PMI piranha
 
Hey everyone, first off I don't even know if I'm in the right section. I've looked for this gun everywhere but I can't seem to figure out anything about it. The labels on the gun say its a PMI piranha. But when I looked at pictures of them, they don't look like this gun :bang: they just show up as Sheridan guns. It's an older electro gun and I'm just looking for some info on it. Thanks for any help :)

It's a PMI, but not a Sheridan. In the way back Sheridan made markers for Pursuit Marketing Inc. PMI started selling blowbacks later on without Sheridan. I guess these go in the Miscellaneous Marker section.

Yours looks like a GT eforce, with a CO2 expansion chamber. They work well as they are, but don't get a whole lot for upgrades. You can render them relatively fast (say 12+ bps) with HPA and some work, but they are hard on paint. One good break can bind the bolt up pretty tight sometimes.

You see a lot of the mechanical versions as field rentals. They are simple, inexpensive and mostly reliable. Boss Paintball may still make a straight aluminum trigger for that frame, which was a lot nicer than the stock tongue.

That may be a PMI regulator, not an expansion chamber. I forgot for a moment that they had some rather large regs at one point.

How common is that feed neck? Is it just the GT? We never messed with my son's eforce R6 neck; I made him a PVC coupling. :D

An ion feedneck shouldn't be hard at all to find

Sorry, I meant the threads on the piranhas' bodies. There are several models floating around.

I don't think the R6 has a threaded feedneck, just the GT style bodies.
