Tiberius T9 elite with gxg 50 hopper
The air effecincy on this marker is great on a warm day I could get up to 32 useful shots per 12 gram co2 shooting at 260 fps. The accuracy on this marker was great with the stock barrel. Shooting from about 70 feet away I could get 8/10 of my shots to hit a 2x2 target. But I had some marker issues, with the mags I was chopping 1 out of 8 paintballs. I tried the mags in my T8 and they worked flawlessly. But with the hopper the marker shoot very well only chopping 1 in 150. The mag price is pretty expensive compared to the tpx. The tpx mags are $15 dollors each and the tiberius mags were $40-$50 dollars each.
I like this marker but I recomend using a hopper.

Dye Rotor Hopper
Pistol and Rifle
Bought my T9 second hand, it had only been used a couple of times according to original owner and don't disbelief him due to the excellent condition. First day I used it, noticed a few breaks and had to clean the barrel once or twice. Using a gravity fed hopper, it worked fairly well but did have to rattle the hopper once in a while as the feed neck angle doesn't lend itself well to gravity feed, tried out a Halo TOO hopper and an extreme rage with similar problems.
Tested the T9 with various different paint, some it chops every other balls others you can go through 3000 without a single break, using the magazine it doesn't seem to break anywhere near as many. Bought a Dye Rotor and improves the feed problems no end, still have some problems with different paints but I can actually use the T9 fairly reliably now and if I use new RPS nightmare can almost guarantee it'll shoot first time to the 3000th flawlessly. Also replaced the sear in the trigger mechanism as was getting double fires on the odd occasion. As I'm based in the UK forget getting any help whatsoever from Tiberius, there are no official dealer that i've found, emailed them twice maybe three times with queries now and got nothing! Have found one of the techs at regular site has a good stock of spares and is pretty good at helping out when I have a problem.
Incidently a friend has a T9.1 and suffered similar breaking issues and some reliability problems too. And forgot using the manual for anything but reference doesn't give you much help, the tiberius forum isn't bad there are loads of posts about problems and solutions, the youtube vids people have put up are useful. Some of the official reviews by media don't appear to mention anything about breaking paint and an issues with feeding, which is very annoying.
WHEN it works it is freaking awesome, in nine months use only had two days play when it has work flawlessly, since the buying the Rotor only had a few breaks which can spoil your game.
All in all out of the box, it's a little disappointing, once all the little tweeks and upgrades it is devastating, out ranges virtually every marker on the field, don't use CO2 much so mine has mostly run out HPA via remote. If you have the patience to persist with this marker and you get the right paint it is brilliant, if you want something to shoot perfectly everytime from day one this may not be for you.

So my review: On the newer T9.1 elite FS (First Strike ready)
The marker is a sight to see. The pictures don't make it justice. It shoots great and is very intimidating. I ran about 100 rounds trough it today at work. My co-workers just couldn't keep their hands off it. Very accurate but could use a 1 piece barrel for the full sniper mode. Come first strike ready. To be honest I'm not paying for FS rounds not worth it. I'll stick to regular paintballs. Comes with a Laser, flashlight, forward grip, collapsable stock, pistol sights, mock silencer, Bi-pod and a remote line kit. Everything came in a hard case that is pretty strong and good foam interior with modular pieces. So you can create a good cut out for your equipment. The scope is great for paintball. I wouldn't go hunting with the thing but it works well. I like the fact that you can shoot from a hoper and the clip with a simple turn of the barrel. So if you have a longbow system you run 20 or so balls from the LB system and 8 balls from the clip or have multiple clips, users choice. I put your standard hoper on today and shot as fast as I could. No chops out of a full hopper. Breaks down in multiple types of settings. From assault rifle, CQB marker or sniper setup to your basic pistol. Bi-pod is kinda loose on the rail system. I'm trying to figure out how to make it tighter. One thing I did not like was the manual. It SUCKS!!!! I took the T9 apart in under 10 minutes. But putting it back together is a PITA. I had to go to youtube and watch every single video on how to put it back together. It ended up being the trigger spring that kept getting in the way and didn't let the clip slide in correctly. In no way does the manual talk or show that spring. But apart from that the thing is beast. Will be talking it out on Sat for a good field test. Got the longbow feed system so no hopper for me.
So I do recommend getting the T9.1 Elite for those who enjoy accuracy and scenario games. Looks good and works great. But it will be a learning curve for those who never played with a mechanical marker and are used to shooting paint ropes. Stealth is key and trowing paint defeats the purpose of thus marker.
I got this system because I'm getting back into scenario games and got tired of fast pace games. It will be tough going back to mechanical markers but cost less in paint lol.
I'll keep you posted once I get a few real life games under my belt with this marker.
Tiberius T9 Elite ST
Removed: 3x Scope, Bipod, flashlight.
Using/added: Stock, remote adapter, remote line, 20oz CO2 or 48ci 3000psi HPA, 3 point sling, RedHead 30mm Red Dot Sight, GXG Mesh Vest, 3 point sling, Tacamo ARC 200 round hopper, Custom Barrel Tip
1x Red Dot Sight (no magnification), Sling for use as a rifle, 10 round tubes for easier mag reloading, more magazines.
Versatile, consistent, appearance, ease of use, easy maintenance. First Strike Compatible with kit.
Small allen keys are easily damaged by the screws. Few Mods. No trigger mods.
Cacophony's review pretty much sums it all in an excellent fashion, but I agree with FANCHER that it may be a better option to go with the basic model and buy the riser and red dot separately as well as any add-ons you may want.
I'd like to add, though, that I've found the tactical stock to be uncomfortable to use with the magnified scope even with the tri-rail riser, though using a low-profile mask helps tremendously. The longbow stock may be able to help with that as well, since it's got a curve that makes it lower. The marker is somewhat heavy, but by no means something that will wear you out from carrying it. If you're worried about that though, you can put a sling on it. I'm using a 3 point sling that's great in keeping weight off of your arms while you're not aiming, but it makes it awkward to shoot from my left side since I'm righ-handed.
The TACAMO ARC 200 round hopper has worked wonderfully so far, with no balls being chopped.
Great MilSim marker overall, have only tried it in speedball so far, so it's been somewhat awkward there in rifle mode, but great in pistol mode. Woodsball games coming up in a couple of weeks, so I'll update then.
The magnified scope with red/green illuminated reticle is very nice, but overkill with a paintball's accuracy, unless you're shooting the First Strike Rounds (conversion kit sold separately) and makes it somewhat harder and slower to acquire targets.
Excellent product quality so far, very enjoyable to own. Have played a few games with it and had no troubles that were caused by the marker itself, just some issues with my remote line which I'd set up incorrectly. Adding/removing its mods is easy, maintenance can be done very quickly with practice.

- Electronic hopper, up to 12 bps or Q loader.
- Muy Precisa.
- Gran alcanze.
- Aspecto agresivo.
- Sonido alto.
- Bajo consumo de CO2.
- Dificil limpieza.
- Solo semiautomatica
Apenas tuve en mis manos esta marcadora quede realmente impresionado, su aspecto es muy agresivo e imponente, quede encantado con la calidad de los ascesorios que vienen incluidos y el hecho de pensar que no se necesita practicamente nada mas para tener una marcadora completa para jugar woodsball.
Una vez comence a probar seguí convenciendome de la gran compra que realizé, es muy precisa y a eso se le suma que su alcance tambien es bastante largo.
En juego me pude dar cuenta a fondo de las fortalezas y debilidades, primero que todo es una marcadora que con su precision y alcanze en buenas manos puede hacer estragos devastadores en las lineas enemigas, su consumo de co2 es demasiado amigable (antes cargaba semanalmente mi tanque de 20Oz , ahora lo hago cada dos o tres semanas).
Como debilidades pude notar que definitivamente hay que tener cuidado que paintballs se deben usar, mala calidad de estas va a dejarte prostado limpiandola durante un juego, y debido a que toca desarmar buena parte de ella para dejar la marcadora completamente limpia tardaras bastante tiempo e incomodidad en el campo de juego.
El mantenimiento es bastante complejo, a diferencia del mantenimiento de una X7 se debe usar determinada cantidad muy precisa (gotas) en ciertas partes partes muy bien detalladas en el manual (no en todos los mecanismos moviles), el exceso de lubricante afectara y causara fugas muy molestas y perjudiciales en el mecanismo, ademas se debe tener cuidado con no desarmarla completamente, hay piezas que solo pueden ser ensambladas por el fabricante.
Opino que es una de las mejores compras que se pueden hacer para woodsball, pero no la recomiendo para amateurs, definitivamente no jugar si no se tienen paintballs de alta calidad, cuidar tener todas las partes limpias para asi evitar ruptura de bolas; su precision y alcanze es sensacional creo que no hay marcadora que la supere.

Tiberius Tac9 (usually just the pistol) / pistol holster, Tiberius Arms 3 magazine holster, two 10-round tubes, two extra mags
If used as rifle: pure energy coiled remote, NXE Extraktion "Fuel" Air Tank Mount, view loader gravity feed
extra mags, you should have at least two and if your using this as your main marker, like me, then you should have at least three.
remote line adapter and a hopper adapter, if it doesn’t already come with one
hopper, stock, shroud, extended barrel, sling, and vertical grip (all of these upgrades, with the exception of the extra mags and the sling, usually come in a package with the marker).

Extremely low profile
8 round mags
Dove tail stock
This is my favorite marker I have ever used. It's light, maneuverable, and when some guy with some fast marker that shoots 30 bps knows that he/she has been eliminated by some guy with just a pistol it probably makes him feel like a noob again (especially if he's shooting ropes of paint and uses 4 pods and you come in and take him out in a couple of shots). It also saves allot of money on paint. I only use about 30-40 paintballs per game. Of course the trade off is having to buy 12g CO2 cartridges but it still doesn’t amount to the price of a case of paint a day. Also by using the CO2 cartridges you don't have to lug around a heavy and bulky CO2 or HPA tank unless your using a remote line.
There's only one flaw in the design that I know of so far which is the dovetail stock. For those of you don’t know what I mean by that, it means that the stock has a dove tail looking tab that fits into a slot on the back of the marker. If you were to fall on it you would break ether the back of the marker or the stock, most likely the stock (I do not know this from experience for those of you asking)
There's one more thing that you should know if you get this marker or if your borrow it from a friend. DO NOT clean the barrel out (in the small chance of breaking a ball) with a, rubber like, squeegee with the ball detents in (I know these metal detents are not actually called detents their called something else but I forget what their called for those of you who freak out if someone calls something by the wrong name) because if you do the metal detents will flatten out and become useless. If you have to clean out the barrel use ether a barrel swab which is made out of cloth like material, take out the detents before cleaning (make sure you put them in right), or you can use my favorite squeegee the Veiw Loader profold and only put it in up to the middle of the squeegee and pull it out, if you go further it will just end up like the other squeegee. (This one was a personal experience and I had to use a rental the rest of the day. At leas t the rental was a Tippmann)
Overall this is a great marker and I recommend it highly. The only people who I don't recommend it to are players new to the sport. I give it a 9 out of ten because I know there's always going to be a marker out there I like better, I just haven't found it yet.

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.
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)

A little picky on the paint if you dont have an electic hopper.
The first time I used the was at Black Hawk Down at the Oklahoma D-day field. It worked great until I have my first break. Since it was the first time I had to clean it, it took abou ten minutes, But after that it woked fine.
The next time I used it at any big event was Oklahoma d-day 2008. The weather for Monday, Tuesday, and Friday was rain, but it seemed to stop just before the game began. I used my T-9 for all those games and didnt have any problems with the mud. And since no moving parts are expose to the outside, I was able to crawl right throught the mud and be fine.
On the big game Saturday, i had 8 pods and a 68/4500 tank, i was able to shoot all 8 pods and my hopper with still a little air left.
I would recommend this product to any milslim players that what an awesome gun.
good hopper like a q loader and extra clips or a remote coil
-most accurate gun I have ever seen or used
-very good on co2
Can't shoot to fast i think its 8 balls per second
overall a really good gun. It comes with allot of accesories and it is really accurate. Really Accurate I took the gun out and shot through a hole a cm bigger than the paintball and it only took me 2 shots. its only got about a three inch spread from 40 feet away.
If you really want an accurate gun this is the way to go.

Ok, I got this marker back in June, so I've had plenty of time to familerize my self with this piece of work.
Out of the box this gun looks amazing, when you start upgrading it looks even better. It has a certain heft to it that makes it feel as though your holding an extremely well made and reliable gun, instead of a little peashooter.
The first few times that I used it, there were some troubles. I guess you could call it Murphy's Law or just pure accident. But about three months into my ownership of the T-9, something strange happened. As I loaded a magizine into the grip, an o-ring inside of the bolt assembly came out and fouled the bolt up. This caused the entire magazine to be emptied within half a second. To fix the problem all I had to do is take a Crayon and push that thing back into to tube from which it came.
It is also very picky about paint, Combat .68 is by no-means the right paint to use, it will chop alot. The best paint I have used so far is Stinger.
Above I mentioned that the stock is mounted using dove tails, this is the reason why it is a weakness, by using a dove tail the stock is being subjected to an extreme amount of force. In my case this force was enough to cause a fracture along the length of the dove tail. There are two options to deal with this problem: one is to call Tiberius and order in a new stock; the other option is to fix it your self. The later is what I did, the following instructions might be helpful to some of you out there. First use some epoxy to fill in the first hollowed out cell on either side of the stock, let it dry for a day. Then drill a counter sync hole below the locking hole at an angle towards the top of the crack. Fill the crack and hole with epoxy then put a screw in and clamp it shut. Leave it for a day and it should work fine.
Now the good stuff:
This gun is very gas efficient, I went through an entire scenario and an extra few walk-on games with one 20oz tank of CO2.
It is also extremely customizable with enough items on the internet to make your T-9 unique.
With my hybrid marksman, support, and CQB role, the 17" barrel and over-all compact size. It really is the marker for me.
Alltogether I think that this marker is the best bang for your buck. It is exceptionally well built (except for the stock) and very accurate when your using good paint. Also for all those gun horders out there it is a good conversation peice, although I made this point I don't support anybody to get this marker just for looks, base it upon your playing style.
