Tiberius Arms T8.1 SOCOM is it worth it?

Need your input guys,

Plan to get me the T8.1 Socom that comes w/the silencer:

1. What's the functional difference between T8.0 and T8.1? ie is the trigger better or better accuracy?
(I know the 8.1 has the lower rail for flashlight & what not)

2. The "First Strike Compatible Magazine Kit" once the mags are "upgraded" can it still be "downgraded" to use the regular paintball?

3. Does the Mock silencer muffle the sound when the pistol fired or there's no difference?Is just there for the looks?

the 8.1 is already first strike compatible and it has a 1 piece receiver so you can mount a remote line to it

2. The "First Strike Compatible Magazine Kit" once the mags are "upgraded" can it still be "downgraded" to use the regular paintball?

the first strike magazines can be used with first strike rounds or regular .68 caliber paint

3. Does the Mock silencer muffle the sound when the pistol fired or there's no difference?Is just there for the looks?
it is really just for looks...
I have a mock silencer on my t8 and it doesn't do anything except make it harder to holster

I would rec omens calling Tiberius and order a t8.1 directly from them with a threaded barrel and silencer
it'll cost extra but if you want the silencer then that's what you'll have to do

Thanks for the input James, regarding your comment:

"the first strike magazines can be used with first strike rounds or regular .68 caliber paint"

So I can use both type of paintball w/o any modification to it?

Is it true Tac 8 & SA8 mags won't fit Tac 8.1 pistol?

I would honestly recommend not getting the silencer with it. it does absolutely nothing. I even tried to mod it to make it functional without success. it is just more weight and makes it more difficult to aim.

ya I got it when I was young and nieve when I got my tib 8 and I also do like the weight of it with the silencer but it's more looks and feel than anything and you can use 1 strike, sa-8, and tib 8 mags in a Tiberius 8. you can only use the first strike mag in the 8.1 without modification

So you can modify the SA8 to fit the Tac 8.1? Is it complicated or just need some "dremel-ing"?

the sa-8 mags and the tac 8 mags are the same thing
and iirc the 8.1 can only use first strike mags
