PMI Piranha R6 with rocket pack with 14" PMI Razzor barrel
Currently stock with 12oz CO2 tank (UPDATE) Now with 14" 32 Degrees Night Stick (check my review)
Barrel (Flatline maybe)
Maybe the Assault M4 barrel, stock, and Handel
Drop forward or Remote if you are going to make a rifle (M4 or AK-47)
Built in weaver rails
"doesn't feel cheap"
Side feed loader
Not as accurate when the CO2 gets low
Ok I first started off with a PMI R6 with a 14" Razzor Barrel upgrade.... But where I'm a new at this I blew the ASA Slug o ring, from not taking off the CO2 tank right (turn it one full turn and shoot the left over gas out of the marker). So I got a new marker one with one "tube" design, instead like R6 with two. I got the BT4 combat.
So I went to a scenario game, where I'm from there was 5 feet of snow on the ground. I bought a case of PMI paint and I broke some about three and not having a squeegee on the field, quickly learned that the marker still can shoot fairly good (I still have to clean the internals though). I should have used compressed air instead of CO2 the tank was freezing up. I was in a snow bunker and got snow in the barrel and quick shake and it was fine. I found that my tanks were half full and the distance and accuracy dropped. But when I got the tank full it shot straight and hard.
Looks/Feel - 10/10 for a $199.99 Canadian marker it looks cool and more "realistic". It's a little heavy compared to the R6 (UPDATE) With Hopper full, tank and 14"Barrel this marker is well balanced
Durable - 10/10 better that R6, weather don't seem to bother the marker. (UPDATE) knock on wood, with barrel upgrade and PMI paint I never broke paint yet, with 3 month and 1 scenario game usage. I only use HPA when gaming now, it is very efficient and if I'm not trigger happy can last three elimination rounds @ 2500 PSI
Accuracy - 8/10 it's good out of the box, but when the tank gets low the ball drops at a long distance (UPDATE) Again with the 14" Night Stick I save on gas and rarely drop paint
Distance - 8/10 where it hogs the gas the distance drops quickly (UPDATE) That review is for stock setup
It's a great marker, I choose Durability over accuracy but that's nothing a new barrel can't fix. I highly recommend this marker if you are looking for one that will not breakdown on the field. The BT4 Combat is a great woods ball marker because nothing will get in the way, like a long barrel. But if you want more realism, get the BT4 Assault. And get a 12OZ plus size tank and use High Pressure Air in cold weather. (UPDATE) Just get HPA, its more efficient, and quites to gun down ALLOT!!! (UPDATE) GET ONE NOW, if you are starting off, like me, you'll be very satisfied, and I checked it out you can get the RT for the BT-4 (it's the same for the Tippmann A5)
9 out of 10
