    Just got a matrix, any do's and don'ts

    Hey I orderd a led push button matrix from paintballwizard and I am supposed to get it in on Thursday. Can you help me out with some things I should and shouldn't do to it. Thanks

    What should I set my armageddon tanks' psi at also?

    MODS- Sorry I couldn't realy find any other place to put this but if you know of a better place to place this please feel free to.

    That pink GOO that ur supposed to put on the bolt assembly or whatever - DO NOT USE A LOT, just a thin, thin amt. on whatever it needs to be put on.

    A buddy of mine literally slapped on mad amounts of this stuff, and it massively gunked up his Trixie. was nasty..... He has sent it into the Matrix Center 2x in the past month and a half. Massive solenoid problems as result of the goo and other crap mixing, and entering it.

    i hear you need bolt kits, and its no myth that trixes are gas hogs. people say that the smallest tank you should have for a trix is a 88/4500 (600-700 shots, yes i read this on a review on pbreview). so basically, dont shoot very much or have a huge tank

    I herd from the matrix center guys not to use that Dow 33 stuff, also some people said to grease it up before I even use it, and to set my armageddon and 500 and my reg at 200, and that I should check my reg and make sure it works first because it will act as a gas threw and **** up my solenoid (how do I check it out?).

    DO: keep it, keep o-rings lubed (buy some Matrix Muck), get a bolt kit (wait for lee's), get a LPR of some sort (trinity), good inline reg... fast hopper (halo b/egg2). And a few o-ring kits of course.

    DON'T: 1)sell it
    2)trade it for a mag
    3)sell it and use the $ to buy a mag/upgrade your current one


    A mag shouldn't compare to it, unless we're talkin about a ULE E-mag or an X-mag....

    LOL I just ordered it and I need to sell my mag to pay for it, trust me I don't like automags wouldn't buy another one, and the next gun I am going to get after this one will probably be a viking anyways. I was going to get the aardvark bolt kit.

    Do: Bolt kit, LPR(front reg), and fast hopper as already mentioned.
    : spare o-rings are a good idea(doesn't even need to be a few kit as only a couple have a tendancy to go bad)
    : learn proper bolt assembly
    : get a LP pressure gauge on the reg
    : always push the bolt out don't pull it
    : message me if ya have any specific questions
    : great info resource www.aardvarkdirect.com

    donts: don't believe the negative hype about the matrix. main 2 are high maintanence and gas hog(I've got 2, I lube bolts maybe once a month at most, play just about every weekend and have only had 1 oring go bad on me since march last year. and I get plenty of shots out of me 68/45

    : don't over lube(frequent lubing is ok... just don't make the bolt look like a frosted donut)
    : don't over pressurize the gun(blow out the solonoid)
    : don't hesitate to ask me or anyone at aardvark any Q's

    Whoa there, Skippy!
    It's cool that you're getting a Matrix and all, but 'dissing 'Mags, on a Mag forum, when Mag owners are trying to help you???

    Screw you, hippie

    Jesus man, lay off.

    He wasn't dissing the Mag at all. All he was saying was that they weren't his preference. People are allowed to like different guns you know.
