Bob long g6r vs dye DM12

15 May 2013 - 01:25 PM

I'm Looking for a new marker this summer and was just wondering peoples opinions on the two.

Is it as simple as spool vs poppit or is it more complicated than that.

Also is it worth paying extra for a 2012 g6r over the 2011.

Edit: i am very familiar with the DM line but not so much with Bob long.

shitty CA laws

18 April 2013 - 11:11 PM

OK first off I am 21 and I went to a grocery store to pick up a 12 pack with my 2 roommates who are both 20. We decided to all get our grocery shopping done with one trip which is why they were with me. We payed separately but because they were with me they asked to see all 3 of our id's. They said that when there is a group of 3 or more that appear to be under 40 they must all be carded.

I explained I was the only one who was purchasing the beer and they just happened to take a trip to the grocery store with me. They denied me so they went back to the car and I bought it by myself in a different checkout line.

This shows this "law" does nothing but inconvenience at best. I can see politicians mean well but stupid laws like this do nothing at all.

What if a father bought alcohol with his children next to him would they card the children because they appear to be under 40. Does anyone else think this is stupid?

Rendition Magnet Trigger Kits

01 April 2013 - 05:32 PM

Does anyone know how to still get one?

I know Mike no longer sells these on eBay and haven't heard any talk about them for a while.

I was looking for one for my pm8. If you have one or had a trigger kit in the past can you comment on how it felt versus your stock trigger and if you felt it was worth it. Thanks.

DYE UL Barrel

30 March 2013 - 08:41 PM

Ok so Ive had this barrel for a while now and its never given me any problems but I have noticed a few differences.

First one is that it is rethreaded to cocker threads (obvious). Which I am aware that rethreaded barrels have been produced.

The second thing I noticed is that it says "ultralite" under the barrel instead of "UL" next to the DYE logo like all UL barrels ive seen.

The third thing I noticed is that the tip only has 4 holes instead of the much more commom UL tips that have 5 holes.

Last is that the tip seems dust brown instead of dust black. Did DYE ever make a dust brown tip?

Do all of these things mean my barrel is fake? I am unsure since the barrel is literally mirror smooth on the inside.

Also have paintball caddy, pods, barrel swabs and things of that nature

So that's where I stand currently

Things I want to buy/upgrade (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER)

1. Dye C10 knee pads
2. Dye C8 elbow pads/PE 2013 elbow pads
3. Dye lockdown feedneck collar
4. Dye I3/ Empire E-vents/ Proto Axis Pro/ V-force profiler (I do have a larger head)
