2012 dragon upgrade ideas

whats up fellow pb members.

i got a brand new dragon, ive had it for a month now and have not even put paint thru it yet. I was told i needed a pressure tester, and an slp tank, ive ordered both. I was told by a fellow member to upgrade to 4c eyes, which i will buy, but im a bit confused as to which one to purchase. theres a 4c and 4c laser, anyone know the difference and which one is better for the dragon?
also any ideas on other upgrades?

Thank you for the advice!

I personally won't err buy the 4c eyes. the gun shoots plenty fast without them

the difference between the two you asked about is the laser ones actually light up in a color and the regular don't. they don't function any different

the only thing I would recommend is the LP poppet , better trigger, and the premium bolt if you don't have it already

I think the different trigger and premium bolt is an upgrade package along with an anno job. but I could be wrong. so you may have those two already. but I personally don't like those style
triggers.

first off you really need to just go shoot it and see if you like it the way it is. it really is an awesome gun bone stock

i agree on the getting out and shooting it first! it was such and expensive gun, i kinda want to just frame it.....lol .. but really id like to have everything i would need before i get out and shoot it. keep in mind this is my first high end marker. starting first with x7 phenom tipx, crossover , alien invasion and now the dragon.

the ping ram doesn't change the guns functioning in any way. just makes the ping some people hear less audible

the techt bolt isn't nearly as good as the premium bolt

seriously the only thing you need is some triflow on your bolt and some paint in your hopper. don't buy anything else till you use it. then if you want to get the LP poppet and call it good

No, you put 2 cases or two outings into it. Then you are allowed to buy upgrades.

as far as paint goes whatever I can get lol

and like papercut said use it for a few actual days of play then worry about the upgrades. you might like it just the way it is and you can save the money to spend on playing more

it's all good

just make sure to read the manual and learn about your G6r. if you treat it right it will get the job done all the time

You know, the point of buying a high end gun is it does not need 200$ of upgrades like a low/mid end does.

You can upgrade it but it will be for personnal preferences (trigger shape, etc) thats why you need to use it first to find what you like or dislike about it. And, it doesnt NEED anything.

The gun is just fine how it is. Many upgrades will do more harm than good. Bob likes to make a gun that you can take out of the box and use without any problem.

That is why each gun you buy is correctly lubed and the regs have been properly adjusted by the factory; it is ready to go right out of the box.

The dragon already has the best of everything. Quad eyes don't really do anything with the new frenzy OLED board.. Keep it "stock"

This x2.
Dragons are the peak of the Bob Long G6r Line. They have all the perks you could possibly want on this platform of a marker. Use it a few times out at the field and try to find anything wrong with it. Any sort of "upgrades" will be personal preference like the LP poppet, different trigger, or the 4c eyes (which you really won't need). All you will honestly need to get will be the pressure tester and plenty of Dow 55 and tri-flow... and then LOTS of paint to shoot through that beast of a marker.

I shoot a 2k12 G6R, that is bone stock other than my trigger. I wouldn't worry about 4C eyes or any of that until you know enough about your gun/products to warrant the cost. When you know exactly what a LP poppet/no ping rammer and 4C eyes do, then you will be able to make an informed decision as they are all personal preference to a degree. Anything above a LP/SLP tank and a pressure tester wait on.
