Exclamation What can I do for my old 68 Automag classic?!

Hey, I inherited an old 68 Automag from my father who NEVER took care of it. It is in need of a new spring that goes inside the bolt assembly and I would like to mod it a bit if I can.

Any suggestions?

Hey, thanks that pretty much answers all of my questions except one. Where can I find a factory replacement spring for that bolt??

While it's not difficult to do that, you will have more into your mag than what a shocker would cost you. I love mags but with what you would have into a nice ep-mag or emag you could buy two shockers that were selling cheap. IMHO, a ULE body so you could use any cocker threaded barrel you wanted and then a LVL10 would make that a fun mech mag.

I like that you got it from your dad. Hope you hold onto it, enjoy it, and maybe pass it on.

Well I definitely love it because it can reach out and touch someone. And yeah, I do like that he gave it to me; I just wish he had cleaned it at least once!

And I'll post Pics when I am on my computer. Right now I am on my phone.

If you haven't already id go through and check the o rings and seats one by one as well... just take apart one area of the gun at a time so you don't get a mix up of parts and pieces. Take em and clean them individually and I usually grab a tiny Tupperware (we have some that are maybe 3-4 oz size) to put drops of oil in, as you clean them drop them in the oil and get them completely covered and put it back together. also do a "nail" test on the o rings and reg seat, press your fingernail into them pretty hard, if you leave an indent they are most likely too dried up to seal or are too far gone to save with lots of oil. That's where the parts kit comes in...

Also, I usually drop 5-6 drops of oil in my parts kit where my o rings are to keep them moist... I don't know if it actually does anything... but it makes me feel better, that's what its all about right? Haha.

Good luck though, clean er' up and post some pics!

An RT valve with a crazy high input pressure is faster than an E mag.

Is the worn spring you're talking about inside the power tube? If so, you'll want to replace it with a power tube spacer kit as well since they don't come with the parts kits.

*until of course you can throw a level 10 bolt in there
