Upgrades:
Trigger and on/off asa . The trigger looks nice but kinda hooks forward to much in my opinion. UL frame and virtue laser eyes maybe.
Strengths: metal upgrades that make it an SE
Two-piece 14" barrel
light
Ease of maintenance

Weaknesses: Is a little bit of a gas hog. Not too big a deal though.
Review: Got this a few months back and so far I love it. I really like the camo(makes it look different than the other PMR's). Absolutely no chops. No blown or bad o-rings as of yet (thankfully). Shoots great. The barrel that comes with it is pretty good too. It's basically a UL barrel with a different front and proto milled into it. This barrel and UL barrel will interchange so you can get a different UL back size if you like. I use the Proto barrel when I'm using a mixture of paint(different sizes) but use my Revolver kit otherwise.

It does indeed have a "secret" mode for shooting full auto. I've mostly used it in "semi" and PSP mode. It's there if you want it though.

Maintenance is very important with this type of marker be sure to check the bolt and grease when needed. If you do this regularly you shouldn't have any major issues. Plus it's very easy.

edit: Picked up a CP Rake trigger today. Right out the gate I liked it better than the stock SE's. With a little adjustment it should be just right.

Update 6/3/08: Still loving the rail. Haven't had to replace a single o-ring. I've replaced the stock frame with New Designz pro-lite frame. Really like it by the way. I'd give it, the pmr, a 10 if it were a little more efficient but since it loves air I'll say 9. Great marker. Would definitely recommend.



Conclusion: Great marker in my opinion. You would have to spend a lot more money to get a better marker right out of the box and much better value than the normal PMR.
