They all shoot about the same from the 5 and up, 4's seemed to be a little bit more harsh but that's just my opinion. I'd take a 9 if you can get it I paid 300 for mine.

The best dm isn't a dm IMHO. I have shot them all. Untill about a week ago I I was shooting a dm11 and a pm7. I sold the dm11. They shot the exact same but because the pm7 run at higher pressure(smaller dump chamber) it get more shots per fill. I have never encountered any paint that my 11 could shoot that the pm7 couldn't shoot just as well. So the only diffreance was the number of pods they get. My 11 got 7. The pm get 10-11 on a good day. Long story short there all very good just find the one that makes YOU the happiest cause buying that latest dm seems to be a bad choice as fast as they loose resale. There are just to many great deal on slightly older dm's

Without BS, they are almost identical, shoot the same, so all you are talking about is "cool factor" and how it feels in your hand

They all shoot well, but the feel/balance changed alot from 8 to 9 when they shortened the bolt and removed the on/off. I actually prefer the 6-8 over the new ones.

Thats your personal opinion, not a fact....
However, you do have a point. Since the dm5 they have all been about the same except for the body size. BUT, no dm will be exactly like another.

I've owned dm 3,4,5,6,7,10 and shot the remaining models, teched them all but the 12, and my absolute favorite is the 6. Close behind it the 5, then the 4.
7-8 are the same, 9,10,11 are the same and the 12 is just crap to shoot.

Now note that I wrote that they are all different, so try to get a hold of a nice one. They are few and far apart, the ones that are perfectly fit(bolts).

DM10, simply because i love the ironmen trigger. If trigger makes no difference then just get the 9.

As for shot quality, i'm a big fan of the 6 and 7. The added weight in them balances the gun out well. If the 5 wasnt so damn heavy i'd be using that as my main gun... I actually use my dm6 more than my dm10

Pricepoint of the 9 is REALLY hard to beat.

If you have to shoot a DM (or just really like them), then the 11 and 12 are very nice too.

The toolless grips and toolless bolt (on the 12) add convenience to the package.
I really like the 45 degree collar on the 12 (can be added to most hyper regs) and I really like the NT grip frame feel.

My dm6 shoots great. You can find one for about 220 now. But try to get the newest you can.

The dm12 is different internally but the dm9-11 are all the same though and the 13 is the same as the 12.

I would say save up for the dm12. I have one and love it and you can get them used for cheap.
