i think i will ask again becuase i only got one answer and i dont think it was personally a good one (no offense)


im looking into getting a mag but i cant justify spending atleast 480.00 or more for something i havent really ever had a chance to try or have any experience with.

age/weight/rate of fire dosnt matter, the only thing that does it quality and i know that isnt an issue with a mag

price is slightly, i would rather have something that works then dosnt but i dont want to have to sell a kidney

all responses would be appreciated.

Find a used Classic using the PBBucket Classifieds or Elite Deal Seeker. Alternatively, you can just look through the B/S/T's on Automags.org (among others but I'd say that's your best bet).

I guess I can try that but it does it without the barrels on too...just quicker with the barrel on....




Sorry, I misunderstood you.  I thought you meant it was ok without the barrel but once a barrel was put on it acted up.  Oh well, good luck!

A minimag is a great place to start. I prefer right feed, but some don't mind powerfeed. With a classic valve you can run co2 and you won't have to worry about level 10 since you won't be outrunning most hoppers.

Dude, just pony up the cash from the outset, and build yourself a nice RT Custom or Tac1 on AGD's online store. It took me a while, but once I did, I was SOOOO happy. Now I have a marker that I can almost count on never seeing another of at any field, and I know what kind of shape it's in, and it is completely MINE.

Ebay is the place.
People waste more money buying upgrade parts for a mags.
If you just buy a nice RT ULE with Xvalve to start with you will save a bucket of money.
Then all you need is a nice clamping feedneck and the barrel kit of your choice. :)
Theres one on Ebay now I'd buy if I needed one. Great price with 21 hours left.

That ones worth every bit of $350.00 so go buy it now before I have to !

Then you can do this to it :

Ebay.
Pick up a Classic or Minimag for $75. More if it comes with neato stuff like tnaks and good barrels.
Probably pick up a o-ring kit from AGD, depending on the condition.
Watch the Tech video on Youtube.

Once you're more comfortable, you can later invest in an RT or X valve. But not need to blow several hundred if you're not sure.

I picked up my first mag on a whim. I had a seriously upped A-5 with every performance mod possible. I picked up a used classic at a field for $75. That was the last time I ever used the a-5. True story.

So I'm helping out a friend get into paintball. I gave him 3 good starting places. Automags, Tippmanns, and Spyders.

I stressed to him that automags are amazingly simple to work, clean, and maintain, but he's taking more of a liking to Spyders and mid-end electros like PMRs. I don't want him to go down the same route I did, so anyone here have a nice little tid-bits to help convince my friend? If I can't have a Mag, he should be able to.
