Review: The Matrix is a wonderfully designed gun. It is simple to field strip for cleaning, and just as easy to reassemble...just remove the single, large screw in the butt plate to remove the plate, bolt, breach, and barrel. This makes the gun easy to maintain.

With it's duel ball dentents, the Matrix is the only electronic gun out there that can rival an autococker for accuracy. Since you can shoot such tight groups at long range, you'll find yourself killing more opponents off the break...I play back, and was gogging one or two opponents per game in the last CFOA.

Because there are no external parts, and the body doesn't have any holes milled in it, it is nearly impossible to gunk up the gun's internals. The Matrix is a gas hog, but it is also very consistant. You should be able to shoot about 15 bps with it, and an Evolution hopper will feed fast enough to prevent chopping paint...I've never chopped a ball in good weather, but sometimes it will chop in weather below 40 degrees.

Even though this last point is rather trivial, due to the Matrix's black finish and smooth sides, you can feel free to cover the gun in your favorite stickers...I know I do.
Conclusion: The Matrix is a fantastic gun, especially for the price...you can get by with a minimal number of upgrades, thereby giving yourself a great gun without having to spend over $1000. Make sure you have at least a 4500 Nitro tank or else you'll find yourself running out of gas before you empty your pack...back players, this means you.
