Given how much more complex the DAM mags are compared to the other ones, taking into account that they are so much cheaper than the competition, I have to assume that the price of the marker compensates for the loss in profits on the mags.
If DYE were to sell the DAM cheaper, they'd have to raise the price on the mags.

i still dont have $1300 to spend on a marker, but if i had the budget, i wouldnt think twice about picking one of these up.
