the pm8, for some odd reason, has a lot of hype on techpb and i simply dont understand why.
heres my take on it after owning more DM's and PM's than most people have owned guns.
go with the DM12. as of right now, thats the dye gun to own if you're looking for a newer DM.
You'll get Dye most up to date ergos along with the tool-less bolt and updated parts. Personally, i think the DM9 is the "sweet spot" as far as value goes. they retail for roughly $350, but if you're finding a DM12 for $500 thats a great deal.
the pm8 is a fine gun, but its not AMAZING. it has the dm9 bolt kit, but not the internal milling that the dm9 does. it has an LPR that can be a pain to adjust, still has the 12" proto barrel, and imo, looks goofy as hell.
if you want a matrix on the cheaper end of the scale, a DM8 or DM9 will serve you better.

To clarify a pm8 is around 200-250 on ebay, a dm12 is 550-900,
I am willing to wait for dm12's to drop to a comfortable 500-600 dollars.
I have a Proto reflex rail 2011 right now so I'm in no big hurry, I just wanted to know if dm12's are worth the extra money
which it sounds like they are.
