possibly upgrade from PM8

First this isn't a versus or anything and I'm not asking which is better, but I was just wondering if its worth to upgrade from my current pm8 to a dm12, nt11, or even a proto reflex? Is the technology better than my pm8?

Honestly the only upgrade would be the dm12, because of the lpr and fine tuning but as far as maintenance, I would stick with the pm8 if youre not having any problems with it. The nt11 and reflex shoot very similar to your pm8 (my opinion).

DM12 is mostly the same technology. Same HPR internally, and same bolt design. Just a few tweaks and such so that it runs at a bit lower pressures, new grips, new trigger, better lpr that's also easier to access.

NT11 IMO is FAR FAR FAR inferior to any DM/PM. It's simply not as smooth, and if you take the time to tune a DM/PM, not as efficient either. It's lighter, but that's all it really has for an advantage.

Rail is just an upgraded PMR with a new name. As such, it's inferior to your PM8.

Just buy a DM10 and be done with it... they are going for great prices these days and give you all the same stuff as a dm11/12. And if the nicer trigger doesnt matter then just get a dm9

Yeah, but if you're going to get a DM9, no point in getting rid of the PM8. I have both a PM8 and DM9, and they shoot identically. Other than the fact that IMO the PM8 is a billion times sexier there's not enough of a difference to mention about other than being able to replace the PM8 eyes if they go bad (I don't know of anywhere that still has PM8 eyes in stock).

If I did get a.new gun it would be brand new so I'm not to excited about anything. Except the new dm /NT/reflex.

A PM is a billion times sexier than a DM!?!? I've looked at your pictures and the DM is so much nicer than your PM....

No way...PM8 is, by far, IMO, the best looking marker Dye ever produced, bar none.

I like my DM, but it's NOWHERE near as nice looking as my PM8.

dm12, is a big difference in feel, toolessness and just shooting then a PM8, yes they use most of the same parts.. fuse bolt etc.. I like the dm12 for the tooless ****, grips no screw and it just feels ****ing good in my hands
