new to mags and saying hi

I've only been playing for a little over a year now and have been just using Spyders and a Diablo Mongoose I got for pretty cheap. One night, while at work, a coworker said he had some guns he wanted to sell and said one of them was an Automag and my ears perked up. I knew the name but had never actually seen one in person. Money changed hands and it was mine.

I know you guys love pics so here's what I got in the deal(excuse the dirty bag and couch).

68 classic, hurricane valve, 12 gram adapter, gas thru stock(remote line came with it too), and 3 barrels that i know nothing about. Any info you guys could give me on any of the barrels would be great.

Thanks for the great site full of great info.

The longer barrel is a smart parts All-American (AA). The shorter one looks like (maybe) a TASO windforce, not sure on that though. Nice grips on there as well.

Upper barrel looks like a BOA Concealer.

Congrats on your first!

Let's see:

1. Your Diamond Labs hurricane reg in black anodized aluminum is an interesting piece, and probably won't hurt your performance over a stock reg. Not a high-dollar item, but still an historical curiosity, and might fool some people into thinking at loose glance that you have an RT-type valve. Then, if you want even more fun, give them a stroke by calmly gassing it up with CO2.

2. Powerfeed left hopper body that, while hard to tell from the pic, looks to be either painted or with factory black teflon from AGD. In any case you will want to be sure to get the newer parabolic powerfeed plug, if it doesn't already have one.

3. Smart Parts wood grips (desirable) in the green/orange camo-ish pattern (even more desirable).

4. The bottom does look like an AA barrel, and top indeed may be a BOA concealer. I too suspect the center barrel is either a Taso Winforce or its clone, the 32 degrees Nyte Stikk.

Cool! Welcome to the club, and start making up some more spare beds, as your mag will get lonely, send out its beacon, and soon you will have more of them running around your house.

thanks for the extra info. the feed plug is the old one with the flat spot on it so there's something else on my ever growing list of goodies to buy.

welcome to mags. old though it may be, you'll find it so much nicer than your spyders & mongoose. i owned dozens of electros over the years but i'd just as soon use my mag as i would any one of them.

I don't have anything new to add, except that that is a NICE collection.

Can anyone identify the stock? They're pretty common but I've never seen them named by brand or manufacturer.
