Magnus E-90 Mag - Finished!
As one of the co-winners (nice job mag79!!) of last year's Venom Challenge @ Tunaball 4 (aka 20010), I managed to walk away with 1/2 of a Mag... the elusive Magnus E-90 frame and a few other parts.
Looked like I had another reason to build yet another Mag
Over the course of the year that followed, I slowly pieced it together:
Cyberave68 ULE rail
Kapp 15* asa milled by Luke
System X rebuildable detent
CP 2-piece barrel w/ .682 back
(of course, I had to get a matching loader too )
I had all of my anodizing handled by Mongoose of Venomous Designs
The marker was assembled and tuned by Big Evil
Arrived on my doorstep last night
Unfortunately, I am in very short air supply so I only managed to dry-fire a short burst before the lvl10 started chuffing (MUST get more air today!)
I'm looking forward to unleashing this beast at the West Point Combat Classic this April!
I feel bad for my X-Mag
more pics coming soon!
She Looks Good, Now how much do want for it?
Very nice. I thought you would have more pictures than just one though...
It was getting dark when I got home from work

Finally got a chance to shoot it in my backyard this weekend...

How do you like the trigger? I've got one of each (Talon and Sabre)...
I'm planning on doing a more extensive review soon, but I really like it.

it's hard to say which is ideal for this frame and there's probably no right/wrong answer.
I found that I was able to walk this very easily and my fingers are horribly clumsy when it comes to ripping paint. I suppose that due to the curvature of the sabre, i was less likely to get my finger in the way of the trigger on its return. I can sometimes turn into a short-stroking mess with my pneumag (still need to fine-tune that thing...)
perhaps I should consider putting a sabre on my pneumag too to see if there's a noticeable difference.
as for aesthetics, I prefer the look of the Talon
Not having a whole lot of experience with the different trigger shapes, I was doing a lot of self-analysis on my trigger walking technique. I found that my index finger was lazy, and I thought the curve on the Saber would help, but it's on my pneumag and I short stroke it as well
