Efficiency with DM's is generally pretty bad, but that's just the Achilles heal of the platform. When tuned right, DM's can be smooth and quiet as hell. Stock setting work fine but lots of folks have had much success with long dwell (30 ms) and low-LPR pressures. I've seen some unbelievably smooth and quiet DM's and PM's set up that way.

Ive never really noticed the DM's to have bad efficieny, there comparable to most other guns.
they get around 8 and 1/2 pods stock

but for smoothness and quietness, long dwell and low lpr will make that happen.
grab a bag of paint and some air and experiment, you cant really mess them up to where they dont work, and you will probobly find the settings you like, and if not you can just reset it to stock, which works great.
