Review: When I first looked at my completely assembled GX3 I was amazed. It has some pretty sweet milling. The gun, however, after the bottom line and tank were put on was kinda heavy. When I test shot it at the store I was blown away. The trigger is very easy to get a feel of. One problem with autocockers is that you need to pull and release the trigger completely not just until it shoots like with electronic guns. It took me a few rounds to figure that one out. I could within seconds let off short strings of paint into a small cluster about the size of a Dixie Cup. I shot off 200 rnds of paint but it looked like I had shot 15. WOW. Now for the actual playing. At the start I could easily hit player who had situated themselves well past the 50. After using it for awhile I could hit hoppers that were sticking out from a bunker about 1 inch. VERY VERY Accurate. It is very reliable too. After having it for a year now I have only had to take it into a proshop once. It was only because the regulator wasn't turned up high enough. I don't know if all the GX3's come with a quick release bolt but mine did. It allows you to push the bolt in and pull it out in one simple motion. After the bolt has been removed you can see straight through the Gun. This makes field breaks easy to clean up, and matinence very simple.
Conclusion: I give this an eight out of ten because it doesn't come with a barrel and it isn't very fast. This gun is worth every penny. It is a good gun for some one who wants to play rec ball, but since it is non-electric it is not the best tounament gun. I would highly reccomend this as a first or second gun. Looks cool, performs well, and turns alot of heads, everything a marker should be.

8 out of 10
