I got the minimag out yesterday and today thought I'd air it up and see if it was still working.
I was pretty disappointed at first because it wouldn't fire. I figured it was frozen from sitting so long, so I took apart most of the valve and oiled it up good. Put it back together and still nothing.
Then I started moving it around, tapping it...and it fired once or twice. Then I remembered that for some reason the Minimag doesn't "like" my 12" SS Boa barrel. I don't know why, but for some reason it won't fire with that barrel in the gun. So I switched out the barrel and everything fired great!!
The only problem is my warpfeed wasn't performing very well. Not sure if I need to adjust it or if it's just from sitting or what. I switched in a new battery and it worked a little better, but still disappointing. I sure hope I can get the warp to perform because I like the profile of the gun with the hopper down.
So now it's time to just wait for the weather to get better, maybe take it to the field in April. I have a lot of barrels laying around that I'd like to try with it, hopefully I won't have a repeat of the problem with the SS Boa.
