Description

Introducing the Piranha TR MK1 from G&G, a unique G&G design building upon the success of G&Gs GTP gas system found in the GTP9 and SMC-9. The Piranha is a high speed design, featuring an extremely light split slide and a fixed outer barrel for enhanced accuracy. Let's take a closer look at what makes the Piranha TR MK1 such an impressive design...

Starting from the front we can find a 12mm CW female thread at the tip of the fixed alloy outer barrel. With the appropriate adaptor, this pistol is capable of mounting some of the heavier tracer units and suppressors out there due to its fixed barrel design. The barrel being fixed in place, surrounded by the fixed fore-slide, increases the accuracy potential of this pistol over more common tilting barrel pistols. The fixed fore-slide provides a Picatinny rail at the 12 o'clock position for mounting optical sights, which has a grove machined into the centre to allow you to see your iron sights should you chose not to take advantage of the rail by mounting a Red dot sight. The iron sights are non-adjustable combat white dot sights and are nice and visible and easy to align. The lack of adjustability is useful for a combat pistol that may get bumped and knocked around, the lack of adjustment reduces the possibility of failure and keeps the pistol low profile for a smooth draw from a holster. 

As we move rearward we come to the reciprocating section of the split slide, which is approximately half the size and weight of a standard full slide, giving this pistol its immense cyclic rate and superb gas efficiency. The slide features "G&G ARMAMENT" engraved on the left side with a G&G logo laser-etched just above, and "9mm x 19" laser-etched into the left side. The slide serrations are of a modern, swept-back design, ensuring you can grip the pistols slide to cock it without slipping off, whilst blending in well with the aggressive look of the Piranha TR.

The slide release for this pistol can be found on either side of the pistol in a similar location to the EU-series of handguns, though the lever is larger and easier to access, sitting right under your thumb when taking a firing grip. The pistol's frame is constructed of a high-density polymer material and features texturing on the gripping surfaces to prevent the pistol from slipping from the shooter's grasp in bad weather conditions. On closer inspection, the texturing comprises of tiny little G&G logos, neat! The pistol grip also has the model name "Piranha" moulded in on either side, completing the professional appearance of this pistol. 

The magazine release can be found in the usual spot, between the pistol grip and trigger guard, and is in the form of a triangular button with texture to ensure you hit it when you need to. The magazine release can be removed and reinstalled on the right side of the pistol to optimize the pistol for left-handed users, making this one of the few pistols which we can call truly ambidextrous. The trigger is of a two-stage design, similar to an M&P pistol, giving a short and light pull but with the added safety of knowing the pistol will only fire if the entire trigger is pulled. There is also a teeny tiny little button on the trigger itself which locks the two-stage trigger, rendering the gun completely safe; a thoughtful feature given some countries require a manual safety by law. At the middle point of the frame we can find the disassembly lever, which is present on both sides and allows the pistols slide to be removed for maintenance. To do so you will need to lock the slide back, align the disassembly lever with the cut out on the slide, then release the slide, keeping it under control, and the upper of the pistol should slide straight off. 

Internally, the Piranha TR sports G&Gs latest GBB innovation. Known as the Whirl Cylinder Valve, which is designed to ensure that the propellant from the magazine doesn't freeze inside the pistol and inhibit its performance. Coupled with their enlarged gas valve, which allows more gas to be loaded into the magazine, increasing its efficiency. The HOP unit is of G&Gs proprietory GTP system, which allows adjustment without disassembling the pistol. This is done by inserting the included HOP adjustment tool, which takes the form of a dummy cartridge, into the muzzle end of the outer barrel and rotating to adjust. This hop system is very precise, adjusting in increments of 3 degrees, giving 120 different HOP settings. The design also reduces the chances of the HOP unit losing its setting under recoil. 

This pistol is the perfect addition to any Airsoft skirmishers arsenal, with optimal performance, plenty of options for customization, and innovative design features at the cutting edge of Airsoft GBB technology. The Piranha SL is a useful tool in any Skirmishers toolbox.

Joule Charts

Special Instructions

These table can be used as a reference to see if the BB weight you are using will be over acceptable Joulage limits at some Airsoft Sites in the UK. To check if the weight can be used chrono your weapon using the BB you intend to use, and then compare it to the chart.

FPS, Power and Joule Limits can vary from site to site, so please get in touch with where you're going to play with in advance to avoid disappointment.

Suggested limits are based on Joulage Limit rules used Halo Mill: Proving Grounds, with a 350fps limit for Automatic Replicas, 400fps for Semi-Automatic Replicas, and 500fps for Bolt Action Replicas.

Tap the tabs below to open the relevant chart for your replica.

Suggested limits are based on Joulage Limit rules used Halo Mill: Proving Grounds, and is the equivalent of 350fps, using 0.20g BB resulting in an upper limit of 1.14j.
