Dangerous power G4 - Invert Mini - Proto rail

I am looking to purchase one of these around november/december ish.
I am not looking for some super high end machine, just something to be able to lend to my sister when we play, or to use for myself.
I know the prices may come down by then (hopefully) but i am looking in the 200-350 range.

Will also consider Used markers but Mostly new as in i may purchase it off of ANSgear to skip taxes

Rules:

No flaming
No trolling


Looking for:

Quality
Ease of Use
Ease of Cleaning
ROF
Reliability


On the fence about:

Color
Purple (dark or light)
Green (lime or neon)
Watermelon
A mix of any of these colours



Dont really care about:

Weight
Efficiency



Also if you can, Post pictures

Buy a g4, I'm a gun tech and I have nothing but problems with dye/proto markers maintenance wise. G4 is a little bigger so easy to handle, minimal maintenance and the lightest marker you can buy. The mini is on par however it's best suited for peop with small hands and kids, my hands are just to big to use it. Tho if it's for your sister to use might not be an issue.

the g4 is just as tiny as a mini. i prefer the mini to the g4. the g4 is an air hog, you'll end up buying the techt l7 engine bolt for it because its so bad. the mini has a lot of parts that could be put on. my mini is nasty, shoots insane and fully modified. i have big hands i prefer to play with the mini over my axe

the modes on a g4 are semi, psp3, NXL and millenium modes.... max bps is 35 BPS but im not gonna suggest to use it... pre ramp pulls is adjustable from 1 to 10 (i think...)then ramps to which mode it is set at.... yes ROF on every mode is adjustable up to 35bps.

stock g4 board has a limited amount of modes. assuming you're just starting semi is all you're going to be using. if you do end up having to use ramp if you go into tournies then u can get an APE LED or OLED which is an amazing board that's nearly half the price of virtue's....

my only problem with g4's is that if not properly maintained they will have issues... they're not idiot proof guns.... if you lube it even a little too much you will have bolt stick.

I'm not a new player to paintball, just hopper fed, as i tend to stick to magazine fed markers.

I am going to keep it in semi for recball, but for screwing around at my cottage i feel like testing it

Yes i heard i have to replace the Factory lube with something thinner like baby oil ( i heard )

is it broken in? is he using a 68/3000? of 45/45 or 48/45???? even so thats about the same as a geo........

and hatersauce isnt the g4's favorite lube either.. its known to cause problems in DP guns

I did the efficiency test before the l7 bolt engine and got 9 pods. Unfortunately my techt bolt stop was machined wrong(common problem first batch) and i havent been able to test it yet.

I chose my g4 over the mini for two reasons: G4 can change firing modes on the fly. Mini you have to take the grip cover off. And the mini is louder. They are both great guns for the price. If you do decide to get a g4 id suggest the techt bolt engine, Its supposed to make a huge difference(havent tested mine yet) Either way you wont be disappointed!

I chose the G4 over the mini because I tried both guns out and I liked to G4 so much better and because I personally think the mini is a ugly gun. The reg just makes it look really bad, hate me or not that's just my opinion...
