The heart of the E-2 consists of the M92 Electronic Grip Frame that features an LCD circuit, an electronic safety, low battery indicator, game timer, shot counter, and an automatic power-off function. The most unique feature of the M92 ETF is its programmable rate of fire. The E-2ís semi-automatic program can be adjusted by the user to match the feed rate of his or her hopper, regulating the rate of fire from four to twenty balls per second. This feature drastically reduces the number of ball breaks caused by feed failures.
The body of the PI E-2 has the same great features as the Black Dragun but in a classier package. The slab-side body features a finely finished black anodizing that is offset by some of the best looking nickel plating we have ever seen. The whole marker is been milled to give the PI E-2 a rounded, flowing shape -- even the barrel has been upgraded with extra polishing and porting to assure you that the PI E-2 will shoot every bit as good as it looks.
The Paintball Inc. E-2 Black Dragun is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Smart Parts Progressive Barrel
Bottmline adapter and Sub Zero 4 stage Expansion chamber
Bottmline adapter and Sub Zero 4 stage Expansion chamber
electric agitating hopper
doesn't chop balls (with electic hopper)
My Stock Barrel doesn't stay tight but other than that, a great gun
Strengths cont: -- Spyder thread for barrels.
---Consistant Crono numbers
Weakness cont:--field strip pin is very tough to pull out...
This is my first gun, I am very pleased with it right now other than the barrel doesn't seem to want to stay tight. (not a problem New barrel on the way) the stock barrel is good, but a upgrade to the barrel is necessary. the stock bolt leaves much to be desired although i have heard that Spyder Bolts and barrels will screw on nicely. The gun shoots nice and strait as long as a ball doesnt chop in the barrel. once you chop a ball and the ports get full of paint the balls curve everywhere. I found over the use of this gun that a agitating hopper is a must once i did that my chopping of balls went down drastically. the gun crono's very well constantly at 300 and topping out at 304. all in all not a bad gun for under $300 CDN.
Worth the price I paid. Not a bad Starter gun, lots of room for upgrades

nothing need but if u want to upgrade get a
force feed hopper
great rate of fire
light trigger pull
easy to maintain
if your batteries die your messed
this gun is amazing. does everything i want it to do and it was amazingly cheap. The best gun to buy for the money(other than the m3 black dragun). it shoots amazing and consistant even with the stock barrel. the light trigger pull allows for fast rates of fire. only bad this is the trigger is plastic but barly effects its performance. want an electro gun this is your best bet.
buy this gun now!!! absolutly the best gun for the price
1.) '99 Palmer Custom Cocker with Belsales Evolution Hollow point 3-way, Palmer Custom Ram & Rock Reg, Dye Pivot Trigger, Smart Parts Freak Barrel system, and ANS quick pull bolt
2.) PI E2 with ACI 6 stage expansion chamber and Smart Parts All American barrel
Expansion chamber (to replace gas-thru grip) if you play in cold weather and a decent barrel.
Though I hate to admit it, when the going gets rough, I put down my cocker and pick up this bad boy. You can't beat it for accuracy (yes, it's more accurate than ANY cocker I've owned) and rate of fire. Plus, people tend to disagree with basic physics and say an autococker shoots further (despite mass x velocity = distance), but the E2 shoots just as far with more accuracy than the cocker. (If anyone disagrees and cares to test this theory - on video - and is nearby, just shoot me an e-mail and I'll prove it to you.)
The only thing I don't like about the E2 is the plastic trigger. With heavy usage, I can see this thing breaking.
For a high-end performer on a lower budget, you can't beat this marker. On a high budget and want an awesome marker, buy this one and get a freak barrel. Trust me when I tell you that you'll outshoot Cockers, outperform Angels (yes, we all know Angels can shoot faster, but not with the accuracy this bad boy has), and shock everyone in the process.
black dragun basic
sweet spot trigger
This gun shoots very fast. Its like a black dragun. It has a lcd screen which is nice, but doesn't have any different firing modes. The lcd can be set up to 20 ball per second. Its like a black dragun but has no guage and has a lcd.
The trigger is really cheap and the bolt needs to be changed. The barrel also sucks.
In conclusion, this gun is pretty good. It is similar to the basic. Good gun for newbies. It is sold for a cheap price too. I would get one, but i like the black dragun basic better because it looks better and slightly has a better performance.
New barrel and a motorized hopper. And new trigger if you don't like the plastic factory one. Buy some rechargeable batteries, too.
Shoots really fast, so you can lay down lots of cover fire.
Rather light, easy to maneuver with
Pretty reliable, it doesn't break down a lot
Motionless rear cocking, so you don't get smacked in the face with every shot
Accurate to a good distance
Cheap for an electro
Shoots too fast sometimes
Breaks balls if you don't have a motorized hopper
Eats batteries for breakfast
Goes through paint really fast
All in all it's a good marker, if you have the money to buy paint and batteries. Holds up well in games and can take a direct paintball hit. Paintball Inc. boasts an all aluminum body, but it has a plastic trigger. I would recommend this marker to any starting player or someone looking for their first.
Pi-E2 Black Dragun
14" Dye Ultralite Barrel
Check it Products Sweet Spot Trigger
12 volt Revvy
Barrel and Nitro if you have the $$$ like me
Out of the box this gun was good. The accuracy was okay but t when I put my new barrel it was excellent. Looks great. It has a nice body style better than the Pi-E1 body. The velocity adjuster comes in handy. The LCD is tight. It has 4-20 balls a second, Counter, Timer, and Auto-Power Off.
When you put the velocity all the way up the expansion chamber and stock barrel might come loose. Thats about it.
Its a good all around gun. In addition, if you do up grade it, it can accept many spyder and Piranha parts.
Not much for this price. Guns that were twice as exspensive.
Empire Twister barrel 12 oz. laser
New barrel and 12V hopper
This is a sweet gun. It has a cool electric trigger that is very sensitive. Shot a couple of rounds by mistake. It has an easy design. Adaptable with Spyder barrels. In conclusion it kicks the crap out of a lot of guns.
How do u adjust the velocity? I have no idea how. So it is very loud know. The box came with worthless directions. The basic hopper is not very good if your trigger happy. It also goes threw paint like crazy!
All and all this gun can run with the big dogs. If you find a gun thing good and this cheap than your full of yourself because it doesn't exist. Minus worthless directons the gun can run itself with a beating coming for the guy on the other side of the barrel.
Paintball inc e-2 w/ 14 inch j an j ceramic. Dye stickies
Defintely barrel. My j and j shoots great with it
Shoots wicked fast
Lots of upgrades available
Takes spyder upgrades
Takes 9 volt batteries not rechargeable batteries
Macroline is actually easier to work with than regular bottom line
Super short trigger pull
Does chop paint when you use it stock cause it shoots really hard since it comes with tight spring, all you have to do is cut the spring. Obviously the guy below me didnt think of that. Its a tad on the heavy side but thats not a big problem. Comes with plastic trigger but can be replaced with a "Check - it products" trigger that can be found
Quality gun...I went up to skirmish in the poconos recently and this gun held its own with the shockers, impulses, and other high end markers. If ur looking for a gun that comes with impulse qualities without the price this gun is for u.

Too many to list...
1.The bolt jams constantly while shooting fast
2. The barrel breaks paint like crazy and ive tried different paint it breaks no matter what kind.
3. The accuracy is horrid no matter what paint you use
4. So much kick everything on the gun comes loose, so you have to constantly tighten screws between games
Unless you want a fast shooting loud as hell gun, do not buy this gun. Its very crappy performance, and it just plain sucks overall. Save $70 and get a spyder compact, it shoots better then this gun can ever shoot.
EDIT: This gun broke, sent the gun in twice and M3 still hasn't fixed it.
This gun just hasn't worked for me. Ive given M3 lots of time to get their act together. I am going to get a spyder Xtra and be happy with that. When the gun works its sweet! M3 is going down and hopefully the company thats buying them will get their act together.
Buy A Spyder or a tippmann. Save yourself some pain and don't buy it. If you can find one that you can test before you buy then go for it cause its a sweet gun when it works. Most of my friends have spyder and e-spyders and none of them have ever had problems so I just going to get a Xtra and someday get a sprint trigger frame.
