Why does the DM8 need it's own proprietary regulator threads?

Seems to me like Dye is making a very selfish move to force people to buy new regulators instead of using existing models...

Business?? I don't know. I've given up trying to figure out why most of the larger PB companies do what they do.

The Matrix threads are much smaller than the standard ASA threads. This allows for Dye to make the regulators thinner as well as the marker body.

Hyper 3 regs are great regs so there's few people that want to change them.

They do make a Hyper 3 with ASA threads for other markers.

When you pay that much for a marker and still want to swap out parts you shouldn't be aloud to buy that marker.

Well since its smaller then regular threads, they did it most likely to save weight.

Yeah, basically another move to make the guns smaller and allow for more weight and excess stuff to be shaved off. And yes they do have normal hyper 3s for sale. and other companies make thread adapters for the gun too.
