complete noob to the agd scene. Have some questions

Thanks in advance!!

I grabbed this automag tonight. I have no clue how these work nor what this one is. It looks to be a run of the mill mag but I have no clue. Do all mags have the huge brass fittings? The barrel looks nice and all but again no idea on a bore size. I did drop some air in her and shot but wouldn't actually shoot a paintball. I had no clue prior to this that the barrel was the breech and the detent was built into the barrel. Pretty sweet imo. Anyhow guys please just enlighten me as to what this is and what I should do to make sure she is running like she is supposed to. On a side note, the giant braided line on the top is hideous.

Google 68 Automag, there's 25 years worth of info out there on how they work.
You can replace the braided line with macro.

I'd trade you a black mag barrel for the splash one if you'd like.

That's a classic 68, standard stainless steel right feed body, rail and carbon frame. You can switch out all the fittings to any other that you like and the lines too. You actually don't need the expansion chamber specially if you are running it on air, the line can go from the duck bill to the valve direct.

Brass weighs less than stainless steel. But you can switch it all out for some macro lines, just makes sure they're suited for high pressure 800psi. If you plan on building your mag up someday you'll be wanting those braided hoses! As for your top hose, maybe something a little shorter and put a elbow on the end so to make a tighter package. FYI, braided hoses, brass and stainless fittings cost more than Macroline! That's Macro not Micro, there is a difference.

two things you should do, look up a diagram of the valve and check it out to make sure everything is in order and change to macro lines if you want it to be a bit cleaner.

manual

exploded diagram of the valve

troubleshooting video:


all you need is the parts kit to rebuild the valve, and you'll be in good shape...assuming the bolt and sear aren't worn out or damaged. and you can get a nice, tight look with stainless hose:
