Dye DSR Paintball Marker Gun Review And World-Class Performance

DYE’s new DSR is an incredible feat of technical engineering. Extensive market research, customer input, and DYE's enthusiasm for constantly setting the bar have lead to their newest flagship marker.

The Dye DSR is groundbreaking and features everything competitive players are searching for and much more.

DYE's dedication to craftsmanship is truly recognizable. The DSR has endless features, including sharp strong lines making the profile of the DSR body low, and all without ugly plates or screws exposed.

The DSR is a sleek, compact and effective system built to outperform and outlast the competition.

Dye DSR and World-Class Performance

Performance is at the heart of every part in the DSR. The new Hyper 6 regulator with coil spring, enhanced air dynamics, and simplified serviceability combined with DYE's new special custom solenoid breath life to the DSR and ARC Bolt.

The 3rd Generation Eye Pipe System, Quick Release Bolt, and Free Wire Connectors make support simple, while the Method Operating System and OLED screen supply intuitive operation for fine-tuning.

The Dye DSR isn't just raw muscle and performance, however. The level of comfort is top-class, with attributes including a UL Frame design, double density Sticky Grips and a micro-texture that offers amazing comfort.

The DSR’s upgraded TruCam Airport and Edge1 trigger, as well as the new DYE Barrel, providing you with complete control over the powerful new DSR.

Review I

‘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!’

Review II

‘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.

Many other items are crucial for those engaging in paintball games. These include the paintballs themselves, the hoppers, paintball masks and more.

Below we’ve taken at look at some of these accessories and what you can expect from them.

Paintball Hoppers

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.

Paintballs

No products found.

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

No products found.

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.

Paintball Mask

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.

Our Thoughts on the Dye DSR

With the DSR, Dye has constructed a fantastic paintball marker. All of the features a competitive player could want have been implemented, and this latest model really does show that Dye is tuned into what their customers really want.

Thinking of making the jump to the Dye DSR? GO ahead – you won’t regret it!
