Fantastic gun. Really its amazing, its incredibly fast, super quiet and really accurate. Putting a virtue board in this thing makes it incredible. The gun is great, but the only thing that sucks about it is the maintenance. Its a pain in the a!# and theirs so many o-rings to deal with. Overall, great gun

I loved my DM6. It was light, smooth and fast. I love the feel of the UL frame. Only problems I ever had with the gun were the "self cleaning" eyes which would occasionally read as an eye malfunction and the efficiency is not that great. Overall, the DM6 is a great gun.

Cons: Inefficient
The second longest marker I have ever owned. I loved it to death. The UL frame is probably the most comfortable frame ever created, although that is just my personal opinion. The marker was smooth as silk with each shot and never once had an ounce of kick. The only thing I disliked was the self cleaning eye system as it often would dislodge itself and read as an eye malfunction. After I took the eye covers off and reseated the eyes the issue would go away. Just a pain to do at the field. I rocked it bone stock for the majority, but did try several upgrades. I simply found the gun required nothing special in order to shoot perfectly. The Orange Bolt was a waste, Tadao wasnt my slice of cake, and an aftermarket trigger just wasnt justified seeing how much I liked the stock trigger. I just grew tired of the maintenance.

I bought my DM6 used from a PBN member, and while its nose was a little beat up from a drop he didn't tell me about, it's still my favorite marker I've ever owned - and that's coming from someone who kept his DM4 for over two and a half years from brand-new!

Let's go over the marker:

In my opinion, you really can't beat Dye's milling. While it's plain and simple, it looks sleek and sexy. The UL frame contours smoothly into the body and the weight feels just right.

Performance is just spot-on. As long as you learn how to maintain it and look after it. Case point; I just played with my DM6 three days ago after it had been sat without a single shot through it for over six months. I changed the battery, relubed the bolt quickly (once you learn how, you can do it in under two minutes) and aired her up - +/- 2fps at the chrono.

They are extremely easy to maintain. Just relube your bolt after every day of play and you'll probably have to replace only one or two o-rings a season! Relube your LPR once every two or three months and you're good to go.

Stick with thinner lubes with them - Hater sauce or a comparable lube is great.

They have a ton of upgrade options. Grab a Tadao universal UL board or their new OLED board, a CP plug (so you can get rid of that annoying on/off) and a DM7 clamping feedneck and you're set for the life of the marker!

For the 3 weeks I had my dm6 it was a very nice,accurate,smoothe,gun Te nly problem I had that it wasn't that reliable. So unreliable that I only got to shoot it 3 times. There was always leaks, sent it back to dye to get tech'd, came back in and shot it and it shot wonderful. I didn't mess with anything/didnt even lube it. The next day I brought it to the field and there was a big *** leak. Couldn't fix it. I ended up selling the gun. I do not know if these problems were from the previous owner, or just the gun. I'm sure that if you take very good care of this thing though it will last you a long time and you will enjoy having this gun

This gun is very accurate and moderately fast. The eyes are horrible and the LPR knob will give you trouble time to time. When the marker first came out there was many user errors, so if you are buying used just factor into the price that the noid is probably bad or blown to a degree.

Good gun, but not for a beginner.
