The PMI Pirahna Rampage GTI is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
new barrell and rampage board if you bought the gun by itself
This is a nice sleek gun! You can really save money when getting a good gun like this!! I would HIGHLY recommend this gun to any recreational team members. Even if you have already been playing paintball for a little while you will know this is a good gun period. So why waste your money on some smart parts rip off??
VL protogey, proto SLG, Ion(horrible), and invert mini(tested)
I use the Proto SLG with a Pinokio hopper with Virtue and Freak barrell
Fast, No chops, Durable, very simple. You can make your own ball burst
None really to mention
I Have had this gun for a little over 6 months and I really like it, some people might think that its not a good gun be cause of its low price, but they are extremely wrong!! I would take this gun over any smart partsvibe or Ion. This gun is Durable, fast, and looks very nice. I think it shoots up to 30 bps with a good hopper. I would suggest a Eggy. Its Co2 compatible and its the perfect gun for any paintball player.
Dont waste your money on tons of upgrades when you can get this for only 150 dollars plus the rampage board!! So get this gun
Planet Eclipse Ego, Spyder electra, invert mini, DM9, Ion but i sold it cuz it sucked!
Custom modes, 30 bps, cheap, and looks very nice, Very Durable
Comes with crappy barrell but thats easy to upgrade
I love this gun!! Its cheap and has never ever messed up on me!! Its great for players who do not want to spend a lot of money, but Want a great gun. I would defintly suggest this gun to anyone who is wanting a good cheap gun!If you want to get this gun you can get it pretty cheap on actionvillage.com.
Get the gun, get your moneys worth, and get in the game!
Fast Shooting, Very Durable,and you can make custom modes
Not very great stock barrell, and akward trigger that isn't too great
I really like this gun, It sells very cheap and it performs very good. I have carried this gunto the Airball field and I really did very well. Its better than some high dollar guns too, like the smart parts Ion. I wouldnt recommend that!! Its a great gun for budget ballers who do not have much money for paintball.
If you are looking for a good cheap gun get this, you will not regret it!!
Smart parts epiphany
Smat parts vibe with blackheart board
Halo b with rip drive and victory board
crosfire 68ci 4500 psi tank
a new trigger (if you can find one)
Very good feel
Shoots very fast
Never chopped once
Bad trigger design
I had a great time with this. i use it with reballs to practice at my house with because i live in a cramped development. i have fun everytime even though it is very hard to learn to walk this trigger but after using it for about 10 days straight after i got it i became a master at it now i use it at my house and my friends house when we mess around but i use the mr8 for tournaments and the epiphany i at smart parts to get fixed (broken board i dont know how it happened but it did)
I would recomend it to beginners because of the price and the ease of using it.
2 pirahna gti's
all are similar but not as fast
Detroit thunder impulse (stock)
empire reloader b2
angled asa (for co2)
a little patience
Ape rampage board
Clamping neck feed
Im not wild about the silver barrel,grip,and asa
I think this marker offers some nice options for the $120 dollar price point.
-the clamping neck feed is usualy an upgrade at this level
-this type of board can cost $120 bucks on its own
-the internals are solid, easy to disassemble
-marker itself is competitvely light
-runs on a standard 9v.
-pmi (kee) best costumer service on the planet
a few concerns
if this is your first marker it maybe difficult to program the board
-this manual is a bit of a let down compared to the past
-my marker seems to eat 9v, so bring some extra the feild
I belive this is a good first effort by pmi to revamp their line. For the entry level player thats budget minded this is en excellent choice.

I got this gun because my friend has the mechanical version and i tried it out and it worked flawless. So I ordered this gun. I got it and shot it in my backyard. i only noticed one chop and i oiled it up and cleaned the eyes. it worked fine from then. The next day i went to the field. It chopped like crazy. Just about every 3 or 5 shots. When it didn't chop is was still very inaccurate. So i got a longer barrel. It still was very inaccurate. All of the upgrades I put in this gun it still did not improve it. I got a new bolt new barrel new hopper, new grips (there not really new they were just sitting there and i put them on). I put more money in this gun then i have ever put in before and in return it gave me nothing. DO NOT GET THIS GUN IT SUCKS!!!!
Do not get this gun get a Spyder vs3. The only reason i give this gun a 3 is because of the trigger.
PCS US-5 Electronic
My current set up is the piranha with a proto barrel
A new barrel is a must
A drop forward could be helpful
Grips, and clamping feedneck come standard
Does not come with a rechargeable battery
The trigger is HORRIBLE!!
stock settings slow
The body of the gun is a black anodized aluminum, that is well made and looks very nice. The body itself is very small and measures only 9 1/2 inches. The trigger frame is a high quality plastic and has the typical double trigger. The internals, like all other Piranhas, are Teflon coated(no delrin bolt). The stock barrel is really the only part of this gun I think needs to be upgraded. Its Okay though.
The guns board is made by A.P.E(Advanced Paintball Electronics). I don't know much about them, but they seem to have a good reputation. There are a few things I like about the board. It really seems to be a quality board, and has 8 different firing modes(semi-auto, burst, reactive, full-auto, turo plus, rampage, PSP3 and NXL ). I really like the variety of firing settings you get with this gun. The stock settings are slooow. However you can reprogram it, and once you do the gun becomes very quick. Reprograming the board is not to hard once you understand how to do it. Its all spelled out in the directions.
However there are a few things I don't like about the board. The tourney lock is on the inside requiring you to remove the grips. The lock must be turned off before you can adjust the firing modes and settings. The lock is not the easiest thing to turn off, especially if you have large fingers. Second the modes are all color coded. A different LED light tell you which mode you are in. It gets tough to remember which color is what firing mode.
The gun has a great clamping feedneck. The grips are also very nice. I swear they are made by dye. It seems to be made the same way as my dye sticky 3 grips, without the logo. Keep in mind these two features come standard. The one thing I really don't understand is why PMI did not include a rechargeable battery with this gun. Instead they packaged a standard Duracell 9v battery. The gun will work on either Co2 or HPA.
I'm editing this review because I feel I must point out the biggest flaw in the Piranha. The Stock Trigger is horrible. It is near impossible to walk, and can not be adjusted. At first I thought it was me(Im not the greatest at walking), but after letting several other players shoot the gun...they all agree the trigger is just a bad design. There are no after market drop ins that I know of.
Overall I really like this gun. I'm certain there are better out there, but they cost alot more too. Again I must point out the trigger is pretty bad, and because of it I can only give the gun a 7. I originally gave the Piranha higher marks, but the trigger is this guns major flaw. Especially when I compare it to others in its price range.
7 out of 10
