    AGD Relic: Centennial Minimag #900

    AO,

    I consider myself lucky as of last weekend at the field, and not because of some great move or a sweet shot. It is because I got to come home with the second mag I ever had to pleasure of seeing in person. It is not only just an old mag, but it is a bit of a collectors edition.

    I am now the proud owner of Centennial Minimag #900. It was at one time owned by Dale Hilton, former AGD Tech and owner of the now defunct BOA barrels. As far as I know the even 100 numbered Minimags were pulled aside by Tom, specially engraved, and given to certain AGD Techs. Maybe some of the powers in the know about the story can share a little bit more history on the subject. He sold it to a close friend of mine who I have been playing paintball with for many years and I finally managed to get it from him along with some BOA barrels for it and the original 6" Minimag barrel that matches the original ice blue anno.

    The Mag is well worn and has been played hard through the years as any Mag should, but it has held up well considering. I don't know what I am going to do with it. I don't know if or how I want to upgrade it, but regardless I will keep all the original pieces. I have even considering doing what is needed to run it on CO2 like a Palmer Stab, Anti-Siphon, etc. It would be for a real throw back since my other 3 Mags are either Retro or X-Valved.

    Either way I don't know what I will do but I'll keep some photos along the way just to show AO what happens with this Mag.







    Thanks for any kind comments in advance,

    Vanced

    that cap locks the velocity adjuster while playing.... its basically so you cant take an allen wrench on the field... when paintball was in the woods it was much easier to get away with velocity funny business like chaging it on the field... cause you could just crawl into a bush and change it... what a time.

    Thanks CaliMagFan & Creative Mayhem for steping up with the answer to the question. As they said Yes it is just a fancy Tourny Cap that doesn't use set screwes digging into the back of the valve.

    And Thanks again for the kind remarks. I know there are plenty of older Mags out there floating around and plenty of lower numbers. I am curious as to the location of the other Centennial's out there... I know I seen talk of #800 being owned by someone here, I forget the name at this moment so forgive me.. and I think it was #700 sell on E-bay last year or something...

    i think the extra work in the velocity adjusters was kinda unnecesay,,considering other than tools it was near INMPOSSIBEL to change the velocity while aired up even with a thumb adjuster

    Reminds me of mine..

    That velocity adjuster is a tourney cap to prevent turning up the velocity while on the field. There is 3 pieces to it, one is the nut that you turn to adjust, it sits inside the main nut then those 2 pieces screw into the valve, and the smaller looking nut screws into the lager looking nut and lock together after you have set your velocity. I love mine, I actually have another one just sitting here but its missing the small cap Otherwise I'd prolly be using that one too...
