GZ Efficiency Problems; Bob is aware

I have two GZs and they have the worste efficiency ever. Its pathetic. People have just been telling us that since it is an open bolt gun we should expect that. We kept asking people and finaly we have heard that Bob is aware of the GZs efficiency problems and he has hired an expert to look into them. Can Terry or anyone confirm this? We were told that they are working on a fix. Any idea when the fix will be available?

I'm sorry, that's just one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. The Shocker, is closed bolt. Shockers although they are one of my favorite guns (I owned one.) they waste a TON of gas. So then wouldn't that efficency thing also apply to the Shocker? I wouldn't believe the person who told you that.

Err... I mean wouldn't that efficiency problem apply to CLOSED BOLT GUNS too? (Typo... Still tired. Just woke up )

Greetings,
Are you using the stock barrel?
If you are, they are HUGE and take a lot of air.
If you are using small paint in them, even worse.

My GZ is the Shizzzzzz... Gets 7 Pods + Hopper out of 88/45 Dynaflow. Never tried to carry more paint to see how much more I could shoot. Blue GZ with Chrome REG's, Block, and eye covers.

Hmmm, maybe the we talked to was talking pure BS. I dunno, I am using the CP barrel kit and matching the paint to the barrel. Everytime I play I get more shots off pure tank. I guess its just braking in. Your right Ripper Machinest, it wouldn't make sense for Bob to hire an "expert". I wonder what the person I talked to was smoking?
