01 June 2011 - 07:37 AMI am personally a Tiberius guy, but each of the two main pistols (T8 and TPX) has their own place in the pistol world.
This is the advice I always give everyone who is trying to decide between the two pistols:
The Tippmann TPX is a great SIDEARM, not as a primary. It is light, cheap mags, 1 CO2 needed, has the "first pull to puncture" feature. All of these features make it a great pistol to have riding on your leg.
The Tiberius Arms T8(.1) is a great PRIMARY, not so much as a secondary. It is a heavier pistol, and has the tendency to bounce around on your leg, magazines are expensive, you need a CO2 for every magazine, if you have any CO2 left over you lose all the gas left in every magazine. The T8.1 also has the First Strike compatibility, and the T8 can be converted to use the First Strikes, and that is a great advantage to the T8(.1) as a primary.
Yes, I know that you can run a remote like to either pistol and that gets rid of all of the 12 gram troubles, but it's a pistol and you are probably looking for a sidearm so you won't even be thinking about that.
It all comes down to personal preference, they both function in the same basic way (regulated blow-forward) and they both run off of 12 gram CO2 so it all comes down to form factor and the little quirks like First Strikes or "first pull to puncture". Either way...enjoy the pistol
EDIT: Forgot Prices
Very close in price for very similar tech:
New Tiberius T8.1 - 199.95:
New Tippmann TPX - 219.00
HOWEVER! Those are prices for NEW tech...I've said it before, I'll say it now, and I'll say it 20 years down the road...BUY USED! Find a good seller that has some good feedback and BUY USED!!!!!!
