Section 3: Electromags
There are many ways to convert a Mag into an electro.
2.Logic UMF (Ultimate Mag Frame)
7.m-Q Valved Mag
What this is, is basically taking the frame and battery pack from an E-mag and putting it on your existing mag.
What you will need:
1. E-mag battery pack (the front thing that looks like a big foregrip)
2. E-mag gripframe
3. New on/off pin
4. X-Valve or an E-mag Valve (classic valves can only keep up to 15bps, before having shootdown)
If you want it to go even faster and have even more modes Predator has come out with an E-mag board.
The thread is kind of long, but you can get the jist of it starting where the link sends you.
Also, two videos of BigEvil-AO messing around with Xmod'd Xmags.
(on Jayloo, so you might have to log-in)
Go to Lornecash's new websight. All of the Xmod info is there, incuding downloads for the Xmod software, manual, and even AGD software.
Arstron has also modded a Dragun T-Board to fit his E-Mag.
E-Mag lowers will cost around $250 - $400 if you buy everything used.

2. Logic UMF Frame
A bolt on Electro Pneumatic frame for the AGD Automag.
It uses air to actuate the existing sear, instead of a giant pancake
solenoid. The result is increased reliability, greatly increased battery
life, and a system that requires less overall tuning (the LPR is set from
us, and you never need to touch it). The system eliminates the need to
tune the ULT (as you must use a stock EMag On/Off), and if you have us install
the eyes, you can switch back to a LVL 7 bolt, eliminating the need to
tune the LVL X, and adding back some air efficiency to boot.
We can do the eye installs, or we will have a list of 'smiths who are able
and willing to do the work we can't fit into our schedule. Of course you
perfectly welcome to do the eye installs yourself. The components will be
included with the kit.
Predator Board AFA 5.0 (or newer)
Eye Components included (You build the harness and do the eye install)
Roller Bearing Trigger
Adjustable switch contact and post travel, fixed forward stop
Magnetic trigger return
Huge trigger guard
Integrated Dovetail Rail
Includes VA that is already tapped for the LPR
Does not use the ULT
(you must use the stock Emag on/off included with the kit)
Uses one 9V battery
Works with RTP, EMag, and Karta Rail, as well as any RTP type rail
(like most of what Rogue sells).
Works with ULE body, Karta Body, and any body cut from a slug.
(our new eye covers will only work with the ULE bodies. All others
get Eblade covers or goop at the customers discretion.)
Will not work with twist lock bodies.
It can be made to work with classic rails, but custom work will be
involved (IE its no longer just a bolt on thing).
Dry Firing (sound graphed at 18 bps)
Shooting Paint (sound graphed at 20 bps)
(picture, movies, and description from www.logicpaintball.com
These frames are $450
These can be purchased from www.devilsden.tv
Duel Break Beam eyes
Unlimited bps with eyes on
MROF 45 BPS with eyes off
Xvalve with ULE trigger kit installed
ULE body milled with eyes installed. Predator board with different modes of fire and all settings done by trigger
Ripper Trigger mod
(picture and specs from www.devilsden.tv
This will cost you $900 for the whole gun.
Odds are after he finishes all his current orders Devil Mags will be discontinued.
The Hyperframe replaces the trigger rod linking the trigger and sear with a microswitch to sense trigger pulls, control electronics, and an electromagnetic solenoid to move the sear. When electricity is run through it, a magnetic field is generated, which draws a piece of iron closer to it. The Hyperframe's solenoid is situated so that when it is actuated, it moves the Automag's sear, releasing the bolt, and closing the on/off valve. Hyperframes come in two styles, 13bps and 20pbs. I know very little about boyaa frames. They are both discontinued, and used will cost from $150-$200.
The Hypermag FAQ on AO:
Video 3 and 4 are hyperframed Mags.
(top Mag has a hyperframe, it is owned by Jaan of PBN)
(Hypermag belonging to Sk8ermog of AO)
These are a way to mod either the sears of the Mag and Spyder to work torether, or reversing the Solenoid in the Spyder frame.
Sear Mod by tonybhall of PBN:
Reverse Noid by Arstron:
(Video of Astron's Dragun-Mag)
luke-AO made his own that used a nice happy medium of sear/noid modding.
"I didn’t care for the approach for the 2 different conversions (flipped ‘noid or the sear mod) that are currently being done. So I came up with a completely different idea for the conversion. No offence to anyone that has done them before me, because the guys I’ve seen doing the conversions are using drills and dremmel’s, that in itself deserves respect.
Like I said, my approach was considerably different. What I did was a sear mod, flipped ‘noid with a custom sear tripper to trip the Mag sear at the on/off.
In a nut shell the frame mounts via the ESP rear frame hole and a new one is drilled up front. The Mag sear trigger rod arm is completely removed at the base of the sear. The ESP solenoid is flipped around in the frame. Then a custom sear tripper is fitted in the back side of the frame that allows the Mag sear to be tripped directly under the on/off pin.
At this time, the mod looks suitable for Mags running an ULE on/off (trigger) and a RT Pro style rail. The “sear tripper” is adjustable which will help with the conversion using different rails with the exception of the original AM/MM rails; they are too narrow for the ESP frame."
Luke is now offering a spydermag conversion for a decent amount of money through his website http://www.lukescustoms.com/page0024.htm

These won't cost much to make if you have the right tools, and will shoot as fast a the Spyder frame you put on it. These can be T-Boarded and drilled from eyes. (www.scenariodreams.com
The iMag uses an ION board and noid to trip a Mag's sear. It was first done by Nicad and Scott Hudnall.
