I really do love this marker. I almost switched to DM when the DM5 was out but went elsewhere and then took a hiatus from pb. But being my first DM marker i've had a very good experience with it. The appearance and grips are my favorite things about this marker. I've owned other high ends and never understood how grips could be so uncomfortable on some of them. The performance of this marker is great except i would recommend changing to better o-rings. The stock o-rings didnt seem to function as well as the others i put on. Maybe the issues i had with the o-rings in the beginning was just mine but once changed the gun performed magnificently. I bought mine new but for a bit less than retail and compared to other high ends i think it was a good value for the product. Bolt is the easiest ive had to deal with and its a spoolie which is my personal pref.

Great gun for the price, the more DMs that come out the cheaper this one gets.

Shoots consistent and fast, Looks great, not hard to do maintainence on. Changing the 015 bolt sail oring will cure most issues that pop up. They only do so every 5/6 cases or so.

The only real upgrade you can get is the billy wing bolt. it's worth it if you can find one, lowers cycle pressure and ups shots per fill.

Pull.the battery when you are done playing or it will be dead by next week. Make sure it stays lubed up and it will treat you right.

The Dm12is amazing in my eyes. People complain its not small enough, but you must remember its one of the few spool valves to use a low pressure regulator which lets you fine tune this marker so well. The new looks in my opinion looks the best out of previous models and the new grips and reg grips make it so comfy in the hands! Along with being air efficient it just shoots great

I'm new to the DM line of markers so the DM12 is my first, and I havn't had much time using it honestly. From the bit I have used it I've been very pleased with how it performs. I was iffy purchasing this at first as I'm used to PE markers. But the plan is to use the DM12 for the whole 2014 season and then make a more elaborate review and decision on my next marker purchase. More to follow.

My wife bought this marker for me on our honeymoon. (Yes she is awesome).
I have not owned a high end marker since the Angel Speed Demon came out, as I have recently gotten back into the sport. WOW technology has come a long way. The ball goes where you want it to every time, I have run graffiti, resurrection, evil, marbles, you name it. I have broken a ball once! The feel and comfort of this marker in your hands is second to none. Using the software is easy and well explained in the color user manual.
Cons,
This marker is not as forgiving as some high end (EGO) and almost all lower end markers where at the end of the day, it can be covered in paint you can through it in a gear bag and forget about it until the next time you are at the field. This marker should be somewhat broken down after each use and cleaned. You take good care of this marker and it will take good care of you. I suggest having a eye pipe replacement in your spare parts box in your gear bag at the field as well. The plastic is quite brittle and cold temps can encourage a crack.
Pros,
Put three cases through this marker and the inline reg is broken in. I have a -+ diff of about six FPS. The pneumatic's in the marker unparalleled.
