I can't seem to put my upped g3 down. i love the board on the g5 but the g5 is really loud IMHO. I'm prolly gona get a dye ultralight 14" an see if that does any better than my Empire "freak" barrel that i have. I jus got a new 1pc CP 14" .685 to try out. the only other gun i've shot is an ego 08 an the g5 is about as loud as that with a stock barrel
DP called me and said they fixed it... I asked the problem and they said I was missing a detent (which I removed and broke less paint) then I asked if they shot paint through it and they didn't even do that DP customer service blows. I also gave them other problems to fix and they didn't even read my notes on the service form. So DP Fx gold on silver for sale 325 obo haven't even shot 3 cases through it. And once its back from the service shop I'll put 2 bags through it to make sure it works. Pm me trade offers. No DP guns.
Yeah I had the same problem busting paint and have even chopped a few in the breach and had to dig the ball out before cleaning. Also blew off the left eye cover last weekend. I went to one detent and got another cover. Still chop every now and then so got to figure that out. I read where the loader may be sitting too low in the feedneck so that's the next try. Trust me, if it can happen it will happen to me.
Update: After many failed attempts of trying to fix the paint busting issue and threatening the marker with an ebay listing I finally have solved my dilemma. I am such an idiot too. I was lubing the bolt and when it was cycling to fire the ball out of the chamber, the lube was covering the eyes. Hence, bad shots and overloading. Hence ball bust in breach. I did trim the detents back some just in case but am considering a techt bolt now because I've heard stories about the bolt breaking. Glad I figured it out as I like this marker. I am such an idiot though.
