Dye DSR Paintball Marker Features
The all-new ARC Bolt is DYE's revolutionary new engine that provides amazing functionality in a robust, dependable package.
The ARC Bolt's smooth, silent shot, higher efficacy, and gentle touch on paint is the outcome of extensive engineering.
Optimized flow paths, live independent valve controller, air distribution cut off, and almost zero shot room expansion are crucial to the ARC's atmosphere efficiency.
Two-point bolt acceleration, air spring, impact bumpers, and a 115 psi working pressure guarantee a smooth, quiet, and accurate shot that's incredibly gentle on paint.
Quick Release Bolt
Release Bolt Assembly is a strong gate system with air lock that prevents accidental spool release and securely retains the bolt in place. A simple push-button system enables the user to remove and re-setup the bolt kit in seconds.
MOS - Method Operating System
The OS provides the player unrestricted use of precision tuning and incredible functionality. Optimized programming logic makes sure response time is rapid, with a long battery life, and double player profiles for customized playing specifications.
Communication between framework and body is eased with Freewire Connector Pins, while compression pins guarantee a seamless link between internal drivers and the OS.
The Freewire Connector Pins also do away with awkward cable routing and radically improve ease of maintenance. The MOS provides really advanced performance in the palm of the hand.
5-way Control Joystick and higher contrast OLED screen offers an intuitive user-friendly interface.
The framework improves ergonomics and performance. No pipes, hoses, or complicated routing paths are found on the DSR. Radial bore sealing O-rings ensure a positive seal from ASA to the marker.
Eye Pipe Breech System
This ingenious system guards against dirt and broken paint. The durable polycarbonate pipe is cleaned by the unit’s bolt tip O-ring on every shooting cycle.
This self-cleaning system guarantees that the eyes are always tracking the breech and ball fall. DYE's proprietary Eye Pipe system also shields your DSR from harsh environments.
The extended-life Leaf Spring Ball Detents are incorporated in the Eye Pipe to stop double feeds and sliced paint in addition to eliminating the need for bulky exterior eye plates.
UltraLite 45 Frame
This frame is the culmination of high pro-player influence and innovative engineering. Designed especially for today’s dual triggers, the UL Frame's shape was built to provide the player optimal control and functionality.
Combined with the standard Sticky Grips, giving a secure grip while providing a constant, rapid trigger rate.
Patented DYE Sticky Grips
Wraparound Sticky Grip with micro-texture provides the best grip. Dual density design provides comfort and control.

contact pads. Eliminates awkward wire routing and dramatically improves
serviceability. New protected connection helps prevent water intrusion.
Low Profile Design
All-aluminum body construction with no exposed screws or eye
UL TruCam Airport
The UL TruCam is a balanced camera system with a simple turn on/off toggle lever comprising one O-ring design.
The lever design provides added protection against accidental degassing, and the sleek, compact airport is incorporated with the Hyper 6 Regulator to a simplified easy-to- support air-handling cartridge that provides extremely efficient airflow.
This barrel includes DYE's proven vent hole pattern from the trademarked Steady Port Tip. The Core controller back is completed under the most intense tolerance specifications.
The self-aligning two-part structure ensures properly based assembly involving control bore and the Steady Port Tip. This blend of precision parts provides a silent shot, superior precision, and unbeatable performance.
The Regulator provides more efficient airflow path and constant piston movement. The most recent creation of DYE's trusted line of regulators is the most dependable and constant regulator DYE has generated thus far.
Upgraded with a single coil spring and high load assembly that allows for exceptionally simple service. Integrated to the Hyper 6 is a pressure bleed-off to make sure no air is trapped at the mark when degassed.
Improvements focused on functionality, reliability, and security to ensure the ideal playing experience possible.
‘This marker brought me back to Dye; I haven’t had a Dye marker since 2007. It is outstanding. It shoots great right from the box and looks so much better in real-life.
Seriously, options that were included were great additions made by dye. Concerning the low rated inspection, the trigger frame is cut a little bit sharp. But by no means, do you ever need to worry about getting hurt.
Seeing how this is the first generation of this current market, Dye had to compete with the 160R but has a few, and I mean really just a very few things to focus on improving.
The Bolt cap wasn't anodized with the rest of the marker so it's a different color. Trigger framework is a little sharp, but not that big of a deal.
Grips around the screen aren't in line with the rest of the marker. They should clean up that regardless of whether they meant to do it or not. It gives the impression of a product that is perhaps rushed.
Additionally, the marker shouldn't begin at the price it does, but rather should be a little cheaper in order to compete with the 160R. Having said that, I picked this marker due to the purchase price decrease. And I am quite glad I did. Great effort Dye!’
‘This is a terrific marker. The shot quality is amazing: tender with a little kick, but overall quiet.
The ARC bolt is incredible; this has the best drivetrain DYE has produced & a real Contender for the best bolt vs. the gamma center (before the M3s' FL bolt).
I would say ergonomically the marker is on the smaller side, so maybe folks with larger hands may not enjoy the feel, but it’s ideal for me.
Where the manufacturer has cut a few corners on production - I can see that the trigger guard framework is a tiny bit sharp and that it hasn't been milled properly (in my opinion).
I also think the rubber could peel off a bit, which is why the OLED display is located on the frame.’
Paintball Accessories for the Dye DSR
DYE have pulled out all of the stops when it comes to crafting a brilliant paintball marker. However, when looking to getting into paintball, looking for a gun isn’t the only thing you should consider.
Below we’ve taken at look at some of these accessories and what you can expect from them.
No products found.
The paintball hopper is the 'tube' that sits on the top/side of your gun and stores the paintballs and feeds them to the marker, this is also known as a paintball loader.
No products found.
The capacity for a paintball hopper is approximately 200. Initially, you may get away with an affordable gravity fed hopper.
However, if you typically shoot plenty of paint, or purchase an electronic marker (which fires extremely quickly), then you'll require an electronic loader to be able to feed as quickly as you can fire.

Interestingly despite being called 'Paintballs', they aren't really full of any paint! They have a combination of ingredients that are easy to wash off after you are struck by them.
As a general guide, the dearer the paint is the more brittle it'll be, breaking with less pressure. To use top-grade paint, you'll need a high-end paintball gun. We also suggest trying out an assortment of paintball brands and ranges until you discover the ideal paint for your style of play.
Paintballs must be looked after properly until your next match, in order for them to work without fault. By properly taking care of your paintballs, you can make they're good and ready to go whenever you need to play.

Paintball masks are an incredibly important piece of apparel and should always be considered when looking into getting into paintball. Paintball masks are vital for making sure you are well protected during games of paintball.
All paintball masks come in a single universal size with straps to adjust the match, though some do provide greater protection, protection, and vision than others.
Various brands and models of paintball mask will feel different to each person, so it is a good idea to try some on prior to buying, to find out which one you prefer.
What fits one individual well may not match another person and a badly fitted goggle can cause even the most expensive models to steam - look out for models with thermal lenses, these are double paned and therefore are those less likely to steam up.
