Thread: X-MAG Yello/Orange/Red

    X-MAG Yellow/Orange/Red

    I thought I would share some photos of the X-mag I picked up off ebay last week.
    The anno is in excellent condition, a couple small nicks but I was very happy with how nice it is. I spoke with the seller and he was the original owner who purchased it from PEVS in VA. The valve is the original and it was not accounted on the PBLegion X-mag owners list. Feed neck has been modified. I have been on the hunt for one of these for years and I am excited to finnally own one!

    Serial # VV04963

    My only concern at this point is that I canít unscrew the air inputs from the valve or ASA by hand. I have always used a little Teflon tape but I understand certain loctite can be used also, maybe that is why it is so tight. I want to swap out for macro fittings to keep the stainless line away from the body and I donít like when it is looped out the back.

    Beautiful X bud, love the look of that color scheme. They are a blast to shoot and will land you a lot of questions on the field. Every time I use my X someone asks me about it

    To get the air inlets out you can wrap the valve/asa in a thick towel or cloth and put in between two pieces of wood in a vice, that way you can hold it securely and not mess up your anno.

    Love it!!! If you don't feel comfortable removing the fitting please contact tunaman I can't stand seeing wrench marks around the valves of automags

    Thanks for the advice Grimm! I removed both fittings trouble free using that technique.

    Donít worry Bunny it came out scratch free! I guess today has been a good day for the Tequila Sunrise fades, that is quite a monster you revealed. Love the work!

    CCM macro fittings are on order, I was thinking of adding a tuna blade but I donít dare install it myself the finish is just too nice to risk messing up.

    Glad I could help! I would definitely upgrade to a tunablade/fireblade, they are much easier to walk compared to the stock trigger (at least for me, I dislike the stock trigger). You can always have someone install the trigger for you if you are afraid to do it yourself.

    What color macro fittings did you buy?

    I am not a huge fan of the stock trigger either, I had a fireblade on an old emag and I liked it allot. I was thinking I would try something different, I think a black tunablade would like very nice.

    I ordered set of polished black and polished red ccm marcoline fittings. Most likely Ill put the black on the valve and the red on the ASA. I may try both red to see how it looks.

    Does anyone recognize the feedneck? If I switch to a black trigger I would like to either swap out the silver lever on the feedneck or maybe have the CCM feedneck mod done.

    This seems to be a "no rise" Smart Parts Q-Lock.

    Oddly enough, I have need for a red and a black CCM fitting, but didnt want to buy two pairs and get stuck with extras. LMK if you have an interest in selling the extras.

    Sounds good, I'll shoot you a PM once they come in and I decide which direction I am going to go.
