Nice. I just got a mag myself and love it. I like those stock grips. Old school style. Mine came with some crappy plastic hollow grips. I wish mine had that kind.

Hey, what is the difference between the minimag and a 68 Automag? I've got an Automag and  it looks pretty much the same size besides the, uhhh..., ?holes? in the main body. I don't see how it's shorter or anything.

You asked what the difference was between a Classic valve and an X-Valve? For one, with an adjustable HPA tank hooked up to the X-valve, you can reach 27 bps. I like shooting fast and that is the reason I don't want one. It would just give me a reason to shoot blazing fast and run out of paint! I'm forcing myself to conserve paint lol. The X-Valve bounces the trigger much like a Tippmann Response trigger only much faster and is Tourny legal for some reason. The X-Valve's reg recharges in .04 seconds so you'll never get shoot down. The X-Valve has a level ten pre-installed. The X-Valve is aluminum I think and weighs a lot less. And it only accepts nitrogen or HPA-whatever you can get in an HPA bottle. I think that's all the features of the X-Valve. But my Classic is suiting me fine.

Somebody asked where you can find these guns? Check eBay. Tons of them.

I'll post my mag up tomorrow to show all. Sig pic is an old pic. Plenty has changed since then. Cheers.

EDIT: Forgot to say this. I HATE powerfeeds. Elbows are the biggest pains in the butt. You're lucky you have that vertical feed even if it is tall. With my elbow on and the powerfeed cut down, my hopper sits about the same height above the body as yours.

Local Proshop.  They had it there for a LONG time nobody around here is intrested in mags so the price slowly droped. 

MiniMag bodies are NO LONGER made so there getting harder to find new but AGD still has a few if you order it straight from there site.  The best thing about mags is there SO Backwards compatible i can get an x valve and level ten slap on any grips z,y,Intelli, 90* you name it.  Vert feeds main bodies are swapable there SO MODUAL yet easy to maintain and use. 

Definatly dont give up looking as once you do get one you will NOT be dissapointed.

Cool mag, where did you find it? I've been looking and I can't find anywhere to buy a new minimag these days.

Good luck,

Well theres a first it may be tad tll but a mag being long????

The tank is on the large side and it needs a drop but the gun pluse tank is still shorter than the Carbine without a tank.

Mags especially Minimags are KNOWn for being the SMALLEST turny guns available.

It one of the selling points i bought the thing its TINY great for getting in close to the bunker when playing front and very handy for snapshooting.

Total gun legth in pic tank and all no drop is 25inches only 5" longer than a a5 or 98c without Tank.

Emags and X-mags are a Whole differant level than a MiniMag but the best thing about mags IS THERE SO MODUAL.  Everything is backwards forwards compatible.  I love this gun and cant wait to start hopping it up.

Thanx again all for the compliment and suggestions.

I personaly don't like mini mags that much i'd rather have an E or X-mag. But it's your gun not mine.

Remember the days when people had the same sort of awe for the Mags that they seem to have for the Karnis, Timmies, Shockers, etc of today?

Nice to see more mags, especially the old school ones! Suggestion, instead of getting a level ten, if you are using HPA, save up, and get an x valve, AGD has a trade in policy for classic/mini valves!

For the love of mags, that feedneck is closing in on an impulse.

But besides that, looks nice.

Personally, I like Y-grips more than intelli's.

Thanx guys i like it seems to work well cant wait to get it out agian.  I am still undecided on the front grip as i kinda like not haveing one as i find it comfortable holding right in front of the trigger frame.

I also for some reason like the MiniMag bodys and love the twist to lock barrels now that i figured it out (Was the cause to my ONLY 2 chops of the day on the crono).

I dont think upgrades are gona be anytime soon though as i really did not plan on purchaseing a marker and probly wont bable to afford the $$ for a while.  Between Rent, Insurance, Truck Payments, Fuel, Food, Bills money is on the tight side so ill be lucky enough just to feed it with paint and air as is.  I probly should not have spent the $$ on the marker but i HAVE ALWAYS wanted a mag and could not turn it down so heck SHURE IS FUN though lol.

Thax again for all the comlements and suggestions and give me more upgradeing advice as i am a COMPLETE MAG NEWB and addmittedly dont know too mutch about them.

Nice. Pick up a ULE body though, smaller feedneck, looks really cool, and take 'cocker threads. Intelliframes are nice, but not necessary. Pick up a ULT (Ultralight Trigger) kit for it, and you can rip like crazy. Front grip is basically a must (although, being a carbine shooter, you may enjoy it without one...whatever).

Overall great gun, I'd love to get my hands on one of those cheap.
