My budy is looking at a G5...

i have a G3 that has never gone wrong on me and i love it (i have upgraded every thing i can on it and often find my self putting down my Geo 3 to play with it). I have a G4 that has been less than worth owning. and i am not a fan of the bolt system or how eccentricly sensitive it is to lube. So to my original question
Is is the G5 up to snuff with the G3, or will i be disappointed again by Dangerous Power?
and does the L7 bolt system make that big of a difference on the G5?

First off, TechT does not make a L7 bolt engine for the G5. The only option is the stock bolt. The G5 also works the same as the G4 as far as the engine goes. I believe a stock G4 engine will work in a G5 so long as you use the G4 back cap as well. However, I don't think there is any advantage to do this. Another thing to consider is if he has an adjustable regulator on his tank. Because the G5 is macroless, he'll likely want to run a mid to low pressure output tank for it.

Close to. It is slightly different in that it is a tiny bit longer and has holes all along the back edge of it. Other than that, it is the same o-ringless bolt and the sealing O-rings are in the marker body like the G4.

Probably the biggest I've seen is the ASA to frame o-ring blowing out. This is usually because the tank output pressure is too high. Next would probably be the occasional bolt stick. That's about it. I'm sure you could do a search on here for G5 problems / issues and find one or two more but they are few and far between, just thinking off the top of my head.

^^^ Those are the most common ones that I know of as well. I've dealt with a few of them and most is just the output pressure is too high and players not properly lubing the bolt. I have a G5 and love mine. I've gotten into a habit of just lubing the bold after a few hours of play. I've not had bolt stick since......really, I can't remember the last time I've had bolt stick to be honest.

I recently setup 5 g5's. I relubed all moving parts and tossed in fresh batteries, then chronoed each to 295fps.

Results: not one leak, no bolt stick, not one broken ball. Granted we still need to put 20 cases through these before writing a proper review. I can appreciate some touches like Allen wrench keyways on the hpr reg to separate the halves.

Notes: i used lurker lube sparingly on the bolt and normal amount on the hpr. I could see the bolt benefiting from lurker juced lube, but have not tested yet. V2ninja reg 500psi output, spire shooting dimpled valkin fate.

Efficiency test and breakdown/review to come in months to follow.

Opinions will vary. Stock vs. Stock, the G4 may win out simply because of the board. I think the G4 board has a little larger range of adjustability. The differences are basically board, macroless, and milling. The operation and bolt is basically the same. Another advantage for the G4 is the availability of aftermarket parts.

Or buy a Specr and put a 2FG bolt in it, and be done.

I thought the trigger was different/better in the G5 as well.

I have a G5/4/3 hands down the best is my G4 with upgrades (ape rampage and tech t). The bolt makes all the difference in the world. The stock DP bolts kick like a son of a gun and are loud. I still like my g5 though, ergonomics are the best, just not the shot quality compared to my upgraded g4 and Clone 5.

I agree, the G4 is a gem. People have problems with it, but that happens in all guns. Usually it tends to be user-error.

What? User-error?! That's a myth.
All users read their instructions and follow directions!
Say you're sorry!
