The Mag collection

Imon1maybe6's cocker collection has inspired me to keep the cocker vs. mag feud alive Here's my collection of Mags. I have no problem with you using my pictures, but please give credit where it is due.

I am always interested in buying your Mag parts and/or guns, especially if you see a piece/pattern I'm missing. PM me if you have something you think I may be interested in.


There is a great write-up by Frizzle Fry on AO that describes the different generations of Micromags: http://www.automags.org/forums/showt...ures-amp-Specs

The Micromags


First generation Micromag with fixed barrel in excellent condition - the one that started it all. This would not have come with a Micromag valve, but I added one to it. GFX003293


Second generation Red Nights RT with red wo0d grips. GFX10065


Second generation Cool Camo with rare back-bottle ASA and custom wood grips by pbalien. CF57369


Second generation Lightning Micromag, 1 of 6 mags with this finish. GFX003644


The flashiest second generation Ultra Nickel Micromag in town - only use this when you don't mind getting a ton of questions and attention. GFX001053


This second generation gun was a special order and the only Micromag to ever come with an Autoresponse trigger frame (2 shots per trigger pull). Only one of two with this ano, both ordered by the same individual. GFX001584


This another unusual 2nd gen Micromag with what seems to be a one-off black/red/silver splash pattern (maybe a Planet Eclipse Micromag?). GFX000611


Custom ano second generation with Armson Intruder. GFX002846


This an unusual 3rd gen Micromag with what seems to be a one-off black/red acid wash. The gun then had the angled lines milled out to expose the valve. GFX000165


Fourth generation Blue Nights with a matching tank. GFX003376


Wife's fourth generation Purple Nights, very comfy co2 friendly tank-under stock setup. GFX003070


Fourth generation Alien. GFX003330


Fourth generation Blue Tiger RT. GFX10324


Fourth generation Teal Tiger with tank under stock setup and RF adapter.GFX003237


Fourth Gen jungle sunset RT. This one has a heck of a story, I bought this and it was lost in the mail, I posted about it being lost on AO. Member vintage contacted me that he bought the gun on Ebay (ID'd by the serial) and sold it to me at cost. Very generous move, and I owe him, thank you! GFX10338



Fourth Gen jungle nights RT. This one is probably the nicest Micro I own. The ano is truly stunning and I love the matching sight. I also have the original bill of sale and owner's manual. GFX10414


Fourth generation Teal Tiger Micromag RT with matching Armson site. This is a new addition and a real gem, it's pretty much the exact gun used in the magazine ads that I used to drool over many years ago. GFX10511

I thought you'd like those! I plan on digging out some of my old magazine and Eclipse ads to scan and post. It'll show what patterns I still need to buy

I've owned 30+ markers in my time but I've never touched a mag. All I can remember is everybody talking about how they were all blenders. Why is that? Sorry if this isn't the correct place for discussion.

Discussion is fine. Mags were known as blenders for the same reason that cockers were known as finicky. The right gun in the wrong hands won't work well. Learn how the gun works and it will treat you well.
Reasons for breaking paint: worn out or damaged detents (this is #1 for a reason), outshooting gravity hoppers (generally speaking, that's easier to do with a mag than a cocker), poor paint, aftermarket bolts.
