I picked up this marker about 6 months back and haven't used it much until lately. For the price it is actually a very good marker. Its super light, incredibly fast, and looks amazing. The only thing that you have to worry about is the fittings leaking. Once you change them it is an amazing gun. It does have some kick but after a games play you don't notice it as much. I have used proto reflexes and minis and they don't compare at all. If your looking for a gun around 300 get this one!!

i got my g4 6.5 months ago.

most poeple who are onsidering this gun are also looking at the pmr, and invert mini.

1.dont get pmr cheap trigger awkard to hold, brakes easy
2.mini vs g4

mini: no macrual line,small, not good if your ove age of about 14 its very small and comes with a 12 inch barrel(too samll). ive seen so many people with problums its a good gun but i think g4 is better. sells for 350$

g4: extreemely light! 1.7 lbs. very customizable trigger, shoots accuratley,few problums. shoots up to 35bps and progrmable. it can fit many personalitys and is upgradeable. sells for 300$

Pros: Light, excellent performance
Cons: Bolt stick!!!
Pros:
The G4 is super simple, has no springs or valves and the bolt slides on the o-rings rather than the o-rings sliding inside the gun meaning you will never create wear inside the gun or scratch the gun internals on some grit. The only thing dirt or poor lubrication may damage is the bolt and o-rings. It is possibly the simplest spool valve design out there. These were big reasons why I bought the G4. I think DP did a great job making an inexpensive gun capable of competing with much more costly spool valve guns. A Dye DM11 new will cost you $1000+ and wont shoot any better. The G4 shoots reliably at 35bps!!! The machining and anno of the gun is well done and precise. I have never had a chop or break in the gun.

Cons:
I bought a used G4. I aired up and immediately had severe bolt stick. By the time I was through I had rebuilt the solenoid and replaced all the bolt o-rings because someone lubed with the wrong grease swelling them. Once I replaced all the o-rings I lubed with TechT juice drops for about 2 cases before going back to DOW33 on the bolt. The back cap o-ring inside the bolt leaked a little until I replaced it. I haven't had any problems since. Compared with way more expensive spool valve guns it is less consistent. Perhaps a different regulator would fix that. The back cap may work its way loose despite being snugged down. Mine will slowly unscrew itself at about 1/8th turn per 1000 shots. It has close to the worst efficiency in spool valve guns.

Now that the gun works like it is supposed to...
I really LOVE this gun!!! It is light, great ASA, excellent clamping feed neck, good on batteries, as nearly as efficient as way more expensive guns and as quiet. Considering it costs $300 new, it is a good deal. Don't listen to the "high end guys" who hate inexpensive stuff because they paid a lot for their gun. You should average over 6 pods on a 68/4500 tank with the stock bolt. The TechT bolt upgrade will give you another pod or two and less recoil and get you into the middle of the crowd of expensive spoolies. With a TechT bolt and comparing with much more expensive spool valve guns the efficiency, recoil, looks and sound signature are on par with higher end spoolies. The trigger adjustments are great allowing for refining it to your style of shooting. For the cost you can't beat the G4.

Suggested ups:
1. Get a barrel kit! Stock barrels are good for one thing, not being used. Freak inserts with a deadly winds barrel are awesome. The old Empire 7 piece barrel kits are great if you don't mind older used kits.
2. Maybe a different ASA if your tank reg hits the end of the RAPS lever or cut the end of the lever off. My Guerrilla air regs did. I got a POPS ASA and used the RAPS ASA elsewhere.
3. Techt L7 bolt if you want better efficiency and less recoil.
4. An APE or Virtue or Seventh Element OLED board if you can't live with looking at the light and pressing the trigger/power button to set the board. Really how often do you need to adjust the board? The stock board works great. The Seventh Element board integrates with their Rotor board tying the two together.
5. A better regulator to improve your consistency.

Where do I start with this gun...It showed up right out of the box with a purple-ish barrel instead of black like the rest of the gun. So after a week on the phone with ANS and Dangerous Power I finally got to send it back only to find out I had to eat the shipping both ways...so add another 40 bucks to the price of this junk. It has a sticker right on the box "Made In Taiwan" which says it all. I debated for weeks between the G4 and the Mini and I clearly made the wrong choice. You have to change the cheap macro fittings and also worry about bolt stick. In the end it will cost more than a mini and give you headaches...stay away !!!!!

Cons: Some Kick
I got this gun a couple days ago and used for our ref day out at Texas Paintball. The efficiency on this gun is pretty damn good. I went through 1000 and only had to fill once (plus our air was only going to 3800). The trigger is so easy to customize which is key. I'm keeping mine on semi uncapped, I don't need to change the settings. The guns is really light weight and comfortable, but with that weight comes kick. But seriously, my cousins Angel A1 has just as much kick. All I need is a new barrel and I'll be good to go. I had no out of the box problems except for a leak out of the asa side of the macro line. I just pushed the hose up and it stopped, so no biggy.

Great gun for the price.

Great gun for the price i have been playing paintball for about a year now. Im moving up from a upped Tippman 98. When selecting my gun i talked with many kids at my local field with g3's and Spec R's they said they have no problems really but a few kids guns didn't work right out of the box had many leaks with their Raps ASA. Besides that this guns shoots very well after poking around theirs many upgrades for it that i will be doing over the next month.

All and all for what i paid its a great gun i would highly recommend it to any new player starting out if they really want to get a bang for their buck $300 new isn't bad if you put it up to the other $300 dollar guns this beats em out
