Review: This gun is pretty amazing. It is extrememly accuate, Very fast, and most importatnly, very consistant.

Previously I owned a completely decked ion (virtue board, freak barrel system, QEV, Firebolt, clamping feedneck, on/off, body-kit, etc.) and this rail outperforms it stock.

For $400 you get a gun that you can litterally pull out of the box, and walk onto the field with no aftermarket parts or upgrades and play with the best.

With that said, some upgrades some might want to consider (but that are not nec.) are a clamping feedneck (the feedneck on it adjusts with a hex key, but as you only take your hopper on/off once or twice a day, no biggie - I'll keep the stock on). a drop for personal preference of bottle placement. An on/off (though not at all necessary). A barrel (the stock one is quick accurate, but only 1 piece and an odd 11" - I'm just too anal for a stock barrel). and a new Trigger.

EXPLAINATION OF KEY WEAKNESSES:
1. Bolt cap: The bolt cap can't be tightened too much or you will strip the threads. Noticing that, I finger tightened it good and snug and took off to play. Problem is, at finger tight, when you get on the gun real hard (raming or walking) that cap will back out and allow air to shoot out the bolt cap (screwing up accuracy, consistancy, and turning this very air efficient machine into a gas hog). So, don't over-tighten it, but you need to cinch it down with a hex key - finger tight will only cause headaches.
2. Trigger. The trigger isn't bad, it's mostly personal preference. For rampers, the rubber grips will be wonderful - with or without gloves. But for those of us who love to walk, the rubber sticky grips are hendering and the slop is a little much (though I can still walk it at 17bps very easily).
3. Grips: This is worth noting. the PMR does NOT take standard 45 grips. The screw wholes line up, but the grips are actually taller and wider then 45 grips. Soooo, at this time, there are NO (0, zilch, nada) other grips available for these guns.


Conclusion: An excellent product at an excellent price.
Very consitant, very accurate, VERY light.
Able to shoot right out of the box.
I would highly recommend it. I have an ion with MORE money in it then the rail, and the rail is night and day better
