I have a PMR with a few upgrades already:
the metal parts kit (cap eyes buttons trigger feedneck)
have a few barrels
new eyes
hyper 3

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.

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+

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..

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.
