There is good news for those of us who have had it with the sub-standard o-rings that Diablo has given us. Pev's Paintball in Northern Virginia has started stocking upgraded o-ring kits for the Matrix. These are vastly superior to the "fragile" o-rings that Diablo ships with the gun. If you have problems with leaks or are tired of cutting o-rings while trying to get your bolt in/out of your gun GET THIS KIT!!!! You won't be sorry.
I have had this kit in my Matrix for a little over 3 weeks and haven't had one leak associated with bad o-rings.
Now if I could only remember to lube all the bolt parts I'd be fine.
And yes these are the same quality as the kits that Aardvark has talked about and is currently selling.
If you need a kit call Pev's Sterling Store and ask for Dale 703-709-7387.
Change them at the same time not matter what shape they are in good or bad. Do you want to keep opening your matrix every time to chage a new o-ring that you could have changed the last time you opend your gun. Well it's really up to you.
The kit doesn't come with replacement solenoid o-rings. The reason for this is that if you have a problem that has anything to do with the solenoid you should send the gun to Pev's, Paintball Central, Aardvark or one of the other Matrix Service Centers.
Like Mich said don't MESS with the solenoid. You're only asking for trouble.
