Review: Ok, we'll start from the top and work our way down from there.

Feedneck. DP did an amazing job on this feedneck, its ultra low-rise and clamping with a locking screw, unlike the Invert Mini feedneck that would progressively unscrew itself.

Barrel. The barrel itself is accurate enough, but very heavy. The day I got this gun I traded it out for a Proto 2-Piece. Any light barrel will do though, although this is not a pressing issue.

Bolt. This gun comes stock with an Orange Bolt. The bolt has very little recoil, although it could be replaced by a TechT L7. This is unnecessary unless you are twelve and have trouble carrying your though, as the recoil is minimal, way less than the Invert Mini or the Ion for those who know these guns.

Trigger. The trigger feels amazing to me, and my personal favorite style of trigger is a snappy, responsive trigger, not the feather light kind that most are so obsessed with. DP makes an upgrade trigger, but I seriously doubt I will buy one. There is minimal side to side play, just enough to notice it is there.

Board. The board that DP put in there is a very versatile board. It has a system of three microswitches for choosing the modes, and is very easy to get used to and change modes, unlike the Ion or the PM8. The board will allow ramping up to 25bps, and comes stock with PSP and Millenium Settings, as well as adjustable caps for the modes.

Regulator. The regulator so far has been very consistent, even while playing in sub-freezing and temperatures in the 90s. There is a +/- of about 3 or 4 and I chronographed this gun once and haven't had to do it since, it still holds steady at 290-294 every time. I've heard of people over-tightening the adjustment screw on the marcroline elbow and stripping the regulator, but this shouldn't be an issue if you have any common sense.

ASA. DP's famous flip lever ASA works like a dream. Rather than turning the side of your ASA's on/off knob, it is just a flip lever for pressurizing the gun. You can get an aftermarket on/off, but there is no point, this is a great ASA.
Conclusion: This gun was worth every penny of the $300 I spent on it, and has caused no problems so far in the six months of me using it. I definitely recommend this gun to anyone looking for their first speedball gun, to people sick of all the problems caused by the super high end guns, and want one that will shoot with the best of them without breaking out the repair kit 4 times a day. 10 out of 10 absolutely
