First Strike Loader/Magazine Non-Tiberius

Does anyone know a way to auto load first strike rounds in a non-Tiberius marker? I don't want to have to load one at a time via barrel/breach.

No way to do it without pretty heavy modification. You can't fit a "D" shaped object through a "O" shaped hole.

There's quite a few manufacturers trying to do this right now... and frankly they are all failing/giving up.

TACAMO "D" Mags - Over 1 year late and still no positive signs.

Spyder MRX prototype was supposedly first strike capable, the production backed off that feature.

CCM - They are trying to add a first strike option to the T2 as a fun side project. It's been frustrating.

Empire - The SA-17 and Traccer Pump were supposed to get first strike loaders, this is what, almost 2 years past when people hoped they would have them.

TPX - There's some making modified breaches, and modifying the mags to accept first strikes. I've heard mixed things about them. They are probably your best bet for a non-tiberius first strike shooter that you don't need to hand-load.

...

Braddna, I'm curious, why you don't want to use a Tiberius for this?

I'd recommend the 9.1 over the T4.

T4 is more of a cool toy then a great paintball marker.

9.1's lower cost, air options, and ability to reconfigure into a pistol far out-way the high cost and larger magazines of the T4.

Don't get me wrong, if you really want a T4 for the AR15 similarities and have the cash, by all means, enjoy. But if you want an excellent first strike platform for paintball, look no further then the 9.1.

Grab a 9.1 and 3 extra mags (and a remote line if you don't want to deal with 12 grams) and you are still at about half the cost of a T4.

You can also get the 13ci tank/stock combo for the 9.1. A really slick addition that does away with the need for .12grams or a remote.

Check out the start of this video to see a simple and great way to load first strikes for ego/etek.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afc3p...&feature=share

The gist is instead of taking off the barrel, you pop the bolt out via the field strip and then slide the first strike infront of the bolt. Simple and much quicker then the taking the barrel off method.

have you considered a scenerio dreams option? www.sceneriodreams.com has a bunch of stuff like this. pretty sure they just made a sniper for specifically first strike/sniper rounds (they sell the sniper rounds)

Didn't know they ever finished it. Thought it was still "in development"

Hmm, think I see a hint of an old extreme low pressure gun in the Scenario Dreams' sniper rifle...


and the old Airstar SuperNova.

I have had a t9 and currently own a t8.1 the t8 is just as accurate as the t9 but smaller and cooler. Get extended mags like me and be good to go. Currently in process of getting an extra t8.1 and extended mag so I can duel wield.
