Dye's New Super Gun!!

The Dye 2010 NT!!
  • Boost Bolt Technology - no more LPR
  • Automatic valve shutoff
  • 130 psi operating pressure
  • 1500 - 1700 SPF per 68ci/4500psi tank
  • Adjustable bolt chamber volume
  • New Ultralite on/off ASA
  • Ultralite Reach trigger
  • Integrated rubber pads for better grip
  • Tool-less rubber grips
  • Tool-less clamping feedneck

I like the sleek new design. Looks so thin, it's almost like a Luxe don't you think. The nicest thing to me is probably the new on/off ASA. The macroline now connects to the front of the ASA, unlike previous models where the macroline is protruding from the side, which is the only thing i don't like about the DM9, tends to poke you in the wrist while shooting.

At only 1.6 lbs as claimed, this marker is ridiculously light. For comparison, the Dangerous Power G3, a marker known for its light weight, is 1.86 lbs.

From the video, it looks like the new clamping feedneck doesn't have the thumb screw anymore. I think it works kinda like Bob Long's, where you rotate the clamping lever to adjust the hold on the loader.

The new bolt system looks very complicated, but small. The backcap looks unique with the 3 allen screws, I wonder what it's for.

According to rumors online, the NT will not replace the DM series. There will still be a DM10. The NT series will be Dye's top-of-the-line luxury marker, much like the Planet Eclipse's SL series.
