Review: I was very impressed with the Devil Mag from the moment I first got it. I have made some custom modifications to it, mostly cosmetic. Recently I had the frame upgraded to the 90deg. frame- it originally had a hyperframe on it, and had the board upgraded to the Predator 5.0. The trigger on the new frame had a bit too much side-to-side play than what I like, so I installed some extremely thin brass washers on both sides between the trigger and frame, and then oiled and broke them in. Most people will probably like the trigger just fine as it is. I have been using my Devil Mag extensively and love it. I have owned or used just about every type of marker made, and can honestly say that the Devil Mag is probably the fastest, and easiest to shoot fast than any other marker out there. The trigger and switch feel is just incredible. In pure semi-auto mode (no ramping) it is easy to shoot 20bps strings. In the faster ramping modes it totally outshot a standard HALO, and my HALO with v35 board could barely keep up. In full auto and hyper ramping modes it outran the v35 HALO. If being used like this, it needs a Q-loader! A good consistant and fast-recharging HPA system such as Crossfire or MacDev is a must with this marker to get the best performance from it. As much as I love my custom E-cockers and Shockers, I almost always grab the Devil Mag when playing fast-paced games and speedball. This marker is also one of the easiest to maintain and keep working, as the valve uses all AGD parts and o-rings. At first I was using only the level 10 bolt, and gas efficiency sucked, I was only getting a little over 1000 shots from a full 68/4500 fill. With the break beam eyes, dual detents and HALO, I knew that the Mag would not chop balls from mis-feeds, so I switched to level 7 bolts, and now am getting about 1100 shots from a full fill, which is still not very good. With the lvl10 bolt, I rarely broke balls with good paint and was able to match the paint to barrels very closely. I started off with a stock AGD foamyless bolt, and was breaking about 1 in every 100 to 150 balls. Using a slightly oversize bore in the .690 to .693 range, I was able to cut breaks in half. I then switched to a foamy venturi bolt, and at first the results were the same. I noticed that there was a gap between the bolt and ball, so I took a hollow punch and make thicker, softer foamies from an old thick mouse pad. This eliminated the gap and now I can shoot tourney-grade paint and have only seen a few breaks in the last 5 or 6 cases of paint. If efficiency is not an issue, then I would probably recomend using the lvl10 bolt. After tweaking the bolt and barrel match, I prefer the lvl7 and better efficiency. Personaly, I love tinkering with my markers, so I actually found the bolt issues to be fun. With a good barrel set-up, the Devil Mag was very accurate and velocity very consistant. I could send ropes of paint right on target at any reasonable range. Also this marker just exudes high quality and it draws a lot of attention from just about every one. I play extensively at 5 local fields, and have not yet seen another one, so it has a very high exclusivity factor as well.
Conclusion: Despite the efficiency and bolt tweaking issues, I have to give the Devil Mag a solid 10 rating, it is just that good. Once set up properly, I personally think that very few markers can touch it in both performance and WOW factor.

Upgrades:
Nothing. i got a different barrel, but thats just my personal preference, they dont come with barrels anyways. this gun is upgraded as much as it can be. Get some IR3 grips, but you will have to cut out part of the inside so they will fit with the solenoid
Strengths: Accuracy (its a mag)
Fast,
User friendly (with the predator)
Small
Weaknesses: Gas hog
The wait
Nobody knows how to fix them.
Parts are rare
Review: If your a mag lover you will love this gun. If you hate mags, you will love this gun. I had some problems with it when i first got it with chopping. It has eyes and i know they worked so it had to be a problem with the settings. I just delayed the time from when the eyes see a ball to when the gun will fire (mere milliseconds) and walla, fixed all my chopping problems. I have not chopped a ball since. With the level ten and eyes how is it possible to chop??! It has the small profile of an ion, the speed of a timmy or angel and the user friendliness of the predator 5.0. This also has the consistency of a mag as well. i shot 227, 227, 227, 227, 219, 227, 225. no Joke, i thought the chrono was busted or something until i shot the 219. Lastly, is the ease of maintenance. All you have to do is shoot some oil through it and its good to go like any mag. Field stripability is awesome and everything is so simple to fix.
Conclusion: This gun keeps up with anything out there. Wth the level 10 you practically elimiate chopping all together. I'm very impressed with it. Not worth waiting a year for though.

I have been much more impressed with my DM6

I give it a nine because parts are hard to find and the manufacturers turn around time is really really long.

Upgrades:
Kila Detents and Trigger
Strengths: AGD Quality & Speed
Light, Fast, Tight
Weaknesses: Maintenance is totally up to the end user since mft. is out of commission
Review: Aesthetics: The anodizing is very professional and extremely clean. It looks especially clean on the Dallara body/rail combo. The gun is light, small, and super tight. The 90º grip frame is comfortable and helps keep the marker tight.

Mechanics: When I first received my gun it had level 7 installed. I had to adjust the ULT and some of the software settings for the gun to fire appropriately. Even with the eyes on at first (with level 7) I was chopping every so often. I installed level X and readjusted the software a bit more and now I shoot 16 bps consistently and absolutely NO CHOPS and NO LEVEL X CHUFFS with eyes on.

The gun is now extremely reliable and never have to worry about chopping paint. I can keep up with anything out there. And no one else has anything exactly like this. It definately turns heads.
Conclusion: This is the ultimate paintball gun. AGD quality and recharge rate can not be beat. Combined with the electronics of the Predator board and Break beam eyes, this gun surpasses many, if not all, guns out there.
