Micromag chopping...

Hello,

I recently picked up a micromag and played yesterday for the first time with it. I had a horrible time with ball breaks all day. Fresh Paint, Marbellizer if that matters.

Micromag was running a level 7 bolt, micromag "classic" valve, benchmark frame.

I became frustrated with it and played with my right feed classic mag....level 7 as well, CF frame....ZERO problems.

I then had an idea and swapped out the valve/bolt from the classic and put it in the micro hoping for better results.

But it did not help much.

any ideas???

(ball detent looked fine)

Thanks!

Chuffing noises? What's the input pressure from your tank? Breaking in the breech or in the barrel? Long nose or short nose bolt?

I had access to air all day so I never fell under 1.5 k on a 68/45...

no chuffing noises....

short nose bolt (though the classic was running an ans venturi)

I primarily had barrel breaks, one in breach before i swapped it.

Barrel was pretty good shape no obvious nicks, burrs etc...couldnt tell you the ID however...

I don't know how this would affect it but...i have a feeling previous owner messed with the trigger rod a bit... not a credit card space between the rod and the back of the trigger(on the benchmark frame) As a matter of fact it was close enough that it would bypass the safety if i really put some tension on it while on safe...but i guess i don't know how that would effect barrel breaks...but i suppose every bit of info helps eh...

Definitely adjust your trigger rod...

That said, Automags like a minimum of 800psi output pressure from the tank regulator. Common factory settings for tanks are in the 400s for "Low", 600s for "Standard" and 800s for "High". If your tank is putting out 600psi you could very well be starving the valve.

Any issues with velocity? Change to the sound signature as you shoot?

Couldnt tell you output at the moment. Crossfire hp reg. Ill mess with the trigger rod later today. Velocity was fairly consistent as well as sound signature.

Is the micromag a power feed?

It could have an old style feed plug causing problems.

I had a cocker barrel that didn't screw all the way in on one of my micros that caused it to barrel break all the dang time. I guess the lip was enough to tear up paint on the way across.

Lvl 7 Foamy or Foamless bolt? If you have the Foamy Bolt and it does not have the foamy it will break balls.
