So, my buddies DM12 got run over by a car.

As the title states, my buddies DM got run over on the highway because he left the case on his roof and it fell off. I feel bad for him so I'm trying to see what parts can be salvaged and resold. As far as I can the ASA is gtg and the solenoid and board both looks good, but the gun eye wires and solenoid wires were ripped in half.

Now, is there anyway for me to test the solenoid and board outside of the gun? I think the bolt may be good as well, but there is a dent in the top of the body keep me from being able to pull it out, so that may be a lost cause.

Any suggestions or tips would be appreciated because I'm trying to help him recoup some of his cost in order to buy another marker.

Thanks

I think the best thing you can do is just find another similar year Dm and switch parts out to see if they'll function. I think I speak for the community by saying I'd like to see some pics of the damage lol.

Sorry for the delay on photos. Reg is gone, only the manifold of the solenoid is remaining, bolt is stuck, and UL has some stress cracks, but no major damage.

Not really sure where you're going with this, but you're dragging this thread off topic. So, unless you have something constructive to add, please go away.

if the end goal is to reassemble the gun, i dont think thats happening. especially if you can't get the bolt out. if you can do that, then im betting it still holds air just fine.

the board can be tested by just plugging in a battery and seeing if it turns on. the noid could still be fine, but you'd have to solder on new wires. if you do that, theres a red button on the noid itself. that will manual cycle the gun. if that works then your noid is probably fine.

Thank you Pakistani for your input. There is no hope of the gun being reassembled, just trying to salvage what is useful.

I realized after pulling the solenoid that the manifold is all that is left, so I don't think there would be anyway for me to test it without the electronic component, is that correct?

I'm sure some of the parts are still fine and marketable. The airport and grips could fetch a couple $20, the trigger as well. Someone might need the various screws and hardware and not want to buy a full parts kit. Definitely take the pictures and make a thread in BST.

That's exactly what I did, full disclosure of course. ASA already sold and working on parting out the rest.

Ya a lot of that gun should be salvageable. You could dremel the bolt out if the body is just bent and keeping it in. Frame looks ok, board.....grips etc. Good luck

Looks like a Virtue board too so you can get $40 or so for that.

I'm just going to try and sell the body as a whole, I'm lacking in tools so someone else can screw with it if they want, lol.
