Piranha R6 w/ rocket add on body kit
16" SP Linear barrel
Everything else stock
Not much of a C02 hog
Can fit a good amount of barrel treads
Not the best accuracy
this gun has a cool look to it, and a decent price to it. i first heard about this gun form my friend, who has been into paintball for about two years. at the time i didnt paintball so i knew nothing about it. he said that he tried it and that it was pretty good.
I agree with him, about 75 percent. the gun isnt as good as it looks. but it has a good punch to it wen it comes to speedball. its good for speedball because it pretty balanced, wen u have full co2 and paint. but its not very good at woodsball. wen i first took it out of the box, i shot off a couple of rounds. it worked great. but then during woodsball, i was shot in the end of my barrel, resulting in paint going into the bolt. that opens up alot more problems.
See, the thing is that the bolt is kinda small, so wen break paint, and it gets into the barrel. it will make the o-rings on the bolt swell up. i didnt know this at first until i took it down to a local shop. they said once there is paint in there u have to replace the orings. (but that only cost me about 10 bucks for a bad of like, 10 and oil.)
But 1 thing i did like about this is that u can field strip it nice and quick. u just pull ou t the pin and u can take the bolt and stuff out. so its easy to clean and maintain. i bought this at canadian tire for $100 on sale. (reg. 169.99) it came with mask, co2, sqeegee, barrel plug, and some parts like a low velocity spring, some o-rings, some other parts, adn the rocket add on body kit w/ forward hand grip. i think its a good begginer gun for its money.
The only upgrade i say is a new barrel. i went down to the an indoor course last night and it didnt shoot very strait. it curved about 3 feet after 50 feet. its not enough to really make u mad and hit the guy 6 feet beside him, but enough to barely misss him wen u needed to the most.
OK, ive had my second internal problem. It accualy happend 3 months or so ago, and i forgot to post. anywho, my problem was that when i screwed in my c02, it all came out, all over my gun! there goes that co2 tank, then i tried my 2nd. this time not all came out. enough stayed in for about 500 shots.
I was told by a local pball forum that it could be my cupseal. and to replace it. and that its happend to a few of the same models.
this isnt gunna cost a point, but almost...
In conclusion, i give this gun a good solid 8, because it doesnt have super great accuracy, but it has a good feel to it, and the price is pretty good too. i recomend only a new barrel, and u will be out there owning people left and right.
8 out of 10

yea, wen i wrote this i hadnt taken off the kit yet so im gunna edit this now. but i only said that because it was the first marker ive held for a couple of years so i assumed it was heavy for a paintball gun. then i felt a couple of other guns. so, yea its pretty light without it.
