14" barrel J & J ceramic 2pc
extreme rage 200 rd hopper
20 oz. co2
A new barrel and if it didn't come with it a fore grip
No fore grip
This is my first gun and I love it. This gun really is a great value for the price. I have played almost every weekend and this gun hasn't let me down. If you play outside in the cold like I do then you need to make sure that you have some marker oil on you. This gun likes to be well oiled. The only problem with this gun is that the barrel that comes with it is ok but there are more accurate and better out there. If you're like me and don't have alot of money and want a gun that's easy to take care of then get this one.
If you're new to paintball and don't have alot of money then buy this marker. You will not be let down. I'm giving this a 9 because there are better markers out there, but this is still a great marker.
spyder rodeo is similiar to the piranha r6 but the rodeo is better.
tippman 98 custom and piranha r6 are pretty much equal.
piranha r6 stock package
Shoots straight, doesn't chop, cheap, good for beginners.
Doesnt have a drop forward and expansion chamber.
Its an overall decent gun for beginners. 10+ bps. The barrel is not the best, but its good for the money. It chopped only once in 6 months. Marker works well and is reliable. Excellent for recreational use and target practice. Not good for speedball. Otherwise, the piranha r6 is a good cheap marker for any beginner.
Would recommend this marker for any beginner that doesnt want to spend alot of money.

If it doesn't come with any type of foregrip or expansion chamber get one.
Use Co2 effeciently.
It's fast. Speed and BPS.
Sometimes has air leak.
This is a solid gun. It's fast for a non electronic gun, and it doesn't waste air. I can get by for a whole day with a 20oz Co2 can. The gun doesn't chop. For me I shot 1,250 balls and didn't chop any. Buying a slower electronic hopper(doesn't go over 12 balls a second) would be a good hopper for the gun. Getting a new barrel for the gun would also be good.
Good gun, Fast Accurate and Doesn't Chop, And Shoots Efficiently.
I have used many paintball guns but none have been close to what this is like
rocket body kit, stock barell, 20oz co2 tank, front grip, extreme rage hopper
i haven't gotten any upgrades (because i don't have enough money) but a longer barell and becaue it would be funny and scare people an E force trigger
Light, small, looks cool
Barrell to short, body kit is a nuisance
I bought this gun when i started to paintball. i bought it because it came in a package with the gun with body kit, 9oz co2 tank, squeegee, mask and it was only $170 canadian i was going to get a tippman 98 custom but that costed to much $200 canadian for just the 98 but i'm glad i got this it shoots hard, fairly straight shots. but the body kit is a little nuisance and it makes it look like and alien gun and if you run out of ammo you can unscrew the barell and use it like a bayonet and poke people with it at close range
This gun is awsome i would recomend it to anyone who is a little tight on cash but there is still problems but nothings perfect
Chops 1 in 3 balls.
Barrels too short.
No Drop Forward.
I bought this gun at Dicks Sporting Goods. Oh was this thing horrible. I bought some expensive paintballs to try the gun out. It was chopping all of them any kind I tried. There is no drop foward. You need to recock it often. THE STOCK BARREL IS 8 INCHES. It has no foregrip.
Do not buy it. Save up and extra $20 and get a Spyder Xtra.
Great beginners gun i bought it used and had no problems with it great gun double trigger barrel lightweight. many kids who just began paintball asked me what kind of gun to buy i have reccommended this gun to about everyone who asked me and i will continue doing so
i need a new body if anybody knows where to get one please contact me at email@example.com
I have a Spyder and it is way better than this cheap gun.
Spyder Sonix pro with a J&J 14' Ceramic Barrel and a Delrin ACS Bolt
Pure energy 20oz tank
Java 200rd Hopper
I only tested it so I don't know
Not reliable, my friend had his for 3 months and it broke.
My friend got one for his Birthday and he brought it paintballing with me at Woodstalk. It performed well. But about 3 months later and 2 more paintball trips later it broke, so he returned it and got a Tippmann 98 Custom. I thought that was a good move. He actually got a good gun.
Don't get this gun. It is a cheap gun that will break, even if you take good care of it.

Main:Diablo Wrath LTD with 48/3000 pure energy HPA Halo TSA LTD loader
Back up :Piranah R6 with gravity feed extreme rage and 20ounce CO2
a new barrel since the stock is pretty short,
Affordable, Great starter, Reliable, Doesn't freeze, Looks pretty cool
Short barrel, kind of loud, only 10 balls per second, no forward grip,
When i got this gun it was a new one. i got it for about 60 dollars. i al so got a 20 ounce co2 tank a 200 gravity hopper for all about 100 dollars or so.. i have had it for 3 years. it never jammed and never froze on me ( mabe since i shot in the summer but me friends orion froze in the summer with co2). This gun is great but the barrel is short so the accuracy is not too good when you shoot it from far away.
I highly recommend this to any beginners who don't have a lot of money, or is thinking of playing too see how it is like. i give it a nine since it is not the best piranha.

The PMI Piranha R6 is a entry level paintball marker manufactured by PMI in 2004-2005. I received mine as a Christmas Gift in 2005. This Marker has been a constant work in progress and pain in the ass, but I still love it.
Out of the box, the R6 is a decent performer, and is extremely Air Efficient. I used to be able to pump out 900 paintballs before needing to refill my old 9oz co2. About a year after I got the R6, I made the switch to Compressed Air. This was a good move on my part, as all the air problems disappeared.
The Marker is extremely lightweight, and half of it is made of a polymer material. It's tough enough, to say the least. The internals are almost identical to a Spyder, and the operation of the marker is no different. The factory internals (Striker, Sear, Cup Seal, and Hammer to be exact) wore out on me after only 8 months of use, and yes, I took care of them. I was able to get my hands on a new set of internals that are still in service today.
When fired, the R6 makes a much quieter metallic noise with a smaller air burst sound, making it extremely quiet, unlike its Spyder counterparts, which make a loud "Crack" noise when fired. The R6 has a good punch on the ball when shot, and it sails through the air nicely.
The accuracy of the gun depends on the paint. The stock barrel is a larger bore (.693) and I use a 14" .689 barrel on it with most RPS Paintballs. The accuracy is good enough, and with some practice you'll be able to cause some damage. Another key thing, is when the marker is out of air, it doesn't make a loud "fart" sound, only a quiet air drain noise.
This marker really can't be upgraded to do a whole lot, and is really meant to just be used in rec-ball. A new barrel helps, and there is really no use for any further upgrades.
Now with this in mind, you may be thinking "Well this sounds pretty average." You're absolutely right. This gun isn't meant to match Higher-end markers, it's meant to shoot and nothing more. I wouldn't recommend taking on a group of enemy players with this unless you have a serious advantage, which with this gun you MAY not have. It will, however, turn a few heads nowadays, as Piranha Markers are thing of the past and it's fun to get that attention.
All in all, the PMI Piranha R6 is a decent marker, and in the right hands it gets the job done.
