Well that sucks. People should have gotten back to him in a timely manner I suppose.

^^^yes...I am guilty of that. But I think there is just no real demand for them. I wana say I paid like ten to fifteen bucks shipped to my door, so i dont think production cost is the problem.

Ya I am out of the inserts. But y0da900 could make more if someone asked him really nicely. They can be made from delrin as well.

There is no real demand for them with all day air but for the pump player running on 12g co2 the extra shots are worth it and like I say, I did several paint tests and all showed a 20%to 30% increase.

Also these are so easy to make that someonelike Luke could make them upon request at a reasonable price.

It's sad to see this project go to the wayside. It had great potential.

This sucks. I love the way automags look and feel, but havent bought one because of the poor efficiency. This project had the potential of changing me over, but it is fizzling...

I dont think people realize how huge a 20-30% increase in efficency is. This should have taken off like a jet - as in a MUST for every mag user.

hit up y0da and have a few made. I'm sure if you got a small batch you could slang them pretty easily and make your money back.

This really isn't a simple drop in mod, as initially stated.

Most of us dont have the tools to take apart the air chamber.
I certainly don't feel like wrecking a $250 x-valve for some extra air efficiency that's don't need anyway.
I carry 4pods and a full hopper.
I Will run out of paint, before air in a game.

You are correct, I too will run out of paint before air in a rec game. The reason I had to have one, I wanted to bring my mag up to date. If your timmy or ego got 800 shoots, which I could easily shoot in one tourny match, off a 3000psi fill would you still use it? I know I wouldent.

We need to get a group of people together to go in on a batch. I offered Luke $50 plus the cost of having it installed as well as the shipping costs for both ways and he refused so...It's going to take hell getting frozen over before this mod will see the light of day again.

I'd get in on a batch. Depending on price plus price to mod a valve, I'd go for 2 easy.

I'll take one for sure. We should get the people over at Automag owners in on this. I can't believe some people said that there isn't much of a demand for these.

It's all relative.
10 parts does not really constitute a demand, even 150 parts would be a small run.

It's still people offering you or whomever builds more of these money and that's never a bad thing. We should get this going over on AO i'm sure we can get some more interest over there.

It is still a matter of perspective.
I sometimes do jobs like this more as a favor for loyal customers more than the job even being worth the time, expense and effort.
