Everything You Need to Know About the Dye DSR w/ Devon Stutz
All right, Devon here from Dye Precision. I'm out in Detroit with Lone Wolf Paintball, and we're gonna go over the Dye DSR.
[Interviewer] Ooh, that's a good looking gun. What'd you gonna tell us about it?
So I just wanna break this down, kind of go over some of the little details, you know, about some things to keep an eye on if you just picked one up or if you're in the market for one. One of the really nice things about the DSR, it's a very simple gun. You've got your simple to maintenance, simple to go through and play, it's gun that you can just play with. You know, very easy to take the bolts out, leave the bolt, but there's not a whole lot of things to worry about. Within the electronics of the gun, you do have two different profiles you can save. So if you have a, if you want to have a profile for playing semi-automatic one weekend, for the next weekend you've got your turn out practice, you can have a, you know, the tournament, the NXL tournament mode on your profile too. So you can switch back and forth between those. Obviously before you play a tournament, you wanna put that tournament lock on. But it's just something that you kind a keep an eye on. It's just an added feature. Starting with the gun, I mean, you've got your on off air port here, you just screw the tank in. You've got a big knob here so that when we do activate turn the tank on, it's easy to turn, easy to twist. One thing that I do see from, you know, people that have the DSRs is when they do turn the on off knob on, they're not putting it all the way on. So if you, when you gas up the gun, if the knob doesn't pass this little nub on the air port, the air pressure will actually turn the on off, off, and it'll bleed the air and you won't be able to shoot. So when you turn it on, you've got to make sure that you go above that. That's something that I see too often than not that people just don't turn the air port on and off. And, you know, we get calls even about that at the office. And then after walking them through it's, you know, it's like, oh, I just didn't know. You know, I thought it was there. So that's something that I tend to keep an eye on.
[Interviewer] But okay, but it'll actually bleed the air?
Yeah, so when you de-gas the gun, right,
When you de-gas the gun it'll bleed off all the air from inside the bolts, inside the dump. So it doesn't leave one shot
as a safety thing. So if it does bleed out the air you're not gonna have anything in there if you try to pull that trigger.
[Interviewer] Okay. No, but that's good to know for, like you said, that it doesn't store that one shot that so many guns do.
Yeah. You really don't need to take these grips off. Inside these grips you have the circuit board. You can make any trigger adjustment settings from the outside. But if you ever did need to take the grips off to access your regulator, that would be the only time I'd really suggest having to do so. This gun operates off a nine volt battery, which the battery's stored in this front compartment here.
[Interviewer] Are the back grips, are those tool less or do you need an Allen?
So there is a set screw on each side that kind of holds it in place. So this is where your nine volt battery would go. I can, I'll take these grips off here right after this. Nine volt battery goes in front. You've got this little locking tab here, and it's got a open and lock. So that way you kind of know which one is opened or closed. I'm putting this back on. Just be, ah, I'll get this as closed there. Go all the way forward, just make sure everything's in there tight. And then you would use a coin or I'm using a part of a multi-tool here, just to turn it and it snaps in place. If you do ever want to take these grips off, their tool is style, but there is one Allen key on both sides to take off. It's just a 5/64 Allen key. And you've got two small button head screws that will come off there from the front. To take the grips off you have the front tab here. So grab this and pull this down towards the front of the gun to release the side. So see if I can do this this way. I'm sorry, can't. So you can pull, pull these grips, push down and pull toward, or pull and push down towards the bottom and it releases the front tabs. And then you slide the grips off the right left side. And then you can see your circuit board. And then the regulator, which is inside the bottom of the gun.
[Interviewer] Okay. So you adjust your pressure through the bottom of the ASA then?
Yeah, so you adjust your velocity through the bottom here. It's a 3/16 Allen key, you know, turning it in, you know, will close off the valve and reduce the PSI. Bringing it out will turn the PSI up, increase your velocity. Small adjustment's all you need. If you're making adjustments to go lower, I would say lower it, then shoot the gun a few times before you get a true reading. And then if you're gonna increase the pressure, you know, obviously, you know, bring that out. And I would just do it in small increments, just so you're not worried about putting too much pressure through the gun. Once the air, you know, goes through the regulator, goes into the bolt kit, or, into the solenoid. And the solenoid controls it before it goes into the bolt kit. And then you've got the bolt in the back of the gun. With the airline, it's very direct. So you have air going straight up this path here into the solenoid and then into the bolt. So there's really not a whole lot of area or travel room for that air has to go through, as far as volume standpoint. The bolt coming in and out, you've got this back button here and some little grooves where you can put your fingers in, so you can push the button and then use your index finger, middle finger to kind of pull it out. This is definitely not a bolt that you need to, you know, you do need to have some lube on it, but it doesn't need to have all the lube in the world. I've seen a lot of times there's more lube than it's needed and it ends up getting lube inside the fruit breech. Lube around the eye pipe, you know, causing that. The one thing that I would kind of be the most cautious about, as far as, from a maintenance standpoint or taking, okay, let me get this O-ring off here. So we got the bolt type of ring is, so with your bolt pieces, it's making sure that there's lube on this O-ring here on the edge of the bolt guide. This O-ring's always under pressure. And also you have the bolt piece that slides over it. So those are a couple of the main critical O-rings that I'd say always need to make sure you've got lubed up. Other than that, you know, taking the gun apart, you know, cleaning it off and lubing, you know, the moving O-rings right here on the outside, there's really not a whole lot else that the player's gonna have to do on a regular basis. You know, if you're going out to play, you know, I would say definitely, you know, if you're done playing I would say, pull your bolts off, clean off any, anything that's on there. And then before you go out to play, just making sure you got a little bit of lube on those O-rings there. With the DSR you do get a Dye barrel, Dye two-piece barrel. You also have, within the DSR, an eye pipe. So this is the similar to the same, This is the same eye pipe that comes in the M3+'s, it's the a Gen 4 Eye Pipe. So it's a really thick polycarbonate. You got ball detents that are independent of each other, so you can, you know, take off one and replace it. And you'll see that they're a triangle shape instead of a round shape. The whole reason for this is this helps to make sure the paintball, when it does go past the ball detent it goes through, it goes more of a straight direction instead of having any chance of, you know, rolling up or on the ball detent itself, having that flat surface. This eye pipe does work in an M3 as well as the CZR, as well as the M2's. So they're all kind of can share that same one. For the trigger, you do have some trigger adjustability. And I've got the grips off so you can easily see this. You've got a spring that actually moves the trigger, helps move the trigger forward, once it's hit the switch. You do have an adjustment screw, so you can adjust the spring tension. It's actually right there. The screw would be right here. And then on the opposite side of the gun, you've got your forward and rear travel. So if you want to, how far forward you want the trigger to go before it activates the micro switch and how far backward do you want the trigger to go after activating the micro switch. You can also adjust these while having the grips on. It just, having the grips off makes it easier to see for the video.
[Interviewer] Question about the barrel real quick.
[Interviewer] You said it's two pieces at the same UL-S as the a M3+, or?
So it is not a UL-S barrel. This is a Dye Core barrel. It's very similar to our original Ultralite barrel. It's actually got the Ultralite barrel tip. The barrel back, it's a 688 barrel back. It's just that some of the outer profile is a little bit different.
You guys got this one screwed on pretty tight too.
But the barrel that comes in the stock with all the DSRs is 688 for the bore size. And then, I think I mentioned before, is you do have the different player profiles, you know, one and two. And, you know, with the joystick on the back, it's a five direction joystick, you know, you can go up, down, left, right. So you can go through your settings. You've got the OLED screens, easy to read. So it helps tell you through, like, this is what this setting is. So you're not have to fumble through lights. You know, it makes it easier for you. You're reading what you're changing instead of having to, you know, look at a light color and go back to a manual or memorize the sequence. There are software updates that could be done. This kind of has the latest software on it. But if you ever do need to update software, there's actually a video that Tony's in, and it tells you how to do a go through and do the programming and update the software of the DSR. So you can go ahead and check that one out as well.
[Interviewer] I can't think of anything else. I mean, that's a solid gun. It's a great marker. Available at LoneWolfPaintball.com, of course. Anything else you wanna add, I can't,
You know there, I mean, there's some other features, like we've actually come out with a different bolt tip. We've had a different can as well. We've got the Flex Face bolt, which has a softer bolt tip face, to help, so if you're shooting some fragile paints. There's also the DSR Flex Flow can, which helps to change the shot signature of the gun and make the gun feel a little bit softer as well. And those are some aftermarket parts that you can, you know, pick up and purchase and add onto your DSR.
[Interviewer] Oh, real quick before you put those grips all the way back on. Where are the screws to drop the frame, if you want to, you don't have to take it off just,
[Interviewer] kind of show us where it's at.
So everything is hidden. So you have the rear frame screw if you tool the bolt out, it's in the back of the bolt there. And then the front frame screw is hidden underneath this battery cover. So you tool the battery cover off and you have your front frame screw to pull the grips there. No eye wires or anything will come back and forth, everything is encased. You have your battery, eye ware, and solenoid. They're just in a separate circuit board in the top that it plugs into. So you don't have to worry about when you do pull the frame apart, anything coming apart or breaking.
[Interviewer] Since there's no wire, does that mean we're gonna see a mec frame for this soon?
You know there could be something in the works that we could see with a mechanical frame with this gun, you know.
Only time will tell, but you know, it's definitely possible.
[Interviewer] World Cup's coming soon guys.
I have to wait and see.
