Exclamation should i buy T8.1 or kingman eraser

hey guys

im in Canada and can get a crazy deal on either :

1. kingman eraser (not the chaser, brand new)
or
2. Tiberius T8.1 PLAYERS PACK ( brand new )

- i know the eraser is .43 cal. NOT AN ISSUE because i mostly play woodsball + scenario on friends land. rarely go to "feilds"
- THIS IS NOT MY PRIMARY, I just want a sidearm

also. i have been told the that eraser is only accurate for about 60 ft. vs the tiberius at 100+ ft. is this true ? ( normal paint, not counting FS )

im looking for oppinions from ppl who have used the t8.1 or eraser, i guess my main consern is HOW much better accuracy and distance is the t8 vs the eraser.

lastly, is it true that the .43 cal paint will drop sooner and not go as far, also that wind can make them go wild because they are lighter ?

thanks so much

Dan

Go with the T8.1, least you'll know the rounds will be fresher than buying the .43 cal rounds off the shelf at Walmart.

well the t8.1 has a big grip that some people are not fond of and I don't like the trigger
and the eraser is smaller but less range with the .43 caliber
personally I plan on buying a t8.1 when the price goes down

.43 cal paint does not perform as well as .68 cal paint, and neither performs as well as First Strike.

The only advantages the KT pistols have over the T8.1 are size/weight and efficiency; you do get roughly 80 shots out. The bad news is the range is extremely subpar. If you're using it for bunkering/stealth moves where you're very close (50 feet or less), you should be fine..otherwise the performance is crippling.

Also, KTs .43 paint is awful. The shell is ridiculously brittle, and breaks in the magazine. Get RAP paint. I literally broke a .43 ball dropping it on my sock from 3 feet. It can't handle the spring pressure.

The T8.1 because it will use the same paint as your main marker and if you ever need to rely just on your pistol (main marker goes down or you're playing pistol only) you will have the same range.
