Most Stuff For The Price.

Well, for the price, this markers speed is unbelievable. Equipped with a PM7's board making it extremely fast and capable of suiting a normal players needs. It has Semi, PSP, and Millenium modes (Also NXL, which is not said in the manual - Thanks bigwood212) on it which is enough for me, as I only use Semi. While on the speed topic let me say the Eyes work very well. I would Not recommend using this gun with horrible paint (Most Diablo Paints work well in mine) or the eyes will become useless. Overall this gun is very fast stock.
Despite what most people say about the plastic parts, they really aren't that bad. I would fully recommend switching out the Trigger and Bolt Cap, as those 2 are the worst of the plastic parts. Besides that the gun seems pretty sturdy. If you are a person who cant stand the plastic you could get parts to change them out on everything which I am currently doing slowly but surely.
Noise and Kick
After having quiet some experience with other DM's and Mostly a PM6, I am sad to say this is the oddball in the matrix family. Loosing the PMR seems to have increased the kick and noise greatly in my perspective. Not to worry, im just pointing out the increase. If you come from blow back guns, other mid ends, or even high end ram driven guns (Egos, Timmy's) this gun would feel like that.
Weight and Feel
One thing that draws the crowds into this gun is the weight.....im pretty sure you have heard someone say WOW THIS IS LIGHT!, Believe them.....due to a lack of aluminum this has lost quite a bit of weight from its older brothers and sisters. The Feel of course is all personal preference, I myself....hate the frame. Another upgrade im looking to purchase the NDZ Pro-lite Frame, as the plastic frame and rubber lining doesn't really appeal to me. Your choice your choice!
Accuracy and Consistency
Im a believer in that every paintball gun has the same accuracy as the next with the exception of brass eagle walmart guns...just because I feel like saying they suck. So of course...this marker shoots pretty accurate which is good. Now im not going to lie and say I had 1 +/- consistency because I don't, but closely enough which surprised me I did have some pretty nice groupings, Most Shots were within about 6+/- of each other which at different times can be better than my ETek (Thannnk you Diablo Nightmare). So all this is good, as most properly used markers should be.
Well the PMR looks like the PM6 and extremely similar to the PM7, which is very small and sleek looking. A few tiny minor things I would change is put the serial number on the side of the frame in a different place, such as the grips or inside the frame. Another is when I got my PMR their was a peice chipped off of the back cap. Both these are no real biggy.
Bad! Bad! Bad! For me I am NOT used to having to refill my tank after each game coming from using my ETek. I only get like Hopper and 2 or 3 pods which to me isn't very good. If you have a all-day air station then that will be good for you but if not then you might have to put in a little extra $$ for more fills.
Reliability & Maintenance
As a backup this gun should be very reliable so I can count on it when my ETek breaks down (Very Rarely). So far it hasn't had many problems so that's good, but im sure Ill be bound to run into some eventually. The maintenance is not a cheerful event but it isn't unbearable. Lots of O-rings and the PMR uses lots of lube, doesn't take to long to clean.
With all my Planet Eclipse products the packaging is beyond extremely perfect but with the PMR its not bad. Comes in cardboard and has protection on the inside. Comes with the manual (Which is pretty good), Barrel Sock (Whatever), Lube (Not alot but it works for a while), and of course the barrel and gun.
Overall its a satisfactory gun with a nice price tag on it, Id recommend it to most people.
If you feel I should add something put a comment and I will do so.
