way to try the 9.1 and MR5 and compare.

9.0 with conversions are often 250-300 or less. Best cheap way to play FS IMHO.

with first strikes you only really need a shot or two. I've been playing a scenerio game where there was a long hallway, and instead of lobbing paint I just waited for himto pop out and shot him in the goggles. Playing with FS rounds means playing differently, but onc you get used to it it's great.
