The new Matrix VI features jaw dropping body style, a new balanced on/off bottom line, adjustable clamp neck, a new lower pressure bolt kit, new and improved LPR, metal logo inserts and a two piece barrel. With all of that we still managed to shave .5 inches off the height and 4oz. off the weight of the marker. We built the Matrix VI with one idea in mind: to help put you at the top of the podium.
The Proto Matrix M6 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
ultra lite frame if not too expensive for you or a virtue board
-new barrel(dye ultralite)
easy to shoot
Not air efficient.
Stock 12 inch barrel.
i just got my proto matrix today and i love it. shot 1 month old diablo heat paint and shot good still. my proto matrix is all blue dusted wich is one of the best lookin markers out too date. the only thing is that if you want to go above 18 bps then i suggest you get a proto responce board, virtue board, tadao board, or a dye ultralite frame. the accuracy on this gun is probaly the same on a dm6 or dm5. the proto is the SAME EXACT thing as the dye dm6 but just without the dye parts so my suggestion is that if you dont have proto then get one and if you do good dor you!
this gun is the lowest priced gun that is at the same time the best gun for people who like to rip it on the field.if you like to just have a good gun that is like over $1,000 then shame on you. U MIGHT AS WELL GET A PROTO
Proto pm6 (Blue)
Halo B (Blue)
Dye Ultralite Barrel (Blue)
I've heard the UL Frame is nice
Havent shot it yet, so I cant comment on that
I got my pm6 yesterday and I was so surprised that the pics of this gun online really don't do it justice. The milling is beautiful as well as the on/off and trigger. The problem was that when I screwed in my nitro tank and went to shoot...nothing. I think the problem is the bolt but i'm not sure. If anyone has any ideas on whats wrong with this marker please comment. Once I get this gun up and running i'll write an actual review.
Will review once I have it firing. Comment with any ideas on whats wrong with it or if u had a similar experience with this gun. thanks.
New Trigger (if you're not going to get ultralight frame)
Cool paint job
Easy to use
Crappy Stock Board (kinda slow right out of Box)
Crappy Stock Trigger
When I went to my paintball shop...
I went to the shop looking for a gun in the $900-$1000 range. Tried an Angel... didnt like it, used timmy...nah. But what is this? Two guns, staring right at me. The DM5 and the PM6. It was hard to decide.. but i finaly chose the PM6. I really wanted the Black/Blue to match my gear but hey didnt have it in stock. I told them to order it for me. A couple days later the phone rang. "Mac could you get that please get that?" "Fine." I push talk "Helo?"
"OK thanks!" They had just gotten my gun! So I went over and picked it up.
When I saw the box I wased amazed at how small it was! I opened it up. Inside there was a parts kit, a manual, a set of allen keys, dye slick lube, a barrel condem, a barrel, and the amazing looking PM6. Instincively I screwed the barrel on, turned it on, and messed with the settings and trigger. I took it apart and was amazed at how easy it was to clean. I loved it, and couldn't wait to run some paint threw it!
At the field...
I was pumped, I wanted to rip some heads off with my new weapon of mass destruction. I air it up and give it to the ref for him to crono. Bam, Bam, Bam Good consistency for it being out of the box. It was shooting at around 260, which is to slow for me, I had to get it up to the limit 285. I go to the shooting range and secretly smile under my goggles as people stare wide eyed and open mouthed. Bam Bam Bam! Wow, I couldnt believe it, this thing ripped. I went to go play some hyperball, my first game, I was amazed My Proto was threw ropes through my lane. My fingers and trigger seemed as one, poetry in motion. I was stunned. I love and will always love this gun.
A must buy for anyone who is looking in the $900-$1000 range.
After a few upgrades this gun will rip! Just ask Legacy and Evil factory (Minion is just a PM6 with different milling and barrel).

None at all, especially after recommended upgrades.
This is a great gun. Very similar to the DM6 with the exception of the Ultralite Grip Frame, Stock Barrel Size, and other minor details. Out of the box the gun is great. Great looking, light, and an absolute BEAST. I purchased it for less than 700, keep hunting and you'll find a good price. If you do get a good price I would suggest upgrading with an Ultralite Gripframe (amazing addition and well worth the money). I sought out to upgrade the gun as close to a DM6 as could be, and in the end I like it better than the DM6.
Great Gun! Price hunt and you'll get a great price as well, and use that extra money for the upgrades and paint!

Wow this gun is amazing. My friend just bought a black one and i have been able to shoot it a little bit. When i first saw it when he took it out of the box I was blown away at its size. Then he handed it to me. It felt like i could throw it 50 yards. It is so amazingly light. When I shot it there was a little kick but not much. Thats where the orange bolt comes in. I was shooting white box army navy paint that i got for 20 bucks. It was so accurate. This gun is amazing. I am just about to order mine.
Proto Matrix M6 - Stock as of now
Halo B w/ rip drive
68/45 Pure Enegery N2
14'' Barrel (Dye ultralite)
Quiet (oh, so quiet)
NO KICK WHAT-SO-EVER
The trigger pull stock out-of-the-box seems long
Wow. Ok, just got this bad boy.. Out of the box, no leaks, no problems, sweet. Now to shoot it. I was in awe, it was so quiet and needed no adjustments out of the box. I woudn't say it shoots ropes out of the box like most people do, but with some velocity/LPR adjustment and a 14'' barrel it is probably INSANE. Its so fast, the eyes are easy to turn off/on and clean. I had the eyes off and shot it while the tank wasnt sitting on my shoulder and the gun did not kick back at all. Its so incredibly light, great for any position. This is a must have for tournament players. Forget 1000+ guns save this and put a couple upgrades on it, its all you need.
Add a UL Frame, 14'' barrel and your set, no need for anything else maybe a board. If u have 725+ dollars, get this you'll save money and be HAPPY. I am...
lasoya promaster, xsv ego, empire timmy 06, and the ion but that doesn't really compare
Blue 2006 Proto Matrix
cp roller trigger
Blue Halo B with rip
45/45 macdev legion air
the obvious-halo or evo2, HPA
later on think of the hybrid bolt guide a cp trigger (stock pretty good though), virtue board or ultra light frame
Complete out of box
Bolt has 10 o-rings
Internal fragile wires
14 would've been better than 12in
I opened it and was amazed at the milling, I picked it up and it was so light. The pictures you see mean nothing until you actually et to hold it. I went out to the alley and ripped a pod through it, and i broke one ball, but i realized that i hadn't turned the eye on. So i turned it on and put 3 more pods through and didn't chop. I was easily able to hit 15 bps no prob. also efficiency i got like 800 shots from a 45/4500.eh
shoots ropes no problems yet just lube it and your good BUY IT NOW

Got this guna about 3 months ago. SICK gun , out of the box is looks so good, pure secks, aired it up and it shot ropes, took it to the field the next day, shot ropes all day, have never had a single problem with it since then, u just gota be good at lubing it and ull be fine
Only thing i can think of is, non external trigger ajustments
I got this in the mail a few days ago, I get home exited and open the box, WOW this gun is nice, the picture do it no justice, comes complete with the manual, small allen key set dye lube. everything you need
I read over the manual and set everything up nicely, the trigger is a little bit hard to ajust but its manageable
Time for some paint, all i can say is this guns is FAST, shot lazers.. has decent efficiency on my 68/4500 i got about 1500 shots
Took it out to the field: gun chronod at +/- 5 fps, out of the box thats pretty good
shot ropes all day long no chops no problems
dye/proto really outdid them selves with this gun
All in all this is a very good marker, can't get much better this this, especially for the price
