First Tool-Less DP E1? Dangerous Power E1 Shooting Video and Mini Review

My last two markers were a Billy Wing mod Dye NT in white/champagne and a Planet Eclipse Geo 2.1, so I'm just getting back into the "lighter" side of the sport by using a mid-entry-level marker.

After years of play and owning many, many markers, I ended up choosing the DP Fusion FX as my all-around favorite for the money. After taking a break from the game for the last year (and having sold my markers) I decided to give Dangerous Power a chance to wow me with an entry level marker

Enter the E1. When I saw ANS had a sale on these fresh sealed markers for $175 shipped I decided to jump on it and play this coming weekend. 4 days later from CA to PA my new brown spoolie arrived. Since we play a mix of speedball, hyperball, and lots of woodsball I thought the brown would anti-pop.

Unboxing it looked nice. No excessive beautiful tools, spares, and carrying case that I've grown accustomed to and fond of, but very good for sub-$200.

Airing her up was sadly not an option, since I immediately found that neither of my tanks would thread in due to a mistake in the machining process on the new marker. I immediately called DP who requested pics and offered a couple of so-so options to set it right.

As a fabricator, I decided to fix it myself so I could be sure I'd have a marker for this weekend.

The pics show almost nothing awry:

Removing some material at the face of the ASA threads made installing the tank possible, so I immediately sized up some old winter paint and shot this video. My buddy Wayne shooting full auto using the E1 with my DeadlyWinds Fibur and underbored with .682 Freak insert:

Shooting video:

So far so good. Shoots true with little kick and moderate barrel rise. So far I feel like I'm shooting a more expensive marker now that I've modified the trigger:

Trigger is resized, trimmed, and all adjacent surfaces polished. Also return spring removed. She walks nicely now. The factory paint was everywhere and while functional, caused a constant sticky type feel that I've just grown out of.

I'll update this after I've actually played a few games.


First update: now with tool-less back cap!

I had some set up issues with my mill table today since I haven't used it in a while, so the finish is not perfect. The function, however, is.

Quick update:
9 months in and still performing flawlessly. Just played a 2000rd day on 6/2 without a single hiccup or broken ball. Even ran a bunch of old dimpled paint through it and still no breaks. The E1 is gentle and fast. +\-10fps with bad paint, probably better with good paint.

Wow, I hadn't seen ASA issues like tha out of the box before. Almost as bad as my buddy's old 08 Alien Indy that had an ASA rail that was cut too wide to fit any actual ASAs.

Nice job so far though! Can't wait to see if you make any other mods for it.

Finally put a case through her last weekend at Ambush. Performed flawlessly. Kept a steady 12 ish bps on semi all day with no problem thanks to the polished trigger.

Couldn't be happier for the money.
