Review: This is an older gun that I picked up used on eBay. I got a very good deal on it, an Empire 10 pc barrel kit, 12v Revvy with x-board, and 72/4500 Crossfire Stubby tank. It came with an older style drop/bottle cradle (I hate those things) so I installed a CP rail and On/Off (Excellent).

The gun came with everything I needed to use it, the regulator was broken in, and it was very accurate. The timing was off when I got it, but after a minor adjustment at the local PB store it was working smoothly again.

The GX-3 is an excellent paintball gun. It is very accurate, consistant over the chronograph, and well balanced. I have chronoed it at 278 +/- 2 fps on a quality chrono.

I was previously using the 10pc Empire barrel kit that I bought with it, but once I sold my Evil Omen I switched to the Pipe Kit that was being used with it instead. The empire kit was quiet and pretty accurate, but not nearly as accurate as the Pipe Kit.

Even with lower quality paint people have commented on how accurate this gun is. I recently used it in a scenario game and with some dimpled X-Ball Broze it was accurate. I then bought a case of fresh Marbs and was VERY impressed. I was shooting darts, and picking off targets that were only slightly exposed.

***EDIT UPDATE***
I must reiterate. The GX-3 with the Evile Pipe and Marballizers is so accurate it is scary! I own the field when i have good paint in this gun!
***END EDIT UPDATE***

I like the single finger slider trigger that comes stock, the milling looks nice, and the dust anno is stylish.

My only dislike is that you cannot remove the feed neck unless you have it professionally done, and if your hopper don't fit well you outta luck.

Some people complain about the stock quick pull bolt, but I have had no problems with it. I would like to put the ANS delrin bolt upgrade on it, but I can't find one that had a dust black anno on it. No biggie though.

This is a phenomenal gun! I love it, and despite having faster and newer electropnuematic guns, I prefer to use the GX-3. The accuracy it gives allows you to keep up with the paint rain makers. Snapping out of cover and "gogging" an opponent from near maximum range when they are raining in pods of paint is what makes this gun so truly satisfying.
Conclusion: This is a great gun. I should have bought one 3 years ago instead of buying the Evil Omen I wasted my time and money with. Its getting to be an old school marker, but it will keep up with the latest technology, as I demonstrated to many people during the last few times I used it. If you can get one for a good price, don't hesitate, as its a great gun! 9.7+ rounded up to 10. Some of the best money I have spent in PB. Added to the Evil Pipe (the only other product I rated a 10) it makes eliminations almost too easy.
