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.
1-Aardvark Custom Tequila Matrix
3-Red bolt kit
4-68/4500 PMI Tank
5-CP flame drop
6-Freak set w/ 14" & 10" front, SS back
7-CCM adjustable High rise
8-Macroline hoses & Fittings
Hardly needs anything; possibly a better barrel (freak or boomy), and a better regulator (Mac Dev or Center Flag).
1-Very good customer service techs. (astroglide, aardy, fatty, wildredcherry)
2-Extremely high rate of fire (21-22 BPS)
3-Light, adjustable, smooth trigger pull
4-Great body work, unlike any other
5-Low pressure operation
6-Some other internal work has been done besides what it comes as stock
8-45 grip frame
9- Easy to maintain, bolt can be taken out in less than a minute
10-Very rare, all owners of the tequila definitly have a nice prize
11-Comes with low pressure regulator for less ball chop
1-Too rare, only 15 made
2-limited color choices, only 3
3-If you have never owned a matrix, its challenging to setup properly, front reg and input pressure, etc
If you looking for an electronic marker (preferably low pressure), you may want to consider the tequila matrix. It come with all the extras available, bolt kit, trinity, 45 grip frame, aggressive milling (INCLUDING: THE SEE THROUGH T-TOP)& annodizing, stickies, low rise & high rise, and some internal work on the manifold and regulator.
2000 angel..dye boomstick..cobra bolt and hammer..conquest 68x4500
gladiator reg..I NOW HAVE THE TEQUILA WITH 45X68 CONQUEST AND GLAD REG...CUSTOM .687 DYE TI.
the tequila is outstanding in every thing...from looks to performance...this gun is quieter than any gun i have owned...this gun has NO KICKBACK(RECOIL)..
this gun gets nothing but praise on its looks...the #1 thing i like about it is the accuracy...you can really hit something...all you have to do is aim...the balls never chop, and they fly like a high performance cocker...the trigger is faster than any angel i have shot...this gun rocks...plain and simple...
not made them anymore...
this gun is worth every penny i paid for it...i wish i had of bought 2 of them...if you ever see one for sale grab it fast...you will never be sorry...btw...right now i'm using an old excel dye barrel and it is shooting darts...my angel breach is coming next week and i will put my custom ti boomy on...i really don't see how that will get this gun (tequila) any more accurate....if diablo was smart they would get aardvark to make more of these to put on the market...after all were it not for aardvark the matrix would be going downhill just because of gas hog...i get 1200-1300 shots from my tequila with 45x68 conquest...

Shocker 4x4 Turbo
Aardvark Custom Tequila Matrix: Comes with Red Bolt Kit, Tinity LP Reg, Modified BeeHive Reg, Alligator Trigger, Custom Milling and annodizing, Low and Mid rise Vertical feed, J&J Aluminum barrel, Volumizers/horns, and Custom 45 Grip frame that excepts all standard 45 grips. My tank is an Air America Raptor Rex. I used a 12V Revy with Vortex Impeller.
Comes with everything you ever need except I would recommend a Freak Kit or similar and maybe a HALO or Revy with Tubo board. Also get a tank that is rated for High Flow at low presures.
If stock Diablo Matrix I recommend the following:
1) Aardvark Bolt Kit
2) Aardvark Tinity LP Regulator (prevents all ball chopping by nearly 100%%%%)
3) CenterFlag or MacDev Gladiator Regulator
4) Freak Kit or Similar
4) A Good adjustable/LP Preset tank (MaxDev Conquest or Air America Armagedon)
5) Aardvark Super-slick O-rings a must!
6) Alligator trigger
In my opinion the best marker on the market! Comes with everything it will ever need (See gun setup). The Matrix is very quite mostly due to being low presure and Aardvark bolt design. Shoots very very fast. Comes with a bolt chip that increases you ROF to an insane 21.6 BPS and prevents Bolt Stick. Trade up from an Angel, you won't be disapointed! You will never chop a ball again with the Trinity LP Reg mod, which reduces your bolt presure to 80-110PSI. The bolt will literlly bounce off your finger as it will with paint. Efficency is good with included Aardvark bolt kit. I get about 1100 shots out of a 88Ci x 3000PSI. At 4500PSI you'll get 1650 Shots. Over Chrono I get +/- 2 FPS. Up to 16,000 balls now and no breaks! Just be sure to clean and grease your bolt after every day of play or 4000 balls. Only use Aardvark Matrix Muck (Grease) even if you don't have an Aardvark custom. When storing your Matrix have bolt in forward-most position and remove battery. Accuracy -- please hold the flames. The Matrix is very accurate with a good paint to barrel match as is any marker. It's not more or less accurate then an Autococker or Angel. However, it has no kick which helps steady the marker in rapid fire.
Aardvark only made 15 Tequila Matricies and I am one of the lucky ones! They will have a new model out soon called the "Hedron". Many people have had problems ordering them. Stock Matricies are ok but really need the recommend updates to truely perform. Stay away from Shocktech Matricies! They are overpriced and do not perform like Aardvark's Customs.
I would recommend an Aardvark Custom Matrix to anyone that wants a serious gun and never wants to chop paint. Many people trade their AutoCockers and Angels for these bad boys. Does that tell you something? I would rate the Aardvark Tequila Matrix a 15 but I guess 10 will have to do. :-P
