I have an auto mag and I won on eBay.
 
I have an auto mag and I won on eBay. On the right side of the pistol grip it has a red button. I am wondering what this is for........ it doesn't seem to do anything when I push on it.
This automag is a great marker but I already seem to have and internal leak. I am afraid to take it apart.......... probably because of what I paid for it. I have read that it's easy to maintain and simple in construction.

And I am fairly experienced working on Airsoft, paintball, and air guns. Should I be nervous.

Try a dose of lube in the ASA where you screw in the tank. Then cycle the gun a bit. That seems to do the trick to many a mag.

Thank you ..................I will try this.
 
Thank you ..................I will try this. I have played one full day with this gun using high-pressure oxygen without a problem. Only today when I pluged in a CO2 tank did I start to experience problems.

This is my new baby so I am still apprehensive about taking it apart. I think the expression is " if it's not broke don't fix it. "

A picture would really help see what the 'red thing' is. Also, I never use CO2 with my Mag anymore. HPA works great, CO2 always gives me problems with balls breaking in the barrel. Good luck.

I think his safety is jammed in fire mode. I don't recall any grips having anything red sticking out of them lol.

Hey Bond, I just got an older Classic a short time back. They SAY that the early ones like my Classic are sort of OK on CO2 but I've noticed that most folks with the older ones still use a proper multi stage expansion chamber to ensure that it's only gas reaching the valve. If yours is a little newer or perhaps just because it's so cold at this time of year you may be having troubles with a bit of liquid getting into the valve.

I really don't care that much for the fatness of HPA bottles so I"m looking at converting mine to an antisyphoned CO2 tank as well as using an expansion chamber as my foregrip. If you're going to want to use CO2 you may want to consider that as well.

is the red button the safety?

If you are afraid of taking it appart don't be.
Watch parts 1-9 of the instructional video here: http://video.google.ca/videosearch?q=tom+kaye+automag
and you should be ok.
If everything is working fine until it started leaking though, try the oil trick first.

The red dot on the grip is the button you were asking about?
Huh - the only thing I can think of is another safety - I'd have to look at my mag but it might be in the right place to block the back of the rod that connects the sear & the trigger.
Why not just pull the grips off & check? there's nothing you can mess up doing that, the grip frame is empty.
