So here's the deal, this marker is great... i've had it for about more or less a month now and i can really say it's an affordable marker that can take you all the way to the pro's with out spending that much...

I'm just waiting for the pressure gauge to come out for sale cause it would really help the marker perform better... for instance mine sky rocketed to 447fps the other day but after that episode i've been very careful with the pressure so thats why i think a the pressure gauge should come standard with it.

I've shot a few cases of paint on it now and i've only chopped once one paintball so that lead to cleaning the marker which i do have to say is really easy just unscrew the back and well you get the picture...

The looks, it looks kinda like and ego but it has that useful hook on the back specially useful when walking to the field. you can take it off if you want but i do thing it helps, if you do install the pressure gauge you have to take it off.

The color is insane mine is red and by far the sweetest red out there.

The board is pretty easy to understand, the modes come in the super cool poster/manual it has, the only mode thats not on there is the secret 25bps mode... since it was made when psp was about to bring down the ramping to 13.3bps it even has that mode on there, so thats cool if the do finally decide to do it... which by the way PSP don't bring it down we'll just switch it to semi and shoot 28bps with our fingers only so leave it at 15bps i swear it will be better... now back to the marker.

Air efficiency mmmm i'd have to say if your tank is filled right to the 3000psi or 4500psi you'll have good air efficiency if not it'll go out of air rather fast.

The barrel is sick it's super straight shot so dont even bother on buying another one unless you want to right.

The box it comes in... DP give us a plastic box pleaaaaasssseeeee make us look cooler and dont make us take out the air hose every time we play give us an already cut out foam board with the hose space... if you dont have one just get a sharpie draw the hose line on the foam and cut it out with a exacto blade or something similar it's what i did. Oh yeah and put some clear contact paper over your box and you'll have a better box for a longer time.

What i can say is, if you want a market that can take you all the way get a G3, it's great.

My short G3 review...

Packing - Once I opened the shipping box I pulled out a nicely packaged small box. The box is well designed with trendy graphics and a slick finish. Upon opening it, I was greeted by the G3 itself, sitting snugly in molded foam. I removed the marker and found another layer of foam below hiding the user manual, barrel sock, warranty card, an allen key set, and a complete set of orings. The user manual is informative, but not very practical. It's not a traditional book, but a multifold poster. One one side is a slick poster of the G3 and it's specs, and on the other is a breakdown of the marker, operating instructions, and a troubleshooting guide. The poster is sweet, but if you hang it up that's going to make it difficult to refer to if you need access to the instruction manual.

First Impressions - I chose brown and black for the color of my G3. It's a dust finish and the annodizing is flawless. The finish of the body is excellent and there are only very, very light mill marks under the anodizing. Now onto weight...I expected it to be light but not that light. Very impressive, it reminds me in feel of my SLG, except I think it's actually lighter and a little shorter than my SLG was. I was also pleasantly suprised to find the marker wasn't shipped from the factory dry, it was already lubed and the internal aluminum parts were finished with no alumninum burrs or shavings that you can find in some lower cost new-in-box markers. Also the stock features like clamping feedneck and flip on/off ASA are VERY nice.

In game performance - I spend a full day of play at Three Rivers Paintball with my G3 the day after Thanksgiving for their annual Turkey Bowl Paintball game. It was 39 degrees with a fair amount of humidity. I ran a Ricochet Apache hopper, an Angel Sports Barrel kit with a .693 back, and a 48ci 3k Pure Energy preset HPA tank(850psi preset).

After installing the 9volt barrery I applied the included barrel sock, aired the marker up with a simple flip of the asa lever(which is GREAT!), and turned it on. The DP reg was closed so I went over to the Chrono station and gave it some pressure. First let me say I was VERY impressed with how well balanced the G3 is with an HPA tank and a full hopper. It is very maneuverable and comfortable. Over the chrono straight out ot the box it chronoed 278, 268, 270. So we were about +-5fps out of the box - pretty good, and it should get tighter as the seals and reg break in. The marker has a very slight amount of kick and cycles very smoothly. The stock trigger is a little heavy for what I like but very smooth and is completely and easily adjustable.

I realized pretty quick that the marker was shipped with a ramping mode enabled so I removed the grip panel and flipped the dipswitches in accordance with the manual for capped semi and I was good to go. It is extremely easy to change modes with the G3. You turn the marker on and off as well as disabling the eyes with the thumbad on the back of the gripframe. It's a very convenient feature and you have to press it pretty hard to register, which is nice so you don't accidentally diable your eyes or turn off your marker in the middle of a game. The actual firing modes are changes with a simple dipswitch plate inside the gripframe.

Actual in game play was fantastic from start to finish. I had no ball breaks in the G3(just one in the hopper one game). Shot to shot was fantastic, and it shot equally accurate with no shootdown for single shot longballs, several shot bursts, and all out ropes of paint. I did notice FSDO once after the marker sat aired up for about 45 minutes - it could have been the paint but I don't think so. I didn't see it any other time though.

Efficiency - I am very satisfied with the efficiency I was getting with the G3. After one hopper and 3 pods I was just under 1000psi. Bear in mind I was using a small 48 ci tank that was filled to 3k. I also expect it to get even a little bit better after it's done breaking in.

Customer Support - Top knotch. You need anything or have a problem. Call them, it'll get resolved asap in a very efficient and professional manner.

Closing thoughts - The G3 is one of the smallest, lightest markers you can get your hands on. It may have dethroned the SLG as my favorite electro marker. The lines are clean and it's a very slick looker. Performance and stock features are what I'd expect from a marker costing twice as much and it's hella efficient. Buy one. Now. imo.

I bought the G3 as soon as it came out, wanting to try something new. I had already developed a liking for DP products after shooting the fusion, so I was expecting something good.

The first time I took it to the field, I went to chronograph it. Nothing happened but a small puff of air coming from the grip frame. Distraught, I frantically attempted to solve the problem. Turns out I had gone way overboard with the lube. Tip #1: Do not over lube this gun. Use more of a thin film on the bolt and o-rings. Ever since that day I haven't had a single problem with the gun. I have only chopped one ball so far out of many games withe my G3 and that was with bad paint.

After getting it to the field and playing with it I was extremely pleased. The ref asked to fire it and his only words were "Wow, looks like I'm selling my ego." I really do believe that the size and weight of the G3 made me a better player. The size advantage especially helps because it allows me to get in to tight spots without my hopper or gun protruding out, making an easy target. In all honesty you could give me any of the top-of-the-line guns out there and if they aren't as small as the G3 I don't think I would play as well as I do with my G3.

One other thing I want to mention is the great customer service department over at DP. You can call them up for any problem with your gun and a tech will walk you through the steps to fix it. If you want to order something you can just call them up or go to their newly-created web shop. I had to order a new reg after destroying the outside of mine (my fault). At first I thought I was going to be spending $60 plus on a new aftermarket reg, but instead I decided to use the already broken in internals of my old reg in a new reg from DP. I called them up and they told me it would be $35 for a new reg. I was more than pleases by this and ordered without hesitation. I am now getting incredibly consistent readings over the chronograph with my new reg. I really can not say how knowledgeable the DP CS staff are and how easy it is to contact them for any problem. As an added bonus, DPserviceBrad and Ben are always posting on the forums in here and answering any questions you might have.

Now, I have to speak a little bit about some of the cons of the G3. First off, the gun comes with some parts made out of cast metal. The trigger, eye plates and 'hook' look out of place with the rest of the gun and feel flimsy. The trigger is especially noticeable because it has a lot of side to side play and sounds 'chattery' when you walk it. However, this problem is easily remedied by purchasing either the new upgrade trigger off of DP's web shop or buying TheBetterOne's delrin roller bearing triggers off of B/S/T on here.

Finally, you probably have heard people saying the G3 has a lot of kick. I am not going to deny it, the G3 does kick a little more than your average electronic gun. I would say it kicks about as much as an ego without a zick kit. Is it bad? No. Noticeable? Yes. The main reason why it kicks is there is just not enough mass to hold the gun in place as the recoil from the paintball accelerating down the barrel pushes the gun back and slightly upward. The G3 is too light to absorb all of the kick. However, if you have strong hands and know how to shoot the G3, you will still feel the kick, but your shot groupings will be as tight as with any other gun.

There are a few other ways to counteract the kick. You should turn up the dwell and lower the pressure so there is a more gentle, gradual release of air when the gun is fired. Also, purchasing or making your own hollow bolt is a good way to reduce the vibration felt when the gun is fired.

Overall, I would say I got more than what I payed for with the G3. It has made me a better player and I think that is the most important thing you can get out of any gun.

K this gun can be used straight out of the box...I used it the next day after I got it in and it shot great. Stock the gun performs really well can't imagine with an after market board because the stock one isn't programmable (my field wants to lower the BPS to 11BPS but stock one doesn't cap that low on any pre-set settings.

Stock barrel is decent shot great, it's on the smaller bore size, but i acquired a free freak kit and love it on the G3 it shoots straight and fast.

Feed neck is great no need for tools to lock in your loader a few twists of the nut and flip the lock and it's on tight for those who like to make big moves...

Trigger could be better once they start making better ones, but u can set pre and post travel with a few turns of a couple of screws...but side to side play is still there.

Overall this was an awesome pick up for me personally i used to shoot an A-5 which has been good to me for over 5 years but i wanted something smaller and more consistent so the G3 is what i went with and I'm happier than ever...

My advice for the price of this gun, I'd even buy it just to try it, and once you try it I know you'll keep it...great bang for you buck go get it!

The G3 shoots very well for it's price range. Mine was not broken in however so there was a bit of kick to it, but that would have gone away after a few more cases went through it.

Anyway, the trigger is very simple yet very fast and easy to walk. The stock barrel is OK, but if you have the money I would invest in some other barrel.

Maintenance is very easy because there are very few o-rings to worry about.

My complaints with the G3 are the board and the small rubber nubbin. I prefer a board with more customization. The stock board performs flawlessly, but I would like to see more options. And the small rubber nubbin that covers the hole in the back when you remove the hook tends to fall out fairly easily. I didn't even play with mine and I lost in in a few hours.

Overall it is a good buy if it's in your price range and you won't be disappointed.

9/10

I am not going to repeat what the other guys have already stated. Yes, the marker is light, simple, very reliable and one of the best for under $300 paid (ebay has them for as low as 275 new). The marker is also consuming a bit more air than the higher ends.

I have used it for 2 months now and had heads turned on the field and people asked what marker is this. I have also turned for repairs it twice: 1st time - for tuning-up the trigger and checking air consumption. the 2nd time the marker did not pressurize. I don't think it was a marker problem, but rather the PMD (Pressure Measuring Device), a small upgrade of a gauge at the rear. I guess it's O-ring was seeping air.

This is the only complain I have:
- The PMD does not show the pressure properly. 2000psi instead of 3000 and so on.
- The PMD O-ring may not be tight enough.

Other than that I am happy with the marker. I am not happy with my setup though. My eVLution III hopper (aka "the egg") is not balanced compared to a lighter marker (it is heavier on the back), so my shots tend to go higher from the target. I either have to educate myself to compensate it down a bit or .. replace the hopper. LOL

Good luck everyone. I highly recommend anyone a DP G3 as your first quality low-mid-end marker.

UPDATE: 3 months later and I have upgraded my setup to a eVlution Jr hopper with a speedfeed and Redz Pepper Stick Barrel Kit.

- The eVlution Junior hopper gives an even lighter feel to a whole setup. I'm lovin it! My balance center now is around the grip, which is very convenient. The only drawback is that the hopper fits only 160 round. But pods cure it.
- Redz Pepper Stick Barrel Kit is really nice and comes in .687, 689, .691, .693 sizes. I don't see a really big improvement with precision compared with the G3 stock barrel. The G3 stock barrel (.690) is still very good!!

I do not recommend upgrading to lighter fiber barrels. IMO the setup will become too light up-front, so the center-balance will shift to the rear.

First off i gotta say i love this gun!! getting beyond the hype etc... its well worth it whether you go SE or not is up to you the only benefit of SE i see is the Lifetime Warrenty (assuming you switch the board out to make it tourney ready.)

Now today in the 4 hours i played i shot over 5000 rounds through this g3 had a blast with it to the point i couldn't put it down to try out a pump gun i've wanted to try for about a month now, my only complaint is the trigger is a bit sloppy but not terrible obviously you can change it out and get a tbo, cp etc...

The gun was ball on ball accurate fast and quiet,, (used a sceptor kit)... recieved many many comments on the gun when i pulled it out and others held and shot it, it weighed under 4 pounds easily... very consistent even for a gun that is still in the break in period i was +/- 10 at the begining of the day and 3 at the end....

The kick was surprising to me it was a bit more then i expected from a small spool gun but wasn't terrible at all, although less would be nicer, not a single ball ever broke in the gun, the raps asa made it way easy to turn it on and off when needed to make the gun "safe"...

now throughout the day the gun Definately took a beating i wasn't bashing it around or anything but it took paintballs to the front to the grips to the trigger itself even inside my speedfeed (what a mess) one point i jammed my barrel in the ground tho having nothing to do with the gun still shot marvoulsly

i think i've covered about everything i can think of atm... if more is needed or specific questions (if you think my opinion is valid ....) ask away
