The Dye DM12 does shoot really smooth and nice... Its not the most air efficent, but doesnt matter too me because I play front , But I would expect more from Dye.... I paid full price for mine, and when it doesnt get more pods then my Nt10, that kinda dissapoints me. But it looks really nice. Easy too maintain. I would recommend to front-midish players. All together shoots really nice!

The DM12 is a great shooter, smooth, it feels really good in the hands, it shoots great once you get used to its shot. It was my workhorse for almost a whole year. the only thing bad thing i can say about it is that It just is not worth the price tag. I am very pleased with mine as i paid 700 used back in 2012, I however would have been let down if i would have shelled out the then asking price of 1300.

While this gun is very smooth the biggest gripe i have is how big this gun feels in your hands, it just feels like a monster, it's way to big. And after lugging this thing around for a day you'll be noticeably fatigued

Dye Precision Dye Matrix 12 (DM12) I swear, I've owned dm5s - dm12s and they all shoot the freakin same. Unless you're a wealthy and hardcore Dye fan, do yourself a favor and just pick up an older dm for 3-400 bucks.

Dye Precision Dye Matrix 12 (DM12) We're touching perfection, since 2009, the DM series are very good out of the box, the air efficency is better year after year, accuracy and smooth fire are the principle pros for this gun.

It is an amazing gun overall. How ever it isnt reliable if you are planning to use it for CXBL, MXL, RXL, CX4, PSP, NPPL. If you want one and using it for any of those Leagues, i would suggest getting two. Or perhaps another backup gun. Its quiet, light, smooth, great efficency, and solid shooter.
