My guess is that it probably shoots somewhere in the mid 30's range. I'm not fully positive about though so don't quote me.

In Topic: dp F8 vs Invert min

Mini, Or f8, poppet or spoolie you choose

Both of these guns are poppets. However, the F8 does get better efficiency, and is easier to maintain. I would personally go with the F8 on this one.

Since this is your very first marker, I'd imagine you don't have a lot of tournament plans for the near future, so stuff such as psp 3 shot might not be that important to you. Also, THE G3 IS TOURNAMENT LEGAL, it may use psp ramping instead of the 3 shot (which is much better than ramping), but that is still completely tournament legal.

Even though people say that the UL frame is the best thing ever, some people don't like the feal of it. I personally like the feel of the G3 over the SLG UL, so it is very important to go and feel both guns for yourselves. See if there is any body at your field who owns these guns and will let you play a game or two with them so you can get a better opinion.

As stated above several times, the advantages for the SLG UL are the amazing board, trigger, frame (in some opinions), and regulator (arguably the best on the market).

The G3 has a better barrel, much better ASA (which does matter in some peoples opinion), feedneck seems to be a little better on the G3 from what I've seen (but the SLG also has a good one), maintenance is easier with the G3 IMO, and the G3 weighs a little less.

Both of these guns are great, you won't be sorry with either one. If you are planning on entering tournaments, and need a gun that meets the requirements right out of the box, get the SLG UL. If you are probably going to just play rec at your field, and might play a little bit of tourneys down the road, the I would say get the G3.

As I said above, since this is your first gun, you probably won't need all of the tourney stuff on the SLG UL. The G3 should be more than enough for what you'll need. However, the most important thing is to feel and shoot both guns yourself, maybee even break them down and clean them if you can. After you do this, then you can better base you opinion on the pro's and con's of each gun, and decide if you'll be playing a lot of tournaments soon.

Hope this helped you in your decision.

Thanks for all of your help guys, I think it looks like I'll be going with the Protos.

A QEV is a Quick Exhaust Valve. It allows a valve or ram to cycle faster by venting air faster. How you install it depends on what gun you have.

I have an ion with lots of ups and a 09 slg basic

I was wondering the same thing with my ion. I went onto youtube and found a good video on how to do it (sorry can't find it right now and am too lazy to look hard).

You need to start by taking your gun apart; there should be 3 different banjo fittings (little grey and black screw things with an allen key hole in the top); two of them should be attached into the breech of your ion, and the other should be right above the regulator; the banjo fitting in the middle of your breech is the one you need to replace (it is also right next to the little eye board); take the hose out of the fitting in their and put it into your new QEV; screw your QEV back into the hole (it should only take about 2 complete turns).

That is it, your QEV is now installed and your gun will shoot much faster and more efficient. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOT OVER-SCREW THE QEV, EVER!!! It will destroy the QEV, and will probably destroy the hole in your breech as well.

Hope this helped you.
