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.
