The Generation-E Matrix is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
This thing is one of the fast markers I have shot, I can't tell you how much I liked this thing. Fast, light(for me, not sure for anyone else). I took it the shooting range before I used in a game and decided I liked it. Anyway back to the. I was unfortunetly chopping because I was only using an Egg w/y board, so I did get a little to fast for it, but it kept up alright. Also I love the looks of the gun.
I can't say on the effeciency because I only did use it for one game, Only got bout 200 shots out(3vs3 very quick match).
This marker is defently something great to upgrade to from any gun, And I think for the price range, I would recommend it to anyone who has this type of cash.

Many other electro markers. Intimidators, Angels, Bushies, Freestyles, electro cockers, etc.
2k3 ICD BKO, Bob Long Torpedo, CP 1 Piece, CP Rail and ASA, Eggy2 w/ Z-board, 68/3k PMI tank.
HPR, Barrel, Trigger
Fast, no kick, very quiet, ultra light pull
I used this product for an entire day of playing. It had a CP Trigger, CiP Powerstation reg, WGP Kaner barrel, and also had eyes. My frist impression was that it was heavy. What can I say, the guy I borrowed it from handed it to me, and it felt very heavy. This however, isn't something very important to me. I'm a back, and can hold the weight very well, even though I am not very strong.
So I took her out on the field and got thrown into a game having never shot this gun before. I am decent at walking the trigger and probably could get around 15 or 16 bps fairly easily if I was ripping. The gun was VERY fast, mostly because the pull was extremely light. Not being used to that kind of pull, I actually shot a couple times when I didn't mean to.
Throughout the day, the gun was totally perfect. Great pull, no kick, very accurate (that was the barrel, but eh) I absolutely loved this gun. My friend wanted to shoot it, so he took it out after we were done on the field and shot our remaining paint. He absolutely sucks at walking the trigger, but could still get a consistent 10 or 11bps out of it.
I highly recommend this product to anyone in the market for a high end electro. It is a little bit less expensive than other guns that IMO perform pretty much the same. This gun will hold it's own against guns $300 - $400 more than it. I have to give it a 10/10
E-Cockers-Not as fast or accurate as the 'Trix, but has SLIGHTLY better range
2k3 Shocker- Similar in accuracy and efficiency, but not quite as fast
Angels- Slower ROF, less accurate
Timmy's- Similar in speed, but less accurate
Red Generation-E Matrix LCD
Cutom Products Inline Regulator
Clamping No-Rise Feed Neck
Custom Products Trigger Frame
Shocktech Long Drop with On/Off
EYES! (I would recommend Toxic eyes or TMC eyes)
Trigger Job (CP or Hybrid 50/50)
FAST Loader (Halo B or Empire Reloader)
To make it even faster, get a Tadao 4.0 Board w/ a Cherry switch
FAST- Think Intimidator fast...
I said FAST, right...?
Not particularly efficient
I traded my E-Cocker and some cash for my matrix, and I am VERY happy I did. The Matrix is a fine looking piece of equipment, despite what people say about it's blocky appearence, and with a new trigger frame and a sticker or two, it looks pretty cool. Your trigger pull can be literally next to nothing, and the speed at which this thing can rip is very impressive. You can literally shoot ropes. In terms of accuracy, I was also very impressed. The closed-bolt design, coupled with the extremely minimal recoil makes for an amazingly accurate configration. If yoy have steady hands, you can plant balls right on top of each other from 25 yards out. The Matrix fires in a fairly flat trajectory, so It is easy to hit things at longer ranges. The Matrix is not very efficient, and without a bolt kit, you wont get very high numbers off of a 68/4500, we're talking maybe 800 shots. One thing you will notice is that you will NEVER chop a ball with a properly tuned LPR. Eyes make it even less likely.
The Matrix is an AWESOME investment. My suggestion would be to get one Immediately if you want a fast gun that has all the necessary component of a tournament level marker.
E-cockers, angels, other matrix's, timmies, any other high end electro marker
Dye Low Pressure Reg
Bob Long Torpedo Reg
Imagine Bolt Kit
Boblong Long Shot Barrel
68/3000 Air America Me'Lee Tank
12v Revvy W/ X-Board
Evolve Bolt kit, new barrel sides stock, Halo B or Egg, but i suggest Halo or Empire Reloader B, DEFINATLY NITROGEN/HPA C02 WILL RUIN YOUR SELENOID, possibly a new feedtube
Accurate, Low Pressure, fast (22bps) SO SO FAST
Air Hog,weight, and lot of o rings.
This gun is very very fast capped at 22 bps with the stock board this gun ripps, the trigger pull and trigger weight is pratically nothing at all. Walking out of the box is nothing easier. Not many upgrades, because this gun is so good stock. The only upgrade i really suggest is a new bolt kit because this thing will get about 600-800 shots out of a 68/3000psi tank. with a evolve bolt kit you will get about 1500 shots, and with a 68/45k tank you will get 2,100 shots. the matrix is kind of heavy i guess if your small built i dont know not a problem with me. This gun is built solid, quality parts that probably wont break.
this gun is worth every single penny you put into it. It is a high grade tourniment gun, very fast and accurate, and a very solid construction. This gun RIpps so fast. Its worth it.
Impulse- doesnt come close to this gun
Cocker- this gun is as accurate as a cocker and as fast as an angel
Matrix LCD: Air Amer. Tank, CP reg, HALO (a must, if not then at least an eVolution), Magnetic Trigger Frame (Toxic), Adjustable Feed Neck
The barrel that comes with an LCD is I believe a CP barrel. This barrel is not bad right out of the box. The first few games I played with this gun it was all stock, and so very accurate. You can basically snap shot a hole game if you want to. However an upgrade to consider is a HALO or eVolution, some kind of new reg, perhaps, and if you want to go all out, a magnetic trigger frame and the anti chop eye.
Accuracy, rate of fire, easy of trigger adjustment Easy cleaning
marker stock can look not very pretty.
This is a great gun to get. Not very expensive, but still up there with the timmys and angels. Also very easy to work on, so shops are more likely able to fix any problems.
When i got my matrix, i got it through my boss, he has one, his friend has one, my friend and his brother have one, and they are becoming popular fast!
The gun uses dual ball detents so the ball sits well in the breech for each shot. the detents are easy to replace when needed. it is possible to get ball bearing detents for this marker. these 2 things increase air effiency.
The rate of fire is very nice. You can walk the trigger or rack it for fast fire. The marker does weigh a bit with a Halo, but hey, good things come in big amounts!
Give this marker a try, and dont neglect the different versions (NYX, Ironman, DYE, and the matrixs which come standard with an eye!)

not an air hog,hella distance, accurate,quiet,shoots far on low crono(240)
heavy but who cant go to the gym
this gun was a shock to me it was good to me from day one. it was quiet and it did not use a lot of air. i can shoot about 4 pods per 1000psi. another good thing is that it is plain no carving or cracks for paint to get in to.
it is a very good high end gun to buy ,exalent for tournaments
LPR / Trinity, Upgrade from the stock barrel, Bolt kit, Upgraded Reg ( stock is very inefficent), High rate hopper (Evo, halo)
High Rate of Fire, Reliability, and Accuracy
Bolt May stick untill you get at bolt kit. Stock regulator is ineffient
With the accuracy of a closed bolt system and the speed of an electropnumatic marker, how can you lose? This is hands down one of the BEST guns on the market! Second only to other matrixes and mabey high-end Intimidators. I would have said angels but they are going down hill fast. But seriously, all of my friends own matrixes in one form or another and I have never seen a better performing marker! I would recomend that as soon as you can afford a Matrix you get one!
Everyone should own one, they are a paintballers best friend!
Timmys, Eblades, Everything your heart desires (Except angels cause they break too much).
2k2 LED Gen-E Trix, Evolve Bolt Bit, Marker 20 Chip, Gladiator Reg, and Trinity LPR
bolt kit is a must,lpr is very useful,new marker chip will make it faster,new grips(the stock ones are made of lead...eww),new reg is also a must.
-All air( no hammers,lugnuts)
-Have to buy an ASA
-Have to put 250-300 into it.
This is a great gun, I love matrixs. You can never bust a solenoid .... NEVER. I put about 600 psi in it ( it's made for 150 ) and it still works.... I broke the spacer in the stock bolt kit,but I was going to buy a new one anyways.
Even though I had to spend about 300 on a new reg ( 80 ), New ASA ( 30 ), Bolt kit ( 140 ), LPR ( 50 ), Marker 20 chip ( 15 ), and then a barrel,but that's not a necessity. Oh and eyes cost 250 which really sucks. But if you have a LPR you don't really need eyes cause a LPR greatly reduces ball breakage.
After you get it upgraded and what not it's a great gun. I don't think I'll ever go back to a timmy,eblade,or anything but a matrix!
Fast, Accurate, Quiet, Makes a cool noise when shot. Hey, why not?
( giving it a 8 because of the price of upgrades, and no eyes )

matte black 2k3 matrix lcd
crossfire 45c.u. 4500p.s.i. tank
other than that nothing at all
SUPPER FAST ! NEEDS TRIGGER JOB THOUGH. STOCK TRIGGER IS TO HEAVY
GAS HOG!!!! has the effiectiency of a leaking car gas tank
THIS GUN ROCKS!!!! as soon as you take your first few shots out of the gun you'll know what i mean. The only thing this gun needs out of the box is a sweet trigger job and also you should lower you front reg pressure to get maximum speed without breakage. i've only had this gun for 4 days and im in love with it. The lcd screen is really cool to its like a mini palm pilot and has everything you need and some stuff you dont like bolt timing, game shot counter, life shot counter, temperature readout in celcius and ferinhiedt, max rate of fire, game timer, battery meter, vibrating modes, buzzing modes, pulsing modes...... i picked mine up for 710 and it only had 7,025 shots on the counter.
Basically save your money don't buy an angel, this thing makes an angel look like a blowgun................lol save about 200 dollars get a nice lcd matrix and a fast hopper p.s. on paintball gateway there selling for 795.00 with free 2 day shipping and a choice of colors
