The Difference Between T8 1 And T9 1

Tiberius Arms is a manufacturer of paintball guns and paintball markers. The company is responsible for several breakthroughs in the sport, most notably the revolutionary, fin-stabilized paintball guns of the “First Strike” series. Another Tiberius advancement was the model T8 and T8.1, the first magazine-fed paintball pistols. These innovations were followed by the model T9.1 paintball sniper rifle. The T9.1 Elite is essentially the T8.1 pistol enhanced with a two-piece extended barrel, a collapsible stock and other removable attachments. The T9.1 can be converted back into the T8.1 in minutes. Basic performance specifications are the same and both models come factory-ready to shoot First Strike paintballs.

Each cartridge powers three magazines of paintballs and velocity is fully adjustable up to a maximum of 280 feet per second. It can also be powered by an optional remote air tank. The upper receiver is constructed of a single piece of milled aluminum. An undermount TAC rail allows mounting of aftermarket accessories like infrared illuminators or laser sights.
