Do you really want a custom Mag if you are impatient?

Custom Mags can take quite a while to get done, depending on what you want...

What he said. If you are planning on having someone else build your mag, be prepared to wait. Maybe a couple of weeks, maybe a couple of months. You just never know when you leave it up to someone else. I suggest you try the b/s/t forum on AO and pick yourself up a complete marker. There are some great deals there but you have to look around.

You can post and pm as soon as you are registered.

The impatient part comes into play when im looking at deals on AO and i cant even offer.

I looked through the threads in this forum and came across a few who had theirs put together by some highly reguarded people on AO, so thats where im coming from.

I would build my own mag if i wasnt new to them, I just a nice one fully tuned so i can play with it and learn as i go.

My main question was HOW LONG does it take to be able to post and such.

Man those are some NICE mags you've made and i love those karta bodies. I guess i should see what parts I can come across, I guess i better start searching for a cheaper x-valve and a nice body to start and frame

A mag is not a cocker or other sketchy gun. They are made and machined to the best standards in the industry. All mag rails, valves bodies and most frames are interchangeable with zero tuning. It doesn't matter if Tom Kaye or Porky the Pig assembles it... it will shoot like a mag.

You could have someone help with tuning a LX antichop bolt or ULT kit... but even that is a breeze.

That's why I got one, the mags I own are too reliable. So I got a cocker. I took the thing apart down to all separate parts. Then put it back together and played with the timing. It's been trivial to maintain. I was all looking forward to a challenge.

Who can suggest a less reliable gun that a cocker? I need something to tinker with.

I agree wholeheartedly... cockers are actually simple to tune, if you take the few minutes to understand how they work. Just because they put the pneumatics on the outside of the body and you have 3 small hoses that scares the crap out of people. In all honesty, the autococker is one of the EASIEST markers to tune and understand the operation...

I once explained over the phone to a new cocker owner exactly how it works and what each thing did, and what each thing did to tune it, and what my procedure was to get a really short snappy trigger, then let him try. He called back 45minutes later and had it ripping by himself... Just take the 2 minutes to learn how it works, and you'll never have to ask for help again.

Now for mags, they are my other love. I guess I'm conflicted because I love both mags & cockers, but they are also pretty easy as long as you learn their operation, and usually require little if any tinkering / tuning.

Why not get the email address's of the people you need to contact and mail them your needs. Rogue Factor and the others will respond much quicker if you contact them directly vs a thread in a public forum.

on a side note, it's probably going to take a little bit longer to get in since AO is updating their website's with new servers so, be patient.
