thanks that answer that question! I only use semi and 3 shot anyways. Maybe i can get a new mag without the mold issues.

IIRC they said they would swap them out.

sticky mags

I work and play for DYE. I've told them with poly mags your going to have that happen . it happens with my real ar mags more often then not. all you do is sand down the high spots I suggest a bench top belt sander.

I think you mean all DYE needs to do is sand down the high spots with a top belt sander.

sanding down mags

well if you already have them it's just an easy fix. and it's going to be a case to case or individual marker to mag issue. what will be fine in one will be a little tight in the other. with the plastic mags you might even notice a difference on hot dry days opposed to cold and wet. all the materials expends and contracts with the weather at different rates. I'm sure some of the folk on here have had experience with delrin bolt stick from temperature and humidity changes. or there marker just was not working right that day and could not figure out why.

First impression

I just got home after voteing and my DAM was waiting for me. Opened it like a kid at Xmas.

I have not shot it yet but I am impressed with it so far. Lighter than I thought it would be with all the stock shrouds and parts on it.

the red dot sight included works ok in my kitchen. Will have to dig out a armson and compare but better than what the comments about it had me believing.

I really like the feel of this in my hands and the build quality seems top notch. Very solid feel.

Magazine design is very nice. Someone requested a size on it and the ones that came with it measure as follows

Height 6inch Width is 2 5/8inch and depth is 1 and 1/8. These are rough measures and I did not measure at the ridges and bumps and did not have caliper so consider these very rough.

Ooh, marketing opportunity. "Dye Tactical Sandpaper Upgrade Kit"



Dye blog states that the marker is 4.76lbs w/o magazine.

Since it's still hard to find fields and scenario games where First Strike rounds are allowed, is DYE doing anything to push for more fields to accept FS rounds? The DYE DAM is an awesome piece of technology and very versatile. If I am going to invest in this gun, I want to use it to its full potential.
