Pm8 upgrades question

I already upgraded my board and my feedneck cuz the stock one sucked, and I was wondering what else I could do....

I know I can upgrade the bolt to a billy wing bolt. Anything else?

Lots else. The question should be "anything else useful?". And IMO, the BW bolt is overpriced for what little it does. The only "upgrades" I put into my PM8 was a different on/off (I like center exit), board (I like OLED), trigger (I hate Dye triggers), and an eigenring which unfortunately didn't work with my PM8.

billy wing bolt cost way to much for the extra pod or so you get IMO, just use a bigger tank lol

Feedneck is really the only thing that needed upgrading, rest is cosmetic or personal feel such as trigger or on/off. I just have a CP feedneck, dont see a reason to change anything else

The PM8 is a high end gun, there isnt really any "upgrades" performance wise.

I have the 7th element oled bd and love it, i'm fine with the on/off, and yeah, I am not a fan of my trigger. I wasn't sure if maybe there was something else that I had not read about or seen.

Yeah, I don't worry about efficiency all that much, tbh (unless I am way off), which is why I never bought the bolt. The trigger is the only other thing I might change, and that would only be to maybe find a smoother-feeling one.

i seriously cannot ask for a better backup marker... tadao board + critical trigger... i'm about to get an eigenring to try and smooth out the shots as much as possible, also maybe a dye 45degree angle hyper3 later for looks would be nice, but i already have the front port ASA so it should do for now

feedneck was a must, and a different board was a good call (I have a virtue oled in mine), a better trigger and a better barrel are really helpful too, one you have all that you're pretty much set

I've been looking at the critical triggers, actually.

I also recently added a dye ul airport as the asa, and I ordered the 45 degree feedneck for the hyper 3, which, after emailing dye, I was told should fit the stock proto reg. Aside from that, I use dye UL's for barrels.

I don't like the shape of the Critical trigger... I really like the shape and adjustability of the Ironman Trigger. However, I have been looking at violent series triggers as well.

Feedneck is a must, the NT and DM feednecks are pretty damn nice... they are so low, I love it.

I really enjoy the Virtue OLED board I have, the ability to turn off the auto shutdown is a must for any woodsballer.

Yeah, I had a blast when I removed the old feedneck... That was fun. Not.

Anyway, I like the shape of the critical trigger. So prob go with that, and I hear it's much smoother, too.

The critical trigger is what I have for mine as well as UL barrel and they also both work great too, sounds like you pretty much just have my setup and I like it a lot so far, hopefully you do too

Yep. If the 45 deg swivel reg adapter fits I will post pics once I have it done.

If you like the shape, go for it... it's very smooth and had, virtually, no side to side play. I think it is a far superior trigger... I just couldn't get used to the shape.
