Pmr to DYE

I have a PMR that has a dye bottom assembly along with a few other upgrades as far as the electronics of the gun. I'm just curious as to if I could put a dye upper assembly and bolt and anything else that would be different into the gun and if so what type of dye parts would it be and how complicated would it be? Thanks

You might as well get a DM if you're just going to change everything out. The PMR bolt is similar to DMs but not exactly the same in some of the later DM models.

The marker already had all of this done to it and I was wanting to change the top section of the gun to a red dye part.with all due respect I was asking if you can do this not what I should do. Thanks for your input though.

I don't think what you're talking about is possible, I don't believe there are any dye bodies that will accept a pmr grip frame. At this point you probably would just be better off picking up a used dm7 or something if you'd like to make the switch to a dye matrix.

It already has a dye grip frame on it I just do not like the color of the mark and want to buy a red top assembly and figured I might as we'll buy a dye top part. I also have contacted dye and waiting for a call back. Thanks for the comments though

Well if you already have a dye grip frame then I would assume a dye body would work. Probably need a different bolt though

If I posted a picture of it could anyone give me a general idea at what I would have to buy to make it work?

So you have a PMR UL frame already and you want to bring that over to a dye?


whatever ASA you have you could bring over... you could rip out the board and the trigger...

however the frame itself will not fit. Also the electronics from your PMR would not be helpful unless it went into a dm8 or older but the benefit would be marginal (12.5)

PMRs and DMs arent very compatible with each other like an etek or Ego would be

As stated already.

You have a PMR that has had the grip frame swapped out for a UL frame made to fit on a PMR and only on a PMR.

You cannot swap the top of the gun to a Dye part. The only thing compatible with a PMR UL frame, is a PMR.

If you want to have a Dye gun, buy a Dye gun, that's the only way it's going to happen.

Ummm, nobody's being a dick here. What you want to do (switch your pmr body for a dye body) is simply not possible AT ALL. None of the dye dm bodies will fit onto your grip frame. The grip frame is made by dye, yes. But it ONLY fits the gun you have. No other body's fit that gun, only the pmr bodies.

The bolt assembly, solenoid assembly, regulator mounting etc. are COMPLETELY different between your gun and ANY dye guns. It is simply not possible AT ALL.

So to answer your question, NO you CANNOT get a dye body to put on your gun. The only way to change the color of your gun is to send it in to get anodized, or possibly a different service type like dura coating or hydrodipping.

That's all I wanted to know, thank you for answering my question and once again I am new to the paintball world and did not know about the frame.

Your question had already been answered numerous times, yet you chose not to listen.

When people are trying to help you, please do not be rude and tell them to "Please take your comments somewhere else", adding the word please at the beginning doesn't make it ok.

Like I have stated I have no clue about anything on it, I did not know what "ul" meant and you evidently cannot comprehend that I'm new to everything and do not have a great knowledge of it. However thank everyone else for helping answer my question! It is greatly appreciated

Well, there's a ton of information regarding everything Dye related in the sticky thread at the top of the forum. You can save yourself a lot of headaches and questions if you take the initiative to research things instead of just asking. This particular thread isn't a question that comes up often. It would however only take a few minutes with google to figure out what people meant by PMR UL frame.

Hawkins I'm not sure you even understand... you were told that it would not be possible at least 3 times nicely that you might as well buy a Dye gun if you want a Dye body and grip. We aren't *******s, we're all trying to help you but you are being unreceptive.

In the future when asking for help be more courteous to those attempting to help you.
