Review: i bought my pgp off e-bay a couple of years ago. the guy who sold it to me said it was made in 96. i belive him. this thing is older than most paintball companies and it still shoots great. nice and accurate. it is also a tank. i have beat the tar out of this thing and it still shoots great. banged it on trees, left it in a puddle, dropped it ten feet onto rocks, dropped it in a lake, threw it about 50 feet, and ran it over with my car. it still works. however, with this durability comes a price. everything is made of steel or brass. that makes this probably the heaviest pistol in paintball. the thing feels like you are carrying a brick. also, the pump stroke is very labored and rigid, not smooth at all. plus, you have to rock and cock, letting the paintballs in the magazine roll down into the breech while you have the pump back. then you just pump forward and aim and shoot. now, don't get me wrong. it is still pretty simple and easy. it is just the fact that the pgp is ancient history in paintball terms, and the old school pgp is not quite as refined as some of the newer pistols, such as the pgp2. also, for all this, it is still the most reliable side-arms in paintball. during scenario games, i wouldn't carry anything else at my hip. it seems that most pgp users and owners have stories about how thier pgp saved them this way or that. i haven't used mine that much, but maybe one day i will have a story to tell.
Conclusion: the most durable and realiable pistol on the market still. the pgp2 is pretty much the same thing but with refinements. i wouldn't go out on a mission without mine, and if you need a sidearm that won't let you down, get a pgp. i give it an 8 due to it is heavy and old, but it still rocks.
Rating:
8 out of 10
