I think Huck is right. Pirahna is not in business anymore. They did however make Spyder clones with the STBB configuration. If you want a Pirahna, look for a good Spyder. 2012 Fenix, 2009 Electra, VS or RS series are solid too.

If I'm not mistaken, they are owned by Empire paintball, and I think they still sell a basic model for beginners

With that said, it's mechanical, and full auto is overrated.
Why would you want to waste even more paint?

Last season a lot of brands got shuffled up and some got dropped or renamed. I think Empire is selling the old Piranha as the Empire ER3.

full auto is never needed, you can shoot just as fast in semi auto.

None of the fields I've looked up so far here in Phoenix allow it.

i believe you are correct, the design did change a bit though, i know the frames were re-worked a bit as parts from the new ones wont work with the old ones

i think though that piranha is still making some rental markers under the fish title, not positive about that though

I've only heard rumor of it being allowed in pro level tournies. But have nothing further to go on.

Ramping can be explained very simply as more than one shot per trigger pull

but if you hold the trigger in, it will not continue to fire.

Indeed

It can get a bit technical to explain fully, and I don't really feel like explaining it to the best of my knowledge, since I myself could also be misunderstanding ramping.
I never use it, I can shoot fast enough in semi

Ok, in short terms. How many rounds will fire in Millenium ramp as opposed to PSP?

PSP is 12.5 bps right now, and I think Millennium is still at 15 bps

As for how many shots it will shoot per trigger pull, I know there are many different kinds of PSP ramping, but the most common is PSP 3-shot
I have no idea how Millennium works

Millennium works by kicking the firing rate up to your board's max rate of fire as long as a minimum rate of fire is maintained I think it is something like 6.5bps or 8bps or something it gets tweaked often. So if it kicks in at 8bps and your max rate of fire is 15bps when you pull the trigger at 8bps it bumps it up to 15bps and keeps firing at 15ps as long as you keep pulling the trigger at 8bps.

you know what would be interesting?

a league where you could run any mode on your marker and as many bps as you wanted BUT....all teams were limited to only carry a set amount of paint out to the field for each game

There's actually talk of trying to do this. I dont think it will ever go nppl or psp, but a place in
Chicago is having a limited paint tourney in the near future.
