While I have pictures of only the Fusion in this thread, the F8 is built so similarly, that nearly everything is this thread can be used for the F8 as well.

From design to conception, the Fusion Paintball Marker by Dangerous Power aims to achieve the highest level of performance at any price.
If you've tried shooting one, you will agree that this mission has been accomplished! Out of the box, the Fusion rivals the performance of other 'high-end' markers that are double or even triple the cost, leaving the competition wondering how quality can come at such affordability.

The Fusion is a Fasor marker design which basically just means that the Ram returns with a spring instead of with pneumatics/air. Similar markers designs are the Spyder and Legend markers.
Shooting out of box better than markers several times its price, the fusion needs NO upgrades, and it can work with both Low Pressure and High Pressure tanks.
**DO NOT USE CO2**
While there are so many lubes out on the market today, DP recommends the use of Dow-55 lube on the entire marker. I agree with this and you will notice that even though I have Dow-33 in the Picture of the workplace. I don't use dow33 on this marker except on the internal solenoid piston, which is my preference. Any type of lube will work, however to avoid leaks and extend life of O-rings, the use of a swelling type lube is the recommended.
What to do after each day of play?
Even though I have listed all the info in all the sections below, I'm sure there are quite a few people that are not going to want to read through the entire thing to find out what needs to be done after each day of play. So here's the skinny.
Wipe all paint off of marker. (Exterior, interior, bolt, eyes, barrel,)
Clean and relube ram assembly (See Section Below)
Every 15,000 Ė 20,000 shots clean, inspect, relube HPR and LPR. Sooner if they become inconsistent. (See Sections Below)
