Products Used:
Stock reg
Marker Setup: Proto Matrix, JDS LPR, Hybrid Bolt Guide.
Strengths: It makes the marker very quiet.
Weaknesses: I have not found any yet.
Review: This LPR was the first upgrade I purchased for my gun. It makes the difference.

When I first purchased the Proto I was kind of disappointed. It was loud compared to the other Matrix's on the team. It was not consistent across the chronograph. It also fired rather rough. I am a stickler for performance and it was just not living up to my expectations. It had more kick than my Intimidator. I fired two cases of paint through it to break it in and had our gun tech tweek it for performance.

After installing the LPR this changed. I have never installed a drop in mod that changed my total opinion of a gun.

First, I have to say the sound level dropped. It is nice to be able to hear my teammates communicating while firing.

Second, across the Chronograph I noticed plus or minus four FPS. That is awesome. I was using practice paint and we all know practice paint is just decent.

Third, it reduced the kick. Not much but noticeable.

Sixty Dollars. Sixty Dollars!!

(Added later)
After practicing a couple of times with this reg I've noticed the gun fires smoother. It doesn't seem to be so mechanical. Fire an older Timmy or a cocker and you may understand what I mean. There is no pop and clang. It's just smooth. I really, really like this product.
Conclusion: Sixty dollars and you will notice a remarkable change in your marker. Shell out seven hundred bucks for a gun, then shell out sixty more. The smile on your face is worth it.

Once again I would like to reiterate this is a drop in mod. It is easy to install and easy to adjust. If you don't understand the installation find someone who does. Sixty dollars changed my pinion of the Proto.

It was probably inconsistent out of the box, due to the reg not being broke in yet. But nice review.

the stock lpr does that too, if your gun had kick the lpr wasnt tuned right.
