The gun is not bad for new players, as long as you do some research and are comfortable with completely re-lubing it fresh out of the box.
I read a lot of reviews and like the rest of them say, the lube that comes with the marker is horrible. You basically have to take it out of the box, strip it, re-lube it, and THEN you can shoot. However, if you have a ball break and it gets on that bolt, you're going to have a horrible time. At that point you'll have to do a deep deep cleaning on that bolt and chamber.
As far as the paint, I got mine in a true white anno, and it looks amazing, it doesn't have any kind of silver finish, it's just white. That being said, the anno is already chipping off the front of the marker after a few dives. As well as the ASA lever losing it's coating after flipping it a few times. Considering I don't really "play rough" with my markers, this is incredibly disappointing.
One of my favorite things about the marker though is that you only have to tap the power button to turn the eyes on and off. I personally thought that it shot better eyes off. But if for some reason you can't shoot in the middle of the match, you just have to tap the power button to turn eyes off.
Overall it's a decent gun. The price is really good, especially because it already has and on/off ASA pre-installed. Something I had to pay and extra $100 for on my Empire Mini. But because it can so easily become cosmetically damaged don't get too attached to that "new gun look".

This Gun is awesome. Looks amazing and easy to get around as far as maintenance. It is a bit inaccurate but I just bought a proto barrel for this gun hoping that will help. Greatest stock asa for the price of the gun. I would recommend this for the budget baller.

When I first got it delivered from eBay(new).I checked the bolt,and other parts to see if everything was in place. Everything was inserted in properly,and organized.Which makes it compact.All the parts were lubed decently when delivered at first. Although this marker does have a kick to it.So if you a heavy air tank that could help ease of the recoil a lot.Other than that the G4 works like a charm.

I bought a g4 used from a friend, didn't take good care of it, i bought it for 150 plus trade of a cheap air tank, not a bad deal at all. when i first used it, it worked well, needed a tune up, cleaned it out changed macro line and then it worked good. the consistency of the fps was bad, it would shoot 280, 310, 360, and adjusting it did't do much to help that at all, so i got it so it would never shoot over 300, that's field rules were i play, the next thing i would notice is that accuracy was bad. after playing with it for a few times, i went out, bought a barrel, and got the techt bolt for it, changed all that, the consistency was fixed a nicely, after adjusted, shot around the 280, 290, 295 range, i liked that 15 range, the barrel/bolt change didn't do much to the accuracy. but another problem accrued with the bolt, when in and airing it up, it would leak a ton of air out the back of bolt, we switched the bolt with two other g4s and worked fine, and a 3rd one that didn't, so that is almost what i think by they aren't made the same, but i did fix this problem by screwing the bolt in all the way, unscrew it a 1/4 turn not even then push in on the bolt and air up, works every time. now the accuracy, im not sure what really changed, but after a while of use, i let my friend play with it when he goes to the field now, as i have a new marker, and from day one he got that g4 to shoot as strait as a lv1 or something highend, i think it just needed to get used up more, and keep clean, this think was starting to shoot better then my etek. but overall a great marker to get if you are beginning, very affordable new and parts one dp's website are nice and cheap

I bought this as my first gun and I thought it would be a good buy for $300 but I was really disappointed. The gun leaked out of box and it was plagued with issues since I've had it. They put together a nice gun but they need to work out a lot of mechanical issues. For $300 just buy an Etek or Axe on PBnation.

-Uses quite a lot a lube

So i bought this gun in 2010 and have put probably 20 cases through it maybe 25 and out of the box it had a macro line leak. Not a big deal but it kept happening after many line replacements. The G4 isn't the most efficient gun either. I got about 700 shots out of a 50/4500. This gun is very fast and accurate. The board is easy to use but the unreliability would make me give it an overall 6.5-7/10
