My Piranha woodsball dream marker

Well... it sort of fits in here since it's a sort of Spyder clone and we don't have an area for double tube blowbacks.

One of my main squeeze semi woodsball blowbacks. A simple Piranha R6 but set up with a flush cocking pin back block, a short throw trigger travel screw mod, a self made non Oring bolt, a delayed valve opening modified hammer that is also lightened, cut down clamp style plastic foregrip, Lapco Bigshot barrel and an all black LPC chamber. It's light, it's got a nice tight grouping and when run off an HPA tank it's very consistent.

I like it.......

I'm playing with some other stuff as well but these Piranhas just keep on chuffin' out paint without any fuss or muss or breaks. Sort of restores your faith in humanity it does.....

Does the red dot do much with a hopper?

A red dot sight like that will function as an occluded red dot sight as well so the hopper shouldn't make a difference.

Nice marker - The Spyder that I use as a backup-backup-backup marker is the same way, when everything else has decided to leak, chrono at 120 or 500 (but nothing in between) or just generaly defy my attempts to make it work properly all I need to do with the Spyder is add paint & air.

Glad to see that you're sticking with non-electronic platforms!

That looks like a hell of a sleeper gun right there. Nobody will be expecting the accuracy of that LAPCO.

It caught two people off guard in its very first game... of course with all the markers I gathered up over the winter almost every game is a first time for the marker I use...

Surestick, this and my splash ano fishy are my current favourite markers. I'm quickly being drawn in by the idea of simplicity in paintball..... for the same sort of nonsense that my other flashy markes pull as it sounds like your's do...

Those Piranha blowbacks are sleepers in themselves. I've had mine since I've started playing, and it's accuracy is deadly. Even the electro sear tripping ones are pretty good.

That's a nice fade/splash Piranha

Missed these replies since this forum is so quiet.

Played with them a few more times since the above posts and not much has changed. I still like them. Oddly enough I like them BECAUSE they have a little kick. Let's me know I'm not just playing some weird computer game...

They are a decent marker. I am in the process of adding a warp feed to mine. I had some spare parts around and nobody wanted to buy them. Right now I am looking for the cocking lever/bolt shield to add to mine.
