● ● ● PM5/PM6/PM7/PM8 Gun Database ● ● ●

This is probably the end of the line of the Proto Matrix with the fuse bolt and LPR. From sounds of it, the PM8 is the last its kind, which has come a long way from the ever popular PM5.

Post if you own one these soon to be classics.


RULES:
  • NO TEXT comment's, or quoting guns in the database
  • NO "Proto Rail's or SLG's", or any other gun that isn't a Proto Matrix.

Instructions: Copy the following and paste it in your new reply box...(between the stars)
