Ummm..... Not a whole hell of a lot to compare a PGP to...?
None really, I mean its not like you can do a whole lot to it
-Built like a truck
-True quality was put into making this gun
Hard to use as a side arm
Ok, now lets face it... when I personally walk on a field now adays, I see a bunch of people with guns that resemble pimped out toys. You know, the ones with the espyders with all the chrome that think theyre bad-@$$es... yeah you know the types..
My point is that you dont see guns of this quality very much anymore besides Tippmanns (which i mean, come on... you could beat with a sledge hammer and still compete with it in a tournament.)
The PGP has the power of a pump gun in the size of a pistol.. well yeah... its a pump pistol.. but nonetheless, this thing has B@lls!! No pun intended.
The one thing overall that i can say that I love about this gun is the fact that you could drop it in the mud, throw it in a locker for 6 months, then take it out, give it a quick cleaning, and shoot it. it has the reliability not found in most modern guns. These days, if a gun doesnt break constantly and works like it should, its concidered reliable... well i hate to tell you, but my definition of reliable isnt having something i paid for do what advertisements said it would do... reliability is doing all the things advertisements promise... AFTER the gun has been beaten to hell.
I dont like walking around a field thinking about "omg did i just rub my gun against a tree? it might be busted now!!!"
I guess what Im trying to say is that you wont find a gun like this anymore, and if you get a chance to buy one, which you probably wont, but if you do, I would. I've had my PGP since i was 8 years old.... Im now 21...and this beast is still shooting as good, straigt as it did on my 8th birthday, AND I havent lost any gas efficiency. THATS quality.
Though I kinda rambled this is my point:
If you can get your hands on a PGP for a reasonable price, BUY IT! You will not be sorry you did. This gun cost $120 back in 1492 when Columbus drank the ocean blue, and let me tell you, its still worth the money today, EVERY BIT OF IT!
If youre looking for a side arm, get a sling for your primary gun, and a holster for the PGP, its worth it.
Not to mention, that it looks and sounds pretty Bad@$$!
Im feel this gun deserves a perfect 10 becaus I cant think of another gun besides a TIppmann, that you could own for 13 years, have about 60, 000 rounds shot from it, and still perform just as it did the day it came out of the box. this truly is an amazing gun.
