About to buy a G5 and would Greatly appreciate everyone's advice

So I used to own a g3. What a piece of garbage. Crazy amount of problems However. Now the G5 is out. . . And I want to know if even a fraction of problems with it remain. What is the most common problem with the G5 you see? (I ask so tht hen I DO buy it, I can buy the extra parts in expectation that its gonna have problems so I can fix it.....

Please be honest and tell me your experiences so that I can get to buying this little thing

But I heart my pm7 ;)

I just bought a G5 for my 1st gun and have had no issues. Bought it used in like new condition, my 1st gun and I have no experience with any other high end guns. I know it's way better than the 98s you rent. I'm happy with my purchase.

I have owned 3. I didnt get rid of them due to any issues (im just a gun whore). Other than being a bit loud with the stock barrel, I found everything was great. The new trigger, the comfy frame, no bolt stick, etc.. I would recommend one in a heartbeat.

I have also had no issues with my G5 and really like it. I know some people that have bought new have had to go through the bolt system, solenoid and reg and just wipe off the old lube and apply their own dow33 based lube. I haven't gotten into the guts of the solenoid or regulator on my G5 and its been a champ.

I've got a G5 for a year. Great gun, needs more lube than my Reflex. But the grip is way better and shoots the same. Better trigger too.

I have a G5 and enjoy mine a lot. If I'm running and gunning, I normally use it as it is so small and easy to handle. I have my Fusion Elite for my tourney marker.
