The Dye Assault Matrix was built from the ground up to be the ultimate product for tactical players. We wanted to provide the industry with a stunning tactical marker that gives users the performance of a high-end tournament marker, as well as the aesthetics and features that tactical players need to thrive on the battlefield.
-
The DAM has the ability to switch from a Magazine Fed system to a Loader Fed system with the flip of a switch, it can seamlessly change firing modes (semi, three round burst, full auto), comes standard with Picatinny rails for accessorizing, a gas-through frame, an easily maintainable bolt with a quick release system and built in hyper regulator, clamping feedneck, competition-style single trigger frame, Dye Tactical Sticky Grips, and much more.
-
The Dye Assault Matrix delivers the perfect combination of performance and versatility, catering to all styles of play and giving users that edge on the scenario field that only Dye can provide. The weight of the DAM is 4.76 lbs without the clip.

DAM FEATURES

Mag Feed
The DAM comes magazine feed ready. Ambidextrous magazine release for right and left handed users makes reloading a snap and allows you to keep an extremely low profile, even when reloading. All Dye magazines are First Strike round ready and waiting to deliver each shot just like a real firearm. Leave the accuracy-by-volume to the trigger monkeys and do it like the big boys. One shot, one kill.

On The Fly System
Be the most versatile player on the field with the all new OTF system. Combined with the rotating eye pipe gearing, this system allows the operator of the DAM unprecedented options for loading capabilities. With the slide of the OTF switch, the operator can seamlessly move from traditional hopper fed, to magazine fed loading, and back again at a moments notice. Use your shaped projectile rounds when you need precise shots and go back to regular paint when volume is necessary.

Quick Release Bolt
The quick release bolt system is a feature on the DAM that incorporates magnets within the knurled back cap. These magnets allow for the back cap to extend and give you enough surface area to grip the bolt and unscrew it by hand. This makes maintenance of your bolt easier than ever before.

Inline Hyper Regulator
The all new In-Line regulator is based on the proven Hyper line of regulators and improves on it with the easiest access and simplest break down of any gun Dye has made. With the Quick Release Bolt any operator can toollessly access their bolt and regulator in one simplified assembly. Now all parts that require standard maintenance are accessed with 2 turns. With velocity adjustment accessible through the back cap, we’ve moved the regulator out of the way for that real military look and operation.

Rotating Eyepipe
The Eye Pipe, patent pending, internal design houses multiple critical systems that ensure worry free performance. The polycarbonate pipe shields the self-cleaning anti-chop eye system from dirt and broken paint, ensuring the eyes are always monitoring the breech and ball drop. The seamless pipe is wiped clean by the bolt tip o-ring on every cycle. The Eye Pipe system also eliminates miss feeds and double feeding. In addition it eliminates external eye plates and the potential of stripped or corroded eye plate mounting screws.

Fire Selector
With the push of a button the DAM can switch from Semi Auto to Three Round Burst to Fully Automatic, or if you want to get fancy you can even program specific firing modes that cater to your style of play. All changes can be done with your gun fully assembled, even mid-game. A board lockout can be implemented to get you on the tournament field or any firing mode-restricted areas. Precision or volume, just a button away.

Removable Lockdown Clamping Feedneck
The DAM comes standard with a feedneck Cover Plate that can replace the feedneck assembly giving the operator an unbroken top Picatinny Rail compatible with all standard military optics. Reduces your profile and gives your DAM the most realistic look and feel. It also comes with an adjustable cam lock feedneck allows you to securely lock you loader onto your gun without tools. DYE’s cam lock feed neck sits low and tight on the marker making sure your loader stays low profile with the rest of your gear.

Competition Grade Trigger
Based on a custom design by Youngblood himself, the DAM’s trigger incorporates vertical ridges and an extra wide face, used by top firearms competition shooters. This design ensures steady trigger feel even in the most adverse conditions with or without gloves. Customizable forward and backward travel with spring tension adjustment create the perfect pull.

Modular Rail Shroud
The two interchangeable shroud sections and front cap allow the operator to reconfigure the DAM for any style of play. With all shroud sections installed, the DAM has over 2 Feet of standard Picatinny rails. All side and bottom rails are removable and interchangeable. Picatinny rails are standard for fire arms and will allow attachment of any standard optics, grips, etc.

Tactical Sticky Grips
With even easier Toolless access to the battery and extra thick ergonomic design, this all new grip improves on every aspect of these top-of-their class grips.
Sounds epic! Now, if they make it around the same price, or $100-$200 more than a Tac Drone, it will be a seller. If they make it $1000-$1200 it will flop.

^ well then I guess it will flop , because there is absolutely no way this will be cheaper than a DM.

It'll be $1000+, guaranteed. Probably closer to $1300 at launch. I'm half expecting it to be $1499.

To me it's not a *true* magfed milsim AR since it only runs 10 round mags (effectively). So personally I wont bother. It does make sense for those who want to use the hopper and switch to mag for FS. If they release a proper 20 round mag I'll be in the market.

What are you talking about? The mag is 20 rounds. Just not 20 continuous. You have to shoot 10 and then spin it around for the other 10. That's not exactly a big deal for the type of play you'd use this for.

Even if it comes out at $1000+ I think it will do well. But this is assuming it's performance is up to par. This has the potential to be the best tactical marker on the market. I'm a PE fan but this is easily better then the Etha w/ EMC as well as Bob Long's Tactical G6R (when it comes to features). Again that's provided it performs up to par.

I'm was a bit surprised to see its so heavy (for a paintball fun). But I guess I've been carrying around these sub-2lb markers for too long lol

That should be very easy to figure out.
I'm certain that's because the mag in this picture isn't the feed one. Did you watch the video?

That is most likely the plug clip for only running a hopper. With the option to have that kind of versatility IDK why anyone would ever run JUST a hopper lol

I wont say who took that picture in case they might face punishment for taking it in that area but even though the video and spec information have already been released on the dam I will clarify that that picture was taken in Dye's back hush room which is an area reserved for very select VIP's , Some Sponsored Pro's and Select Dealers in this room they preview all new 2013 gear. Having said that everything in that picture is possibly new for 2013. Also I will say that Dye has all ways played things very hush about new products and Im sure for many Dye releasing this was a very big shock and totally unexpected. Me personally Im still hoping that the rumors Ive heard about a new NT are true and not rumors. But I guess we will all have to wait and see.

Comes down to the bold bit. Using it for FS or with a hopper, fine. But in a magfed only game you're disadvantaged unless most of the other players are using dmags. When you've spent $1500 on the marker you don't want a half baked setup.

I think this is a great marker and concept. PBN_Autotrader and I were actually talking about this, The DAM is not going to be for everyone and its going to be its niche marker meaning its only going to be for certain people. But when this finally starts hitting the fields its going to be extremely effective first youll be able to snip people out using first strikes in the mag and then switch to the hopper if you have to battle your way out.

That's assuming your field either supplies or allows you to bring FIrst Strikes.

I'm not sure if anyone noticed that this has the same dual stack mag configuration as RAP4's Dmags and they had some legal issue with an existing patent held by Carmatech, which has been resolved a few weeks ago. Maybe that's why we haven't hear about the DAM until now. Dye probably didn't want to get dragged into that lawsuit.

I highly doubt that is a DYE marker.
And if you look closely, you'll also notice that it has a Dye UL barrel, and an ASA that is reminiscent of the original Airport and what looks to be a new Izon Red-Dot Sight. But you're right, it's most likely NOT a Dye Marker.

I'm assuming you would need to chrono low with standard paint? I've never shot first strike rounds, but I thought I heard you needed a lower fps to use them. just curious for safety reasons switching back and forth.

Yup, you would chrono with the first strikes down to the field limit, but that means you'd be shooting lower with regular paint.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
