best bet would be browse thru the pic section, when you a Mag you like find out what you can about from the person who posted the pic, as well as researching the AGD section?

prices will vary depending on who is selling the marker? you can buy a brand new ULE Custom from AGD or Tunamart starting at 475 or buy a used one? look around for a bit, all the maintenance advice are in the AGD stickies and check out the agd videos on you tube?

here is a link to AGD:
Paintball guns - the Airgun Designs RT ULE Custom paintball gun - you customize this paintball gun the way you want it

here is a link to Tunamart:

Warning: Buying your first Automag will start a process where you will often wonder where all your money went until you look on your workbench/pegboard.

They have a bad habit of multiplying like rabbits

With that being said, settle on two things:
1. What you want it to do.
2. What is your budget.

There's a 'mag out there that will likely do that. If what you want it to do isn't in your budget, just buy a basic one and upgrade it later.

Maintenance?

Watch those and just buy good synthetic air tool oil. You're pretty much set.

Best advice Ive gotten when shopping for automags is to buy an autococker instead

Yeah, if you want to sit at the workbench tinkering with the thing instead of hitting the field and playing.

Logic aside : If you like the look of them go for it. If you like a 1986 tempo and want a 1986 tempo, that's what you'll get.


If you are a practical man there are better choices out there in a variety of ways.


High end mags (Ule, etc) are going to be 500+/- all said and done (hahahah done, that's adorable)

Low end mags (Classic valve, steel body,etc) are going to run you around 150ish.
