Default I need of opinions

Hey guys. I'm currently looking around for another gun to add to my collection and i came across Proto guns. Its between a PMR or a SLG. If anyone can post their experience with these guns I would be most happy. I personally like the look of the SLG

PMR's resale is horrible. Get one. IMO they are better than the SLG, and they have the agg value :maybedodgy:

I got a chance to shoot an SLG a few weekends ago and compare it to my Rail.

While the SLG has a sleeker look, and fires pretty fast - I just liked the feel (and looks) of my PMR better. They are both equally fast, they both need few upgrades, and it could be that my PMR was broken in and had those few upgrades actually needed and a few more.

However, I've heard several people compare the two - then say they would take the PMR over the SLG, just like me. I can give actual reasons later, but my brain is mush from work today.

Is this a typo? or your telling me to get a PMR because they have horrible resale value?

He's saying you can get one for a cheap price.

No, he's saying you can get one for cheap. Most people I know prefer the Rail over SLG. I personally havn't shot a SLG, but I love the feel of the rail.

exactly!

dont buy new, buy used. Save yourself money you can use on something else for the gun, or paint, or just save money in general

Ahh I see. Yeah im currently looking at a Olive (love this color) PMR with a UL trigger frame. Lets see if I can snatch it for about $200. If not ill settle for a SLG. More opinions are welcome.

I almost went for the olive till I saw it physically. It's actually gold not olive green. I ended up w/a black one instead. You should really just see if you can shoot both and decide yourself. We'll all tell you to get what we have. I do know the PMR is incredibly light and there's really no recoil at all to speak of. Almost too little for me. I like to feel that I'm actually shooting something. You'd want a new trigger, back cap and prolly some spring detents. -

Last time I went ballin, I let my son use any of my markers he wanted to. He started out with my Virtued VS2. I asked him after a couple games if he wanted to try the PMR. He declined and shot the VS2 the rest of the day. I may just end up giving it to him as part of his graduation present since he fell in love with it. -
