PMR, Proto Matrix, Rail, etc. Explain the last 5 years of Proto?
I've been out of the game for quite a while (Angel gone, Smart Parts = GoG? WTF?), but have been scouring PBNation and eBay trying to learn up on the markers I've missed. I've been drawn towards some of the Proto stuff for a number of reasons, but I'm a bit confused about the naming convention (especially on eBay, where I don't think people know what to call their guns).
Somebody posted this statement elsewhere in this forum: "pm8> pm7> pm6> 2011 Reflex > 2009 PMR > 2011 Rail". So what's the lineage? Did they make just one marker called the Proto Matrix from 2006-2008, then split off into multiple markers? I've seen some 2007 Proto Rails, and Proto Matrix Rails how do they fit in, and how can I tell them apart?
