Upgrades:
If you have an older emag (pre 2003) then it might be a little heavy
Lightweight parts are available, can make it lighter than the new X-Mag
Strengths: Highest rates of fire, fastest recharging valve
Level 10 = no chops
AGD = reliability & C.S.
Weaknesses: Emags need the Level 10 upgrade, the new ones come with it stock.
Review: Im a long time Automag user, (since 1994) and I have never had any problems with my mag. AGD makes amazingly reliable products and the E-Mag is possibly the most reliable electronic marker available. It can fire 20,000 shots on a single charge, and if you accidentally spill acid all over your electronics and fry the board then you can switch to manual mode and keep playing all day long!
The new ULE bodies are awesome! They make the E-mag lighter, better looking, and more accurate due to Angel ball detents and cocker threaded barrels (the old AGD twist lock may cause the barrel to move a little, meaning less consistency/acuracy) the new cocker threaded bodies make sure that you have a solid shooting platform.
Also the new X valve is a stock feature on the emag, it's all aluminum so it makes the mag even lighter. Also new for the stock emag is the Level 10 bolt upgrade, this is a bolt that will bounce off of paint instead of chop through it.
I have my trigger adjusted so that I can walk it very nicely, high rates of fire are easy to achieve, and the balls seem to land right on top of eachother...right in the middle of the guys goggles im shooting at.
Conclusion: Emags are great guns, X-mags are better but the differences are almost insignificant, performance wise they are the same. Performance wise all high end guns are pretty much the same...( all guns have to crono at the same fps right? )The e-mag is just more reliable, a lot more reliable. Plus if something does happen to go wrong with your mag Airgun Designs will usually fix it very quickly...unlike some companies that take months to return your gun, because they have to go to england, and may end up in the bermuda triangle...
