G5 is junk

Hey there everyone, recently barrowed my friends g5 to test, but found out it does not shoot at all. It truly stumps me what is wrong with it, I feel pretty tech savvy and ive done everything twice but this gun does not want to shoot. I air it up, turn in on, and make sure a ball is in the breech, doesnt shoot. Wont even dry fire with eyes off. The gun is pristine, it had a case through it about 8 months ago, and went unused. I reset the board, zerod the reg, checked eyes and dissasbled it down. The solenoid also does a weird thing where with no air it will click at 1-3 bps but if you walk any faster it stops, any ideas whats wrong? Im completely stumped

battery or grease the noid. All DP spool valves should have the noid greased when bought new. They sit on the shelf and factory grease gunks up. Its really bad grease.


The gun is not junk, it needs to be maintained just ONE TIME in order to shoot great for you every time. You should read this thread

G5's need proper care.

And its just a one time deal. Not like the noid needs to be re greased every time you play. Do it once and be done for the year.

Grease the bolt before you play. Thats it.

It kills me how many people don't bother to check the battery first before anything else.

And if all else fails contact DP and get it fixed or replaced under warranty.

Paintball guns are designed to work but like everything else in the world sometimes there are lemons. Which is why there are warranties.

So, would it be advisable for me to get a G5 or not? When I get it, just charge up the battery and check the solenoid? Because I would like a gun that is good for speedball/airball. I'm afraid to buy one and get frustrated with all of the mechanical issues goin on with it before I can use it one time.

if you don't have an adjustable tank reg, get the g4 instead.

Well you know what I mean. Will any regular HPA tank work with it? They usually have the regulators on them, don't they? I was thinkin of gettin a spyder fasta hopper and a guerrilla air HPA tank. Also, can HPA tanks be filled with just a regular air compressor with an adapter on it, right?

Well, maintenance, you know what I mean.

Don't HPA tanks come with regulators on them? If not, where can you get one? Also, can you fill an HPA tank with just an air compressor with an adapter on it? I'm tryin to change over to HPA instead of co2 for accuracy's sake.

The regulators output different pressure. You should get a ninja tank because the regulator is adjustable. You can set it to LP (450-550psi) or HP (800-850psi)

The G5 is recommended to use LP output.

So it's like a velocity adjuster on a low end marker.

On the back of cheaper guns there is a way you can turn the velocity up or down using a hex key. It's usually on the back, near the bolt. That's neither here nor there.

With HPA tanks, is it possible to fill it with an air compressor, if you had the right adapter?

Do NOT use CO2 and Don't use high pressure tank. you need a Low pressure or Mid Pressure tank.
