Review: the body is very very light. It also has a nice low profile and the feedneck doesn't stick up a mile like on the DM's, but does have the nice easy bolt removal like DM's and PM's

Trigger- its always about personal settings, but i never got it set like i wanted it to. I adjusted it but I couldn't get it the way i like. Over all it has a very heavy trigger pull. The trigger is made with a polymer/rubber mixture and can be bent almost at a 90 degree angle. The trigger is so flexible you can bend it up around the top of the trigger frame.( if you do this and it breaks don't blame me, i saw the guy in the proshop do it before i bought it.) But obviously with a trigger like that it feels like rubber(duh) and i wasn't a fan of that at all. but once again you decide.

efficiency- wasn't too bad on my 45/45 right out of the box with factory settings.
Conclusion: if your starting on the tournament level then this is a great gun for you to get. not too expensive, nice, neat looking, and just all around a decent gun. I definitely recommend starting with one of these before you get spoiled on more expensive high end markers to hate everything about cheap high ends.

This gun isn't very load and if you buy any dye or proto gun you have to mess with the board to change and ajust settings, and tell how it shoots.

It may be a tiny bit loader than the $1200 DM6 but when your playing in a turniment and people are yelling and 10-14 people are shooting at each other, if this gun is a little loader it doesn't matter much.

what are you talking about? I guess you mean louder...not loader...and no the DM6 is nowhere near as loud as the PMR

Yea, but by saying this, your basically saying that the loudness of a gun means nothing(which i agree with), a loud tippmann isn't so loud that it stops you from hearing other people yelling. . .

and loudness can also mean bad air efficency

it doesn't have a heavy trigger pull on mine if you blow it it can fire. Andf the trigger will only bend if you really force it to bend and you would only do that if you wanted to find a fault with the PMR

if you blow on it??? if thats not shenanigans then you need to let me know how you did that

Your an ARTARD. First of all your not going to pull the trigger so hard that it bends. Second of all, the loudness doesn't matter in in a game it's not going to be so loud you cant here someone yelling. So just go home and stopp ruinning this website for everybody else. Also in your Similar Products you put an EGO and an Ion is simialr to this gun. An Ion is nowhere comparable to an EGO.
