...sooo, you think your gun is heavy.. My matrix comparision..

I got back into playing again this year and things have changed. When I was getting out of tourny play the DM5 was the newest gun on the market..

I still play with my "vintage" markers and I love them to death. But there is usually always someone who makes a remark on how heavy my guns are. I'm 6' tall and weigh 275 lbs and have rather large hands and to me, the older guns just feel better.. Anyways I decided to put together some data on how much exactly all my marker weigh, both just gun/barrel weight and then full playing weight minus paint. If anyone feels like adding data on their own setups then please do so.

THE GUNS..

NYX Matrix (pre DYE)
Stiffi 16" barrel
evolve gold bolt kit
CP rail and on/off

comes in at 3.43 LBS




DYE DM3
Stiffi 16" barrel
cp rail/dovetail asa

comes in at 3.35 LBS




DYE DM4
all stock
14" stock ultralight
system X on/off asa

comes in at 3.24 LBS (i really thought it was lighter than that)




SHOCKTECH DM5
stock 14" ultralight barrel
ultralight frame
Virtue OLED board
CP mini on/off asa

comes in at 2.6 LBS (this is my personal favorite marker of the group)




DYE NT10
stock 14" ultralight barrel
Hybrid on/off ASA

comes in at 2.06 LBS








TANK

68/4500
Pure Energy with Crossfire reg

weighs 3.15 LBS







LOADER

Dye Rotor v3
standard energizer batteries (Litheon Ion weighs much less)

Weighs 1.36 LBS

Instead of weighing in each gun combo, I'm only showing a few. These numbers are without paint. I'm really wanting to know what is the lightest 68/4500 tank on the market as of now.. it may be beneficial to drop some wight from that area if possible.


DYE DM3

weighs 7.87 LBS





DYE NT10

weighs 6.59 LBS

That was the idea. The DM4 was designed to seem a lot lighter than the DM3 even though there was not a big difference in weight. It was just dispersed in a way that made the DM4 feel more balanced.

Yup, much more balanced and less back-heavy than the DM3.
