This is the definitive Matrix upgrade guide. Iíll go in order of what is most critical to get.
There are several bolt kits available for the Matrix, including these:
The best in many opinions, the Evolve bolt promises 1750 shots from your 68/45 tank. However Evolve does not ship to the US.
Produced by Team Lockout, many Freeflow items are availialbe for autocockers as well. I havenít heard anything about this bolt, if you know about it please PM me.
The new Aardvark Slam bolt kit is out, and as of now, no one knows much about it. Should be high quality like most Aardvark products, though.
If your Matrix does not comes with eyes, there are two options.
These are a replacement breech and a Tadao 1.1 board for $220. A good deal in my opinion, these eyes are installed by TMC as well.
If you donít want TMC eyes, go to matrixowner.com and buy eyes from Doby45 or Flipflops. You WILL need special drilling for this, ask around.
There are several Matrix boards available, but there is only one that is really worth it:
This board has basically everything you need, including debounce, fonrt pulse, back pulse, and much more. Basically, if youíre looking for a nice board, go Tadao.
This section covers LPRís and HPRís.
There are several LPRís available, but two of the best, and most recommended are the:
This LPR is self compensating, meaning you only have to set it once. A very nice reg.
Aardvark Trinity (and variations)
This LPR is identical in performance and internals to the PBC LPR. It is very consistant and a nice reg for the price if you donít mind setting it when you play.
There are so many HPRís out there, itís hard to know which to get. Several stand out from the crowd.
I personally have not used CP regulators, but have heard that they are very nice.
Mac Dev produces the Gladiator line of regulators, which is very consistant. I currently use one, and it has never let me down.
Dye makes the Hyper line of regulators, which comes stock on the DM4. This is a very nice reg, and fairly easy to maintenance from what I have heard.
There are a few triggers for the Matrix, most are more cosmetic than performance-oriented, but all should be easier to walk/pull than the stock one.
This trigger rides on rolling bearings making it easy to pull. This is a trigger that many Matrix enthusiasts choose to use.
Aardvark Tentacle, Alligator, and Switch.
This trigger looks very hot, and uses springs.
This trigger has grooves all the way down the trigger to make it very easy to rake. Uses springs.
This trigger looks similar to the CP roller, but uses springs. Itís quite easy to fan with.
If there is anything I have left out or should add, please PM me or post. Thanks!
