Tell me about the T8.1

How is performance on these?

My question basically comes down to this. I am considering simply carrying a 8.1 for "long range" work. I am thinking of carrying one to augment my electro for those times when you just need that little more range / flatter shot. Are there any issues with these I should know before I pursue buying one?

If you're going to just use it for that. Don't bother.

Planning on doing longe range shots with the stock sights?

If you are going to use anything like a scope you might as well go with the t9.1 since it has a rail ready to go.

takes a decent amount of time invested in practicing if you are planning on using it for that. I have seen that done very effectively by an ex-teammate, but he had been using it for that pretty much since the day of release.

Yeh. A fair amount and a lot of it pistol to boot. That being said my main practice gun is a revolver but I figure that should translate well enough

DOnt think that will be cost effectice/ weight effective unless u want to invest a LOT of time/money practicing ur shooting. I have tried FS rounds and was not very impressed. Are they better? Yes. Eight times more expensive than standard paint? Yes. Eight times better performance? No.

FS rounds are something for people who:
a) look to shoot 20-30 rounds a day and no regular paint (still spending more on paint than my 1 bag a day lol)
b) have plenty of money/time to get used to them and are willing to spend it for a limited advantage it gives them (limited but not insignificant!)

I've only shot 16 FSR from my T8.1 so I'm no expert. I however was impressed. The issues I'm aware of are the lack of an ASA and that you don't want to strip it in the field.

FSR are for people who want a better chance to hit what they are aiming at over 100' away and are willing to pay for it and play at a venue that allows them to do so.

You have to familiarize yourself with any equipment you intend to use under fire, FSR are no different.

You may want to look at the Spyder Hammer 7 that will be released soon, it's a pump action mag feed marker that may fit your use perfectly.

I've been using mine for the exact same type of setup that you're talking about. I actually play with 2 of them and use one for regular paint and another for first strikes at long range/backup during reloading. It's a lot of fun to draw the long range pistol
