E1 Mini Review....

I got my E1 today early this morning.
As i have not shot this marker yet I cant say how it feels or anything.

Overall presentation of the how it is packaged is considerably nice for a low end marker with this price tag. Has the nice box carrying case with a handle and foam that holds in it place for you.

The feel of a marker is huge for people and this one is really comfy to hold, and at the same time is super compact and small.
Regulator and trigger guard are really close.
Grips are like always and top notch like the rest they have put on other marker with an aluminum plate on the inside of them.
Trigger feels really nice I think. Quick and snappy, spring operated. It has 3 adjustments, Post travel, Pre-travel, and micro-switch activation point.

ASA is an on/off and is part of the frame, not able to be replaced.

Feed-neck is as most have guessed and has 2 o-rings in it to retain the loader, this however I think is a lot easier than how the Ion's 3 o-rings were. You can get the loader out fairly easy though it still holds it sturdy in place for play. (I switched mine out with my Threshold as i bought a new one for that)

It does come with the only 3 allen keys you need to work on it at all, it comes with a barrel condom, also more spare o-rings than i thought it would.

Compatible parts from older models are:
G3 boards with a micro-switch. red solenoid, eyes, detents (sprung kind).
Dangerous Power also has an upgrade board on their site for it. The board has all the functions of the Spec-R/G4 board..

With the great regulators that DP makes for their marker this will have great air-flow and if you notice in the pics it is the G3 regulator with a SPec-R top making it slightly shorter than some older models.
The Bolt system is identical to that of a G3 except for the fact that the back-cap is lengthened a little due to the non-milling in the back portion of the chamber.

Pics..

Packaging

please disregard the feedneck on the box.

E1


Side by side to Spec-R


Also my apologies for the bad pics guys. They are from my Cell.

so its a stupid looking g3 with lesser accessories. for the price, i think its a good deal considering the g3 was $300 new and had better milling/looks, asa, feedneck

from the looks of it, it is an on off asa

dont forget that the G3 came out 450$ at first. but noone was buying them so they lower the price to 300. but ebay was selling them for 260-280$ (this is with the G3/iQ and G3) thats why it sold out.

marcus correct me if i am wrong for what i can understand the Tech T L7 bolt engine would fit as a replacement for the stock bolt and the ape upgrade/oled board for the G3/SE/IQ would also fit.

this would be a cheap killing machine from them nice to have it as a back up on tourney's than all the $1000 dollar players would hate you than

Looks horrible but interested to see how it actually performs. Still I think DP needs to pick a better price point for this baby with the G4 being only $80 more. I cannot see why anyone would want to save $80 for this vs. getting the G4. Now if that difference was $125-$150 then you have a valid arguement.

Honestly, if APE OLED fits in this and efficiency isn't bad at all I would snag one of these.

Only reason why people thought it was made by Valken is cause Valken had it on their website. Dangerous Power seems to not publicize ANY of their stuff anymore.

that was cause propaintball got it all wrong and told everyone that valken made it.
x20dtl, yes the bolt portion of the engine will fit, but the back cap does not, its too short. ill get a pic of the back cap to show everyone why that is.

And can you confirm if a OLED board will fit in it? G4 or G3 version?

The G3 boards fit in the E1 frame fine, that is the board you would want to get if you are upgrading to an APE is the G3 version, however i do not suggest the APE replacement they made for the G3 as it has a larger capacitor and is a really tight squeeze.
Yes the APE G3 boards will fit in the E1 perfectly

This is the reason why the Bolt engine wont work.
on the left you have the Spec-R stock back cap, right E1.



This is what the stock Spec-R backcap looks like in the marker.


i know its horrid quality but its on my phone.
