Review: when i forst got the package, the gun was in a very nice box with an easy to carry handle. inside the package was good foam padding for everything. it hadd slots for the barrel, wrenches, even macro line. When i picked up the gun, i noticed how light it was. it felt as light as an ego and the milling and anno was flawless.

accuracy- the stock barrel is a .690 bore which is a little big but ment it will shoot any paint out there. i shot some year old stingers that were seperating so much that you could see different shades of pink through the shell. Also, one side was softer then the other and they had dents in them. Even so, i got ball on ball accuracy with no chops and no breaks.

efficiency- this gun is amazing. i was getting 1500-1600 shots off a 68/45

tuning/maintenence- to tune the gun to peak performance is so easy. you bottom in both the reg and LPR. turn the reg out until it reads 250. then turn the lpr out till it shoots at desired fps. SO EASY!!!. the bolt is full delrin so no need to lube it. the ram only has about 2 orings i think and the LPR only has 4. to get to the ram, turn the knob in the back 1/4 turn and pull it out. my favorite thing about this gun is the ease to field strip. pull the pin up and slide the bolt out. run a squeegie through it, slide the bolt back in, push the pin back down. you are good to go. no need to unscrew the barrel. and you can do this with the gun on and aired up.

reg- since i've only shot about a case through it, i'm not sure if it's fully broken in yet so right now i'm getting +/- 8 at worst. normally it's only +/- 5

speed/stockboard- this thing is scary fast. it can keep up with anything out there. but then again, what can't nowadays. the stock board is amazing. it has PSP, NPPL, CFOA, NXL, ramping. all controled with 4 dip switched.

bad-mines had a very small leak whre the gauge connects to the ASA. i fixed it with a drop of loctite.
Conclusion: i got the fusion for 350 at and added a RAPS for 15$ this is the best bag for the buck. i love this gun so much my DM5 sits in my gear bag as a backup.
10 out of 10
