after adding more oil through like 10 more rules, you may need an O ring o two.

Stainless body automags use twist lock barrels, they are cool and cheap.

you can buy automag parts from airgun.com
The Automag was designed to work and seal with no oil. You only need 2-3 drops run through the gun before each day of play...maybe twice a day if you shoot a few cases. Too much oil will cause the bolt and spring to gum up. You want NO oil on the outside of the bolt and spring.

So i went in to my local pb shop so they could see if my automag had any problems and what not. Well the thing aired up and shot like it just came off the line! But i got a complete parts kit for it and now i somt know if i need to even use it? And besides where is a video that shows how to put on all of these new parts anyway?

I'd say if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Keep the parts for when you need them. As a new Mag owner, it would be a good idea to become familiar with exactly how they work. This video is pretty much required viewing for Mag owners.

I took the old gal out for paintball this weekend. I cronoed her the first time and she was shooting 360 at first. She was shooting a tad high. But she shot good otherwise. The problems i had was when i would slowly let of the trigger i could hear air leaking. And the barrel would click into place and stay put, it kept turning.

The twistlock pin may need adjusted. There's an allen screw you can turn to tighten it. As for the leak, watch the video I posted. It should help you find the source of the leak. I suspect it may be in the on/off. Once you locate the source, you can swap out the bad seal with one from your parts kit.

The "leak" on a slow trigger release, *might* be the dump chamber refilling. To test this, simply start releasing the trigger and when it starts to make the "leak" noise, do not move the trigger any further. Wait and listen to see if the hiss goes away.

You're not supposed to slowly release the trigger, it's not an Autococker! Stroking the trigger causes all sorts of issues. The idea is to release the trigger as fast as possible.

Late to the party, but if you plan on running a powerfeed body, be sure to have a parabolic feed plug.
