Recommended
Upgrades:
Any quality cocker ram.. Altho i only know for sure they are interchangable on the LED
QEVs (a must!) the old ram hangs up too much.. it "drags" or is "sluggish" you can tell its the way the air is trapped in the 5way lines. Its sooooo much easier to get it up to max cycle speed (10 bps =( i know it sucks ) with the QEV and the nexus ram.

Strengths: Cheap
Weaknesses: Not exactly ready to go out of the box..
Review: Ok so i found a super deal on these on EBAY..
I figured i'd get one for my collection, i like to tinker.. i read the previous reviews and decided for the money it was worth the chance.

Ok so it arrives, i open the case, everything looks nice.
no drop or reg was included. So i had to supply my own. No problem.
I aired it up and like an auto-cocker you need to cock it before you air it up..It'll hiss down the barrel if you dont. You will need a "hollow headed" regulator or gas-thru grip on the ASA.. The bolt used to hold the ASA on will not allow a simple bottle to screw on. (i would not reccomend that anyways)
Its a software timed and actuated recock system, paired and timed with a sear-tripper type grip. Lower quality ..but not junk.
The barrel is surprisingly adequate. I dont think i would place that as one of the first upgrades (like it is with so many markers)


Its not like an eblade.
Its maxed out at 10 bps (with no instructions on how to turn it up)
The customer service for dragun is non-exsistant (you cant find any real tech support except in online forums at this time) all the phone numbers listed on Dragun's website dont work.. Their email adresses listed dont work.
Who knows if you will ever be able to get replacement parts... So in short its a gamble.



Conclusion: The Dragunfly LED is a marker made for the tinkerer.. There is alot there to satisfy the most inquisitive mind and alot there to test the patience of anyone not familiar with autococker timing.
i would only recommend this marker to anyone who is comfortable doing their own air smithing, and know atleast the basic functions of an autococker.
Out of the box the rating is lower than most.. But you can make alot more out of it with the right know-how.
Rating:
7 out of 10

everyone needs to write reviews like this one. It's actually informative and it tells you everything you need to know, not just (I like it, it's awesome, buy it). He put in all the details about customer service, upgrades, ect.

Dude, I looked at all your guns and hoppers and stuff from that link thing, and all I can say is DAMN. Your guns look awesome, and your hoppers look cool and unique. Also great review, you told the cold, hard, truth about this gun and it's features and the amount of customer service it comes with, and didn't "sugar coat it", so to speak. I've been looking for an electro autococker and i found this one on ebay for $97!!!!!!! I've never actually owned or managed any type of autococking gun EVER, but I'm always up for a challenge and look forward to customizing this one. I'm seriously gonna buy this marker RIGHT NOW.
Thanks again bro for the great review.

dude nice review. you should really get a new lpr. the stock one is complete junk. its like a tire valve thing. a new lpr on this gun is like heaven. and you also lucked out on your d-fly. mine is the shorter body and won't take a new ASA. funny how they said this gun isn't cocker compatable. the only none cocker part that will go on your style gun is a new frame and the front block i think. but on to my question, what kind of front block does your style d-fly take, i am getting that body on ebay for 100 an i wanted to do more tinkering.

Yeah, quality review man. People like you keep reviews very unbiased and dont let frustration with a gun (or lack there of in your case :) ) overflow into a review.
Thanks,

Guys, reason there is no service is because dragun is gone, the business is n longer existent.
