Must state that's only a Mag with a lvl 10 bolt. Initial setup is difficult and they won't operate at less than 270fps due to pressure issues. So if you're at some indoor fields you're out of luck.
Mags are also gas hogs and not really spoolers. They are integrated regged blow forwards. But yeah, Tom Kaye is an extremely smart engineer. AGD did many good things. Like bring compressed air to paintball.
Even at that. There is a level of 'chopping' that can happen with any gun. And really it has to do with the paint more than the gun itself. Much of the paint used now is produced overseas, and sits for a few months before you open that "fresh" case.
Propelling a ball from 0-300 fps stresses the shell. If the shell is too weak, because of manufacturing, shipping, sit time, humidity, heat, cold, or any number of factors, that ball's going to break.
The only "chops" I've had in my legend were fixed by dwell adjustments. Lessening the punch of air on the ball. Any breaks I've had since then have actually been in the barrel, not the breech. I use a good paint to barrel match to get good efficiency. But the ballooning of the ball after the initial burst of air can open up the seams as it's travelling down the barrel due to a tight fit.
I guess that's why over-boring is becoming more popular with every type of gun. It has less to do with the gun than the paint quality.
