A good old friend of mine (who's been out of Paintball for a decade) finally relinquished the command of his 68 Automag Classic to me the other day. It's in very excellent condition for sitting that length of time. All O rings and such are still tight and functional. After servicing and oiling and all it fires quite well but can be only fired slowly. The regulator seems to be slow recharging. I have thoroughly checked out the reg and all it's passageways, but can't seem to find any problem.
If fired and the trigger held, then wait a second and release trigger, the air chamber seems to refill slower then it should. I have tried to google the problem but found no similar action with anyone else. I'm not sure, but think this Automag may be an earlier model of the Classic line.
I had figured maybe there was an air passage that needed moded by Air Gun Designs but I don't recall my buddy having this problem with it back when he had picked it up second hand and put it to use. There must be something I'm over looking.
When my buddy had it, it was with expansion chamber and had Micro line and fittings on it and ran on CO2. I removed those items and have it on compressed air with single braided hose from the ASA to the reg. As I said there is excellent air flow through all right from the ASA and no O rings were frozen or damaged. I've also tried two different N2 bottles and the hook up right off my large fill bottles with no improvement.
Any help would be appreciated.
