    I'm new to automags please answer my questions :)

    Hi, I'm new to automags and I'm wondering about a few things about mags. I don't own one yet but I'm currently lookin for one. I'd like o know:

    How does a warpfeed work and what do you need to use it?

    Does an intelliframe work like a other electro frames? Or is it just for intellifeed?

    What is in your opinion the best foregrip for a mag?

    Are mags hard to maintain?

    Should mags be taken apart and cleaned before and after use? Or should you just drop a few drops of oil here and there?

    What in your opinion is the best non-electronic frame for mags?

    Thanks for your help and thanks for looking!
    .C.

    It feeds from the hopper and spins the balls up into a powerfeed. You really don't need anything special to use it. An open mind, maybe, because your playing style will change from using it.

    Not an electro frame - just intellifeed.

    Are mags hard to maintain?
    Nope.

    Should mags be taken apart and cleaned before and after use? Or should you just drop a few drops of oil here and there?
    Just oil it every now and then.

    What in your opinion is the best non-electronic frame for mags?
    Intelliframe with a groove trigger.

    Questions

    The Intelliframe is the best frame for a Mag, but the DYE frame also works well except it doesn't come complete like the Intelliframe.
    The Intelliframe is not an electronic trigger frame, but can be wired to run your hopper or warp feed.
    I have no experience with the warp feed so I can't answer this question.
    The Mags in general are probly the most simple gun to maintain! You want to clean the breech and bolt and oil the gun after each use, but don't split the valve halves unless you need to repalce the reg seat or unless you have a new one to install when you do take it apart!
    Forgrips are a matter of personal taste, I like the way a 15* verical asa with a gas thru-grip feels the best. The 15* kick puts your wrist in a more natural position then if it were straight down. Expansion chambers make a nice forgrip due to their size, even when running HPA.
    I hope this information is of some help to you.
    AND ON THE 8TH DAY GOD CREATED THE AUTOMAG!!

    Talking take care of your baby!!!

    Before you play, a couple drops of oil in the air intake on the side of the valve. But after you play, pull it apart and clean any paint that may be there from hits or any breaks you may have had. Keep her clean and oiled and she will last forever!

    Re: Mags Chopping Paint

    Greetings, .C.,

    I have put just under five cases of paint through my stock mag, and I have yet to chop a ball. As long as you've got a feed system that can keep up with your trigger finger, and as long as you remember to completely release the trigger after each shot, you should pretty much never chop a ball.

    Now, that's not to say that you won't break paint in your barrel. Some bolts are harder on paint than others. Some wire nubbins are harder on paint than others (the "p" shaped nubbins that were used for a time just shredded paint all the time when I used them... I got some plastic nubbins and have not broken a ball in my barrel since). Barrel breaks will happen from time to time, but the breakage most likely will not be the result of chopping paintballs.
