Air it up, turn it on, shoot it.

If you have a chrono, chrono it. Other than that...nothing. Leave it stock, play with it, find out what you like and what you don't. Then come back to me and I will help you.

sweet, thats what drew me to these type of markers (spool valve) there so easy to use, unlike timmys and stuff you have to mess with them alot.

Don't use slick honey. Do use the Slick lube.

Slick honey allows you to alter settings, which you don't know much about yet. Use the slick lube until you are comfortable with the gun to start playing with settings for awhile.

Its super simple to use, don't worry about do's and don't's, just play with it.

theres only one moving part in a matrix. they are pretty hard to screw up. if something goes wrong, remember: always lube your orings. if its still not working, change the battery. if still nothing, change the orings. by then it should be fixed.

Did you get it from D? All you have to do is keep it lubed and it will aim itself and kill for you.

durrell
01-17-2006, 12:25 PM
He didn't get it from me..he got a great deal unless 1) He got scammed, 2)It's not NIB because dealer price on Protos are right around 500 bucks so I dont understand how the kid sold it that cheap unless he lost major money..

Its one of the older Matrices right? If so they were selling for $700 or so, then they updated with the 06 so that will bump the price down a bit

Durrell's talking current prices on the '05 Proto Matrix. I know the price seems low, which makes me a bit hesitant, but I'm glad you got a gun that will be able to take you to tournaments!

i hate tinkering thats why i got a mtrix, i wanted somthin that will rip heads off out of the box. tinkering and upgrading pisses me off. the guy sold it to me for $535 and hes sold alot of them to other ppl and his feedback is 100% positive. sry durrel i just didnt have the $600 to get it from you or i woulda.

durrell
01-17-2006, 04:14 PM
No that's not a problem, I'm glad you found suck a great deal. 535 is alot better than 500..he would actually be making a small amount especially if he's sold alot of them..

ok ya update on the proto, shippings been delayed because turns out it was a red and black proto inside the olive box... and its the last proto hes got in stock. so i got screwed on the color and i dont want to wait for him to order another or anything because i got reball comin up so im just gonna take the red and black one. im SO disapointed tho because i really really wanted an olive one. oh well such is life i guess. so when it finally gets freakin shipped out ill have pics for you guys.

That sucks about it being the wrong color. I wonder how it happened to get put in the wrong box? Hopefully you get it soon and enjoy it.

...........I wonder how it happened to get put in the wrong box? ............

Sounds a bit fishy(no offense Dre :) ) to me but I'm suspicious of about everything lol -

01-26-2006, 05:13 PM
ya you and me both.

Sac
01-26-2006, 05:16 PM
it really does happen guys when TPA got our order of protos in mine was black in a red box, luckily for me someone with a red one wanted black so it was no problem.

lewizz124
01-26-2006, 05:54 PM
ya it just pissed me off gettin my hopes up for an olive one and it turns out its the color i dont want the most. but oh well, anyone know where i can pick up a DMC feedneck? i wanna pick one of those up

chubb0rz
01-26-2006, 06:12 PM
www.thematrixcenter.com should have it

lewizz124
01-26-2006, 09:52 PM
nope, they dont have any good feednecks its kinda fruity. i already checked there.

geeZus
01-26-2006, 10:15 PM
I'd get a CCM feedneck. The clamping kind of feednecks are way better than the twist style.

lewizz124
01-26-2006, 10:41 PM
ya but i hate the way CCM's look on protos, its a huge proto bod then the tiny little no rise feedneck, id rather have a hybrid clamper.

geeZus
01-26-2006, 10:53 PM
CCM makes more than one feedneck...You could get a no-rise which is not the uber small one. The no-rise is the size of the feedneck on the halo.

Sac
01-27-2006, 08:35 AM
no rises look good on protos, so do the dmc necks tho and they tighten very well even tho there twist lock.

lewizz124
01-27-2006, 09:46 AM
ya i think DMC necks look really good on there.

leed
01-28-2006, 10:21 AM
STEVE, I found you a DMC feedneck (used) and chrome. http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=1325931

check it out.

I hope you get pictures soon, and I feel bad for you about the mishap, that sucks.

lewizz, you might want to stick to sigging people on the same board as you. Cross-forum sigging can lead to herpes.

I say this because I don't get you sig...I don't see the humor.

And I don't have a clue what kind of gun it's talking about.

lewizz124
01-29-2006, 12:30 PM
hehe i got a kick out of it because this kids lookin at his proto and hes like what is that screw anyways??? and he just goes and unscrews it even tho its locktighted in and it could be some self distruct trigger. i thought it was funny but maybe i just see humor in different ways.

bigred76
01-29-2006, 02:12 PM
I don't understand how you cannot see the humor in it, geeZus. I know multiple people who will do stuff like that because they're more curious than a cat.

I don't really get it either, but if Lewizz finds it funny it doesn't matter if we get it or not lol...:o
