Review: I bought this gun for $130!!! It was on sale, but I'm sure you can find it for $150. Anyways, this gun is very quiet compared to most blowback markers for a couple reasons, 1)Flush Cocking (no external moving parts), and 2) It is built for low pressure
(compared to other blowback guns) out of the box. With capabilities of 20+ BPS, it is a fast gun. The detonator reg, worth $50 alone is a huge improvement over any stock reg, and it greatly improves consistency, and air efficiency. With a new barrel, this gun is very accurate. The trigger is iffy, but PMI expects you to buy an aftermarket trigger, so they use a cheap one to keep their costs down. This gun has breakbeam eyes installed, something you rarely see on a blowback marker, which is great, you will almost never chop a ball. Out of the 4000 rounds I've already put through it, none chopped, at all. Finally, and most importantly, PMI has EXCELLENT customer service, if anything ever goes wrong, they can help, whether it can be fixed, or you need a new gun, PMI is there for you, and will most likely replace your gun free of charge. Not that you'll ever need to.
Conclusion: Overall this is a great gun for beginers, or a great backup for experienced players. PMI has really created a quality product here. I would recomend this gun for anyone.

What would be a good hopper for this gun. All I have is a Gravity Feed, V&L hopper that does 8-10 bps, and im thinking of getting an egg, but i dont want to waist 70 bucks if i dont need one.

It all depends on how fast you pull the trigger, if its anywhere under 15 then a revvy, ricochet 2kX, or a Halo TSA hopper is your best choice. If you never want a misfeed then an egg2 is a good choice...besides they're cheaper now due to the coming of the egg3.

With stock trigger can you still double tap or roll your gun pretty fast? I am thinking about buying this gun and i would like to know. Thanks
