I found a local guy willing to sell a G3 and a good hopper for less than $200.. I guess I found my marker!

well the OP seems to have found a good buy,
but I shall add my advice anyways.

There are plenty of options to choose from, although there is a difference between "upgrading" from a A5 and "alternating" from your A5,
heres some examples

A5 to spyder... Alternating
A5 to DP G3 - IQ/G4 Upgrading

so... whats the difference?
if you go from a 200$ marker, to a 200$ marker you will encounter the same shortfalls. materials, plastic parts scattered here and there to keep costs down. the same inconstant valves one marker to another.

If you go from a 200$ marker to a 300 or even 400$ marker, thats when things change, you start adding more aluminum, remove plastic. get clamping feednecks. if you go up further - On/Off ASA's better regulators, more consistent valves. ect ect.
Thats upgrading.

If you find the Mini small, your will find the G4 small. both are actually very close in size.

Well, it turns out the G3 is a preproduction version, so a plus there. However, it doesn't have RAPS, so a negative.

And he's selling a 2010 SLG with a Virtue board and some other minor stuff for about the same price.. IDK what to go for now :x

I'll be test shooting them both Sunday, though.
