Looking for AGA62 help/conversion
I am looking to get a quote of what it would cost and who could do it.
What I am looking for exactly is to have my AGA62 slightly modded to use .50cal paint by having a drop in barrel insert and a few spring feed tubes made, as well as if needed an insert for the elevator.
Currently the gun is not working leaks like a sive when trying to air it up, and the latch is loose, a shop local might be able to fix her up but IDK yet gonna call them later. But Id also like to know if anyone here could get her fixed up and shooting and at what cost.
As far as your leak goes, they use the exact same valve assembly as the Crosman 3357, which I believe is still available direct from Crosman as a whole unit for like $20. There are quite a few people on here who do 3357 rebuilds regularly, I'm sure they'll chime in eventually.
you can get a complete Crosman 357 on amazon.com for like less then $50 shipped and thats everything except the "specific" parts that make it a aga.62 (I.E the barrel, elevator section, feed tube and indexing armature,barrel latch) but you get a brand new(better I say) valve, combat grip, co2 puncture area etc.
The only downsize is you have to mill a bit off the bottom of the "swivel part"(the bottom screw area) as the aga and the 3357 have larger parts on their front barrel block.
oh and btw if you take a tippmann detent and cut it a bit it works great as a 3357 or aga latch rubber.(cheap-o fix)
now as for the downsizing conversion? oh man for the money it sounds like you might have to drop into that working properly you might as well go with a 3357 in general.
I dont have the machines to make something like that but I can imagine getting it working properly on someone else's time would add up quickly.
Echo is spending a lot of time and his own $ to make his 3357 shoot .62 so I can imagine that a downsizing conversion with an elevator system would be rather difficult too.
not 100% sure just what I would surmise
While I'd never try and do it myself, converting the AGA to .50 has its merits... To be honest I don't think it would be that hard, as 1/2" ID tubing is way more common than .68 compatible tubing, and since there are less obstructions/openings between the valve and the ball on an AGA it will most likely get better velocity and efficiency with .50 cal.
The only problem with grabbing the whole 357 off amazon is the seller might not ship to your particular state. I know most will not ship pellet guns to NJ as I believe they are somehow illegal here. Not sure on the particulars of other states/regions.
But of course I'm going to be the idiot who tries to go the opposite way on this one and convert it to .68 instead.
I still think Calamity looks good but if you have like stuff hanging out the side, under and over it I dont think it counts as a real AGA anymore:rolleyes:
Well Im a welder and fabricator by trade but Ive been in and out of work and dont have access to a drill press or lathe any more otherwise I would be doing the conversion myself . Cause what I would do is widen the barrel for a 1/4inch down to make a shelf for the new .50cal barrel insert that was turned on the lathe to sit in and not lose it. the new feed tubes would basically be the same as stock just smaller inside diameter. The only thing I havent figured out is the mods for the elevator so it comes up to the right position.
No I live by the KISS motto Keep It Simple Stupid so I would like to keep it all centered like it is now but just for .50cal
