piranha r6 kit with stock barell extreme rage mask and pure energy 9oz co2 tank
~Doesnt brake balls too often
~Doesnt waist co2
*Too fast for crapy paintballs (suggested paintballs=diablo/heavy metal/preadator)
My piranha has so far lasted 3months without breaking. When i am on the field aiming for someone my shot is very accurate. its about a 1 in 5 shots that miss. throughout the period of time i had my piranha it only broke a ball 1. I paintball every saturday and my co2 will last me in winter outside in the cold 550 shots (9oz co2). so it desnt waste any extra co2. i like the double triger on my gun i can sometimes trick people by making it look like i have a walking triger on. .
I would consider this gun to anyone

If you are a beginner, there is no need to get upgrades, this gun comes great right out of the box.
This was my very first gun. It is a great gun for the price it comes with. It is great for begginners because it is cheap, its a good gun stock (you dont have to buy upgrades for it)
Its extremely accurate, light, and fast for the price. It is efficient on CO2 too, i get about 1200 balls out of a 20 oz CO2 tank (on medium velocity). If you are looking for a gun that is below $100 this is your best option.
This is a great gun for learning the game of paintball.
Durable, simple, easy to clean/maintian
accurate and reliable
Looks wise, my gun is black and came with this really ugly silver body kit.
It's a great gun, my friends and I all bought markers at the same time, from Wallmart, Canadian Tire, E-Bay, Amazom and paintball-online. We all bought entry level mechanical markers. With my upgrades I own these guys on the field and I'm no better of a player than any of them. My gun has never broken down and in a case of balls I break maybe 4 or 5 balls. And because this gun is a spyder clone upgrades are everywhere
It's a great gun, I'd gladly go up against anyone elses mechanical marker. the smartparts barrel was the best money I spent. 9/10 nothings perfect
I use this gun as a backup now. I don't really use it much anymore, but often times a friend will come over and his gun is messing up or something, so I hand them the R6.
I used this gun heavily for about a month in a half, but then it broke, I waited for about 6 months to get it fixed. PMI fixed my gun for free of charge, my R6 wasn't even in warranty. I will say that PMI has great customer service.
Now that my R6 is fixed it has become quite dependable again. I would like to point a few things out that I could put above:
For a stock barrel, it is fairly accurate compared to other guns.
Field stripping is easy with this gun and all other PMI guns. They use a system which allows the owner to field strip within seconds.
Spyder Threaded barrels
And I have already stated the majorly bad things above
If you're looking for a great backup gun or a gun to help teach you the fundamentals, or you're tight on cash. However it is not much more.

used it a lot never seen it chop
comes in a kit
Its accuracy is ok but needs to be improved
ok for beginners though
In my opinion great gun for its price and is an exellent begining marker stock barrel kind of sucks but for its price you cant beat it and for $39.95 you can get a 14' barrel it doesnt waist a lot of CO2. Comes in red and green to so at least you get some choice
I would recommend this marker to any begining player its very cheap nice to use and for its price is an exellent gun.If you're just starting to play BUY THIS GUN!!!!
Light, easy cocking, double trigger, looks cool in body kit, cheap.
Small barrel, hard to get hopper in,
This is an average gun i have used it at a farm and it shot very well. It was shooting my paintballs right through some old windows in a barn. Hitting cows from a fairly far distance, this gun is okay but for the serious rich guys with thousands of dollars this gun is not for you .
I recomend this gun for a newb at paintball and if you are a little short on cash.
Piranha r6,32* x-chamber,16 inch smart parts progressive,halo tsa backman,20 oz c02
a x-chamber or foregrip a better barrel is a must and a electo hopper
Accurate(with a good barrel)
doesnt chop paint
No x-chamber :(
stock barrel makes me cry
Its a good beginner gun for the price(depending on where you get it) its easy and fun to upgrade all the different parts, and its light it doesnt wiegh very much at all! the only problem i have is with the trigger(stock trigger is kinda hard to pull back) but a e-frame and blade trigger will fix that and make it alot faster at shooting.
This gun has alot of potential and if you are a beginer with not alot of cash get it and then as you get more moneys buy the parts to upgrade.

Light, Durable, Reliable, Shoots pretty Accurate, Cheap
Great Rookie Gun
Aren't Really Any
This gun is great for Rookies!
Great beginnier gun used this for 3 years and still shoots as good as new. The Price on this gun is amazing for what your getting. This gun is Accurate, Light, Reliable and so much more! This is the Perfect gun for anyone who is looking in the 100 - 200$ range that is an reliable gun for many years
Amazing gun for Rookies very Cheap and affordable, i would recommend this gun for anyone just starting the sport of paintball
BE marauder-pretty good, but not as good as this
winchester durango- uhhhh, not even close
tippmann 98- better, but has its weaknesses, too
Stock Piranha R6- with a Kick-@ss camo job!
Pure Energy 20 ounce CO2 tank
BE feedport sight
Soon to come- new barrel
As with most markers, a new barrel, tho the stocks not bad. little short tho.
If u have anything but a black R6, u wanna cover it with some camo tape(i did it even tho it already is black :)
anti-shipon, expansion chamber
Lots of colors w00t!
Easy to strip.
Rele, rele short stock barrel, like 9 in.
Thats about it
I think that this is a great gun fer just about anyone, unless ur one of the peeple who play tourney ball and need to to fire like, 20 balls a second. its great fer woodsball, and is very light and durable. Its small and its got lots of upgrades.its metal, and its not a cheap metal. PMI put the money fer this marker into the mechanics, not a whole lotta features, so this could last u like, 4 or 5 years if u take good care of it.
Well, i think its perfect fer what i do, but i gave it a nine coz, well, its notta freakin angel.
98 custom: don't like it much... not really into the tippman
regular stock gun
recommend getting a fore grip
Very good accuracy. cheap. light-weight.
Vhiny not so good looking
This gun is a very good beginner gun. you can get this gun in a pack for $100-120.. comes with a good mask, 9oz tank, the gun and squeege. very good accuracy. if you're looking for a gun that will work very good and never break down this is the gun for you. not the best looking gun ever but it works great. if you're one of the people that don't or can't want to spend a lot of money for a good gun this is the ebst gun for you. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS GUN TO ANYONE THAT LOVES THE SPORT OF PAINT BALLING.
