So I got my new [old] automag 68 classic today in the mail. Aaannd I need a bit of help.
The guy i bought it from told me that the trigger needs adjusted for it to fire, and as I'm looking at it I see the trigger doesn't adjust the same way a normal trigger does.
So how do I go about doing this?

Next! what can you tell me about this beaut? He tells me it's a 1 of 1 custom built Eclipse mag that he for the most part built.

(in pic 2) Do you see the little hole above the trigger on the top left? you've got to put an allen wrench in it and loosen and or tighten it accordingly

Wait.. which hole? the one infront of the safety? Cause that's not a hole it's got a pin in it.

when you see your friend or go to a field ask someone if you can use one of theirs (that fit)

Well, i've got a full set, but they can't fit under the trigger gaurd. and the ones that do are too small.
Thanks for your help though! How do you adjust the velocity on it?

Actually, that hole is not for adjusting the trigger. There is supposed to be a bolt through that hole which holds together the body, rail, and trigger frame. You need that bolt.

The trigger can't be adjusted. The only part of the trigger that can be adjusted is the trigger rod on the sear. Have you tried airing it up and firing it?

I posted in your gallery thread...

View Postaqua_scummm, on Mar 5 2008, 09:26 AM, said:

Sorry to bump from page 2, but two heads up (figured I would post instead of PM for others' benefit)

1) That is a smart parts venturi barrel. Now discontinued, of course, partially because it's ugly as hell

2) Be wary of mags with trigger jobs, looks like you might need to adjust that one. There's typically a range of adjustments on the trigger rod that will work, but the AGD factory settings work all the time and work very well.

The rod behind the trigger is threaded into the sear assembly. Gas up the marker, and point the marker down so the trigger falls all the way forward. The trigger rod should be pushed forward as it is (due to the mag being gassed up). There shouldn't be much gap between the farthest forward position of the trigger, and the trigger rod, the difference between the two should be between the thickness of a poker card and a credit card.

This ensures that the trigger isn't limiting the trigger rod's forward position at all, which can cause a variety of problems.

If you disassemble it, be sure to completely de-gas. on/off valves on mags take off like a bullet... almost.




And sorry, that's not even close to being 1 of 1... Those kits were super popular, and common, back in the day... and it's not custom built, nor can a mag really be custom built, save for some pretty intense custom shops. Basically that mag was either bought with the kit, or someone bought the kit afterwards and just re-assembled it. A search of "eclipse splash kit" will show they came in many colors

Hope you didn't get ripped off

here is a video where the guy takes out his trigger
Automag68

Since yours is a custom gun i'm not sure if it can be adjusted normally. I suggest you email the guy you got it from and ask how to adjust the trigger
that should take care of the problem

The velocity adjustment is done by turning the threaded piece on the back of the valve, with an allen key. In for higher FPS, out for lower.

EDIT: Looked again, you seem to have one of those dial-a-welt style adjusters... same way to adjust but you can do it by hand I think. Don't know how to lock it (hopefully you can :blink:). And it appears you're missing the screw that holds the frame to the rail in the front.

-Z3R0

He's got a thumb adjuster it seems


edit after Z3R0's edit: there's typically 2 set screws you screw in after you adjust it, they end up hitting the back of the valve. Then you can't screw in any further, but you can screw out.
