I like all of the changes.
If either of you guys want to trade the black ASA/trigger/etc for silver ones (for a kind of "silver/blue surfer" look), please let me know. I'll gladly pay the shipping costs.

I just want an all-black!

Me too! Damn. Well, all I can say is this marker starts off with a .5 point deduction based on colors at release. I’ll pick up a DyeCam when it is released.

On the "Silver Night", the ASA, Feedneck cam, trigger, and barrel front is silver/clear.... looks like a dust coating instead of gloss, but I'll know exactly tomorrow afternoon.

Can the flow restriction throw off the reliability in cold weather as is the case with the IV Core or is it calibrated to pretty much work in anything? Are there any efficiency or performance trade offs that vary with the setting?

It won't differ much from the flex can, but there's one less oring on the bolt creating drag.

I decided I couldn’t wait and ordered the last Lava DSR+ that Dye had in stock!

Hopefully it will come soon, Dye usually has quick shipping. I actually like the Red too and the other color-ways are nice just didn’t want to have to wait 2 weeks lol. It’s the first new Marker I’ve ordered in a while - I usually buy used…

Wow guys... paintball dreams do come true. Dye maybe listens better then the rest. I am beyond stoked for my DSR+ to arrive. Iím actually rethinking the collection based on what Iíve seen so far. And Imped is right, go watch Billy Wingís live feed on Facebook- get all the juicy details and then some.

Normally I am asleep during the day, but I stayed up for the release. Pretty much a few minutes before noon I was on the phone with Dye, spoke with the GM ( Chris ) directly, and secured my Silver Night. Shortly afterwards I was asleep. Now I am catching up here, on Facebook, and YouTube. What about those extras thrown in?? Here are my takeaways from the release ( sorry if I donít elaborate much. Iím going off of Billyís livefeed which was very detailed ):

-the renderings looked good but the pics and videos that show the actual marker, it looks even better.

-single trigger electronic frame. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes......

-mechanical frame. XKEís idea I like. If you like the marker so much, having one setup in electro and owning a second one, but setup in mechanical, seems like the way to go. Anyways, sounds like the mechanical frame youíll be able to drop in the electronic components to setup your single trigger frame for electronic use. Huge.

-the air flow restriction feature. Hugely welcomed. Iím not sure if this was a highly requested feature but, yeah, this helps separate it from the pack. Looking forward to playing around with it and seeing which setting I prefer.

-Iím actually a fan of the new feedneck. Iíll take this over all the other ones that use the turn knob to adjust. Why? Iíve lost parts. The +ís feedneck is not as likely to fall apart. Iíll adjust it to the hopper Iím using and that should be it.

-I thought that new trigger looked like it made sense.. yes Iíll actually have to try it, but I got a good feeling about it already.

-the improved arc drive. Billy goes over the differences. Shrugs. Iím trying to grasp it. Iím sure once I shoot it Iíll understand better. Iím predicting less barrel rise. Anyone who remembers, on my old DSR Iíd use my 16Ē stainless steel Boomstick, to help calm the barrel rise.

Thereís actually quite a lot of improvements thrown into this new release ( Plus and then some for sure ). The new reinforced grips, new front grip knob, improved asa lever, added space/length...this is beyond a solid release. Big congratulations to John, Billy, and everyone else at Dye. On paper I donít see any other current mid entry option beating this.

Side Note
Great to see lurking members popping in and contributing!

I actually like the color choices. I'm a big fan of gloss ano on guns so I'm glad that is an option with these. The silver barrel tips is a little odd to me, but it's no big deal to swap it for black. Gun looks fantastic overall.

I ordered the blackout copper. Pretty stoked!

Imped asked me if it was possible to make a single trigger electronic frame, so Billy and I discussed how to make it happen for you guys. As long as the revision to the mechanical components doesn't interfere with the electronic component placement, then we should be in good shape. You will still have a mechanical safety or some other plug in the frame, but I suppose that will be ok.

The air restriction feature was us seeing a way to make the flex adjustment work better while removing an oring from the bolt. I can almost promise the port profile will be copied, because it makes a measurable difference. I suppose some people aren't sensitive to shot quality, but the feedback we've received so far is that people cannot believe that the changes we made have such a big impact.

In the past Iíve talked to Billy about making a limited run of a single trigger frame. He thought about it but later suggested trying to hit up a machinist to produce a one off. Actually a few of us here have been wishlisting for a single trigger frame for a while. To see one essentially on the way, thatís freakin awesome. Dye has taking ďmodular platformĒ to a whole new level. And I hope many mechanical frames are sold, and I hope to see a lot of players transplanting their electronic guts into them.

...ĎScuse me for a moment while I day dream and geek out on paintball setups... My new ideal tote to the field will be an electric single trigger frame DSR+, and a second DSR+, but in mechanical mode. Honestly the single trigger electric setup sounds like the most fun to use, and probably the most versatile. Woodsball it would be amazing- quiet, smooth, efficient. Speedball Iíll take it over a double trigger setup- increased accuracy but retaining the ability to ramp... Big games it will be more comfortable overall. The mechanical DSR+ will be brought as a backup and of course to participate in mechanical only events.

Btw,

Anyone local to me, DBS Pro Shop has one DSR+ left. Think Goldie got the other one.

Trademygun will have two of each color.

Lots of sold out statuses for other online retailers. Restock is probably going to trickle in, just like everything else.

When I gave John the "list of things I'd like to see on the next DSR", it included more frame-foregrip thumb space, improved radiusing around the trigger guard, tooless battery access, and a mechanical frame if the valve could be done satisfactorily - and if it could, an even harder ask - design the frame to be compatible with the electronic components. There were probably a few other odds and ends on there, like a DSR-specific SLAP, but those were the big items.

That was a LONG time ago, and I know that last item wasn't easy to design around. Props to John, Billy and the crew for listening and applying feedback to their products.

You know what wasn't on that list? Gloss finishes and silver accents. Sorry, I had to equalize the love with a burn, as balance is necessary.
