1. The Gun case

Dye display all in his gun box. It is always a neoprene case with a zipper. It is composed of 2 compartments composed of preformed foam. The first contains the M2 marker and the USB cable. The 2 ‘compartment contains 2 UL sockets (684 and 688), a grease tube, a tool kit, a part kit and a card. This card is a USB stick that contains the manual and the Dye catalog.

2. The ergonomic

The ergonomics is simply extraordinary. Naturally one places the thumb of the hand holding the regulator over the barrel. The space between the thumb and forefinger of the hand holding the frame fits perfectly into the notch of the handle. The trigger frame space is a good size and perfect shape. Its curved down portion allows you to pianotate on the tip of the trigger without bumping or cutting on the trigger frame.

Whether the regulator or the frame, the 2 are equipped with a grip. Only the grip of the regulator will require an allen key to be disassembled.

To disassemble the grip of the frame, you will need to force a little bit the first time. We recommend that you follow the instructions in the manual, they are perfectly accurate.

3. The barrel

 

The barrel remains the Dye Ultralight. It is in 2 rooms not to cocker. The M2 will be supplied with 2 sockets (688 and 684).

A 16 “front exists for sale.

4. The trigger

Simply said, the trigger of the M2 is a hell.

To remove the trigger, you will need to remove the grip to access the screw that passes through the trigger.

To adjust the trigger:

trigger 1 trigger 2
1 / Screw 1 sets the path forward.
2 / Screw 2 sets the path backwards.
IMG_5622
At most this life is screwed, at the most the journey backwards is reduced.

CAUTION if you reduce it too much, the trigger point will not be reached.

 

 

 

 

 

3 / Screw 3 adjusts the firing point on the switch.

This is difficult to access. We recommend removing the trigger and the handle for ease.

CAUTION it is a very small screw that acts on a magnet if you screw it or unscrew, there is too much risk to lose it.

 

 

 

4 / Screw 4 sets the angle at which the trigger blade is located without affecting the trigger activation point. It is simply impossible to reduce it to the minimum that the trigger would allow.

5. Feeder

The feeder has not undergone any evolution. It is still part of the body of the marker. The clamp is adjusted without tools just by tightening or unscrewing the clamp.

6. The eye system

The eye system has evolved somewhat. The eyes are always held in place by a half black circle that hold them in place. The diode cables in the M2 are extra short. They always pass through the same orifice and connect under the body of the M2 on an electronic board.

The eyes are always protected from the ball and dirt by an EYE PIPE that has a little advanced level. It is still as annoying to set up.

How to cut the eyes? Press the joystick down until the eye logo changes to red.

7. The air system

The air system is identical to the DM14. Just the valve or switch is more massive design.

The position of the ASA is adjusted by a screw on the front part. You will be able to adapt its position to one centimeter.

IMG_5633
To disassemble the ASA, you will have to disassemble the grip. Thus you will have access to the screw.

IMG_5630IMG_5631
Once the ASA is disassembled you will be able to access the red joint that joins the frame and the ASA.

8. The bolt

bolt

The bolt is composed of 4 pieces.

1 Cylinder. In this room it is essential to properly clean the orange seal (017 BN70). To clean it properly, it is essential to remove it carefully so you can clean it and its notch thoroughly.

3 Bolt with 2 Bolt sails (joints). To remove the bolt from the Cylinder, you will need to remove the blue seal in its front part.

4 Top Hat

5 Manifold with 6 Tool-less Back Cap which via a push button will allow you to pull out your bolt without tools.

Comments on the bolt of the M2, or the Tool-less back cap, c is quite the bolt of a DM9.

9. The LPR (low pressure regulator)

The LPR is pre-set to 65psi.

CAUTION Adjusting the LPR:

  • If set too high, you risk breaking your balls, increasing the kick and your air consumption.
  • If set too low, the M2 may not have enough air to keep its camping cycle.To properly adjust your LPR. Pressurize. Turn on your M2. Cut your eyes. Screw in your LPR screw. Unscrew until your bolt makes a full normal cycle and then unscrew 2 turns.

10. The solenoid

The solenoid is the same as the DYE NT. Underneath this one seal makes the seal with the body of the marker.

DYE does not advise to disassemble it as well as the eye system. In addition to that, they put a small sticker that is an insurance for the warranty.

The practical test

For those who knew him, the shot is very pocket of the DM9. This is a bell shot. The regularity is excellent. The kick and the noise are always the same.
The correct setting of your M2 is very important. An incorrectly set M2 will make a totally different sound.
