Review: At first I was really worried about getting the "perfect" pump. I eventually settled on a simple pgp and am completely happy with my purchase. This thing kicks butt. People have complained about the weight, but I think it feels really good in either hand.
+Parts are readily available and are as cheap as they come.
+Everybody and their mother can mod a pgp for you.
-If you are going to be playing against semis (about 99% of rec ballers) you will need an upgraded co2 plug. 14 turns just to undo the darn thing is insanity.
-One other thing to replace would be the grips panels. It will vastly improve the pgp's feel.
-No Instapierce. This means after screwing in a 12 gram your first shot will be weak. Easily fixed, but a minor annoyance considering that practically every shot counts.
Buy a CCI ball gate and use sandpaper or something to make it fit on the feed tube like a speedloader. It will work miracles.
Buy a trigger shoe. They are very comfy and cheap.
I haven't talked about accuracy, because it isn't an issue. The only thing that will really hinder your accuracy is the 6.5" barrel which isn't enough for a paintball to reach full velocity. All this means is your shot grouping will be slightly wider beyond 50 yards.
Get a trigger shoe. They are cheap and feel comfy.
Conclusion: Stock this is a solid product. For 50-65 dollars you cannot afford to pass up one of these babies. They are pure metal! This will turn heads at your local field.
The best pump in this price range. I don't give it a ten, because of the stock co2 plug.
