The Dye DM Gun Case is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I got this free with my DMC, so I didn't know what was really so good about it until the day it happened.
I was walking to the table at the paintball place I go to, then all of a sudden the strap slips off my sholder and hits a rock and starts rolling downhill a little. When it hit another rock, hard, and stopped, I was scared to death that my gun would be in pieces. I opened the case and shock settled in. My gun seemed untouched. The only thing different was that the barrels were slightly moved, and there were spots of dust on the padded part.
This case saved my gun.
The padding is excellent, and unless your careless [like I was], then it'll stay snuggly on your sholder. The fact that it can hold two barrels and two guns is nice too.
If you ever get a DM gun. Get this. Hence the 'DM Gun Case'
I have the 2006 bag, which is slightly different, but not by far. First off, I have got to say that this bag is nice. At first I was very skeptical about buying one, but hey, with a DM marker, might as well put it in a Dye bag. When I took it out of the bag, item was amazing. It was nice and small. The design was superb, the feel and look was excellent. I was not disappointed at all. The base of the bag is a bit harder to absorb impact or to prevent damage to the gun if accidentally dropped. Inside the bag, you have 4 sleeves to put in a barrels (14inch longest), and also 2 compartment to put 2 markers. In my bag, I put my DM4 and my ION. It fits w/o a problem. The handle for carrying the bag is pretty nice as well. It is situated in a position where it gives the bag equal balance (not sure if anyone cares). It has a few metal straps for you to tie other things to, comes with a shoulder carrying case (I don't use), and have 2-3 compartment for tools and such (didn't use it yet).
The inside material that separates the two marker is pretty tough. This will prevent the markers from scratching each other by accident. It was a bit tight fit at first, but thats only because it was new. Now that my marker has been in the bag for a few weeks, its easy to take them out and put them back in. The compartment which separate the barrel and the gun is also sturdy enough so that the edge or tip of the barrel won't nick any part of your marker.
The zipper of the bag is very sturdy, however, it doesn't open all the way. Thus, initially, it might make taking out the marker and putting in the marker harder. But once you get use to it, it won't be much of a problem.
Pros: Price ($30), looks, toughness, durability, variety (2 guns, 4 barrels), pockets, and hooks (to tie other equipment to), and compact.
Con: Zipper could open a bit more to allow easier access to marker, different color options maybe
I totally recommend this bag if you have 1 or 2 marker that are expensive and you really want to keep it in pristine condition. It is very affordable, durable, and looks like a champ. If you have doubts, don't... just go out and buy one.
NOTE: You must be sure that your marker will fit in here. It fits stock ion, my DM4. I'm not sure if it will fit spyders. But if you're gun size is the size of DM4... it will fit and w/ some extra room to spare.

Can hold 2 guns and 2 barrels
The case is very small. So it cannot hold a tank, hopper, etc.
This gun case only works for a dm series gun. You could try jamming a diffrent kind of gun in here but it wouldnt fit right. My dm4 fits awesomly into this case. it can fit 2 guns with out getting too big and bulky. the small pouch is also nice to hold alen wrenches, spare orings and other things you may need. All it needs is a place to keep your tank and hopper.

-Don't have a DM or anything, but it fits my Ion. Only can fit up to 14in. barrel, but I don't run no bigger than 14 so it's not gonna change my view of this. Has outside compartment for parts kits. When two guns are in it, it can be kind of a tight fit.
Does its job.
