The Dangerous Power Threshold...

Due to the overwhelming inquiries we've gotten in the last few days regarding the Threshold, we've decided to shed some light on its development and key features.

The Dangerous Power™ THRESHOLD™ was never meant to be released to the public. Our engineers and design team had a bit of a clash when it came to the aesthetics of the new marker. Leaning towards ‘clean lines,’ where function is hailed above form, the chief engineers of the project commented that the milling was ‘too wild, and far too excessive.’ Cost was another prohibitive factor. 20 tools utilizing the latest 3D software, running 24 hours per day to produce only 7 bodies! However, after a bit of persuasion, it was agreed that the Threshold marker deserved to be noticed. The bold and aggressive milling that screams for attention hides what truly is amazing- and that’s the simplistic yet groundbreaking technology inside.

Our goal was to create a product that will be a leader in efficiency in the category of single tube markers. It had to be based on an operating system never used before—since in our opinion, the current designs are far too complex, requiring several parts and o-rings. Repair and maintenance is rather difficult, and often needs the attention of a certified ‘gun tech’ that specializes in its operation.

Enter the Threshold…

Weighing in at just 35.2oz (2.2lbs), which includes the full two piece barrel, feed neck, ASA, and battery, the Threshold consists of only 2 parts and 6 easily accessible O-rings in the entire operation. Based off of a ‘dump valve’ system and a custom, in-house designed 3-way solenoid, the Threshold boasts excellent efficiency numbers. Actual 6 month field tests resulted in efficiency figures of 1000+ shots before any noticeable drop-off from a 68cc tank, filled to 3000psi. Leave the heavy tanks at home guys!

A special patented flip lever ASA is included (RAPS), along with Dangerous Power’s newest patented feed neck, known as the ‘XTREME GRIP™.’ This ultra low rise feed neck offers even pressure 360° degrees around, which guarantees the tightest, most secure possible grip around the feed tube.

The board will enable users to choose up to 8 modes of fire, up to 25bps. For maximum consistency, solenoid dwell settings can also be adjusted via dip switches on the board.

Several colors will be available, including Dark Earth, Metallic Brown, Alien Green, Deep Ocean, and Dragon Black. Since all anodizing is also done in house, custom colors will become available, varying from batch to batch.

High costs will limit production to only 500 units. The new Dangerous Power™ Threshold™ will only be available through authorized DP dealers. Demand has already far exceeded supply.

All patents will be strictly enforced.

Sorry guys, I don't have that information at this point. I don't believe there is anything planned at the moment for a future marker based on the current technology. But again, I am not sure.

Since the Threshold will be released very shortly, most questions will be answered by then.

Thanks for all the interest!

BTW, if anyone is interested, the new grips on the Threshold will actually fit your Fusion.

What about the barrels, are they the same threading as the Fusion?

Can you say like around what color Dark Earth and Deep Ocean are? I am guessing dark earth is red with maybe brown parts? And Deep Ocean is a dark blue?
