I've got a Warsensor Zues and a Core ZX. Easy to fix, accurate, and quick with a few mods like the top tube feedport. If you can work on a spyder, it's the same basic arrangement. I've got something like 60 pierce pins for Armotech, Miltec's, Core's so i'm set for life.

The main thing with a pistol is practice and strategy. Most players don't think you can take them out and most ignore pistol players to deal with high volume shooters. Practice and Patience on the field makes it really rewarding. Everytime I see a listed broken/leaking/doesn't work Zeus I'm watching it. My last was a armotech in a pile of parts that a supposed "pro-shop" couldn't reassemble. A easy $30 and new orings and it was fine.

That is something to keep in mind. Many proshops won't touch them, and thus "can't/won't fix or work on them". If you are mechanically inclined, you should be alright.

Working for a shop, I was told we were not to fix pistols. Not worth the time or money, and boss man got mighty upset when I took one in, quality one or not. Made me feel like a dick telling potential customers I can't work on it.

Thanks for all the input. Looks like the USP may be my best bet. I have heard the USP may have some issues with getting a proper seal. Anyone ever had this issue??

Proper seal on what part? The valve is standard piranha cupseal if that helps.

The comments I have seen is that you have to replace the cup seal as well as the co2 piercing pin not working.

Cup seals are relatively easy to find and fix, the 12 gram one, I don't recall fixing that, but can't be too hard I would imagine.

Thanks for all the advice again. Based on the feedback I just found and purchased
a Zeus G2. From what I see here I think I should be happy with the purchase. I'll probably be hitting everyone up with some questions once I get it in the mail and start to play around with it.
