Smart Parts Shocker
Stock Black PM6, 14'' Empire barrel, Halo B w/ Victory board and rip drive, 68/4500 Pure Energy tank
CP On/Off (read in body)
None of these are REALLY necessary but, they will help.
Price (not TOO pricey though)
So, I bought my PM6 two days ago, and was very excited, because it was my only gun to have ever been bought brand new. (I'm tight with my cash). So, I figured, "Great! It won't be broken as soon as I get it like my other used guns that I got. Well I was wrong. I brought it out to the field and began to screw my tank into it. Everything goes good, I had heard that people with crossfire tanks had trouble with the threading, but my Pure Energy went in perfectly. Heres where the trouble begins. I screw in the On/off at the front of the stock ASA, and I begin to hear a hissing. The further I turn the ASA On, the louder the leaking gets, until I have it all the way on and air is just shooting out of it. So I'm thinking, "Great, brand new and its already breaking on me." So I go and get a CP from the field owner. Problem solved. I go to chrono, shooting 280, 275, 281, 272. So it's shooting good out of box, could be a little more consistant, but, I still need to break in the reg, so thats very good. So, I go and play with it. Shoots very nice and smooth. I liked it much more than my timmy or my shocker. Then it realize something, my feedneck is spinning around like crazy. And by feedneck, I don't mean the clamping part, I mean the actual whole feedneck peice is flailing around. So, I go to the owner of the field/shop (who's store I bought this from) and show him the problem. We look at it, and basically the threads on the feedneck aren't matching with the threads in the gun. Just great. So he tells me to come back the next day and they will fix it all (ASA and Feedneck) for free. Well thats good, but I'm still not impressed how this brand new gun broke on me in two ways, in the first day it had been out of its box. I'm a little disappointed because I've heard very good things about DYE's products, and how they work so perfectly.
Overall, gun shoots great... when it worked. The problems with the feedneck and ASA really annoyed me. I will be getting them fixed, and only rating the gun on how it shot though, because I'm sure my experience with this gun only happens to 1 in about 100 people. Maybe less. I also wouldn't want to ruin this gun's rating, because it really does rock, when it actually worked..... sooo... I'll take off half a point for each of the ways the
factory made errors. Still, it's a great gun. Once I get it fixed and shoot it again I may change it to a ten... depending on how well it shoots.
EDIT: Got it fixed, and played with it today. Shot great, used Rec paint and never chopped (well once but that was my fault not the guns). Shot very smooth.. very nice. I'm impressed.. therefore the score is changed to a 10.
10 out of 10

Not sure what the issue was with your M6. But one thing I do know is that DYE makes awesome markers. I personally own 2 DM4s and 2 Protos; and have never had any issues with them. EVER!!! Most of the ppl where I play use the DYE markers and none of them have had the problems you did. Sorry for the mishaps, but to knock a marker for something that can be caused by mishandling during shipping or even the dealer, is wrong. One question I have for you, did the M6 still have the plastic wrap on the box when you got it from the dealer? If not, that may be the answer to you problems... Just an idea, not a blame!
Guys, chill. He said it deserved a ten for how it shot. Part of a review can include this kind of experience! Maybe it'll happen once every thousand markers, maybe less, but it still happened, and therefore it can be included. This story is believable. If he said the whole gun exploded, we could dispute it, but he listed two weak points of just about any marker.
People, you don't have to lash out every time someone gives your marker a rating less than absolutely perfect.
Just saying that if one out of even a thousand PM6's made has factory-made problems.. they aren't perfect and don't deserve a 10 out of 10... when its fixed and if the shooting really deserves a 10.. then I'll edit it.
i agree. Luckily u still had the 90 day warrenty for parts from the factory so he were fine. The same happened with my autococker. I sent it to the factory and just said FIX IT and i told them the problem. Came back PERFECT. I hope urs gets fixed too.
