People write poor reviews.

I am so tired of reading reviews from people that have no idea nor do they care to take the time to properly set up a marker! I was just reading some and see so much negativity on dp markers I have used and know are just as good if not better than dm, bl, pe, macdev and other high ends out there. I wish that there was a criteria to being able to write reviews so that people can make a educated decision on what they want rather than your typical "It didn't shoot good" or "the efficiency was poor".

Welcome to the internet my friend, where people write what they want about something they don't fully understand or they don't know how to use/maintain.

I hear what you say, being a very satisfied G5 user, it sucks that a lot of people insta-bash the DP markers.

The only thing we can do on those threads/cases is to write our experiences with the markers and hope that new players who are considering DP markers do not get dissuaded by the haters.

Now I am considering purchasing a DP G5, and a ninja compressed air tank, with an empire halo too hopper, and an hk army speed feed. Is there anything I need to know in particular?

make sure the Ninja tank is either adjustable or LP. G5 works well under 550psi. when I had my G5, it shot really well and without a hitch with 380psi tank output.

this is correct.


You should also buy some nice grease like Lurker Lube or Violent PB Jelly. Lurker lube is only $8 and it will last you a very long time.

If you have any issues, post up in a new thread and we will get you squared away.

The DP forum has to be (maybe tied with the shocker forum) one of the most helpful in terms of people actually answering questions and troubleshooting.

I agree there are a good set of tried and true pbn members that are consistently helping with any dp issues.

What would be considered a low pressure air system? After lookin at several different tanks, it's just started to get frustrating and confusing and almost overwhelming because this tank has this, these are it's specifications, this is the price of it, and this one has this, does this, and the price of it is this

Also, why is it that DP G5s need low pressure systems?

Same reason bob long guns require it. Internal air routing and the potential to blow o-rings.

As for the air system, go with a ninja tank with a pro reg. Its easy to switch them from high pressure to low pressure. And ninja makes quality products.

It's confusing at first, but here are some tips to get you started:

- Hpa carbon fiber tanks come in a variety of sizes, the most common one is 68/4500, that is 68 cubic inches of space/capacity with 4500 psi

- Hpa tanks have pressure regulator, most of them are adjustable, the pressure on normal regulators can be set between 300 and 800-850 depending on the needs of your marker.

- Using the best reg out there as an example, the Ninja reg, it works with 3 shims inside the reg itself, removing shims from the inside will lower the output air pressure of the tank. The more shims you remove, the lower the pressure.

- The G5 is recommended for low pressure, so if you have a Ninja reg, removing all 3 shims will set you at the correct pressure.

So, if you are getting a tank, first search the internet for the size you think it would be the best for you, all the different brand of bottles should basically work the same, what matters is the regulator, try to get the Ninja reg.

In regards to previous statements:

Dangerous Power makes amazing markers for the price point, problem is they release upper tier mid end markers for the price of entry level markers, which most often puts them in the hands of people who are new and don't understand the mechanics behind a marker, and furthermore don't understand how to maintain them.

They will encounter problems due to this, and then years down the line call them bad markers publicly. Then people who never shoot DP markers jump on the bandwagon and call them bad, which creates a snowball effect of people who have no idea what they're talking about popping up out of no where.

Additionally, in the beginning DP's Customer service was EXEMPLARY, then it became passable and average and everyone cried wolf. Now it's good again but people still claim it's terrible- without investigating further.

Owning and having shot several different high-end markers I still enjoy taking out my G3 and especially my Threshold (favorite marker) out for a spin and that's all that matters to me.

Good to see a powerful and intelligent DP user presence here.

Service the noid first. If it comes down to changing the noid, it will be cheap.

the noid is a easy part to service and there are many posts on how to. Here is a link to the threshold which is the same solenoid.
