Expansion Chamber, Barrel (now)| When i have the Money= Bolt, Elec Trigger Frame, maybe another barrel, beaver tail sight(Looks better wit it) and Ram air chamber, new trigger
Barrel, Expansion Chamber, dats bout it unless you really want to supe it up
Price is pretty decent, Looks pretty good, light/compact, pretty accurate, reliable better then a spyder ive only chopped a ball lik once or twice in my time of use so it has pretty reliable and hassel free ur only gonna have problems if u dont take care of the gun
Hmm probaly the barrel but then all stock barrels need to be changed and maybe the plastic trigger (which makes the gun lighter) but dats about it
I was gonna buy the STS G3 but then i realized that i would need to change alot of the things on the gun so i would basically be wasting my money so i got the cheaper gun its probaly not as good out of the box but upgrade wise i wipe the floor wit my Bl Vf im fearly new but i recommend the gun my friend whos a pro tinks its great so i highly recommend it (i would of given it 9.5)
Pmi BL VF G3 with pmi perfect expansion chamber, a cp fire drop forward a thunderpig 16 inch barrel and a venturi bolt.
I would reccomend getting an expansion chamber a new venturi bolt and a new barrel. A 9 volt rev hopper.
Accuate when not busting balls. I love the expanison chamber i got. makes a great foregrip. Extremely light trigger pull.Looks great. Easy breakdown and easy to clean. If you have velocity probs add the green spring it will give you the highest velocity. Take the pointless sight rail off.
Chops balls like crazy. It might just be the ball size or my crappy hopper. Always have squeegy with you to clean out your barrel or your shots with curve like a mother. The cocking knob will hit your mask and crack it it so be carful.
I would definantly ask my dealer what balls would fit best best. looks great and shoots great with a few upgrade. if you get a good hopper you will eliminate the chance of busting balls. I dont find it nessesary to get a electric trigger frame. (hopper cant keep up). If you want a gun that you can upgrade the crap out of go with this gun. I love it.
<This gun is the easyest to clean
<comes in color black for little visibility
<can put many upgrades
<light trigger pull
<comes with 3 different valocity springs
<easy to find parts
nothing exept the plastic trigger frame
good for beginners and pros. if you want to turn pro its easy to find upgrades for it. Dont buy it because I hate it when people have the same things as me
9 out of 10

Pirahna BL VF G3 (blue), 12v revvy with xboard (blue), SPAA 12", shocktech df (black), that pmi reg, dye stickys (blue), still CO2 (but im movin up to HPA soon) venturi bolt, thats about it
SPAA 12" (smart parts all american barrel for those who dont know), 12v revvy (dont even bother with 9V), dropforward if it feels right for you, new bolt, new grips, Regulator, and a trigger job if you know how to do one.
Doesnt break balls if you dont use crap (BE), shoots straight and fast. great quality for the price and can be upgraded to a great gun (i use it as my main gun)
Its a great product and got a great price to boot. it is stil not the top of the line but preforms great and with a bit of cash can be made a MEAN machine
I use a Pirranha BL VF G3, with an expansion chamber
get an expansion chamber....also take the sight rail off...it's useless and just adds weight.....Maybe buy a remote.
-Never chops balls (if yours does, buy a motorized hopper)
-easy to clean
-dosn't use alot of air, but when disconnecting the tank, it lets out alot of air
nothing really, it's not accurate at long range (50+ yards, but who takes that long of a shot?), loud
It's a great gun for the begginer, but a more experienced player might want to play with a Spyder TL Plus or a Tippmann 98 custom.
Def. a new barrel, expansion. Also by personal preference a drop foward, a gauge (or regulator gauge it depends), and a revolution hopper.
Easy to clean.
Good paint job.
Shoots good for close ranges.
Good for beginners.
NOT a gas hog!
Stock barrel isn't that great. 5/10
Overall, this is a good gun beginners. I shot between 700-800 balls and broke 3 or 4 balls but I was using them sorry Brass Eagle balls. Then I used PMI Super Swirl balls and never had another break. I used a 14oz. tank for about five woods games, shooting between 700-800 balls the whole day.
I've shot a few balls from markers that belong to my friends but I have not used them enough to really make a good comparison to my marker. I used to have a different marker but it's such a p.o.s. that I'm not going to tell ya' what it was...sorry.
PMI Piranha G3 VF BL ...blue in case you care. I put a barrel that is three inches longer and with more ports (aluminum, black). Installed a gas-thru foregrip (aluminum, black). I use a 20oz. CO2 with a remote hose.
get a non-stock barrel!...the other stuff I put on it is just because of personal preference but the stock barrel is definately something that should be removed and replaced with a better barrel.
It is extremely easy to take apart and clean and the construction is simple enough for a nubie to understand the mechanics. It is very easy to find upgrades for it and the color job on it seems to be fairly durable. It is inexpensive. It is excellent for speed ball and close range shots. It is definately not an air-hog. It is light.
It is not very accurate for mid to long range shots...I think it is because the stock barrel is porely made but that is just a guess on my behaf. It seems to have a problem as far as chopping...only happens once every thousand balls or so.
good gun if you're low on cash or just wanting to try the sport but if you can afford it, I would go with something just a little better...I'm getting a different marker some time in the very near future...anyone want to buy my marker?
umm not much and i only used a couple times but the accuracy is pretty good
1.better stock barrel
3.doesnt chope balls only like one out of every 1000
5.easy to clean ive been told you can even do it on the feild
6.well balanced for better accuracy personally i dont want a drop forward
2.buy new o- rings
this i a very reliable gun for begainers and for intermedite players alike but i would buy some new o-rings when you buy it but call kc crusaders for a super good deal of 140$for the package
