Review: First Impression
Beautiful looking gun. I gas it up and put paint in it and after tuning it, i discover that it's the most accurate marker I have ever seen. I play a game of paintball with it and it gives me no trouble, the accuracy makes me feel like a god among men.

Unfortunately that first game is the only one it ever worked well in. First thing it does is refuse to shoot, even when gassed up and loaded with paint. I take the gun apart and recock the bolt manually (pushing it forward as the user's manual instructs) before putting it back together. It works okay for a day. The next day I go to use it and the trigger won't reset. I take it apart again and grease it good. Problem fixed.
These problems continue to arise and become more frequent until there are days when I cannot paintball at all. Other problems arise and eventually it refuses to operate all together. I email Tiberius Arms, no response. I call Tiberius Arms, can't get through on either numbers. I try to register on their forum, it says my email address is banned. I email the moderator team of the forum on this, no response.
Conclusion: All in all, this is a good decoration and one-game wonder, maybe i got a lemon but TA won't respond to me so I will just rate it as if it was representative of all T9s.

I give it a two because I prefer to be able to use my paintball marker. (I think i am being quite generous)

Good review man.

I've heard that about a few T8/9's, so you're not alone.

Did you have any problems with air venting through the barrel? Mine did that the first day. I thought it would come ready to play outta-the-box but it did not perform well. It didn't even shoot straight, my patterns were all over the place!
Also have you tried playing with the magazines? I can hear venting inside the handle when I load it. Sounds like a bad seal on the valve.
