Picked up one of these about a year ago. I know it's a mechanical gun, but there's something so satisfying about it. It shoots like a gem, is compact as hell and just comfortable in the hands.

It's not too bad with air effeciency, but it does tend to chop with the stock bolt in it. I'd def recommend getting the lvl 10 bolt.

The 'Mag community is a tremendous help, and has created amazing mods and after market parts, making the purchase of a 'mag well worth it.

Pros: Simple, sleek design
Smooth shooting
Easy maintanence, (few drops of oil in the ASA)

Cons: Unique barrel threading makes it hard to find good matches
Chops quite a bit with the stock bolt

I've owned multiples of pretty much ever kind on mag over the years, the minimag is no exception. It's a mag, can take a beating and won't let you down...here's the skinny...

Looks - New Minimags come in a blasted grey PF body with a carbon fiber gripframe. it isn't the most attractive amrker in the world stock. There are a ton of things you can do to make it purdy though. Splash kits, gripframes and polished bodies are all great on these. I wish they still had the option for polished bodies on new ones through AGD, if they did I'd have given this an extra star under appearance.

Performance - It's a mag. If you're unfamiliar with mags it is rediculiously reliable and durable. The classic valve will get you average efficiency, nothing to write home about, and is very consistant. It has a descent recharge rate and you can achieve low-mid teens as far as ROF goes with a little trigger practice and an upgraded gripframe. It is a well balanced amrker as well and feels very solid, it is hard to find a better quality marker than AGD.

Maintenance - Rediculiously easy markers to maintain. One thumbscrew and you can remove the entire valve/bolt assembly to clean/lube. There isn't much that can go wrong with these, an oring is really the only thing you ever see go bad in these.

Value - Mags in general have a pretty sturdy resale value and even if you buy one brand new, it will outlive you. I'd call that a worthwhile investment.

It should also be mentioned that there are a slew of aftermarket upgrades for any type of mag so you can customize your marker to fit your play style.

Had this gun for a few years and loved it. Bought it brand new and did a bunch of upgrades to it. It chopped sometimes due to no eye and didn't put lvl 10 bolt in it before I sold it, but it NEVER let me down. Super reliable and durable and unique sound signature when shooting. Only other bad thing was proprietary design features such as how the barrel locks into place, making aftermarket barrels expensive and hard to find, and the bolt system and not being able to put an eye but rather needing to upgrade to lvl10 bolt. Sold it to my good friend and he also never had problems with it. He sold it eventually as well to another person, but I don't know who...I bet that person is still shooting it with no problems lol.

Airgun Designs USA Minimag I love the single tube design of AGD products. I used a minimag for recball and woodsball for years. Always reliable and never gave me any fits. Now the gun is heavy even with a ULE body.

Great marker really enjoyed it.

Bought one brand new back in 2001, played PanAm/local with it and loved it.

Out of the box it was great. The barrel threads were unique, it felt wonderful, you could upgrade it a ridiculous amount. Performancewise it was really consistent and easy to maintain.

Weight reduction is a must, as well as an intelliframe and ULT body (cocker threads!).

If you find one, I highly recommend it!

So I bought this as a backup marker a couple months back from tunamart.com I paid $270 shipped and it came three days within ordering it. Taking this thing out of the box, you'll find some 'auto-lube' (basically a 1 oz. bottle of golden cup oil with AGD's name on it), warranty card and manual. It comes with an 8" twist-lock barrel, which is handy if you play in close-quarters situations. Accuracy is top-notch (as is the case with ANY Automag). Running Co2 on this marker is only possible with a remote or expansion chamber, otherwise the marker will leak, I prefer using HPA. The ROF is slow when you're breaking the marker in first, but after a couple cases, it shoots just as fast as a mech autococker trilogy. Overall, it's a good marker that can hold it's own. The level 7 bolt has the potential to chop paintballs, but that can be fixed with the level 10 bolt upgrade. I'm still building mine for one shot thrills. I'd highly recommend this for anyone who wants reliability without compromise. Mag's need only be oiled before and after play and they'll keep kicking for years to come.
