i wish it was... but we know who's actually going to use the bolt and give REAL feedback, and we know that little AGGlets just want the latest and greatest and don't want to give up anything for it.

I had a G3 that had bolt stick every time I used it. I got a TechT and bolt stick was less but never went away. Finally dumped the piece of G3 junk.

Considering a G4 gun for woodsball. Does your new bolt eliminate bolt permanently? All your fancy efficiency numbers are worthless if the gun stops shooting.

I have a new knee if that helps? Slightly used, but willing to part with it for the right price.

You've started off on the wrong foot. Just about everyone in these DP forums has a G3 or two (me). If you would have came here sooner and asked for help, we could have kept you from getting rid of a great marker. The bolt stick was more than likely the lube you were using. A G4 works the same way a G3 does, but most here like the G3 better. Besides, this is not the place for stirring up crap. Sorry to have sidetracked peeps.

First off the gun was sticking out of the box. I was told I was using the wrong lube. Oh Really; it came from the factory with that lube.

So I relubed it using with Dow 33. Well it worked, but it sat around idle for a few hours the bolt stuck.

I also was told I had too much or to little. Well I tried everything in between and still bolt stick.

So start on me.

I also have a FX and a Etha and they rock out of the box.

you're not supposed to put lube on the back of the bolt... that's where it's sticking.

I gave my gun to my friend who talked me in getting it in the first place. His G3 is working flawless. He couldn't get rid of my stick issues. The gun was a lemon so I dumped it, end of story.

I lubed only the o-rings. If there is a specify method to lube the bolt, the manual should say it.

Why don't you ask DP to change their factory lube and improve their manuals or link from their site to this forum. Don't dump on customers that eventually find this forum after they have gone through this frustration.

Mine's perfect. I have never had any 1 bolt sticking problem in any of the G3's I've seen or worked on.

Let's try to get back on topic and let the child throw his little fit. Everyone here and anyone who has spent any amount of time in this board knows the G3 is fantastic and the only people who complain are people who can't take care of their gear.

I would say if you have to make it slightly longer out the back it wouldnt probably be that bad since there is some space, that being said it'd be nice to see a built in pressure gauge, tool less (i mean that should be standard), get that 2000 out of a 68/45, make it reasonablly priced TechT is like 70 bucks so if you can make it cheaper than that with better effciciency I'll recommend it to anyone I see.

Recoil and weight have never really been an issue for me because controlling the recoil on a paintball gun is far easier than on a AR or AK. playing woodsball i always went for efficiency since a couple OUNCES won't kill me to carry around if it means i can be on the feild helping my team for a longer period.

So you dumped your G3 because bolt stick made you think it was a lemon?

Sorry, but if you can't handle a little bolt stick, how can anyone possibly take you seriously with prototype testing a bolt?
