My gun:
Pm7
every single upp you can get except a new bolt (for now)

what's it missing? The god damn trigger post travel adjustment screw. The stock reach trigger isn't very good to begin with, and if it's missing a screw it's worst than my Spyder trigger. I can BARELY get above 11 bps on it. No biggie right? I'll just order a new one from Dye!
NOPE!
the screw is $2 but effing shipping is $13?! For real? It does NOT cost $13 to put a screw in an envelope and mail it across the country!
What. The. Literal. Fuck. I went to both shops in my area and neither of them have the individual screw. One had a dm9 parts kit for $45 that contained the screw, but I'm not THAT desperate. For the life of me I cannot find a single online store that has just the screw. I feel like once I do find somewhere that does, they're gonna ream me out for shipping just like Dye.

Fucking Dye! I love their high end and mid range markers, but they charge wayy to much for everything!
I mean I probably could call them up and they might give me a reasonable shipping charge, but I feel like they're just doing it to make it worth it to sell one tiny item.

Agh well I love this gun too much, it just has a terrible trigger that's missing screws.
TL;DR I have first world problems and can't find the Dye trigger adjustment cam screw for a reasonable price

Was this one their website or did you call? I usually call and they charge me $1 for shipping with small items.

Edit: Saw you haven't called yet.. They are really easy to deal with on the phone, try it tomorrow.

Go on the nation and ask in the proto forum what the dimensions of the screw are. They will likely know there.

I LOVE YOU
lol just kidding
But I'm probably going to call then, because I only looked on their website. Last time I dealt with dye on the phone they were pretty good to me.

I guess people don't understand that the post travel adjustment screw isn't a normal screw you can get at a hardware store lol... It has a long cone shape milled on the end of it, to match the ramp on the trigger, to make the adjustments. Just FYI for those who don't know. I second calling up dye. That shipping charge is ridiculous.

They usually are standard screws. There's no head and it's a hex key, and it has standard threads. You can buy them at hardware stores. I bought some there recently to use as set screws in a custom mech-ion I built myself.

My teammate needs to get a new Dye jewel for the DM9 I sold him. Cost: $1.50. Shipping: $16. That shit can fit in a $.47 envelope for fucks sake
