new to mags and completly lost
I think I’m fairly competent and have found I can fix/work on most basic guns. (spyders, tippmanns, ion, cocker)

I’m new to mags but they seem fairly simple. I picked up a classic mag locally on craigslist and the guy showed me it fired, but it did seem to leak about everywhere possible. The body was beat and overall I knew it would need some work. It was dirt cheap and since it did fire I figured a rebuild kit would get it running and I could start a new project.

Picked up a parts kit, lv 10 kit, body, rail, and got to work. I rebuilt it, replaced all o-rings, lubed it, and followed the lv guide to start to tune it for lv 10 and when I put air in it……NOTHING!

I pull the trigger and nothing happens. I broke it down made sure I put everything back together correctly and tried again with the same result.

If I hold down the trigger (which has pressure) it will make a small “puff of air” sound. Im not sure where to go from here.


Got the new piston and put everything together with the lv7. got it going great @ 280ish fps. Put in the 1.5 carrier and the lv 10 bolt and it worked great. I used the lv7 spring and it was too rough so i went with the mid size spring.

Thanks to everyone here for their help! The community really stepped up and helped out.

screw your velocity nut in. the lvl 10 requires more pressure i believe.

I have a manual pm me address ill mail it off free if you'd like I have no use for it

ok so i took out the shims put air in it and it started leaking and still dead trigger. Took off air, turned up velocity, put air in it and it shot air out the back like an automatic. Not constant but "puff..puff..puff" and high pressure air, until i cut the air......

*should also note i bought the lv10 used and only have the 0-1.5 carriers

Put the 1.5 carrier in... Does it leak? If not its possible you need a larger carrier and the one in there is small enough to cause the lvl10 to activate. What's your tank output pressure?

Your rod on the sear might not be reaching trigger, try adjust forward. I had same thing, gave the rod couple of turns, shot fine

Did you carbon wrap your body? Is it between the rail & the body?

thaylog 04-21-2013 09:28 PM

Tried that, whats the risk of it sticking out too far?

thaylog 04-21-2013 09:29 PM

No the carbon wrap does not interfere with the rail. It stops just before rail

What type of on/off do you have also reg output pressure
