    The breeding cycle of the Classic Automag.

    Tell me if any of this rings true.

    Player starts with bog standard Automag. CF frame and PF body.
    Pretty rail is purchased and installed.
    Grip frame is upgraded to Intelliframe or other 1911 gripped alloy frame.
    VFG added.
    E-bay ReTro valve or X-valve replaces classic valve for RT effect.
    Mainbody replaced with inexpensive center feed automag threaded body.
    Original parts reassembled into Classic Automag.

    Process repeats.

    Start with an automag, any automag.

    play with it and now you want a 2x trigger, so you buy one.

    play some more and now you want a new barrel.

    so you go looking for a barrel and end up buying 5 you like.

    you play some more and now want to shed some weight.

    so you buy a ULE and a Xvalve.

    Now you need another new barrel.

    looking at this pile of parts you now realise you almost have another mag so you buy parts to make your pile into a mag.

    repeat

    Thought of something else. You have this parts mag, and you think "if I just did this it would be a complete loaner gun". Then you have a "loaner" mag and you think "If I added this and this part, it would be sufficient for a main back up gun".

    If they weren't so damn fun and easy to build it wouldn't be so bad!

    But yeah I've had one turn into 3 in a quick couple of months. It's pretty ridiculous.

    ...My classic could sure use a ULE body though...
