I just recently purchased a G4 (also my first electric) and I had some problems out of the box, but I fixed 'em pretty quickly. Otherwise I would highly recommend it, because it is soo light, fast, and fun gun to use. I took it out last weekend and it was definetly a step up from my A5. It really uped my game quite a bit. Just learn how to maintenance it, and you should be highly satisfied.
