4 (or more) Questions for experienced Tiberius T9 owners.

I'm interested in trying my hand at legit paintball sniping. I have a Tiberius T9 with a first strike bolt and mag upgrade. The mag's got a remote line adapter on it. I'm not sure how or what I did while installing this stuff but the reg seems to be creeping in a way that gives me a NASTY first shot velocity spike. I'm talking like ~425. That needs fixin' first. After that I don't plan on shooting regular .68s with this. Just FSRs. I'm thinking I'll slap a 2x or 3x scope on it. I'm not sure about reloads/extra ammo as I don't plan on buying more mags and the remote line feeds into the mag I've got.
These are my questions.
1. WTF did I do to my reg and how do I fix it?
2. Once fixed is it worth it to get a rifled barrel over the stock one for FSRs and if so which one? Short or long? The T9 can be configured as a pistol but I like the Idea of a vert foregrip. Thoughts?
3. Is there anything like a dogleg stock available for the T9? Something I can get my face behind the gun with but still have shoulder stability.
4. Any suggestions on how to carry/load extra FSRs on the field?

1. Disassemble and clean the regulator and inspect all o-rings. Also, be sure to adjust the relief valve properly- once it's set, you shouldn't need to adjust it unless you change the max velocity you're playing at if you're using HPA.

2. There are no rifled barrels for the T9 (if you're talking about the T9.1 disregard the above about the relief valve).

3. There are no new dogleg stocks for the T9. Specops Paintball used to make them so, you could try searching for a used one. It wouldn't be hard for any of the machinists on here to make one.

4. 10rd tubes can be cut down for carrying FS rounds. Don't count on reloading mags under fire. A short length of dowel can be carried in the pocket and used to quickly depress the follower (push down follower, twist, and it's locked). That's easier than trying to pull the original FS mag follower down.

Tip: If you're going to get a scope (vice a simple red dot), get yourself an adjustable riser. you'll need it to effectively lob shots.

Awesome! Thanks for the advice. Just so I'm clear; A rifled barrel for a T9.1 will NOT fit on a T9? Even with the first strike mag and bolt?

Thats correct, it wont fit. I own both the 9 and the 9.1.

I have ~the~ 686 Lapco FS Barrel (16 inch) made for the T9 if your looking to upgrade. I now run my 9 as a pistol so I dont need it. I was looking around today and I think Lapco only makes the 690 now for the FS rounds in that length.

You will need a adjustable riser if your going to use a scope. APRv2 or the TA model are both good. But the TA riser 1st generation had some stability problems (they fixed with gen2).

One trick to carrying First Strike rounds in 10-round tubes for easy reloading is to stack them in the tube in alternating directions. You won't be able to carry as many in a tube this way, but they won't collapse into one another and will be easier to pick out and load.

I like this Idea. Mag only holds eight and I like the idea of one tube=one reload.

I never tried that. How many fit in a Ten round tube when done this way?
As for myself, I just cut my tubes down, flared the end (melting and stretching) and re-attached my caps. I also used a needle to poke a tiny hole in the bottom of the tube as the last one in the tube can get a minor vacuum seal that keeps the roundin the tube.
