I have a 45/45 and a 68/45. I used to only use the 45ci, and loan out the 68. With my ion, I'd easily get 7 pods without thinking about it off the 45. Now that I have my G3, I'm lucky to get 3-4 pods. Thats annoying when I go through 2 pods a game and we play back to back games- I always run out at the end.

I can switch the the 68, but I'd rather not if it's an easily fixable problem with my g3... I just dont know what's normal.

Sounds like you get to mess with dwell and crud! I'll be right back and see if I can find something useful...

EDIT: You can lower dwell, I know that as a general fact, but don't mess with anything if you can't take a step backwards and undo a mistake. Unless you're comfy with messing with it's settings.

Yah thats pretty much it. See: I used to have an ion. Plus my fields gun tech is godlike and did it all for me. Now I'm like... oh, I know nothing about it or how to program it or which way to go, and I dont want to risk messing it up more.

Its basically the same design as an Ion so you're not going to get much. However, it should still do better...

Ask him how he set it up. Maybe he set it so kick was priority and not effciency.

For best efficiency you're going to want to lower the dell as much as possible without losing consistency. You can also try the tech-t bolt (though I'm not sure about it), and there was also a mod you can do to the bolt stalk that supposedly raises efficiency (its on PB Nation, in the dangerous power forums) though some people have said that it breaks balls... Its called the permanant marker mod or something like that.

Ah, no, gun tech tweaked my ion to get 7 pods. He hasnt touched the G3 other than to sell it to me. The thing I'm wondering is shouldnt I be getting more than the ion? I'll bring it in to work with me I guess. Make techy show me how to mess with it. He owes me his pink dye hat anyway....

Thanks guys. It just came up on the field and everyone was like "I dunno, is that bad?"

I thought the G3 was supposed to get around 1400-1600 max? You should get more than 5 pods I'd think for sure.
-Ty
EDIT: Looks like 800-900 if the marker isn't broken in, 1200-1300 if it is? You can lower the dwell a tiny bit to get a little better efficiency. Let "techy" mess with it.

4 pods and a full hopper should leave you around 800-1000 psi on a 45/4500.

Thanks slink, thats basically the short and sweet version of what I was looking for.

Wish I knew enough about G3's to tech it myself... but theyre still foreign and slightly scary. I mean I JUST got the reg working. We shall see...

and now for the most annoying smiley of all time... :ghillie:

I have either owned, or teched every DP marker besides the Rev-I. G3 is the simplest. If you are playing in warm weather, and your G3 is broken in, turn your dwell all the way down. If you are getting bolt stick, then turn it up a little at a time until that is solved. Also, make sure your bolt is properly lubed. But DO NOT over lube, or you will get bolt stick, and it will also hurt efficiency. I use a 68/45, and on a 70* day I normally get about 1600 shots on a 4200psi fill.

Thats what the manuals for :dodgy:

Assuming you have the stock board, theres a bunch of dip switches on the board, the manual tells exactly what each does.


P.S. I found the mod on pbnation...

http://www.pbnation....d.php?t=3028790

I believe it should increase efficiency but I'm not sure, might as well watch the thread to see how testing goes and try it out.
