I bought my PM5 in November of 2005. The gun has just gotten better as the regs have been broken and the parts working in sync. The only major problem I have had was a nick in the top hat on the bolt, which dye fixed for free. The gun can be disassembled completely in about 20 minutes.

Pros:
- Short-term Maintenance is the lubing of the bolt after each day of play (5 minutes), maybe clean the eyes if you had a ball explode in the barrel
- Long-Term Maintenance is the lubing of the lpr and hyper2 about every 10 cases
- Once the regs are broken in, the pressure can be lowered making the gun very quiet
- Very upgradeable if thats your thing
- PM5's with upgrades such as clamping feednecks and virtue or tadao boards can be had for very cheap
- Light Weight compared to guns in its price range

Cons:
- Bit of a gas hog, 4-5 pods and a hopper out of a 45/45
- If you don't do the maintenance, the gun will fail on you

If you have anymore questions about the gun, feel free to send me a IM at Spyder3188.

O-Rings get shred when there is not enough lube on them.
