ive had 2 dm5s over the year and both of them were great guns. i never had any big problems with any of them, the reason i rated reliability only a 3 is because you do have to make sure to keep up on maintenance. as long as your bolt is lubed and the pressures are correct, you wont have any issues. the great thing about the dm series is if you know how to work on one of them, you can pretty much work on all of them. you can expect a quiet, quick shooting, flat trajectory gun with the dm5. as all spool valve guns are, this isnt the best gun on air. if your going to play a scenario game and going to be out on the field for some time, it will be a stretch and a big tank. but playing xball or 7 man you should be fine. you can find these for around 200-300 now and its definitely worth a buy if your in that price range

Pros: nice milling, smooth shots
Cons: air efficiency is so-so
i owned 5 or 6 dm5's over the years. starting with the original dm5. my favorite all time is the shocktech version. nice milling. much lighter than stock dm5. smooth lines. combined with an ultralight frame, you have a dm5 that is almost equilvalent in weight to a dm6.

the shocktech dm5 also eliminated the front on/off from the marker. saving a little weight, and making the marker alot cleaner.
the dm5 is simple to maintain (no eyepipes). once you learn how to disassemble the fuse bolt, and apply lube, it will take less than 1 minute to get ready for a day of play.
solving leaks is tedious, but once you discover what orings can cause which leaks, its just a matter of replacing a oring and relubing.

my ST always gets comments at the field, and i would still shoot one today in the CFOA.

Bought a black black dm5 way back in 2007. I bought an UL frame for it and a Tadao m7 board for it. Wow, she ripped. I just sold her recently and it was tough to let her go. One of the most reliable spoolies, especially for her age.

One thing of note, the solenoid wires can be easily ripped out, so proceed with caution when stripping the gun!

I've owned my black/yellow dm5 since 2007. Bought off a team mate for a good price. This gun has always been top notch. Its smooth running and reliable. I have never had an issue with the gun. The eyes work great, the efficiency is top notch. I recommend the gun to anyone now a days as its affordable and runs as good a nearly decade old marker should.

Pros: what u can buy them for now and what your getting.
Cons: witha stock bolt shes a bit of a gas hog
although time is slowly passing her by the dm5 (for the $$$.. ive seen them as low a 225 250) she is still an awesome gun... for the price i would use a dm5 over any ion, older timmy or dm4 which are of about the same value now..

my pros....

shes super quiet...u can move up a snake, peg a couple heads and theyd have no idea where it came from if they didnt see u. shes cheap now.. she used to be 1300 when she came out but knock a grand off the top now and you have a stellar gun that wont leave u broke for tournaments or paint.
speaking of which i have NEVER broken a ball..ever in a dm5

my cons..

the only problems i have is that by todays standards shes a tad bit heavy and shes a gas hog....


in conclusion..

by todays standards time has passed her by.. but!...if you gave me a $300 budget and i could only get one gun... id stick with a dm5/dmc...u cant get better performance...

This was by far my favorite gun out of all the ones i've owned, i'd even shoot it over an Ego (and yes, i've shot and owned one, just not my cup of tea). My DM5 was a red/black fade with the virtue chip, CP on/off, and a hyper 3 reg. It was without a doubt the smoothest and best shooting marker i've ever shot. The only problem with this marker is the weight, but a little custom milling could help that. Highly recommended marker.

Lets start out by saying I went from an old Ion up'd with empire internals. With the bolt in the back, so an old Ion made new. And going from that into a DM5, wow. Nothing but perfect to me, Ions are great but this gun is amazing. I got a package DM5, Crossfire 70/45 stubby for 150. So far the gun is amazing, its a bit heavy compaired to the DM8/9 the 7 I cant tell much. Just nothing bad to say about this gun, only if I could get my hands on a DM9 for the price.

Great gun.
