You guys have a point there, but there are intrinsic attributes to a marker that affect accuracy-or, better, consistency.

I agree, don't do a long test for it, but take two stock guns, clamp them down, laser-sight them to a target and do a few tests, one with good 12-grams and one with Wal-Mart brand ones.

Just out of curiosity I would like to know why you switched from the tac8 to the tpx.

I can't speak for Midnight, but for someone running dual pistols, the TPX is way better. It's lighter, the mags are waaaaaaay cheaper and lighter, it just makes for a way less bulky setup.

im pretty sure he still uses both. In terms of duals they both have advantages. The tibs have a bigger mag (17 round mag vs 7/8 round mag) but the TPXs would be significantly lighter and I can imagine that would make you faster during quick walkon games.

agreed... at the end, just tell us which one you think is better.
(if you do in fact believe one is better)

Fixed...

He does still run both pistol setups... I'm sure he will come on here and answer the question himself...

He is THE go to guy on dual pistols in paintball... I think if he honestly just points out what he likes/dislikes about each one, that would be the best review... Different strokes for different folks...

And, Tiberius Arms would be smart to get off their lazy butts and put 2 new T8.1's in his hands like Tippmann did with the TiPXs... That way the video would be comprehensive...

He is still using the original T8's!! Wait till you get those new 8.1's brotha!!

Can't wait for the review!


PS- call me bro, we needs to chat...

Also, comparing your experiences with Tiberius and Tippman would be nice. I know if something goes wrong with a TiPX, Tippman's going to have your back, but I've not really heard much about Tiberius Arms.

I like this idea.

Tiberius Arms has some of the best customer service I have ever found in a large company.

Glad to hear it since I recently traded a TiPX for a 9.1...

If you ever have any problems with it, Tiberius will help you trouble shoot it over the phone and send you free spare parts if need be. They're great with all that
