I have $400 in the bank...
I have the car to drive to ANSgear...
I have an extra G4 TechT bolt engine...

All i need now is to justify another marker!


If you have to justify another marker, you're doing it wrong. Don't make excuses, just do it. :P

EDIT: Also, the cup faced bolt seems an interesting design choice to me since we've been seeing more flat faced bolts coming out, not that the difference between the two is going to be life changing or anything lol

All of the G-series guns have had that cupped face bolt. Flat faced bolts are not really making any big strides, since there's no advantage to them.


yah I mentioned the difference is minimal, I just thought maybe they would follow the trend is all.

My g3 was pretty bad. Gas hog, bolt stick, annoying board, hard kick on ramp, etc.. Will probably end up selling it eventually for like $50-60 xD


ON-TOPIC
Looks like a neat design, Still think they should do a lot more R&D to their bolt engine though ;)

I like it and hope they are successful with this one. I'm curious on what it's efficiency will be? I am surprised that they didn't go with an OLED board but maybe they will incorporate that into a later G5 model. I am not surprised to see the DP hate already in this thread, however I hope there are no issues like the G4 experienced. At least one of them (macro fittings) won't be an issue, but it sounds like bolt stick will still be a problem if DP is insisting on using their DP-40 lube. Just go with Dow-33 like everyone else has found to work and call it a day.

According to the manual:
they have a new DP-40 plus lube.... idk how good it will be.
There is no mention of a required type of tank to be used for the gun
The board has a max ROF of 25, not 35, which I think is a good sign
It still has 3 internal O-rings, two behind and one just in front of the breach
ABS Dwell is an option of 1-7 milliseconds, with a setting of 8 stock meaning there is no abs compensation out of the box
Trigger is 4 point adjustable, pre, post, magnetic strength, and length to microswitch


Thats all i found interesting. If you would like to peek at the manual yourself,

I hope they fix all the stuff wrong with the G4. But regardless, it looks like a nice gun loaded with interesting features, and one I'll be drooling over.

He's in an area that will naturally amplify the sound, and we all know how light these guns are, of course it's not going to look like it's the smoothest gun in the world.

i find cutting perfect macroline harder than it is to seal a gun with gas thru frame.


question is that whether or not they upped their quality control as some raps were what i assume to be out of tolerance and shreded orings.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but they never bothered to fix the OOTB issues with the G4 so why would we think they would fix any issues with this marker?

I like the looks of this marker but if a company doesn't fix known issues (that can be fixed) with a product it's kind of hard to have any faith in any of their products.

Im curious about the low pressure frame, are they requiring an LP tank or is it just marketing.

Although I will not be surprised to see Low pressure tanks to become standard in the next few years as more and more companies ditch macro and no longer be sold at a premium.

Yes any gun will work with Hpa. Except I think there was one that did not do so well with hpa. It was old though, I don't remember the name of it.

They'd probably have to beef up their "safety" frame a bit to get air-thru transfer holes, then it wouldn't be such a "safe" frame any more.

Haha I lol'd

I think PE and Dye are too scared to produce something that flops. But this thread isn't about them so props to DP for taking the leap, but I'm guessing the talk around the drawing board on the G5 was something along the lines of "Well, players will trash talk no matter what we produce, so what's the worst that could happen?"

My apologies I read what you wrote completely wrong.

Dangerous Power did eventually figure out their bolt stick issues. I feel as though this gas through may cause a few more as well and well have to see if theyll step up to the plate.

Seems about average efficiency for a gun in this price range. If it shoots well and feels good in the hands and is problem free, then it might be worth picking up if you're on a budget. It's still tough to beat the efficiency and shot quality of a mini/axe, so those might still be a better value and have been proven for years.

Dangerous Power should release their guns in summer, that way it takes at least a couple months for people to start complaining about bolt stick....
Unrelated, the efficiency has improved some, and that was done in cold weather. Looks like a good gun for the price

To anyone wondering about how loud it is, its been decent when I've shot it. Probably slightly quieter than a Mini. And kick is about the same as a Mini. So overall the efficiency is the one thing that would make the Mini or Rail better. I haven't tested it out yet but I'll tell you guys once I get the chance to.

I think it's a good design improvement. I never had any serious issues with my g4 except having to wiggle the macro line to get it to stop leaking Before my first round of paintballing. Once that is taken care of it always shot like a champ. It's a good light shooter. I would expect the 5 to be just as good with any packaging issues they had in the past with their lube taken care of.
