I was on the North side... and yeah it was a good ole fashion pushing in of the... well you know. It was ugly ;-)

Seriously though having hunter safety orange as your arm band vs. fern green seems a bit wonky to me! I don't think I've ever won while playing out of N base.

Also, WTG whoever lit that hut on fire with the smoke nade... I'm guessing we'll see a new regulation on smokes next year, lol all of a sudden the whole right side was really smokey... my buddy was in that hut.

The DAM was great with that IZON sight. I was really able to post up on people wherever I was grinding it out. Great defensive scenario marker and I never felt like it was bulky when I was bushwhacking. I run it bottle only, works perfectly fine with a 68 and a nice n grippy exalt cover. Very stable shooting platform.

I'll get a pic on here soon. Ran my stiff-tip all weekend but it looks awesome with a 10" tip... also my Armson 13" (nightstick heavy beast) threads in nicely and is sooo loud :-)

Just wish I had a chrono so I could tune it now that it's had some good field time.

The last St.Valentines game was worse. I believe three of the four arm colors were yellow, white, and lime green. Which all looked the same color through yellow lens masks...

I really need to get my hands on a DAM...

Our first one for stock finally came in today and its deff a lot smaller and lighter than most people were expecting it to be. The Izon sight works pretty good but I'll endup putting a 2x red dot on there for use with the FSRs. Also the super freak with apex tip looks pretty bad *** on there. The mags out of the box are a lil stiff going in but I'm sure it will get better with use. Overall I'm really freaking stoked to get my tan one when it ships...

That Dark Earth was a tempting color but I have so much gear in Olive and it looks really clean with the rest of my setup. The DyeCam model won't be around for a while it seems and I find the dyecam guns to be alot darker and more red than the dyecam playing wear.

I cant wait to get more magazines. I've got a 4x mildot scope but the rotor doesn't clear it. If I could buy a new vlocity feed cup (that isn't cut down) I bet I could run a hopper on it with the scope but I wouldn't mind running mags only and FS rounds at a scenario. If I had 4 20rnd mags and my two stock mags I'd have plenty of rounds to pour on them and the scope sights in pretty well. I might try to find lower scope rings... The ones I have are a bit tall.

A 2x red dot sounds cool, just make sure it will clear your chosen loader... I might look for a nice low magnification/short red dot. Also, I shortened the rail length and you can still install the front cap on just the one length of rail, it looks so clean. There's a crude iron sight built into the front cap and rail... You can see it even with the IZON installed. Works pretty well for a second reference and if you have the IZON sighted for a longer shot like mine is.

For me, keeping it light is important but I also plan on using FS only so having a scope on it is important, too. The one you see here is a shotgun scope 1.75-4x. Easy to use with a mask on and sighted in at 100'. Very accurate!



I'm not a fan of the look and added weight of the Tiberius ASR but I appreciate the function. This is version 2 of the ASR which shortens the rails and cuts the weight down 8 ounces from 16.



Without the ASR; lowers the profile but now I have at arch long-range shots.



I find it's more comfortable using the stock than the tank. So I plan on running a remote.





Overall, I love this gun. I come from an Ego and hand-feeding FS rounds into a Trracer so this gun is the best of both world for me. I've ordered a MoFo barrel from HammerHead. I have their Dominator barrel which I like a lot but it's too loud. I'm hoping the MoFo with the Bang Stikxx muzzle will help but I'm not sure about the deflecting sound backwards theory. It's the rifling I want to match the fins on the FS rounds. The Dominator on the Trracer w/ FS rounds worked really well.

The only problem I've had with this gun was not inserting the mags with enough force. It would miss-feed and break the top ball. Total user-error. But like I said, FS only for me.

Almost $5/12 round mag when buying FS in the 100 pack! Hahaha, that's nuts but hopefully I'll get kills with one-two shots.

So maybe I'm a little to hopeful, but could a Dye tech or someone with a 2011/2012 rail check/confirm if the bolt is the same which would mean the Billy Wing bolt would work in the DAM. I'm still having a lot of problems with first shot drop off, even when maxing out dwell. I've tried adjusting the dwell quite a bit and I've tried to lube the bolt regularly. After the first shot, it's great but when I have been waiting all game to snipe someone and I pull the trigger, I need the first shot to count.

On another note, this may save some people some headaches. I was playing on Sunday and half way thru the day my DAM started to turn itself off after a shot or two. I assumed it was the battery so I put a new one in. Next game same thing, I may get a few shots off and then it turns off. I found the screw at the back of the marker under the cap that slides on for the stock had came loose a hair which allowed the battery plug to lose contact for a second turning off the marker. I loosened the screw that holds the battery wires in place and pulled out just a little more slack so that it presses the connector better against the circuit board and made sure all screws where snugged down. It seems to be working like a champ again!

@DJmatt123

The bolt on the DAM is longer then any other bolt we make so a billywing bolt will not function in the DAM.

You shouldn't have to adjust the dwell that much to get a better response on the first shot drop off. Are you in a cold climate? You may consider a lighter weight lube for the sail and the 014 on the manifold.

I just got mine in. What a sick piece of gear - very very nice. Well done guys.

Now how do we accelerate getting a rotor based box loader, first strike drum mag, and an air in stock?

Thanks for the info Kevin! I am in California so I don't think it's the temp, I've been playing in 50-70 degree weather which shouldn't cause problems I don't believe. I have changed the sail oring so we'll see if that makes any difference this weekend. I've tried a couple lubes that work great on my DM6 and it hasn't worked yet to fix the fsdo.
