Dye DM9 with Ron Paul Lasering
No one loves Ron Paul - or at least on
ebay.com. I had been looking for another DM since the loss of my
green dm9 and the failure of my DM7. Searching on ebay I found a
DM8 a few months back, but even numbers are BAD(for some unknown reason
I only play with odd year Dye guns and even number Eclipse guns).
While many DM9 guns are selling for $400-$500, I found a DM9 with "Ron
Paul Revolution" laser engraved in the side and no one was
bidding. I ending up grabbing it for a bit over $300 with
shipping. Basically a stock DM with barrel. It was just
dirty as hell. I brought it home and it shot like a champ. It was
set on 1,2,3, then step up to 2x fire per pull. I am not sure
about that kind of speed, but it could be fun to play with.
I have not decided what to do with the laser of
Ron Paul. I think with some minimal changes/stickers I can change
it to Raleigh Paintball Revolution.
Update 4-15-12 I played with the gun for the first
time at Black River yesterday and I worked perfectly. It was
initially shooting a little hot, but a quick turn of the HPR and we
were back down to the needed 280-285 range. It was accurate and
fast enough. I really don't like the ramping and need to turn
that off. I plan on getting this thing set int he same format as
my DM7 with a steady, solid trigger that doesn't ramp.
