Dye Autococker Parts -HPR, feedneck, LPR and 3-way at Paintball Extravaganza



I spoke to Billy Wing and he thinks this may be the fastest switching 3-way ever in paintball. He says do to the oval hole under the barb and due to the and the thicker 3-way stem having less volume to fill, it actuates faster.

I know Shocktech and Inception have laid similar claims so we'll see when these make it to production what cocker techs think.

I believe some of these parts will come on the upcoming Freeflow Caliber, so I'm looking forward to seeing them in action.

Is one step closer to a Dye Autococker?

Glad to see Dye making stuff for cockers again, I just hope the pneumatics are better than the originals.

The 3 way could use a little aesthetic work, but if it lives up to the hype no one will care. They’ve been putting out solid HPRs all along so I’m sure this one will be no different.

Curious if the feedneck would fit all markers with a PE/Empire stub?

My main gripe about most lever style feednecks is that the lever can move up and down still when closed. I like the performance of the empire accessory feedneck, but it a bit bulky by today’s feedneck standards.

If the lever On this feedneck works the same way I may get one to replace the stock 170r feedneck.

Oooooo curious to see this regulators operating window vs Inception. Looks really nice for modern cockers or older guns. Would go great on my SFT shockers :p

I did not expect this. I don't love the aesthetics of the pneumatics, but it's always good to see more offerings and I look forward to reviews on the performance. The reg and feedneck look great.

I absolutely loved my Dye Reflex back in the day - one of the markers I wished I never got rid of. I hope Dye does well with these parts and testing the waters, and ends up with some kind of re-imagining of the reflex.

That 3-way looks suspiciously like inception's 3 way.

Dye makes great cockers. My UL was trouble free and extremely light.

Yeah, this is a QOL update that there's just no coming back from. I'll never mess with another coupler again.

Yup...same with the IVG where you can't adjust without removing the cocking rod.

Dye pneumatics have always been garbage. I won't pass judgement on these since I have not used them. I'm just happy that the autococker parts supply lives on because no matter what mech-space gun, autocockers still shoot better.

The milling on the 3-way would look a lot more finished if it actually moved in towards the centerline and forward at the front. That'd draw out the visual taper and make it look less abrupt.

Also, *sigh at the thicker stem making a perceptible difference. The benefit of the slots would be less linear throw needed for the seal to clear the port and would also be a cleaner on/off response (in theory).

I’d probably buy a new Dye Reflex AutoCocker!

They should make the first good Gas-Thru AutoCocker, especially since Dye is always about innovation.



Still wishing for the DSR2 or M4 though lol...

The hyper 3 reg is one of the best performing inline regulators made. Just no one wants to give up on the vintage regs for clear performance gains.
