The only difference is the user. If you can afford a $1200 gun great, if not get a $400. Everything else is the same.

Before anyone says $1200 guns has LCD/OLED boards, is more efficient or has better ergonomics, consider this;
DM/NT were both $1200 gun and never came with LCD/OLED Board. You had them buy them afterward. Another example is the Bob Long Victory, $1200 gun and no LCD/OLED board.
Efficient is more based on the operation of the gun and not the price. You can get great poppits for $400(etek) and you can get ****ty efficiency out $1200 spool.
Ergonomics doesn't really matter now a days. Everyone is on ramping it doesn't take any skills to pull the trigger fast.

If you read through the pages you would see that we already spoke about and covered all of this. So not going to relist everything but basically you are incorrect. There is a definite performance difference. Whether its worth it is dependent upon the customer

Actually you know what you are right.... We need to keep encouraging new players to buy $1200 so that other players can get more free stuff or slightly used stuff at very discounted prices.

I personally never advise a $1200 marker unless the person already expresses that that's what they are in the market for.

buy 1000 gun used. use it and sell for 800
buy a 500 gun used. use it and sell for 300

still spending 200 but by the percentages, the higher end gun holds value better. spend the same, get a "nicer" gun to play with. fact is that more expensive guns hold their value more because they start out life more desirable and become attainable to most only on the used market.

is it 'worth' that much more? who knows, that's a value judgement and only the buyer can decide that, not a forum.

one caveat: you break it, you bought it.

The DM6 is much older than the Etek. It's heavier and probably less air efficient. Might be harder to find parts for it if something breaks. I think you're fine with the Etek 4, it's probably more reliable than the DM6.

DM6's are awesome guns when they're shooting well, super smooth, but if a guy is trying to get rid of an older gun, especially an early year DM where they could be temperamental, there's a good chance it's giving him problems. I'd steer clear.
