Marker:Proto Matrix 8 (PM8)
Condition:8/10?  Only thing it needs is an eyepipe and barrel o-ring.
Color:Blue Steel
Upgrades:Dye locking feedneck, wired eyes
Known Problems:Works fine but needs new eye pipe and barrel o-ring
Asking Price: $250 shipped via usps
Shipping Options: USPS preferred.
Trades of interest:None
Location of item:Oshkosh, WI
What is Included:Proto Pm8, case, standard repair kit which comes with all pm8's, allen keys, user manual, barrel.

 

This is a used Blue Steel Proto Matrix 8.  I'm selling it because I just don't use it anymore.  It has a few scratches on the sides but nothing more than normal wear and tear.  It needs a new eyepipe and barrel o-ring.  Gun works great.  Really smooth and consistent.  I always took care of it and kept it in it's case.  I cleaned and lubed it after every few times I played with it.  It has always been used with compressed air, no CO2!  Only played in one game of one tournament outside of regular backyard paintball.  It may be a rare color.  I've never seen another Pm8 the same color at my local field.  If you want more pics just lmk.

 

UPDATE: I was looking it over again and realized the barrel is missing the o-ring.  I don't think it matters as I used it many times without it but just wanted to let you all know.  I also posted a video showing the gun and it cycling through.  I'm also going to throw in an o-ring bolt kit for the gun aswell as a few stickers.

 

I will ship it out once I receive cleared payment via paypal.  I ship out ASAP.  Its likely that if I'm not at work I will ship it out shortly after you've paid. 

 

Here's my feedback on Techpb:

I also have %100 feedback on ebay.  I'm a legit guy just trying to have a smooth transaction with someone.

Since I don't have an eye pipe for it I can't shoot it.  I guess I could cycle the gun without shooting any balls...

I posted a video.  The broken eye pipe was is in it.  I just cycled the gun and tried to show it off a little.  No leaks, no problems.

Just for future reference, as far as I know the barrel did not come stock with an o-ring (at least on the part that attaches to the body, there was an o-ring in between the two halves). People (myself included) put a good size o-ring on them to prevent the barrel from screwing in too far and putting pressure on the eyepipe and cracking it, which it sounds like is exactly what happened.

Thanks Lotus.  Wish I would have known that while I used it... lol

I don't know how to ship out of the country and that's too low, I've had another offer of 225 in the states.

How bad is the issue with the O-ring and Eyepipe? Is the gun completely unusable without replacing or does it shoot fine but you recommend replacing?

It needs a new eye-pipe.  They're cheap, like 10 bucks.  The o-ring  between the two barrel halves doesn't matter.  You could shoot it with the cracked eye-pipe that's in it but it might break paint or something.

 

Apparently, putting an o-ring towards the threads of the barrel prevents the barrel from screwing in too far and cracking the eye-pipe.  Because I didn't know this before, I cracked the eye-pipe.
