I have a DM5 with a regular frame w/cp trigger and a DM6 with it's normal UL frame and stock trigger. That being said, toss a trigger of your choice in that DM5 and shoot it a bunch. CP plug if you get a leak on that front on/off. Nab some lube and o-rings before tossing $$ in mods..

Go out and play with it a few times...figure out what you don't like and go from there.

The usual upgrades are a flow plug to replace the on/off (I would personally just make sure the on/off is not leaking and just don't use it), trigger, UL trigger frame or new chip and keep the original frame, clamping feedneck.

Don't bother getting a different bolt, the stock bolt is just fine. If you want better efficiency then go with an eigenring. It's your marker and your money, make it how you want it

Not really a performance upgrade, there is nothing wrong with the hyper2 performance wise. It's as consistent as any other regulator out there, has good flow, and is reliable. As far as looks, well that's personal preference.

imo the hyper 3 would be a size/weight upgrade due to it's size.

btw, do they still make UL's for dm5? I'm looking for a gold to black/back to front UL frame for mine.

I don't think so, but if you call Dye maybe they can do something. There was a person on here that had a DM4 project and if I'm not mistaken, he got his hands on one that way. DM4 and DM5 UL frame are identical, only problem is it doesn't come in fade. all black only.

this is what I had on mine. Put my initials lasered on it in case it ever went missing.
Had it in my hads in under a week so not bad for the price.
