Review: Well I bought this gun before the level 10 or the Halo B was out. Sadly I chopped so much (by so much I mean multuple times every game) with it that I let it go. I am a real mag lover and it was not an easy decision. At the time virtical feed barrels were difficult to get a hold of too. Thus I learned to hate the crown point stock barrel provided.

Huge progress has been made with the Emag since I let it go. Probably the most important is the creation of the Level 10.

YOU MUST BUY THE LEVEL 10!!!!
MUST BUY!!!!!

Now they make hoppers that can keep up with the Emag, Cool, I wish I still had the gun.

Battery 8
The first thing I noticed about the Emag was the battery pack on the front of the gun. I looks pretty uncomfortable but actually was not too bad. I was a little heavy and jigled around a little. The battery pack must be removed to rechang every time. This was annoying because my compressed setup got in the way. The removable battery is a good idea if a secondary battery wasn't so expensive.

Charger 10
I had some trouble chargin the battery the first couple of time, I got allot of half changes that didn't last the day. After several uses the charger seemed to work better, weard. A nice feature about the AGD charger is that it can take a simple 12v wall wart plug. No need to buy an expensive wall to car adapter so you can charge the battery inside.

Grip Frame 10
The Emag is the fat heavy grip frame. I is heavy because it has an over sized Selenoide to pull the mechanical trigger. This both good and bad. Bad because it is heavy and makes the power requirements higher. Good because it makes it more reliable than other electronic grips. The frame also has a LED display, this is easy to read in all conditions. Not sexy but it works well.

Triger/Modes 10
The magnit trigger is different. I liked it. Electro mode was nice and snappy, easy to shoot fast when learned. Hybrid mode... "the thing shoot on it's own". Manual mode shoots just like an RT but the double trigger is very nice. I used manual several times when I first got the gun. charging problem.

Body 8
Just like any other mag, rugged/heavy. Well not so rugged when you friend picks it up by the barrel and drops it on the feed neck. I had the polished body, it quicly lost it's original shine because of numerous small scratches. Also my friend dropped it and the feed neck broke off. Guns get abused and they should handel it.
Conclusion: Overall I like this gun. It should be very useable now that the level 10 and halo B are out. The gun shoot pleanty fast, plays tight, performs right. It is bassically an RT but electoronic. I think the new aluminum X mag should be a much better replacement, but the Emag is a solid(heavy) gun.
