My Dangerous Power G3 Story

I wanted to take some time to tell everyone about my time I have spent with my new G3. I also want to give a little review about my experience for the people that are thinking about buying one.

It was about 4 weeks ago now and I wanted to buy a speedball gun. I was sick of the woodsball a-5 fully pimped out gun that I was using. I went to my local paintball store (Hector's Outdoor Haven) in Columbus NJ. I talked with a guy named joe there.

I told Joe that I wanted to purchase a gun that was up near angel standards. I said I would even consider purchasing one (since I had the cash to buy one). He said "Angels are overrated" I can get u something that shoots just like it for 1/5 of the price.

Next thing I know he hands me a DP Fusion 07. I dry fired the gun... Amazing.

Next I end up purchasing it... new tank 68/4500.... Empire Reloader B.... the whole 9 yards.

$500 later Im out the door.

I bring the gun home and play some woodsball with it. AMAZING.. dropping my friends... (since the gun shoots 25 bps) and they can't do **** with their tipmans.

That week I take the gun to my local field (topgun paintball) in jackson NJ.

The gun performed very well but it just wasn't like the other guns there. You know pms, dyes, cockers, mini's, etc. Other good guns. It just didn't feel like the others or as good. It gave me this feeling of not trusting it for some reason. I don't know why don't ask me..

Well anyway I took it back for 2 weeks to the field on Wednesday nights. On the second week there some kid has the new G3. He was mowing kids down. (and since it looks like an ego.. people were taking a look at it)

He let me try it for a round and it was simply amazing. I had to get my hands on one.

That week I took my Fusion 07 back to hectors and traded it in for a G3. Only ended up costing me about $80 more to go up to the fusion.. (Hector is the man and he always is looking to give good deals)

Now I used the G3 in woods ball this week... and it performed better than the Fusion 07. I didn't chop one ball at all.

I gave my G3 the ultimate test and I shot 4 year paintballs in it. Yes 4 year old paintballs that have been sitting in my garadge and not flipping the bags. I think the balls even had dents on one side. I put em in my g3 for ****s and giggles. I let all the balls out of the hopper. My mouth dropped as not one paintball broke. I emptied the hopper in about 10-15 seconds and all the balls came out in one piece.

For those of you interested in what kind of paint it was well... I don't wanna sound like a sales rep but it was "Proball" paint.

Well anyway I am going to test out my g3 on the speedball field tomorrow so I will post back about how it preforms for me.

Thanks for listening to my G3 love story and I hope this helps anyone interested about the G3... feel free to pm me with any other questions about the gun you may have.

I fixed my G3 and shot it today at 25 bps NXL. God I love it. It doesn't get much better I don't think.

My A-5 actually can keep up though...

and can you please spell "Tippmann" right?

Have fun with yours, I know I will with mine.

I took my G3 out for speedball last weekend and I must say "Snoochie boochies!" that **** was the MANG! I was rollin kids.

Only thing I had to do was change the Regulator out because the Reg seat on the piston in my stock reg was choking air to my gun which was causing ball drop after the first shot. I put a Shocktech Regulator on it and its a ****ing machine! I play back corner and not one person went snake that day. I was screwing around and put it on NXL durring a round and afterwards people were like "SCREW THAT! I couldn't find where you were shooting all that paint from!"

Once I get my Dye UL Barrel on it, I'll be making sweet love to peoples faces with it.

Love my G3!

they are actually good regs. Just when you get the g3....take the reg apart and throw some dow33 lube on it. I heard after that...it rocks. personally I have been using my hyper two...but since I sold my minion due to the g3 awesomeness....the hyper two is going with that and I gotta go with the stock reg now.

No, I'm sure your reg will be fine. The lions' share of us out here are using the stock reg with no problems.

Don't trust the gun to shoot at a certain FPS when received! It's not safe at all, man. NEVER play with a gun that hasn't been chrono'ed, and that goes for guns that folks are pointing at you too! If you're playing outlaw ball with friends (i.e. at a non-commercial field), get everyone to pitch in together and buy a handheld chrono. They're like $70 at Action Village and you'll have it in a few days. Much cheaper than buying new eyeballs, or worse.

Make sure you lube the stock reg, it performs very well.

I lubed the Stock Reg... MY Reg seat is ****ed up. and reading the boards... I'm not the only one with the same problem. I didn't have a problem before when I lubed it. Just the seat on the pistol got fuxored...

so the problems started AFTER you lubed it? Or diud it all start because you stopped lubing it?

it was after I used it. either way. 6 times outa 10 its a user flaw or error that has made the gun malfunction. lack of lube, lube too much, or just marker error.
