The Minimag features outstanding looks in a
compact design for the player who demands the
balance of a vertical bottle and the convenience
of a quick disconnect hose.
The Minimag includes the same high-performance
valve system as the 68Automag with a shorter 8"
barrel for fast maneuverability in tight spots.
The Airgun Designs Minimag is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I used to have a cocker with tons of upgrades
heavily upgraded spyders
boomstick for sure
a boomstick (it's amazing)
it makes my mag just as accurate as my cocker but as u no cockers r very complicated and mags r not
the level to makes paint breakage minimal(some team used all e-mags with level 10's and ran through 140 cases and never broke a ball)
comming from using a cocker to switch to the mag is shocking
I can't believe thats it gets the same if not better accuracy with the boomstick but with much greater simplicity
if you have any problem its usually just a seal which can be replaced cheaply and quickly
the level 10 makes the mag
other anti chop devices use electricty which I've seen bunk up on low battery, the connections just get loose, water, humidity, s*** happens cause they rely on electricty to power them
the level 10 relies on the laws of physics (which cannot be changed) so that with any resistance it wont fire
try jamming your finger or nething and firing with the level 10, it just shoots the gas up the powerfeed
the mag barrel is awesome
instead of dropping into the breech and firing through the barrel (like every other gun) it drops into the barrel
you'll never have to miss abnother game cuase ur guns acting up
it works perfectly and flawlessly all the time
Mini-mag right powerfeed
Ricochet AK hopper
10" Dye stainless barrel
Psycho balistics drop forward
91/3500 3A HPA Tank (gas hog?? I've never run out)
Mags and CO2 just do not work together - before spending $$ on things to try to make CO2 work just get your money together and buy NITRO
Tom Kaye - number one strength of AGD
Strength - ruggedness
Weight - if it matters my setup gets heavy, I don't mind
The reason I purchased an automag - Tom Kaye, his writings, his answers, his attitude have influenced this sport, and this company for the better more times than I can count, his honesty about the technical aspects of guns and his competitors is inspirational.
Ok, first things first - all comparable markers (cockers, mags, angels, etc.) will shoot comparably with similar barrels, consistent pressure, and good paint. Accuracy is influenced by consistence - consistent paint to barrel match and consistent pressure (btw, all paintballs zig-zag in flight so accuracy only gets so good). If your worried about speed the minimag may not be great for you - shooting about 11bps with the valve (or so, I don't know the exact #) is all its good for - I personally have no desire to burn through more paint than that so the mags (non-RT) are perfect for me - I'm not coordinated enough to pull the trigger any faster than what my mag is capable of.
The key point of this though, ruggedness. I have nose dived into bunkers before, buried my mag in the dirt, tree, bunker - cleaned out the dirt, and been shooting again as good as before. That is why I bought a mag - they are tanks. The mag will serve you well - and AGD will update things as they come along. I love my mag, I love AGD.
Buy a mag - reasons on this one: mags will be around for a long time - if a major innovation is introduced (I don't think an important one has been in some time - I don't think electronic markers have an advantage over mechanical, and I can only shoot so fast) AGD will make the upgrade for your gun - it will cost you money, but thats part of it.
If you don't like the Mag, buy a cocker - great gun as well, I don't like them as well but they are comparable.
The electros are overpriced and what advantage do you get?
i have used a 99 autococker, and a tippmann 98, both fully upgraded, they dont compare at all!
minimag, centerflag electric lcd hyper frame, 16 in j&j barrel, gas through fore grip, sight rail, hurricane valve, velocity tourney lock.
new barrel, reg!
i think that this gun is a killer, it is the best and most accurate gun i have ever played with, it totally destroyes all of the other guns like the cocker or tippmann products, my brothers getting an angel so i will see how they compare, but for 1000 bucks cheaper im sure mines better, i would defenitly get a new barrel not stock for sure, and 9 volt revy!
nothing besides the barrel!!!!!!!!
in conclusion i would really go with the mags, they work for me! i give my gun how its set up a 10.0 rating it sweet!
Spyder Tl +-not near as good
JT 5.0-not near as good
w/ 6inch chrome drop forward with on/off
9 volt reve
also chrome four grip regulator
a drop to balance the weight
probly a better barrell
P.S. u dont need to buy a reg ( it comes wit 1)
Where to start?
-unless your weak its the perfect weight bout 2-3 pounds.
-nice and compact ........... why else would it be called MINI mag?
-pretty accurate with stock
-once i bought my upgrades it felt perfect
-got it for 270
-comes with a reg so now i got double reg goin on
-low maintenace except a little lube in the air inlet once a month
- looks cooler than automag and better grips
-only one break so far and it was 2 month old paint
nuttin except the trigger a litter heavy but im gettin used to it
this gun is one of the best guns in the 100-400 price range and its true when they call it angel killer Dont get a cocker this is cheaper than most of em and is much less in maintenace and same in performace plus the stock trigger is better than autococker
(believe me my friend let me use his wgp stock for a month and all i said is true)
10 out of 10

all kinds of guns ranging from spyder to impulse. mag is one of the best guns i have ever used.
AGD Minimag w/ 12" Dye Stainless Steel, KAPP drop forward, System X gas thru grip, Chrome site rail. 48/3000 crossfire nitro, 12V revy.
New barrel, stock barrel is very short. I reccomend a 12" Dye or Smart Parts, no bigger than 14". Some type of fore grip and a drop forward.
Small - very compact percect for hiding behind bunkers.
accurate - with a new barrel its one of the most accurate guns there are.
simple - easy to take apart, clean, or fix.
quality - when you hold the gun in your hands and shoot it you just know that you have a high quality gun. very sturdy, doesn't feel like it will fall apart very easily.
Not much. you really should use nitrogen but it is definatly worth the extra money to get a nitro tank. stock trigger frame doesn't have the best trigger pull, but its not that bad. you do kind of need upgrades to make the gun perform its best, but once you do put some upgrades into it, it is one of the best guns out there.
Overall, this is a great gun for anyone from a tourny player to a everday rec ball player. if you are thinking about getting one definatly get it. worth the money to have a high quality gun that will always work. I would give the stock gun a 9/10, but with some upgrades it is definatly nothing less than a 10/10.
2X benchy with stickies
stab if you run clean co2 and an AA
this gun rocks. I love it to death. with the 2X benchy you can lay down the paint. it is perfect for me. i like to play very aggressive and i need a gun that can match. This gun is very reliable and very accurate. using nitro the fps wont very more than 4. with my current setup i can hit anything im aiming at. also the gun is very compact and small. it is easily cleaned too.
the stock grip is horrible. the actual grip itself is hard to hold if you like to hold you marker up close. the single trigger will slow you down a ton.
this is a great gun for any kind of player. i would defintly get a 2X trigger. depending on how fast your trigger fingers are you can lay out alot of paint.
Excellent overall design, extremely simple to take apart, clean and maintain, reliable, sturdy, the list goes on and on. This gun is probably one of the most straightforward designs on the market. It shoots very fast, and has range. It has a great feel to it overall. It is very upgradeable.
You NEED to upgrade the barrel, this is a MUST. It also would not hurt to get the valve modified to more than one hole to eliminate shoot down. This can be done by an airsmith or you can by an upgraded one for anywheres from $25 to $50. It would probably be best to run nitrogen on this gun, CO2 will work, but nitro is far far superior.
With the few upgrades needed, this gun will outperform 90%% of what one might encounter on a typical day of paintball. It will keep up in a tournament as well, but the sophistication of paintball markers in recent years have created better guns, but these go for double the price or more. It is definately worth buying and I would recommend it to anyone who is serious about paintball.
A mini mag is a great gun for the speed and simplicity that
it delivers. A very compact package that is GREAT for
speedball. Also a very nice gun for regular capture the
flags or forest fields if you get a better barrel for
range. Highly customizible, it will fit all auto mag parts.
I suggest running nitrogen in it otherwise it will not
perform as well as it should. ALSO, a bottome line helps a
Well, it doesnt come with a barrel and that probly is a
GOOD thing, but its worth mentioning. Also, mags can
sometimes be temopermental, but nothing to big if you
inspecte your regulator and make sure everything is screwed
A great gun for the more serious paintall player, and its
really great to customize and get it working at its best. I
would recomend a player looking for someting better than
tiptans and spyders. My mag could take on any cocker!
its small, its light, and it shoots really fast. a minimag
is the same as a regular .68 automag but it is smaller and
it looks better, the vents on the front of the gun look
especially cool, anything that goes on a regular automag
will go on a mini, anything you want for this gun, you can
i didnt find anything bad about the gun, if you shoot
REALLY fast youll experience a slight drop in velocity but
thats with no upgrades this can be fixed with a reactor
valve (at least thats what fixed it in mine. some people
might say its ugly but they are on crack.
i would recomend this gun to anyone, it is a really great
tourney or recreational gun and it is reliable and
efficient. i sold mine just for a change of pace and i
this is a good gun but it has its downs, i know mine always hacks up the barrel o rings. Over all its a great gun but i strongly recomend a level 10, a better barrel and a a revvy. I also hate the threading , i wish agd would just have a regular screw in threading, but ill live.
get this gun but when you do, get lots of upgrades and youll be ok
