upgrading a PMI 1

Alright, I finally got to play with my PMI 1 on saturday and it was exactly how I had hoped it would be. But long story short, I want to make a few changes. I've heard good things about the Palmer Speed Gates and also their quick changers for 12 grams. I don't feel like sending it to them because Id rather do the work myself, so what I want to know is:

-if there's anything special i have to do to install the speed gate or if i can just throw it on there.

-if there's any extra charge for getting an extended quick changer for the PMI 1

suggestions/ recommendations welcome

the speed gate is simple to install. you'll need an allen wrench. it slides right on and tighten the set screws.

i don't the price of the quick change, but you'll be able to install that yourself too.

Both are good worthwhile options, I have them both on mine. W/ the Speed Gate, you can stick a 10-rd tube in the back and leave it to double the capacity. As C6 said, they just fit right on w/ no modifications. I don't think the extended 12g Fasst Changer costs any more than a PGP one, at least mine didn't.

awesome thats good to hear. the gun shot at perfect velocity so i figured i wouldnt spend the money on the performance tune just yet. but i do want the speed gate and the quick change for skirmish's Battle For Berlin at the end of october, so that's good that they are simple mods.

no problem. your welcome.

the performance tune will help you get more shots per 12 gram. so that might be something to consider as well.

Glad she's working out for ya. One suggestion, though: keep your 12vies as warm as possible, like stash 'em in an inside pocket or something. Late October at Skirmish you're looking at a high in the 40s (if you're lucky), which means not-so-great mileage out of a 12 gram.
