I don't anyone (probably not even DP) knows yet for sure. They never seem to
release any info/dates beforehand. They just hint at things to come for a while
and then BAM, they are out.

But from what I've heard the back cap gauge should be out somewhat soon with
the trigger(s) and board a while later.

Yeah, I was told that the G3 bolt was in production and that mine would ship
out quite a while ago (around 3-4 weeks now). I haven't seen anything yet
and I haven't been able to get in contact with them in a few weeks. I'm
guessing there was some kind of hold up or problem with them. Oh well, I
guess all I can do is wait eagerly

I have no idea how long it will be on either back cap and/or trigger(s), but
from what I understand they will be out later than the bolt.

Updated first post with more links to relevant info within this thread and to the
G3 manual and the Threshold maintenance guide. I think the maintenance guide
is similar enough to the G3 that it will help some people out.

Curious if anyone has heard any actual numbers on this PBGW bolt - like difference in weight compared to the stock bolt, etc.?

Thanks! Not nearly as un-manageable as I had imagined

I must say to anyone out there who has not seen or held the G3, you can NOT fathom just how small and light this thing is....it *feels* smaller and lighter than a mini, yet it fits my ginormous hands very very well....

I am going to play with a remote line....with my Dye UL it feels like I am playing with one of those foam finger hand things you get at the football games!!!! This is what the G3 feels like in your hands:

why not just replace the stock spring with a stiffer or lighte spring if you need to? Pen springs work great for that sort of thing.

about the paintballgateway upgrades:

didnt brad come in here a couple weeks ago and say that the bolt that is on Paintball gateway is similar to the one used as a prototype in the original G3s?

perhaps there were some copyright issues, or maybe they found out the new bolt doesnt perform as well as the stock one...

Hey guys i really need some help about lube. DP recommends using a 1/3 oil and 2/3 dow33 mix on the bolt and bolt cap. Is there a lube out there that is already close to this mixture or do i have to mix it myself? Or is it even necessary to do this mixture..will dow33 by itself work ok on the bolt and cap? If so what kind of dow33 is the best all around lube to use? Also, DP recommends dow55 on the HPR. Should i definately use dow55 or will dow33 work as well? What kind of dow55 should be used? Is there any type of lube that can be used for all parts of the g3. Is there any other parts of the gun other than the bolt/bolt cap and HPR that need lubing before i play?
Sorry i have so many questions but any advice will be greatly appreciated.

I imagine they suggest the oil dow33 combo just to keep it slick and non sticky. This is to prevent bolt stick. I imagine you'd be fine with most other greases that aren't too thick. You can experiment and just keep a close eye on your results.

As far as the HPR they probably suggest dow 55 because it's just a very durable lube and won't need to be replaced often, which of course means you can lube the HPR and just forget about it for a while. Again, most any grease should be fine in there. Just keep tabs on it.

I think hater v2 should work just as well as dow33 with oil mixed in. Its very slick and thinner than dow33.
