Original SMARTMAG Minimag FT

So, this weekend I stopped by the local pawnshop in my wife's hometown and once again the green Minimag that I have been eyeballing for the last 2 years was hanging on the wall. I check out the price and see that it has been dropped again and finally reached a point that I would be silly to not rescue it and bring it home with me. I don't really want another Minimag, I just figured that I would put it up on here and see if I could find it a good home. Well, I get it home and pull the valve out to discover that this is no ordinary Minimag, it is a Smartmag, serial number SM00503. It has a polished body and double trigger. The anno on the rail, sight rail and the barrel all match, whereas the anno on the powerfeed plug matches the expansion chamber. It also has the original Smart Parts green wood grips. I put about 40 balls through it and it cycles and feeds just fine. It seems to live up the Smart Parts hype and is fairly gentle on paint. It shows it's age in some dings and scratches but all things considered looks pretty good for it's age.

Here she is:









*UPDATE - GONE via Ebay

Trades I am interested in:

E-cockers - Karni, Superstocks, etc
KPs - rock and cock, not DF
anything cool in a wood stock
Milsim - I don't have any and would like to try it
Invert Mini
ATS?
PS3?
Something interesting? Surprise me.

Oh yeah, Thanks for looking!

Query: would you be willing to split the valve halves and show a picture of the internals, I'm curious as to what's 'different' about this valve.

At first I thought it might be a 'magic box'ed valve, but it's not.

Yes the Smart Mags do have the 8 hole mod but also they have a bigger air chamber (I think it is called the air chamber. Between the on/off and the bolt) When they were being made they drilled 2 holes on ether side of the on/off before the power tube was welded on. This was instead of the Black box that stuck out the side of the gun to increase the air camber.

Here is a closer look at the insides, the serial numbers, the markings, and the biggest blemish on the thing. It seems that at one point the barrel got stuck so the previous owner drilled out one of the ports to put a rod through. Doesn't seem to affect performance. From what the internet tells me the SmartMag had 8 holes in the valve and thinner side walls to increase the volume and flow through to the bolt thus lowering the operating pressure from 400 psi to 350 psi.
