I've watched a lot of videos on the G2 and G2C. I haven't seen anyone calling them junk. Some whine about the trigger, but I played with it and it didn't seem all that bad to me. A week from today I pick it up, been a month already. Really anxious to get my hands on it.Welcome aboard, from Las Vegas!
You're right, there are lots of haters out there.
But if you have a good G2, you'll love it.
There are a few lemons out there, but most (I estimate better than 95%) are great guns.
I have two.
