Looking to get a G6r please no FAQ answers

Alright guys I've been wanting to get back into the poppet game for a while. And I've done some research I want to find a G6r its the best bet for a smooth poppet and has an amazing price.

I do have some questions though and would also like to get some personal experience random facts or storys.

How consistent is the reg?

Why should I get a SLP reg?

Do I have to get a LP tank? or is HP ok.

Do I have to get a LP tank if it has a LP poppet?

Similar shooting guns(so I can compare)

Common problems?<---important (in other words what should I not do or look out for.

How hard is it to tune/put into safe pressures without a tester

Recommended upgrades ? like bolts or LP poppet I dont think 4c eyes are necessarily needed.

And please just any other little things you guys find out after owning one that usually isn't brought up in the threads.

Thanks guys!

P.s you don't have to answer all the questions at once just pick and choose

How consistent is the reg? Depends on how well you set them up. Do it correctly and have good paint with correct boring and you could see +/-2 or better.

Why should I get a SLP reg? SLP will give you 200-300 extra shots off the tank.

Do I have to get a LP tank? or is HP ok. SLP or LP only. Read the manual..

Do I have to get a LP tank if it has a LP poppet? See above

Similar shooting guns(so I can compare) Anything that is a poppet, but not a ego.

Common problems?<---important (in other words what should I not do or look out for. User error is 99% of issues people have. You shouldn't set the regs without the tester. You should read over the manual.

How hard is it to tune/put into safe pressures without a tester. It's as hard as adjust the regs correctly. Though since your new I would highly recommend to get a tester or you might cause yourself a lot of extra leaks.

Recommended upgrades ? like bolts or LP poppet I dont think 4c eyes are necessarily needed. It's prefect stock. But LP poppet at least will be better, along with the premium bolt.

How reliable/attentive is the customer service and do they charge fees at tournaments?

Service is one of the best in the paintball world. Not sure if they charge at events, but they do if you were to send it to there factory.

Common Problems are almost entirely due to people being ****ing idiots ("herp better turn my reg 7 turns in because that's what my Ego runs at. OMG THIS GUN SUCKS"). If you are a ****ing idiot, get an Ego. If you have an IQ > 12, get a G6R and wonder why people shoot Egos.

learn to sweetspot your regs (page four of the first sticky shows you a way to do it) and you won't need a tester but a tester makes it quicker and you will waste less paint

Tester also means you only have to sweetspot once and then you know the numbers forever.

This made me lol As long as they don't shoot like an ego i'll be fine(nothing against them) I want a smooth poppet since I have a spoolie already.

Whats the worst that can happen if I run HP?

Theres no mods?

You will blow the seal either between the ASA and the frame or the frame and the body. Some people have gotten lucky and been able to run HP without that happening, most people get colossal leaks and a feeling of shame for being too cheap/stupid to get an LP kit for their reg. For most regs it's like $10 or free if you have a Ninja reg and just remove the shims, there's no reason to risk it.

How consistent is the reg? Very given proper pressure setup.

Why should I get a SLP reg? You shouldn't unless you are needing to squeeze an extra pod or two of extra efficiency on an already efficient gun.

Do I have to get a LP tank? or is HP ok. HP is not ok. You should get LP or, if you have a ninja tank or other adjustable tank, adjust it to lp output. The seals in the G6R are designed for LP and HP could cause blown O-rings.

Do I have to get a LP tank if it has a LP poppet? The LP poppit has nothing to do with the tank. You should use an LP tank regardless. The LP poppit will allow the marker to shoot a little quieter/smoother at the cost of some efficiency.

Similar shooting guns(so I can compare)It shoots like an Intimidator but if you haven't shot one before than dare I say this, it shoots similar to an Ego or Alien marker if you are familiar with those.

Common problems?<---important (in other words what should I not do or look out for. Common problems are user error on disassembly or re-assembly, feedneck screw not being tight enough and feedneck falling off, rear ram cap screw coming loose in game if not tightened, incorrect lubricant used, improper pressure settings.

How hard is it to tune/put into safe pressures without a tester. If you are familiar with sweetspotting reguators for stack tube poppit guns than it is not difficult however, if you have never done this I recommend purchasing the pressure tester. In fact, I am familiar with this process and still prefer the pressure tester for quicker adjustment and reference. You should buy one

Recommended upgrades ? like bolts or LP poppet I dont think 4c eyes are necessarily needed. There isn't anything the marker needs out the gate. The 4c eyes can improve some rof consistency for very fast semi shooters, the lp poppit can smoothen or quiet the gun some but it is already smooth, new bolts are largely insignificant although some users are reporting good improvements from the new premium pillow bolt.

And please just any other little things you guys find out after owning one that usually isn't brought up in the threads. The main thing I can recommend is really learn the marker by reading the manual. Know it inside and out and perform maintenance on schedule and it will never let you down.

Thanks guys!

DO NOT Listen to this guy. You need to use LP only or you run the risk of blowing the internal seals.
