Question About Dye guns.

So Dye guns have known to not be that high quality in the past like they don't work in the cold, or they break easily. Did they change this in the dm14? Is it high quality or did they just change the macro-line and the looks?

Dye guns have never been low quality, and whoever or wherever you heard that from is wrong. They do not break easily, and work just fine in the cold if set up right.

Also, I don't think this quite pertains to magfed or milsim paintball.

Certain DYE/Proto markers have been terrible and known to go down, like the SLG and the NT. The DM series only has cold weather problems if it has been tuned improperly (too low lpr/dwell settings), and has always been a solid shooter. However there really haven't been any big changes to the design in many years. A PM8 is basically the same gun as the DM14 except for some rubber pads, the ASA, and the trigger, and that's a 6 year old marker.

Very few high end markers regardless of manufacturer have changed significantly as far a technology in the past several years. Those that are new or have changed significantly are just playing catch up.

For what it's worth I don't think Dye makes a low quality marker. I've never had any problems with my DM or Reflex. I've been shooting them for the last 3 years.

From what I've seen in my DAM (which is magfed...so there's the tie in) the quality of the marker is top notch. I haven't had the issues others have had with not being able to get a good velocity out of the marker without leaks or paint breaks. If other Dye products are similar to this, then I wouldn't hesitate to own them.
