So far I love this marker. Only been out once. Need another full day for review.

please do! i'm very curious about performance. if u can, do some range/accuracy tests. i really want to know if the FS rounds are really all that, and how the gun preforms. trying to decide between a T4, or a T9 with FS. also, what's the price tag.

First half day review, we got there late waiting on a friend. I plan on going next Saturday with hopefully better results due to more time with the T4 and will post here.

This is my first review and I just got back from playing so bear with me.

I will start with what you get when you buy a T4.
T4
4x32-sniper scope
Bi-pod
Stock
Rail guard
2 -14rd magazines, one is CO2 and the other has a remote air adapter
Hopper adapter

I only used the Mag with the remote air adapter this time so I could use a hopper. Next time I will only use the Mag with CO2 and no hopper.


First off, the velocity was not set at all, as in 0 FPS, and it took a while to get adjusted. I thought I had it dialed in at 270-280 FPS, but right off the bat during my first game, I could tell it was not. Went back and chronoed again, it dropped below 200 FPS, Dirty Acronym. Next game and I only shot threw the hopper trying to break her in. Damn accurate using just Stinger paintballs but noticed a drop off towards the end of that game. Back to the chrono, it dropped below 200 FPS again, now it seems all good and I decide to mix it up a bit with First Strike rounds and unfortunately JT Legacy paintballs (it is all I had left, Stingers were from a while ago). At first, no problems but then The JT's broke in my barrel and I did not notice it until switching to first strikes. Man that left a mess. When I removed the barrel there were two JTs and a FS all jammed in the breach. Still cannot figure how that happened.

Now here is where I have a few issues with Tiberius. The manual that comes with the T4 is a whole four pages and not very detailed. All it says for removing the barrel is to push it in and twist counter-clock wise. It failed to mention that you have to pull out the barrel lock pin first. I was able to figure this out quickly but the only mention of the lock pin is in the diagram. Therefore, I get the barrel out and clean it no problems.

Go back out with the soon to be infamous JT rounds and just set off to the side of the field to work out the kinks, yeah I should have done that first off. I was planning on shooting some JTs then switch to First Strikes on the fly. About the 10th shot of JTs and I get another break. Another damn mess. My buds tried to warn me about the JTs but I could not pass on the price. Therefore, I break down and get a box of some Draxxus field paint and they work fine, no more breaks. Day is almost over and finally I can tell the T4 is coming along. The Draxxus were shooting straight and accurate, no breaks for that game. I know at this time I am not going to make the final game so again I set off to the side of the field and just waste my hard-earned money shooting the last two tubes of First Strikes I brought. They seemed accurate but the verdict is still out until next Saturday when I take 6 tubes of FS out to play. I wished I could just go out to the woods and test the FS, but that will not fly here in Germany. Hell the Germans almost banned paintball. Just lucky that the US MWR has a couple of paintball fields where I am stationed.

At this time, I really cannot give a solid review of the First Strike rounds. I wanted to do both the FS and the T4.

This will be a short review. More to come next weekend.

Pros (so far)
Solid construction
Very accurate (using regular paintballs, even the JTs were shooting straight and true when not breaking)
Able to switch from FS (mag) to regular paintballs (hopper) on the fly
Great looking Mil-Sim marker

Cons (so far)
Takes a while to dial in the velocity (might just be a break in issue)
Manual not nearly in depth enough
Does not like cheap paintballs
When you get a break, you have to remove the barrel to get it cleaned
Cost ($899.95)

More to come next Saturday (hopefully)

It would be around $440 for a t9 and the first strike conversion, so even if you got $300 optics you would be decently below the t4 in terms of price. the t4 goes for $899.

I took the Bi-pod off after the first game because the mag was so long and basically acted as a monopod as you put it.

Not a big fan of the scope that comes with the T4, eye relief is terrible. Plan on getting a red dot scope.

You can run also run a hopper on the T9 with the hopper adapter and with just the twist of the barrel you can switch to the Mag. I am not saying the T4 is not worth the money but you can almost get the same thing with a T9 that has the FS conversion kit.

According to the Tiberius forum, yes. Smaller mags are in development.

No offense, but that is one of the ugliest markers I have ever seen.

What is the point of a Bi-pod that is smaller then the mag?

There's no point, it is one of the silliest things I have ever seen.

It doesn't look terrible, the mag is just insanely long. What part of Germany do you live in?
