The Sheridan PGP2 has proven its value in tournament after tournament and has built a rugged reputation at paintball fields across the country. With its solid brass construction, dual fiberoptic sights and heavyweight feel, there's no mystery to the PGP2's popularity. Known to many as the most reliable back-up marker ever issued, this is one tough performer.
The Sheridan PGP2 is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
this marker is great it is accurate, and can withstand anything.
a little heavy
semi bulky compared to a sidekick
This gun is excellent. I don't own the original pgp so i cannot compare but the complaint that sheridan tried to improve on the original but didn't is completely invalid whether they improved it or not the fact remains that this is a great marker. and i am sure that like the previous model with last a long long time. it has a good upgrade path but i see no reason to upgrade it and although you can a sidekick stock or mod for less this pistol is still excellent. this would be a great gun for back up or primary marker it is great for saving you @$$ or honing your skills
This gun is light but not TOO light, it has a very solid feel to it. The barrel is brass and is approximately 10" in length, and along with the original PGP's accuracy, this gun shoots very well. I rarely have breaks and it shoots rather consistent, and will reach a good velocity. Easy to strip down and clean.
The pump is rather smooth and short, pretty comfortable. I like the way the loader works, and despit what people have been saying, I find zero problems in the CO2 quick changer, in fact I like it more than other pumps.
My main complaint is the grip is too small for my hand, it can be uncomfortable at times. If you have smaller hands this probably won't be a problem though.
Since it has a fixed barrel, cleaning breaks takes a little longer than normal, but I find it can shoot through breaks and maintain reasonable accuracy.
This gun is prefect for backup, and even better if you want to give yourself a challeng and use it as a primary gun against semis. There are pretty much no factory upgrades, but they really aren't needed.
This gun was well worth it's price and is comparable to many other pump guns within the price range. If you are looking for a decent sidearm or a gun to play around with, this gun is for you.
I shot the original pgp pump, and it was pretty good. This one is a little more accurate, and alot easier to pump. I can shoot any brand paintballs(from walmart anyway) and it will score a direct hit. Its good for close range, and medium range. Dont even try long rage, its a waste of time. Its very efficent on co2, maybe 15 shots on a 12 gram cartridge. And all of you guys saying that thing u pull back to put the paintballs in breaks. Hasnt broke on me yet, i shoot it everyday. I pull back that thing for the fun of it. View loader paintballs, have seemed to work best on this gun. Sheridan prenium paintballs are better tho. But brass eagle paintballs also *uck this thing up. Brass eagle paintballs are so deformed, that they get stuck in the barrel, and its hard to get out. It has a good velocity adjustment, which comes in handy.
Dont put brass eagle paintballs, or dog food in this gun.It just *ucks it up really bad. A little heavy
This is a handy side arm, incase something goes wrong with ur main gun. Its easy to pump, and accurate. A little on the heavy side tho. Maybe thats just me.
accurate ( when barrel polished )
stock gun: fun to play with ( when it works)
conservative on air
Well, first off you have to polish the barrel, or the gun wont shoot over 210 fps without breaking a ball, now i have polished my barrel, and i shoot it at 280 fps now, works great...until the sear gets totally messed up, the valve gets stuck in the wrong position, the loader on top breaks, and even before the loader broke, the loading system was crap...youd have to rock the gun back and forth a little bit, and keep trying to get the paintball to drop in.
All of the new features would be great, but the build quality is just not there anymore...I wish i wouldve kept my old PGP and not buy this one. This one just doesnt have the old reliability. I was intending on playing with this this weekend, but i think i cant now since when i gassed it up today...well...it didnt work, and then i couldnt fix it later (bad if i cant fix it) . I gave it a 9 or 10 on my last review, but now i give it a 6, because i like it...but i cant depend on it working the next time i play
i just got this gun and ive only shot it twice but from what i can tell so far it is great. pump action is smooth, not too heavy, looks cool, easy too clean, and very accurite. i love the fiber optics. oh...and it doesnt cost a fortune.
the only problem i see is that if you get a double feed it is certain to break...but its a pump so you wont get double feeds if you dont double pump it.(my little brother did...); and i dont like the fact that you kinda have to almost bend the cocking rod to get it out...but it doesnt bother me too bad at all so its ok...other that its a great gun.
great gun. get one if you have the money...its not very expensive so it shouldnt be a problem.
Accuracy - excellent. easy to aim and easy to get a kill
easy to load
easy to change c02
easy to field strip
a little bulky but not enough to worry about
for the first couple of times you use it it breaks a ball every 10 shots or so but after a month its not a problem( anyone else have that problem?)
i HIGHLY reccomend it. small gun with surprising accuracy and distance.
no upgrades needed and i don't think it has any available. its a beautiful pump gun pistol. if ur thinkin about buyin one go for it.

This is a very sad state of what was once a "Name" in paintball. I've used this PGP for two game days and maybe shot 70rds through it and it started to leak down the barrel!
There is nothing worse then having to go to a shop to fix a "new" paintball marker.
Compared to the older PGP's, with it's built-in velocity adjuster, fiber optic sites, and speed-loader, it could of been one of the better lower end stock class markers had it been built with better parts that didn't fail so quickly.
Normally, I would recommend Sheridan Products because I have quite a few of them and I've always found them reliable. This is the exception.
Stay away from this PGP. Crosman really needs to put some effort into it's Sheridan Division before I would recommend this to anyone.
