Mags!

For some reason I'm not allowed to post on AO.org yet so thought I'd try here. Recently dipped my toe into AirgunDesigns after being a cocker guy all my life. That being said I picked up a few pieces that interested me and I'm planning on running these stock till I decide if I want to go the ULE route and such. That being said if I could get some feedback on what would make the best setup with what I have now and what I can sell would be great. Looking to probably keep the mini mag and the automag with rail. Any help would be greatly appreciate. Also each Mag has a different bolt setup, 1 stock 1 venturi bolt style and 1 of the newer setups as well? (possibly level 10?)
Minimag has an original metal frame and also came with a really cool benchmark trigger frame as well.

Automag with stock bolt I presume

Automag with Rail has ANS Xpansion chamber/asa/barrel/Valve as well

Nice pieces you got there, definitely old school.

If I was to assemble the best possible mag out of the parts and pieces you got there....I would probably take the last mag (with the ANS expansion chamber and rail).
-replace the expansion chamber with the CP foregrip from the minimag
- replace the steel braided hose with macroline.
-I would also take the stock bolt/valve and use that as well.
-The polymer trigger frame is comfortable and, in my opinion, is the best of the bunch, so I would keep it where its at.

I honestly think that will give you the best looking and most comfortable classic mag to play with. The rest of the parts are either useless (like the expansion chamber, unless running CO2) or are not the lightest/most modern/reliable parts of the bunch.

Agreed.
The phase 2 air valve didn't really add anything appreciable
.
That foamy bolt tip is going to go flying after a few shots.
Of course that all assumes that all works?
Do you know if any of those work to any degree?

Hope it works out! The mag parts kits will usually fix 90% of any problems you might have. Only other thing you might want to do while your going through it is to clean and grease the spring pack in the reg. God only knows what kind of accumulation might be in there.

After you do the maintenance and reapply air, just turn the velocity up while pulling the trigger until it starts to fire...thatll usually get you in a functional ballpark until you can find a chrono.

With just a little TLC, your automag should be shooting like butta. Look forward to hearing how it goes!
