Review: Wow this is truly an amazing gun. I had been playing paintball off and on (once every few months) for 3 years and i decided it was time to take it to the next step. So i went to my paintball store and asked the guy what i should buy. He showed me the a-5 and then this. A week later after researching it i went and bought it. I love it. I use fully auto all the time with a cheap $5 non electric hopper and i have never broken a ball. Even if you do though it is easy to clean. The semi auto is actually faster than the auto and the 3 round burst is devastating to anyone within range. the downside is it is spider threaded so you cant get the cool tippmann barrels. Some people complain about how there is no cyclone feed but you can just buy that separately.

-edit: ok on further review fully auto is very fast, as fast as you ever would need. i just thought it was slow because of my crappy hopper.

What pcs needs to do is release a line of performance upgrades. like a trigger speed upgrade, better bolt...

-edit july 4 2006: well if you dont know it allready a few days ago pcs released a double trigger on their site ( they also released a commando barrel and even cooler an m-16 barrel for the us-5. The stock barrel is decent but im getting an apex soon. i strongly suggest a new hopper if you ever plan to use full auto. in a few days maybe i will review this gun fully and redo review with mathematical crap like groupings and ball breaks per case of paintballs might even do video review with new camera.
-edit. sept 8 2006: - ok i have created a us-5 owner's group along with a friend.
if you have a us-5, want a us-5, or just want to discuss the us-5 please join.
Conclusion: Amazing gun good for woodsball pretty accurate but get new barrel.

Hey there,

welcome to being a US-5 owner!

i agree that its a great gun for the price and people underestimate it.

the best hopper i found for this gun is a Ricochet AK. at 12bps feed, it's perfect. and the color matches well.

One highly recommended upgrade other than a barrel is to get an Expansion chamber. PMI is known for using "industry standards", so just about any Universal or Standard ASA X-chamber will work, Even the ones for Custom 98's.

oh, and the ACI Sub Zero and CP 14in Classic barrels are amazing with this gun.

I love this gun to. I am trying to see about putting some more upgrades on the gun and will keep everyone informed on anything I find out.

Im really interested in purchasing this marker... But i want to know if the Lapco Bigshot barrel will work well on this marker

WHAT i want is LOTS of accuracy... if this isn't the best barrel can you tell me which would be the best... thx alot
