TiPX all the way. :D

I'm not saying that cause i'm a fanboy.(in relation to a T8.1) Mags are cheap, using remote line and CO2 is easier, it is smaller, more/better holsters,

I have talked to people who have owned /used bother and almost all of them like the TiPX more.

I've had an sa17, t8.1, and 2 tpxs. Personally, the tpx is the best, the mags are cheap, and running constant air makes it alot better. My only gripe is changing co2s, it is kind of a bitch at times when the cap doesn't like to come off.

If you are running constant air with a remote line, go tpx, if you want fsr and run with 12ies, go with the t8.1

Me and two of my friends bought T8.1's together. We had the opportunity to use TiPX's at my local field and to be honest I like the feel of the T8.1 better. While the TiPX mags are significantly cheaper I, again, found them to be a little less solid then I'd like. And I always ran my pistol with 12ies because as far as I was concerned it was my "stock class" gun. That being said I did sell my pistol to buy a pump to go true stock/open class. And my friend traded his to a fellow here on the forums because, well, he likes trading guns and wanted to do a pump/autococker project with me. But that last friend one still has his and still loves it.

Technically the TiPX is more convenient, but hey they both work great the T8.1 just cost more for mags!

I have shot a T8, a T9, a T8.1, a SA-17 and a TiPX. I love my TiPX (hence why I traded for one), and it kicks ass to play wit hit. Irecently got into mag fed, but I am also a cheap bastard, so I like not having to pay 30-35 for Tib mags. When I get a second TiPX, I am going to get it with a GunHead Mod so I can shoot FS's out of it, and keep one norml.

The Tipx is just the new version of the TPX only difference is that the remote line kit is easier to install and the barrell has traction grooves and the mags on the TIPX have 7 balls not 8

I'll forever go with Tiberius. Yeah, kind of a fanboy. I have 2 T8's, and I love them.
Only reason is, my friend and I were doing a 1v1 Pistol match. We both pop off a couple clips.
Then, he runs out of CO2 and paint at the same time. Same time I ran out of paint. He has to stop, reload the clip and then the CO2.

I dropped one mag, started running, reloaded the mag on the run, then bunkered him.

I will say that the TiPX is a solid pistol. But that one thing sells the Tiberius for me. Granted, if you're only carrying 2 or 3 mags for the pistol, it's null. But I have 13 mags for my two Tib8's.
It REALLY depends on how you want to run it. As a "Primary", the Tib8 might suit you better. But for a side arm with only 2-3 extra clips, the TiPX will be lighter overall, and equally as good.

Depends, there are upsides in both but as far as ergos the T8.1 wins, i don't care for the 86 degree frame on pistols, it seems...wierd. My opinion obviously.

T8.1 has metal magazines, a bolt out back, twist lock barrel, FS out of box, better reg, and C02 is in the mag.

TiPX has plastic mags, bolt in a clamshell, A5 barrel, regular paint only, and has co2 and paint seperate.

For me, the TiPX wins if you are dual wielding them because you can run 6 mags and 2 co2's.

However for a single pistol T8.1 is better because of pointability, I would much rather have the T8.1 (because I do :) )

After owning a T9 I will never own another TA gun. Ever. I had so many issues out of the box. When they finally got it working I pitched it on eBay. A lot of people seem to like the new 8.1 but I'm going TPX for this winter.

1911 is where it's at...


Anyways, between the two (not going to count the SA-17 since it's more or less a mini spyder w/ tube feed), I personally would prefer the TiPX.

I have never owned a T8.1 only the TiPX, but since the CO2 is in the mag on the T8.1 don't you lose a 12g ever time you reload? That seems a major pain since you can get like 30 shots off each 12g

The tpx has several advantages over the 8.1.remote line capability,cheap mags,saves on 12gs if you do use them,and many others.overall the TPX is a mostly better pistol.

You can use the mag 3-4 times before the co2 runs out. So in some ways it's more convenient. You're less likely to be caught with your pants down if your co2 runs out since it generally happens in step with the paint and all you have to do is switch the clip. That being said you can have issues keeping track of how many times you've used a magazine with the same cartridge (I used to mark the cartridge them with a dot from a sharpie after each game).

And to everyone saying the TiPX has remote line capability, so does the T8.1. Darkstar Paintball sells an adapter kit that lets the T8.1 run air out the back like a TiPX.
Edit: They did, apparently they're out of stock. My buddy just got one a couple of weeks ago I'll have to ask where he got it.

Please, 18's are for ghetto hood thugs that can't aim. Automatic pistols are for room clearing at best.
My Springfield XDm however, is the easiest, most natural shooting pistol I know (including a Glock 17, 32 (I believe that's the Sub-Compact 9mm model), and Beretta M92.

That being said, my boss has a S&W .500, and I can put my first shot on target up to 100 yards. And with that gun, that's all I need haha

So you'd have to load up, say, three mags and 3 12g and if you use 2 mags then you have to reload those mags or waste the 12gs.

Basically, yeah, but if you're going to be playing more than a game or two you'd be changing out those cartridges anyway.
The advantage is that when you switch to a new magazine you're also switching to a new, and hopefully fresh gas source.


Also, you might loose a shot or two worth of gas when disconnecting the mag, but it's not much.

It comes down , imo, in how you plan to use the pistol. As a last resort, hold em off, get out of there marker, TPX would do nicely.
If you plan on just rocking a pistol, then the 8.1 might be the better choice.

The XD's frame is based off of the Glock style, and all their internals are almost exactly al ike, save the external safety as compared to the Glock's pressure trigger.


I <3 my Glock 22C (Compensated version), and it's little brothers the 23 and the 27. I want to get a wheel gun for days when I don't want to wear my concealment jacket though, easier to hide. Thinking about a Ruger SP101.
