2K4 Pirahna EVO - Easy to clean, fires well with trigger upgrade, heavy
Stock Smarts Part Ion
68/3000 Pure Energy
Very Small profile
Possible Air Effecency Issue
May be too small of finger space under the trigger guard
Wellllllll.... let's just say I was lucky and won mine in a online contest. It arrived last night.
Out of the box I have to say, not a bad looking gun. A very low profile, much like the Shocker (not making any more comparisons from there though).
That "plastic" body that some talk trash about is damn blasted hard and looks like it will be pretty sturdy. Time will tell there. The rest of the gun is a dusted aluminum that is no wear as flimsy as a Spyder. It is way lighter then my Piranha EVO, and even seems more rugged.
The barrel is nothing to talk too much about, just a straight 12" barrel. I am going to test some other barrels on it on Saturday.
Trigger is very light, and out of the box for me needed some adjustments. Was very simple to do that though and I am getting my rate up pretty high. The trigger guard allows for alot of fingerplay. The grip is pretty sticky and I think it works really good, but people with bigger fingers may find it a tight fit under the guard and the in-line.
Some may need a drop down or drop forward but it works for me as is, though I think I will someday upgrade to an on/off.
Sadly I did not see how much air was in my bottle before hooking it up but it did blast through what was on my 68ci/3000 pretty fast, so I am a bit concerned about air efficency. I will know more once I have my bottle filled. I am hoping that this is not the sign of the same issues I have heard that the Shocker has in the reg.
Taking it apart to clean is no where as easy as my EVO, but the instruction book spells everything out really good. It is sweet that there is only one moving part in the body.
The shell comes off easy only during an almost complete dismantle, so there is no fear of it slipping off.
My only other thing I would have to say about issues with this marker is that the one screw holding the trigger frame to the body is not easy to get to and some patience is needed to get the frame off and away from the body.
I will say this gun flies, and is very quiet... well at least compared to my blowback EVO. By the way this marker is a blowforward.
Tomorrow I am going to run some paint through it and Saturday I will be practicing with the marker. Overall though I am pretty impressed, but time will if this gun has real field power.
Hope this helps some and I will update this as I use it.
I think this gun may set a new standard for lower end markers and as many of the reviews have said only time will tell for sure.
dude, i respect the review but couldn't you just wait a couple days until you posted it, im sure if you had the time to put some balls through it and rip on people at the park you would have given it a 10
