So.. I bought a new G3 (never used, not really NEW). Took it out for the first time this weekend and just wanted to share my unpleasantries
First.. The tank i bought with it was out of hydro, turns out they messed up the O-ring behind the reg whenever they put that back on.. Fail for hydro-testing.
Second.. These mysterious Regulator issues on the G3 started happening (imagine that!). Turns out the Solenoid was gunked up bad inside, possibly the battery was dead (i should've changed it). Might've been triggered due to next issue.
Finally.. So after all this, shot it all day, came home to find out that the manual was wrong
After doing research i found out the shim stack diagram was incorrect. This is bad because i made mine match the diagram since i dropped them while i cleaned it after i bought it. I hope there are no long-terms effects from this.. Sounds like i should invest in a spare parts kit!
Other than that, i shot 2 balls into my barrel plug (blamed on me being a nub
) and am riddled with bruises
Not bad experience i think
Hopefully next time will be better! Certainly shoots better than the Tippy rentals! I'm thinking that in a few months i'm going to up the reg to a CP if this doesn't calm down.
