Piranha G3 BL VL
16" CP Barrel
20oz co2 tank
Warped Sportz Drop Forward
if u have the money use HPA i know ud rather buy a new marker instead of HPA but air makes a world of a difference
rugged / durable
Drop off in cold weather
Ball breaks cause large problems
I got this marker as a Christmas present way back when it first came out and i was amazed at how well it worked it almost always shoots straight and is always very quiet.
i also purchased a venturi bolt for it the first time i played with it and the accuracy increased a lot.
Awesome gun for beginners or small budgets it a very nice marker for woods play.
10 out of 10

Spyders, Rebels, electronic Piranhas, and basically all other spyder clones.
Piranha g3 BL VF
12" CMI barrel
PMI Expansion Chamber
Pure energy flame drop forward
new barrel definitely
expansion chamber helps but not needed
probably a drop it is a little back heavy
Light, doesn't chop balls, highly upgradable, nice stock trigger pull, and accurate.
stock barrel could be better. It is very loud, also bright blue isn't camoflauge.
I have had this gun since i started playing paintball. This gun is very cheap ( i got mine around 80 ) , and requires little maintenence beyond a oiling. This is also very durable i have sat on, dropped, accidently rammed it into a tree, and it fell of a 4-wheeler, and still works like its new. This gun is also very upgradable all though all you really need is a new barrel there is so much more you can do. After a new barrel is put on this gun its accuracy skyrockets and it rarely ever chops paint. If you really have the time and effort you can upgrade this to a tournament level marker.
Now i could go and on and tell you about all the good things about this marker but then i'd never get to the bad parts. Well there is a few things that plague this otherwise outstanding gun. The main thing is that the stock barrel is below par. Sometimes it seems like balls do complete loop de loops before they hit their mark. If you look at some of the colors such as their blue, and chrome markers they arn't the greatest colors for woodsball. Combine that with its loudness and you can expect a few quick eliminations.
Overall this is a very good gun. Great for new players and veterans alike. But just dont expect it to be perfect.
I would say the best strength of this gun is it's stock performance. Like I mentioned above it's a good stock gun besides the barrel.
I guess it's key weakness would be it's barrel.
This is a very simple marker, nothing really flashy or special about it.. However, you can make it one. If you get some good upgrades this can quickly become a good gun for the in between range of beginner and the next level. Possibly even the next level.
I would buy this product if you're looking for a new gun, but you may want to also look into the Spyder's. This is comparative with a few Spyder's.
Spyder Victor, Tippmann 98 Custom (Very hard to field strip) , Spyder Imagine (meh),
PMI PIranhe Pro EVO, 4500 psi, 72 ci crossfire preset screw in nitrogen, 14 tear drop smart parts barrel, 12 volt revolution
Expansion chamber and a new barrel
Light, Durable, schops rarely, CO2 efficient
Drop off during rapid firing,
THis marker is awesome i played every weekend for 6 months and the only problem i have had yet was it sometimes uncocks but i only uncocks when the isnt a ball in the chamber... but that isnt that bad because it kind of lets me know that i need to shake my hopper instead of me shooting a bunch of air and giving away my position.
Buy it if your a newbie but if you are good buy a Piranha Pro 2004 of a Piranha PRO EVO
Mongoose LCD, with electronic hopper, 16" all American barrel, with Nitro tank.
maybe a drop foward, a foward grip, an electronic trigger, and a longer barrel. Or you can just just upgrade to a better piranha like the Piranha pro or something better.
Fires well at a good speed. Accurate enught to hit a person while playing.
The weaknesses are it double fires quiet a bit, It arks when it shots.
I got this got about 2 weeks ago and it performs well. I took it to a field near me called Jungle Games. It performed well, Every now and then it would double fire and would half to be re-cocked. The thing that bothered me the most was the inaccurate shooting. It sord of has a ark in its shot and makes a ding sound when you shot it. Other then that it is a very good gun.
Good gun for all those new players and overall is a good buy...........
new barrel and if you want to use auto a lot deff. get an elctro hopper
alright stock barrel, fast! , QUIET!!
none that ive encountered yet! new barrel
This gun is good for beginners and is a good gun when you pull it out of the box. One thing you might want to do is bring 2 9v batteries when you go bc if you forget to charge electronic trigger then your screwed. Good gun though i got everything i needed for 210 and its a really good gun... you cant customize as much as 98 custom but hey it still a good gun!!
All in all is a great gun when you put a couple things into it so GET THIS GUN, great price and just it a good gun!
I borrowed this gun from a freind for a war, and i loved it! its a great gun, never broke any balls, good reliablility, decent accuracy, everything you can ask for in a low priced marker.
sadly pmi dosent make them anymore, but you can find them at yard sales low priced!
Overall a great marker, i would reccomend this to anyone lookin for a quality low priced marker!
Includes a double trigger(standard).Got about 2-3 bps.
Very very very inacurate.Chops balls a ton.
i liked this marker alot.i used it when i played walk-on at OA paintball,Bowie.this maker works better with HPA rather than Co2.i tested them both out.i dont know what it is,but with Co2 (indoors) balls curved of at about 25 ft or so.they just flew off.with HPA the results were much much better.i would not buy this marker if you are looking for an accurate,yet capable marker.on this marker you either get speed or accuracy.
This marker is perfet for getting into the sport,but i would not recomend buying this marker if you all ready have one.
For colder climates, or if you like to waste paint, get an expansion chamber.
Longer barell would help.
Inexpensive. Reliable. Easy to strip.
A fore-grip would be a benefit. At first I found it awkward without.
This was my first marker I purchased. And I still use this. I have an R6 for backup just-in-case.
This maker has been excellent to me. And I to it. I take it apart and clean and oil it after every day of play. I look after it and I think for that reason alone, I have not had a single problem with it.
Finally this year, I decided to get an expansion chamber for it. I was sick of shooting liquid CO2 from it as the season would become late fall. Since the upgrade, I have not had any problems with CO2.
Actually, I upgraded our spare Pirahna R6, and my wive's R6 Rocket with expansion chambers, macro lines, and 14" J&J Performance Ceramic barels.
This marker proves accurate, nice light weight (compared to Custom 98 anyhow). You get a great rate of fire by fanning the trigger, and with good paint, chopped balls are hardly a concern.
