I have the UL frame, and don't get me wrong I love it, but it is not worth the 200$ price tag. I think that is basically a comfort upgrade, and you should wait to buy it till you have nothing else to upgrade.

I have fairly heavy wear on the grips around where the hourglassing would be on a UL frame. Most because of how i grip it.

While I would normally tend to agree with you, I think that's just the masses not thinking it through talking. Let's break it down to see if it is actually worth it.

With the ultralight frame, you get:

1. Frame that has smaller gripping area. 100.00 - 150.00
2. Nicer trigger than most aftermarket triggers. 20.00 - 30.00
3. Board will all modes except NXL full auto. 80.00 - 160.00
4. Sticky grips. 20.00 - 25.00

So far, you've got 220.00 - 365.00 bucks in upgrades (incidently which MOST people will replace on the stock frame eventually - more likely one at a time.)

THEN, take into consideration the benefits of said frame - able to adjust the rail mount asa WITHOUT undoing the grips, the different style battery connector, buttons that are metal and don't come out, easier access to said buttons, being able to adjust the modes using the LED in the side of the grips AND the heads up indicator, then the most common reason being comfort...all this you can't really place a price on because most of these things aren't available as aftermarket parts for the stock frame. But, if you could, it'd be well into 100.00 probably.

I'd say that while it defnitely doesn't add to the shooters ability to shoot any faster or more accurately, financially, the frame is definitely worth the asking price of 200.00 when the parts themselves, bought as aftermarket parts and installed by the user, are worth upwards of 300.00 and more, taking into consideration all you get.

Do you need it? No, not really. The stock frame is pretty decent except for the stupid battery connector and the buttons. But it is worth it in terms of price because of what you do get.

Just my .02 of logical thinking there... After all that, I do have an ultralight frame that I paid the 200+ from eBay to get several months ago - dang it!

So whats the better deal? Paying 425 for a PMR with a ul frame, or 500 for the special edition? I REALLY wish i had the money for this...

UL frame. the only functional parts of the 500 dollar deal are 80 dollar barrel and 40 dollar back cap. thats like 40 bucks in savings whereas UL frame is 175 in savings.

^^Agreed. All you're getting on the "limited editions" are the barrel - which you could get cheaper - and the back cap. I didn't need a new back cap, but I got one just in case. I still use the stock barrel. I get more use out the frame than these other two items.
