Other than that, IMO the DM is much more comfortable in the hands than the Luxe. The stock board is LED only, although not bad (nothing incredible, either). They can be set up to be smoother shooting than the Luxe, but when set up to be so will be SUPER finicky with temperatures and lubing.
Speaking of lubing, the DM is just as bad with overlubing. MASSIVE bolt stick and FSDO if you overlube.
Overall, maintenance is going to be similar to the Luxe, there's a second reg, but once you find a place where it shoots good without drop-off and still smooth, you can pretty much just leave it setting. I prefer the DM's to the Luxe due to how much more comfortable they are to me, but obviously YMMV.
This is spot on.
Another thing to consider with the DM is the eyepipe. Some hate them, some don't care. It is another piece that needs to be replaced at some point, so get a few spares if you get the DM.
