Hey everyone I have saved up my money to buy a marker and I have been looking at the PMR 09 or a used PM8. This would be my first marker. I think the PMR 09 goes for around $450 and the used PM8 is saling for $550. Which one do you think I should get and why?

The PM8 for sure... 1 year "old" highend or brand new mid-end from the same company?

2008 Mustang or 2009 Ford Focus? :rolleyes:

i personally would go for the PMR... The only reason i would do this is because i don't like buying things used. I have had bad experiences with other people when buying and selling... I just don't trust people enough to buy used. but really its totally up to u

You can still buy PM8s new. Get PM8. It has an LPR which makes the gun operate smoother with less kick (as if a PMR has kick)

That's like asking high end vs. mid end.
PM8, hands down.

You can also pick up a brand new PM8 for $25 more dollars than the used one you're talking about. I suggest you buy BNIB.

Get the PM8 for sure, just try to test it out if you can. If you are buying it used online then be cautious.

If money isn't an option go with a new PM8. I heard the prices have dropped, not sure exactly what they go for new. Personally, I'd never buy anything used, not by choice. If money is an issue buying a new PMR is a great buy. The improved a lot with the new model (same reg, frame, and barrel as the pm8).

I own an 09 PMR myself and if I could have found a used PM8 in good condition I would have bought the PM8. Alot more in the PM8 than the 09 PMR like the LPR, self cleaning eyes, better detents...and definately worth the extra money, and like a few guys have already said, its a high end marker vs a mid range marker. PM8 hands down.
