Review: I picked up the PM6 because I have had my eye on it for quite some time. It was between the DM6, 06 Ego, and the PM6. The PM6 was just the cheaper of all 3, but I am very glad I bought it out of the 3 and I will explain later. Best upgrade you can put on your PM6 is a UL frame. It adds a new trigger, board,and far better feel. LED lights are great , and it imporves the overall look of the marker drastically. Now the reason I prefer the PM6 over the DM6 is that once you put a UL frame on it, the differences start to seem a lot less imprtant. Self Cleaning eyes, lighter, and stock UL barrel are what the DM6 enjoys, PM6 is in fact shorter, and I preferred the LPR in the front, so it was an obvious win. After testing Ego's I found them to be less accurate than my PM, albeit faster, so its really what your looking for, I did not extensivly test the differences however. Now for the review itself.

PM6

Strengths:
Weight- This marker is incredibly light and you will notice that the second you hold it, also very compact.
Speed- I found the speed to be the same as the majority of all highend markers, it can ramp easily up to 20 BPS, and probably more.
Accuracy- Fitted with the right barrel, and I dont care for the stock one, this thing can be deadly. Dye Ultralite is my recommendation.
Milling- Absolutly stunning
Adjustability- LPR and HPR, adjust to have the right velocity with no kick
Kick- None
Maintenance- Very minor, Ive never had my marker go down seriously yet, only problem was leak out the back and I just swapped out the O-rings.
Stock locking feedneck is a nice add on, dont need to upgrade.

Weaknesses:
Trigger- Stock trigger I strongly dislike, just save up and get a UL frame, worth the money.
Efficiency- As well all spool valve markers the efficiency could be better, I get 8 pods on a 4000 PSI fill with a 68ci tank, which really isnt all that bad.
Conclusion: The PM6 is a real winner, especially with the UL frame. You see the pros using them and now you know why. I would not hesitate to buy this marker, you wont regret it.
