Period of
Product Use:
1 year
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Marker Setup: Currently 2 markers: 1) Automag RT with Lvl 10 Upgrade & Armson Stealth Barrel 2) Evil Omen EF-1 with Hammerhead w/ Fin Kit Barrel (Both markers run on 68/4500 nitro tank)
Recommended
Upgrades:
The level 10 Upgrade is a must! Other than that, a good barrel and an electronic hopper both will help.
Strengths: rugged design, looks, speed (for a mechanical marker), balanced feel, RT trigger pull
Weaknesses: loud, breaks paint occaisionally (without level 10 upgrade), below average air efficiency
Review: I got this automag rt for next to nothing on Ebay. The seller was convinced it was a piece of junk. After sending it to AGD for the level 10 upgrade and minor repair work, the marker ended up costing me around $250. (Incidentally, I had to send it in to AGD twice because they messed up the first time, but that is another story.)

The first time I played with it after the work was done, I was amazed! The marker had a very solid feed. It fired accurately and consistently. The variation of fps at the chrono was only +/- 3 fps. This marker has the fastest trigger pull of any mechanical (non-electro) marker on the market without a doubt.

I have played with it in varoius recball situations, including rain, cold weather, dirt, sand, and mud. If you maintain it properly (which isn't hard), it won't let you down. I also have had no ball breaks in the breach since installing the level 10 upgrade.
Conclusion: I would highly recommend the automag rt or rt pro to anyone interested in a rugged recball gun that is consistent and reliable. The level 10 upgrade is also highly recommended to prevent ball breaks. The RT is probably a little too slow to keep pace with todays top dollar electros, but it is more dependable and less costly. I would give it a 10 if it were a little bit more air efficient, but that is really the only negative I can find on an otherwise fantastic marker.
