Review: I bought this back when the Rail was just released and this set me back $500. Kinda Sucks. oh well, I needed an upgrade from my Autococker to supplement my snake playing skills.

Price: AT the time, the rail seemed like a bargain. Now, the price is ridiculous at only $285 brand new. In this package comes the consistency and speed of a top level gun like the DMs and PMs. Coming from this proven family the PMR is no exception.

simplicity: Straight out of the box, all you need is a fast loader, and a compressed air tank. The board has a few different moses that are easy enough to change through, though require you to open the grips. Not really a problem as I usually just play in semi (why ramp in practice). The nicest part about the gun is that as long as the eyes see a paintball, and there is gas, the marker will shoot.

Noise: Dye markers have been know for their quiet operation as are most spool valve markers. Though having no LPR makes the Rail slightly louder, it is not really noticeable. Having a 2 piece 14" barrel come stock with the LE version is a big plus and also reduces the noise factor.

Accuracy: I can honestly say that I have never actually played a game with the stock 2 piece. I have shot paint through it in my backyard for testing and calculations though. At about 100 ft with good paint, the rail held a 6" pattern even while shooting ropes. Adding the Freak to it makes the grouping even smaller.

Weight: This is honestly one of the lightest markers I have ever played with. The frame is a "plastic" material that severely cuts down on the weight making snapping a breeze.


Many people told me to get a UL frame for it, but my hands are larger then most and the UL frame does not sit quite right in my hands. I instead bout the UL trigger which severely shortened the length in which my hand was stretched out across the frame to the trigger compared to the swooped forward design of the stock one.

CONS
Efficiency: This, like most other spool valve guns is not the greatest when it comes to the air department. Although consistent, when set up to shoot 295 the gun at through a 68/4000 fill in just a VLjr and 5 pods. If you do need that extra pod or two, spring for either a tub of hater sauce, or just lower the dwell and velocity. All three make a noticable improvement. (2VLjrs and 8pods on a 68/4500)
Conclusion: A great start up gun for the emerging player that is affordable and gives anyone the potential to shoot ridiculously fast. Many of the other players on my team have these as back ups. I am personally a believer in DYE/ PROTO now and will stay with them until convinced otherwise.
