Recommended
Upgrades:
The only problem I had was with the feed neck, with the hopper not securing very tight. Not sure where this problem originates, but the only upgrade I can think of would be a new clamping feed neck.
Strengths: Light
Fast Trigger
FAST Cycles
Doesn't Chop
Beautiful Milling
Weaknesses: Feedneck
Review: -Feedneck: Back to the feedneck, that's the only thing that threw me for a loop, my EvoII would only tighten down so far, but would still spin and even popped off once. The HALO B we put on it later stayed on a bit better, I'm not sure what the deal is with this, but I'll be working with it.

-Kick: What kick?

-Consistancy: I shot 254 255 257 all night long, only had to set it once (in the beginning of the tournament), didn't touch the reg again.

-Accuracy: Ropes are fairly accurate... but I had to use the stock barrel as I don't have a freak back with cocker threads to use on it.

-Chopping: I did not chop one ball. Not ONE. I don't even think I had one that broke in the barrel. Good paint, Xball Silver. Eyes work flawlessly. I probably put about a case through it last night, definitely didn't shoot enough.

-Weight: The gun is 3lbs 2oz out of the box with the bottom line and the barrel. After I added my brick for a tank, the Evo, and paint, it got somewhat hefty. It's not a shocker though, so, it's fairly light compared to many.

-Trigger Guard: I got a number of comments on how huge the trigger guard is, and it is rather massive. I tried the whole 3 finger shooting thing, but I haven't gotten that down quite right. Two fingers suited me well.

Other stuff:
-No Shootdown
-No Bounce

She rips.
Conclusion: A huge jump up from my TES, and I'm VERY happy with the product. It's delivered all I could ever want.

I too had this problem with the feed neck,,,,in reality the feed neck does "clamp" the loader but the feed neck assembly and the loader turn together!!!!!!The neck assembly threads on to the body and can come loose making the hopper turn and creating the illusion that the clamp is not holding the it place. What I did was unscrew the hole neck assembly of from the body added some (temporary) thread lock to the bottom of the neck assembly (where it threads to the body).... reassemble and let it dry. This fixed my problem but check closely to see where the hopper is turning from!

how much does the nme weigh does it weigh lighter than a shocker sft? and is the trigger easy to walk because it doesnt look like it it looks stiff.

My friend puts duck tape around the feed neck of his 04. It works really well but a b**** to put on and take off. LOL

Well im pretty new to 20bps guns but i can guarantee this thing has a very light and short pull on the trigger. And compared to my X-5 this thing is weightless.

It would be close depending on the mode you set the guns on. If you shot them both on true semi for the first time I would have to say fly cause they shoot pretty quick.

www.ebay.com is your best friend

I recommend getting the LE version, might as well dish out the extra cash :/

hey Ballinvincent it is not close to the shocker .I personally own a PM6, shocker, and nme. the nme is the heaviest due to probably i have the ultralite frame on my proto. but wslking wise it is easy, anyone can walk on this gun!!!

I would recommend buying one soon.
