The Rail is lighter, smoother, quieter and will have little to no kick. The Blitz is a stacked tube, sear tripper poppit. Will be loud, heavy and pack a bit of kick.

I will note this: The Rail does not come with an on/off asa, so take a good look at the Rail Maxxed, it comes with the Dye on/off asa and lever lock feedneck, plus a 2 piece 14" barrel. Those are well worth the extra cash.

when you buy a pmr, you get dye's internals which has been making quality guns for years. Make sure to maintain it though. Many of people are always like "why is my gun leaking?" "did you lube and replace its o rings?" "no :(" And if your gun isnt turning on, try replacing the battery before you take it to a tech.

Alternative approach:

  1. Buy used PM8 instead.
  2. Adjust LPR.
  3. Profit.

Check BST's here, PBNation and Paintball forum. Probably not going to find one so inexpensive on Ebay right now.

I find them on eBaY every once in a while. Maybe 1-2 PM8's in a 2 week period minimum and they usually come with ups too. Like Wolfe said BST's also have them. I've bought one for $180 with ups on eBaY.

I've reconsidered and I think I might save a little more and go with the proto rail maXXed pmr. Also why is the pm8 marker better than the pmr 2011?

The PM8 is widely considered the best marker ever made by Dye. It was a high end Dye marker at the low range Proto price point. In 2007, Dye decided to make Proto the Low and Mid range lines and the Dye markers would be high end. So, Dye created the PMR's. They were no more than glorified Ion's. Not bad markers by any means, but certainly not high end. The 2011 Rail is just the next model year of the PMR's. Still a great and inexpensive entry level spool valve, just not on the level with the PM's.

 

On a personal note, I love my 2011 Rail. I've upgraded the asa (DP RAPS2) and the feed neck (Shocktech lever lock). Not going to go any further with upgrades, the benefits just don't justify the expense.

glad to see you starting paintball! I started out with the reflex rail. The proto reflex rail is probably one of the best beginner guns on the market! It feels great in your hands, its quiet, and it looks bad ass. It also has all the reliability of a dye gun. One of the best parts of the proto is that it comes with color coded o rings! this is a great way to begin to learn how to tech your own gun. 

The Azodin, however should not be considered! Any product with the words "spider" or "azodin" stamped on them should be thrown into the fiery pits of hell. If you buy the azodin, you will have nothing but trouble, and in the end will end up paying more money for parts and repairs on your azodin than if you had just bought a better gun in the first place. hope this helped.

If you wait another month or two, and you try to scrape some cash off your grandparents, or make a deal that you can pay someone back overtime, you can really upgrade your gun.
