No offense to ONX, but do NOT get the box mod.
I ask you, what is the box supposed to do? Prevent shootdown and decrease recharge time, right?
It does it by bypassing the regulator and dumping high-pressure gas into the firing chamber. In reality, it gives you velocity spikes (especially with CO2) and does absolutely nothing to help your recharge time (which is still faster than you can pull the trigger). As an added side bonus, it prevents you from disassembling the regulator for routine maintenance.
The problem most people have with 'mags (in my opinion, of course) is that they mistakenly think that they can be improved upon. They try to tweak little things here and there and all they really succeed in doing is messing the marker up. Fiddling with the sear push rod length, filing down the on/off pin, trying to drill out the on/off spacer, getting an 8-hole mod and of course the infamous SP magic box. All of these things do absolutely nothing. The "classic" mag, in its most recent level 7 iteration, is the product of years and years of development. If any knucklehead with a pair of vice grips and a file could improve it in any way, don't you think they would come like that from the factory?
The best thing you can do for your 'mag is to take it out of the box, keep it lubricated and shoot it as-is. Don't go screwing around with it and it'll treat you well.
EDIT: If you can get a Blazer for $200, then there's no question, of course.
