Dangerous Power G3 Info Thread

Quote:
WHERE TO BUY A G3:

- Paintball Genie
- US Military Gear
- Wall to Wall Paintball
- Sobe Paintball
- Compulsive Paintball
- SAK World Paintball
- Paintball Gateway
- A-1 Paintball Store
- e-Paintball

(These were found via Google. I do not know which are authorized dealers. Hopefully DP can clarify (or give us a full list).

MAP is $430. If they advertise less than this it is NOT an authorized dealer.

Just arrived and took some pics:

Box:



Nice!



1 Piece Barrel, Allens, Orings, Cheap-o Barrel Bag:



Appears to be the same board as the iQ:



New RAPS (BARELY fits with the Myth Regulator):



Gun:



Sorry about the crappy pics. I will try to get more when I have better lighting.

First impression is VERY good. The milling on the gun looks great. It is small
and light and feels very similar in my hands as the Threshold. The grip/reg
spacing is similar, but there is enough room to (barely) fit my thumb between.
The gun "feels" thinner in your hands due to the contours of the body and the
slim grips. I really do like the shape of these grips. Almost a UL-like
feel to them. Very comfy and a bit tacky. In the thin area I would guess
they are as thin (if not thinner) than acrylic grips. Flush eye covers area
small change that I like a lot. The Threshold ones just seemed out of place.

Same reg as iQ with (lockable) swivel at the bottom. New feedneck and new
RAPS are great IMO. Both have extra long levers for easy use. No more
difficulty opening the RAPS (and it does fit with my Myth reg, but if the
threading is off it may not fit others). In person the hook does look alright,
but I think I may use it without. One piece barrel with the same porting
pattern as the Fusion. Should be a bit quieter than the stock Threshold
barrel. Appears to use the same orings on the bolt as the Threshold. The
bolt does have the venturi design (like the iQ).

And my favorite part: the trigger! By far the best out-of-the box trigger I
have ever felt, and one of the best, period. I loved my Threshold trigger, but
this one is even better. It alone would be enough reason for me to pick up
this gun over the F8. It is a great shape and the stock spring feels very
good. The board on this gun appears to be the same as the iQ. 6 dip
switches, 4 for modes and 2 for dwell. Unfortunately I did not get a manual
with my gun. FYI, I have SN 004.

I will have more pictures and hopefully videos up this weekend! As well as
comments after I have actually shot it (I have dry fired it; so far, so good)

haha, i like line breaks. my screen is 1680x1050 so lines get REALLY long if you
don't use them and it's hard to read. i didn't know i was going to put so many
thoughts, but i did, haha.

btw, don't steal mah pics!

saweet! you said it feels very similar in your hands as the threshy does? is the balance of this marker any better? and can you notice the weight difference? (i know that the g3 is lighter, but is it significant?) thanks

Does it have the same feel up front as the F8 (just above the reg, the F8's bump feels nice)

i think the balance of both guns is great. with a 68/45 and halo (empty) this gun balances right at the DP logo on the snatch. the weight diff is 5oz or 0.3 lbs but i don't currently own a threshold so i can't do a back to back comparison. the gun is definitely light.

it is thin right there, but it doesn't feel quite like the F8.

pics coming soon.

EDIT:





whole setup:

xluben,
Great pics and review.!!

Looks like you need to cut your feedneck on your hopper.

Where did you order the G3 from?

What's that piece behind the bolt that you took off? Looks like a little hook or something.

it is just a hook for looks/holding onto.

i didn't like how it looked in pics, but it looks ok in person. after holding it without the hook i do think i know why it's there. it is just more comfortable in the normal snatch grip position to have a little more to hold onto.

I'm assuming it needs to be removed in order to get the bolt out?
