Anybody tried any Tiberius arms markers?

I am thinking about getting one but I am just a little hesitant as I am not sure if I would like the mag feed. Could any of you guys that own one of these share some light on them for me? Thanks in advance for any help!

I've had a T8 and a T9 in my collection for a while. Love them both. My T9 has the First Strike upgrade (standard on all new models).

Mag fed is a ton of fun, but also a challenge. A big challenge. It can be harder than stock class pump at times. Bug you do feel like a complete bad *** when you slap a fresh mag in before making a big move (which you'll probably fail at, but if this is your thing it ain't about being "competitive").

You're going to want extra mags, a lot of them, and that can be expensive. Though you'll make it up in the long run on paint savings. My full loadout for a casual game with my T8 pistol has me carrying 6 extra mags. With the one in the gun that's still only 56 shots for a whole game, so a bag of 500 lasts you a long, long time.

That sounds nice. I am thinking about getting the t9.1 ranger. I like the look of it because it is not to expensive and it can run on a HPA tank and use a regular hopper. But I think I would feel like more of a bad *** using mags. lol

Yeah, I have used t8s and a t9 ranger actually, it's good, setting it up for constant air is a must if using a hopper. It's had good versatility too, but it's fairly expensive, if you can pick one up on here for cheap I would take it.

Cool! Thanks. I am thinking about picking up a t9 Ranger or a t9.1 Ranger. There is a t9 up for a $99 start price on ebay.

I agree the paint is nice and it can be upgraded to save air as well, those 12grams can get on your nerves, but also the angle the ball goes is a little different than most markers I have shot. Still its funa nad once you get a setup on that your comfortable with there is nothing like getting a great elimination on a guy unloading a hopper of paint at you.
