aparently the effiency is very close to that of a luxe, maybe even bettter.

it wont as smooth as the luxe and it will be a little more kicky but nothing terrible. considering you have a working luxe, maintaining a g5 wont be hard for you like it is for new players.

follow this thread when you get the g5 and you should be set. http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3457681

yea im not worried about maintenance...if i can keep the luxe in check im sure i can keep anything else in check...

I know whatever back up i get isnt going to be as smooth or quiet as my current gun. Just looking for a back up in case something haywire happens...may never use my back up

also that thread was for a G4. I used to have a G4 so i was aware of the bolt stick

the g5 is a g4 with different milling and modified bolt. the board and trigger are also different but everything works the same.

the DP grease is the problem, use whatever you use on the luxe. The trigger will be nice and comfy but the gun wont be as stretched out as the luxe, you may not like this

it should shoot a little softer and less kicky than the g4 but nothing crazy different. its a refined version so to speak.

If/When TechT comes out with its new engine, you might be eating those words.
