Used this for the first time a while back and was very impressed. My friend let me use his and I thought it was a very fast Gun. His was all stock, still very nice...think one of the best things about these is all that's necessary is a barrel upgrade and maybe a trigger of your choice, UL frame as well. All in all the stock trigger and barrel are still decent. This is just a trim DM5 that's a little lighter, and it's heavier than 07 and up guns but for it's time a very nice gun. Still can roll with new guns today, buddy has one and it's never broke, board is highly programmable, comfy gun that's just a little heavier than some but gets the job done. Rips right outta the box, so don't feel like you need to buy one that's extremely upped or anything I feel like the only two necessary ups to play tournis with this are barrel and trigger, but some might wanna swap out the board too that could be a reasonable up... and the UL frame is a must for tourni players today though...

Solid gun, Looks pretty good, Easy to use, and gets the job done. A+
-for those who consider picking one up today I would look for one that's got a UL frame and barrel with a nice trigger...that's it!

Pros: lighter then dm5, accurate
Cons: not that great looking
this gun is generally the exact same thing as a DM5 just with some more milling and rubber pieces put in where they milled it. as all matrixes are, the dmc was very accurate and a very smooth shooter. it also wasnt the best on air, but could do the job you needed in an xball match. if looks arnt that big of a deal for you, id say grab one of these over just the regular dm5. its less likely to scratch and a little more durable. i really never had any problems with the gun. just keep that bolt lubed!

Pros: WorkHorse!
Cons: Way to Heavy
Got this gun a few years back just for a back up gun and it has been just a workhorse. I never really had issues with it as long as I maintained it properly. As far as today's standards go this gun is on the heavy side but you have to remember it came out in 2005. But for being as old as it is this gun shoots great. I would highly recommend the UL frame to reduce the bulkyness and weight of the gun. Overall its a great gun and you can pick them up super cheap if your lucky enough to find one for sale.

Pros: Shoots great
Cons: Bulky
I just got a DMC in a trade and i must say it shoots great. I got the DMC with a Ultra lite frame so it did not feel very bulky, but i have held DM4s and DM5s and their frames are bulky. The UL Frame will drastically decrease the weight and increase the comfortability. It is a great gun and shoots ball on ball, but as of now they are not worth much because it is a 2005 marker, but its a great gun if you are on a budget.

One of the best markers I've ever shot. It's extremely smooth, quiet, and shoots ball on ball. It's a tad on the heavy side when compared to modern markers, and it can be slightly temperamental, but as far as the feel when you shoot, it's one of the best markers I've ever owned. It also can take a beating as long as you take care of it after every day of shooting (take it apart and clean / lube it). I use it as a backup for my Etek and Axe, and also will use it if I want something quiet and ninja-like. Seriously, you can barely hear the thing if you have it sweet-spotted.

I got this used as my first "high end" marker. I think it really served me well but also left me wanting. Maintenance was a real pain, granted mine was a few years old, and I was constantly needing tweeks to keep it going.

If you are making a decision to buy one of these or a new low end marker in the same range, I would go for the DMC, but I also prefer used cars

Its a dm5... with a terrible stock trigger. Easily fixed, was a good gun, nice and light, cool looking, but the idea didn't really catch on. Quality dye product though, shot great, still kinda heavy for being partially plastic.

Dye Precision Dye Matrix Composite (DMC) A great gun for the time it was released. Very accurate and reliable as long you lube the bolt regularly. Recommended upgrades would be orange bolt and a ultra light frame.

Dye Precision Dye Matrix Composite (DMC) Great gun, although it's just a sexier DM5. Same exact gun, just a little lighter.
