This gun is a beast. It can and will take the punishment you bring upon it and keep will keep on trucking. This thing is very easy to take apart and reassemble. Even a monkey can do it. It also has an outstanding rate of fire and you will never outshoot it. As far as quality goes, this marker is top of the line and will rarely let you down, if at all. If it does, ninety percent of the the time, the problem is user related. The accuracy and range are good but, like any marker, this greatly depends on your barrel. With my Dye Aluminum barrel, it is superb up until farther ranges. At farther ranges, the balls tend to curve. Also, with my current barrel, this thing is super quiet. As far as looks go, it is great to look at and even better if you customize it. I often get many questions about it at the local field because, where I'm at, Cockers have the majority. Mags aren't as popular here, but that adds to it's uniqueness. Despite the rarety of Mags here, most experienced people know a bit about Mags and help you out if you need help. As far as upgrades, you don't really need any, but any of the above listed upgrades just adds to the greatness of this marker. Lastly, their customer service is absolutely outstanding. I just recieved a video and manual on my marker for free. I bought this marker used, called AGD, and they offered to send these to me without a dime coming out of my wallet. I would have gladly paid shipping. Did I have too? No. This is not something normal nowadays. With all the commercialization of things, this company still maintains a personal connection with it's customers. To send instruction manuals and such for me buying a USED marker is awesome, in my opinion. They are also sending me a parabolic power feed plug for free! This is normally a 10 dollar item but they send you the first one free because it is an improvment over the standard plug.
Despite all of the good qualities, it does have a few flaws, as any marker does. The one glaring flaw is the fact that it breaks paint like crazy. I will accept part of the blame as it takes a while to get used to this trigger, but I will not accept all of it as there have been times that I know I was shooting well and would break a ball for no apparent reason. After you break one, more are bound to happen as the powerfeed doesn't do too well with broken paint in it. I find myself physically pushing balls into the chamber after a ball break. This is supposed to be fixed with a parabolic plug, which they are sending me for free, and plastic nubbins. The superbolt is awesome as well. Whenever I can find it in stock, I will get it. I have tried it with my buddy's mag and it reduces the recoil a great bit and he says it reduces paint breakage, which is always a good thing. This thing is also a bit heavy for some. I find it a perfect balance with a solid feel, myself, but others on the field say it's a bit heavy.
This marker is outstanding and would be perfect if it wasn't so hard on paint. Hopefully, the add-ons I recieve will eliminate my paint breakage problems, but even if not, I will still keep and use this marker. I blows away any of the budget markers and will keep on tickin' longer than I will, most likely. It is very simple and reliable. This simplicity is decieving, however, as it well outperforms what you would think it would do.
Atuomag RT....flatline nitro, ans foamie, drop forward, double trigger set up....
get a good double trig, get the freak barrel set , and then get a super bolt from airgun designs....
Dependable! Easy to work on especially compared to my autococker....
This gun is great and I feel secure when I step on a Sup Air feild with my team and I ball against the best guns made at least once a week....I son't worry about breaking paint unless I screw up and do a bad paint match to my barrel...other than that I shoot as much paint as the electros when I need to and I have great accuracey....not many of them out on the field...everyone wants to shoot it and I get a lot of "wierd" from it....but it's always a good wierd...also, sir gun designs has a great service department and it's more like a family to them.....
Loud gun....I shoot a cannon now....not a snipper gun, no element of surprise here unless you can bunker......Not many upgrades available because the gun is so simple so I'm itching to work on guns and I usually end up working on my autococker which is a lot of work and pricey....so this gun will save you money also.....
Love it!....auto cocker is now back up and I play for keeps as a front man in tourneys....Can get this gun for under 600 bucks and I got mine for 650 with a drop forward, flatline nitro tank, trigger set up, and great paint job for 650 on an auction.... Need a dependable gun that you can do all the work on and hang with angels? RT is a good option to consider...
NO marker compares, unless you go electronic, and even then this gun blows them out of the water
Automag Rt, 12inch taso pro series, 47ci nitro tank (looking for something bigger), 9v revy loader 5" drop forward
drop forward, new barrel, electronic loader, double trigger
-incredible rate of fire
-well balenced with a drop forward
-drable, and easy to clean
-barrel cleans easier because the whole "chamber" is attached to the barrel
-double trigger will bounce of your finger with the right pressure and go full auto, for a period of time
-you buy the high rise body (can be sent to airgun designs and replaced for free
(Listen to the guy below me, he knows what he's talking about)
3000psi i.9 pure energy air
16" boomstick,16" armson SSR, 12" smartparts stainless steel
Barrels always good upgrades. i love the boomstick(will get shorter one soon) so i would recomend that, also try a Z-Grip i Love them and make your playing stance pretty tight
Very easy to maintain(as att AGD stuff is)
pretty good for overall size.
nice and tasty rate of fire.
it looks awsome.
weight i guess could be a problem for some(i ain't that small so it isn't an issue for me)
if you want to add loads of shiny add-ons there isn't much to do(it's just so good straight out of the box)
some people have a chop problem but i've not found it a problem.
A fantastic gun. it's got some awsome rate of fire when needed. sooooo easy to maintain.even i can do it. its well built and will take the punishment a days play will throw at ya. annd a z-grip and you'll love it even more. mine is an early one with a high rise feed but i havent found this a problem. but it can be sorted through AGD.who incidently are really helpfull and offer great customer backup.
overall a great marker which is great fun to use and will give some of the bigger guys a run for their money.
I think the stock crown point barrel is rather loud. I would get another barrel.
Electro hopper is a must!
Intelliframe is a definate PLUS!! Or any 2X trigger is fine, as long as it's not Proteam Benchmark 'cause its way too sloppy unless you get a trigger job.
A nice air system and dropforward. Nitroduck is nice, for the value and the money.
1. High rate of fire - The RT valve is very capable of producing terrifying volume of paint as much as money you're willing to spent.
2. I have the chrome RT frame and its very pretty.
3. Very reliable and low maintence. I don't know what the others say about constant chopping and breaking down the barrel. My RT have been with me for over 4 years and I didn't encounter ball breakage 'till last summer due to the worn out sear which causes the "Run Away Mode". This is also the easist gun to clean 'cause I just rinse the whole gun with water (Aired up of course)
4. Looks Great! You bascially bought yourself some bragging rights on the field.
1. High rate of fire - Expensive to feed, but I don't mind.
2. This gun is on the heavier side 'cause it's stainless steel. But I dont mind.
3. Expensive, but I don't mind.
4. It can be a bit of a pain to chrono if you don't do it right, but I don't mind 'cause I do it right.
I love my RT of how it looks and performs. I never had any problem with the exception of wear and tear on certain moving parts. AGD serviced my RT for free and they're a great company that stand behind their product. If ball breakage is an issue, check the paint first, your paint & barrel match, then your gun.
hmm, the RT Pro (Doesnt even compare), Shocktech SFL E-Mag (the only gun I have shot that I liked better). Freak Factory Impulse.
RT with 12in boomstick. 10in total freak system with AA front and SS back. Inteleframe with blade trigger. 12vlt Revvy with intelefeed. Milled and painted mainbody with a ECLIPSE blue splash sight rail. KAPP drop zone with 88/45 Pure Energy tank. Soon to have Extreme body (my freak has cocker threads so I will have a barrel for it. Foamie bolt.
Inteleframe. Xtreme body. Foamie bolt. barrel (Freak or boom)
I recently bought this gun from a friend who has gone pro. He got his whole set up for free because he works for and is sponsored by AGD. They gave him an SFL E-Mag so he sold me this. This is one of the best guns that has been in my hands (other than his SFL E-mag) and it always shoots great. The valve is faster than I need. Has amazing accuracy (xtreme bodys have cocker threads which increase accuracy) and the speed is mind blowing. A must for anyone who is into major tournys and wants a semi (I bet my gun would make you throw your angel in the trash). Instead of the air running directly to the bolt, the line is hooked up into a breech on the side of the gun. This means it is the only mag where the bolt can be taked out and cleaned without removing your air line.
The Inteleframe takes a while to get used to, and chopping is normal for people new to mags. After you jump these hurdles you will never want to see another gun.
Like I said before, i have only shot 1 gun that I liked more. This gun beats the crap out of ANY RT PRO!!!
none.. last gun was a Kingman Spyder One which does not even compare..
AGD Automag RT
-68 3000psi Pure Energy Nitro Tank
-14" DYE Boomstick
-KAPP Drop Zone Cradle
-KA trigger job
REVY (at least 12V, X BOARD is nice too though)
This is one of the fastest guns on the market, with a trigger job, my gun easily outshoots a standard electro-qwer-marker. Quite accurate, not amazing but still very accurate. AGD also has the best customer service in paintball so there are no worrys as to whether or not you are safe purchasing from them.
definite air-hog. Automag barrels are usually a few dollars more than barrels for other companys guns. Not too many complaints.
A great tournament gun if your into the real power and not that electronic stuff. Although AGD has recently come out with an EMAG. One of the best guns on the market, tournament quality right out of the box.
shocktech cocker with delrin bolt, spyders, stock angels, jt excellerator
I have the oldskool teflon black rt pro with the bench 2x trigger and a benchmard df, 12 v rev, all american 16 in sm.parts barrel/ dye SS 10 in. I have the Air America 68 ci 4500 psi adj tank
Do not know how the stock barrel performed, but dys SS works legit as well as any AA smart parts barrel. Try a short 10 in barrel on the Rt, because it shoots ballistic out the bunker. Definitely get an adjustable tank such but I heard nonadj work fine too. I have my tank set at 800psi output so it gives a harder kick on the trigger. I suppose Pre adj tanks such as Air america Melley should work with out a problem
Little maintenace as well as little parts to tinker with, means less parts that would probably break.
Life time warranty (star system) Through allready kick ass agd company
Any dummy could operate this gun except for some one who cant handle heavy objects in their hands for long periods of play
If durty stick it in the water and fire it a few times, zero cleaning problems.
Shoots like darts and very stable in your hands. Good sounding gun not too loud but souds rather intimidating during play
Heavy for some, but because its all steel
Have to develop into the gun to be good with.
Chops marbs (I got one case and it was chopping like crazy)
Fun gun to play with, little maintenance, kick ass warranty, looks like a sick ass gun and definitely performs like one. Everyone should at least shoot this gun once to know what the reaL gun shoots and sounds like. Only reason nota 10 because It is not perfect. Look for it on Ebay
Nice adjustable HPA system. BBL upgrade. I tried all of them, from S/S dye bbls to Taso Eliminators. The best weight, accuracy, combo was the PMI Ceramic Series (really!!!).
Dye Boomsticks were not out when I purchased this marker... So I can't compare it.
Good, Solid gun. Made of Stainless Steel. Only gun that makes putting a total of over a $1000 into worth it. You can rebuild it w/simple hand tools and the RT Mag Rebuild kit ($25) in about 5 minutes. You can rebuild it from the back of your trunk with just allen wrenches and some superlube or other airgun oil.
Never let's you down. Solid performer. Fast reactive trigger if you get the hang of it. Never let your Revolution's batteries go low... you will chop balls. It relies on a steady stream of paintballs.
Accuracy can par with most high end markers out there. It's not an autococker... but better than spyders and other mid to high end guns.
I have an electronic marker and I love it. However, I am always weary about the day I drive 100+ miles to go and play and something breaks.. like say a solder joint breaks. How am I going to fix it from the trunk of my car?
With an RT, rest assured, it will always function.
Reactive trigger is faster than most guns out there, but it won't par with the fastest of reliable electros such as an intimidator, angel, bushmaster eclipse, or Defiant.
It will outgun most cockers, spyders, automags or basically any gun under $500.00. The rate of fire is probably most comparable to an automag with a centerflag grip (when you get the hang of it).
3 years ago, this gun was the SH*T. Today, don't feel you are invincible and go head on with a high end electro. Use your tactics... you can still win.
Great solid gun. Will work 10 years from now. I have put 40 cases of paint through mine in the last 3 years and it is still flawless. The sear, believe it or not, is still "sharp".
If you are a wimp and can't hold a beefy gun, do not buy it. The RT can get a little on the weighty side when "decked out".
If you are a dork and always like to short stroke triggers. This will only become a blender for paintballs. It is easier to get the hang of than a regular Automag... but can still become a blender if you are a DORK and short stroke the trigger.
3 years ago, when I first bought it I would give it a 9.5.
Today, I still give it a high 8 to 9 just because it is the only gun that is really worth it's weight in steel. Very nice craftsmanship and SOLID.
Selling it was the hardest thing to do, but I could not justify such a nice weapon for a "backup" in the gear bag. I now have a Proteam Micromag as my backup for my Intimidator.
With an RT, you don't need a backup. Nothing you can't fix between games.
This is a great gun. It is made from steel like no other gun on the market. It shoots extremely fast without any shootdown. It is accurate and consistent enough for snap shooting in the front bunker or from the back laying down cover for those in the front. Not much maintenance is necessary besides for some well deserved oil. I love the quick barrel removal system AGD uses to remove the barrel just incase of a break. It is one of the tightest guns out there, being half the size of Angels, Cockers, and Shockers, especially if you can get your hands on a Z-Grip. The reactive trigger does enable you to shoot much more paint each second.
You definitley need to practice with the trigger before using it in games. You must not short stroke the trigger or you will break paint. This means if you do not have patience to learn the RT trigger do not get this gun. At first you will not be able to shoot a lot of bps until you understand that the trigger must be pulled all the way when firing and go all the way forward before shooting again. Once you have mastered this you will be able to shoot very fast. If you are a weeny do not get this gun because of the weight due to it being made of steel.
This gun needs no upgrading besides a Warp Feed, a revolution, and possibly a Lapco stainless 12" barrel. The gun does perform perfect with no upgrades needed or available. Never tweak with any size adjusting of internals with a dremel. Just leave it alone and you will be fine. It is not a cocker so it needs no upgrading. The RT was designed and functions perfectly. All you have to do is feed it oil, air, and paint and it will chew up the competition.
