Dye is proud to introduce the DM13, the newest and most advanced member of our original series of markers of the famed DM line. This is the marker that has guided the Ironmen and Damage to numerous titles, and has been the backbone of Dye’s product line for almost a decade. The DM is the most reliable, well established, longest-running marker in Dye’s history. It also has the capability to shoot the most fragile tournament-grade paint on the market, and carries a tradition of being among the smoothest, quietest, and most accurate paintball marker in the world. We’ve made the DM13 with a combination of tried and true technology, innovative new features that truly make this marker The Choice of Champions. The Dm13 is also available in a wide variety of other colors and PGA patterns. The DM13 weighs in at 2.24 lbs.
The quick release bolt system is a feature on the DM13 that incorporates magnets within the back cap. These magnets allow for the back cap to extend and give you enough surface area to grip the bolt and unscrew it by hand. This makes maintenance easier than ever before.
The DM13 utilizes DYE’s patented closed spool valve design. DYE’s one-piece Fuse bolt system operates at an extremely low 145psi. This low operating pressure produces a smooth bolt cycle, minimal recoil, and extreme accuracy.
The Eye Pipe, patent pending, internal design houses multiple critical systems that ensure worry free performance. The polycarbonate pipe shields the self-cleaning anti-chop eye system from dirt and broken paint ensuring the eyes are always monitoring the breech and ball drop. The seamless pipe is wiped clean by the bolt tip o-ring on every cycle. The Eye Pipe system eliminates miss feeds and double feeding. In addition it eliminates external eye plates and the potential of stripped or corroded plate mounting screws.
Introduced in 2010 the UL airport has dramatic curves and an aggressive look. It is designed to be as small and light as possible. The UL airport is a balanced cam lever system with an easy turn on/off toggle. When the knob is in the locked on position, air is delivered to the marker through the linear front port for maximum comfort and a streamlined design. When released trapped air is vented allowing easy removal of tanks, reducing wear on regulator threads and o-rings.
The adjustable cam lock lever allows you to securely lock you Rotor™ onto your gun without tools. DYE’s cam lock feed neck sits low and tight on the marker making sure your Rotor™ stays low profile with the rest of your gear.
The Tool-less full, wraparound Sticky Grip allows for easy access to the battery and circuit board for programming without using tools. The front body contact pad allows for maximum comfort and stability.
The Reach Trigger is the next evolutionary step in individually customized ergonomic comfort, as well as optimal trigger speed. With the Reach Trigger it is possible to adjust the angle and reach of your trigger externally. The new angle adjustment combined with the Travel and Spring Tension allows you to create a personalized fit to reach your ultimate shooting capabilities.
The proven Hyper3 regulator design has been greatly improved. This design is sleeker, smaller, more consistent and offers precise increments of air pressure adjustment. Our new shim stack is more responsive and reacts quicker to pressure changes allowing better flow and a faster response. The size has been dramatically reduced allowing us to incorporate the soft rubber of our proven Sticky Grips. In addition, the Hyper3 air input swivel ring allows it to work with all bottom line configurations..
The UL 45 frame is the culmination of top pro player influence and progressive engineering. The hour-glass UL frame was ergonomically designed to give the player complete control of the marker. It also allows players to quickly and effortlessly pull the trigger. An integrated heads up display LED light alerts you to the status of your marker without taking your eyes off the game.
The DM13 is the only spool valve marker in production that utilizes the advantages of a Low Pressure Regulator. The LPR is a critical component that gives the DM13 it’s ultra smooth and quiet function that has made the DM series markers famous. The LPR provides you with precise control over the DM13’s cycle speed and force at an extremely low 60-70psi, ensuring you the ability and confidence to shoot brittle paint. Refined over the last 9 years, the LPR system works perfectly with the fuse bolt system.
Color coded o-rings make it easy to quickly identify the correct replacement o-ring when performing maintenance on your marker.
Mine came with a boomstick which makes it even better. Trigger is decent. Upd it to a deuce trigger. Body is on the large side but that helps with the smoothness of the shot.

Bought this marker last friday at a local shop and had a chance to shoot about 30 pods through it on sunday. This gun is flawless. Has one of the most proven regulators on the market. Has the inline regulator which is nice to have. Tool-less grip removal is makes changing batteries and swapping out the board easy. Unfortunately the Cam-lock feed-neck has remained due to lawsuits preventing Dye from using fine tune adjustment. This "feed neck" style means that it may be difficult to find the perfect fit and tightness for certain hoppers meaning that makeshift modifications may be necessary if the perfect fit is desired.
Bolt is slightly more efficient than the Dm12, I get around 10- 10.5 pods on a tank.
Trigger is perfect and easily modified. Same field proven fuse-bolt as previous years and is among the best on the market (Can be unscrewed with allen key or by hand). If change is what you want, modifications can be made to bring the DM13 up to par with the DM14 by changing the trigger and boards. However, dye is unlikely to make unnecessary changes in future years and focus development elsewhere to the DAM, proto, reflex, etc... But I'm not disappointed because my attitude is that frivolous changes would only detract from the perfection that Dye has achieved in their Dm line.
Any questions, don't hesitate to shoot me a pm.
Wouldn't play with any other gun. Can't wait to get my hands on a 14.

trigger spring, trigger, tuning, lack of upgrades,
hey guys so i bought the dm13 from my local shop discounted to sell. that being said it was my first spool valve marker, felt great in my hands, and shot like a dream with little to no kick. unfortunately out of the box it needed to be tuned properly. inside the gripframe you need to use a dental pick to take out the spring on the trigger. i have always used really light triggers. i called my guy at dye up and asked if it was ok to take out the spring and he informed me that almost all people take the spring out. i am having a hard time finding upgrades for the marker, and i felt very uncomfortable with the stock trigger luckily i knew someone with a deuce that traded me. all in all this marker really surprised me and i am very happy with it. could not have gone wrong with the dm13 so far. oh and i have to this day never broken a ball. i have put a few cases through it already and not a single break
