i've been very happy with mine. like some have said, it shoots very good outta the box. it is lightweight, accurate and fast. take care of it right, and it'll take care of you. the aftermarket is good. many people complain of the plastic parts and replace them. then there are people like me that don't mind the feel of the plastic composite parts cos i know they are quality.

i would do it again. but if you don't mind a used gun and come across a good deal on a DM4/5, make it happen.

there aren't really any downsides to the pmr. people say that it breaks but its all user error (excluding the few lemons). i like it, i can get a minimum of 15 bps on semi with the edge trigger (which still kinda sucks) and it is good all around. easy to fix, easy to take care of, only downside is efficiency but even then with a 68/45 i can get a hopper and 5 pods at the LEAST. so its up to you. just be prepared to be hated on by everyone for having a pmr though.

i would definatly buy it its light accurate and fast i havent done anything to upgrade it yet but im savin up for a ul barrel and a ul frame but the gun is definatley worth the money you pay ions dont really come close the only thing that really does is the mini. i play with a bunch of ions a few egos and a mini and a timmy and the mini is really the only thing close but its pretty obvious the egos and the timmy beat it. but its a real good gun for the money

i like how people say its accurate and fast

thats the barrel/paintball match not the gun

most guns are fast bye todays standards

people who say i play wit people dat have egos and timmys and dms are people that judge skill by guns

its doesnt matter wut they shoot

and normally poeple who say that are newer to the sport

you don't need to buy the gun then save more money to get the UL frame. theres a deal for the PMR w/ UL frame for $425

Umm consistency has more to do with accuracy then paint to bore match, but i agree with the rest of it.
