First thing (since I know everybody will say something about) I have a new button pad on the way from dye and I am picking up a red CP on/off on sat.

Gun is amazing, I have missed my dm6 ever since I traded it and I am so glad to finally have something I really like shooting again. After cleaning and lubing the internals I have the L7 bolt shooting 300fps at 105 psi:ooo: There is zero kick just dry firing and barely any when you shoot it with paint/reballs.

Gun is extremely balanced with magna and a full hopper, its like it was designed around the DM body.

I will get a video this weekend, I am playing with pat and andy on sat. and sun. and I will bring my camera along and get a video with real paint.

I think this is the first gun you've owned that I don't like.

Usually you get guns with amazing anno, but why did you go fade?

I say you make another black Matrix with the lazer engraved Chinese on it.

Meh... I'll wait till you get it annoed... but it's just like any other Matrix. Usually you pop up with the rare looking guns.

I've been debating a PM7/DM7 for a few weeks now. Just can't make up my mind right now....

Nice - I love smooth shooting Dye guns! Plus, the Ultralight frame is a HUGE plus in comfort alone to me!

Welcome to my world, I went back and forth a TON. I wanted a pm7 for the UL and old style frame, you know mix it up alittle bit but in the end I have always just liked the DM platform better with the lpr in the back for some reason.

The only thing I want for my Marq7 is a PM7 or a DM7. Nothing shoots as good as a Matrix.

Fades are gay though, so you should of photoshopped that out. :up: Someone needs to find me a PM7 for trade for my Marq7.

That might be true, seeing as the Matrix 7 line are the only Matrix's I'd ever touch.

My captain has a Oil slick PM7 w/ matching barrel kit.

Wants a Dye Matrix 7 for it though.

I don't know, the one I saw was secks with that CF barrel that takes Freak inserts (I know it has a name, just can't remember it for some reason!). That thing shot darts, and was gorgeous to look at!

He wants to trade a $600 gun for a $1200 gun? :confused:

If I had to chose a tourney gun though, it might be either a matrix or a marq, simply because they're enclosed mechanisms. The main benefit of matrixes though, is that I can EASILY track any leak it has. My friend sucks at maintaining his Dm6 and I can have it up in a matter of seconds as long as I don't have to clean out a ton of dirt that he somehow shoves into the back cap hole. I relubed and replaced every seal I even suspected of being broken on my protege and it still wouldn't stop leaking until I talked to a BLAST tech and he told me to cut a new hose of some extremely precise length.

Not to mention, I really dislike Ultralite Barrels.


BTW taco, your 68/4500 is a ton longer than mine.

Crossfire tanks are longer than PE tanks in the 68/45 length. Beyond that, difference in who made the bottle can account for length too.

What was the cause of it starting to leak? I only aired it up and dry fired it for like 100 shots, so I'm curious as to why it started leaking so soon. PM me so we don't clutter this thread more.

I have to agree with you 100%

Yes I do. I'm not an aurora/pseudo-aurora fan. It'd be a perfect gun if it wasn't that color.

No mine's a crossfire too. It's at least and inch and a half longer I'd say.

The leak got solved by BLAST, basically they shipped it with hose that was a bit too short and when you attach the frame the hose can drag against the frame putting it in an odd place and causing the barb to be angled on the hose poorly resulting in a leak that's nearly impossible to find since disassembling the gun makes the hose go back to shape. Basically they told me to recut autococker hose at exactly 2 inches and lube the side that hits the frame. While tracking down the leak a team member scratched the Teflon poppit seal ever so slightly(using pliers :dodgy:), and that caused a very minor leak, I ordered their new poppit that allows lower HPR with similar dwell because it had two teflon seals included and it only had a very minor decrease in shots per fill. Since I got 1600/68ci/4500psi with the leak sitting for 3 hours I figured what Terry on PBN considered a "negligible drop in efficiency" to be worth a quieter signature and 60psi lower pressure.

I didn't PM you because I figured it concerned taco too and he'd like to know.

1. Dm's
2. Cyborg's
3. Vikings/Shockers

Eh, I'd think it'd be Cyborg, DM's, Ego's, Vikings.
