Review: When I first laid my hands on this gun I knew I was going to buy it. i went and sold my
E-cocker and went to my pro shop (Burleson paintball and scuba). Laid down $850.00
and was on my way. So i read the owners Manuel and realized that this would be the easist gun to get to know out of all i have owned. I aired it up and let it rip. Right off the bat i out ran my friends egg II with z board. 21 BPS (this right out of the box). then i traded and put the halo on it. a amazing 29 BPS. You don't get much higher than that. me and my friend compaired the proto and DM4 in speed, air efficency, and weight. the Proto came out on top in the speed and weight. And the air efficency was about the same. so next I compaired it to the new DM5. All of the tests came out the same. proto and DM5 seemed the same except the milling. i was shooting all of the guns so shooter was not the difference in the speed. angel 4 fly is not faster either so save your money. also tested and was not as good as the DM4.
Conclusion: As stated before this gun hangs with the best of them so unles you just have to have the newest and most talked about guns then save your money and buy the proto matrix. i am giving it a 10 because it compaired with these guns and the price was so much lower

Sorry but halos dont feed 29 bps. unless they have the V35 board.

PaintballNasty1 Thursday, January 6th, 2005 | 3:51 pm PST
no he probly can't go 28 balls per second, although 23 bps is very possible. They showed the results of a trigger pull contest 2 days in a row someone got 23 bps and won loads of markers and stuff-they had it rigged to a computer and everything.

ur all wrong! it can shoot a lot more than 23 bps i have the same gun with a halo and it shoots 25 bps with the same trigger . also a halo has a 30 bps feeding rait. and it can shoot that also if u have a victory board on it!

That gun has serious bounce issues then.
They will pull you right away at a tournament if they se you shooting that fast.

How can you even know unless you tape it.

beaverbuddy Thursday, February 17th, 2005 | 4:20 pm PST
No way you shot more than 22bps with the stock setup witout having dropoff or having the trigger bounce,

pm5s, dm5s, and dm4s are mechanically(sp) capped at somthing like 24

cabbspapp123 Friday, March 25th, 2005 | 5:35 pm PST
yea they cant fire more than 24 bps

NPPL Infamous Thursday, June 30th, 2005 | 12:32 pm PST
Well if your so smart then you would know that you can get a Musashi 3 board in it ( which I have in mine)which allows you to uncap the board. And since you seem not to bright, uncapped means that there is no limit on your ROF (rate of fire). I've witnessed someone get 25bps over the chrono with a Proto Matrix. He never said that he kept a running 29bps. All you do is shoot like 3-6 shots as fast as you can and that will just assume that you keep going that fast. You must be a newbie if you think that you shoot like 50 shots over the chrono. So you can keep your mouth shut about things you dont know about.

th boards are capped at 24 because after that there is drop off (a lot of drop off)

ive seen some1 shoot 23, they have it on video @

StrictlyDiesel Saturday, August 20th, 2005 | 9:55 pm PST
yeah after 24 bps there are serious problems drop off etc, dye even states the gun mechanically can not shoot no faster then about 24-25bps.

alienshinubie Tuesday, November 15th, 2005 | 4:57 pm PST

Halos cant feed 29 period.

not even with victory board.

proof: Check warpig. Very unlikely youll find a halo doing 29. Prove me wrong if you want. Just provide proof.
