I agree on the dm4, and if you read the first page it said it has 35psi lower operating pressure. but yeah, they should bring the dm4 milling back i loved it. Almost bought a dm4 instead of my dm5 but it was so tempting......... it was in feb and it was the first one my shop got in...... i gave into temptation.

It will most definately dominate, and if it doesn't the 06 Proto will. However, as it stands currently I shouldn't even be looking at them because they are way out of my budget.

positive. I asked the guys when i bought my dm5 "hey wasn't the dm4 $1500ish when it came out? if so why is the dm5 only $1400?" and they said yeah, and because dye didn't make as many improvements in the dm5 as they did from the dm3 to the dm4. so, yeah it was 1495

That is the dumbest thing i have ever read.

Dm4 was not 1500
DM5 was around 1300-1350
DM6 is around 1300-1350

When the DM4 came out at Cup, it was $1500. I saw it so I know it to be true. Shortly thereafter is when the price dropped. I got mine in like Feb/Mar and it was either 1350 or 1400.

If the retail will go down on the Dm6 in a month or two then what will the Dm5's and Dm4's and DmC's be at? Right now the DmC is still listed at 1600 retail and the Dm6 1500.

So, that'll make them 1.4lbs without reg and barrel. 1oz lighter than the 06 Protos.

I believe Egos are around 1.5lbs without reg or barrel (same as the 06 Proto). I say this because I remember someone posting pictures on the Eclipse forums a while back of a weighed Ego, showing the scale and all. It weighed in at 2.4lbs with reg and barrel. The 05 Protos came in at around 2.8lbs.

So, its like this. An 05 Proto weighs 1.9lbs without reg and barrel. The Ego is 4oz lighter than the 05 Proto with everything on it. That means that it weighs 1.5lbs with the absence of the two. The DM6 will weigh in at 1.4lbs with no reg or barrel. 1oz lighter than the Ego folks. Thats amazing!

This guy is right. When will all you guys realize that you get WAY more for your money if you buy a generation or two behind? If you buy this thing now, you'll have spent $1500 for a gun that may perform a little better than a $600 dm4. In a couple years, by the time the dm8 comes out or whatever dye desides to make, the dm6 will be around $600 dollars. I know this is common sense, but I don't understand why you'd buy the newest thing and get totally raped on price. I could maybe understand if this was a revolutionary design, but it's not. Even if it is, you'll still get more for your money buying a dm4 or Proto.

Didn't you own a Proto at one point or another? If I'm not mistaken, Clear annoed, or perhaps I have the wrong guy?
