Yes, but seldom. I suspect that is part of the fun, but also part of some of the misinformation out there. People act as though the classic style valves were the victims of roving gangs of star thieves, so that having any number of stars "still intact!" is a special selling point. It isn't, only because it seems that people didn't want a divot cut into their shiny valve and either fixed it themselves, or asked a friend, or (likely) the markers just didn't need service. They are hardy indeed.

But I have seen a tiny few with anywhere from one to all ground off.

It does look a bit unsightly, but perhaps the fact that it is truly a rare thing, and that it went back to the maker, might make for a possible selling point to a person into that sort of thing.

Maybe.

Spider, do tell on the Micros. That's most interesting, indeed. So I suppose Hill160881 wasn't so outlandish after all, eh?

Kewl. You gotta love all this history.

That's why I was curious I love those little bits of information. Makes it special. None of these will be worth mega-bucks. But it's nice to know you have something with value.

Thanks again spider for the link and the info again guys. I'll update the list in a bit. Only have time for a quick post I gotta bail....

Hill was working with HPA which isn't all that sensitive, it's a direct give and take between usable volume and ball pressure. There's a sweetspot, but you'll trade for it. CO2 gets two benefits from higher chamber pressures. The first is that you don't loose as much heat across the mag reg because it is not letting the CO2 down as far. The second is that you get to use that expansion in the barrel where it can make snowflakes and still trade out with warm air. Efficiency goes up and reg freezing goes down. The problem is that you start getting to the point where you can't get good velocity out of the mag reg with HPA once you shrink the dump chamber down to a certain point (not enough volume). As dual gas markers, the classic mags were designed with the best all-around dump chamber size. It's very much like tophat mods in old matrix markers. You can get more efficiency if you don't mind a harder action on the bolt (and seals).

I think Smiley (non-famous) had a thread with some actual micro mag dump chamber dimensions here on MCB....

speaking of history, Barrel Control Bore

I'm probably thinking about the hypermags, not the micro mags. Using 12 grams on a Automag...

I think you may wish to replace the second Micromag with "Classic".

Dang Spider, I didn't even realize you posted that link to Zak's site right before I did. That's what I get for skimming the thread for updates instead of reading the replies carefully, lol
