A little Mag guidance please

So over some time I have accumulated several mag parts through various deals. I thought that maybe I had enough to venture in to putting one together. Mind you I know very little about mags, very little. I ran into some problems. Here are some pictures of all the stuff I have.

OK as you can see I have a mini mag valve with what I am guessing is a LVL 7 bolt, correct me if I am wrong about that.
What the problem is the body and the rail don't seem to fit together, why?
What is the cheaper rout to go, new body, new rail?
I am not even sure what all the other parts are...well other than the tippmann detent. Any other advice is welcome as I venture into learning about mags.

the rail and body will fit together they are just offset. you seem to be missing a sear and sear pin and a field strip screw and maybe a screw for the body and thats about it

That body and rail don't look right together. I am thinking you have an RT body but don't know for sure.

That is an RT or old Emag body. It will work with that rail though. You look like you are missing a twistlock assembly, thumb screw, front frame screw and a sear. That small silver piece right of the silver and red springs looks like a sear pin unless my eyes are mistaken. That long, thin spring looks like a Spyder main spring and the orange detent goes to a Tippmann. Bottom right looks like level 10carriers and you have a level 7 bolt so those are useless for your build.

You should be able to use that body on that rail, as long as it sits flush in the rail. I'm assuming it's sliding front/back? Once you put the marker together as a whole, the front frame screw (which looks like you do not have) will keep it from moving.
From pics it looks like you are missing:
-Front frame screw
-Sear
-Sear pin
-Twistlock Assembly (which goes into the rail and holds barrel in place)
-Field Strip Screw (which holds valve in place on rail/frame)
-Barrel

You can get these from AGD's website or Tunaman. You're probably looking at about $45 worth of parts on the higher side unless you can get them used. That's considering that the valve needs no work or parts replaced. It looks like you have a handful of Level 10 parts in the box as well.

Basically what Shiek said, looks like he caught me in midpost, lol.

there is a twist lock assembly in the box, second row second square from the right. I think I might have the sear somewhere, I seem to remember buying one.
The body does not sit flush on the rail. I kinda like the body but not looking to build a RT already have one. So what I am hearing is I need to be in the market for a different body. What would I call this wtb, MIniMag body, automag body?

Classic mag or Minimag bodies. I actually have one for sale but it isn't polished, it's dull grey. And I don't have a barrel for it. Minimag bodies have the ported front shroud and look nicer. There are quite a few floating around on AO.

Yes, either a minimag or automag body, including ULE bodies. The mounting nub for the RT pro body ("pim" iirc) is a little fat to fit that rail. The rail can be milled or drilled to fit that pim, but return postage goes a long way toward an old classic body.

If you really like that body you could probably modify the pim by filing it to fit the rail, as long as you can get the front frame screw hole to line up. If not yeah, automag powerfeed body, or minimag body, you just might want to specify hopper left or right. The body you have is hopper left. The minimag bodies are longer and have sort of a "ventilated" front to them similar to a Tech 9. Either will work with that rail.

Looks like you have all the spare parts from a LVL10 bolt kit in the box as well, that is what the long silver spring and red spring are for, just be sure not to use those with your lvl7 bolt.
