Question about buying used dm

I'm wonder what the last year of dm that is still supported by dye. Have they stopped making parts for the older models like pe does with the egos?

Thanks for the info

Nooo dye is not like planet eclipse. I called them up yesterday actually, they still make parts for the dm4! The dm12 uses the exact same parts as the 13 too!

Dye is excellent at taking care of their older matrix owner's. I have a DM8 and have never had a problem getting anything for it.

dye will most likely have parts for a dm6 - 13

when you're looking for a used DM, what i check for is the condition its been in what type of player used it stuff like that. you know if it looks decent on the outside it's most likely going to be fine it means it was well taken care of... it's like buying a used car think of it that way...

Anything on a dm is fixable.. 99.6 percent of all issues on dm's with new owners is a battery and or a simple oring change

Ok great. Sounds like your basic used gun rules. Just wanted to make sure there wasn't any hidden issues to know. I was going to get an ego until I was told pe doesn't support older models so I wanted to be safe.

Thanks for all the help

but honestly a small leak is just the bolt sail oring. i've bought "broken" guns like that for an extremely discounted price because they thought the noid was leaking, but it was just a 5 cent oring....it pays off to know a thing or two about dye guns.

So if you buy a leaking one and it does turn out to be the noid, what would that repair cost? Still worth picking up a used one with a leak then?

Solenoid will run you $80-$90, I believe they come with the gasket but don't quote me on that. If not and you need one be about another $5. Anything is worth picking up with a leak as long as the price is right when you add your parts cost in and you're reasonably sure it's a repairable leak. Damaged frames/stripped frame holes etc. maybe not so much.

If any gun has a leak, price it as much as it will cost for the most expensive repair. So if its $1000 with a leak, pay $900

it's really not likely u'll ever find a dm with a blown noid, but if it leaks then its a oring issue most likely..


Now if you ever buy a used DM or any dm and want me to fix it up for you tune it lube it etc, let me know look at my sig, I have 99.5 percent of all parts used or new. so I have used noids as well

I've gotten smoking deals at fields on "broken" DMs that needed a bolt sail oring, or a top hat oring.
