is a dm4 still a good marker?

so basically yeah, feedback on the dm4 would be much appreciated, is this a good price? will it still be a competitive gun? are there any major problems I should watch out for? is there anything I would need to upgrade? if I need parts would I be able to find them?

I have sold 3 Dm6's for just a little over $200 each and in my opinion they out shoot any other Dye matrix marker.
Look on PBN for a dm6 and you will find a good deal that fits your budget. Good luck

Bitches and guns, this is every man's dream. I don't want to go home, where I'm just an ordinary human being...

Headshot is selling a whole DM4 package here for $225 shipped, you could see if he'll part just the marker for you at a lower price.
EDIT: man I was slow to check mcb & find that bst link, lol

as for the dm4 is concerned, from what i can tell, its steep on price, and if the eyes arent working, that's a big red flag that he's over chargin ya. if you can get him to throw in maybe an e-hopper or hpa tank, or maybe extra parts and/or mask, just something to soak up the cost of the marker, it would be a better deal.

Plus, it could be a whole other issue besides bad eyes.
Like everyone else has said, $200 is the high end of what you'd pay for a DM4. You can get a DM6 for around that, and while there is no difference in how they shoot, the DM6 is a bit lighter and easier to find parts for.

The problems with DM4s compared to other similarly priced markers which have come out more recently will mostly deal with parts availability if things do go down. Also, older electro-pnuematics are more complex with regard to assembly/dissassembly. Newer markers generally have fewer wires/hoses to pinch, the parts are consolidated, the threaded parts and o-rings are (more) standardized.. You'll especially notice this in markers that came out around 2006/2007.
Now, by no means am I saying to go out and get that 2010/2011 paintslinger. You'll pay far more for one of those than you'll get in value. And if you decide the DM4 is what you'd like.. it will shoot paint fairly reliably at 280 fps at 15bps without trouble.
As far as electropnuematics out on the market, I'd strongly consider the Invert Mini, SmartParts Vibe (although spare parts may be an issue here), a BL protege, or an Etek/Ego6/Ego7. All excellent performing markers which have very good value for their current prices on the market.
