Dye is proud to introduce the DM12, the newest and most advanced member of our original series of markers of the famed DM line. This is the marker that has guided the Ironmen and Damage to numerous titles, and has been the backbone of Dye’s product line for almost a decade. The DM is not only the most reliable, well established and longest-running marker in Dye’s history, but also has the capability to shoot the most fragile tournament-grade paint on the market, carries a tradition of being among the smoothest, quietest, and most accurate paintball markers in the world. We’ve made the DM12 even lighter than its predecessor, and a combination of tried and true technology and innovative new features truly makes this marker The Choice of Champions™.
ICON QUICK RELEASE - The quick release bolt system is a new feature on the DM12 that incorporates magnets within the back cap. These magnets allow for the back cap to extend and give you enough surface area to grip the bolt and unscrew it by hand. This makes maintenance much easier than ever before.
ICON FUSE BOLT™ - The DM12 utilizes DYE’s patented closed valve spool design. DYE’s one-piece Fuse bolt system operates at an extremely low 145psi. This low operating pressure produces a smooth bolt cycle, minimal recoil, and extreme accuracy.
ICON EYEPIPE™ - The Eye Pipe, patent pending, internal design houses multiple critical systems that ensure worry free performance. The polycarbonate pipe shields the self-cleaning anti-chop eye system from dirt and broken paint ensuring the eyes are always monitoring the breech and ball drop. The seamless pipe is wiped clean by the bolt tip o-ring on every cycle. The Eye Pipe system eliminates miss feeds, and double feeding. In addition it eliminates external eye plates and the potential of striped or corroded plate mounting screws.
ICON REACH TRIGGER - The Reach Trigger is the next evolutionary step in individually customized ergonomic comfort, not to mention optimal trigger speed. With the Reach Trigger it is possible to adjust the angle and reach of your trigger externally. The new angle adjustment combined with the Travel and Spring Tension allows you to create a personalized fit to reach your ultimate shooting capabilities.
ICON LOCKDOWN - The adjustable cam lock lever allows you to securely lock you Rotor™ onto your gun without tools. DYE’s cam lock feed neck sits low and tight on the marker making sure your Rotor™ stays low profile with the rest of your gear.
ICON AIRPORT - Introduced in 2010 the UL airport has dramatic curves and an aggressive look, it designed to be small and light as possible. The UL airport is a balanced cam lever system with an easy turn on/off toggle. When the knob is in the locked on position, air is delivered to the marker through the linear front port for maximum comfort and a streamlined design.
ICON LPR - The DM12 is the only spool valve marker in production that utilizes the advantages of a Low Pressure Regulator. The LPR is a critical component that gives the DM12 it’s ultra smooth and quiet function that has made the DM series markers famous. The LPR provides you with precise control over the DM12’s cycle speed and force at an extremely low 60-70psi, ensuring you the ability and confidence to shoot brittle paint. Refined over the last 8 years, the LPR system works perfectly with the fuse bolt system.
ICON HYPER3™ - The proven Hyper regulator design has been greatly improved. Now introducing the Hyper3™ in-line regulator. This new design is sleeker, smaller, consistent and offers precise increments of air pressure adjustment. Our new shim stack is more responsive and reacts quicker to pressure changes allowing better flow and a faster response. The size has been dramatically reduced allowing us to incorporate the soft rubber our proven Sticky Grips. In addition, the Hyper3™ air input swivel ring allows it to work with all bottom line configurations.
ICON COLOR CODED ORINGS - Color Coded o-rings make it easy to quickly identify the correct replacement o-ring when performing maintenance of your marker.
ICON ULTRALITE™ FRAME - The UL 45 frame is the culmination of top pro player influence and progressive engineering. The hour-glass UL frame was ergonomically designed to give the player complete control of the marker while still allowing to quickly and effortlessly pull the trigger. An integrated heads up display LED light alerts you to the status of your marker without taking your eyes off the game.
ICON STICKY GRIPS - The Toolless full wrap around Sticky Grip allows for easy access to the battery and circuit board for programming without using tools at all. The front body contact pad allows for maximum comfort and stability.
PGA - A first for the paintball industry, Dye has developed an advanced anodizing process that allows any graphic to be directly transferred to the surface of the gun. Additionally, Dye’s PGA process ensures minimal graphic resolution loss or distortion, while maintaining ultimate clarity. The all new 2012 DM Series comes in several limited edition anodized patterns. These graphics are unique in color and design to each gun and will be run in a limited number, so make sure you grab yours before they run out.
