barrel if you want extreme accuacy but not important
hopper if u want to shoot full auto...why would u not
u will need some fresh O-rings for ur bolt in a couple weeks
if u dont like to hold on to a co2 or nitro get a bottom line like i did
ok accuracy out of the box,
it can easily shoot 15-16 bps
Cosumes air quickly...if trigger happy, like me
bolt does get jammed if not lubed
the best gun on the market for 100 bucks. this is so good for speed ball. reccomend this gun for anyone. BUY THIS GUN, YOU WONT BE SORRY WHEN UR BLASTIN THE S**T OUT OF OTHER PEOPLE. Remember to get a good electonic hopper. no gun is better beleive me...i promise!!! I had 6 balls left and i was in a lay-down, the dude was shootin at the bunker and didnt see me peek out from the oppisite side. I took 1 shot....right in the mask from 20 yards away......some people call that awsome accuracy. I would recomend this gun for anyone. Just get a good hopper. Most websites say that this gun shoots at a rate of 12-14 bps........no way i can shoot my gun at least 15 pbs.....on a good day maybe 16-17. The best way to tune ur gun is to get a good barrel, good hopper, and bottom line.
Very good out of box. If u put all the upgrades on that i have got it can be a very deady gun. I think that this is the best gun out there for 100 $$$. This gun is a piranha when u get it stock but when u tune it, its a shark.

This is a great gun, its light, clean, and shoots very fast. It can easily shoot 12+ bps. The functions are very easy to change with the push buttons on the side. The barrel is VERY BAD, it shoots everywhere. So get a new barrelbut besides that, its overall a geat gun.
Great gun buy it. Ony make sure you get a new barrel for it.
Dye Ultralite 12", Tigershark bolt, Evil Detonator, Egg II Z boarded, Turbo Valve, RJ High Flow Valve Pin, Shocktech LPC, CP Lightning Drop, Boss Blade Trigger
BARREL!!! and then move the tank back
Plenty of available upgrades out there
Stock barrel sucks
Ths is the first paintball marker I've ever bought, but fired 2 other types of Piranhas. The fact it is a cheap gun that is EForce really can make this an attractive gun. I was looking for a decnt starter gun that could definitely be upgraded to make into a better gun as my skills improved. This gun gave me that. It's much like the Honda Civic of Piranhas. Shooting it out of the box, it was a bit inaccurate. However, the first upgrade that I was advised to have, and also now recommend, is getting a new barrel. The first time I fired it with my J&J, I felt a big accuracy boost right away. The stock barrel doesn;t allow it to get the ball up to full speed before it leaves the barrel, thus killing your fps. The one beef I have with the gun was the placement of the CO2 or N2 tank. It is right where most guns have a gas thru or a bottom line connection. It was hard to hold the gun and aim accuractely using the CO2 tank as a grip, and things got even worse when I attached an N2 tank to it. It threw the balance of the gun way off.
Overall, this is a good starting gun, and I have enjoyed firing it. I also like it because of the sheer number of upgrades you can do to it to improve its performance. Yes it is only around 12-14 bps, but that stat only matters in Speedball. Recommended upgrades: 1. new barrel, 2. bottomline/gas thru if you want 3. electric hopper

very short trigger pull
VERY good customer service
Rechargeble battery isn't very good but my luck isnt very good either so.....lol
When i first got this gun i was very surprised about how it shoots and how short the trigger pull was (i can go on and on about the good things about this gun). One thing that really stood out to me was how good the customer service was. When i first got the gun, there was a very small piece missing but it was a very important piece....i called them and they replaced it for free even though i lost the piece myself. I highly recommend this gun because it truly shows all of the strengths that i have listed above.
For how much i payed for this gun, i would very highly recommend it....so if you're going to buy this gun, buy it from here because it is the lowest price that you will find it for.....so i will give this gun a 10/10 because it is everything that pro guns can be.

E-force Gti, Blue/Silver Fade.
Black Pmi Razzor Barrel.
Pmi 200 round hoppe black.
20 oz pmi on/off
possibly a bottom line
Super light, cheap
Hard to walk trigger.
My friend just ordered this for 64.99
He says it's "Sleek 'n' Sexy"
I tested it and i liek it alot.
it's very light a hell of a lot lighter than my e-force gti.
i actually like the fact that it dosn't have a bottom line.
i like using the tank as a grip.
the stock barrel works fairly well.
the assult block is nice too,
the shor cocking rod means you won't get hit in the face.
Black E-force Vtl
Core Drop Forward with Gauge
14" Terminator Barrel
Empire Reloader SAB
32 degrees x chamber
Tiger Shark Bolt
Basics, such as a barrel, fast hopper etc
Trigger might be too light for some, since there is no 'trigger feel' but for me I love it. I did have some problems with it not recocking when I had my stock bolt, not anymore though.
The Price, very upgradable, trigger speed factor
took long hours of looking up and trying out all the guns I could before starting investing in paint-balling but I decided on the PMI E-Force Vtl for multiple reasons.
First it was the price that got me, I got mines with both type of chargers, gas thru, bottom line, for just about 100 bucks.
Second, the gun itself is pretty basic in design and style (basic spyder like upgradeable ness) but with the e-force it pumps out, I believe if Iím correct 10 bps on auto and 14-15 possible with a muscular finger =]. This gives me a huge advantage over other players with guns around the same price and level such as spyders and tippmanns which was main reason why I got it.
Upgrades was my last reason. As I stated above this gun can be upgraded greatly, I wanted a gun which I could upgrade to my hearts desire, and just like any spyder I did so with this gun, got an empire reloader which greatly helped since it could keep up with my trigger, but also a new barrel which is a must for any gun almost (but from personal experiences I believe that the stock barrel isnít that bad after rounds and rounds of target practice from multiple ranges) and other things for personal touches such as drop forwards and x chambers which arenít really needed that much or at lease not yet.
If your looking for a gun to start off and hardly cost a penny I would greatly recommend the E-force VTL, I got mines with bl and gas thru for 100, just about 30-60 dollars under the other pmi e-forces, for 30-60 bucks I'm pretty sure you can upgrade very nicely and get better items on your gun than the stock 130-160 dollar pmis. If your crazy enough like myself and the rest of the reviewers here you can keep upgrading untill you hit dye boomstick with nitro and the works, or you can just start with this cap everyone and save up for an autococker, either way best starting gun in both price and overall effective killing machineness haha.

I got this gun a few weeks ago, the day i purchased it I ran about 500 balls thru it with 2breaks wich were caused by the gravity fed hopper. It is un accurate but then again, 9 inch barrels suck. I instantly noticed the great speed, about 13 bps wich is good for a pirhana.
If you are a rec player or a new tournament player then this is a great gun, only $100!
blue e-force vtl
smart parts progressive 9stock is better)
gas threw grip
a crossfire nitro
new bolt in may
bottomline9without it is junk)
cheap at paintball online
easy to costomize
white flakes come out of the berall brakes balls wit my progressive
it is a good gun if you want something to coustomize but is electric it is great
good out of the box better with nitro
brakes balls like mad
but is a good gun
at paintballonline it has extras
nice good beggeners gun
i broke a oring the day i got it witch wasnt that good
grate gun to costomize can be very very good i reccomend to newebies like me
various tippmanns(durable, but not great for speedball imo), other pirahnas, lots of spyders, autocockers(different type of gun but ive still used one), stingray and other BE crap like that.
Blue Pirahna e-force vtl w/ SP 14" teardrop barrel, PMI drop, !2v revvy w/ x board, CP reg, and a crossfire 68/3000 stubby tank.
ELECTRIC HOPPER is a must for this gun, a new barrel, reg, and then nitro
pretty good gas efficiency
and ummmm did I say fast
chops without an electric hopper, water kills this gun : ( besides that, nothing.
well, let me say if you are even thinking about buying this gun then you must have an electric hopper, I can outshoot my revvy fairly easily so i am gettin an egg2 soon. I used this gun without an electric hopper one time and i eventually had to sit out for a few games to clean my gun, my barrel, and my feedneck, the gun was originally blue, lets just say afterwards, it was orange, the inside atleast. After i got an electric hopper i was rippin. We recently went out to the field and i was keppin up with the best of them along with my other friend who has an e-force vtl as well.
If you want a cheap gun(pricewise) that can absolutely rip and that will do extremely well on lower levels of tournament play. Or even if your just a weekend warrior who wants a nice gun for an extremely low price, then this is the gun for you.
