Need help trouble shooting/repairing T8

Hello fellow tiberius users i have run into a bit of a problem with a T8. I am not a die hard follower of Tiberius since i am new to pistols all though a T8 was the first gun i ever shot. I do know tiberius makes the top of the line best there is pistols for sure. Recently i ran into a problem with my t8. In a big game i was at last fall i was playing my first game with the pistol even though i had owned it so long and me and my squad of 8 people were the last of our team and i got shot so before i headed out i handed my friend my t8 and let him use it in a desperate last stand out numbered and out gunned. After about 10-15 minutes my friend came back covered yellow in paint (what even with a great pistol i couldnt have expected im to make out a winner that time) he handed me my gun. It seemed in great condition the same way i handed it to him and i ejected my 1 cartridge and replaced the Dead CO2 (which is why i suspected it not properly ejecting) and loaded it with 6 paintballs (so not to stress the old spring/cartridge to much) and i continued to my next game. As i ran out of paint and my hopper ran empty i dropped my gun (its a tippman it can probably get thrown off a cliff and still work) and whipped out my pistol for use to conserve my paint and C02 (20 oz empty) and i proceded to get in a close quarters situation and as i jumped out from behind i pulled the trigger at a opponent in my sight and my gun went wild. The cartridge dispensed all of the paint just fine but the gun just unloaded all 6 shots in one pull of the trigger and it unloaded the whole 12 gram. I got out obviously due to all of the noise i made and i proceded to try it out again aat the chrono and the same thing happend. Any help? I tried cleaning it and in the procedure i messed up since im used to AGD guns and i lost some pieces and screws. Also how much does it cost to send in the gun to be serviced? and if i do send it in should i send in the cartridge with the gun? Im a begginer and in other words a noob when it comes to tiberius arms and it was my first gun and i only shot it. It was a hand me down a long time ago and i never took care of it well and that has come back to haunt me. I love this pistol and i need some help and suggestions.

From what it sounds like you have a or sticky seer. Since the gun is out of warrenty its may end up costing you a chunk of change. If you do send it to tiberius for repair you will not need to send a 12 gram.
I do not know where you are located but if you are near the upper mid west Id be glad to take a look at it for you. I have amassed a good sized cashe tiberius parts.

Dont quote me on this but last I read I think it starts at 20 plus shipping both ways. You would have to call tiberius on monday to get an precise amount.

We have all been there.. as you are taking things apart you plan to leave sit for even a few hours your best friends will be a sharpie and ziplock sandwich bags.. you can put parts in and label the bags accordingly .. I do that with my marker parts and car parts

Especially with pistol parts. I am used to a large open air valve from my Automag. Hard to lose those parts for some reason.

That normally results in the gun not firing. Some of the older Tac 8's didnt come with a trigger return spring.

No as I said I the reason why I dont know why I fixed it or not is because I couldn't put the trigger back in. But I do remember that (i think) when I refilled the clip all the way after the game I remember I tried pulling the trigger but it was a lot harder than what it should have been and it seemed to be very hard to pull compared to the others. So know besides that one time I have had no trouble.
