If you don't have the experience...don't do it.

But you should know that about 15-20% of the body can be milled completely. The area that the bolt occupies has a smaller bore than the rest of the body, and the Matrix LPR sheath has always been unnecessary. I'd also cut off the barrel and feedneck sheaths as well, they look ugly.

if a dm6 weighs to much then hit the gym. although it does look really nice, i would go for looks not weight if i was you.

yea dm6s are accually pretty light... It's just that dye makes a new gun every year and all they do is mill off a little and drop the operating pressure a little bit... I LOVE the way my dm6 shoots and i think if i mill it fully i might not have to get a new gun for awhile...

There is NOT a lot of weight to take off of most the new markers guys.

You want to save weight? Buy a light Hopper (Vlocity), the Gorilla Air Small reg, and a smallest tank you can, you would save more weight than spending the same on the marker.

IF you do still want to do it, Elia has done decent work on DMs and I would say he can do it for a fair price.

Ano color, I suggest something off the beaten path.

^^Wimp, I have a DM3, 5 and 6 all of which I can snap any of you from the snake or any where on the field. 6's are light, lift weights and stop being a wuss. I have seen the work from Gruntbull PB though and it's tight work. Personally I would talk to this guy..vvv
