Armotech Zeus G2 - the grip and trigger guard on the G2 felt nicer then the PGP
Armotech Zeus G2 (standard stock config)
That's it, that's my main marker, pistolier all the way!
There are no manufacturer standard upgrades for the PGP to the best of my knowledge. But many other reviewers have plenty of recommended upgrades as is.
- Feels very nice to use
- Just about indestructible
- Excellent CO2 efficiency (40 per 12g)
- Extremely slow ROF
- Chrono'ing can be a pain
- Definitely NOT for the beginner
If you have never used a pistol before. You'll immediately notice two things about the PGP.
Number 1 - You can move and shot extremely well with the PGP. Even when compared to a speedball style setup, there's just no way to match the agility you have with a PGP or any other pistol
Number 2 - More specific to the PGP, the pump and shot action is not nearly as bad as you'd think. Because you know every shot counts, you'll naturally learn very fast to aim quickly and repump the gun immediately after a shot.
Maintenance of the pump is extremely simple. Just clean the barrel itself, and maybe take the spring out if you know you won't be playing again for a while. Other then that, you can literally drop this thing on the floor multiple times, and the tough little bugger will still shot clean and straight every time!

I have seen this in the forums multiple times, and it is truly infuriating. Pistols are NOT inherently inaccurate. Anybody with the slightest background knowledge or hands-on experience with real life firearms will tell you that!
If you're going to try to be an arrogant moron in saying that pistols are not accurate. YOU try firing an Angel or an Impulse using only one hand.
When you steady your aim with both hands, and use good marksmanship practices, the PB pistol is every bit as accurate as a semi-marker.
Both pistols and semi-auto markers fire their paintball ammunition at the same 220-250 fps velocity, both therefore have the same range. You can argue about bore-size and paint quality and everything else all you like, but unless you deliberately alter the velocity of your marker, you'll always get the same 100'ish feet range.
Give the PGP a try, if you're any good, you'll love it!!!!
The PGP is a ton of fun to play. When you walk into a field with a PGP, most custom uber upgraded gun players will laugh at you; but the refs know better that you're the dangerous one. Even if you get hit six times and score only one kill, you get plenty of kudos just for playing with a PGP.
Just know well ahead that you WILL get shot a lot if you're up against a bunch of semi's.
If you're lucky enough to have a designated Pistolier's Night at your favourite paintball field, you are sooo in for a great time!
For anyone that loves the rush of beating the odds as the underdog; and for any jaded pro-baller who wants something inexpensive, this is THE gun to get!
