Ok I went to our paintball pro-shop and was thinking about getting a new gun. The T9 and the TM7 are the two guns I am debating on getting now. The TM7 was interesting because of the selector switch and the stock compressing straight into the back of the gun. The T9 interested me because of its ability to be stripped down to a pistol with ease, and the lack of needing a hopper or an expensive air tank. So my question to you players out there is what do you like about either of these guns that I might have missed.
P.S. ROF fire is not a factor I am taking into consideration. I will probably cut back on shooting as much as possible with either marker.

TM& based on the tried and true mini platform. Easy to take care of and all that jazz.

I actually had this same choice a while back.

Both markers have their merits, but I chose the TM7 because it's more versatile. The T9 is primarily a limited paint gun, and it's not really useful for anything else. Limited paint guns are a lot of fun, but they're specific use and I already have a couple of pumps and a T8.

Also, there's an extra cost with the T9 -- magazines. You'll need to buy more than the one that comes with it.

The TM7 is more consistent and allows for better selection of barrels. The TM7 is autococker threaded, while the T9 is its own twist-lock format.

I believe the t9 is hopper capable, and I also believe that the t9 is more consistent because it has a, X valve reg.

The t9 uses a Automag LIKE valve, not an automag valve. And it is not an Xvalve type either as the xvalve cannot use co2 without damage.

If I had to wager a guess either is going to be plenty consistent, with the BT being a little more so.

The T9 has a hopper add on that you can attach to the marker body, but if you dont want to use CO2 cartridges, you have to use a remote coil with the T9. I've also heard that if the hopper is to heavy, it might snap off the T9. Though I can neither confrim or deney that rumor.

i have a t9 and i can vouch for the feedneck thing
my friend snapped his of 2 days after he got it but he used some epoxy to get it back together with 2 part plastic bonder and has had no issues since.
the t9 is a pretty universal usage marker...... what i mean by this: mag feed or hopper feed adn you can switch at the turn of the barrel. co2 or hpa all you need is a remote line addapter for one mag, rifle or pistol or qcb all depends on your style
the tm7 is a bad boy... i am thinking this is my next buy. small compact, quiet, kinda plasticly but durable, and uses cocker threads witch i like.
if you even think you wanna go out and lay some paint (faster than 9bps) your probably going to want to go with the tm7
if you kinda hang back or play sniper/no need to through paint to hold people down than t9 is good for you
it all depends on you and what your ability and place is on the field.

if I had the choice I would get a T9, just because it has so many variations possible with it. You can take the back stock off to cut down the size for CQB situations, turn it into a robbo cop style pistol, a 'sniper' rifle, a side arm, or a regular marker. And I just like the looks of it over that of the TM7, but this is all just my opinion.

I like just about everything about the t9 except the cost of magazines. I've never shot the tm7, but i know the t9 is one of the most accurate markers i've ever shot. I do like the sliding stock and light weight of the tm7 though.
