I've owned a PM8 before and had to get another one. My problem: I'm somewhat of a perfectionist on certain things. I had to get everything I wanted, and I finally got it all together. It has:

 

Dye Ironmen Blade Trigger (always thought this one was the reach, but it's labelled blade)

Dye Lockdown Collar

On/Off/Purge ASA with center macroline

Parts kit with case (includes everything from detents to reg seats to o-rings

Proto Gun Case & Original Manual

I also still have all stock parts (these last three are what really put it over the edge for me)

 

I know it may seem odd to like a marker like this so much, but for what I paid and what I'm getting, I can't think of a better value. This is going to be used, and so it's the opposite of a wall-hanger.

Looks great. Looking at the grip frame, I can't help but think a PM7 frame would work on a PM8 body. How wrong would I be?

So that's what the ASA was going on. Looks great.

Thanks. The macroline coming out of the side was a bit too uncomfortable for my tastes. I tried to get all the ergonomics to be the best.

As for the frame, from pictures it looks to have the same shape, but I still doubt that they're interchangeable. There's no reason for them to be. What would make you ask that in the first place?

I have a PM7 frame and cannot find a body for it.

I can't imagine buying everything else just to find a home for that frame. If it's a UL frame and not the stock one, then you can probably sell it for a decent amount.

I'm right there with you on the PM8 love. I'm thinking about putting on the angled reg swivel and a center-fitting ASA. And if a Virtue OLED board happened to fall into my lap for a reasonable sum...

Of all the markers I have owned or shot, my PM8 is my favorite.  Sadly it is down with a broken eye pipe, but thankfully I have a replacement in the mail.
