Stock trigger isnt great
I am writing this review on the Airgun Designs X-Mag. I own X-mag XT00218. The only upgrade that I have had to put on this gun is a new trigger, I didn't much like the feel of the stock trigger.
Speed- This gun is very fast, even though this gun has no modes or anything like that with the 3.2 software, it will shoot wonderfully in Semi. I am not that great at walking a trigger, but I can get around 13-14bps. The magnetic return in the X-mag make the trigger action very smooth, there are no snappy springs, just pure glide, and once you get a trigger with a roller bearing, the trigger pull is blissful.
Reliability- C'mon, are you serious? Its a friggen Mag! This gun is the most reliable gun I have ever used outside of my Phantom. It literally has one internally moving part, what is there to screw up? As long as you keep the gun oiled and maintained, then it will perform very well for you. But make sure you watch the noid plunger, it may slip after 20000 shots or so. Yes, I have put at least 10 cases through this thing, and Im not even the original owner.
Small- Due to its single tube design and single moving part, this gun is very small. Its about the same size as a shocker.
Mech Backup- In the rare case that you have something wrong with the electronics, there is a switch you can flip that will make this marker a mechanical RT mag, just like that. Amazing!
Battery- Although a replacement is kinda spendy, mine is going on 4 years now, and still gets me through a couple days of play. The battery will provide you with up to 20,000 shots off of one charge, and even makes for a nifty foregrip.
Looks- This is one hot looking marker. It curves well and the look of the whole gun is amazing. This is of course personal preference, but many people find these guns amazing.
Never Chops- After having 10 cases of paint through my X-mag, I can honestly say that I have never chopped once. This marker has a Level 10 bolt, which is super soft on paint, as well as having a reflective ACE system.
Stock Trigger: The stock trigger isnt wonderful. I played with the stock trigger for about 4months, and it works just fine, and after getting used to it will work great, but I would reccomend getting a Tunablade or a Fireblade.
One of the best markers on the market...period. Speed, reliability, eyes. What more could you want.
