Did i just goof up?

So I was perusing ebay and found a Tiberius T8 for sale.

Looked to be in very good condition, mag and case included for $70.00 shipped, so I said "why not, been wanting one for years".

I noticed it had a blue VERITAS tactical receiver, and went to look about why it was like that.

I found another for sale for $150.00 and it said velocity was 400-500 fps for non lethal.

So, since I wanted to use it for paintball, did I goof? Can I adjust it for lower fps use?

Thanks for the help! Either way, I will keep it.

We'll you can always flip it as a non-lethal if it's not able to be adjusted.

That is true. There was a thread on pbn saying its not adjustable down to paintball levels and that moding it was effectively unsafe.

It is adjustable down to field speeds without modding, however it was rather unhappy for me when i was testing it. But the deals on their mags were awesome, and since they are the same mags as the T8's...there were alot of people buying the mags up.

Yup thats the less lethal version. If you want to sell it I am interested. Been wanting a blue SA8.

If my memory is right it does not have some of the pressure relief parts a t8 has thus has the ability to shot hot without warning. Not to mention they are cranky when at 300ffps. Which is on there low end.

I'll let you know when it arrives and if I decide to sell.

That is what we all discovered when the SA8s were being clearanced out a few years ago, and bought up by people using them for paintball.

They are not safe for paintball. The dump valve does not vent, so if it gets flooded with co2, which is very easy since you holster it with the 12gram horizontal, the co2 will go supercritial and pressure will rise dramatically.

Blowforwards like automags, etc, as well as the T8 all have vents specifically for that reason.

If you stand really far back, it will hit the people at a safe velocity.
