OK want to get a mag but to many choices!

I have been looking for a mag to replace my old RT from years ago.

I have been offered 2 guns, one of which will have a new home with me (unless ya'll have something better)

First off: http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=1982366

This is an E-mag that looks goos and i talked him down to $650 shipped.

And second:

Black and Red RT Mag w/X-valve:
Red ULE body
RTP rail
logic 90* grip frame. (not UMF, so no safety)
Evil Scion Tank 5k/68 (adjustable ,in hydro)
Dye Ultralight barrel you choose tip
LX & ULT spare parts included along with blank warranty card
X-boarded revi also included.
red and black checkered Carbon fiber grip panels
$450 no barrel w/tank
$490 UL Barrel w/tank

$500 shipped

Pics:



I would get it without the barrel so at $450 for a gun and 5K tank which do you think is a better deal?

I do have a tank a tank but you can always use an extra and it is an OK tank.

Oh and this is just in:

1 of 25 made, "Tequila Sunrise" fade. It has a prototype LX system (came direct from Tom)


STOCK




with ULE mainbody



It would include the LX system (and associated o-rings, spacers etc) and that most-awesom drop. It fits flatlines, and was custom annodized to match the gun.

It also has the manuals, video and all the other swag that cam with the gun. The gun is in excellent condition.

This is also about $500

So which is the better buy?? Need help fast! 2 of them are about to "expire"!

Definitely the Tequila Sunrise Emag... With the ULE body. That looks like a ULE trigger frame too, so that would be a little lighter.

Are you looking in the markers section over on autmags.org too? Wishyou had caught me last week, I had a bone stock emag. I let it go for less than $400.

IMO, prices too high on all those.

Although the tequilla emag has a good price for what it is. However, if your just looking for performance you can save money.

Stock Emags should run around $400 - $450

Although if I were you, I would go AKA for the price, quality, and performance factor. If you really want to stay AGD that's a good choice too. You can find nice Vikings for abut $350 nowadays $700+ for milled ones.

Yeah, i have been out of the mag game for awhile so i don't know the prices now.

I have been looking at automags.org that is where i found all of these.

So where would you find better prices? I have looked everywhere i know. and ebay doesn't have what i want right now.

Go with the first Emag. The tequila one is hot looking, but it's got the prototype lvl X, the Superbolt I. It is a collectors item only as it will chew through its delrin sleeve. And when that sleeve is gone, you can't get another.

The first one is ok price. The problem is that it's not all ULE. The rail, frame, and battery pack are not ULE. I'd see if he will do $600.

What is the LX? i have heard about it but never knew what it really was.

And does anyone see anything wrong with the middle one? I think i might just go mech since this will be a backup anyways.

LX is short for level 10 kit. Check out some of the videos here. They are worth their weight in gold.

espically the "tounge" video

All of automag tech books are availible free on their website just fyi

I don't remember the superbolt being called the prototype lvl X ???

And yes, I do have one, and no it hasn't broken the delrin sleeve. I dry fired about 2500-3000 times to see if it would. When it didn't, so I kept it instead of sending in for a refund... I guess it is a collector's item now.

Those vids are too cool. After talking to a friend of mine i think i am going to got with some kind of RT Pro. What is a good price for these? is the one above and good? and how light is a ULT? "walkable"?

And other than ULE and ULT and X-valve what else would i need on it?

I must say, if you get teh tequila sunrise emag i can't promis i won't be at your door standing over you with bloody hands holding that mag. That is one nice looking mag, if you get the tank and body i'd say go for it, sell one of the bodies, then buy the level 10 from like actionvillage or something.

good on you, man. I think you made the right choice (gotta have that xvalve) and paid a fair price...
now you just have to tune it to your liking. that trigger is infinately tweakable...as is the LX.

I was actually going to buy that, but found another deal on ebay.

Heh, I have both an Excal and an 06 borg to trade with him too, not that I'm willing to part with either, I probably would've just paid cash like you.

Good choice

Because I love it!

It's so good I'll only trade it for a newer borg, and I probably don't have to add much either because it's a factory 1 of 10.

For $570 you can probably buy yourself a pre 06 borg. There's not much performance difference, and the ones after being milled by Destructive Custom look better than an 06 IMO. http://www.destructivecustoms.com/ga...ndex.php?id=52

i never thought "mag" and "too many choices" would ever be in the same sentence.

Well they do have a lot of very different upgrades, like "should I stick with a regular frame of have a y-frame and be laughed at for looking weird but feel very comfortable" or "should I get eyes and use level 7 or just stick with lvl10?"

Or should i go overkill and use both? I personally would choose that one, but then again, i'd rathr be safe.
