1) The gun is HEAVY! Cheap price tag = generic milling and much heavier design.

2) Awkward feel..

3) Sub par solenoid - cutting cost's to keep it cheap.

3) Crappy board. No USB capability not oled, or lcd.

4) Bolt System is not as awesome as most of the Clones I have owned (v2, vx, gt, gti, etc)


Just a few common gripes.. I have more, but those are the major issues for me.

1) Heavy but I feel its more solid than other guns using composite to lower cost, to each his own.
2) It feels natural in my hand but again, to each their own
3) Sounds like a dye board haha but in all seriousness it has everything you need, just no extras.
4) The bolt system is designed to be much simpler than the clones and other highends.

O well, all in the preference I guess, that why theres not 1 gun out there

I am on mu phone and busy as hell but we can talk more later. I dont completely disagree with you. I just wouldn't purchase a gun with a solenoid I don't consider high end for any price.

I have not, but if anything that completely justifies my complaint.

Mine is in pretty good shape for an 05, has etek grips, cp reg, asa, rail, and cure 2 bolt. I got an offer of 120 so Im considering it but didnt know what they are really going for.

Forgot to mention mine had hybrid grips.

To many people having the CP regulator will not be seen as an upgrade.

$120 is fair.

for a sub $200 gun I believe a trusty dm3 or earlier matrix is the way to go..I still I sold my dm12 because I preferred the feel of my ul nyx any day

I don't know if you can get them for less than $200, but I know that I owned a Threshold once, and it was quite the interesting marker. I eventually sold it, but for the time that I had and used it, I was impressed, especially considering it came from Dangerous Power.

At one point I also owned a Quest, and I have to agree with Fallinher0 that it was a nice littler marker. Again, I don't know what they're going for nowadays, but if they're less than $200, they'd be a nice choice too.

As for a DM3 or an earlier model of the Matrix, sure, they might be decent markers in terms of performance, but honestly, I don't know as I could ever used one simply because of their ergonomics in comparison to the markers of today... I mean, think of the weight and the bulk of one of those markers in comparison to the current Matrix models, the current EGO, etc.
