Def start with macroline and on/off asa..then a clamping feedneck. The regulator is fine because it is the dye hyper 3, as for the bolt, i liked how quiet it was so i would leave it, but if you are wanting to seriously overhaul it then maybe an ape oled board and it def needs a new barrel.

Don't switch to macroline if you don't intend on adjusting the ASA all of the time, it's mostly a preference thing. I took out the steel hose on an autococker only because it was too long, other than that, I never switch.

TechT makes a bolt but I've never heard many great reviews for it, mostly negative and neutral (meaning it wasn't worth the money).

An on/off ASA is really nice upgrade but won't really make your gun better than a stock one, it's just a preference thing.

So is a clamping feedneck but your's is already adjustable. How many times do you take off your hopper during the day that you need a clamping one?

Reg is fine, dye makes pretty nice regs.

Board is okay (at least it was in my 09 pmr), it only took me like 1 min to switch between psp and semi and I never switched enough to think about buying a board to make it easier.

I have no experience with the stock rail barrel but you may want to get a new one if a new one will give you better grouping. A freak kit would be best but anything with a couple of backs would be good.

Overall, a barrel kit would be your best upgrade. It will keep grouping tight by keeping the air behind the ball for as long as possible. Plus, you can use on other guns, rather than an upgrade that will only work on the rail. Everything else is either going to offer no increase in performance (and probably a waste of money) or just be a preference thing. Just remember a $40 part on your gun will not add $40 onto resale value (if you are concerned about that), upgrades add a little but in the end lose value quickly. Instead, spend the majority on your money on making sure you have a nice mask (with thermal lens), a decent hopper, and extra money for paint.

I will say my experience with the TechT bolt was amazing. I'd say it is in between Droid and a Luxe. Everyone that shot it today once it was properly tuned was thoroughly surprised that a low/mid end gun shot so nice. It shot butter. Even my friend who owns two luxes had no shame in saying it shot awesome for a gun that goes for $200. I'm prolly going to buy it from the friend that is selling it.

1. Lurker Eigenbarrel. Depending on the paint size, get a .678 or .684 bore barrel.

2. Find a trigger that'll suit you best. The stock one has waaaay too much travel for me, but that's just me.

3. Virtue LED (not OLED) board for it. Best LED board available for the Proto Series. You will see instantly the advantage over the stock board.

4. Good feedneck. I love the Dye, Bob Long, Function, FBM, CP and Hybrid feednecks a ton because they're just too cool for words and work wonderfully.

5. Go play ball. No need to touch the ASA, hose or HPR. The reg is a hyper3, one of the best regulators on the market. The braided line makes the gun that much less of a hassle, and the ASA purges, so no need for an On/off since when you play, a gun should always be aired up for best performance.

Sell the Rail buy a 2011 reflex.. It will have all the upgrades you are looking for in a Rail.. then you only need to move to a different bolt if you really want to..

I agree find a reflex or get a pmr from 10, 9, theyre better than the stock rail reliability-wise
