Experience:

Products Used:
b/e tigershark, cci phantom (i own the stock and standard versions)
Marker Setup: CCI phatom w/ both breeches, 45 grip and vertical and bottom line air
Recommended
Upgrades:
i dont know if there are any.
Strengths: I Like my pgp, it has gotten me out of some tight situations, it is very accurate, it compares w/ my phantom. It is really compact, and has a smooth pump.
loading balls is easy, and the sights are really good. and of course, extremley rugged.
Weaknesses: well, first of all, the re-desinged loading system could be better, the made it so putting paintballs in the loading tube easy(which it is), but it's getting the balls in the breech is the hard part, i have very low rates of fire w/this, because i have to 1, cock the bolt back, 2, turn the gun a litte sideways so i can see the open breech, 3, tilt the gun back, 4, tilt it a tiny bit forward 5, actually watch a paintball fall into the breech, and finally shoot. This slow, unreliable process has gotten mt tagged in some games.
second, it has very high ball breakage tendancy, i always load up w/9 balls, and about 5 or 6, maybe less sometimes actually make it out.(but those shots are always dead-on accurate).
third, range, you cant shot high velocties w. this gun, shoot mine @ 220, so i get very low range and still high ball breaks. (ive heard these problems can be fixed by polishing the barrel).
fourth, (this is only cosmetic) scratches, mine has four big scratches where the pump arm arm slides. but i don't really care, (wear and tear, right?) it ony bothers me because it lowers the value.
Conclusion: well, it is a good gun somtimes, but i find it unreliable, so i cant always trust it.
i find myself sometimes thankin this gun, and other tims hating it (kind of an enmity going on here >=).
i dont know if i'd reccomend it, maybe if you plan on polishing the barrel ( i think i am going to soon.)
maybe if you're looking for a sidearm (thats why i bougt it).
i gave it a five due to its polarity.
Rating:
5 out of 10
