I love this gun. It feels great, shoots fast, and is efficient. I got this gun of ebay without and ASA, crappy board, and a crappy feedneck. I replaced them with a Trinity on/off ASA, Virtue Board, and a Function twist clamp feedneck. I've shoot a few cases through it and it is amazing. People who complain about it being heavy are a wussies and don't have any muscle. I'm 15 and I don't complain about it. A few of my friends have the same gun and I've noticed it does become inefficient in the long run, but no big. I love the PM5. If you are new and looking for a great gun to start out with, go get a PM5.

My PM5 has been a great gun for me so far. Mine has the Musashi board, doesn't eat paint and is pretty consistent considering it's age (pushing 7 years at the time of this review!)

Once you give it it's regular disassembly/cleaning/lubing, it's an easy gun to tune and use. Very quiet as well, plus all the kids these days don't know what it is.

It won't replace my trusty mech cocker, but it is a great gun.

the proto pm5 is a very reliable gun. its amazing for the age, shoots smooth and isnt to bad on weight. mine is all stock and i would put it up against the 2011 reflex rail. their like the old impulses, theyl never break down on you. id still use it in a tourny if i playd one. you can get this gun used for dirt cheap too. over alll this gun is amazing, im telling you, buy one if you find one!
