Question Outsider opinions of the DP G3???

I've been reading up a bit on the DP guns, the G3 in particular and it sounds like a very well constructed and with a few mods, a decent marker. I have been getting all my info from the DP threads though, so I was wondering what do others think of the gun, particularly tourney players. I know this thing is no SL8R or Luxe, but how is it viewed in the tourny scene? I know when the Ion came out, it immediately became the bastard marker of the electro lineup. Just wondering how non-owners feel and respect DP guns and the G3.

Thanks

They shoot ,decent, are super light, and can shoot 10bps at </= 300fps. The only "mod" you should initially consider is a new board. Otherwise they are decent stock. You can more than keep up with high ends if you are a good player, of course thats true with most electropnuematic markers now.

Dude, if you can afford a gun and you like it, and it is capable of shooting 10 BPS. Get it. That's pretty much all you will ever need. It doesn't matter what people think of your gun. If they give you smug looks, go out on the field and show them that you are a better player no matter what you're shooting. Two weekends ago I played speedball against people with guns from minis to DM9s and I shot them all out with a tippmann 98.

Thanks for the responses thus far. I was primarily concerned with the DP threads having biased opinions of the gun and trying to see what others felt of the performance they have seen from the G3.

Thanks and I'll take any additional feedback anyone has to offer

I've had one and it's a so/so gun. All DP guns all tend to "vibrate" when shooting, and for the G3 this creates a problem. The back cap will turn by itself, and if you don't retighten it after a few games eventually it can unscrew all the way and smash you in the face... I personally don't want to have to be worrying about my back cap unscrewing and smashing me in the face, I'd rather be more concentrated on smashing other players in the face. Some people have used blue loctite to fix the problem... I like how it felt in my hands however, and stock it shot ok, it did have a massive amount of kick and consistency was in the ****ter, but I don't believe I had broken it in yet. If you want it, like the looks and can deal with the back cap issue, as well as the "vibration" at high rates of fire, go for it.

That doesn't make any sense as a combination. Especially because a g3 isn't at all like either of those markers.
