Unequaled quality, meticulous engineering and impeccable design are just a few of the reasons why Proto is the first name in paintball. The new Matrix 7 has a host of new features like a jaw dropping body style, new programming with three firing modes, new settings and more sensitive adjustment levels that will allow you to tune-in your marker to your exact playing style. The M7 also comes standard with all new metal eye plates, a new clamp neck knob, low-pressure bolt kit, a new improved LPR, metal logo inserts and a two-piece barrel. The trigger placement is 3/8" shorter, giving you more control by positioning your finger for optimal strength and speed on the trigger. Additionally, the M7 is 1/2" shorter and 3/5 oz. lighter than the M6.

Review: THIS REVIEW WILL BE WRITTEN ABOUT THE PM7 WITH THE UL FRAME

Weight/Size
• Let me start off first by saying this gun is lighter than a DM7, and comparable to the Ego7. It is much more compact, than either the DM7 and Ego7, and it's weight is distributed much more evenly. 10/10

Speed/Kick
• Much like the majority of High End 07 markers, this gun is ridiculously fast, and has literally no kick. Nothing much more to say here. 10/10

Accuracy/Break Handling
• My first thought on this gun was that it was absolutely perfect, except for having a 12" stock barrel. However, after shooting a hopper thru the stock barrel, I found it was just as accurate, if not more so than my old 14" Stiffi. Although the stock barrel is really accurate, it does not handle ball breaks very well. This is not that big of a problem, though, because this gun rarely chops. 10/10

Conclusion: Overall, the PM7 with an Ultralite Frame is the best gun you can get for the money. For $1000 brand new, you can't go wrong. There is nothing needed more than the UL frame, and maybe a 14" tip for back players. If you're planning on buying a DM7 save yourself a few hundred dollars and buy a PM7.

Review: I first got this gun and the first thing i did was say woah...this is so much sexier than they look on the internet.
I went out to shoot it, and it is crazyy fast, and really smooth shooting marker.
This is a perfect gun for a front man, or a back man, just an overall well built and designed gun, although, not much different than the pm6, it is a hellalot smaller
Nicest gun i've ever shot.
Go buy one.
NOW
Conclusion: I recommend you go and buy this gun, you will not be disappointed, and with the right settings this gat maybe the nicest gun you'll ever shoot.

Review: Got this gun through a deal on PBN and couldn't be happier with my purchase,
to start it off

key strengths:
Accurate (with the right barrel)
Quiet
ZERO kick
very light
sexy

Weaknesses:
Brittle wiring
and the stock barrel is a bit left to be desired

played a few games with it and it was just purely one of the best guns I've used, slapped a CP one piece on her and shooting almost ball on ball, after adjusting the trigger to my liking i was able to rip at about 16 bps (semi), brought her up to the chrono after breaking her in and it was shooting about +/- 6 FPS, deff. not bad at all, one thing that set me back was I got about 1000 shots out of my 68/3000 but for a spool valve thats to be expected. After a while I decided to re-adjust the trigger some more and in doing this I accidentally broke the eye ribbon so that set me back about 30 bucks to go get some virtue ones, and from what I've heard the wiring harness is the same way ( I wouldn't know I tried not to mess around with it too much.

Conclusion: Great buy, worth every penny, just take care of her like any gun out there and she'll take care of you.

Review: THis gun rips plane and simple. IT compares way better and faster than the PM6 it shoots better than a DM6 and is nearly as perfect as a Dm7. IT is light fast accurate and super mcawesome. They are a cheaper version of a Dm7 in my opinion. The new stock board is nice and easy. (like a thai hooker). I have had this gun for two weeks and play a few times a week at the Field i work at. My friend used it in a tourney and it raged.
Conclusion: THis gun is pure Secks. Dont hesitate about it. Its worth more than it actually costs and the sex appeal is through the roof.

Upgrades:

Strengths: Extreemly fast and accurate.
Weaknesses: Kinda breaks a couple when used in the cold.
Review: Bought this gun then shot it in my back yard n it was extreemly fast when i had just the stock board in it. It broke a ball when i first used it but because of the fact the barrel wasnt all the way in. after i cleaned it it shot ropes with just the stock board. then i aceideneely broke my stock board n got a virtue board 4 it, with a virtue board it breaks nothing and shoots ropes literaly it shoot like twice as fast with the virtue. a lot of people say that i wasted my money for buying a pm7 because you could have gotten a pmr and their the same exact thing. but those people are extreemly stupid because all the internals all completely better the back cap on a pmr is plastic and strips as soon as u try unscrewing it. the pmr also you can snap in half with ur bare hand and breaks extreemly easy the pmr also has a plastic feedneck witch can break very easily and the pmr trigger is plastic. basicly everything is better about them pm7 except for the board because they are the same exact stock board. the pm7 is worth every single penny. i was going to buy a pmr but i decided not to and just buy this instead and it was one of the smartest things i ever did in my life.
Conclusion: Its worth it and is extreemly better then any other proto gun
