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.
Faster hopper-I needed the warp to feed what this thing will do
Upgrade frame-I don't have one but I am going to get a Y grip
Barrel-I have an armson but I want something that can shoot through breaks
Level Ten-No chops
I just got the minimag used back on thursday. Since then I have been in love. I used it for 6 straight hours on saturday, you know, just to say hi.
I love this thing so much. The LX is just awesome. I shot about 2500 rounds and I chopped one that broke in the hopper. That is pretty good for me. I really like the look of the marker. Very stylish. Especially with the warp feed which is why I have the PF right body. The stock grip is compfortable but made for hands smaller than mine. The ULT I just found out was in there today so I tried it with a spare stock On/Off I had and I noticed a small difference so thats another plus. Another great thing is the simple maintnence. Wash it off and shoot a little oil through. Yeahaw
and the twistlock barrel is awesome
Kinda slow-If you hide behind a wall of paint
Inneficiend-If you have an uber low pressure monster
Ugly-If you're blind
Loud-without a barrel on it
Big-compared to a pistol
Lots of Recoil-Compared to a matrix
Heavy-If you are under 7 years old
A great. Actually my dream gun. Now I just need a few more upgrades and it will be the ultimag.
AGD Minimag with Lapco universal drop forward, Lapco 12" bigshot, and Palmers Stabalizer.
Anti-siphoned, regulated CO2 or HPA
Almost no kick
Dosn't like liquid CO2
I got one off E-bay for $140 shipped. The thing looked like it had never been cleaned before, ever. So after a quick scrub down and lube I took it out to the porch for some test shooting. Almost no kick, and pretty consistant over the chrono (+/- 5 FPS). The trigger pull is a little heavier than my mech Tippmann. But I don't think it will be that noticable during play. After getting my Lapco barrel on there it proved to be quite comprable accuracy wise with PMI premiums as all my other guns.
The main reason I bought this gun is for the ballance. I find that it is a much nicer feel to have your hopper almost directly above your grip frame. It also means that your barrel protrudes less from the front of the gun. I think it will make for tighter play.
It is also a little quieter than a blowback. Though not by much.
The grips feel quite diffrent than anything I have shot before. They are quite small, but still seem to fit my hands.
I will have a little more to say once I play with it a few times.
A step up as far as ergonomics from a Tippman or Spyder
Icon T PDS, Reloader B, 72/3k, rest is classified ; )
Lvl 10 bolt
10 or 12" barrel.
Fast for a mech.
Taking barrel off.
One of the refs at my field is selling one of these with a 12" SP Progressive on it and a lvl 10 bolt. The only complaint i can make about it is the twist lock barrel thread system can be stubborn to get off as the marker ages.
The trigger pull is stiff, but snappy all the same. Very small and compact, even so that you can fire it in one hand. The internal reg is outstanding which takes off the need to add a 2nd external reg, thus saving weight.
This gun is perfect for a frontman who wants a high end mechanical marker, or a paintball sharpshooter who doesnt want a large marker to give him away, or prehaps a scenarioballer like me who would rather carry around a 5lb fully gassed and loaded marker than a 10lb fully decked tippmann or armotech.
Outstanding, classic marker. Its an automag, and i'm an automaggot, so obviously i love this gun. Perfect for frontmen.
Odyssey Torid X
14" Dye Ultralite Barrel
Halo B w/ Z code
16oz Stubby co2
Stock Intimidator delrin bolt
level 10 Bolt
Easy to clean
If you chop it gets really unacurate
When I got this gun It was so awesome. It is very acurate, there is like no kick. I loved this gun and it was one of my first guns. It is so compact and airgun designs is a good help and they provide so much upgrades. I use to chop a lot with this gun ( I had a level 7 bolt), but then when I bouht a revvy there was hardly no chops.
Does not do very well if the temp is like freazing and your using co2, if you have nitro you wont have a problem.
This gun is awesome, has repair stars on valve, good for the money.

This is an awsome gun, ive used it from speedball - scenario games, it can take just about anything you can dishout at it, and its made by AGD one of the best companys out there. It is also very newb friendly, some newbs will look at a cocker and never want one, this gun is so easy to use its funny! i love this gun and will never sell it (exept maybe for another mag)
The only other gun i have used was a piranha PRO TS G3(great starting gun!)!
Mini Mag w/ EVO2,14" 2002AA, Recharging Valve, Black ANS sight rail, CP flame drop w/ CP on/off,AGD Intelliframe, and a level 10 bolt set-up!
Barrel, Bolt, Intelliframe!
Fast with new trigger, duriable, looks great, lots of compliments, no chopping!
Kinda a gas hog but no biggie!
Well i got this gun off of a friend and it had already come with the Intelliframe and when i first saw it i was like wow this gun looks really cool! Well i shot it and wow i couldnt belive it i was going pretty fast with that air powered trigger and i loved every second of it! So i have been slowly buying these upgrades for it and it keeps getting better and better! this gun will take me all summer and winter and then i am getting my DM4!!!!!
Well i thing this is a great next gun if you are taking a step up for a blow-back!
I highly recomend this gun to anyone and dont worry when i get my DM4 This gun will still be seeing the feild!
spyders and replicas- not even close to the mag perfomence
Cockers- better distance but more maintence
Impulse- way better rof but not as durable
AGD minimag 4 star with intelliframe, lvl 10 bolt, AA freakfront 10 inch, shocktech drop and on/off, richochect 2k, and a Crossfire 68ci 3000psi tank.
First off definitly nitro- dont even try C02, get nitro right away
lvl 10 would be next- never have chopped a ball with mine
barrel- stock is ok, but not great
intelliframe- increases rof by a lot....stock trigger feels heavy and is only one fingered
drop- gun isback heavy and a drop makes it balanced
Aye there are many.....
not many but there are some
maybe heavy....not really
I love my mag but i know there are some problems with it....
First thing i noticed when i got my mag was consistincy. The reg inside shoot between +-4fps everytime.
Next was accuracy- with the stock barrel you can hit a target 50 ft away easily and if u upgrade it can be better
After that was how simple the gun is.....if you dont like to fool around with your gun or just dont even wanna bother, get a mag. The only thing you ever need to do is put a few drops of oil into where it says to. Easy as that.
After that is how compact the gun is. In airball you will be able to notice how great this gun is. Your gun never gets in the way and is very small!
After playing with the gun stock for a few months, i looked into upgrades and there were many!
This gun is also very durable. You dont have to worry about it breakign down because it never will... The 4 stars on the gun make it even better.
Now for the criticism...
My gun is a major gas hog! my 68 3k tank maybe gets 600-700 shots off, when my friends impulse and cocker can get 800-900. Make sure you are near a fill station when you are playing...
The minimag also has very bad distance....In woodsball games i have to arch to get someone that any othergun could get easily.....a long barrel with fix this just a little bit. I have two fronts for mine a 10 inch and 14 inch. one for airball one for woodsball.
This gun is EXPENSIVE to put together! After one year i have put over 800 into my gun when i only planned on maybe 600. If you plan on getting the mag, you have to get the whole package.
This marker can be considered to be heavy compared to other high end markers, but when compared to blow back it is about the same. It really is not that heavy.
My mag is great for tourneys and small woodsball games. I wouldnt get a mag if all you do is rec ball b/c mags suck up gas and the distance is not great. I do rec ball sometimes and the mag is great in it, but make sure your an up front player when you get this gun.....I love my mag and would never trade it for an electro or cocker. The minimag is a great gun! simple
angel ir3 last blude to ice fade to be produced in US, with evolution y board, stainless steel freak kit
a good barrel and a double trigger, and a good reg
its very compact
hard trigger pull
Ive just retired my minimag after a little less than 4 years of service. It has seen me through the good times, and the bad times. My minimag was given to me as a gift from a good friend of mine. He had just gotten an sto autococker and had no need for it. I was just getting into paintball and this was a great deal. It was set up from the begining with a no name reg and a drop. My CO2 tank worked fine with it, and so did my nitrogen tank. The good thing about this gun is its reletively easy gun to clean. the body and the bolt come of with out problems and it has a idiot proof design. The drawback to the gun is its trigger is really heavy. you need a good amount of force to shoot it so its really bad for speedball. i didnt have a clue either how to lighten the trigger. If anyone knows how to i would love to know.
This is a really good gun and i loved the time we had together, lol. I would gladly use again but i have an IR3 now, but it still sits proudly on my shelf as a backup gun.
tippmann 98 custom - equal in durability but not even close in accuracy and rate of fire
2002 vision impulse - faster rate of fire but much harder to clean, not near as durable
minimag w/ 4 star valve, 32 degrees black gas thru forgrip, polished chrome body rt powerfeed, chrome intelliframe w/ blade trigger & black dye sticky grips, chrome CP flame drop forward, chrome/black smarparts on/off asa adapter, 14in freak kit w/ stainless back & black freak front, lvl10 bolt, 12v smoke revy wired up to trigger frame for intellifeed, 68/4500 nitroduck N2 tank, all steel braided hoses
first and foremost, the level 10 bolt, best upgrade you can get for an ADG marker, no more chopped paintballs period. next a new trigger frame, the frame that comes with the minimag is like relizing your girlfriends fat and you need to get rid of it as soon as possible. the intelliframe is the pamela anderson of tigger frames, you can also intellifeed it to your hopper (every time you pull the trigger the hopper agitates). then at least a 12 in barrel, the stock barrel is pretty accurate but any smartparts barrel will up the accuracy a ton. then an N2 tank, yes the mag will run on co2 but it will freeze up fairly quickly, N2 solves that problem. make sure to get a 12v revy or better too.
durability, consistency, compact, quiet, easy to use and clean
very heavy compared to other guns, thats bout it
the durability is off the hizou, you cant break a mag, all the parts of manufactured from stainless steel. these things are the tiger tanks of paintball markers. rate of fire is good, and with the ULE trigger pull kit you can obtain trigger sensitivity of an electronic marker. extremely compact, very consistent, deadly accurate, and quiet. everyone says they are gas hogs but if you know how to tweek the lvl 10 bolt, gas is no prob bob.
freakin awesome gun, with the level 10 bolt you get a feature that most players pay hundreds of dollars for on other guns. best gun ive ever bought, if there is every nething wrong with it, which i havent had a problem in 2 years, then its most likely an o-ring. this gun can easily compete with the shockers, cockers, impulses, and timmy's. get this gun!
minimag, lvl 10, intelliframe, smart parts ss, revy, and other stuff
double trigger (not benchmark), really depends on how much money you want to spend
small, can be used with co2, reliable, accurate, and a lot more
heavy, heavy trigger pull
The gun is really accurate and quiet. But the trigger pull is very heavy, and this is the only big problem on the gun. This can be fixed with a double trigger. Besides that it is all good. The main reason that I got the gun was because you can use them with co2. Don't listen to people that say you have to have commpressed air.
A unique gun that you don't see that much of anymore. Get the gun it you use co2; it's more accurate that a stock impulse that can aslo be used with co2. If you have commpressed air, save you money and get the RT Pro. I'm rating the gun as if it were stock.
