Dye DM8 Paintball Gun

If you thought that the Dye DM7 was the best gun out there and that whatever Dye do they won’t be able to upgrade it, this is the time to tell you that you thought wrong. The new Dye gun is out and it is inheriting the name – DM8. And, yes, they’ve found a way to upgrade it. This one looks even sleeker than its predecessor and of what we hear it even performs better. It has some new stuff added up and some upgraded that bring up the quality and performance levels. Believe it or not the gun is faster, lighter and even better looking than the DM7. It’s also more accurate and air efficient. As to the maintenance part – it’s more like a kid’s game. See for yourself…read the features:
•    Ultralight Barrel – Accuracy at its finest, the standard Ultralite 14 inch barrel.
•    ON/OFF – The DM8’s integrated on/off air supply allows you to de-gas your marker at any time. Also includes the Airport On/Off that is perfectly balanced for an easy twist.
•    HYPER3 – The new Hyper3 regulator is a smaller diameter with higher flow. This new design is more consistent and more precisely adjustable. The new Hyper3 also features an ergonomic Sticky Grip Sleeve providing a more comfortable, textured fore grip.
•    LOW PRESSURE – The low 145 psi operating pressure provides smooth operating performance with less shot bounce.
•    NO EYEPLATES – The DM8 features an all new internal patent-pending Eye Pipe anti-chop sensing system that is self cleaning, providing trouble free high rate of fire. Also, the ball detents have been upgraded to a new magnetic system that is softer on paint. This new design has allowed us to eliminate the need for eyeplates.
•    UL GRIP FRAME – The DM8 is the proud owner of the world’s lightest, most compact and comfortable 45 grip frame available. The patent pending hour-glass design allows for a sleeker profile, while heads-up display lights alert you to the status of your gun, without having to take your eyes off the game.
•    LEGAL SOFTWARE – PSP and NPPL tournament legal software.
•    ROLLER BEARING TRIGGER – Completely adjustable trigger design allows you to customize your trigger position and refraction point. Trigger roller bearing inserts give the trigger stability and a smooth swing return.
•    ULTRALITE – The weight of the DM8 has been reduced by 1.5 ounces.
•    ULTRALITE STICKY3 GRIP – Ultralite Sticky3 grip is standard and provides an anatomically correct fit to your hand. It is co-molded with a tacky rubber grip and hard plastic under-frame. The all new Hyper3 also features the same tacky rubber.
•    LED CONTROL – High intensity LED provides identification to program functions. The DM8 has an all new heads-up display light which alerts you to the status of your gun, while still being able to focus on the game.
•    METAL POWER BUTTONS – Our metal/rubber button pad features large buttons that can easily be used while wearing gloves. Stainless steel buttons are guaranteed not to fail.
•    IMPROVED FUSE BOLT – The improved removable one-piece Fuse bolt system operates at 145psi, has greater air flow and is more efficient. We have also improved the bumper system used in the Fuse bolt, offering greater reliability.
•    INTERNAL LPR – The modular internal LPR is even smaller and provides more efficient shot consistency and quality.
•    CAM LOCK FEED NECK – Low profile locking feed port with adjustable cam lock neck allows you to use your choice of hopper and secure it firmly to the DM8.
It takes a while to read them all, but it’s actually pretty cool find out what they’ve changed and upgraded. And if you have the cash to spend on it, this is the gun you wanna buy. You have to mind that new hyper3 regulator they’ve added up, though.  It may take some time to get used to, so do some practice at home just to be able to feel the gun, before going out paintballing. I haven’t heard of any other problems the gun is causing and I assume there aren’t many. It won’t be exaggerated to say that right now this is probably the best gun out there. There are also plenty of colors available – Dust Black, Dust Red, Dust Blue, Dust Black to Red Fade, Dust Black to Cobalt Fade, Dust Olive, Dust Clear and Dust Black to Blue Fade – all of them beautifully looking. But they do come at a price – $1399.95. Quite a sum, but definitely worthy. If you can’t afford it though the DM7 is a pretty good substitute. And now that the new DM8 version is out the DM7’s price has fallen to the more affordable $899.99. We’re gonna wait and see what Dye are gonna come up with next time. To top the DM8 is pretty challenging thing to do, so it’s gonna be interesting.
