Weight, Accuracy, Speed, UL FRAME
If you dont have a job the price is a considerable chunk of change.
So lets start with out of the box. Amazing gun comes with all the things you've come to excpect from dye. Gun out of the box is amazing it will make you look twice. It has nice milling and I think the ul frame grips are nice looking with the gun. Its a very small gun and is very balanced with a 45/45 tank and a full halo. It shoots nice and smooth once you set it up. I shoot all my guns on psp mode so speed is no factor to me but it shoots the 15 very nice. The ul has performed again and again for me and this gun is no acception. Shoots nice clean ropes all the time. I haven't had a chop yet in my first 3 bags but I know others at my field have had some chopping issues with theres. Its consistent about +- 4 out of the box for the 4 balls i chronoed. Its light and you wont notice it in your hands during games. As far as efficiency goes I dont really know, I get my halo and 3 pods and thats all I shoot and I fill after every game so this dosent apply to me too much.
Im going to get virtue in the coming months so ill edit my review once i get it.
:edit: i got a little carried away and off topic with my review,sorry. =) fixed =)
Get this gun, unles your not a matrix guy. But I've shot egos of all sorts and I love my dm6 til the day the dm7 comes out ( evil grin ). Well there yah go.
And yes, there are still 1 or 2 dm6's left in stock. Get em' While there hot!

Its a great gun out of the box no need for upgrades unless you really want to upgrade it its. accurate small light and fast .it trows ropes its easy to shoot fast it really every thing you need to rip and own. its pretty air efficient i can get 7 to 9 dye lock lid pods off of a 70/45. efficient
So if you have 1350 or 1400 hundred laying around buy it and you will love it
Red to Black DM6 Black, reloader B and pure energy 45ci 4500psi low pressure
New feed neck i cant get mine to clamp on my empire reloader b
Easy to Hold
clamp feed loose on my reloader B
When igot thos gun at Pevs they brought it out and it was still in the shrink wrap. The guy behind the counter took off the wraping and oped the box up. Iwas suprised the box looked like a square. When you open it u see the gin presnted like its on a rack. The gun comes out and all the parts and barrel are behind it. It comes it a small allen wrench set, parts kit, dye slick lube,barrel condom and a dye sticker. THe gun it self is so light when you take off ur tank after playing it feels like the gun isn't in ur hand.
Th only problem that i have had was the trigger retaining screw was tooo tight and the trigger stuck but tht was easy to fix.
This is the best gun and will be until dye comes out with a new one Buy this gun!!! Now stop reading this review and go to ur local store and get one

I feel the only thing you need is a drop, unless you have very long arms, if you leave it the way it is you can't have your gun tight to your body when you are moving/walking
Speed, light, milling is sweet, great trigger,efficient
NO LCD, see conclusion...and it needs a drop more of a preference though.
I never liked the DM's before, or the protos, I mean I know there great guns but the size of the body allways bothered me. But the DM6's and the protos are slimmed down, they're pretty hot now...I think these things look like they belong in a space movie.
OK, overall I love this gun, and anthing I don't like about it is more of just a personal preference issue. So the gun is great, nice straight shot, even at far shots, my Angel's shoot more of an arche on long shots. Whoa and you want to talk fast? This thing RIPS out of the box. 30BPS if you have a hopper that can handle it..
I have 2 Angels (G7 and a 4FLY). I still favor WDP guns, I love the LCD feature. When you change settings on the DM6 it's a little of a bother. When I wanted to set the DWELL to my preference, it was a pain in the but, counting light blinks, hold the trigger 2 seconds..and so on..you get the point, My angels everthing is right there for you.
All of the modes are built into the DM6, which is great.
It's deffenitly more efficient, lighter. I havn't experiences shootdown like I heard I would, BUT, I also take the time to set the marker up, I don't just take it out of the box and play.
I did not list PRICE as a WEAKNESS...Because this is the dumbest thing to complain about. I said it on 4FLY and G7 review and I will say it again "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!"
Anyway, the gun is great, I really like it thats why I gave it a "9", I didn't give it a "10" only because of my preferences...that's it..

red black dm6, 14" stiffi, pure energy 68/45, white reloader b
bolt or other efficiancy upgrades
Everything you want in a gun and more
cleaning Eyes: worked great I used the crapiest paint I had and shot a few ropes then I broke a ball, in like 5-8 shots it was clean.
speed: right when I got it I put it in PSP and I was shooting ropes with one finger, I felt after a while that psp was to easy to get dependant on so I put it on millenium, and it is very easy to shoot fast without any firemodes on.
accuracy: at 65 feet with my stiffi I was hitting a 3in. post about 6 out of 10 shots of my ropes at 15 bps and most were ball on ball.
Kick: little to none
efficiancy: it's pretty poor like a hopper and a pod or two on a 68 4500 filled to around 3000 psi, which will get better when it gets broken in
consistancy: I havn't chrono'd it yet but it looks pretty consistant just by how tight the groupings are at lower and high rates of fire
adjustibility: it's very adjustible from the trigger to the settings, the trigger can be adjusted with ease from the right side of the gun because of the two holes in the grip to slip your allen in to adjust it. the LED is very user friendly IMO I prefer LCD, but I found suprising that how easy this LED marker was to use.
One of the greatest guns ever made imo, it's worth buying if your in the market for one.

Sexyness, weight, accuracy, quiet, new trigger frame.
I couldn't stand being at school the day my DM6 showed up knowing it was at home in a box waiting for me. I opened the box right up, grabbed my tank and about 20 paintballs. Before I do any of that, I open up the gun and change the firing mode to PSP and make the trigger really light. So I'm in my backyard and I gas it up, put the paintballs in and rip it. The 20 paintballs were gone in less than 2 seconds. I only shot at a really skinny tree with it and hit it every shot ball on ball. I went back into my house completely amazed at how well the gun works.
I like the changes Dye has made to the gun. Not only the size and milling on the outside, but to the internals. The board comes stock with three firing modes. Semi-Auto, PSP, and Millenium. Semi-Auto comes stock and it is exactly what it sounds like, one ball per trigger pull. PSP is the setting that ramps the most. It is basically three shots every trigger pull, it's capped at 15 BPS. Millenium ramps a little bit less than PSP. It has short bursts of shots every couple of seconds. I have my gun set on Millenium. PSP is too much of a paint waste for me.
Dye also made the trigger extremely easy to adjust. Just take off one side of the grip and with the turn of your allen key the trigger can be as sensitive and light as you want it.
This is by far the greatest gun I have ever seen. Unlike the DM5, it is ACTUALLY redesigned. It's fast, reliable, light, accurate and sexy. Honestly, what more could you ask of a gun?
First off, I want to say that this gun is very different from the DM5/C, and isn't just the same marker with different milling. Just so that everyone knows, the DM6 has a NEW:
-Dye Sticky grips
-Stainless Steel buttons instead of membrane pads
-And of course the light-weight milling
EVERY shot was ball on ball, I was amazed when I was shooting strings that were hitting the same spot over and over. Compared to other guns Iíve shot, the DM6 is by far the most accurate one
This is the fastest DM ever. Unlike other matrices were the gun is mechanically capped at 23 bps because of the solenoid, the DM6 is able to surpass 30bps and is only limited to the speed of your hopper.
If you've ever held an Ego, picture one but lighter. It hasnít been proven yet, but the DM6 is believe to weigh about 1.4 pounds, which, when compared to other markers, is a feather.
Just how light is it?
DM5- 1.22kg / 2.66 lbs
DMC -1.20kg / 2.65lbs
M6 - 1.07kg / 2.36lbs
DM6- 1.02kg / 2.24lbs winner at 6.7 ounces lighter than DM5
The DM6 is lighter then the DM5, DMC, Proto, Proto M6, Shocktech Shocker, Dynasty Shocker, Angel G7, Ego 05 and Ego 06. These were official weights provided by Dye themselves. Another important thing to note is that these weights include the airport and a battery, while most companies do not include these when they advertise their weights. So before you say the Ego 06 is lighter note that those weights do not included the airport or battery, whereas the DM weights do.
Drop dead sexy, plain and simple. One thing that I really like about the milling is the Dye Logo which has been milled toward the back of the gun near the LPR. When compared to the DM5ís milling, the DM6 appears to be more smooth and flowing, whereas the DM5 looked like it had a boney exoskeleton (Iíve owned a DM5 so Iím not bias, its just my opinion). Milling is of course all personal preference, but in my opinion the DM6 has some of the best milling on any marker currently out.
Dye was very smart when programming the DM6ís board. Unlike other matrices, it comes stock with 3 different firing modes: NPPL/Semi, PSP, and Millenium. Now there is no need to spend a hundred some odd dollars on a new board since Dye now gives you the ability to play in any tournament series right out of the box.
Thanks to the lower operating pressure, it offsets the weight and provides for little to no kick, which makes keeping a steady hand during high rates of fire a breeze.
Just like all matrices, the DM6 is extremely quiet
Just like all other matrices, the DM6 could improve a little bit on its efficiency. Its not bad, but I play back/mid, so I need to get as many shots as possible. With about half of my 45/45 full I was able to get 2 pods and a hopper, so with a full tank you should expect 5 pods and a hopper, which isn't bad at all for a small tank like mine.
Between the compact body and Ultralite frame, the DM6 is extremely comfortable to hold, especially with a 45ci tank
I'm glad Dye made it so that you can tighten your hopper by hand. On my DM4 I put a decent size scratch in the markers body after my hand which was holding the allen key slipped. Luckily I wonít have to worry about that anymore.
I love the Ultralite frame. Thanks to the hour-glass design it is extremely comfortable to hold in your hand. The only downside to it is that it has its own trigger design, so DM6 owners will have to wait for companies such as Custom Products to develop one for it.
This was something I'm glad Dye improved upon. Now the trigger is less like a double finger trigger and now more like a blade style. Another plus is that the trigger is externally adjustable, so there is no need to constantly take your trigger frame on and off to adjust it.
It was nice to have a small parts kit, lube, barrel condom, and a full set of allen keys included with the gun.
At first I thought that the efficiency was poor, but considering I was using a 45/45 tank, I think that 5 pods and a Halo is considerably good.
Dye really outdid themselves on this one. Between its small, lightweight body to ball on ball strings of paint, the DM6 is the best matrix I've owned. I strongly recommend one, but if the price tag is too high then look into the Proto M6, which is a great gun for its price.
