The PMI Piranha R6 E-Force is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
16 inch pro team armson barrell. turbo valve, venturi bolt and a stock
If you dont have that much money then you dont need any. but if u like to Have a unique gun definatly buy a new bolt.
It has great accuracy and fires fast. Definatly not on the cheap side
Their really are no weakness's
It is a great starting gun. and it will last you for ever if u take care of it right. It is not that much money So if you dont want a expancive gun with great performance this is your gun. But if u dont want to buy it rent it from a friend or a field and check it out
I would definatly buy this gun. it is such a great gun and it proves its self on the game field soo definatly a yes
none really except a spider victor 2, but its not the same
its stock right now but in a few days it will have
Pmi expansion chamber
and i might get a venturi bolt
if its cold get an expansion chamber
new cocking bolt
Nice field strip pin
Bad in cold weather
Get an x chamber
Well i have had the gun for a month now and i have gone paint balling twice in sorta semi cold weather it did very well but when it got really cold the second time i couldn't really use it. paint exploded every few shots considering that i had terrible paint and only 1 out of 10 shot straight. thats when i decided to get the x chamber. but it performed really well when the weather wasnt cold i dont kno about you guys but i couldn't be happier with my piranha
I give it a 10 of ten because u can kick ass with it when its stock... when its not cold outside.
-It broke on me 5 times in a week(twice after it was professionally repaired)
The marker started out great, and the battery life owned;after a while however, the marker became laughably bad. Me and my friends had just finished a speedball game, and I had set my marker down on the table, and we started talking. Not even 2 minutes into the conversation, my marker randomly gets a violent leak in the frame. Went to a Paintball store, and left it there overnight to be fixed. Next day we go paintballing, and it stops shooting altogether; I try Co2 refill, and i'm good for 15 more shots, then nothing. All I was good for was a running distraction for the other team.
Worked extremely well at first, but the later "stages" of the marker caused me to sell it.

Piranha R6 e-force,32 degrees 6-stage 2k3 expansion chamber,PMI razzor barrel black,Pure energy 20 oz co2 bottle,12 volt revvy w/ xboard
barrel,G2 sight rail,vert reg/exp chamber
A little heavy that is it
I had this gun for one year and it only broke once.I dominated everyone with this gun.This is the best gun for the price.if you are a newbie you should get this gun it is the best most awesome gun ever.you should buy this it is great for new players
Pirahna e-force r6, with phat pipe 14" barrel, vert exp/reg adaptor, PMI perfect exp. chamber. Custom drop forward by brotherhood paintball products. and soon a microline
Vert exp/reg adaptor
Very fast for the price
good center of gravity
No fore grip
too easy to turn firing modes dureing play
I have been playin paintball now for 6 years. I design my own gear and make some to. I have also been through some of the worst guns ever!! so just let me say i know what potential this gun has. I bought the gun about six months ago just when i was getting of the let down of my previous spyder victor's valve breaking so i needed a new gun. I bought this one for what i thought was a reasonable price and beleive me it was worth it. Even before i got it outta the package i felt the excellant center of gravity. As soon as i got home from my local paintball shop i took it outta the package and put in a fresh battery and plugged in the stock one to charge. I loaded my hopper screwed in my tank and was gone out back into the woods behind my house. I as soon as i pulled the trigger once that dureing play it would be easy for me to turn the firing modes from single to bursts to full auto too easily since i shoot with my ring and middle fingers but it didn't seem to be a problem unless i was bumping around.
First I put about 50 rounds through it on single and the action was very smooth. I never over shot the speed of the bolt once with the electronic trigger. Then i switched to 3 round burst and sent a couple rounds through it i never really felt the need ofr these burst modes but what ever floats your boat i guess. I never really continued on this run with the burst modes but skipped straight to full auto. This is a moderatly well paced firing mode not over fireing the speed of the bolt but also not giveing you enough time to go and use the bathroom between shots. I also found out a neat trick to find out if you have talented umm.... fingers. you put the gun on full auto mode and don't hold down the trigger but try and fire it fast enough so that it dosen't fire twice. O well back to the reveiw i guess.
I never really liked stock paintball guns I always liked to add my own special touch even back in my pump days. So i replaced the stock barrel with a phat pipe 14" barrel which gave me a straighter shot than the stock barrel which had a straight shot but never really had a long distance. Along with the new barrel i also put on a vert exp/reg adaptor and a pmi perfect expansion chamber which has served well for the reason i use it for. and last i put a custom made drop forward made by myself at brotherhood paintball products. which move the tank forward away from the back where it really annoyed me because i had to hold the gun so much forward (it was like holding a rifle).
All in all before and after the upgrades this is one solid gun.
My last recommendation is that you might want to buy a delrin bolt because metal bolts in these lower grade semis/electronics seem to were alot. but i think regular oiling would help this because mine hasn't started yet because I oil it reguarly
a dragun FA LED w/ a good amount of ups w/ a mach 404 and 68/3000 tank
Easily taken apart
Has a switch to lock auto and burst
This is a great beginners gun. It to me is the best gun in its price range in my opinion. For those who are more experienced, this wouldn't really be the gun for you. The EXT would be a better gun. There is a common breakdown which run into with every R6 I know of that I have run into. It will either stop cocking itself or will not uncock once it is cocked. It's easy to fix but is a annoying.
This is a great gun to buy if you're a beginner because of it's easy to maintain and durability.
Beaver tail is a must
Shoots fast w/ minimal ball break, easy switch firing modes, not expensive, 4 firing modes
Kinda plain looking, a hair trigger
Shoots fast w/ minimal ball break, roughly 1per 500 w/ stock barrel (I shoot pmi prem. or diablo dusk). Pretty acurate w/ stock barrel. Could use a longer barrel to get just a touch more accuracy. Needs a beaver tail sight due to the excesive movement of the cocking bolt (it's a google breaker!).
I would recomend this gun to any rec ball player or starting out speedball player. Performs very well iv'e never had any problems with it. this marker won't Break the bank either, a full auto for $110 thats not bad. Is a little plain looking, but who cares what it looks like if it performes well right? Ya can always add a cool barrel etc.....
-Piranha R6 e-force
-Pure Energy 20oz co2
-Reg/expansion, if you can somehow put it on!
-push buttons on e-force frame
-Shoots ok fast
-Not many upgrades
I got my e-force for 145 but you can get it for 110 at some online paintball sites! I think the main thing i like about this gun is how it feels in my hands, it fits perfect for my style and i like that! The only prob is there is no way for you to put a reg our gas thru our anything on! The e-force frame is an all around good thing, i like the easy push buttons on the side of the gun for the different modes, but the only bad thing is the trigger on it! It has a funny shape to it and is very hard to keep a consistent walk, i would recommend getting a boss blade for 20 bucks to replace it!
R6, PE Reg, 21 inch Core Barrel, VL Revolution Hopper, Nitro Duck 3000 psi, Shocktech Shims
Agitated Hopper (completely eliminated my chop)
Reliable and consistent velocity
User friendly maintenance
Chops without an agitated hopper, barrel needs upgrading
This is an excellent starting gun, and I am very tempted to just keep upgrading it. With upgrades to velocity, feed, air, and barrel length it has become a very good rec gun. Consider something else if you plan on primarily doing speed/x ball. Velocity and air use do not vary all that much, and are steadied even further with a reg. Somewhat on the heavy side for a basic gun, it would be awkward for younger players.
This is probably near the top of the entry level gun class. Upgrades are needed almost right of the bat, but it will serve you well.
pmi r6 e-force
sp 14'' progressive
dead on bullet drop w/ on/off asa
soft gas thru grip
custom trigger stops
vl revvy w/ x-board
Upgradable, Cheap, pinches not chops
Tigger pull a little long for electronic
This gun was super cheap and was pretty much the same as higher end pmi's, i would end up changing parts on them , so why bother buying them in the first place. so i got this. its nice and simple so it always works fine. i didn't even use it before getting some key upgrades, front grip wheater it be a reg or expansion or whatever it needs somthing cuz it doesn't have any thing. and a barrel the stock one is 9'' including threads and its not great, it crome and looks terrible too, so get a better barrel. after that u should be good to go, i play tournys and stuff and i don't have a problem using it even though its a piranha and all. it works fine for me and it didn't cost much. u gotta be carful not to smoke urself in the face with the cocking rod. i took mine out and drilled into my volumizer to get lower preassure and well more of it. with it stock it half cocks alot when u shoot quick. thats when the bolt only comes halfway back then u just half to pull the rod back to cock it, very annoying cuz its seems to always happen at the worst time, like going to bunker somone. so anyway it won't anymore with a low preassure chamber or somthing. lpc and a delrin bolt and it WILL NOT CHOP even with a gravity feed , because it will pinch and not chop no kidding it will just seem like the half cock thing cuz u have to pull the rod back to cock it. i would like to add how insanely incosistent on the crony it is because it has no reg. Even with air it was can go anywhere from +/-2 one shot to +/-35 yep 35 thats with air with co2 to just killer
I say this gun is plenty good for any one who doesn't shoot over about 13bps cuz thats about all it'll do. with a few basic upgrades of course. the half cock thing is annoying but can be fixed , also good cuz u can set it up to pinch and not chop. very weird on the crony, good gun for any one including a speedballer on a budget
