Electronic tournament-grade grip frame.Semi-auto, 3,6,9 burst
and full-auto modes. Frame runs on one 9-volt rechargeable
battery (included in grip). Includes car and home chargers.
Shoots up to 12 balls per second.
Field strip pin for field stripping, no tools required.
The PMI PMI Pirahna E-force Core Static is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Battery doesn't last too long
Okay, this was my first gun that I ever own. The reason I bought it was electric and it was tournament grade. The first few times I played it worked OK. It wasn't very accurate but it shot fast, so I was happy. After that is when the headache began, first, the battery would die quickly, secondly, the gun would become uncocked frequently, and finally, my trigger wouldn't recoil back to a firing position so it wouldn't fire again after I fired it once. Also this gun was a BIG gas hog. I eventually went out and bought a 98 Custom for a lot cheaper and it works a whole lot better.
Unless you need an electric gun that doesn't work too well, buy this gun. If you want a quality gun, buy something else.

Chops like a mother, inaccurate, unreliable, sucks up batteries, un consistant (even with compressed air)
Ive used my freinds pirahna and i think it sucked really bad. It chops if you go more than like 4 balls per second. I went through two sets of batteries in like 4 hours. Say whatever you want about it but i'd rather have a $50 pump gun from canadian tire. Even with compressed air, it shot very unconsistintly and unacuratly even with a smartparts freak. Seriously, if i had the money on me i would have rather rented.
Dont buy it, its a waste of money, you can get an MR1 for like the same price.
None, just an old mechanical pirahna that i dont even know the name of.
Pmi core static...stock. :(
The E-force frame
Field strip pin
lots of upgrades for it.
Stock bolt chops.
only 12 BPS.
I got this gun with a broken sear,
alot of pirahnas sears wear out really quickly, so i just got a replacement for $10.
The trigger for this gun is OKAY.
you cant really shoot ropes of paint with it, but it works.
I like the field stripping pin, take it apart Wherever you are with out any tools.
the insides are also really easy to put back together and disassemble.
Recomended Upgrades :: (for all e-force pirahnas)
T board (shoot up to 30 bps) $20.00
Superfly bolt (no more chopping) $34.99
Proto 12", 14", or 16" barrel (more accurate shots) $25.95
Delrin Trigger (shoot with an easier, faster trigger pull) $22.99

This is a great gun for the price and highly recommend it for a new player.
Sear wears down quickly
other then that pretty good
I have a piranha EVO which is vary simular to this one, it has the eyes in the chamber, with it on or off it hardly ever brakes any balls, I currently use a co2 setup with my pressure reg set to 300psi, one of the greatest low cost guns ive ever used, i have around 15 - 20,000 rounds through it and you can tell the sear isnt going to last to much longer.
Great gun for the price my buddies own a piranha ive had 3 of them in my lifetime and for the money its a gun that cant be beat!
