Low Pressure Mag

So Im just feeling out the waters. I have a solid design for a low pressure (under 200 psi) automag valve. It would use the same on/off assembly and a similar bolt setup just optimized for high flow. The volume chamber would be larger (to make up for the drop in pressure). Finally, the regulator would be of a more traditional design so that it could be more compact and help make more room for the volume chamber.

If it works, it has the potential to give the Automag the one thing it was missing, efficiency. It would also have a much lighter trigger pull, and with the ULE trigger kit, would probably have under a 10 oz pull.

Should I pursue the design? Any other suggestions? Would you buy one over an X valve?

you might want to talk to AGD before trying to make a new valve because i feel like there will be some sort of patent infringement since you have already asked if we would purchase one.i am by no means up to date on that stuff but i think if it is for personal use then its fine but if it is intended to be sold there is an issue.

also there was a guy on AO who made a pneumatic valve but im not sure what came of it.

I have just sent them an email discussing the matter. If I were to produce it, it would most likely be alongside them as I don't have the correct machinery to produce something like this.

What is the cost to you to pursue it further?
If it's not too significant (ie loans), then you should go for it or you may regret it.

Its probably going to cost quite a bit. Im going to be completely reworking and updating the design theory behind the Automag. Hopefully I can get in touch with AGD and work something out there, otherwise I was thinking about using Kickstarter (If I do ill post a link in this thread). Im anticipating around $5,000 to get to a working prototype possibly more if ADG isn't receptive and I have to go through legal channels and obtain the nessiscary patents and rights on my own. I want to try to avoid using loans because if anything goes south and my plans fail I'll owe a good chunk of money and no one wants that do they?
