Tiberius 8 - Thoughts?

Well,

I'm pretty well commited to buying a Tib 8, my first brand spanking new marker, ever.

Just looking for some thoughts or opinions on these before i take the final plunge, i do have big hands and have had a chance to examine a couple at the local shop so that's not really an issue; but is there anything anyone here has experienced with these that would give me a bit of insight into any issues that i might have?

thanks

Issues? None, I absolutely love it.
Although if you want we can meet up one day and you can try before you buy.

well, my local shop is nice, they put one of everything out on display so you can take a look at it; the tib 8 i handled must have had it's mag ejected and slamed into place a few hundered if not a few thousand times (judging by wear) and it still slid home with a satisfying 'click'

i've been doing my reading, (agent smith had some good tips) aparently the only real problems i've heard of are the orings shredding with a bad break at the mag.

When you remove the barrel, make sure not to lose the detents, unless you like cleaning paint out of lots of tiny linkages and such.

Every once in a while you should check that all of the pivot pins in the trigger linkages are secure. As far as I can tell, they're pressed in, and I had one pop out during a game once. I've never heard of anyone else having the same problem, though, so it may have been a fluke.

Otherwise, it's basically bulletproof. Shoot, my brother ejected a charged mag onto a concrete floor from 4 feet up. There's now a fleck of paint missing from the mag, and there's a chip in my garage floor. The mag still works perfectly; these things are tough.

Buy extra mags. Otherwise, it's a super solid sidearm. I've played with it as a backup and a primary and it works great either way.

Biggest tip I have is if you eject a partially depleted mag (to check for more balls for example), shake the marker once. There are a couple balls outside the stack that will sit in the marker, and you'll crush them into gooey paste if you cram a mag back in.

Another thing is to remember that if the mag seems "stuck" without air, the CO2 will give it plenty of push so you just have to catch it.

I've got 2 with 4 mags, and it's a great setup. They're low-maintenence, reliable, gas-efficient, and just plain cool. The only problems with them are crappy O-rings on the mags (buy spares) and the barrel assembly is difficult to deal with. Other than that, perfect!

I bought one second hand from a teamate, still in works like a champ. I got the o-ring kit for the mag only to find a broken ring that wasn't included. I wrote Tiberius about it. It required some special tool so they sent me the entire 'nipple' assembly in the mail for FREE! Great marker backed up with great customer service.
