Trading my G4 for a fully loaded G3????

So this past sundays I played, one of the kid from another team ask me if I wanna trade my G4 to his fully upgraded G3. He has a G3 with dye hyper3 reg, virtue eyes, tech t engine bolt, Planet eclipse POPS ASA, Ape Rampage Board, and a HAMMERHEAD MOFO barrel. On my G4 I only have a tech t engine bolt the rest is stock. I didnt get a chance to shoot his G3 because I was about to go home at that time. I told him, Ill think about it. So please can someone enlighten me if this trade works in the favor of me????? Is this a good deal??????

i differ from my two DP brothers from the top post. i like my G3 better. it would really be up to you. shoot the G3 first and then decide, im not sure if our experience should weigh in to your decision making but im my opinion i would shoot a G3 even though the trigger sucks. with both techt'ed it should only be a matter to your own preference and difference of smoothness and efficiency between the two are tiny. so it depends on "your feel", you would probably would not like the G3 trigger compare to G4 trigger.

Is the g3 OLED? If so I'd take the G3.

yes it's an OLED APE RAMPAGE BOARD. I just texted him that I will try to shoot it first then I will make my decision. Thanks for the advice everyone

to me the g4 fits my hands much better and has a much nicer trigger (even nicer than the cp available for the g3)

the stock g4 board is just fine. id rather have a nice fitting gun with the g4 board and a less comfotable gun with the oled ape board (coming from someone who owns both and has oled ape boards)

virtue eyes and pops asa dont make the gun any better than it was.


i suggest getting your self a nice color matched barrel to match your g4. it will shoot just as nice if not nicer and feel great in the hands.

I completely disagree with firefox!! I have owned the entire line of dp markers except the e1. From Revi to the g3 I ended up keeping my green black g3 se and my pink/black fx.

My g3 is very similar to the one your talking about trading for.
Has...
Dye Hyper 3, Tech T L7 HE Engine, TBO Carbon Sling Trigger, Green Laser Eyes, Ape Rampage Oled Board, and clear green stinger grips, dye carbon fiber boomy.... I love the gun!!! Ive shot all brands and high ends and have yet to find a gun I like better..

I currently have a specr as well (for sale) and just traded my g4 with oled board.
Considering a new g4 is $289.99 i say again!! get the g3 with more than that in upgrades..

However i do agree with firefox the g4 trigger is set up better but there are great trigger options for g3 that are just as comfy.

I've never shot a g3 but consider this. The g4 doesn't need a board, has a great trigger and its still a current model.

G3 all the way, G4 has cheaper reg, but better board, so if you are getting APE OLED, do it, no questions about it.

its usually the trigger that kills the G3's comfort. unless its has a TBO trigger.

we are talking about the stock G3 and not the G3 Spec R. the G3 SR trigger is really good in my opinion.

you are correct. only difference between the trigger in G4 and Specr is the shape of the trigger, they look identical but they're not. G4 sticks out a little bit more.
