Review: best gun ive ever shot in my year of paintball(ya i no dont be makin any comments I know its short) no problems AT ALL i also have a story of how i got to test it im at my local stor and i c it on the shelf (and the price tag ) and ask why in the world is that sooooooooo expensive and he just says i really cant explaain to u but i can let u try out the gun in the back. so i go to the back and they hav a chrono range and all that crap so i aim at a tennis ball about 30 yards away and try to shoot a rope and somhow i did and with my slow finger im amazed it was a 13 shot rope and after that i went and checked to see how many times i hit it and i see 9 fresh paintball shells on the ground so i was amazed sp i decided to put it on layaway but my first payment has to be 300$$ so ...
Conclusion: Buy it as soon as u git the money bcuz i no i am i hav pics of it posted all over my room
(and on the 9 no gun is perfect) i really rate it 9 .9 but we cant do that can we

Review: I used to own a DM4, i had one of the first dm4's 2 years ago, i had so many problems with it when it came out, that i said i would never come back to the dm family...I also felt that the body and feed neck made any hopper on a DM4 sit really tall.
Well i decided to purchase a DM6, i thought i would give it a try again. I read reviews, i was on pbnation reading all the problems and realized that the problems where minimal....and being a gun whore decided that if it didnt work i would just sell it.....
I picked up my DM6 on Friday March 3rd 2006. I opened the box, and saw one fo the most beautifuly packaged markers just laying there waiting to be picked up.....
When i got home i decided to strip it down completly, wiped the bolt, the lpr and the hyper 2 clean....then replaced all of the orings....lubed everything back up...cut my macro line.....and put it all back together....
I grabed my 72/4500 tank i had 2000 in it, put my empire b on it and stepped out the back door.....i had not adjusted the trigger yet so i knew that i wouldnt be getting a great rope going but really i wanted to feel if i did the right thing in purchasing a dm again.
Turned the air on, turned the dm on, turned the on/off......the feeling i got from the first shot was complete confidence in what i had done....in seconds my hopper was empty and another was filled.....ball on ball on ball....perfect

Move forward to Sunday March 5 2006, i had to reff a tourny this weekend, oh well, the field looked great and all i wanted to do was play some games with my new DM6.
at lunch time i played with my trigger a bit, and played with my debounce.....i dialed it in to what i hope was perfection....finally the tourney was over, and all the reffs decided to play some games on the field while all the players watch....i gassed up my dm6 loaded my hopper, put my harness on with 5 pods....in the back of my mind thinking back to my dm4 days, i felt that i wouldnt be shooting off even 3 pods....The first game was played and i started to walk back from hanging the flag to begin picking up my pods....holy crap can you say a dramatic change in efficincy...5 pods a hopper and i still had 2000 in my tank.....now i know its a 72/4500 i will look at getting a 45/4500 now....
I should mention that i had one chop, not a barrel break, i swabbed out the barrel and continued shooting after 20 balls the residue was gone from the barrel, and the balls where back on target....no problem with the eyes at all....
when i got home last night i decided to clean up my new baby. i stripped out the bolt, replaced the first oring, it seamed to be almost shredded....the removed the eye covers cleaned the detents and then removed the eyes to clean them out.....no paint at all was in the eyes....i couldnt believe it...with ever other markers that i own, paint would be oozing out of the eye cover plates if chopped....
I can see that maintaining this marker will be darn simple, i would like to say ego simple.....

Conclusion: I have to say that with all the trepedition and feers that i had going back to the DM family are gone...i think that the DM6 is one of the best markers on the market....It has a soft sound, if you like that....it has little to no kick and is as light as any marker has become....This marker is all that i expected from DYE. The manufacturer has listend to all the previous users of the dm lineup and has modified thier marker to reflect these changes....I am proud to be back in the DM family

Review: Through my omnth's of playing i've been through an entire stack of markers... after shooting a DM5 for a while i really got into the DM fad. now i shoot the DM6. the past review's show that some of the dm6's had some problems with the eyes, board settings but i think they were only in the first batch sold. when i bought mine the only poblem that i had was a broken o-ring so that wasn't a biggie. After shooting karni's and shockers, there was big difference in the feel. When i held the DM6 for the first time, the feel of the ultralite frame introduce a whole new world of paintball to me, It really felt like you were holding nothing.

After shooting the gun out the box, the settings were already perfect as it was. I was shooting into a trach can about 25 to 30 feet away and the accuracy couldn't have been any better.
Conclusion: If you haven't liked DM markers in the past, i highly recomend gettin into them now. if you're looking for a really dependable gun, get this marker.

Review: The second i recieved the gun, I aired it up, and right away it shot darts. I have owned about 2 dm6's before, and i knew which mods to do to it that would get MAXIUMUM efficiency. Did some bolt mods, lowered dwell and LPR, threw in a virtue board, and the gun has been ripping ever since.Gun doesnt go down on me ever, and its constantly getting compliments at my local fields.
Conclusion: If you are looking for a high end gun that is small, light and very fast, i would recommended the DYE dm6 for all you hardcore ballers that want to step your game up =]

Review: Okay so I go to the paintball store and ask to see the DM6 and to my suprise it was very light, compact, easy to move with, and easy to walk the trigger, so I bought it along with yellow parts kit, I wait about a week before I could get it, so the day before the tournament I try to go and dry fire it but, nothing happens so I thought I could just do it later on that night, I tried but it did not work, so the day of the tournament I take it to the airsmith to find that the trigger was behind the microswitch causing the marker not fire. So I finally get out there for the game and to my suprise it was shooting ropes easily and accurately. I shot 1 hopper and 1 pod that game and I use a 48/3000psi tank and I got about 1 hopper 3 pods off so I got some great efficiency. And dye stop cheapin' out by an optical sensor please!! And get a LCD!
Conclusion: Great product besides the microswitch problem Dye has made another great product.
I'm going to give it a 9 because of the microswitch problem that can easily be fixed but I blame dye and the paintball shop...

Review: I had my DM6 for three months... and I'm normally a fan of DYE products, but I have to say I was very dissappointed with the DM6. Let's start with the 'upgrades' already available on it. 1. Feedneck- This feedneck is a pain to adjust for both my Vlocity and my Pulse loader. I hated it.
2. ASA- Yeah, it comes with an on/off ASA. Big whup when it's such a pain to turn it on and off with gloves on... I would rather it not have come with one like the 'Timmy does so I can choose my own.
Moving on:
3. I'm only 5'9" and most would describe my frame as 'compact'. If you don't have a 45/45 tank, it gets right into your shoulder as you're trying to aim... and to remedy this you would need a drop forward... which is expensive, just like the rest of the parts for the DM6.
4. The factory settings chopped balls right out of the box, and no matter how much fine tuning I did to the marker, it still chopped balls. Didn't matter what kind I was using, but it did annoy me. Not having a quick disconnect feature to clean out the barrel and housing for the bolt made cleaning broken paint a pain in the rear.
5. The Ultralite Frame butts right up against the reg... where am I supposed to hang onto this marker? It was extremely uncomfortable to shoot once I got it on the field, not to mention the lousy stock trigger.
6. The board that comes with the DM6 is a piece of junk, I got a virtue board in the hopes that it would help hammer out some of the issues I was having. It did, but I think that having to buy a new board just adds to a growing list of complaints on a marker that was over a thousand bucks.

Positives:
1. This marker, when it worked properly, was very accurate and gave me very little kick.
2. The gas effeciency on this marker was very good, not as good as an autococker but definitely better than the intimidator I'm using now.
Conclusion: I only recommend this product if you don't mind sinking a ton of cash into a marker after spending a lot to get it. I don't know about the rest of you, but this product made me very angry with DYE and their production team.
