Well tuned and totally modifyed basic black CF Autococker with all the best parts I've collected over the past 12 years, another old square front 'Cocker made up of all the leftover parts (c: 1994 vintage Automag with all the goodies from back then and a level 10 kit, Tippmann Factory F/A, PGP, VM 68, Nelspot 007 etc etc ...
Leave this on a highway for a week and it would probably still work.
Grips come loose easily and are small, weighs a ton.
I'm reviewing an older PGP with an aluminum pump handle, the only real difference I've seen between the new and old ones is the pump handle. I don't know why they would switch to plastic since the rest of the gun is rock solid brass. However, the plastic seems strong enough. This is definitely THE stock pistol all others are judged by. Solid and reliable. It's not perfect though ... the weight is a factor if you're going to carry it as a backup, but if you're playing with it the weight seems to give it stability. The grips also come loose once you play with it for a while since they have a single screw in the middle holding the panels on and since you're cocking the gun your hand is constantly putting pressure on the grips. The grips are a bit small too, especially for a huge and heavy gun. Battle grips are a plus here ... with some minor filing Autococker grips will fit BTW (not the .45 frame but the old school frames). You still have to "rock and cock" to load a ball since it doesn't have a spring loaded magazine but that's not a big deal, but the magazine has to be loaded, you can't just jam a tube in there. you can't easily adjust the velocity stock either, and it takes what seems like forever to unscrew the 12 gram loader.
All in all a reliable and acurate pump pistol, but not perfect. However some minor upgrades will certainly help.
