Here's a bit more information on the F1's (Taken from Bones' Article and interviews with Drew):

Quote:
While every other Matrix listed in this thread can be called a distinct “brand” or milling pattern, the F1 series are exceptions. The 5 guns that make up the group are listed here because they were the prototypes that Aardvark paintball built when they were experimenting on how they wanted to produce the Matrix. While they do not stand out as the lightest nor the flashiest, each one was unique.

F1's were mostly all solid ano, no windows, all slide switch, and blue bolts. First gen volumizers, stock high rises / dozer rises. The trademark milling is the design on the top back of the gun, the ACPP design above the ASA, and an aardvark on the sides near the back of the gun.
Later Aardvark Matrix guns all had windows cut into the body, the bolt covered with a sleeve made out of Lexan. This window allowed one to see the bolt function during shooting. F1's obviously didn't have any windows cut into the bodies, so they are the only Aardvark Matrix Guns that can actually use the special (and quite rare/expensive) Slam Bolts that Aardvark also made.

Some new pictures taken. Don't mind the inconsistent lighting, I apologize on behalf of the clouds today.

You know, you should consider taking all of your collection to a huge event. Setup a booth and "charge people if it was possible" to take a look at them. Sort of like a museum type of booth and do a glass case type gig. **** I would pay to see all of them and for a little extra cash "JUST MAYBE LOL" charge people to test fire one of your choosing or even just hold/fondle with latex gloves.

Well you probably don't want the wear and tear for test firing/fondling, but I can definitely imagine people forming up to see these and old timers would appreciate it for sure.

Just an idea, but in the end I'm sure everyone here would simply agree just barricade your house and never come out of hiding lmao.

Haha. Thanks, Rich.

That's why I think this sub-forum was such a great idea. Anyone can appreciate them for free to the extent of my mediocre phone camera skills.
I can't imagine what paintball or this collection will look like in 20 years, but if I'm fortunate enough to still be enjoying the sport, opening some sort of museum or something wouldn't be totally out of the question. For now, though, hauling everything around without some sort of huge trailer would not be fun.

I make it a point to rotate which markers get used, and if someone asks to shoot or fondle something of mine, I usually don't have any problems with letting them do so. It's a sad thought to think that some other rare markers of this calibre are stuffed away in closets not being used or appreciated.

Vegard, I also have your address at my disposal. ... just give me a solid week and let me find it.

Besides, whoever lied and said I keep all of these together and at one particular "location"?

Amazing collection...

And the search for my VCR... and cords.. ugh... I hate you.. /respect

Nice Boston twister, not to many of these have the Reflex kit on it, and by not many I mean 7 in total from what I was told. Does it work?

Yep, it's full functional.

When I received it, it needed some TLC and a proper sized bolt. Due to the nature of the Reflex Kit, there wasn't a more obvious choice than to find a Jam Bolt for it. Also have the matching front block.
