AGD 6 pack

What exactly are they, and how do they work?

google yourself a pic, but they are a gasthrough stock with spring loaded box that hold 6 12g. Pull the lever back and it ejects the spent 12g and pushing the lever forward loads the next one.

I made a video about my 12 gram collection. I'll post it in just a sec.

The 6PAK was a revolutionary 12 gram changer that changed paintball for the better. Its invention directly led to the allowance of constant Air systems.

Its like a lever changer except that it uses a magazine to hold 6 12 grams rather than just 1. Its spring loaded magazine also means that the user only has to pull and push the lever to get a new 12 gram in place.

I show it off around the 4:20 mark.

Some on this site would dispute that C/A "changed paintball for the better," but the 6PAK was ingenious & revolutionary nontheless, like many of AGD's products. Plus, they are just plain cool.

...and for the record, I am not one of those who long for the 12g only days, I'm just pointing out that those guys are out there.

Well I suppose so but I believe it did. You have to admit with the advent of C/A paint prices came way down. I'm terrible enough of a shot to love that I can spend $40-$50 and have 2000 shots, rather than spending $1 for a tube of 10.

I mostly use 12ies but with recent developments I'm looking into open class.

Nah, the 6-Pak revolutionized Paintball by forcing the tournament promoters to allow Constant Air. Until the advent of the 6-Pak, all national tourneys were 12-gram only.

NSG (National Survival Games) tourneys were the last hold-out, and allowed bulk CO2 in '91.

Everyone ran a C/A rig in the late '80's for most rec play, there were a few fileds who were 12-gram only, but when the players stayed away, they converted.

Us tourney guys would run C/A rigs for most of the time, but switch to 12-grams a few weeks before a tourney. (Practice how you play)

C/A made paintball way more affordable. Some of the hold-out fields charged $0.75 to a $1.00 for a 12-gram, and $3.00 a tube for paint.
A day of play was pretty costly at those rates.
