Tiberius T9 Accuracy

hey!
i'm getting a new Tberius T9 (not the t9.1) and i was just wondering how accurate is it with regular .68 paintballs/ is it noticably more accurate than tippmann a5s and markers like that? and how many magazines should i plan on buying?
Thanks,
the doctor

It's no more or less accurate then any other paintball marker shooting a paintball at 280-300 FPS.

It is however believed to be a more consistent design then the Tippman A5. The added consistency, the ability to shoot the same velocity, shot to shot, aids in the precieved "accuracy".

If you want to shoot limited paint using 8 round magazines ... the T9 is a great platform. It's consistent and compact. And Limited paint play brings a fun changing new element to the game for experienced players.

If you want to shoot ropes of paint to suppress your opponent. There are far better suited choices out there for a hopper feed marker. The Mechanical Phenom is excellent marker to shoot lots of paint, while still keeping the mil-sim aesthetic of the T9. It uses a similar internal bolt/valve system to the T9. Giving it a better consistency (and precieved accuracy) over the A5.

Now on to the special case.... First Strike rounds. These beauties ARE more accurate and get much greater distance than a paintball. The First Strike Upgraded-T9 (or Stock T9.1) is an amazing platform to shoot these rounds.

So to finally answer your question: a T9 when using First Strike Rounds, is far more accurate than other paintball markers shooting regular paint.

Personally I'd rather use my T9 with hopper feed than a Phenom. For one thing, never cared for the cyclone feed. Just too big of a target hanging off the side of the gun. While the T9 hopper adapter does stick out more than it really needs to, you can still tilt your hopper behind cover when you need to.

Second, it's a much more streamlined design. The amount of metal that can be hacked off a phenom is down right ridiculous. The T9, you slip off the fore grip, take a section off the barrel, and you suddenly have an ultra tight setup for when you really need to tuck into cover.

As an added bonus, you can switch to mag play and/or first strike play with a simple twist of the barrel.

I bet you got all those eliminations and still used a fraction of the paint you would have normally.

dude, for 12grams, go to sports stores and ask for already opened boxes.

I bought 38 from an opened 40 pack for $10. Score. And it was a quality brand, too, if that matters.


If you want "better accuracy", then try using bigger bore paint which is high quality (which will still be inexpensive since you'll only need like 1 bag to hold you over for 2 days)

um the T9's accuracy is unsurpassed IMO. here is my rating of it after using it this past weekend.

Accuracy= 9-10 (this is based on other guns that I have used it would rank way higher than any tippman, again IMO.)

Rate of Fire= 6-10 (Can not squeeze off rounds rapidly will jam the gun up. then again Idk about it if I had an ehopper if that would help or not.)

Range= 8.5-10 (definately can volley shots way further than a lot of the other guns out there...accept speedball guns. but for the money way better than most.)


Recommended upgrades

Lapco 14" barrel
Raised rail and dot site
electric hopper
and remote line attachment

(magizine feed is not my style unless you intend on using the T9 as a sidearm, but then your not using this superior marker to its full potential
