Need some Minimag info-

Since I dont know jack crap when it comes to mags, can someone enlighten me on this-



I know its a minimag w/intelliframe-
but...

-what valve does it come with, new?
-can it be ran on CO2?
-whats so nice about the trigger frame?
-its a mech, so what kind of ROF will it have?
-does it need a reg?

anything else the mag experts know would be helpful!
thanks for the help!

All the valves are basically the same. If it has the original valve it should say Minimag on it. Anything that says ANS on it is usually undesirable. You can run it on CO2, just be sure to get an anti-siphon tank, run an expansion chamber, keep the CO2 tank underfilled, run the tank vertically, or whatever other anti-liquid CO2 methods there are. The trigger frame is just really well made and has a nice crisp trigger pull. ROF I imagine would be around 7 BPS for the average person, but it'll take some time to do that without short stroking the trigger. It does not need a regulator, the back 1/2 of the valve is the regulator.

If you bought a new Minimag and a new intelliframe it would cost around $350. A more common used price would be $150 or so.

I'd say around $150 if all the parts are new.

Just an FYI, that is an original version Intelliframe, not the second generation with the indention on the trigger guard to allow for items to be screwed into the vert ASA. This may pose an issue later if you opt for an expansion chamber or foregrip.

They aren't especially efficient party due to how they require full tank pressure of around 700+ psi to work at their best. 12 gram efficiency will be pretty crummy, no matter how slowly you shoot or how warm it is outside.

Talk to rainman229 if you want to increase 12g shot capacity. I think you have to devolumize the valve and stuff???
