First off overlubing is a myth. The Dm8 is an all around awsome gun, for all you proto fans out there who never owned a dm8 and are new to the game and looking for a more reliable gun than your proto, go out get yourself an "older" but one of the most realiable guns out there. I owned mine for just about 8 monthes and never had any issues.

Dye Precision Dye Matrix 8 (DM8) As with any gun, if you don't maintain it properly, it will mess up. This is especially the case with a Dye gun, but if you keep it up, it will be the nicest shooting gun you can get for the money.

I have owned 2 dm8's. Both I received broken, but I knew this already. Both had similar problems and both had to go to dye to get fixed. They seem to leak and have problems with the bolt itself.

When the gun works correctly it shoots amazing, smooth, and accurate.

Very smooth, like all dms. I have had a problem with the LPR, leaks from the rear of the grip frame. I found these to be common with dm8 in particular. Fortunately I sent the gun to Dye. For a very minimal,cost,,they repaired the issue. Dye has a lifetime fan with me.

The Dm8 is an amazing marker. Have a billy wing bolt and a tadao board and it shoots like a dream! It requires very high maintenance, but that's just because it's a spool... Definitely worth the price. I would give it a 9/10 as an overall gun, with regards to price.

I have owed a few different DM8s and I have loved them all. They have always been very reliable for me, they take care of you if you take care of them. Very smooth when tuned right and broken in. Also one of the most consistent guns you can get. Mine have always been +/-1 even with practice paint.
