Is a Geo 3.1 worth the money?

I want to get a Geo. Is the Geo 3.1 worth the money and should I save like $200 and get a Geo 3?

its really up to you. i have had all the geo models (except sl91 and the gsl) and each one has shot great. the geo+ was just a geo with the gst and gr2 installed already, the geo 2.1 changed the location of the pcv and had the pops and angled reg collar- shot the same as the geo2... the geo 3.1 shoots the same as the geo 3, it just has the new sl4 reg, front grip and at pipe and grips. personally i feel the 3.1 is more comfortable than my geo 3 was, with that said i played all season with my lv1 and i was used to that and the geo 3.1 felt perfect as soon as it picked it up. its really up to you...do you have to have the newest out there in the geo3.1 or the geo3 that shoots the same?

I played with my Geo3 all last season and I think it is worth getting the 3.1. It is soooo comfy its amazing. The addition of the LV1 grips really allow the rubber to soak up any vibrations your hands may pick up. So it FEELS like it shoots smoother, although the bolt design never changed.

Its really up to you man. Both are fantastic guns

Not unless some rubber grips on the front and air pipe are worth $200 to you. You can find used Geo 3s for $700 so I wold go that route (in fact I did).

I went with a a regular Geo 3. For me the added "upgrades" weren't worth the extra money.

Pretty much the same thing with me. I was at a Paintball skills clinic and my 08 Ego went down during a snap shooting drill. One of the guys (AJ Lawhead) tossed me his geo 3 and I fell in love lol. 2 weeks later I owned one.

I would save the money and just buy used for sure (you'll save tons over buying a new 3 vs. a 3.1...then just buy the 3.1 grips when they're made available and shoehorn them on like people have done with the ego 11 and lv1 grips...the only thing your missing at that point really is the air transfer tube.

With Geo 3's barely selling for $700 I would go that route.

No, still shoots the same as the geo3. So unless you like spending money that you don'that have to. Just get a 3 and shoot the heck out of it.

I sold my 3 to get a 3.1 just because I I like the feel of the fore grip. That's it...

Does anyone know if the reg location from the grip is further compared to the geo3. I'm hoping it's like the LV1. Anyone know ?

looking from Ben Johnson's pix. it looks like they have the same length as far as the reg spacing from the frame.

It's not quite as spaced out as the lv1...but I feel it is more comfortable than a geo 3.

Dan just put a video out answering my question. Kinda disappointed I was wanting it to be more stretched out like the LV1.

the 3.1 feels pretty nice but i still prefer the feel of the 3, its all going to come down to what feels better for you and if its worth spending the extra money if the 3.1 does end up feeling nicer. like other people have said you can't go wrong with a used geo3
