I am looking to replace my current marker with a DM15, however I have a few questions that I haven't really been able to find the answers for before I really decide on buying one.
I have heard that DM15s are very maintenance heavy which isn't really a huge deal, I wouldn't mind having to clean and lube the gun before a day of play. However I have heard that maintaining a DM can be very expensive because the eyes are prone to breaking and other expenses make keeping the marker at it's best very expensive. Is this true though? I haven't found anywhere but word of mouth that says that keeping up with a DM15 is very expensive, instead I find that it is just more work.
Also I was thinking of maybe just getting a DM14 for a few hundred cheaper and just pick up a Billy Wing bolt to put in the DM14 and that should do just as well. The main difference between the 15 and 14 is that the 15 comes with a stock BW and the feedneck doesn't swivel as well as the gun is contoured better (as far as I know). Any thoughts on this would be helpful.
How much would it cost me to maintain a DM15? Is it worth getting a DM15, or should I get a DM14 and a BW kit?? And is there anything that I should consider before buying one?
Any help that can be offered will be very appreciated!
