I use a Spyder Shutter with an Elco Boo-Ya electronic grip with a Custom Products 16 in. barrel and a Ricoche 2K electronic hopper. As side-arms I use a Sheridan PGP and a PT Xtreme
upgrades? who needs them?
The PGP is a highly accurate gun, not what some would expect from a pistol, having such a small barrel. It is smaller than most side arms, and because of that fits in more places, and is easier to carry. I carry mine in a guppy slot on my utility belt. It looks cool, more like a real pistol than some of the other more bulky side arms. because it is a pump, the CO2 lasts longer than in does in a semi-auto marker using 12 grams. I get between 35 and 40 shots for each 12 gram.
not much, unlike some pistols it doesn't have a spring in the loader to push the paint into the barrel. Sometimes this is a problem, and there ends up being no paint in the barrel when I shoot, but usually when I pump I pump at an angle, and the paint falls right into place. The CO2 is a...well it's hard to replace. you need a screw driver to unscrew it, and screw it in far enough so that the gas won't leek. but you usually don't need to change it in the middle of a game, so that too is not much of a problem.
This is a terrific gun. It's the perfect side-arm, accurate, and dependable. it has it's slight problems, but what doesn't. this was my first side-arm, and I still use it, even though I have a PT Xtreme, I carry them both just in case I need them. If you want a good pistol, and don't mind the pump, I sugest you get this gun.

first, if the pgp has used up all of the co2, then the cap comes out pretty easily. and about the "screw it in far enough so that the gas won't leek," a nice, simple, and VERY cheap solution is after you insert a 12 gram and before you screw the cap in, put a penny into the co2 chamber so it looks like this I cap I l penny I I 12-gram I. the extra width of the penny makes the piercing mechanism in the gun work much better.
