I bought this gun online at actionvillage, and it came to me in egg carton padding, and the gun also came with a busted reg. after i fixed that up i put together the air system with a macroline kit and it worked like a charm. my dad and i brought it out to the beach and got carried away and short stroked it. the gx-3 is very simple to clean and it only took like 10 seconds because of its quick release bolt. the gun was very accurate but the gun didnt really like soft core paintballs. one of the things that was more difficult for me was the trigger, also the weight. i recommend a fiber wrapped tank and hinge trigger for this gun. all in all id have to say this gun is pretty damn sic and you should go buy one. trouble is they dont make em anymore, so if you find one dont wait before its gone.
The Was A Great Gun, And A Good Investment Too. It Caught Alot Of Attention At My Local Field too

Well When I Got The Gun It Came In Very Nice Packaging With The Reg and Gun Seperate. Later That Day I Put The Macroline Setup In Place And It Didnt Work. So I Take It To Local Proshop And They Take A Look At It. They Say The Reg Is Faulty. So I Call Up Action Village (Where I Bought It From) And Tell Them Demanding For A Replacment. They Tell Me That Since I Took It Outta The Box They Can Replace It. So Now Im Pissed, How Are You Supposed To Know If Your Idem Is Faulty Or Not If It Stays In The Box And You Dont Look At It? Anyway Great Gun, Very Easy To Clean, Easy T Short Stroke When You Get Excited However
14 Inch CP Classic
Hinge or Swing Trigger
Works well with Boom Stick
Only a single trigger
Easy to short stroke
I used it almost the whole day one day and I loved it. It was a very strong gun. Very fast and accurate. When I shot with one hand I could group a 15 shots within 2 feet. I could easily tuck behind bunkers and pop out quickly because of the small size.
I say if you are looking for a final buy on a gun to settle on for a few years, go aheadand buy this gun. It should last forever. This marker iis very accurate and reliable
14inch dye boomstic
Smart parts gauge
Dead on Dropfoward
You need a barrel N2 is a must. Recommend New trigger I saving for the eblade. This has the best regulator avilable and 3 way. A Drop.
TRIGGER IS A DEFINATE!
Its g2g otherwise its pretty good stock.
Shoots Good i had it 170 fps at the field and shot strong. It shot better then my frieds WDP. I had no broken balls. Got good use of my N2 and shot hard till the little gauge was on 000. Came with dye grips and at a unbeatable price of 289. It has nice milling and good color fading. It comes good out of the box except it doesnt come with anything.You are able to change your vlocity right at the regulator wich is good for a cocker nice and easy. I cant wait to get my eblade.
Black to Red ANS Gx-3
Gx-4 Swing Trigger Frame
Stock Front Block
Stiletto Drop Forward with FBM On/Off
FBM Back Block with FBM Delrin Mercury Bolt
3a Paintball KO Barrel Kit
A good drop forward that places your HPA Tank in a comfortable positoon
A non-basic gravity feed hopper (no blow back in autocockers to agitate the paint)
It's a cocker.
It comes stock with a slide trigger, and a tad heavy- for you girlie men.
I bought my ANS Gx-3 basically stock and used. He had put 6 cases through it and basically abused the living daylights out of it.
I gassed it up and put a few paintballs through it, and it still worked perfectly (save that the 3way leaked alittle more than it should have when the trigger was fully pulled). So I replaced the trigger frame with a hinge frame from a Gx-4 a guy parted out on Ebay. I then bought a new back block and bolt from FBM, and a stileto drop forward that puts the tank in perfect snap shooting position for me.
Today was the first time i actually shot paint through it while playing. First of all, I shot the ANS regulator unsweet spotted and it had a consistancy of +- 7. Once I sweet spotted it, it was shooting at around +- 3 average. Not bad.
So to sum up, a very rugged gun, able to take abuse from a teenager and be turned around, worked on, and made into a mechanical beast shooting at a consistant 10 bps.
A great gun for anyone who wants to customize a gun without having to spend too much extra. It's already got a great regulator, so you can save 80$ or more and spend it on new internals and/or bolt.

A little heavy
This gun I bought used off of EBAY from some liar claiming the gun was New condition. I got it and shot it 5 times, the gun jammed up and the quick release bolt shot out the back of the gun, dang near taking out an eye. I was not happy, called ANS and told them the deal. They said to ship the gun back and they would fix the bolt which they were having problems with. They also said that for $25 they would Service, Tune and Time my gun. I got my gun back in less than a week from the time I shipped it to them. This gun shoots amazing now. They said the clown that had it before me replaced the orings with the wrong ones, the timing was jacked up (important with Cockers). Any Questions that I have I can call them and they will give advice over the phone. I have yet to chop a ball and as fast as you can pull the trigger it will fire. I am in the process of saving for a WORR BLADE or a ANS RACE FRAME to make this gun a GXE. This gun comes with many upgrades right out of the box, awesome, easy to adjust regulator, double trigger. I love this gun!!!!
If you want an Autococker with many upgrades right out of the box, get one of these. The upgrades for the Autococker are endless and ANS Customer Service is Awesome.
Ermm...the GX3 was just a backup gun, but I used a 12v revvy, 68/3k, and a Dye SS.
-Nice milling and fades
-Comes with all ANS aftermarket cocker upgrades
I got a GX3 as sort of a backup for my Timmy, when AVI was clearing them out for 289 instead of the usual 450. It came very well packaged, with a few spare parts and a simple but effective manual.
It's very smooth...with the slider frame I could achieve 7-8 bps, which is more than enough for anyone, and fairly impressive for a mech cocker. The pull was short and crisp, and I found it difficult to shortstroke even if I tried.
Maintenance was fairly easy; you adjust velocity via the reg mainly, and the ANS reg is pretty good. It comes timed from the factory, so for beginning palyers that's nice because they don't have to mess with timing before playing.
Of course, a revvy, HPA, and a good barrel should be the first upgrades...but other than that this is a great focker and deserves a serious look from anyone in the market for an affordable and well-performing marker.
Very nice and a steal for 289...though I daresay they'll go back up to 450.

Nice gun in all aspects
DO NOT USE Co2, new barrel
I was paintballing and i shot this gun, nice gun and all. Just, the guy who owned it used co2 on it cause his nitro broke. I told him not to but he didn't listen to me. He fried it! let tthis be a warning. But, i liked the gun a lot. I think it was overpriced though. I wouldn't get one, but if you have some extra dough get it
I give it a 9 cause it's a nice gun but there are better
stupid volumizer looking thing sucks
very pimp gun, i just got it yesterday off of a friend. I put an eblade on it, and it rips. very accurate, very consistant, very everything, as well as heavy.
there is one thing that pisses me off more than anything though, and that is the front block screw is long and looks like a volumizer. i had to take that off to put the eblade noid on, which was a pain because in order to take everything else off i had to be very careful, and i could not leave the front block on the gun or else my ram and lpr would hit the stupid thingy.
its hot, its sexxy, and you should buy it. its alot better than the wgp vf's, and less problems of what ive experienced.
