The Tequila Matrix was specially made by Aardvark Custom Paintball Products. Only 15 of these were ever made. Each one has it's own special milling or anodizing that differentiates it from one another.
The Aardvark Custom Tequila Matrix is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

A hopper that can handle feeding 22+ bps.
VERY Rare (Only 15 Made)
VERY Fast (22 bps)
VERY Accurate (No Recoil)
Not as light as the DM6/DMC/PM6 (not a big deal)
What can I say? This baby rips (22 bps), is very rare (Only 15 made, rarer than the Entity), and the milling is sexy. Easy to maintain, very accurate, what else more can you ask from a gun? Aardvark really knows what they're doing and made a beautiful gun.

Well, if you have a tank that puts out high pressure 600< I recommend an aftermarket reg such as the glad, sidewinder, palmers stab lp, or the max flo reg.
This baby RIPS! I take it to the field finally after lots of waiting. I had consistent chronos. Paint was a good fit with the snort. The snort barrel comes with all Tequila Sunrises, and it simply the best I have shot. Quite yet effcient, it gets the job done well. The marker itself was amazing. Very little kick, incredibly easy to shoot fast and easy to shoot effectively. You will hit more people with this gun. Price : Well, it out performs anything I know of, cost less than most high end angels, and shoot better, faster, and just feels good. Oh yeah, the looks of the gun, oh, wow, it is DEAD SEXY. I have the Blue/Black and I have to say, I was kinda doubtful as to how it would lok, but now that I have it, it surprised me, better than I could have imagined.
Bee hive regulator is a great reg, but isn't recommended by Aardvark for HP tanks. Flaw? Nope. Just toss on a new reg and you can rock!
This is the best marker on earth. If you have the money, buy this marker! You will not be dissapointed. It looks great, feels great, shoot great, this marker is just great.
All this gun needs is a better inline regulator, preferably a Centerflag. The stock snort barrel is excelent, but always getting a good paint to barrel match is key. (SP Freak)
*Very Very accurate, stays on target,.. Unlike the angel, which has a slight recoil which moves the barrel up and down, hard to stay on target.
*22 balls per second, ...enough said
*It is one SwEeT looking gun! With the its "sunrise" milling, and the clear bolt window.. Everyone on the field will want one.
*Very easy to maintain.. No springs, no hammers, no sears. Just a couple of bolt orings to lube up and your ready to go.
These guns are very very very limited in production. If you can get your hands on one somehow GET IT! You will never regret it. Aardvark is now working on his "Entity's" for Team Iron Men, once word gets out that they are using Matrix's everyone is going to want one. I think that Matrix's will eventually start to replace the Angel. If I could rate this gun higher, I would, but I guess a 10 will do.
Doesn't really need any comes with a great aftermarket barrel.
Little lighter than a stock Matrix, has a couple advantages over the stock matrices(bigger manifold) it also comes with all the performance upgrades currently availible from Aardvark which means you don't have to worry about chopping.
I really dislike the milling and the colors. Save yerself some money and just buy an LCD Matrix, it comes with most of the upgrades of this and without the goofy milling, and the titanium lcd matrix looks sexy. brand new lcd matrix is $999, Tequila is $1200 i think and the Entity which is going to be out soon is $1300, the Entity is the same thing as the Tequila with different milling and an LCD, The milling on the entity is also lame in my opinion but It has cool windows in it so you can see the bolt.
It was a nice gun and it turns heads on the feild...good or bad.

Some dont like milling. I DO trigger sticks not often enough to be real weakness
Well, i got this gun for a steal, 400(canadian) + a spyder fenix, i got 5 extra triggers yet i love the stock, this gun is pure s3x i love the milling and grips, my friend has a dm3, he keeps on making fun of my gun, when i should be making fun of his gun, his is based on mine:) the only diff is DM3s come stock with eyes and lcd board, anyways back to the gun, there is no kick, no fsdo (first shot drop off) and over all i love this gun, if you can find one for under 800 buy it as fast as you can!

Aardvark Tequila LCD Matrix
Matching Freak kit with 3 matching tips
Evil Scion 88ci 5000psi Air system
Halo Belt loader
Modified ACE system
Nothing realy !! maybe some Anti-Chop eyes
Very Very accurate
up to 24bps !
Easy service on gun
This gun absolutly rips !! Aardy made a great gun!
I am shooting this gun at 19bps and its just slinging paint down the field. Never chops. I added the eyes just to make shure. If you are willing to spend allot of money on a gun i would deff recomend the Aardvark Tequila LCD Matrix .
This gun rips! and its in limmited production /Not being made anymore. there were only 16 of the LCD's made so this is uber rare !
This gun is Super AGG!!
LOOKS BEAUITFUL, VERY QUITE, SMOOTH SHOOTING, LITTLE KICK, can shoot brittle paint with out worries.
Cleaning the paint out of the milling, but not a big problem at all.
I can honestly say this marker is the best shooting marker I have ever shot, the looks are second to none, i've shot Angel A4's, Impulses, Shockers, Cockers, you name it the milling the anodizing on this custom matrix is something so rare, once a matrix owner always a matrix owner. Aardvark is the man, this custom matrix in my opinion is the best looking shooting gun to date. I would recommend this marker to anyone who wants to be on top of there game and having something so rare and differnt, but now there not being produced so if you have one hold onto it.
I recomend this gun to anyone who wants the best

I have owned an ICD Thundercat, Tippman M98, Custom Autococker, Impulse, and a stock Matrix. The stock Matrix is the only marker that I would even put in the same category. I have played with lots of guns including Angel, Shocker, but the Matrix still tops even the best of them.
Tequila Matrix with MacDev Gladiator Reg, CP Lightning Drop and on/off bottle adapter, HALO, Freak system, Pure Energy HPA with THOR reg.
The Tequila Matrix comes with all you need but a HPA tank, and loader. You might want a better barrel though.
Everything is excellent on this gun. It is fast, accurate, and doesn't break paint. Aardvark has fixed the gas efficiency problems and plain look of the Matrix with the Tequila.
Nothing is bad about this gun.
If you can get your hands on a Tequila Matrix, I would. It cannot be beaten.
I loved this marker right from the first shot. The marker is very quite and extremely fast. It easily out shot both my Ricochet and 12v Viewloder. I normally have troubles shooting fast but right from the start I could walk the trigger without any concentration, which never happens. The marker shot very consistent with both my pre set tank and my adjustable. With the bolt kit the matrix kept shooting right up to the point that my air tank would read just above 0 with no shoot down. My Trinity Mod prevented the bolt from chopping the paint while I out shot my loaders. The marker comes apart in a matter of seconds and cleans easily.
Can't think of anything at the moment.
Ardvark knows his Matrixes. The marker rocks right out of the box and shoots very fast with little to no effort. Accuracy was always there with a straight trajectory. Of course my paint to barrel match helped. I perfer to play with my Matrix instead of my Divine Shocker, Micro E Mag, Bushy, and even my Angel. Also, being a limited edition is always a bonus.
