I know you said "besides Tiberius" in your post, but I don't think you can talk about mag fed guns without mentioning Tiberius guns.

I'd say go with the Tiberius platforms for better reliability.

tiberius is a good company but the mags are super easy to accidentally set off and you lose all the paint inside of them. trust me, it is not fun to see a mag get emptied on the ground. its not the fact youre losing paint (as in money) but youre losing a filled mag which is time on the field. you dont wanna be filling mags on the field that often. they are also a pain to service and you dont get all the allen wrenches you need to fully service the gun. they are the best shooting mag fed guns, i just wish they redesigned the mags so its not so easy to lose the paint in them.
the tippmann pistols are great. not as rugged or precise (for the person that didnt take high school physics, accurate) as the tiberius pistol but the new 7 round mags are much cheaper and in my opinion, easier to handle.
your best bet would buy a project salvo, an a5, or phenom and get a mag fed kit for it. if you get a project salvo, it already comes with shroud and a stock (has 98 internals). the phenom would cost you $430 minimum and wouldnt come with a stock or shroud (unless you paid more) but would be the best shooting mag fed gun on the market. i would just buy a project salvo and go to rockstartactical.com and get the tacamo mag fed conversion kit for it

Now, RAP4's been good for customer service, I've got to give them credit, and being a techie-tinkerer, I don't mind the "hand-crafting" too much. But for the average user, you might just want to hold off on the mag kit for a bit.
I know a few guys with Gen 5 and Gen6 RAP4 T64-based markers. It's like with the Tacamo kits; some are just tickety-boo out of the box, some are headache factories working 3 shifts.
I know quite a few guys with Milsigs, and most of them have had to gut the markers and put in A5 internals. Again, I think the Asian manufacturing problems RAP4 had are there too. Nice stuff for sure, and I'm always happy to see a Canadian company making stuff I can buy without having to deal with Customs, but still issues.
Tiberius seems to have the best mag solution, though not without it's own challenges. Heavy, expensive, requires more maintenance because of the o-rings, mostly only 8-round (except for the T4 mags, but still).
The new TiPX mags are nice, certainly better than the original ones, but had to sacrifice capacity for reliability (no more jams, but only 7 shots).

That would be, I think, your best bet for a non-FSR full size mil-sim set up... it is going to run you a little-to-a lot over $300, though (depending on gun), unless you can get it used.
If you simply want to run pistol, though, the TiPX is pretty great and significantly cheaper (until you factor in soft goods for carting around mags).

The Tiberious will take some getting used to only because u only get 8 shots befor u have to reload but they r stupid accurate and lots u can do with it...
all r great ways to go manag fed is so much fun especially when u have hopper fed guns shooting at u and u have to change mags lol
Hope that helps

And the new milsig m17 is also coming out with true mechanical full auto
The rap 4 t68 I have heard have a lot of problems from what I've been told everyone I know that has owned one has sold it
I disagree everyone I know with a milsig buys rap4 mags they r more expensive but seem to work better
