It's a 13. But Ikr? People where complaining "oh the dm13 weighs more than the 12 it's stupid" but in 2004, people would do anything to get one

efficiency aside, I think from my experience, the Gen-E/DM3's shot the best- IDK why though.!

my personal opinion of course and I've owned all except from 2011 onwards, but thats a nice comparison of the 2 you've done. good shooting platforms

Gen E Matrix for the win! Nothing says smooth like 10 pounds of metal gently rocking you to sleep with every shot.

I too love those old large bodied matrices from gen e...I've been shooting them since 02...I still have my original dm4 that I purchased new and I just picked up a dm12 last night from the bst section. I'm having carpel tunnel surgery on both hands done and I'm thinking the reduced weight might help me for awhile... I will still get out the big guns though from time to time

The Older dm's from dm5-8 shoot much smoother than the Dm12 and dm13.
I have tryed both. but the Dm13 is smaller. so the best one goes to the dm13's.
