I recently picked up a classic 68 automag. I took it out tothe field and it worked perfectly. Then I took it to an indoor field where the chrono speed was 200 or less. At this speed the gun would only fire once everyfour trigger pulls, on the other three shots you could hear gas being released andthe ball would roll out the barrel. If you paused for a solid 1-2 secondsbetween each shot it would fire normally. When I turned the fps back up the gun cycled normally. I was wondering why my mag doesn't like the low chrono spreed.Is this something you'll see on all mags? All blow forwards? Is there any wayto fix this?

Insert something clever here. Preferably something that makes me look cool.

Back when I started playing at an indoor field in 1991 our chrono speed was 220. The mags then would work with that just fine, but 200 or under is just rediculous. The mag is basically just a regulator, and you are probably just not getting enough pressure for it to work properly. How close are you from the limit? You can try using a large bore barrel with small bore paint to lower it a few points, but dang, 200 is crazy.

Thanks for the info; I had a feeling that was the problem.200 seems really low but they use powder balls which even at that speed hitharder than regular paint.

Yeah. 200 and lower is just ridiculous. You might as well use a sling shot or toss the paint. Anyway...thats exactly the problem, the mag isnt getting enough air.

The mag needs enough air pressure to overcome the tension of the spring on your bolt. If you want to shoot at that low a velocity (I would find a new place to play, honestly), you could try finding a lighter spring... The problems you may run into are the spring not being strong enough to reset the bolt, decreased ROF because the spring isn't able to return the bolt's mass as quickly...

Again thanks for the info. I can imagine a light enough spring would be hard, if not impossible to come by…to bad.

With the powderballs the field uses, you don't even notice the low speed…assuming your gun works.

I’d love a PGP if I wasn’t broke. I still have my trusty Phantomfor the few times I play indoors.

phone the AGD guy and tell him you need to set-up a 68 to shoot at 200FPS, he may have a spring or even suggest a spring to cut down and how far to help.
the biggest issue will be getting past the spring, after that its getting the air there.
