G5 a good gun?

Looking at a almost new in box Dangerous Power G5 for my son. He is 14 and does well maintaining his current gun. It's a mechanical, a GOG Enmey and works great, he's just looking for an electronic marker.

Is the G5 a good option? I've seen mixed reviews. It's a pretty good deal-motivated seller-and I'd hate to pass it up if it's a reliable marker. I've also seen a mini that caught my eye, but he's about 5'10 and growing and I think it may be too compact. I've also heard about battery issues with older mini's and don't know if it's a recurring issue.

thanks in advance.

It's pretty decent, the ergonomics are better than the mini, but the mini will require less maintenance. Try before you buy to make sure it's been well taken care of. I'd take it, if it's a good deal.

I agree with tacxplosion. Your son will definitely have something that he will enjoy as an upgrade from his Enmey. The G5 is Lightweight with a good stock barrel. It has a good system to prevent chop & a good ASA.

What's your budget? This site has gourds of gun deals, and a lot of information to share on each marker.
