Maybe the ridges are just to reduce drag on the bolt while keeping it aligned. Kind of tough to tell from the pics.

you know, i dont really want to start a conversation what the grip or the gun looks like because nothing out there looks like DP.

also i would prefer the the oring on the front breech should be remove and have the oring on the bolt tip instead.
i'm not a pe fanboy but i'd say DP is trying to copy pe grips.. adding a 3rd screw is unneccessary and they did it soley for cosmetics. and even the design and shape on the grips are very similar to the ego 9/10 geo2 grips.

So assuming the 20 PSI reduction between stock G4 and stock G5 comes solely from the change in the bolt, both should shoot pretty much the same with the TechT HE bolt, right?
yeah. from what it sounds like

So I would really like to see some test firing ASAP when someone gets hold of this. I'm really looking at the possibility of grabbing one of these here G5'$ idk why but macroless just looks so dang sleek. I just hope it shoots as nice as it looks.

Just picked up the G5 and had a light practice today with it.

Heres a few things ive noticed:

1. Shoots VERY similar to the G4 BUT you can telll there is a slight sound signature difference

2. The LED on the back is very dim. Maybe it was my battery or maybe it was just i got a faulty LED light? But anywho, the back LED light on my Spec-R was a lot brighter than this. This LED light in the back is very difficult to see especially since i use smoked lenses

3. Shot-FEEL wise is VERY nice. Although it does shoot similar to the G4, The G5's ergonomics give you that noticeable feeling of a STURDY, SOLID gun in the hands when you're rolling on the trigger.

4. Have not been able to say anything on efficiency. Havent had enough time to play with it much

5. Regulator is MUCH better than the shim stack version im used to on my Spec-R. My 5 month old dimpled-to-hell paint in a .685 bore barrel was shooting +/- 5 over the chrono fresh out of the box


I am doing a toys 4 tots fundraiser tourney tomorrow so ill come back and let everyone know how the G5 is in a tournament scenario.

This is what i can honestly say about the gun, not being biased. Only used it for half the day so..yea

Didn't see that post till now joe sorry . Did get to hold and and I agree it feels much sturdier in the hands than a g4. The front grip ergos are better but the frame feels about the same. The stock trigger is pretty nice too. Didn't get a chance to shoot it but the sound signature sounds more muffled compared to the g4.

Looks like I know what I'll be buying next... VERY excited about the macroless design. That has been my ONLY issue with the G series.

Mine arrived earlier today. I just finished a quick tear down of it with pictures. Tomorrow I will do a quick write up of the tear down and post it up here. Like the rest of the DP markers, it is a very simple design.

I do have a couple of gripes right off the bat, When removing the 9volt battery, the lip of the positive side got caught under the metal connector tab, I could see this happening to someone that isnt careful and bending/breaking that tab. Could of just been a fluke though, I have only removed the battery once. Also, there are a lot of very noticable tooling marks on the body and trigger frame. Maybe its just that the brown makes them stand out more, but either way it will not effect the performance at all, also the bolt chamber is nice and smooth and thats all that really matters.
