DM6 on a diet...

So I milled down my DM6 with a Dremel tool a while ago. I never posted pictures or anything but it took me a while to do it. I started by cutting the big fins on the side of the gun off. Next, I took the lump of metal out of the top of the body. Then, I cut part of the very back off. I even took the fin out of the eye covers! I then took sand paper and started at 150 grit and went all the way to 600 grit (it took a long time). Finally, I was ready to send it off to get a fresh new anno. I sent it to MKriegs which was by far the best choice I could have made. He was the cheapest, quickest, and nicest out of ALL the anodizers I talked to. So uhh, what do yall think??















PS: Look! No More Fins!

Excellent for a handjob. If you want that thing on a real diet you put it in a CNC mill and turn the body into a tube on a box

I just want to point out i saw a dm6 or seven with this exact same design of milling, and exact same anno about a year ago. At first i thought you may have bought that one but it is slightly different.



And by the way this is one done by elia.

I was thinking the same thing.... so that begs the question, why is that ano popular for these slimed down DM's. To be honest I wanted to finish the parts on my dremeled DM in lime green too and I dont really know why.

I don't know what you guys are thinking, there is absolutely nothing sexual in this statement!

btw you should have wet sanded down to 1000 grit..

would have taken a while, but your anno would have come out much better..

I didn't want the pictures overwhelming or anything so I made them small. But I will try to get a couple more when I get home. I did take a lot of weight off the gun though.
