Marker: Proto Matrix 7 (PM7)
Condition: 9/10 Mechanical (see known problems), 7/10 Cosmetic
Color: Stormtrooper (White with Black accents)
Upgrades: Ultralight Frame, Ironmen Trigger, Lever Clamping Feedneck, Ultralight 14" barrel tip
Known Problems: Eye ribbon is bunched up inside the grip frame. If the ribbon isn't inside the grip frame, the eyes will not work. However this has never been an on-field problem because you only notice it when the grips are open and the eye ribbon is loose and dangling. This problem may progress in the future though, so it's something to watch out for.
Asking Price: $245 including shipping and paypal
Shipping Options: flat rate box
Trades of interest: None
Location of item: Georgia, USA
What is Included: What is in the first picture. That's the PM7, the Proto Case (this one with a different logo), a set of allen wrenches, Dye lube, a barrel sock, and a small parts kit. I also have the manual printed on regular paper (not the original manual).
1) the eye ribbon seems to have a loose connection somewhere, but it only happens if it's out of shape outside the grip frame. The very act of closing the grips corrects it (never had it fail with the grips closed). This problem has not gotten worse for me, but it can potentially in the future. As you can see in the pictures, the eyes currently work.
2) The regulator has scratches around it. It looks like someone took a wrench to it and didn't know what they were doing. There are other tiny miscellaneous marks on the marker, but you'd have to look for them to see. These are the blatant marks that bring the cosmetics down.
3) I believe the grips are original from 2007 (I'm not the original owner), and so they bulge out at the back. It's not a problem (it's not like someone will be behind you, magically shoot through your hand holding the marker and hit your board), but I wanted to note it for full disclosure.
All this considered, this marker is in excellent condition with everything you could want. I'd compare if favorably even to a DM9 as it sits due to the lower profile, eye covers, and ergonomics.
note: that's not scratches/etc near the LPR, it's just needed to be cleaned.
If you have any questions, ask away. I will answer them promptly.
