Review: Okay. First of all, let's get something straight here. I am not comparing this to a high-end electric, like an Ion or an Angel or a freaking Timmy or whatever. To do so is simply stupid. This is a mechanical gun, made for those who are beginners are just want to play non-competitive woodsball.

For about ten months, I used this with your standard 200-round Extreme Rage gravity-feeding piece-of-crap hopper . No chops. I eventually made the hopper into a homemade revvie, but before then I must have put at least 15 cases (30,000 rounds) through this thing, shooting mostly 8-12 BPS, according to a field chrono. It has never chopped. This gun is also pretty darn accurate. Despite what sure looks like a crappy stock barrel, it's really not bad at all. If you have money for a barrel upgrade, by all means get one, but it does just fine without one. The gun is also easy to field strip. Mine has never broken in a game, but the easy-strip pin is pretty handy. It takes about 30 seconds to completely clean and lube this marker.

The only negative: The Piranha BL VF G3 lacks a forward grip, which makes it a bit awkward to hold and aim at first. I got used to it, and so will most people, i think.
Conclusion: This is a great entry-level gun. Fairly fast, fairly accurate, won't chop. It was my first gun, I loved it then, and even though, after 2 years, I now own an Ion, I still like this one better.
