When target shooting

....DISCLAIMER: this was for target shooting only and experimenting with first strike rounds. Never fire a paintball marker at someone at velocities greater then 300fps....
For regular paintballs
My recommendation, work within your field limit. Differences in accuracy are marginal and could be well within statistical variation.
Here's a link to some vids of the MP7/8.1 remote setup I put together for Chicago.
The out the back remote kit for the 8.1 (about $25-$30 at last check from Tiberius directly) is a much better solution than older 8.0 style remote through the mag. With the newer remote out the back you can freely swap mags while still remaining aired up. Any number of mags without loosing air, or having a loud air hiss giving away your position. With the remote through the mag you are either tied to reloading a single magazine in the middle of play, or having more then one remote through mag, requiring you to de-gas and re-gas the remote line to different mags with each magazine change.
If you don't plan to use first strikes (or your field doesn't allow them). You should give the TPX a serious consideration. I prefer the feel and natural point-aiming I personally get out of a Tiberius. But denying that the TPX has matured into a very fine and paintball pistol would be blind brand loyalty. The TPX like the 8.1 also works well on a remote.
(also the T8.0...)
If the idea of a remote seems too cumbersome/restrictive and you are only going to use 12 grams, and only going to use paint. Used T8/T9s are often a crazy good bargain.
