I bought this marker for my son after he bugged me for weeks. Turns out that I find myself using it quite often. Aside from the 20+ BPS it shoots really well. I've added a longer barrel to help with accuracy, but other than that its a pretty good "out of the box" marker.

I bought this gun lightly used from a buddy and glad I did. This gun performs well for the price. Upgraded to a clamping feedneck, j&j barrel, and a techt bolt and it shoots really well and pretty quiet with this set up. Did have a several problems with a small leak via the macro line but installed a braided line and took care of that. If someone is looking for a beginner gun this is pretty good for the price. Does not like brittle paint with stock set up I found out.

Take a trip with me if you will. To a place so often dreaded that the mere thought of it for many new players brings a dark cloud overhead. A place so filled with mis-information and confusion that players will often purchase something that will only be later put on the shelf a month or so later for something more capable. This dark, dreaded place is of course the “low end,” entry level electro pneumatic marker market.

For many players this is a place filled with utter confusion as there are so many selections from so many different manufacturers that it can be a daunting task to select something that would best suit their needs. Many of these players are new to the sport or just looking to buy their first marker with an electronic trigger and circuit board to compete with those paint slingers they see and hear at their local fields. Fear not my fellow players, to fill up the spot left open by the now defunct Smart Parts is a entry level marker you should seriously consider. Dangerous Power has stepped up to throw their hat in the entry level market with a more than capable marker that has tons upon tons of bang for your hard earned buck.

The Dangerous Power E1 is low cost (MSRP of $209.00) marker with a lot of features. Akin to the G3 and G4 markers already a big hit on the market the E1 follows suit with the utilization of the dump-valve operating system. Some would argue, the perfect design for all levels of player experience. For the price you cannot beat the quality and features included. For one Dangerous Power threw in a micro-switch board capable of firing in semi-auto and full-auto modes both capped at 25 balls per second. I personally would have liked more firing modes to include some of the more popular paintball leagues and their requirements but for the low price of this marker how can I really complain about that?

The feedneck is a push in type of feedneck, while simple to use the Dangerous Power clamping feedneck is top notch and something I would recommend to anyone as one of the first upgrades. The feedneck included is more than capable but there may be an issue with the fit of some hoppers as is usually the case with these types of loader grabbers.

The trigger frame is well sized with a HUGE trigger guard making the grip more than comfortable even for those with larger hands. A big thank you goes out to Dangerous Power for this feature. The trigger is very much like the G3 trigger and is a personal favorite of mine. The pull is short and snappy right out of the box and can be adjusted to your liking if your heart so desires. There is no separate air source adapter, this is incorporated into the trigger frame. You will either like this or not. A plus is that Dangerous Power did move the ASA back a bit to allow clearance for even the smallest regulators out on the market. This makes it really nice for larger players with longer arms as the tank is slightly moved back with this set up.

On to the preliminary testing phase of the marker. The marker choreographed at 282, 285, 280 out of the box and shot without issue in the target range. Out on the field the marker was tested in the snow, some of the worst conditions you can throw at a paintball marker, but with only a single break during the day of play in the barrel I can attest that this is a great little addition to any players gearbag. This marker is small, lightweight and ultra fast so you will be able to shoot with the best of them. And if you want a more capable board with lots more features this marker will take G3/G4 circuit boards.

Let me go over the marker features, a good little list for the average price of around $200:

Length 15.38 inches/ 390.8 MM
Height 7.58 Inches/192.5 MM
Weight 1.91 LBS/869 Grams
Operating Pressure of 200PSI at 280 FPS (feet per second)
9.5 Inch Barrel
Slide Lock Feedneck
Reinforced E1 Eye Cover
Reinforced Back Cap
Slim Profile Twist-Knob ASA
3-Point Trigger
Operating Pressure Regulator

The spoolie marker, such as this, has a huge fan base and it is with great accolades to Dangerous Power that they keep refining this platform. To lower the cost for the player while giving them needed features is something DP is known for.

Pros: Great gun, fast, On/off integrated asa
Cons: Feed neck, Original fittings, Gun cap , bps,
This is a great gun overall, When i got it out of the box it was leaking through the breach leaking through the fittings and the macro line. Although that minor problem i fixed it with a small price of 6.00 and after that there was no problem at all

Pros:
The integrated on/off ASA on this is amazing. The trigger is very nice. Shoots very well I can shoot through 2,000 balls in a day with out a single break EVEN WITH A GRAVITY HOPPER. The Full auto mode of death is very fun to use and Balls dont break with that using a gravity hopper. Great tournament gun.

Cons:
The board is okay with stock but there are only two modes which i dont like personally. 25 uncapped semi auto and full auto mode of death. Those are the only two modes. You can change it but only upgrading the board for another 55.00. The feed neck is great but not the greatest. It takes me a while to fit my Halo too on it. You can upgrade the Feed neck for 30.00The stock fittings and the stock ASA o-rings, thats the only thing i am truly upset about. Ive heard from other Dangerous power owners that they have had the same problems (G4 And FX owners) I had to replace the fittings and the o-rings on the ASA and the regulator.

If you wanted to keep this gun for a long time then i would go ahead and upgrade the gun for a total of 86.00.

But other than that this is a good starter gun for someone who is now getting started in to paintballl

I love my E1 I have had it for a bout a year now with no problems. It's equipped with an Techt L7 Bolt, Upgrade Board, and an ANS 14" 2-piece Barrel. I play against people with Minis and Egos and my gun with the upgrades can keep up pretty good. A lot of people don't like the trigger, but I think its not that bad(My opinion). The size great, It's just a bit smaller than the mini. For the price I would recommend the E1. Just be careful if you don't take good care of it you will experience problems(My friend lost his because he didn't clean it after games)

Dangerous Power E1 Had to buy a new barrel as soon as I got the gun. You get a 10 inch barrel with it.

i sold my dm8 and got a e1, all i can say is i love this thing. what do u want from a paintball gun, to shoot paint, be efficient, light and easy to use. this thing does it all, and on top of that its cheap! i dont have to worry about scratching it or breaking it like i did with all my other highend guns, so i can play better! the only nessesary thing u need new is the barrel and lets face it most people replace the barrel to thier guns anyway! this thing with a carbon fiber barrel is light as @#&%! people complain about leaks with the asa but leaks are easy fixes, just lube and new orings fix anything. i use a dye throttle 45/45 and it fits perfectly on it.
