When I used my Clone there, I was also having multiple problems, but that was because of my .678 barrel. Shooting at 250 with that small of a barrel was too low of a pressure, and was causing shootdown and stuff, but also caused it to jam once it got a little bit dirty. What dwell were you running? I had to bump mine up to 18 to cycle nicely in cold weather at 250fps.

It was all problems all night. Clone went down, got out my Angel A1. Shoot great, untill we raked and did not remove the turf from the reball box. A single blade of turf grass is enought to make the angel leak. Shoots paint like a boss, but is defeated by a blade of plastic grass xD

If you are coming for the open day on sunday, I can check it out for you if you like. Been a while since I went through a Clone, but I wouldnt mind taking a swing at it.

The things I dont like about the DM all come from the bolt engine, and the LPR. They shoot very well, and I have no complaints about the bulk of the things. My DM8 had problems, and trouble shooting the Fuse bolt is a bitch. However, you have a Clone, which CAN be more troublesome. Under normal circumstances, it wont be an issue. But when you finally do get an issue with the bolt engine, it could be a LOT of things. I spent days on my DM8, before finally handing it over to R-M-I. And it has inner surface o-rings, something which I really dont like, because they are more difficult to lube, hard/impossible to inspect, and a bitch to get in and out of their slot.
I dont like the LPR, because if you want to work on it, you cant just screw it out. You have to remove the frame, so that you can remove the set screw, and then pull out the LPR. And then when you put it back together, there is a chance that it will start to leak through the set screw, so you need to loctite that set screw, and then you end up waiting at least an hour or two before you can gas it up, and see if the problem with the LPR is fixed. So, basically, when the DM is working fine, it is great. As soon as you start to have issues, things go downhill. And trying to fix issues, sometimes creates new issues. (see the set screw for LPR)
However, you have a major advantage, in that it is a team gun. That means more support for you, and Oiva will likely be able to help you out.

The Clone is a love/hate relationship. When it works its pretty much the best shot ive ever felt. But troubleshooting it is a nightmare. A bazillion orings inside and out, and the bolt itself is 6-7 parts. And : MACDEV Y U NO HAVE AN LPR ON A $1250 GUN!

However, I am 90% sure that DM's have a color code in the grips. Like, you open up the grips (toolless on the DM12) and there is a little color chart in there. If not, you can always make one. Remembering how to do BPS might be a pain, though, since it isnt "1 blink is 1 BPS" it is "one blink is whatever the hell Dye decided was a good plan."

And for some reason the grips on the dm12 felt a bit to "squishy". Either that or im too used to man handeling the marker

Rumor has it that Macdev is making a new RX. If they make a Cyborg GT I will poop my pants
