I come from an early Military background, as a result, I've always been biased towards playing paintball with a very *defined* amount of ammunition. So after playing with rentals for many months, and afterwards trying many different pistols; I've settled on the Zeus G2. It is currently my main marker, and has been for the past year.
This pistol is very accurate given its short barrel length and one handed design. Compared to a full length semi-automatic marker however, you'll want to use the extended barrel and steady the G2 with both hands to get a much higher level of accuracy.
Some people have claimed the G2 is horrifically inaccurate, but to be truthful; if YOU were to fire a Tippman A-5 with only a 1 inch snub barrel using only one hand,... you'll change your mind and agree with me very quickly that the Zeus G2 is indeed extremely accurate!
The pistol itself is very easy to clean and maintain, the shape and size of the pieces that make up the bolt-assembly is such that it's impossible for you to insert it back in the wrong way. The construction and manufacture of the body is solid. Be sure to download the full length user manual from Armotech.us or Armotech.net, the little one page sheet that comes with the marker is terrible.
I originally purchased mine from an online retailer for $115.99USD. Personally, I think that's a good price, I've seen PT Extremes and Core ZX's sell for $150+ USD on other websites. And I've seen various all semi-automatic markers that sell for thousands of dollars.
But the quality and feel of the other pistols just doesn't even come close to the Zeus G2. Some pistols, like the PT Extreme, have little gadgets like a "quick changer" for the 12 gram cartridges. But if you read the reviews, some people say it's a miracle invention, and just as many will say it's a piece of crap. Now the Zeus series of pistols is, to my knowledge, the first and only series to have a full line of addons and upgrade kits available to it. That alone should give you an excellent impression as to the quality and reputation of the marker.
Be aware that the G1+ and G2+ will be realeased by Armotech soon when you consider your purchases.
For a sidearm or secondary marker, a stock Zeus G1 is perfectly good. But if you intend to use a pistol as your main marker, you'll be glad you paid the extra $20 for the G2.
