Strengths: Really, accurate. The new pgp has a few advantages over the old pgp. The biggest thing is that it's got a velocity adjuster, so it can get decent velocities. The co2 change plug has coarse threads, so it makes changing the co2 cartridge quicker. The loading tube slides open instead of having a threaded cap, so it reloads faster, too.
Weaknesses: The original pgp was known for its durability. I expected the same durability out of the pgp2, and was dissappointed. First, the part that slides open to load paintballs broke, so it came all the way off. It also happened to my friends pgp2. That was annoying, but not serious. There really wasn't enough thought put into the design. There's an angled wedge of plastic at the end of the ammo tube, which was put there to help the paintballs roll all the way in when you load them. It also makes the tube impossible to close if you accidentally put 11 paintballs in it. When the loading port thing's open, the paintballs can't feed into the breech either, which would've made it easier to get the extra 11th paintball out. Also, I screwed the co2 plug in "too tight" I guess, which pushed the entire valve back into the gun about a quarter to a half inch, so the gun wouldn't cock back all the way. Thank God fot the guy at my proshop. Sheridan never fixed the "weak first shot" bug either.
Conclusion: I was pretty dissappointed overall. I'd recommend this gun over an original pgp, and it is better, just not by far. It performs better, but is surprisingly fragile. (not really fragile, just more fragile) Mine has a lifetime warranty from the proshop I got it at, and I'm sure that I'd be much less happy if I had to pay to get it fixed every time it broke. I know how to take care of a paintball gun, too. It does have a couple fun features, like the ability to pump it 5 times and load 5 paintballs into the barrel, then fire it. That's fun.
