Great guns. Basically the predecessor to the eNVy buy GoG. Great markers, smooth shooting, and quiet. Bett than any marker you could get for <170 new.

$150 is what Vibes cost new when they came out in 2008. For a used Vibe without a blackheart board, look to pay less than $100.

Agree,unless its upgraded with an eyed breech and Blackheart board thats too much,even then you can get an upgraded Ion XE\Extacy\G1 for that much with some upgrades

The g4 has horrible reviews... Try the rail or extcy they are the strongest guns for the price

Other than bolt stick what is so terrible? Even mike said its a grey gun and you get way more than you pay for. I'm not doubting people don't like them I would just like some more info on your statement

From what Ive seen from teammates they are paint blenders,bolt locks up,leaks like a SOB,doesnt like to crono and inconsistent

Best to stick with a mainsteam manufacturer like Empire,GoG or Proto\Dye

Id stay away from Angels unless you know a good tech and\or a good supplier of parts also

The G series gets alot of hate,but its mostly bandwagoning.People notice that some people don't like something,so they automatically hate it too.Several people use DP guns at my field,and the only problem that I've seen is bolt stick due to DP putting on ridiculous amounts of lube.Just re-lube it when you buy one,and it should work fine.And the G5 is actually fairly different than the other G guns,it is a little better overall than the others from what I've seen

I don't like it's shot quality. I'm not bandwagoning. Guys with G4's show up on recball days, and my brother bandwagoned with the rest of the recballers at the field and got the G3. He wasn't a fan, and he lent it to me on my earlier days of playing, and I personally prefered the ion over it.

I had a G4 and I loved it. The trigger is miles ahead of the Extcy in almost everyway except shot quality but, when you are playing you never really pay attention to the shot.
