Lvl 10

Q: How do I install a Lvl 10/LX bolt? Pictures? Diagrams?

A: Right off the AGD website:
http://www.automags.org/resource/lev...html#faststart

It has some great info and cool videos.

Q: When I pull the trigger on my mag, there is no pressure on the trigger; it just flops around. Is something wrong? Am I missing a spring?

A: Don't worry my good son! The mag trigger is not returned with a spring like an autococker/spyder/tippman or electronic gun. Instead, the mag trigger is returned with air pressure from the valve (this is the reason that the trigger pull is stiffer than most other guns). So until you gas up the gun, you will not have any pressure on the trigger.

I'm going to add a little bit to your post if you don't mind Vayp.

If you gas up the gun and the trigger still has no resistance turn the velocity up. Pretty soon you should hear the sear click out. The trigger now has resistance but probably will need more pressure to actually shoot.

Q: What's the difference between all the types of E-mags? Stock E-mag, Micro E-mag, SFL E-mag, X-mag etc...

A:They're all the same performance wise. The differences are mostly cosmetic, but there are a few parts that differ between the guns.

Material:
E-mag - Stainless Steel body
Micro, SFL, X-mag - Aluminum body(body and body rail all one piece)

Barrel threads:
E-mag - Mag barrels
Micro, SFL, X-mag - Cocker barrels.

ACE:
E-mag, Micro E-mag - No ACE
SFL, X-mag - Come with ACE

Feed style:
E-mag - Powerfeed, warp feed(cut down powerfeed), vert feed
Micro - Vert only
SFL, X-mag - Interchangle breeches. Vert feed, warp feed(horizontal side feed).

Availability:
E-mag - available almost everywhere
Micro - fairly common. Not too hard to find online.
SFL - No longer made(only 49 ever made)
X-mag - Not yet in full production. the waiting list for one is very very long.

Stock barrel:
E-mag - Same as RT/RT pro. modified crown point barrel
Micro - Armson barrel
X-mag - half way decent AGD made barrel
SFL - DYE Boomstick

Q: What is the deal with the stars on the valves?

A: The stars are AGD's warrenty system. Each star earns you a free repair(covers work and soft parts like o-rings and springs, but hard parts like sears and reg pistons you still have to pay for). Classic valves have 1 star, minimag valves have 4 stars(soon to be reduced to 2 on new mini's), RT pro, ReTro, E-mag and X-valves all have 2 stars(though they're not always engraved).

The stars are good for 3 years from the date of manufacture so you can save them for when you really need them.

I have a Black Dragun and it's reliability is beginning to bother me and I am looking at a mag.

Q: Do I need to spend extravagant amounts of money if I want to be able to pull 10 or 13 bps like on the Black Dragun (or other electros)?


A:Really, there's 2 parts to your question.

You mentioned the BD's reliability and speed. You probally want both, but which are you willing to compromise? With a Mag you have the reliability and the potential for the speed. The stock Mag will not be as easy to pick up and shoot as a e-sear-tripper, but with practice it can. When you put in those upgrades (X-Valve, Intelli....) you will have increased performance, increased speed and of course a lighter wallet.

Thanks for the quick reply! Yes that does answer most of my question. But I my new revised question is:

Q: How do I make a mag fast for cheap?

A: The fastest, cheapest way is to just use it. Learing the trigger is a simple way to shoot fast. Buy a case of paint and go play!

Q: My valve is leaking out the back, is it time to replace the regulator piston?How do i take out the regulator piston?

A: It could be several things
1) dirt on the reg seat
2) shooting hot
3) the reg piston working and blowing off extra pressure. This can come from installing a Lvl 10.

The simpler fixes are to clean the reg seat and check the velocity. You can get to the reg piston by unscrewing the regulator halves, taking out the velocity nut and spring pack and pushing the piston out the back.

Q: What is this Sydarm I keep hearing about?

A: The Sydarm is a specially modified automag made specially for Police/military/special forces training. It featured a classic valve with an aluminum regulator back half, a 12 gram adapter, a horizontal spring clip, a short barrel, and a single trigger. These were not sold to the public, but every once in a while you can see them on ebay or in the trading forums. Used they usually sell for about $500.

A: Are you sure the tank is full? Does it work on another marker? If it's HPA, is it more than 800psi pressure? If the tank is full, try turing up the velocity of the Mag. Do about 1/4 turn and test the trigger untill something happens.

What's the output pressure of the tank? Low or High? If it's a Low pressure tank it might be the prob. Has it ever worked before? If so, what has changed?
