Any word on whether this will have the new bolt/drive system of the GSL or if the ".1" upgrade is merely the frame? The latch is certainly missing from the bolt in the pics shown.

This releasing of the 3.1 was a bit of a surprise. Personally didn't think it would be a good idea with the Geo 3 not being that old. But oh well. BST is about to get hit with a tsunami of Geo 3 sales in a minute lol.

The geo 2 was not out that long before the 2.1 came out. Eclipse is not stupid to make the same engine as the GSL as that would destroy the values of the Geo 3 as it is. we should expect it in the Geo 4.

My understanding is that the 3.1 is the 3 with the Lv1 style frame, reg and rubber. The GSL has the new internals.

So whats the difference between the 3.1 and the SL? Also is the SL the most expensive marker ever?

I would think that'd be the case because otherwise you'd pay a premium for just the GSL's barrels, latch and milling.

Exactly, nobody here is using common business practice, asking silly questions and wanting a GSL at the Geo 3 price tag. even looking at the pictures, you can tell the 3.1 has the same back cap as the 3.0, and if somebody took the time to compare the engines like i did, they would notice the back cap on the GSL is designed smaller and compact to make room for the quick release. I don't think the GSL bolt would even fit in a 3.1. It looks shorter in the pictures.

Why would you release a 1850$ gun, then not even a week later announce a 3.1 geo for 1350~ with the same features? Just retarded. Common sense is not so common these days i guess.

I think you'll be right. The backcap is different on the 3.1 - same style as the previous GEOs which probably means the same drivetrain. So yes, LV1-style frame with the GEO2.1 internals.

Price? I reckon about the same as the LV1, maybe a tad cheaper.

But like you all, think it is a bit strange to release the 3.1 at the same time as the GSL - would have though the 3.1 would come 6months or so after the GSL - but it is PE's party, so they can do what they like
Regardless, it is going to be a very good marker and sell really well.

From what I understand reading the posts... the 3.1 is the 3.0 with the Lv1 Style frame, reg and rubber grips... Thats it.

All im seeing here is value of the geo3 is going wayyy down... once they drop itll be time for me to pick one up!!

Your dealer should double check with Planet. I'm not often wrong.

My dealer spoke to planet today and Tom @Planet told him it should arrive in about 2 weeks at minimum. I've preordered one so i really hope it arrives asap

PE has stated they will never implement a true gas-thru frame, mainly because that way the gun cant be gassed with the frame removed. Creates tech issue headaches.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
