For the G3, I recommend the TechT Bolt Engine to lower your operating pressure which will make the gun more efficient.
Ape board for more control of the settings
Deadlywind barrel
Strengths: Very lightweight. 1.86 lbs. Accurate. Looks great. CHEAP. Easy maintenance.
Weaknesses: None.
Review: I bought this gun as a backup to my EGO SL74. Perfect gun for all around use. What I really like about the gun is how lightweight it is. Its almost as light as my EGO SL74. The polished body looks awesome. I always have people ask me what gun it is and how great it looks. Although its not as efficient as my EGO, its very consistent.

With the TechT bolt engine, you can basically say you have a tool-less free maintenance gun. With the TechT bolt engine, you can take out the bolt's back cap by hand. Lube the 3 bolt O-rings, back cap O-ring, and you're finished with maintenance on the bolt. The regulator doesn't require tools to take apart either. Just unscrew the regulator, take out the piston, lube the O-rings and you're done. All of this can be done by hand. Simple simple simple maintenance. I don't know of any other gun (besides maybe the Lux and the 09 Impulse) where you don't need tools to do maintenance on the gun.

If you don't have the TechT bolt engine, all you need to do is unscrew the backcap with an allen key. Still, very simple.

The G3 shoots straight, accurate, and feels great in my hands. Not as efficient as other guns, but for the price, its hard to beat. For $300 ($399 for the SE) brand new, you get an awesome gun right out of the box. The SE has an upgraded board, trigger and 2 piece barrel. Is it worth it to buy the SE? If you don't plan on doing anymore upgrades, yes. In my opinion, buy the regular G3, get the color you want, and do the upgrades on your own. I would buy Ape board and CP trigger, or get the 7th element board and trigger combo from ANSgear for 70 bucks. With the extra 30 you just saved, buy a cheap CP 2 piece barrel OR, use it on paint, OR use that 30 and spend an extra 40 to buy the TechT bolt engine, OR save up more money to buy a nice quality barrel kit. The 2 piece barrel from the SE is basically useless considering you can't buy backs for it.
Conclusion: My recommendation is to buy one. If you're looking for a low price gun with potential for really awesome upgrades, get the G3. Shoots fast, accurate, CONSISTENT out of the box, CHEAP, etc.
