G3 issues

I searched the stickies and didn't find anything about this.
I picked up a used g3 from my local PB shop. I pretty much bought it and went straight out onto the field. First day is shot fine. I shot probably 1,200 paintballs that day with no breaks or problems. Second day I shot a case through it no problems. After the second day I stopped by Walmart and got some JT paintball marker lube (all I could find, forgot to get it at the PB shop). Took the bolt and lubed the bolt.
Third day of play first game out gun is chopping balls and balls are rolling out of the barrel. First shot over the chrono is always 150 or less. After the first shot it is over 240 but inconsistent. I changed the battery for a fresh one and it stopped chopping balls but the first shot still is extremely low you can hear it doesn't have enough pressure behind it. Any ideas?

no way to really put this nicely, your lube is junk.

you need to order some lube meant for Spool valve markers.

Lurker Lube
Techt Gunsave
Violent pb jelly
Monkey poo

try one of those. I use lurker lube on my DP guns and they all shoot flawless and the first shot is always in the 280 range. no drop off like you are having.

I figured the line is junk. If that's the problem then I'm happy. Already ordered some lube from ansgear. I'm just hoping its not something else

i agree with foxx. get some quality lube. clean the old stuff off and put a light coat of the good stuff on the bolt.

i use monkey poo in all of my DP guns and they shoot great with no drop off.

actually yes you can go wrong with it. I have had guys have problems with their g3, switch to a different grease and suddenly the marker is working great.

proof here http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...238&highlight=

I have some right in front of me and i can verify it. If your not having problems, fine. But others have with their DP spool valve guns. Ive been in the forum for a while i now, ive seen my fair share of cases like that.
