I just bought a slightly used dm10 here for a great price. Where can I get replacement parts for a good price? Possibly even the original kit that comes with the gun.

Also any preferences on replacement grips?

I want it, and if you have the stock bag, I want that also.

What is a good barrel to go with? I seeing that deadlywinds + freak kit is pretty popular. Deadly winds doesn't show a full barrel for the DM on their site, just a tip. Does the stock back fit inserts?

The dye ultralite is a great barrel... dont know why you'd need to upgrade the tip, just a waste of money.

No stock UL barrel does not take inserts, it's a GREAT barrel, you shouldnt need to upgrade,


Now if you really want to upgrade I'd stick with the UL back and go with a stifi tip or a deadly winds tip. just for the hell of it never tried it i've seen it though

Now the tech t Ifit kit in my sig is also a good choice.. if you want inserts

PArts kit sell for 55$ on ANSGear..have all you need in there other than major parts such as solenoid and board. I would recommend to keep your UL barrel, it shoots just fine and has a low sound signature. Although is you want a good bore size to paint match (increasing efficiency and consistency) adding that Ifit kit to your UL barrel would be a good choice.

DM's make it worth trying to get a little more efficiency and you will still keep that low sound signature from the UL barrel if you get an Ifit.

If you plan on keeping it for a while, pick up a medium parts kit. And I'd keep the UL barrel, just pick up a .684 back for smaller paint.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Ill grab a kit and shoot a few thousand through befor I decide on the need for barrell additions. Picking up a smaller back sounds optimal.

If you're a real boss you get the ultralight back milled for a freak insert. Best of both worlds.

if you're a real boss that doesn't matter.

Who does that nowadays?

I have a SP barrel milled for a freak insert that I got when I purchased an evo cocker. Once I saw that I decided that I want to mill out my DM barrel. Have any links?

iFit kits are not great, the barrel tip does not add to performance and can potentially hurt it.

The ultralight is great, if anything you would want a smaller bore. A smaller bore will slightly increase efficiency. You should spend some time reading some data from test done by people educated on the matter in the barrel forums. You will be surprised at the amount of knowledge that is on this board if you are just willing to shift through on the nonsense some idiots spew.

Ideally, you would make up your own mind on what you want. There are a pro and cons to bore matching/underboring/overboring.

You just want a proper fit. Stock UL are like .688. Paintballs today are a lot smaller on average than they were before when .688 was the norm. This is where freak inserts or a barrel kit shine. Getting a different tip is pretty useless the dye tip is arguably the best barrel tip ever made next to anything smart parts (hence why they both dominated the market for well over a decade).

You want a bore fit where you can drop a paintball into the barrel and it gets slightly stuck and wont fall right out. Then you blow through the barrel and with minimal effort the ball comes out. That is how you gauge a proper fit.

protip: before you play, buy your paint first and open all of the bags. Let the paint swell/shrink depending on weather. Walk the fields, shoot the **** with your friends etc and come back to your paint later on. Then you do the bore test. You don't want to do the bore test and chrono the second you buy your paint that has been held indoors in a cool room. You want to do the test after the paint has been exposed to the weather of the day.

Paint around here in Cali still rolls through my .684 UL sometimes.

You are incorrect in your statement that the best fit or "pro tip" is to bore match.

As I said before, you can form your own opinion but I suggest reading the barrel forums where people who actually have done proper testing can and will provide feedback.

I dont see anything wrong with what he said.... you dont need some "barrel expert" to tell you how to figure out proper bore size.
