Im kinda new to the game but this is a sweet gun to start out with at a great price. I got mine for $120! Its better than all my friends guns (listed above). Im pretty trigger happy which is why i bought the eforce. The firring modes are sweet to play with and with em'
i kick a** in rec play. Just slap on a nice barrel and a revvy and you got the perfect starter setup
If your new and you want a good reliable gun, get this one
Great marker. Very sensetive trigger. Very fast bps.
Hard to tell if safety is on, just be carefull and use your barrel plugs.
This really is a great marker. I recently used it to play against my nephew, whom used a Tippman 98, and totally out shot him (although he had some very good shots also). The trigger is very light and VERY sensitive. I had to make sure the gun was off and the barrel plug was in while we rested, to prevent accidental shooting. I have not tested any higher end modeled guns, but I am sure the Piranha can keep up. The trigger is very light and very sensitive, great for shooting very fast. I don't use the full auto, because it would not be fair. I have however used the blast, which is excellent. I have only chopped a ball when the gun was in full auto, only because I don't use an electronic hopper. After chopping the ball, the barrel decided to clog up (how unusual) and the accuracy went to zero. The only way to get the marker back to shooting right was to clean the barrel (so really it is the barrel's fault). All in all the gun is great. The looks could be a little sharper, but that could just be that I am a graphic designer and actually care about things like that.
Great marker. Fast shooting. Can keep up with the best. Very sensitive trigger. Just be carefull and use your plugs.
Piranha E-Force VTL /w 18" Boomstick and Ricochet AF hopper
I highly recommend you get a new barrel. The stock barrel isn't bad for a stock barrel but that is for a stock barrel which isn't saying much. You should also get an electric hopper, if you want to be able to use its multiple firing modes that is. A Drop Forward isn't needed but it is nice to have.
-Easy Field Stripping
-Trigger is extremely sensitive
I bought this marker for $150 and I figure it is well worth the money. The only trouble i have had with it is the regulator O-Ring was all bubbly and messed up so it leaked, but i soon fixed that. Also once I thought the gun was messing up again because it wasn't cocking itself, it was just i was using a Brass Eagle tank. This gun is a good gun for either beginner or intermediate play. So well worth $150!
If you are a beginner - get it! This gun is as i have said before well worth the money. All you need to do is upgrade it a bit (barrel) and it is a excellent gun.
Excellerator 5.0, Spyder 2000 Compact, Tippmann 98, and some other markers.
Piranha G3 E-Force VTL, Ricochet AK hopper, CP flame drop foward, and some other stuff.
Drop forward if wanted, barrel, the stock is really bad, N2 if you can afford it.
Fast, durable, light, accurate, did I mention fast?
Freezes up when shooting really fast on C02.
This a good marker for someone just starting out. Fires at a speed of about 12bps. The stock isn't the worst but needs to be upgraded. Great for a front player, it can really take a beating, hasn't chipped chipped once. This marker does chop balls a lttle and when it does it makes a mess and takes a little while to clean. It also has some kick but all blow backs do, so if your looking for a marker that won't burn a hole through your wallet this is a good choice.
I'll get to the point, fast, chops a little,acuracy can be improved, but overall it's a grat product so I give it a seven.
7 out of 10

PMI Piranaha E-Force VTL, ACI- Sub-Zero expansion chamber, remote line, psyco ballistics drop forward, 12 oz Co2.
Definanaty a New Barrel!! Im gonna buy an new one soon anyways. And maybe an expansion chamber and a drop forward so you dont have to skrew in the Co2 vertically
Fairly accurate, quiet, and FAST!!!
You have to wait 3 seconds for the gun to be ready to fire
This is one heck of a gun!! I absolutley LOVE it!! the feel is nice, it looks great, its quiet and it hardly breaks balls. The trigger pull is very light and ajustable. I've had this gun for about a year now and i've NEVER had any mechanical problems with it. Just oil it right and its good to go. it field strips very easily. you can put bottle o rings on the bolt. comes with a double trigger, only problem is that if you accidently turn the gun off, you have to wait 3 seconds for it to be ready to fire, but if your on the field, just run around or just hide somewhere to for it to get ready. and, its really CHEAP. its worth the $$$.
I highly recommend this gun to anyone, even if it can be a back up gun. this gun rocks!! and anyone can afford it. I doubt you will have a mechanical problem and if you do, i have heard that PMI's service is awesome.Buy this gun!!!
remote line setup with progressive barrel and expansion chamber
electric hopper, new barrel, reg.
insane sweet spot with trigger, no chopping, accurate with new barrel
issues with recocking but PMI fixed them
I'd have to say this is the best gun i've used thats under $250 because tippmans are great and all but this thing just rips so much faster and is a lot smaller and lighter. Also when playing spyders it just rips them apart because while they always have problems my g3 vtl keeps on truckin and tagging the heck out of them. With the progressive barrel the shots are on target.
But one of the greater things about this gun is that its bare bones so you can add whatever you want to it or you can leave it be and have it still be good gun. Also the green bolt is the best bolt because my friend has his running 300 psi at 280 fps with the green bolt, the madman rocket valve, and a palmer stabalizer.
No gun is perfect but for the sub 250 price range this gun comes pretty close. Also i give the support a 10 because i sent mine in and got it back no questions asked. It was just sweet!
I haven't used many similar products except for lesser pirahnas.
I've shot many types of cockers, spyders, tippmans, impulses and more I can't think of at the moment.
New barrel - for the price, the barrel on this gun is surprisingly good, but it benefits hugely from the addition of a barrel. I recommend the smart parts line.
Good hopper - the e-force's speed is well suited for the 12v x board
expansion chamber, if using co2
drop forward - a heavy tank on the back can get this gun pretty off balance.
very nice trigger
can't keep up with high end electros
not very accurate
Two of my good friends have these. I have played games with both, and have been extremely impressed every time. I have to work my hinge-trigger cocker to shoot faster than these guns. They are very well manufactured, the body is well milled and the anodizing seems high quality. One of my friends drops his marker all the time, but it hasn't suffered from any noticeable scratches.
For around $150, this is an incredibly fast marker. All but the most demanding (or spoiled) players will be impressed and satisfied with the piranha's speed. It can't keep pace with the fastest, most expensive electronic markers, but in the real world, it's fast enough.
my favorite feature of the e force is the trigger. it's very light and can be adjusted down. it's a nice aluminum piece as well and doesn't have to much excess play, which is rare and pleasing in the world of electronic guns.
with the right setup, this gun can be very accurate. the range is left wanting when compared to my cocker, but again, it shoots as far as most people would ever need. the good groupings (with a better barrel, I recommend progressive for the money) and great speed won't leave you frustrated at an inability to hit something. If you miss the first time, you can get another 7 or 8 shots off before they know what's going on.
I played last weekend for an entire day with my friend's piranha (my cocker is broken about 70% of the time) I was very impressed with its performance, though his spring was worn out and without a replacement, I couldn't get the velocity higher than 200-215. As long as you watch for the spring, I haven't seen any other problems with this gun, though is sometimes double feeds with smaller paints. Even with the extremely low velocity, I was able to hold my own. with another 80 fps a lot of disappointing bounces would have been sure breaks, and I still got just about everyone I should have.
For the money, I don't think the piranha can be beat. I recommend it to anyone looking to get into paintball. Stock, it's a great performer and is very simple to understand. With a minimal of modifications, it will keep up with all but the best guns. Because there are better guns, I am giving it an 8, but I completely recommend it. It's a 10 in the under $300 range. Just remember to keep a spring handy.
Piranha E-Force VTL, PMI Regulator, Smart Parts Freak JR., Ricochet AK Hopper, 9oz. CO2, 9oz.CO2(Backup),
Regulator Or Gas Thru Grip
Stock Barrel is accurate but an after market Barrel is much better
This is one of the best guns I have ever used, and the best I have ever purchased. I only paid 124.99 at Pegleg Paintball and upgraded it to be a very accurate, cool, and reliable gun. Some people won't buy this gun because it seems kind of cheap for 124.99 but the price doesnt matter this gun is awesome. The only things I would reccomend would be Electronic Hopper, Barrel, Gas Thu Grip, and Bottom Line Kit and I got all of this for only $150
this gun is very good for beginners or advanced players, it is pretty good out of the box, only needs a couple of upgrades, I got mine for 124.99, and only spent $150 Upgrading, anyone who is into paintballing should definitely buy this gun
