But let’s calm down for a minute and take a proper look at this marker, so you know exactly what you get for your money here…

There is no doubt that you are getting a very high quality gun here with the Dye M2.

But it does come with a hefty price tag, so this is not a paintball gun for anyone less than the serious player, who understands and needs the range of features that it provides.

A detailed look at the Dye M2

A result of 12 years if development and re-engineering, the new Dye M2 offers superior performance, packaged in a very sleek design.

From a visual perspective, this gun looks incredible. But the beauty of the M2 is not just skin-deep, it dives deep into its core design as well.

Packed full of electrical features designed to add finesse to your game, the M2 marker is for the advanced player.

It allows you to make many adjustments to the gun as you need them, even if you are in the thick of a fast and furious game.

Its prism interface and five-way control joystick, for example, will improve its performance and accuracy, while its tech mat and rechargeable batteries will help you take care of the device.


As we’ve mentioned before, the Dye M2 is based on the DM series platform, but unlike other paintball guns in that series, it was re-engineered from the ground up to add several improvements.

Key features of the Dye M2

Here are several examples of the M2’s primary features.


Improved accuracy – This is largely thanks to DYE’s patented closed spool fuse bolt design, which operates at an extremely low 135 psi.

The resulting optimized air flow gives the M2 improved air efficiency and better accuracy, while the increased bolt speed allows for smooth bolt cycles and reduced recoil.

Electrical features – Another great feature of the Dye M2 is that it features well thought out electronic control systems.

These systems include internal pressure sensors, improved service systems, upgraded operational controls and of course the Method Operating System (MOS) itself.

Components, like the Prism Interface and a 1-inch full-color OLED screen, which are designed to improve the M2’s performance and accuracy by allowing users to update or fine-tune their performance settings whenever they need to do so.Dye-M2-2b-1

Other electronic features include rechargeable batteries, a five control joystick as well as a wireless control connection between the body and the frame.

All of these electronic features are not only designed to improve the M2’s performance, they can also help you maintain your M2’s more sensitive components.

It’s worth mentioning that the Dye M2 offers excellent handling thanks to its good craftsmanship and ergonomic design.

It can be used comfortably under many different circumstances.
