    I've been bidding on it. (stopped at $225) I wanted it but it went just above my max bid. It's nice but too rich for my blood at its current bid price. Lol

    With all the original stuff, yes.

    I have two of those on offs

    I've seen them in the $150 range for the frame only. Usually they are missing any type of charger and the trigger guard around that price. Almost all I've seen recently did not come with the on off assembly either.

    I bet it sees over $250. I've been watching it as well since the day it was posted but it went WELL above my max. Crazy it started out at $25, lol

    Didnt know these were so popular all of a sudden. I have a couple of them, and they are fantastic. I dont have chargers for them. Do have on/offs. For those prices I may part with one. If anyone is interested?????

    This is why out of all the stuff people have proposed to do to classic mags I say someone bring back an electro frame. Nothing fancy since ramping and full auto is banned anywhere except your back yard. And I ran a hyper for a couple years in tourneys and regular play with no shootdown or ill effects, my buddy with an Angel back in the day actually liked my mag with the hyperframe over his brand new $1200 Angel.

    If someone pieced together a decent board with a clapper, then got together with a current milling company (Luke, Doc,XMT) they could set up to mill current frames. Cut the cost down by not having to produce an entirely new frame. With the cost of basic electronics you could count on maybe $50 for a decent electronics setup and say, $120-$150 for the milling on intellis, 90's, benchmarks etc. And theres a sub $200 electro. And I doubt milling would be that high if ULE milling by Luke is only $35, thats already half the milling right there to open it up....

    Just sayin

    Funny about the price since I don't think I paid that much for mine when it was new, still have all of it though it needs a new board.

    LOL, Id be down as well. They are all disappearing or dead now days. And even the Spyder frames for a Spydermag are getting harder and harder to find.

    I still to this day kick myself in the @ss for tossing my hyper after the board fried... But back in the day when it went out the board cost 3/4 of what I paid for it originally. I was out at a tourney and had to swap the battery... forgot to do the discharge on the capacitor (touching the +/- together) and just slapped the new battery in it, toasted on the spot.

    I'm blown away that people are paying so much for BooYah frames - the QC made it such that finding one that worked and would continue to work was totally hit or miss, and the design is chunkier that an early Eblade. I've owned a few, but I never paid more than $100 and even as a board certified mag whisperer I had trouble making them function consistently. I never thought there'd be a world in which you could buy a mag with a Hyperframe installed for <$200 and a standalone BooYah knockoff is $250 or more LOL

    My point is that's what happens when you set these guys on a low production run of a fancy and unique setup (i.e. 90* frame, scratch built, special grips, etc) and it ends up at $400. I'm guessing they could scratch build a very plain 45* frame (like the old Zenitram Bushmaster frames) for cheaper, like $200-$250 and make it in such numbers that it could be sold through actual retailers. Modifying existing frames can be more difficult.

    My point goes this way... if its only a mod to an existing frame, its not something that will sit on a shelf, its a computer file on a zip drive... you mill 5 of them, or 50, its parts coming in stock, and out modified. The ule milling is set up already for most frames, make a pocket for the clapper, a recess in the front strap for a trigger switch and its pretty much there...

    Thats all I was trying to get at

    Lacks the on/off. What is the difference compared to the standard one?
    Is it possible to have a standard on/off to work?

    The on off that came with these actually uses an emag/rt/x valve on off pin... the difference is the housing is made like the classic on off... ill take pics, be back in 5

    Left is classic, middle 2 are hyperframe/booh-yaah, right is RTP style

    Sooo...let's find some folks that can design and create a new Automag electronic frame for us. I'll throw a sizable chunk of start up capital in if we get serious interest.

    I would definitely be Interested in a new run electro frame

    The only thing is that I'd be a little picky about the ergos

    With my short fat fingered mole hands, not everything is a great fit, and I'm finding out the hard way that I need a fairly roomy trigger guard. (Always had one before so i never appreciated the potential shortfall but the new airwalk is a bit on the small side.)

    That said, if it does fit the ergonomic bill or even come close, I'm now in the unexpectedly happy position of bein able to afford something really nice

    So yeah tentative sale right here

    The bigger problem you run into in regards to a roomier frame, is the layout of the gun. It is very possible to use or make a larger area with the trigger guard, but you would have to run an rt length rail. The setup on an am/mm rail has the foregrip basically touching any frame made for a mag.

    You could do something like the egomag, but then the cost goes through the roof in designing and making a whole new frame
