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?
Awesome. Love the anno.
Me mucho likeee!
mag of the month
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.

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.
