The only major problem ive ever seen are the fragile wires inside (noid wires, microswitch/batttery harness) They can easily be snapped if you dont be gentle when maintaining the gun.

The solenoid wires coming off/breaking happens to a lot of people..You just would have to solder them back on, but to avoid this BE CAREFULL!!

well my DM$s break everytime i try to turn them on. The bolts fall out, the pads break, chop paint like crazy. . . .

or actually i have never had a problem with mine so knock on wood. These guns rock and are so simple its great.

So pretty much the problems were due to human error, not faulty parts or anything?

dlew2222 I think SLUHStud was kidding about his DM4's breaking. I mean why would someone get a second one if the first one broke alot? right?

yea, but like I said, if your gonna get a high end electro, or any electro for that matter, your just gonna have to deal with fragile wires.

just be carefull when maintaining the gun, simple as that.

the wires arnt THAT frigile, i mean ive never broken one. If ur careful and take ur time with the gun u will be fine. I mean u cant just go ripping the grip frame off and expect the wires to stay intact.

Also yes i was being sarcastic. I have never had a problem with either of my DM4s ( knock on wood )
