Thinking about building my first mag

First, if this is in the wrong location mods please move or tell me where to put it and I will gladly move it.

I have never owned a mag, nor shot one oddly. I want to build one over the winter since there is no hockey. I have been reading about mags for the last few days and all I have learned is that I really want one lol.

What I want
  • Average weight
  • Woods/recball
  • Single trigger
  • Reliable
  • 200-250 dollar budget
  • Barrel takes freak insert

Let me know if there is more information you need from me.

Any help would be awesome

You're in the right spot. This one had wandered off...

Personally, I like the single AGD frames more than any other brand. Not pretty, but they fit my hand.

Your budget will require some choices. Your body choice affects your barrels.

HPA or CO2?

Are you mowing or one balling?

ilivlife 11-13-2012 11:48 AM

HPA and one balling but not pump (already built a pump coker last winter)

You could start with a BST or ebay classic automag or minimag. You should be able to learn to tune a level 10 bolt over the winter (if not a day).

Strong preference for or against left, right, power, vert feeds?

What kind of loader do you have for it?

I prefer vert feed, but I could use anything that isn't warp feed. I have a halo b for it but I would pick up a cheap revvie for it if I need to

Right? First they steal the maple syrup reserve, then comes the bacon shortage, now hockey? Someone is really working on the Canadians.

Oh, a ULE body would be an easy route; cocker threads, aluminum and all. With the halo, you could get away with a level 7 bolt, but the level 10 is still nice to have.

Twistlock freak backs are getting a little rare, but they still pop up on occasion. You can get a stainless body converted to an offset vert feed, which is a nice combination of no-elbows and over-the-top sighting.

Any Canadian would likely say Gary Bettman:


However, Bettman's tenure in the NHL has been controversial. He has often been criticized for attempting to "Americanize" the game, and expanding the league into non-traditional hockey markets such as the American South at the expense of the more traditional markets in Canada and the Northern United States.[1][4] Bettman was also a central figure of three labor stoppages, including the 2004–05 NHL lockout that saw the entire season canceled.[5] These controversies have made him unpopular with many fans around the league.[6]

The OHL arenas are packed in my area.
