Account validated! Time for an intro?
Meet and greet seemed like the right place for this...maybe not.
Anyway, glad to be a member here. After over a decade in paintball I can finally say I'm a mag owner. I've spent most of my time in the "service" dodging them (I picked the cocker side of war so many years ago) I've finally joined the dark side. I've owned and/or shot most every type of paintball gun, but I can honestly say I've never owned or shot a mag. When I was working in Wichita, KS I met a guy who called himself my "evil twin"...for every mag he had, I had a cocker to answer. He sparked my interest and a forum member here put his EgoMag up for sale and I'm now it's proud new owner. I haven't received it yet...but I have high hopes.
I'm sure I'll have questions as I get into this, but just wanted to say hi!
This is the gun I bought:

Good evening. Mags are just as great as the autococker. I'm on the other side of that coin. I started using a mag in the mid 90s and never looked back. I always loved the autococker. There look, sound, feel, and capabilities. But there is just something about a gun as simple as a mag. Basically nothing to ever go wrong. Play. Clean. Put up. Drag it back out 10 years later. Oil it. Play. Clean and put up.
Welcome to the forum. And have fun with your new gun. There are a lot of guys here that can help with any question you may have.
Welcome to the club. There really is no dark side, just the other side. Enjoy the new marker and have fun as far as questions just ask most everyone is ready and willing to help you out.
Ha ha...I just had an Alfred Hitchcock flashblack! Anyway, I've always heard the praises of mags...and never hated them like some of my cocker brethren. I always liked the mechanics of an autococker. Kind of something to tinker with off field since on field time is so short. But...since I've seen the light of many other types of markers that I thought I'd hate, I had to give one a try. I'm sure I'll like having at least one gun that doesn't need the attention of a desperate housewife! Besides...I've always been such a sucker for acid wash.

Now that you have pix..... that is one sweet first mag. If the for grip wasn't angled it would be perfect to me. Take care of it. It will street you well.
As for something to play with off field. I have motorcycles for that. Maybe one day I will break down and buy a cocker like you did a mag.
