G5 and brittle paint (marbalizer, evil, etc..)

I've been looking at getting a g5 recently as just something to play around with and if I like it enough, I may make it a primary. Just curious to know if anyone has had experience with it and brittle paint? I owned a threshold with the stock bolt in it, and I was able to shoot marbalizer without any problems.

The same will be true for the G5. Same basic design as the Threshold, similar operating pressure, and similar detent system. I don't think you'll have an issue with brittle paint.

Yup, I haven't had any issues with it, and I've been shooting Valken Redemption paint lately and that one does have a brittle shell. You should be fine.

I maybe chop 1 time every case of marbalizer. That includes playing in the cold.
