Hey guys, I am looking to buy a used DM4 for around 100-130$ (I see a few for that price range), and was wondering, is it still worth using? I mean I know the changes have not been that great between the years, but for about 100$ more I could get a G3 or Mini, so do DM4s still hold their own compared to other markers commonly used like Ions and such?

Well, it's going to be bigger and heavier than a G3, Mini, Ion, or really most any other marker made in 05/06 or later. But it's still going to go as fast as any modern DM/PM, will still get about the same efficiency, will shoot just as smooth, be just as quiet...

Looking at the options it has anti chop eyes, which are on all modern electros, so i would say yes it would be a great gun to have and I would ty to get my hands on one.

As was said you wont have all of todays new features but you will have a nice gun that is backed by a solid paintball company that wont die off or shut down any time soon.

Im not sure, since I dont shoot dyes, but accessories might be a little harder to come by but youll be able to find stuff on ebay and some sites.

I would go for it, this gun will shoot ropes arond a stock ion. Remember this gun was a TOP OF THE LINE gun in its time that cost over a thousand dollars when it came out, 130 buks dosent sound that bad now does it.

OH yea and one more thing

Got a line on another one of those for that price ;)

A DM4 will hold it's own against any electro out there. The only downfall it has is its size and weight compared to the newer markers and a slight defficiency in efficiency compared to newer DMs/PMs. You can keep it stock and mow faces, you can upgrade it to hell and still mow faces.

But really, who needs a few oz's shaved off of weight and a few inches cut off when you can have the smoothest shooting DM ever made?

I still have the first Electro I ever bought....GZ Timmy. Purchased new, first production run. It still works great.

I would say if you can find a DM4 for that price and are willing to take the time and learn how it works so you can repair it when it goes down you will be very happy with it.

Shoot, an original Matrix would still be a great gun to use on any given day of rec play!

You mean a Tadao board? Cause those are great boards.
PBNation probably has some DM4 stuff stickied or at least archived.

I'd use a DM4 as a backup if I already had a decent electro. If I didnt have one then I'd save the cash to get something a little more up to date.
