DM5 Red with Virtue Board
Gun Purchased LNIB October 2006 from Ebay
Part of a package deal of guns I just couldn't pass up. This
is the first one of the batch, but since I already have one
I guess I must dump it ASAP.
Update : December 2006
So after playing in the local 3v3 tourney with this gun I
was very pleased. The gun worked great without any serious
issues. I enjoyed playing in the PSP mode (three shot, then
full auto). Some concerns about air efficiency. Without the
Evolve bolt like the Black Dm5, it seems to suck up lots of
air. Also, I was playing very different, using it full auto
all the time. Between these two it hurt. Examples: I would
fill up air to about 4000psi on the 70ci tank. I would use
loader, then maybe one pod and walk off the field at about
1800PSI. One game I jammed thru loader (Halo by the way) and
three extra pods and the gun was drained. So about 200 + 3x140
= 620 rounds and this thing is done. As a comparison,at the
October 2006 Hopewell 24 hour game, end of day paint destroyer,
with the black DM5, I had roughly 1600 rounds on me. I shot
it all and was just starting to dip into the under 1000PSI
range. Also at the Anzio big game I shot a similar amount.
Anyway, it sure is a pretty gun. I still think I should sell
it, but lack the motivaion.
Problem - During the first time used, after about 1000 rounds,
the grip frame came loose. No bad results. I just tightened
the front and read screws and everything worked and felt fine.
I shot about another 2000 rounds thru it that day and nothing
else went wrong.
