Review: First off, I must say that this is by far Proto's best marker. What you are basically getting is a DM7, but smaller, with a Hyper 3 reg and fantastic design.
The milling is fantastic -- its appears to be designed to match the UL Frame grip modeling. The gap between the reg and barrel is about a finger size and allows for better control over the marker.
The Hyper 3 reg is fantastic. The ergonic design and rubber grips helps control even more.
The LPR is CRAZY small. It is mounted vertically right behind and above the reg (where the trigger guard meets the frame).
The UL Frame comes with a full NPPL, PSP, Millenium, and NXL mode settings.
It also comes with the self-cleaning eye system and spring detents.
I am still in the process of breaking in the reg, thus I can't really comment on effeciency (Proto claims it is 10% more effecient)...will post once I can get solid data
Conclusion: If you are looking at PM6,7 or a DM7,8 I would highly give this baby a look. What you are getting is a fantastic marker that has really raised the bar for Proto.
Nice review, I think it's the first player review I've seen on this marker. I will also be posting a review for this marker by the end of this week. All that I can add is that Proto recommends that High Pressure air systems are used with this marker, LP isn't bad, but they claim more efficiency can be had with HP.
That info concerning HP vs. LP comes from the gun techs at DYE/Proto.
