Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
'02 Angel LCD - really heavy, but the same sweet 'lectro feeling
'06 Invert Mini - similar weight, decent triggler, a little awkward to hold/shoot
ReTro Automag - it's similarly shaped (rather gunlike)
Marker Setup: Stock G3, 1st Gen board, barrel, & trigger, V35 Halo, 3A 68/3k w/ Micro Max-Flow

Recommended
Upgrades:
I plan on getting the APE board and an upgraded trigger (I think both come stock now). Also, probably a barrel kit and the TechT L7 bolt
Strengths: -Size
-weight
-almost idiot proof
-stock barrel
Weaknesses: -Trigger is a little sloppy and feels weird
Review: First of all, I did replace the RAPS ASA with a Micro Max-flow. I like the way the gun feels with it all together that way. Just personal preference.
I absolutely love the way this thing feels and shoots. I have the old-style DIP switch board set on 25 BPS and I can rip it quite nicely even with the 1st-gen trigger. That said, the triggle isn't terrible. The gun is very light and snaps very well. Compared to the Mini the weight is about the same, but the feel is SO much better. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed by Mini when I had it, but I feel a lot better about selling it to buy school books!
More on the G3. I bought the black/silver model, but DP now sells special edition models with nifty colors and the upgraded stuff, and that's just lovely.
Dangerous Power has really made an impression on me with this gun. I've researched their previous offerings and have yet to find one that seems to be of any less quality than this one. It's beautiful and fits together very very nicely. Even the stock barrel is great! I have even used it on my Automag and it is quite accurate.
Conclusion: For the low price of whatever they're going for thesedays, you cannot go wrong with a G3. Light, easy to use, tasty.

btw, the upgraded trigger and DP upgrade board only come stock in the special edition. Actually, I'm not sure about the trigger but the SE looks legit
