DM9-DM8-DM7-DM6 Comparison Thread

Not sure if this has been done before, but got bored so I decided to do it. I only did DM6-DM9, since I couldn't find a DM3/Trix or DM5. So I decided to stick with the UL versions.

I zero'd out the scale in between every gun. The DM9 is the Claret, DM8 is Olive-Black, DM7 is Clear, and DM6 is Blue. The DM7, DM8, and DM9 are all BNIB and straight out of the package. The DM6 is used, but stock.


DM9=2 Pounds 3.2 Ounces

DM8=2 Pounds 6.4 Ounces

DM7=2 Pounds 6.0 Ounces (Yes it's lighter than the DM8. I weighed them both several times and got the same results each time, DM8 is 0.4 ounces heavier than it's predecessor.)

DM6=2 Pounds 9.6 Ounces

Now onto the length comparison. This was a lot trickier than I thought, since the macro fitting on the side really screws up how they sit on top of each other. I won't take them off since they are all mainly NIB guns. I did my best to line the back of the guns up. They seemed pretty even by eye sight.

DM6 is in the way back, then DM7, then DM8, and finally DM9.





And just because I keep hearing how much shorter the body is on the DM9, here's a DM9 on top of a DM8.



Sorry for semi-crappy pictures, I used my camera phone.
Any more requests? I'll take them whenever I'm at work.

Good thread man. I think the 7's are the best looking ones so far with the 9's being the ugliest of the bunch. Good comparison though.

lol, yea, it has too much PMR in it. I sweat the 7's. The 6's are nice too though, even if it is hot pink....

The body on the 7's is a little bit shorter/thinner than on the 6. When the 7s first came out I held one against my 6. The area of the body just above the trigger is a bit smaller.

Well did he have pictures? The scale isn't wrong, it's what we use to weigh packages before we ship them out. Always the same weight as the post office gets. And like I said, I can weigh the gun several times and always get the same results.

I really like the look of the DM9 probably because it looks like a Marq.

I think the Hyper3 looks ugly as hell. The milling could be more flowing and less... ridgy on the DM8 and 9? Love the DM7 and 6 body though. Nice comparison. Good info!

since you happen to have a dm9 and a dm7 on hand, will the dm9 eye pipe fit into the dm7?
