2008 Dye DM8, PM8 & SLG - Updated with PHOTOS

Press Release:
The DM8 and M8 guns will both come with an all new, totally redesigned Hyper Reg that is significantly smaller, lighter, and has noticeably improved consistency and flow. It has been labeled the Hyper III


DM8 Specifications
New for 2008, the DM8 has a host of features, updates, and refinements. We have utilized our resources of professional players, designers, and engineers to come up with the best marker yet in the DM series. The DM8 continues the tradition of being one of the lightest, smallest, fastest and certainly the most accurate of paintball markers in the world. To improve on an already reliable design, the DM8 has no eyeplates. This is possible with the new internal patent-pending Eye Pipe anti-chop sensing system. This new design eliminates the need for eyeplates and allows us to reduce the width of the marker body, ultimately reducing the weight by 1.5oz. The new micro LPR has been reduced in size and now provides more efficient shot consistency. On top of this, we are introducing the all new Hyper3 regulator. The Hyper3 is now smaller, more consistent, and more precisely adjustable allowing you to set your pressure in finer increments. All of these innovations, coupled with new 3D body styling, standard features like the patent pending Ultralite frame and 2 piece barrel, give perfection a new meaning.

01 - Ultralite Barrel
Accuracy at its finest, the standard Ultralite™ 14 inch barrel.

02 - On/Off
The DM8’s integrated on/off air supply allows you to de-gas your marker at any time. Also includes the Airport On/Off that is perfectly balanced for an easy twist.

03 - Hyper3™
The new Hyper3™ regulator is now a smaller diameter with higher flow. This new design is more consistent and more precisely adjustable. The new Hyper3™ also features an ergonomic Sticky Grip Sleeve providing a more comfortable, textured foregrip.

04 - Low Pressure
The low 145 psi operating pressure provides smooth operating performance with less shot bounce.

05 - No Eyeplates
The DM8 features an all new internal patent-pending Eye Pipe anti-chop sensing system that is self cleaning, providing trouble free high rate of fire. Also, the ball detents have been upgraded to a new magnetic system that is softer on paint. This new design has allowed us to eliminate the need for eyeplates.

06 - UL Grip Frame
The DM8 is the proud owner of the world’s lightest, most compact and comfortable 45 grip frame available. The patent-pending hour-glass design allows for a sleeker profile, while heads-up display lights alert you to the status of your gun, without having to take your eyes off the game.

07 - Logo
Cast aluminum inset DYE logo.

08 - Legal Software
PSP and NPPL tournament legal software.

09 - Bearing Trigger
Completely adjustable trigger design allows you to customize your trigger position and refraction point. Trigger roller bearing inserts give the trigger stability and a smooth swing return.

10 - Ultralite
The weight of the DM8 has been reduced by 1.5 ounces.

11 - Ultralite Sticky3™
Ultralite Sticky3™ grip is standard and provides an anatomically correct fit to your hand. It is co-molded with a tacky rubber grip and hard plastic under-frame. The all new Hyper3™ also features the same tacky rubber.

12 - LED Control
High intensity LED provides identification to program functions. The DM8 has an all new heads-up display light which alerts you to the status of your gun, while still being able to focus on the game

13 - Power Buttons
Our metal/rubber button pad features large buttons that can easily be used while wearing gloves. Stainless steel buttons are guaranteed not to fail.

14 - Fuse™ Bolt
The improved removable one-piece Fuse™ bolt system operates at 145psi, has greater air flow and is more efficient. We have also improved the bumper system used in the Fuse™ bolt, offering greater reliability.

15 - Internal LPR
The modular internal LPR is even smaller and provides more efficient shot consistency and quality.

16 - Cam Feed Neck
Low profile locking feed port with adjustable cam lock neck allows you to use your choice of hopper and secure it firmly to the DM8.

Proto SLG
"The SLG will be a great first gun for new players and a great backup gun for experienced players. The SLG is priced below the PMR at $250. The marker operates using a spool valve and mechanical solenoid (not a solenoid valve) and a sear. The design is not like a matrix or anything else on the market. There are 3 dynamic o-rings and two parts to the bolt kit: bolt and backcap. The marker is more efficient than any of our other guns but is also a bit louder and has a bit more kick.

The SLG has the Hyper3. No LPR. Wired eyes. The gripframe is a polymer but is much, much stronger than the PMR gripframe. We learned from our mistakes and I would be very surprised if one ever breaks."
