What kinds of matrices are out there?

This is not a end all list. There are a few intentionally left off because I don't know jack about them. If you want to add, go for it, if you want me to add in my post, PM me the info.

I'm linking pics to some of the more rare matrices, but not sure how long I'll be able to host them for, we'll see how much bandwidth gets used up. I've also given proper credit to the site I found the image on. The data has been gathered over the last 2 years, and I in no way claim it to be 100% free of errors. Only thing I ask is let me know if something is wrong and I'll be happy to edit the post.

- Has a different solenoid than the LED
- Image bolt kit
- PBC lpr
- not aced
- not custom milled
- price tag of around $900-$1000 new
-Comments: none

Ironmen Matrix

-Comments: One of the few and the first LCD matrices in a 45 frame with eye logic controls, the left air chamber has been milled off, completely, to lighten it up. Grip frame is moved slightly forward compared to stock matrices. Custom 2 piece breach. The only colors these were made in was black with red accents, to my knowledge.

Tequila Matrix/Tequila Sunrise Matrix www.aardvarkdirect.com
-LED board
-Aardvark red Bolt kit
-Trinity lpr

-price tag of around $1200
-Comments: Tequilas, Tequila sunrises, and entities all came in waves. There were about 15 tequilas produced, 50 or so Sunrises produced and 17 entity trixes produced. The signature milling is the partially exposed bolt with a lexan window cover and the aardvark milled onto the side. Sunrises also had a sunset milled in (I think they all did). The manifold is higher flowing, and the grip frame is aardvark custom version, came with the alligator trigger.

-very custom milling with an octopus and the ironmen logo, and an aardvark milled in. Same bolt exposure and lexan window as the tequila
-price tag was around $1500 new, but they were only made for the SC ironmen
-comments: very sought after matrix, each one was anno’d differently in essence making all 17 a 1 of a kind. Very similar to the tequila save for LCD. Tentacle trigger included.
