Review: [*]= 1) The PMR manual says there's only semi-auto, PSP, and Millennium fire modes, but it also has NXL full auto. NXL is where the manual would say Value 4, so just tap the trigger 4 times to check it out. Really, overall i'm super impressed with the PMR's board. Its got a setting combo for everyone.

2) Some PMR guns (including the special editions) out of the factory didn't get the right amount of thread sealant or whatever on the Passage Blocking Screw. If you didn't feel like you had someone blowing in your face when you shot the PMR, then you're probably ok. I've got the leak on mine so i've gotta drag my butt to the local shop to get it fixed right.

PROTO=DYE AND THE PMR IS AT A GREAT PRICE FOR ITS QUALITY!
Conclusion: I AM IN LOVE WITH MY NEW PMR SE! Even with the leak, i went through three pods of year old paint and didn't chop a ball at 20bps. The PMR is a fantastic gun, and the best gun out there for it's price. I really don't think you can find a better brand new gun for 275, correct me if i'm wrong. However, i would also say this gun isn't for people new to the sport. In cleaning and maintaining the gun, you need to know what you're doing so you don't screw anything up. I'll give it a 9 because the air leak is a bummer if you have it.

i am getting this gun soon. and i was wondering if you have to lube it before you play? i want to know ahead of time.

i actually never lubed it before my first day of using it. when you get it go ahead and take out the bolt and check to see how much factory lube is on it. mine had plenty. the only thing i can think of as far as lube goes is if you're playing on fields with alot of dust or fine dirt/sand is to at some break point during the time you're playing ( like at a lunch break or something) clean off the bolt and reapply some dye stick lube which comes in the box with the gun.
you're gonna love it, i haven't broken a ball since i got it.

i bought it at actionvillage.com. now the only pmr se you can get is camo and its a preorder. they want 319.95 for it. they have regular pmr's for 274, but i'm sure you can a pmr se somewhere else online for around that too. i probably just got lucky with the right time at the right place thing.
