PG/PGP differences

Hopefully some of you "old guys" can give me a quick and easy answer here. What is the difference between a PG and a PGP?

The PGP is a pump gun. To cycle a PG you need to grab the end of the bolt, pull it back, then slide it forward. To cycle a PGP you use the pump handle at the front of the gun to do all of that. The PG bolt also locks with a twist, the PGP doesn't have that.

Ahh, I see. Thank you! I will keep that in mind if I am in the market for a PGP... a PG would be a neat little thing to have.

The PG is as MarkT described and is very similar to a PGP but without the pump handle. The fundamental difference is actually in the barrel tube. The PG bolt is larger in diameter than a PGP bolt. They're also have a larger diameter knurled section on the back to help grab onto for cocking. The evolution was kind of wacky and there are PGs with pump handles (there was also a conversion) and I believe there are also some pumpless PGPs.

Anyway, what you probably want is a PGP.

Price is another big difference to consider.

I thought PGP stood for "pump gun pistol" and PG was "paint gun"?

PG and PGP don't stand for anything I've been told, just like K and KP. Although K could stand for Karabiner, AKA carbine in German.
