I'm not intending to be a jerk here, but I don't really want to take part in a conspiricy theroy or anything like that. I have been hit before with a ball traveling at 350+ FPS at a distance of lesss than 10 feet, so I believe in this safety device. I'm not going to debate weather or not it's needed.

With that said, I am only concerned that I have been duped be someone. Either by RockStar ot Tiberus, I don't know. I don't care. I bought this marker to be field safe.

The gentleman that I spoke with just before I ordered the marker told me that they came from tib, and that of the couple he has looked at he couldn't tell it was previously used. The box that it was delivered in was exactly the same as the one the SA-8 was delivered in. So that's my information.

I will take some pics this morning and share them with you guys.

Yes, it is marked "TIBERIUS R" on the side. S/N "R-054." On the other side is reads "Eye protection specifically designed for paintball must be worn by the user and persons within range."

Last night I took it apart. The trigger block/sear assy is definetly different, as it uses a slightly different spring configuration. The bolt is identical to the SA-8. And, the felief valve is identical. I compared the springs by feel, and yes, they apprear to be the same compression force by feel only.

So I will get some pics this morning.

Here are the pics.

The washer is a little chewed up because I used a screwdriver to hold it while I put the c-clip back in last night.

This will be entertaining.

The different spring configuration in the sear assembly - is it just the lack of a trigger return spring? Or are the bolt stop and rotator springs different too?

Thats very, very strange since the whole entire point of the Tiberius response is that the only problem with the SA8 is the FIXED RELIEF VALVE, instead of the adjustable relief valve of the TAC8.

But the TAC8-R has a fixed valve? Perhaps it is set to a lower PSI making it safer then the SA8, but not as safe as the TAC8?

Strange, strange indeed.

Well, that's what I thought. It was just set lower, kind of like what I did with my SA-8. But once I opened up the valve, I noted the springs were the same. Since that seems to set the pressure relese level...hmmm...

I didn't go as far a pulling off the bolt assembley to compare pin hole, so if that is smaller it should restrict the time for the valve to fire off...I will do that tonight when I get home. It was cold here at 1800 feet in MA, and the right wrench was up in the truck at the top of the driveway. Today it's 56 degrees...go figure...still have about of 2 feet of snow out there... that's New England for ya.

2 Cents...

Just wondering did they change the barrel or does it still have the longer barrel like the SA-8 had?

Check the volume on the chamber and let us know if that's the same as well if you could Python. I would be interested in what Tib has to say on this as well.
