TPX>Chaser

TPX is good. T8 is good. They both have their drawbacks, but go with the Tpx or the T8 if anything.

If you count "only put 7 balls in the 8 ball magazine" as a solution, then yes.

The TPX only has two advantages over the T8 - Magazine price and you can (viably, one mag, refill mag, reload doesn't count)run it off a remote line.

Yes the remote kit has a check that allows you to continue to use co2 in the marker

yea, but it's through the magazine. This presents a problem because you gotta switch the remote from mag to mag now. not sure how hard/easy that is....

Oh I see, that could be a problem if you try to reload on the fly...

But the T8.1 is First Strike round ready...

I thought they made it so it does not need to go through the mag any more and go through the rear of the pistol.
