hmm... go to a field, shoot them, and buy the one you like best? Like them all? No problem...buy the one thats cheapest. Strangers picking something out for you is unlikely to get you what you want, only what THEY want.

Go and shoot them, you may like one much more than the others. If you're going for plain performance, a Timmy or Viking would be the way to go.

No they are not twice as accurate. With the same reg and barrel they should be the same accuracy wise. Half the price would be for an LED which will need some upgrades to compete with the Timmy. Plus the Timmy is more efficient than the Matrix. I don't have anything against Matrices, I'm just stating the facts.

03 shocker dude

i think the 03 kicks all those other guns a-sses in accuracy and has a very very nice rof. more lightwight and manueverable than any of the others also. go with the shocker.

I have not fired one yet but I hear that the trigger frame sucks and the gun is definately not up to par with a Timmy or Viking, don't even try to argue otherwise.

try firing one before making an assanine comment like this.

03 shocker (just got mine last week) is one of the best out of the box sub 1200 guns I've ever handled. There is a little slop in the trigger, but the ROF on it is amazing. It has a very very low profile and is extremely light. Also, nice and short similar to an autococker. Whereas My thing against the timmies is how uncomfortably long they are. trixies are also very nice but have a little too high of a profile for me.

but, that just tells you its all personal preference...

I would drop the speed from your list... try it first, but afterwards you will see why. (is an improvement from the older angels, but they still have a ways to go) another round of major accuracy upgrades, and the angels will be up with the rest...

Don't get me wrong the 03 Shockers are nice guns although I have only seen them as of now, but they aren't as good as Timmys or Vikings. But considering Shockers are also cheaper, that is to be expected. I have also heard bad things about the trigger frame from multiple people. I know that personal preference plays a huge role, but from what they've told me the frame is hard shoot at high rof.

The board has a high bps cap but I have heard from a trusted friend and some others that the trigger frame just is too hard to get up high speeds. My friend also was planning on buying a 03 Shocker until he shot one and then bought a Lasoya Timmy instead.
