05-08-2010, 07:44 PM
I have a PMR with a few upgrades already:
the metal parts kit (cap eyes buttons trigger feedneck)
have a few barrels
I only play a few times a year now, and dont want to go crazy.
what would be a few things I could get for a reasonable price?

virtue board for $50

Virtue board, trigger, and a feedneck is pretty much the only thing you really need. If you can, pick up a UL frame.

what does the virture board offer as an upgrade? I know you can customize some fireing modes and stuff...but what else does it do that a stock board wont?

It has more ramping modes and it's easier to use. For 50 bucks its a great deal.

Nah, just go for the UL frame. Comes with a board with everything you need on it and a great trigger already - gives a metal frame, the most comfortable frame Ive EVER held, and adds to the value of the gun overall.
Best upgrade I ever made on my PMR...

It is probably the most comfy frame. If I were you I'd save up and get that.

I like the composite frame. Makes it feel like I'm carrying a fly swatter around -

I broke the composite frame on my SLG a few years ago lol.

how about bolts, I know the stock bolt is pretty good. anyone have experience with any others?

All I know is that I've heard that neither the tech t or orange bolts dramatically improve anything, and they both seem to cost $60+

:yeahthat: i tried those out a few days ago, there wasnt much of an improvement

Speaking of those bolts.. anyone know why they scrap the boost forward technology? Seems like the stock pmr bolt did fine, why not just build a high quality lighter version? And not charge an arm and a leg for it..

tech t bolt help alot, gun is alot quieter and more shots, xsiv when did you get that bolt?
05-19-2010, 07:48 PM
didnt get it, i tried um out from another guy with the techt and orange bolts, they do make um quitier but not much, and i didnt get that many more out of a 49/3000 tank

what was your dwell at? and was you reg set?

I actually heard from a number of people that efficiency was worse with the tech-t. The fact that techt doesn't advertise it as being more efficient makes me inclined to believe that it's not.

This - I've also heard that, but its hearsay. I personally didn't think the bolt needed upgraded since it worked just fine. Only change I made was a metal backcap for color and an oring on it to keep it from coming unscrewed from the body while playing. Works beautifully - oh and my efficiency was awesome with the stock bolt as well.
