okay,
I have a pm6 ul'd I and I am thinking about getting a pm8. I recently have bought new stuff for my pm6 including:
A seventh element board
New Eyes
an Orange bolt
cp reg
and a new feedneck


I was thinking about selling my pm6 and getting a pm8 will all my upgrades work in this gun?
and can I take parts from the pm8 and put them in the pm6?

some of it will, some wont, if i remember correctly the bolt wont fit, or the board, or the reg (if its hyper3 threading, idk), I think it would best to wait tho, when the pm9 comes out pm8s will drop in price drastically

I have a pm6 ul'd I and I am thinking about getting a pm8. I recently have bought new stuff for my pm6 including:
A seventh element board - UL boards fit the same.
New Eyes - which eyes? can't be pm6 eyes since seventh elemnt doesn't make a board for it.
an Orange bolt - no - won't fit pm8.
cp reg - no - needs matrix thread adapter.
and a new feedneck - yes - will fit PM8.


I was thinking about selling my pm6 and getting a pm8 will all my upgrades work in this gun?
and can I take parts from the pm8 and put them in the pm6?


I'm confused on which eyes and board combo you are using.

I'm lost - seventh element has a DM UL board. Are your eyes ribbon or wired?

I think Proto went with the 09 PMR for their 09 flagship marker, but anyway, PM8 is pretty good, good design, UL Frame, good trigger, good feedneck, the Proto barrel is kinda like a UL barrel, so.
