New to speedball and dm8 ?

Hello im new tp speedball im from NYC
I been playing paintball for about a year and i have a 98 custom wit cyclone feed, and a a5 and i just picked up a dm8 wit oled board and was told it has 2010 parts i got it wit a halo hopper and 68/45 tank and some other stuff.
Would this b a good gun to start wit also r the parts still available for it. i also was thinkin about picking up a bob long 2k5 timmy or a auto-clocker. any advice would be great.

Thanks
my dm8



the 2k5 timmy

Dm8s are fantastic, easy to use and maintain. That halo and 68 will be perfectly fine. There really isn't a reason to pick up two more guns unless you want to learn about two more completely different guns. Autocockers require tuning and some mechanical knowledge. Timmy are sick too.

The dm8 should do you good, man. I'd stick with it for a while before you get into the autococker scene. Not that they're not great guns...but it's a little more difficult to maintain than for the newer player. Stick with the tippmann and the dm8. Dm8's are sick...sooo smooth.

I would start out with a spyder electra, just because not everyone likes speedball and you won't be upset if you don't like speedball. The electra is also good in the sense that you are a beginner to speedball, so start with something basic. I have been playing for half a year and I used to have a Bob Long which broke. Two different guns, the Dm8 and the Bob long marq 7, but they can and will break because they are used eventually. Now I'm using a Spyder Fenix, because I need to slow down. Don't go directly to high end, you'll regret it. dm8 is a great gun still and your setup is good

Where do you play?

Also, the dm8 requires more lube maintenance. So i would just download the manual online and learn the ins and outs of the bolt assembly.

The intimidator is a nice gun as well. I just do not like hoses connecting the solenoid .

Autocockers are usually problem matic. Require to much tuning and tinkering.

I would pick up the dm8 over the two mentioned.

If you already have the DM8 then it makes no sense to go backwards and get the 2K5 Timmy or the autococker. Stick with the DM8. Paintballgateway has lots of upgrade, replacement and aftermarket parts for it if/when you need it.

As for Cousin's, if you haven't already been there I can tell you that its kind of wack. I'd say dont even waste your time, money or gas. Especially when you are already closer to Liberty paintball in Paterson, NY which is probably like 30min north of you. Much better place.

That's LIC Paintball. Or at least that was its name. Don't even waste your time. Trust me

No. Liberty is a location you would have to drive too. If you have to rely on public transportation to get to fields then unfortunately you may have to play at Cousin's in SI or LIC. But they are easily a couple of the worst places to play at in the Tri-state area

All 3 guns you have are actually quite phenomenal and the top two are still used in tournaments of most ranks to this day.

The cocker is a Karnivor, which was essentially at the pinnacle of cocker technology back in 2005 along with Nexus DCs and FT2s, etc.


All of your guns are fantastic and should hold you over forever if maintained properly.



EDIT: oh, those guns aren't in your possession other than the DM8.


The Timmy is this:

Gen3 Warped Sportz Dark Intimidator.
Has a Shocktech ASA
CP High Pressure Reg (downgrade)
Alias trigger and guard
Aftermarket bolt of some sort (probably downgrade looking at what else is on the gun)
Gen2 LPR with volumizer

That's from what I can see. it may have more.



The DM8 has (from what I see)

CP Flow plug (good)
Virtue OLED (good)
Critical Raze Trigger (Good, but up to you. better than stock any day)
everything else looks stock other than the titanium barrel back.




The cocker (karnivor STO)

looks to be all stock






I'd suggest the Empire Freeway and the Magna Clutch drive for the Halo. Will stop it from feeding inconsistently, jamming or breaking paint.

On a side note if you ever decide to get an autococker, the prior post are correct on the part of timing, but that mostly applies to mechanical autocockers. If you get a Karnivor, those are electronic and work like any other electronic marker that is controlled via a board and timing issues are a thing of the past. If you ever get a chance try shooting a Karnivor and feel it for yourself...remember play with what shoots and feels good to you.
