made by dye
I got this gun from a local shop for $274 used with a UL frame, CP reg and NDZ aluminum feedneck, and a aluminum backcap. I went in the shop looking for the Special editon but found this instead. When i got home and Fired it up, I was suprised at how FAST this gun was shooting. and when i put it into millenium mode... jeez, all im gonna say is i woudnt want to be at the other end of this marker. I love my PMR and love how far my $274 dollars took me.
dm6(not mine) smart parts epiphany(not mine)
proto rail, freak back all american front, vlocity
new back cap, on/off and from there w/e you want
Light, fast, durable
back cap and no on off. Eats air
Well, When i first got this gun i pulled it out of the box and go to shoot, blah, nothing.
So i take it to my local shop so they could fix it,
when i get the gun back and go to fire it again, Wow amazing. The gun is very quick stock and very light. It comes with a pretty accurate stock barrel and the board shoots up to 30 bps. Only downside is theres 3 modes(semi, psp ramping, and millenium)
Everyone says that this gun needs a new feed neck and that it cracks, well ive had no problem yet and it holds better than i thought it would, you can actully hold the gun by the hopper and the gun wont drop. Only downside ive noticed yet is that it emptys a air tank rather fast so its kinda a air hog. but other then that if you have 400 dollars and want a good gun. go for it
If your looking for a good gun thats not to high priced and works very well, get it
maybe a ul barrel...thats about it this gun is perfect stock
Polymer on the trigger but it doesnt bother me at all
This is amazing. Proto has done an unbelievable job on this. SOO EASY TO PROGRAM BOARD AND TO DISASSEMBLE! Wow, if you dont get this gun at this price, you are retarded. Get this for a backup or for a novice-intermediate player. Dont even think about the ion anymore, the pmr owns it for just 200$ more. YOU CAN RAMP AT 30 BPS !!!!!!!!!!!!!
but dont do it ramping is for noobs but its fun to ramp dry fire =)
GET THIS GUN and a pulse or Vlocity or Halo B/rip or even an Egg 3.
This gun is perfect for tournament play.

Freaking fast, extremely versitile board, amazing gun for the Price, accurate, consistent
None that I have found I guess the bolt that's about it
First time to use the gun i was very impressed it definitely keeps up with the expensive markers i would recommend this gun for any type of player it is extremely accurate and fast right out of the box.....all around great gun....it is a complete head turner and you wouldn't expect such a great gun for that price.....it is just lk the pm6 or pm7 no kidding!
I would say that anyone should buy this gun....No matter what skill level

matte black PMR all stock
45/45 pure energy tank
smoke pulse hopper but no rf chip yet
on off/ new rail
new feedneck and trigger(if even made yet) if you dont like the polymer rubber feeling
Maybe a UL frame if your into that.
cocker threads (my favorrrite)
Trigger (see review)
Hard to mess with board
the body is very very light. It also has a nice low profile and the feedneck doesn't stick up a mile like on the DM's, but does have the nice easy bolt removal like DM's and PM's
Trigger- its always about personal settings, but i never got it set like i wanted it to. I adjusted it but I couldn't get it the way i like. Over all it has a very heavy trigger pull. The trigger is made with a polymer/rubber mixture and can be bent almost at a 90 degree angle. The trigger is so flexible you can bend it up around the top of the trigger frame.( if you do this and it breaks don't blame me, i saw the guy in the proshop do it before i bought it.) But obviously with a trigger like that it feels like rubber(duh) and i wasn't a fan of that at all. but once again you decide.
efficiency- wasn't too bad on my 45/45 right out of the box with factory settings.
if your starting on the tournament level then this is a great gun for you to get. not too expensive, nice, neat looking, and just all around a decent gun. I definitely recommend starting with one of these before you get spoiled on more expensive high end markers to hate everything about cheap high ends.
CHEAP, ITS A PROTO, and its a great gun for the cash very light
This gun is a great gun for any one who plays paintball i would reccomend it because 1. now own and use one and it works great 2.its is a good gun for beginners or intermedite and experets. 3.its extremly cheap for the quality of it 4. its a proto If you over presserize an o-ring falls off the bolt so if your gun leaks check your bolt for any o-rings that might have fallen off and TURN YOUR VELOCITY DOWN
I would reccomend getting this gun it is a great gun and will keep you happy.

Planet Eclipse SL8R
Indian Creek Promaster
PMR with UL Frame, 16" Stiffi Carbon Fibre Barrel, Halo Reloader B R/D, 4500psi Xtreme Rage NO2 Tank
Stiffi 16" Barrel (Mamba or Carbon Fibre) or Ultralite Barrel and Ultralite Frame with a Edge or UL Trigger
Extemley light and super sexy
Plastic Parts (Individual Preference) and maybe the stock barrel and trigger
WOW! Who can honestly use a PMR and fail to fall in love with it. Its everything that a gun needs to be, light, sexy, fast, completley upgradable and extremley cheap. How can anybody write a bad review on this gun. Some stupid tw*ts might complain about the plastic parts but who really cares. There strong and all they actually do is make the gun lighter. HOW CAN THIS BE A BAD THING???
The actual speed of this gun is immense. I got it up to 27BPS with my mates Empire hopper and it didnt even chop once. Cocker threading allows the gun to be upgraded with a wide choice and some stores even have a page dedicated to PMR upgrades. What more can anyone want. I recently sold my DM7 so that i could by my car but i still wanted to be a paintballer. This was an ideal choice of gun as i can honestly say that the differencwe between the two guns is minimal. I am also $1000 better off!!!
If I were you i would go down to your local store and buy one. NOW! Or alternatley you could add us as your friend on myspace just visit www.myspace.com/xplosivpaintballpros
Being serious i reccomend this gun to anyone who is playing mid range tournament play and at only $250 you could make a huge saving aswell.
PMR S.E. (special edition)
Blue stiffi mamba 14"barrel
Pure Energy 70/4500 peanut/stubby/chode tank
Dye rhino tank cover
I recomend a barrel maybe i didnt use the stock one to much.
an on/off asa
If you dont get the special edition then you will need to buy the aluminum peices cause the plastic ones break/strip. Like the back cap the eye plates
O almost forgot the UL (ultra light) frame it isnt lighter then the stock one i am told (i dont have it) but i felt one and it feels good in ur hands idk personal preference.
accurate and pretty quiet
It is reallly fast stock 26 bps
itis maddd light
If you get the regular one not the SE then all the plastic parts break.
I bought it for 290 here are some facts
ion=no bolt out back
pmr=bolt out back
pmr comes with adjustable feedneck
ion does not u have to buy a qlock
idont really know what to say about the gun that i havent already besides it is an amazing gun i love it and if you are thinking about the PM7 instead of this i was also. i went with this instead cause it was 200 bucks cheaper and the only difference was the PM7 has an LPR (low pressure regulator.) And looks pretty awesome. But sodoes the PMR
OK back to the PMR yeah it is mad light fast RELIABLE RELIABLE RELIABLE. that is my main thing in a gun that i want is reliability and i got it here.
The one small issue i have is there are a lot of o-rings on the bolt there is like 10 or so through out the whole thing. BUT as long as u keep them lubed and replace them everyonce in a while then you are fine.
I def. recomend this to any paintball player i love it
BETTER THEN THE ION
BETTER THEN THE ION '
MORE RELIABLE THEN THE ION
FASTER STOCK THEN THE ION
BOLT OUT THE BACK WHICH=EASY ACCESS TO THE BOLT
DOES THE ION HAVE THAT?? NO
THE XE YES BUT IT IS THE SAME PRICE AS THIS GUN AND THIS IS BETTER IN EVERYSINGLE WAY. SO PLEASE GO OUT AND BUY THE PMR BEATS IONS ANYDAY

07 PMR black
empire reloader b
stiffi 16" barrel
pmr aluminum back cap
Its just an amazing gun if u want speed and reliability. Plus proto is awesome with their costumer service. If you want the edge get this gun. So its good if you are ready to step your play up. It's now only 250 so I would get it if i didnt have it.
My advice: Get it. It is just that good That and it is cheap.
Hanger 18 Eros E
Smart parts Epiphany
Dangerous power fusion
Proto matrix rail
Dye ultra light barrel
New back cap
Very consistant, very fast board, extremely light
Nothing major, maybe the trigger, but get a ul frame
Were to start this gun is fantastic. I love the feel to this gun, i am a front player and this gun is very good as it is light so doesnt hold me back from the break off.
In my team we have a range of guns, we have a NXT shocker, Dangerous power fusion, ephipany and a DM5. I must say that my gun can fire as good as the DM5 and the shocker. i have shot both the DPF and the ephipany and i prefer my PMR to them, if i had the money though i would have the NXT. but for the price its a really good gun, and there are many upgrades for it.
if your thinking of getting any of these guns i would reccomend the PMR as it is a gun for the begginers and the pros.
this gun is very fast and before you know it your out of paint, the eys work very well i have had 3 or 4 breaks and i have been through about 4 boxes of paint.
People say that the trigger is crap but i think it was ok, i only got i new one as i like the looks of the UL trigger.
Now the UL frame if you can get it with your gun for cheap get it but if you have the gun with no UL frame there is no piont at all in buying it as overall its heavier and can fire 4 more balls a second, insted i would say get a Virtue board as they fit in the stock frame
I must say if you want a fast, light weight, cheap gun this is the one for you i cant find any faults with it. GET ONE now the prices have come down due tp the SLG out selling it get one while you can they are in a different leauge to the SLG so get a PMR the are the bomb
