Hah. Even the lasoya barely qualifies as a special edition; plain body and four colors of fade.

Honestly the milling and anno on the Lasoya still leaves a lot to be desired. Both mediocre jobs if not more towards the poor side. I would never consider a LPM a special edition in any sense.
For the price though I guess it wasn't bad. But by the time the PM's hit the market, there were so many more great guns to be had. I think most good players at that point just elected to upgrade to Dye, PE, Bob Long rather than wait for interesting things to be done with PMs and FSs.
Think about it too, back when the first Bushmaster came out, it was still one of the better guns that could get. Could perform on par with the new electro markers and not totally break your wallet.

Rams on the bushy.promasster work the same.
the T2 frames are not used with hoses, either.
No T2's dont use hoses but they SUCK trying to cram all the wires in there. The second revision of the T2 fixed a lot of routing issues. Freestyles are great markers they just need a little more love than the average Bushmaster.

funny the plain body is what i like most about the lasoyas. the anno could be better. not sure if i would say that the lasoya qualifies as a PL as it was done by ICD, but it was a nice change from the standard PM. maybe not in looks, but in functionality.

i picked up 2 of them and have loved shooting them.. might take one and do some slight milling and get it anno'ed and leave the other one as is...

That was the thought of my OP. I can see the lasoya is oddly functional (easy to clean, good detents and board), but not nearly as glamorous as a PL Bushmaster. At the same time, you don't see many re-ano'd or milled. There are lots of stock promasters as well, but it seems it is more likely to find a promaster frame re-ano'd and on a Bushmaster as it is to find a promaster re-ano'd or milled.

I'll probably re-ano my lasoya; it is a collection of parts anyway.

The big ugly "this is not a toy" warning on the side of the promaster really ticks me off. I don't know if it is on the LPM also.

It is unfortunately.

The "Made in Taiwan" on the box doesn't help either.

I did not realize they were made overseas. Maybe that explains the ano and why my bolt looked like it was made by hand in spots. My clamshell fits well, but my trigger pin is wompy.

many stock triggers are wobbly. that shouldn't be a deciding factor in anything. shims and bearing help a lot with play in the trigger.

The cp trigger has no wobble and is smooth as butter. I got a used one for 20.
