It is broken and unfixable.... sell it to me for cheap


Actually it shouldnt be to big a deal. Here are somethings it could be
-Battery (enough power?)
-Inline reg (when was the last time it was lubed and rebuilt?)
-Bolt (properly lubed, o-rings good?)


But seriously, if you want to sell I love Trauma Matrixs.

99% of the time its just cheap, inconsistent paint or overboring thats the problem.

confirmed. If you still have amazingly wide ranged in velocity after you buy some good round paint then maybe it could be a reg. Try the paint thing first.

Also Blackmagic you cannot hide from me forever! I want high res images! How am I supposed to complete me awesome article with you keeping your warchest of nice Matrixes from me! I needs the images! Maybe if I PM you and link you more images it will spur you to action!

Other (unlikely) potential problem - is your beer can in backwards?

When these guns first came out this was such a common user error...
Oy I don't miss those days.

My beer can is in fine. I haven't ever rebuilt my hpr or lpr regs since I've had the gun but I had that done 2 years ago when I sent it to tmc for an overhaul.

Anyone know what my forward pulse and back pulse should be at though?

I was using high mid grade paint at the time. To see if it was the fact that I was overboring I switched barrels to underbore and I still had the same problem.

Honestly I overbore using cheap as **** paint on my droid and I still get +-5 at most fps(using dxs training). When I overbore with good paint I get around +- 3-4. I really don't think the problem is overboring.

Front pulse (i.e) dwell can be set as low as 10 and up to about 16 (you can go higher than that... but other than to waste air, I don't think you can tell me why.

Back pulse (i.e.) ROF... 20ms+. The bigger you make it... the slower the marker will shoot.

Haha, I'll try and make a better effort this weekend to get some pics. I've just got the Traumas now tho, bonesjackson managed to pry that Tequila Sunrise body out of my fingers.

On a side note I did manage to find some set screws for the Evolve trigger/frame.

what is your fp bp set at now?
have you tryied swapping the reg with the one on the droid?
change the battery?
have you tryed removing the bolt and moving it by hand to see if it's moving freely?

when you set your lpr. do you take the advice of some random person and turn it in 4 3/4 turns? or do you crank it, set the fps with the hpr, and then turn the lpr out a half turn at a time chrono'ing inbetween turns till it drops?

are you using the same barrel on the droid that you are using on the matrix?
