It's an overpriced DM7.

You can pick up a DM7 for around $250-300ish. Any gun you find with some hideous camo job or funky laser engraving is going to have an owner that thinks it's worth the world. Unless you want something goofy like that, don't pay more for the same gun.

Keep looking around. You should open your options to more than a Matrix.

yea i really dont give a **** about paint job or stuff like that..i just want a good gun. I got burned twice before with the timmy style bolt guns in the past so thats why i was looking at the matrix system....i cant stand a gun that climbs after each shot. I want something that releases the air after the chamber is closed.

The "matrix system" you are speaking of is a simple spool valve design. Many markers use the system. All I can tell you about the whole "I can't stand a gun that climbs..." is that you need to realize any gun can be adjusted to have a small amount of kick.

I've shot a ton of markers out there and I'll always go back to an Ego. Although I've only owned Matrix style markers, I've shot more Ego's throughout the years.

Right now, anything is better than that brick you are playing with.

Swingin on the nuts never gets tiring?

Almost all of us had one. I shot mine till 2006. Tony could attest for that. Mitch shot his up until 07-08ish. Dillon had one, Garfield had one, every Rock-it Kid had one, and most of the Regulatorz had one.

When it comes down to it, they still can't compete with Today's technology.

DM3's and the like. DM7's are up to par with today's guns. Anything prior to 2007 is rather large or haved outdated electronics compared to today's markers.

Just make sure you find a marker that is compatible with today's rules. Most DM7's have stock UL boards that only stop down to 13bps. PSP's rof limit is 12.5.

That is kinda high for a DM7. They do look good I likes them and ICON DM7's it's all what you want to spend. If you want to spend do it. But that is high since DM8's are cheaper.

Yea, I agree with bj. Try to find u a dm8, not that its a better gun (they both shoot amazing) but because its compatible the the eyepipes. And those are the best and make the gun a hell of a lot easier to maintain

Guns seem like they havent got better but that is cause well they have caps on NPPL now so you dont need 125 BPS anymore.

Which is good, because now they can work on making markers more efficient rather than making them operate so fast. They were sacrificing so much to out shoot the competition.

Perfect example:

Yea, for so long planet eclipse were making egos to shoot a billion balls a second and just last year they have actually started slowing them down cause u don't need that anymore.
I remember hearing jack wood say that the ego9 solinoid could cycle at like 50+ balls a second. Pretty rediculous
