Jury on Level 10?

So I have owned a Powerfeed Automag for about 10 years now. I am running entirely stock except the barrel and a Dye 2x trigger with HPA all along. I have been bouncing around the idea of getting a Level 10 kit for several years now. My marker does tend to chop a couple times a day, and sometimes gets a little squirrelly under rapid fire.

Do people love their Level 10's or should I just keep my Level 7?

What are the real deal, no BS advantages of spending the $75?

I love my level 10 bolt. I have NEVER chopped a ball with it. They can be a little touchy to tune, but once you have it dialed in, you just forget it and shoot away.

Well worth the money.

AGD has never been known for producing a product that doesn't perform as advertised. Hyping things up was never Tom's style.

The Level 10 bolts work great, I have them in both my RT Pro's and have one in the tool box for when I convert the Pump Mag to semi. Well tuned, they will be one of the best investments you could ever make for your Mag!

I love the Lvl10 in my ghetto-minimag . . . the foamy shot off the bolt years ago and I haven't bothered to replace it because it is simply not needed . . . it doesn't bust paint . . . no matter how fast I shoot, no matter if my loader is fubard, no matter how crappy the paint is that I am shooting.

the original tuning has held up perfectly over the years - and I even swapped them from a ReTro valve to an X-valve, and didnt have to change a thing.

It is worth the money. You will never have to worry about chopping ever again.

If the foamie comes off, soak the end of the bolt with acetone or fingernail polish remover to completely remove the old glue and oil/grease/residue. Then superglue that sucker on, and the new foamie won't be going anywhere.

It just requires a little patience and a substantial air supply up front to tweak it, but afterwards, as long as you oil it regularly and often, it is a great upgrade.

$75 bucks? You need to search a little harder. I just bought one for spare parts off amazon/"actionvillage" and beat that substantially.

It can be a total pain in the *** to tune at first when you know little about it. It uses a bit more air than the lvl 7 bolt.

After you get over that, its the single best upgrade available for a Mag IMO. No batteries, no chops.

Does it work as advertised - yes

Is it a good upgrade - yes if you use gravity loaders, if you get a force loader then there really is no need.

Is it worth the money - for peace of mind not worrying about chopping paint yes.

Can you get it cheaper - yes lots of people seem to sell used lvl10's for like $50 all the time.

Personaly I love mine in my punemag, but i don't have one in my pump mag and I won't put one in it either. Basicly it does everthing eyes and a $100 force loader does for e-guns, it stops the chop. So its up to you to decide if you want it.

BTW its fun to stick your finger in the breach and pull the trigger once it tuned, you can really freak your friends out if they don't know you've installed the lvl10.

Good stuff. Every one of my mags has one. I won't leave home without it.

Had one, and it worked as advertised. It would hang up in different barrels, and the foamy shot off... I got rid of the mag shortly afterwards.

But it does stop chopping.
