O-Ring / seal / bumper replacement?
Should the o-rings / seals / bumper in a Mag be replaced every year, number of balls, etc... or only if something goes wrong?
Here are a few links...Hope they help.

Sounds like you just need to purchase a $20 rebuild kit and replace o-rings as that gun is pretty old.
After that, you only need to put 6 drops of oil in the hose ASA and dry fire without the barrel to lube everything.
I have one of the best barrels, a Boomstick, out there for that gun which I still use only cocker threaded with a ULE body. Check my sig for stuff for sale.
Good Luck and welcome to AO.com. Mags are still my favorite!!!
Air issues at high rate of fire
I bought a used Minimag off some guy I know. It appears to be stock with a single trigger, but does have maybe the Black Ice Expansion chamber on it. Not sure what bolt it has. I have had no real problems with it, and have run about 5,000 rounds through it. The only thing I have noticed is that if I fire repeatadly and quickly, there seems to be an air loss or it acts as if the bolt can't keep up. I have done the 15 second trigger pull test, and there are no leaks. If I shoot fairly quickly repeatadly, there are no problems. Any thoughts/suggestions of things to look for/fix would be appreciated.
Shoot straight, shoot often...
