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...
Are we supposed to add oil to the two holes on the bottom?
I have read all the posts about oiling the gun. Why does my mag have two small holes on the bottom that say "oil" between them if we are only supposed to add oil through the ASA?
Suggestions for a new tank?
I have a minimag that I bought used about 3 years ago. Just about the only thing stock still on it is the valve, but I'm planning on replacing it with an X valve soon. I used to run a preset pure energy 48 3000 tank, but it went and I need to buy a new tank. Any suggestions? Pressure output? Thanks.
