DM4 VS. DM5 Comparison Chart thread
heres a little chart i found about the dm4/5/ DONT FREAKING ASK WHICH IS BETTER OR THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEM. EVER. AGAIN. thank you.

some extra info on the older gen matrices courtesy of speedy2k4...i dont know much about them so dont pm me about it.

Some basic info on the lcd/led: much larger than new models, up to 1lb heavier, more complex bolt kit not removable in one peice, regulators vary depending on model, no ultralite but matrix barrel is very usuable, private labels may have ace system, many custom versions available, new board must be purchased to upgrade electronics, trigger is internally adjustable, still has very high rof, adjustments can be made through lcd on lcd models, includes temp, rof, and other features, 170 psi operating pressures, efficiancy of 700spf led, 1200spf lcd, lcd has lcd screen, led has led, lcd comes with external lpr, same detents as dm4, removable breech, feednecks vary, less kick usually due to more weight, both have dual side air passages, the lcd only uses one and the other is left open for private label modifications such as trauma eyes or freeflow higher volume for solenoid

unless i am blind or something the proto has a one piece barrel, and just fyi its only 12 inches, not the normal 14. also for the proto board situation many places will reprogram it for ~50 bux.

TMC does musashi 3 for 50
predator is 100
and virtue is available but idk how much

dm4monkey 02-17-2005 04:01 PM

seeing how this is from the matrix center, you're probably wrong. and yes, tadao does flash boards but their point as that you cant get a chip for it like the dm4/5

Slider296 02-17-2005 10:31 PM

Steve's right. The barrel on the Proto is a 1-piece and is 12" long. Unless someone switched the barrel in the box before I picked up my Proto, TMC is incorrect.

speedy2k4 02-21-2005 05:07 PM

it's a one peice and you can have programming done but can't do it yourself like you can just pop in a new chip

speedy2k4 03-03-2005 04:25 PM

NO :pissed:

sure dude go ahead

i'd settle for a link in the ultimate sticky...though a new sticky with the title DM5/DM4/PM5 COMPARISON CHART will probably do more good.

speedy2k4 03-03-2005 05:05 PM

get a mod to get on that. you could always have the lcd included aswell.

speedy2k4 03-03-2005 05:42 PM

oh my god a smart person! don't see those too often.

Matrix Man TT 03-14-2005 12:39 PM

I know what you mean, I haven't seen a smart person in years,not even in the mirror

back to the proto barrel situation....

most places you purchase it from will sell it with the 12' proto 1-piece barrel. from TMC though, it comes with a 14' 2-piece.

also on upgrading proto boards.

musashi 3 from TMC-$50
-->if u bought ur proto from TMC -$25
(i think they sell it with the programming installed now, not sure)

which one is the best?
:laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

TehMarker 06-07-2005 01:07 PM is wrong then, I have my Proto barrel in my hands, and its definately a 12 inch 1 piece.

P8ntballa904 06-09-2005 02:20 PM

so which one is the best?

Kowz_76 06-09-2005 03:31 PM

Out of the DM4, DM5 and Proto? The DM5, but it also costs the most.
