L7 bolt from TechT (better efficiency)
Barrel (will explain in body)
Today i pick up this marker, a empire 7 piece barrel kit, i3 goggles, and an empire harrness ( i will post reviews on those as well) off a craigs listing...i couldn't be happier about the purchase! when i got home i loaded up a hopper, gassed it up and lit up a show-box size piece of ply-wood.
before i go any further, i want to state that the only upgrade is the red laser eyes.
First Impressions - No kick. the stood steady in my hands as i laid ropes down. also
deadly accurate, ball after ball right on top of each other, with the empire barrel kit. the stock barrel (which i had one from a different marker) is accurate, and great for getting use to the gun, but i highly recommend getting a barrel kit. your opponents won't thank me for it, lol. the consistency is spectacular on this marker. the hyper2 is a real gem, and its very easy to adjust. the fuse bolt is rock solid, but i would recommend a L7 bolt from TechT to lighten the marker up even more and to squeeze a few more shots from your tank. In my Ion i gained about 300 more shots just by switching to a L7 bolt. after abut 3 pods of paint, the marker was still clean. no chops in the breach or barrel. definitely a plus.
Cleaning - as i do after every use of a marker, i tore it down to clean, and in this case, learn how stuff is put together in this marker. all i can say is wow on the cleaning factor. easy as pie to a fat kid. and with the manual, there should be no reason for confusion when working on this marker. i've never owned a dye marker before (just played with) and now i can tear everything from the bolt to the regulators down with ease. i wish every single paintball company would take a lesson from dye on the manual quality, and a few on the marker itself.
like i said before i couldn't be happier with this marker. there is no reason to pass up this marker if u have a chance to get it, the only difference from the pm7 and the pm8 is the ul frame, and there going for as low as 50 on ebay. GET THIS MARKER!
i give it a 9.99, only because nothing is perfect. but since pbreview only works on whole numbers, i give it a 9
