Now if the double feed issue can be resolved, you will have another customer

Will it shoot better than a normal PB, yes.
I have two T9's. Only the T9.1 with Lapco riffled barrel really socks em in there at distances over 30 yds (up to 100) with a less than pie plate spread :-)
How consistent is it on HPA, fps-wise?

You could always not buy a ball smaller than 680, problem solved. The problem is small paint.

Speaking of which, what is the ID of my barrel of the stock MR5?

So you've shot an MR5 in a game, then?

No I have not, however I have shot my T9 in a game many times. As I stated earlier that marker has (a Lapco 686) non-rifled barrel that's made for FS and that marker specifically. My T9.1 has a rifled 683 that is spot on. Out-shoots it without question marked off at 10 yd intervals starting at 20. At 30 yds (for example) the rifled barrel double taps one on top of the other. The non-rifled shoots a 3-6 inch spread.

So I base my judgement on experience with 2 very similar TA markers, side by side, rifled against non-rifled.

Haha I know the Tiberius is good, I'm wondering about the MR5's consistency.

with some thing. If they decide not to we will produce the product that
