Boblong G6R help.

Hey guys, im looking at getting my first gun, and its a choice between these two.


First is a 2011 boblong G6R with some goodies for $500 bucks. (Here is the ad)

"All upgrades, LP Poppet, 4C Eyes, G6R Pressure Tester, new bolt. Everything is in mint condition. 3 barrels included (1 Dye, 1 Long Shot, 1 Bob Long). Also have a case for everything. I still have the stock parts with it too. If your interested shoot me an email. Great marker for speedball."



Second up, is a 2012 Boblong G6R, its in mint condition. No goodies just gun and barrel for $650 (here is the ad)

"Selling the beautiful marker because I haven't been play as much as I have wanted to. This marker has less than 6000 shots on it and pretty much mint condition. I believe it is a 2012 with the 4c eyes and OLED screen. I'm looking for cash or maybe trades. Comes with pelican case. I think that 650 is a fair price"


What do you guys think?

only real difference is the oled screen. it is all preference really. do you like to read a screen or count blinking lights. they will shoot the same. pick which ever one you like color wise or what ever your deciding factor may be.

Expect that tadao doesn't make these OLED boards in the G6r's, so it hopefully won't be a problem.

I personally would go with the 11, with everything it comes with, especially that pressure tester. If you plan on keeping the gun a while that is a must have when you service the HPR and LPR, as bon long guns are finicky with pressures. You also will need a low pressure tank with either of those. Either a ninja slp or pro reg with the shims removed works best. Both will shoot super smooth for poppits and are amazing guns, i miss my 2k11.

Im a huge fan of the 12' because of the ASA and OLED. The 11' is a perfect way to branch into G6R's though at an affordable price. Enjoy.

The 2011 is definitely more bang for your buck. The G6R "requires" a pressure tester to tune it before each day of play so you are looking at spending another $50 if you go with the 2012.

I really like my G6R but I am not sure I would suggest it as a first gun as it requires some more time and patience tuning and maintaining it.

havent needed a pressure tester since i got my rapper back in 09......so no you dont really need one unless you like to tinker a lot. set it and dont bother with it again. bob long guns are pretty darn reliable too.

OP, if you are new-ish to paintball or bob long guns in general, make sure you pick up some dow55 lube. you dont need much as it lasts forever and BL guns dont need to be re-lubed as often. but they require dow55 compared to dow33 like most other guns and it wont be happy with the 33 stuff...at all.
