Beautiful DM7, you're on the list.
You like? Ive done a lot of work on this baby, treat it like my child. It has no scratches, came almost BNIB, upped and never used, with the original box
From the picture you posted I think it's beautiful. You're lucky you were able to get your hands on it in such good condition.

Pictures to get in
Very nice, you're in.
I found my Orange bolt earlier today when I was cleaning up my room (imagine that). When I first got my Eigenring, I couldn't get the two to work together, likely because of the pressure change caused by the Eigenring in the chamber and the lightweight bolt. The marker would fire a few times and then blow forward, tearing off the forward tail o-ring and just dumping air out the front. I was too stupid to remember the Orange bolt came with its own "traditional" top hat (that I never used), so this was likely an issue that would happen with any top hat.
I lowered the dwell to 12 ms (10 was too low to cycle), set the LPR to just under 2.5 turns out, and lowered the Hyper 3's pressure before airing it up. The thing felt like butter in my hands. However, I sold my chrono a few weeks ago, so I don't know what it was shooting at. Something else I noticed was air was venting out of the back cap with each shot, which has never happened before to this degree with any Matrix I've owned.
I'm going to leave things how they are for the next time I go to a field. If I can get this baby to chrono at about 290 with good consistency and efficiency (note sure how it will be because of the rear venting, not sure why that is happening either), it's staying this way, and I'll probably have the Orange bolt polished since the metal portions aren't really as smooth as the stock bolt's finish anyway. I'm excited to see where it's shooting, but I'm also trying not to get my hopes too high because there's a good chance this isn't going to work out.
