My New Baby

I sold my DM9 a while back and have now, finally, bought a new marker. I just bought her today on the evil place for $650 and I thought I'd show off my new purchase.

My 2012 G6R:

not a bad price at all. your'e going to love it. I loved mine so much that I bought a second one.

read the manual. use the proper lube and tank regulator, and it will treat you right.

and buy a pressure tester! (or learn the lurker sweet spot method)

Are there any worthwhile upgrades for a G6R that I should consider purchasing?

Low Pressure poppet if you want, that's really the only meaningful upgrade for the performance (smoother and quieter, but less efficient).

arguably (i don't agree with it) a hush bolt. zero ping rammer is a gimmick where i've never noticed a difference

some people have great success with the hush bolt, but I didn't noticee a change in mine. It all depends on your specificity marker and individual bolt

I don't know if I'll upgrade it at all. If anything I might just add an LP Poppit.

the LP makes it noticably more smooth, if you're into that. I own one with a LP and with with the stock. they both shoot great. honestly, that's all I would add. I feel like I threw away money when i bought my hush bolt

oh. the stock trigger isn't terrible but it lacks adjustments. I LOVE the violent trigger; I forgot about that. I got lucky and i bought both mine with violent triggers on them already.

What is a good barrel kit to upgrade to? I was thinking of buying a deadly winds barrel and freak inserts, is that a good option?

I've taken several core samples with mine and i'm not too scared about it anymore. I just wish i'd found a 12 inch barrel, instead of a 14 inch

Nice gun always wanted one but i never had the guts to buy it.
A guy on my team just put a deadlywind on his clone and he loves it. Personally i just got a j&j allstar or elite kit idk (its the larger of the 2) and i can get over how noce this barrel is. I am putting a j&j on my phantom asap and will hopefully get to test the ball break self cleaning. I will throw it on a ebladed autococker and turn the eyes off or a game and see if it will actually shoot through it. I will get back when i test it.

J&J makes fantastic barrels.

You can't always shoot out breaks, but after a while you will notice your paint goes mostly straight, instead of all over the place.

Well on sunday i was shooting fine but the guy with the deadlywind broke a ball in his back up(prr) with the deadlywind and the guy had to try 3 different barrel swabs/squeegees in order to clean it out.

1 was one of the ones i carry.
He used my ol faithful
A buddies tippmann squeegee
And a battle swab that looks like a squirrel
The battle swab cleaned out the excess paint
The tipmann didnt do anything
Mine got the leftover crap

I usually carry a redz battle swab with me on the field, for a quick fix; it's not meant to make things perfectly clean, but it works well enough when you're on the fly.

I've got one like this and it's the best thing anyone I know has used. I used to get compliments on it when I let people use it.

These are garbage

These are garbage

These aren't terrible, and you can wear them around your neck!

That's what I have too, absolutely fantastic. Only one I own anymore.
