This gun is awsome...only chped a ball one time and no time since i got the eyes,it is also kinda a gas hog but thats not really a prolblem wit all day air at the field,it has never givin me a problem and has always been very dependalbe...i would recomend this gun to anybody who is looking to serioulsy get into paintball.
This gun is awsome,my favorite gun iv owned so far.
SCM Front Regulator
BunkerKing Bruce Lee Grip's
CP Rail and ASA
A little bit on the heavy side and thats it.
I bought this used for $250 and what a deal.
My first impression of the gun was "WOW" this is an awsome gun. The first game I played with it just rained paint on peoples bunkers. It shoots ropes of paint and the balls are ball on ball with some drop. A good gun for back/mid players but I like to play mid and front so weight affected me a bit. Although I didn't notice the wieght much you can tell its there. I've shhot guns from Empire 2 Timmy's to Angel Speeds and this gun shoots just as good. Gun is easy to mantain wants you get the hold of it.
Best gun for the price. Can find the used for $400 and less which is way better than any Ion.

CP Roller trigger

New reg. The stock one isn't that great, and neither is the Bob Long I have on mine (it came with the gun)
Low rise, stock neck is really tall
You don't absolutrly need any of these upgrades, the gun rips with or without them.
VERY fast hopper, nothing less then an egg (You need one of these)
Easy to clean
A little Tall
Heavier then others
I made some money over the summer and decided it was time to upgrade from my Spyder Imagine. (I love that gun by the way, get one) and I didn't want an Ion because they're just too common and I don't like there stock trigger. SO i looked around on pbnation and found my Generation E trix for $300 and it came with everything listed above. (except for the ASA)
It was very sleek and smooth, which looked very nice, but the lack of milling made the gun pretty heavy. It was very easy to adjust all the settings via the LCD, and it was easy to install the trigger. I don't know if later model Generation E matrixes had Dye trix boards in them, but mine did., which made it eay to adjust everything. Taking the gun apart was easy, you just need a single allen wrench to get the internals out, which is more than I can say for my friend's Ion. The matrix is also faster then a stock Ion, mine isn't capped and it shoots as fast as you can go.
Today I got to test the gun out on the field. I set the regs and shot it, and was getting around +-7-8, which isn't bad for the Bob Long torp I have on it. Even at 16 balls a second, it stayed in that range. The trigger is easy to adjust, but put a CP trigger in it, and you'lll see a 4 bps increase easily. (Depends on your finger speed, that's waht I noticed) . There was also no kick at all, I mean the gun didn't move at all. It was also very quiet, sounds like a PSHT noise when it shoots, knid of like a DM shooting because, it kind of is. It's quieter then an Ion, but is similar sounding. I also got several 'Whoa, what is that thing?" That never happened with my friends' Ion.
If you have a $400 or similar price range, get a used Matrix. Reliable, fast, no kick, and uncommon (I've only seen 1 other matrix in 2 years of paintballing.) (Not counting PMs and DMs). Get one today!
gen e matrix with a cp reg with and aka reg on the front, aderson board, dye stickeys, ultralight barrel, and halo b with a victory board.
evolve bolt-better efficiency
Fast, accurate, easy maintainance
Little heavy, stock bolt
I love this gun. after making some modifications this gun will rip. the only two problems i have had is that the air efficiency with the stock bolt is really bad and when using the anderson board and the dye stickes sunlight can mess with the sensors. after i fixed that i can put out a constant 20 bps witch is more than you really need. if you are looking for a good used gun i would recommend this but you you have the money to spend go with something newer
If you have limited funds and need a good gun you can get a used one on good shape pretty cheap. i gave it an 8 only because you have to upgrade a little to make it efficient

Eyes if hopper isn't fast enough
Fast as hell
It can be a gas hog if not adjusted properly.
Well my first gun was a Spyder Flash and it really sucked. I had a buddy of mine pick up this matrix for me and I love it. If you dont use the right kind of paint is has a little bit of first ball drop off, but overall it shoots really consistant and accurate. NO CHOPS so far with the halo, but if you have a slower hopper I would buy eyes. I don't use co2 in the matrix because I don't think it's good for it but that is your own opinion. Incredible ROF, I can hit 16 with it and thats pretty damn fast.
If you have a cheap gun and don't like it BUY A MATRIX.

i have used a 2003 bko and the matrix blows it away.
2002 generation-e matrix with a costume products .689 barrel, st reg. and drop, and shorter feed neck with clamp. A stubby tank and a halo hopper.
get the trauma eyes. i dont have them yet but i have shot a gun with them and its sweet. and the c4 back plug
The gun is sweet. It shoots like a dream and it is really accurate. I love it. It is a perfect front or mid gun. The only problem is the weight. But there's no problem if u get some milling involved. There are so many mods that you can do to this gun to make it the perfect gun for yourself. I used to have a 2003 bko and then i got my matrix and it just blow away the bko. The performance of the gun is incredible.
Well if you cant find a gun to buy, go buy a matrix.
timmy's,cockers,angels...most guns on the market... My pimp (greatest gun ive used besides a4 fly)
Red LCD Trix w/ toxic parts
14" black freak w/ SS back .691 insert
Black Check It no-rise feedneck
Evolve bolt kit
Black Cp inline reg
Black PBC LPR
Black Empire Rail
Black 32 deg. ON/OFF
Black evo2 with Zboard
71/4500 3a tank w/ blue 32 deg. fill nipple cover and blue dye rhino tank cover
Inline reg-like CP +/-2 over chrono
Barrel-closed bolt so kits are good
bolt kit-if needed and can find one
new breach and feedneck-basically cosmetic
Efficiency mine was low even with all efficiency upgrades
This gun is awesome, Im a person who changes my mind alot about what to get,impulse,shocker,timmy,matrix,timmy,angel,matrix,cocker,i mpulse,back and forth i never could decide. Then Seeing a deal i went for it. And im happy i did. People say matrix's are heavy but i think it wasn't that bad. it looks really nice especially in red.
Performance- If u want a good performing gun out there get the matrix, its like dead on accurate. I was using .691 insert with .685-86 paint and i was still getting the amazing accuracy you expect from a matrix. Its like unbelievable, want to have a gun that u dont hear a loud pa-tunk? or a thud,or blunk noise... get this the guns so quiet u cant really tell if its even shooting. No kick, this is one of the reasons the guns so accurate it doesnt have all the kick like other markers. Doesnt chop, great gun doesnt chop if lpr is set right.
The guns very reliable, just relube your orings on the bolt after every few cases and your set. I truley believe the trix can outlast anything out there. Overall one of the greatest guns ive ever shot.
I almost forgot to mention this gun is FAST! with stock settings got it upto 23, and first time shooting it i was raking 21, and walking upto 17. With the trigger,and the sensitivity of it, u can easily achieve these high rates of fire. This is a hella accurate paint slinging machine. Im just glad that not many ppl ive seen own matrix's bc then it would be to much of a fair game :).
update: I don't own this gun anymore (i found something much better and worth while, my pimp)
Just pure awesome gun, reliable,fast,accurate(understatement),quiet,fast,fast,accur ate,fast,reliable,fast,dont cost a fortune,ups are easy to install and dont cost a arm and a leg.

- CHROME shockteck LPR
- air america vigilante reg
- RED back plate
- Gen - E bolt kit
- Long Shot Barrel
- Gun 20 chip
Gun 20, Bolt Kit, barrel, Ipr dependnig on yr
Some but think its a lil heavy but i dun agree
Over all this gun is awsome. I have owned\played with lots og guns and this (so far) has def been the bast. I think its easier to rip on this than my friends timmies (alien & ironman). The trigger, when done rite, it nuts. Oh, and I forgot to mention above.... NO KICK! Everything is great!
This is gun is very very very fast, its so easy to rip on. Its by far the best gun I have ever owned. It is also pretty simplistic, barely any moving parts, easy to mantain. It may not be milled out like some other guns but its awsome for stickers. Also very quiet and accurate. NO BREAKS
Some ppl have breaking probs w\o eyes, but if your lpr is set rite, when your bolt hits the ball it wont have enough Pressure to break it.....therefore NO BREAKS!
Go out and get it...Its def worth the money...So instead of am imp just save up and get a matrix....You wont regret it!!!
