I like the fact that it comes with psp mode stock. Overall I think it is a great marker.
In case you are worried about ups

If anyone wants any other pics of anything else or any other requests just let me know.
The stock PM7 board has 4 firing modes, nxl full auto which was not included in the manual. This for the price makes it a very nice find considering that all previous models of the pm only included 1 firing mode on the stock board.
Efficeincy - I have been getting 2 suicide shellz and 7 dye lock lids and having 1200 psi left over out of a 68/45 filled to 4k. That is 1510 shots and still having 1200 psi left.

So far the only thing bad I found was on my first board the socket where the eyes connect to the board was insufficiently soldered and just fell off the board.
It performs beautifully, I have not had any breaks in the chamber or barrel as of yet. I did have one in my pod which made a mess of my hopper and made it into the chamber.
It is very quiet, extremely accurate, ball-on-ball a three inch group at 50 feet. It is only 1 ounce heavier then the DM7 with the stock frame on it.
It has the same bolt as the PM6 so you can use all of the PM6 bolt upgrades, that is the only similarity to the PM6, it is shorter lighter, comes with 4 firing modes on the stock board, over only 1 on the PM 5/6. So you really don't need to buy an aftermarket board.
It has a new feedneck and a 2 piece UL barrel. I have let a lot of people at the field I play at use it and they all say it shoots a lot flatter then all of the previous PM/DM's, it doesn't seem to lob the paint.
I have been playing with it for a few months now and it hasn't let me down yet, I have put 10+ cases through it and still have yet to have a ball chop. I started to use my freak on it because I play from 10am to 10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays and the temperature changes from 80 during the day to 50-60 at night. It still shoots flawlessly.
***I played all day on Saturday and ran into a problem with the trigger on my M7 with a stock frame. The over travel set screw uses the plastic part of the solenoid as the post activation trigger adjustment stop. The set screw digs into the little lip on the solenoid and would stick on every pull. It was an easy fix just get one of the grip screws from a repair kit and use it instead of the set screw. Hope this helps anyone who runs into a similar problem.
Solenoid, the half round indent in the center of the solenoid is where the set screw wore into it and started to stick on every pull of the trigger.
Screw From 45 grip instead of set screw
You may have to sand/file/grind the edges of the screw slightly for it to fit into the frame properly.
