Review: The GOG G1 is the relaunch of the Smart Parts SP-1.
It retails new for about $250, and the G1 with Black Heart board goes for about $300.

Comes with:
- A nice hard-case and cut foam slots for the gun and all parts.
- The gun comes with a 14" barrel
- M16 style adjustable stock
- Center set & off-set feedneck (with elbow piece)
- All the tools for the gun
- Extra o-ring kit
- A CD-ROM manual


Pros***
- This gun is pretty quiet, especially in the woods. Although, in my opinion, the noise kind of ramps up if you use 3-round-burst, or full-auto.
- This gun shoots a pretty consistent grouping, but the grouping does widen a bit if you use the burst or full-auto setting.
- The stock reg is the same one that the DXL Luxe uses.
- This sucker is light! Not a problem to carry around for a long time in the wooded terrain.
- The stock trigger is a 3-point-adjustable magnetic pull, so it is super light! It blows away the triggers on other woodsball markers.


Cons***
- This gun isn't the most air efficient. If you keep the gun in semi, it gets average efficiency. But if you venture into 3-round-burst or full-auto, efficiency goes out the window.
- The dovetail is awkwardly positioned (the tank infringes when you try to aim with the stock to your shoulder), and I'm not sure what caused it, but my stubby tank was practically CEMENTED into the dovetail! It took me and a buddy about 30 minutes to work it off! But my other tank goes on and off with no problem.
- An on/off ASA is a good idea. Despite the above dovetail experience I mentioned, this gun loses quite a bit of air when you take the tank off. So I think putting a few dollars down for an ASA is a good idea. And a better macro-line is a good idea; it comes with a nylon-wrapped line, but I personally don't care for that type of line.
- This gun doesn't have a lot of upgrades, other than different stocks & barrels. It does have a double trigger upgrade, but the stock trigger is honestly better -- the double trigger is stiff, it hangs too close to the grip frame, and it's really cheap plastic.
- Taking the breach out of this gun is a PAIN!
- And as a personal peeve, I don't care for the butt on the stock. It's really rough on your shoulder, unless you're wearing a tac vest, or a thicker jacket.
Conclusion: All in all, this gun is really nice for the money! Aside from the upgrades I recommended, this gun works really great out of the box!
The Black Heart board is one of the simpler I've worked with, and the fact that you can buy it already installed is a plus.

All in all, I'd recommend this to anyone looking to up their woodsball game.
