Review: The lasoya PM is a very good gun for someone looking for a competitive tournament level gun, its not quite as light as the ion but close, i think it looks better though, everyone has an ion so i had to go with something different. the lasoya was only 200 dollars when i bought it which is an AWESOME price for this marker. when I aired it up for the first time it shot pretty well but I was using a ricochet apache hopper with it so it was not shooting as fast as it could, I went out and bought the halo B loader, this gun will keep up with any of them, i put it on uncapped ramping and unloaded the entire hopper in roughly 7 seconds, this is faster than any gun I have ever shot. I didn't like the regulator though, i thought it was very inconsistent but then again that's my opinion, other people love the regulator, its mainly personal preference, I bought the CP low pressure regulator and it works excellent. the stock barrel is decent but kind of loud, I bought the Freak jr Barrel which works excellent also. This gun comes apart very easily and is easily cleaned. the feedneck is a MUST have though i did not have a hopper that would fit the stock neck because its so small. if you buy an aftermarket feedneck make SURE that you get an ICD/ BUSHMASTER threaded feedneck, some people say impulse or ion threaded feed necks will work but they actually strip out your threads. The stock trigger looks like it sucks but once you use it for a while it works very well and is easy to walk extremely fast. The stock board is pretty good it has a lot of nice setting that you can tweak with to make the gun perform better, it is a little bit of a pain though because of the 4 dip switches. if you try to read the manual that it comes with to program the board you will die before you will figure out what it means, go to icdpaintball.com and click on support from there you can look at the lasoya promaster board programming quick reference which makes it easy to change the board settings if you just read the instructions on there. If you do decide to buy this marker don't use a cheap hopper, to get the full potential out of this gun you have to use a true force feed hopper with 20+bps.
***UPDATE***
I just recently played with my gun in some actual rec games against a lot of other people. Everybody was asking what kind of gun I had, some though it was an alien interceptor, and some others thought it was an ego, when I told them that I only paid 200 dollars for it they were stunned, everybody who looked at it and seen it shoot absolutely loved it and wanted to get one. I shot roughly 5500 paintballs that day and did not chop even 1 paintball!! I am used to at least 5-10 chops per day with my spyder. I was also shooting faster than most people on the field, the only people that could keep up with my rate of fire was people with Proto rails and a few guys with dm5's and egos. This gun performed excellent and I wouldn't trade it for anything. the only downfall is that you can use TOO many paintballs and use TOO much air. every round I used my entire hopper + 3 pods and used all the air in my tank, it goes pretty quick, (especially when your ramping.)
Conclusion: I would recommend this product to anyone, and now for only $200 this is a crazy price for such an excellent gun, this gun out shoots anything in its price range, including the ION or any spyder. Don't get me wrong the ion is an excellent gun for its price but it cant really compete with the lasoya PM. I give this gun a 9 just because nothing is absolutely perfect but this gun comes close. **UPDATE** This gun worked awesome and it deserves nothing less than a 10, by far the best gun I have ever used, consistent, extremely fast, no chops, looks great, very light. Great price What more could you want!!???
