I use a Tippman A-5 with a Flatline Barrell, Egrip, 4 position collapsable carbine stock, and a 20oz Co2.
I have a PGP2 for back-up
Don't really need any, except you might want to polish the barrell.
INCREDIBLE Co2 efficiency
Quick Co2 change
Can break balls in unpolished barrell
This is a truly awesome pistol. It's Accurate, has a very nice barrell size for a pistol. It has a very easy pump and trigger pull. The Co2 change is much faster than the original PGP (Only 3 full turns), and you get much more shots per 12g (I can get about 50-55 without losing velocity, 60-65 total indoors with the power at it's max). It says it can hold 10 rounds, but you can actually fit 12-13. The fiber-optice sights are also a very nice built-in freebie. The gun IS heavy, but this works to it's advantage, helping you stabalize it while aiming at full arm's length or while running. The grip is also very well designed and comfortable. Only notable flaws are the small trigger shoe, and that fact that you might not pull the pump back all the way because the pump stops/resists motion at 3 places (uncocked, half-cocked, fully cocked). So basically, it's near perfect right out of the box.
Some people may say because its a stock-class pistol, it's for back-up emergencies ONLY. I say that's a load of ****. For one day, a whole good 5-6 hours of playing, I used only my PGP2. In one game, there were 4 kids behind one bunker. Two had Spyders, One had an Autococker, and I didn't see the other's... I surrendered all four with just the PGP2. That's a true story. The gun's size makes it PERFECT for running jumping dodging sliding, or ANYHTING else you need to do.
If you need a cheap, efficient, reliable pistol; go out and buy one of these. It's got all the good things you loved in the PGP, plus a few new ones.

Dispute: "... I can get about 50-55 without losing velocity, 60-65 total indoors with the power at it's max ..."
This is imho very misleading information, especially for newbies. Number of shoots depends on velocity setting, but with common setting (240-265 fps), from stock PGP2 you can comonly get only max. ~25 shoots before dropout per one powerlet. You can get 55 shoots without losing velocity, but only when will be the initial velocity very, very low, around 220 fps.
Stock PGP2 is surely more efficient than old PGP (because he has longer barrel and valve with only one opening on diameter whitch has not so much space for unintendet expansion of gas with every shoot), but even far away tunned PGPs (with new valve body, shawed cup seal stem, entlarget hole between of valve and chamber, lightened hammer, tunned spring combo) have big problems get more than 30 common powerful shoots without losing velocity.
Author of this review imho has not performed real chrono tests or he has not declared his findings right.
...I like PGP and PGP2, but I have likewise chrono and I know that they are simply not so efficient how he says.
