"I have to tell you, Matrix Magnum motors are THE BEST! I absolutely love these things! I have bought 2 of them. A short type for my ICS L85, and a long type for a custom M16 build I did. The motor can pull an M130 like it's a nerf gun spring! I would use at least a 9.6V battery with the motor to get the full performance out of it. great trigger response, great ROF, and this thing has excellent strength! I would recommend Matrix motors for any upgrade or build!

"This is a great motor if you want your AEG to pull a hard spring but still have good rps at a fair price. I think that this motor, as many others say, is comparable to $100 systema motors. I use a 10.8v 5000mah battery with this motor and a m120 spring and still shoot 28rps.

-Pulls a hard spring with good rps
-High quality motor for a fair price

-Needs a fairly large battery 9.6 1600mah or higher is what i reccomend

"What can I say, this is a great Motor I fitted this easily into my Echo1 Red star and it shoots way harder and faster than before, I highly recommend it to anyone.

"GREAT motor, increases response time. Able to work with ANY battery and not just strong ones. I highly recommend this torque motor for anyone

"I bought this for my friend for his b-day when his CA36 stopped working. We didn't know exactly what was wrong with it, but it sounded like the motor in his gun was just too weak to turn the gears. So i bought this for him and installed it for him. (Which was a hassle because the G36 is such a tight squeeze on the inside) When i shot his gun to see if it worked, i was amazed by the firing rate! I hope his gun has high-grade gears inside because im worried that they will be stripped by the raw power of this motor if they are not. This is a great buy and i am completely satisfied with my purchase! Thanks Evike and thanks to Matrix products for the great customer experience.

"just installed this into my G36C, along with a pdi 190%(m120) spring. This motor is so powerful. It was holding my screw driver up through the plastic hand grip, which never happened on my stock motor. It is a great motor. It pulls back an pdi 190% or M120 spring very easily, while still maintaining the same rate of fire that I had with my stock motor and spring. DEFINITELY recommended.

"I bought this for my CYMA AKM .036. Stock the gun is incredibly accurate; ROF decent and Excellent (360-400+)FPS. After install of this motor, which only took me about 5mins total, while on the "john" LOL! All it took was a four-head screw and wire cutter.

Any-how, after some 1000 tests shots. Currently no crono. But I can say, definitely a increase in ROF, FPS, and trigger response. Bbs fly out in a blink and range is at least 2x farther. Trigger response was instant. Before motor swap, stock I was able to gently pull one bb at a time on Full-Auto mode. The Matrix motor hits fast with about 6 bbs flying out, compared to stock. The Matrix Magnum magnet strength is a bit over rated but it is some what stronger then a CYMA AK .036 motor. Overall test was on a 9.6v 4500mah battery.
Performance on 8v stock battery isn't worth talking about as the differences were not as much noticeable but satisfying too.
Another thing I noticed is heat. This thing heats up quick! After about a mag and a half I notice the handle becoming warm. I'm not sure if this is normal on magnum motors or aftermarket performance motors in general, but heat is a NO-NO...

FPS increase
ROF increase
Faster trigger response
Increased magnet strength

Heats up faster

full stars, I guess not today. If only heat was not so noticeable.

"I installed this motor in my CYMA M14, along with a PDI 210% spring, Elite 9.6v 1500mah battery and clean wiring with deans plugs. My stock motor was too weak to pull the PDI 210 back a few times without heating up a lot, and it did it verrry slowly, so I got this motor to retain my rate of fire.

Despite what I had read about Magnum motors, this particular motor is not a high speed motor, only a high torque motor. My M14 shoots only about 18 rounds per second with this motor, but the semi-auto is very fast, I can't just tap the trigger and make the piston stop partway back. It leads me to believe I can put a much heavier spring than the PDI 210 in my gun and it would turn over almost as fast. I was a little disappointed with this motor as it didn't live up to its high-speed rep, but since I use my M14 as a semi-auto only DMR, the merely average full-auto speed isn't an issue.

I would recommend this motor to anyone with a clone AEG, especially when upgrading your spring. Obviously you'd have to get the right shaft length for your gun.

I only installed this motor a couple days ago so I can't comment on its lifespan, but I have no complaints so far, other than the fact that it's not a high speed motor as well as a high torque motor like it was advertised as. But hey, it's only $45.

"Great motor. Pulls an m140 with no problems and still has a great ROF.

This thing turned my jg ak into a beast! increased FPS by about 50 and doubled its ROF that its stock motor originally put out. Also very easy to install, took less than 2 minutes..

"I have a echo1 g36 and i am looking to put this motor or the turbo version into it with an m120 spring, i'm pretty new to airsoft and i was wondering which one (if not both) of these motors can handle the m120, and still increase my ROF. (the echo1 g36 is stock)
