Mags don't have timing. When you pull the trigger, you rotate the sear assembly. It pushes a pin to shut the air off to the front of the gun. Continuing to pull the trigger will release the bolt and the gun will fire and the bolt spring will return the bolt to the cocked position. Release the trigger. The sear will catch the bolt before the air is allowed back into the front of the valve.

The timing never changes because it is dependent on the rotation of the sear which is a solid piece that never changes. You can change the trigger rod, which is what one person suggested as a timing change, but it is more of a trigger position adjustment than anything. All it will do is make the trigger not able to properly activate the sear assembly.

The timing IS adjustable, but the timing is adjusted with the length of the on/off pin.

by changing the length of the on/off pin you're changing the relation beteween when the air valve recharges and the sear catches the valve.

now... DON'T SCREW WITH IT. It's set at the factory, and if you have issues, talk to an AGD tech at a tourny... or talk to me. :-)

I've never seen a mag NEED timing. they are timed conservatively, so it's never an issue.
