We call them ULE for "Ultra Light Engineering" because these babies are light as a feather! 3.9 oz total weight with feed cup and detent makes you faster to the 50!Available in vert feed or warp left/warp right

The Karta from Deadlywind is a fully sculptured, 4-axis CNC milled aluminum body/rail kit for the Automag. We start with authentic, AGD factory spec'd aluminum "Slug" body and AGD body rails. Starting with these components ensures that all our bodies will work 100% with AGD equipment... no tolerance or QC issues with these beauties!
The Karta accepts:

WDP Angel compatable ball detents.
Any AGD trigger frame
Any AGD valve except the RT-Classic and Sydarm
The Karta body kit includes the Karta aluminum mainbody, Karta sculptured Emag or RTPro rail, and dual AGD (WDP Angel style) ball detents.
For $20.00 extra, the rail can be ULE ("Ultra Light Engineering") milled to shed another 2.4oz, bringing the Karta's rail weight from 5.5oz down to 3.1oz! The Karta body alone weighs 4.1oz.

Logic Paintball Alpha Rail

"They weigh just 2.1 ounces, a 72% reduction over stock!

The Alpha is compatable with all current and past Automag bodies,
including: ULE, Karta, Dallara, and all the old stainless steel twistlock
bodies (classic, minimag, RTP, and EMag).

They use Classic Sears and Axles."

3. Grip Frames

The lightest grip frames you will find for

Mech: RPG ULF
RPG Chimera Frame
CFL Milled Z-Grip

Electro: You can have E-Mag frames ULE'd, removing all non-essential metal, making your E-Mag slightly lighter. E-mag Battery packs can also be milled to reduce weight.

Don't forget the Alpha rail by Logic. It's the lightest mag rail available.

You should add Lukes CFL Zgrip mod to the list as well, it is slightly heavier then the ULF and Chimera frames, but still brings the zgrip within 3 ounces of either frame.
