Stock vs. Stock:

PM7 will be slightly smoother shooting (VERY slightly) and more efficient (VERY slightly). REliability is a tie. Both are very unfriendly towards not doing routine maintenance, and both if properly cared for are very reliable markers.

Accuracy is almost totally dependent upon your paint. No marker has ANY affect on accuracy. Consistency it can, but not accuracy.

Without UL frame, IMO the PM7 is a very uncomfortable marker in the hands. But I have smallish hands, and the bulky stock frame doesn't fit me well.

Shocker with Eigenbolt will be more efficient than the PM7, even with an Eigenring according to Lurker.

Awesome response man thank you, which of the two would you personally take?

For me, I'd take the PM7 unless it's a PL Shocker with cocker threaded barrels. All my kits are cocker threaded.

If it was a cocker threaded Shocker, then it's closer. With UL, PM7 > NXT, with stock frame, NXT > UL IMO.

I've got a stock framed pm6 with eigenring and a shocker nxt with the eigenbolt. I'd probably take the pm6 over the shocker. I've never had a problem with the feel of any markers frame. The shocker has been a little more finicky with a little more fsdo. I've swapped a bunch of orings looking for the right combo and have it minimized currently. Both run close enough in efficiency to not be effectively different. Both shoot soft and quiet and are close enough to not be effectively different. I'd take both out to any game and enjoy them and quite honestly both have been awesome values. I'd go with whichever I could find for a better price or with more features.
