Angel G7 Fly vs Dye DM6

I'm getting one of these guns after christmas but I want to know which one is overall better, easier to clean and maintain, and easier to adjust. ( I'm one of those people who will not stop adjusting until I'm completely satisfied with it or else I get pissed off.)

I was reading both manuals and the G7 fly looks more complicated but my friend told me matainence was easy.

The G7 does have a bit more peices to it than the DM6. Both are fast, light guns. You will most likely get more shots per fill with the FLY. The DM6 is easy to maintain, lube bolt. The G7 needs some love juice and you are set. Both are easy to maintain but I think the DM6 would be easier to fix.

Give both of them a good feel before buying, then decide.

Here is a problem for me if the a G7 Fly part breaks, will parts for a G7 work with a Fly or do I have to ship it to a store that deals with Angels?

They are both great guns, IMO the DM6 is the better deal, but you should shoot and see for yourself.

DM6. I'm personally not a big fan of Angels, but try each out for yourself before you decide on one or the other.

Is the ram located in a hard to access area? Also, does the G7 Fly come with a wall charger for the battery?

What is the size of the plug (the one that connects to the gun) for the car charger? I want to now so I can buy the proper adapter for charging inside my house. I'm looking into getting a adaptaplug sold at radioshack.

The only thing I don't like about the DM's, is that the reg is so close to the body, where the Angel you can hold onto the reg better for better support.

I having the same problem deciding wether I want to get the DM6, G7 Fly, or the 05 Speed. I think I would like the feel of the Angels better, but I don't know which one I want to get performance wise.

The two markers are so different from each other it's hard to decide. They both have thier pros and cons, which makes it even harder to pick, plus the fact that your droping over $800 on one.

What would you do in my case?

If you don't like the reg being to close to the body, and you aren't sure about angels, I'd look into the 06 cyborg. It's a really, really nice gun.

Going along with the regulator spacing, check out the 06 intimidators. I've heard very good things about them as well.

I might check out the Timmies, but I really like the look of the Angels, I mean, there not that hard to understand and maintain, there also pretty quite and fire pretty smooth right? Thats all I want in a marker, reliablility, efficent, quite, easy maintance.

How do you think the maintance is compared to the cocker in my sig?

In maintainance a Cocker is basically the hardest thing to maintain period although its still not very hard. Timmies are generally easy from what i hear.

Wrong, Evil Omen 2.0. are the hardedst to maintain. Cockers with E2's are soo easy to maintain because all you need to set is the back block whihc is about a piece of paper away, For eveything else, the E2 has factory setttings. As with the 2.0, you need to constantly adjust the reg. Its really annoying.

Yeah, I'm talking about cockers in general and no one buys Omens so who cares about them. Also the 2.0 is more than likely made a little more convenient than prior models (1.0).

Also, I own a cocker and so do you. I know what i'm talking about.
