Tips for sa-8 owners
ok so if you havn't already seen this thread LOOK AT IT ALREADY.
Tiberus Pistol $99 - mcarterbrown.com
this is the x7og thread.
new $99 tac-8
or the a5og thread
new $99 tac-8
this is a sa-8
the sa-8 is 99% the same as a t8 but it has some differences. it's velocity is turned way up, the barrel is longer, it comes in either blue or orange, and the velocity screw is supper sensitive.
DIALING IN YOUR SA-8
this is the most critical step. your sa-8 will be shooting at 350+ fps. out of the box.
what you will NEED.
a CRONOGRAPH this is VERY IMPORTANT. If you don't own one either try to borrow one(like I did) or go to your local field and use theirs. this is to be safe and get your efficiency up to 2.5 mags (20 shots)per 12gram.
a 3/16 allen wrench
some paintballs. caution as soon as you fire paintballs you have voided your warrenty. therefore I reccomend that before you use paintballs you load up both mags with the blue practice rounds that came with your sa-8.these will not void your warrenty so if there is a problem with your gun you can still send it back. after the first 2 mags fell free to void the warrenty if you want to.
12grams (btw all of the 12grams in the 2nd picture were used cronoing the gun)
prehaps the t8 manual. https://www.tiberiusarms.com/document...ual_May_08.pdf
to addjust the velocity turn clockwise to increase the velocity or counterclockwise(left) to decrease the velocity.
the back of the gun
if you find that your gun isn't fireing either you are out of co2 or the velocity screw is too loose. to correct this pop the mag out turn up the velocity and then reinsert the mag. don't try to turn it up while the mag is still in the gun(if your gun isn't fireing that is. if it is fireing then feel free to turn it up while the mag is still in the gun just make sure to keep the gun pointed in a safe direction at all times.)
crono your gun down to 270fps.
now you are dealing with co2 here so when you finish the first 8 rounds DON'T immediatly load the same mag up and shoot is again. the co2 will be very cold. cold co2 means low velocity,low pressure,and fewer shots. so use the other mag instead and/or use the palm of your hand to warm up the cold 12gram.
also co2 tends to spike in velocity so make sure that is is low enouf to stay under 300fps.
I havn't tried this yet but I will soon.
over all I am pleased with my sa-8 I havn't gotten to use it in a game yet but I will soon.
now if you own a sa-8 (or a tac 8) and have a tip for others please POST IT UP.
Those practice rounds look like they were made by Perfect Circle Paintball. I wonder what those are filled with.
What's up with the back of the Dump chamber? It's not like the T8, T8.1, or the T9. Is there a pressure relief screw there (between the two button headed screws)?
Tuning procedures for T8s involve:
I found this uv_halo post from Chachi's SA-8 thread helpful:
the sa-8's were designed with out a releife valve so police officers could shoot them at rioters at 350+ fps.
What is that silver thing on the back of the gun?
all I know is that they are different from a regulat t8
The top photo I'm assuming is from an SA-8?
Won't prevent a velocity spike if you manage to get liquid CO2 past the regulator, but should be enough to prevent damage to the gun if some officer left it gassed up in the trunk of his squad car in the middle of July in Arizona.
All of this material is covered in there in detail from people who have bought them and dissected them.
That IS a relief valve, it's just fixed and fixed at a high pressure. It's not compatible with the Tiberius 8/.1/9 valve.
Tiberius Arms will punch you in the face if you call them with tech questions/parts requests about the gun you got for half price.
