16 August 2010 - 02:07 PM#1 Im not quite sure what you mean when you say "what speed is most effecient for 12g cartridges?" but the lower your velocity the less gas is used and vice versa. Also remember that the temperature has a huge effect on CO2. Another thing is "shoot down" and don't quote me on this but Im pretty sure the faster you shoot the less effeciency you get. Not sure if that applies with your Phantom but all I know is that with my T9 I get better effeciency if I wait 3-5 seconds between each shot than if I double tap or use rapid fire.
#2 I've only found the Crossman 12 grams in Edmonton (that being said I haven't bothered searching for anything else). They aren't the best from what I know as they have very inconsistent fills. If you ever come across Leland 12 grams they are supposedly the best that you can buy.
06 July 2010 - 02:15 PMWh0pper. What is honestly so good about the t4? The t9.1 has just as many if not more perks, right? And it is wayyyy cheaper.
It isn't THAT much different but what I mean was that some people like the more realistic feel, mostly metal construction and being able to deck it out with real steel parts/accessories.
With a short mag (the 10rd or shorter custom ones) it is undoubtably the best looking milsim gun out there with the ability to use FS out of the box.
That being said, it is alot more expensive, doesn't have the ability for air in-stock, and trying to magfeed regular balls is supposed to work pretty badly.
Like everything in paintball, it just comes down to personal preferance and your budget.
I should of read the first post, I completely missed that he already has a FS capable T9 and I posted stuff he probably already knows xD
04 July 2010 - 01:19 PMTiberius Arms T4*:
Doesn't anyone know that you can buy 10rd mags for the T4 for a while now.... Its also quite easy to cut them down from what I've heard. The T4 is arguably the best milsim gun out there and easy to customize with real steel parts + accessories. First Strike ready out of the box. The only problem with the T4s is that they are apparently horrible with regular paint so stick with First Strike. Goes from magfed to hopperfed with the pull of the charging handle. 12 gram or remote line.
Milsig K-Series + M-Series:
For regular paint your best bet is a Milsig. Only regular paint. 18 round magazines. Very customizable. A5/X7 threaded. Can accept quite a few A5/X7 accesories with little to no modding. A5 internals. Reliable (as long as the magwell is set up correctly). Can be hopperfed (but not easily changed between hopperfeed and magfeed IE You cannot do it on the field). On-gun air or remote line.
Tiberius Arms T9/T9.1*:
For First Strike just go with the T9.1 (or a T9 with a conversion kit). A regular T9 can only shoot regular paint without a conversion kit but the new T9.1 is First Strike ready out of the box (and can also shoot regular paint). There are slight differances between the T9 and the T9.1 such as they use different barrel threads. Hopperfed or magfed with the twist of the barrel. 12 gram, remote line, OR 13ci tank in the stock.
For magfed pistols the T8/T8.1* definitely take the cake in my books but there is also the TPX.
Ive heard too many horror stories to count...But I guess if you find one for cheap, A marker is a marker....
*Note: The Tiberius Arms markers are very consistent once the regulator is broken in BUT rapid firing will cause inconsistency. As general rule, for the best consistency take 3 seconds between shots. 2 quick shots usually doesn't affect it that much either.
05 June 2010 - 05:46 PMIs that a question or a statement?
If it's a question then the answer would be yes.
You could attend as a guest . You wouldn't have a permanent position in the platoon or anything but as long as you signed up on the forum, read the game rules, and paid for the event (not membership) then you could attend.
If you have questions, just go and ask on that forum as they can give you answers straight from the organizers. Responses are always very quick too. (They are currently @ holding a 11hour scenario today and so forum activity is pretty slow right now.)
05 June 2010 - 01:02 PMCheck out the AMC/AMG (Alberta Milsim Group/Club) @ albertamilsim.ca
There's plenty of pics and some video too. Check out the Game Pictures section.
You might as well sign up and say hi as a fellow milsim-er.
There is a great group of players there who are from all across the Canadian province of Alberta who share a passion for milsim paintball.
It is the only real paintball military simulation league in the province and they host private milsim scenario across the province.
The group was originally formed by the Bugstompers milsim team (whom you might have heard of) last summer and there is currently over 60+ paid members.
