Proto M6

i bought the m6 brand new almost 2 years ago and have yet to shoot it.. right after i bought it, i began working out of town and never bought the nitrogen bottle to go with it.. now i'm back home and have a nitrogen bottle.. i'm not new to paintball, just new to the M6 and using nitrogen.. before i left town cause of work, i had played off and on for 8 years using my shutter i had bought back in 2002.. so now i'm back and ready to get serious again.. is there anything i need to know about this particular gun? what will i expect differently from my old spyder shutter? where do y'all buy your accessories? longer barrels and such.. thanks ahead of time for any help or ideas..

Read the stickies on the forum, they're great help for new and returning players. Welcome back to paintball btw.

The PM6 is a great marker, you're in good shape with it. You may wish to a consider regulator, ultralite parts and a barrel kit, but that's optional, IMO a stock PM6 is good as it is. Oh yes, forgot, do you have an electric hopper?, you're going to need a fast one.

Look at a Viewloader Eye Force. Fast, holds a good amount, and can be had for a very good price.

Agreed, the PM6 is a great marker. With the UL frame, still every bit as good as anything made other than weight.

no barrel is better for any specific marker. Use whatevre barrel you prefer.
