Thread: Hypermag?

    Hypermag?

    Does anybody have any experience with a hyperframe. To me they look cheap. I've always thought the point of having a mag was that it was a great, all mechanical gun. Are they any good? How much do they cost and is it worth it?

    Bought one used and love it...

    Only problems I have had with it, is that it requires a slightly longer screw from frame to body rail/body, and it doesn't work if the battery is too low.

    Other than that, no complaints...

    It is much lighter than my emag (not quite as fast, not quite as light a trigger) and much less expensive.




    Worked fine with my mini-valve, fine with my retro valve, and now fine with my ULE & Xvalve...

    It is most definatley worth it. 190 is average price. I dont know what they are new, but I paid 275 a while back when they first came out.

    Good to know that somone of Tom's status seeks "relief" from a sport he helped create. A sport now ruled by a single patent.

    Hyperframes absolutely rip!

    I bought one secondhand, and fitted to a Classic mag with a Level 10 Emag valve, I had absolutely no problems setting it up. A lot of users find they need to increase the power level of the solenoid in order to get it to fire, but with a little careful tuning of the on/off pin mine works 100% reliably at power level 5 out of 9 this means with an 8.4 volt NIMH rechargeables in my 'frame and I get over 8000 shots from one battery.

    One highly recommended mod is to buy and fit a lighter microswitch (around 2). I can gently walk the trigger with two fingers on my mag and attain insane rates of fire.

    It really breathes life into older mags.

    I personaly like the fact that that a automag is all mech. If you want an electro why don't you spend the 500+ that you put into your mag(mag225=hyperframe275=500. Plus 225 if you have an X.) to buy a nice electro. Do you think an electro automag is as good or better than the other electros in the $500 range?

    when you find a cnc x-mag for 500$ new, you buy and call me and ill give you 750$ for it

    as far as electros in the 500$ range, they dont come anywhere neer an e-mag.

    Hyperframes are great. And when you say why buy a hypermag and spend all that mony when you could get an electro for 500? Well when people get mags they generally dont plan on getting a hyperframe. And instead of getting a whole new gun they can just upgrade..

    well, i dont have a x-valve. i have the stock valve and a classic mag so the only part of his rational that applies to me is:

    the 500+ that you put into your mag(mag225=hyperframe275=500
    so ill say again:

    when you find a cnc x-mag for 500$ new, you buy and call me and ill give you 750$ for it
    i think if you think about this carefully you will see that i knew excactly what he was talking about i was just throughing in the extra $250 as a finders fee cause im such a cool guy!
