Like Deathwish said, we had looked at DYE guns before, but I had shied away from the Matrix series because of the need for a custom manifold. Completely forgot that the PMR used standard fittings and tubing.
Actually your right,the 1st gen(07-2010?) used a different soleniod similar to a MAC noid with a gasket between the body and noid,all air passages were machined in the body,it would take a manifold setup like you said,probably not worth the effort as the gasket was the main problem with them,my 2 leeked from day 1,I used Indian Head gasket auto goo to fix it,holding after a almost a year of play,1 is my nephews now
Got paint,air and extra gripframe today,with some minor Dremmell work it fits and cycles,still able to convert it back to electro also,I also traded an Upgraded Ion for it ,hes my nephews BF,wanted a gun I could teach him to work on that is more trouble free,we play full ramp woodsball so I couldnt convice him to go mech
I"ll get a shooting vid and pics up this weekend now that I have paint& air

Backyard vid test

Finished and did a backyard test without crono,cycles and works good,seems the velocity is a little low,still need to do minor trigger adjustments
I bought an extra frame to Dremmel out a portion behind the trigger,my 1st attempt I drilled a 1/4 in. hole behing the trigger,it cycled fine but hose routing led to leeks
2nd attempt,removed portion of frame behind the trigger completely down to the board mounting bracket,there is a perfect slot for the SMAV valve,used some double faced auto trim tape to secure it firmly
I wanted to be able to reconvert it back to electro so I did minimal cuts,I'll come up with a better bracket if need,theres limited space in this triggerframe and would have to enlarge space to accomidate bracket.Its no where near a drop in kit like it an Ion
Heres a testfire vid

Would be cool,need better pics let me know,better yet if you guys want to borrow it Id be up for that
You may recognize the front fitting also,bought it from you ,had to heat tubing in hot water to get it to fit but no leak as far as i can tell,I wonder what effect the QEV has on it if any
Unforunately our gamedays cancelled for Easter so I wont get a crono and field test for 2 weeks

Actually prefer the hex heads to allen heads,easier to get a boxend wrench in tight places than even ballend allens,considering converting most of my fitting to the hexes
They were a tight fit but wont ever have a leak from the hose barbs

Hey punisher068, was wondering what happened to your build? What did the final product look like?

Thanks

Pretty much ended up like the above pics with a small bracket added.
It works but had a hard time getting it to crono over 260,same issues as the electro version,I'll need the bolt spacers similar to the Dye NT to get velocity up I'm thinking
Good news was that I was able use the PMR electro noid with a SP1 Blackheart board for my current bullpup build
