I've decided that I'm going pump. Probably a phantom or ghost at first and waiting to find the right mag deal.

What kind of mag are you going to be looking for? Any ideas yet?

Something inexspensive and complete. I know nothing about mags but I'd love to get to know them. I really need some mag 101.

If you loved your phantom, do a vertical feed phantom with a bottomline c02 tank, like a 7 oz or a 12 oz. VL200 hopper is enough to play a ton of games with no reloading, it is light weight and pure fun.

#3 - What kind of upkeep do mags have excluding regular oil seals etc?

#4 - I know mags have valve levels, what are the benefits and what is the best budget valve to have?

Thanks man.
#1 - Newer tech can allow for very high and constant feeds, but you probably don't need something like that. An old 12v revvie is still a great one to have, though with pumps you can go grav fed without issue.

#2 - HP is more consistent, most fields will fill them, and less worry with O-rings getting mucked up by the CO2

#3 - Mags are very easy to maintain, usually just a couple drops of oil in the ASA before a game and you probably won't need to do any major maintenance for years.

#4 - Really only 2 types of valves: Classic and RT (E and X valves fall under this category) - For what you plan to run, a Classic is really all you'll need.


You can fiddle around with all kinds of things, if/when you get a mag, just hop into the Automag section and people will throw all kinds of ideas at you


I don't know how a pump-mag compares to a phantom, but I've always enjoyed my pump-mags, and it's very easy to switch a mag from pump to semi-auto.

I think pump-mags go for $300 ish give or take, which isn't bad at all since you can convert it to semi, 2 for 1 (They're getting more rare though)

A basic mag can be had for $100 on average, if you get really lucky you can get quite some deals.

If you want to switch between pump & semi with one gun, have you considered a pump Mag?
