Also, the text file is kept on-line for easy reference. However, it is roughly 80,000 bytes.


Note: The numbers in brackets ([ and ]) are paragraph numbers. In places in the manual it sometimes says,"(See Part 3, Paras 7. & 8.)" So in Part three paragraphs 7 and 8 will look like [7] and [8].

I also recomend reading the safety summary and the notice to users if you haven't done so already.

Finally, the figures refered to will be inserted once I can get my hand on them.

Safety Summary

The following are safety precautions not necessarily related to any specific topic in this manual and therefore they may or may not appear elsewhere in this manual. These are precautions that users must understand and apply whenever operating or maintaining this paintball gun.

DO NOT POINT OR SHOOT THIS PAINTBALL GUN AT ANIMALS. DO NOT POINT OR SHOOT THIS PAINTBALL GUN AT PERSONS NOT ENGAGED IN PLAYING PAINTBALL.

While engaging in paintball, you and your target must wear proper safety gear including goggles, masks and pads.

FOLLOW ALL MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY.

Do not attempt to repair this paintball gun by yourself. If you are unsure about any aspect of the maintenance procedures, contact your local dealer or Airgun Designs, Inc. at (708) 520- 7507 or Fax (708) 520-7848.

ALWAYS USE THE SAFETY LOCATED BEHIND THE TRIGGER ON THE FRAME WHEN AN AIR SOURCE IS ATTACHED.

This paintball gun is always armed and cocked when an air source is attached. Disengage the safety only when absolutely necessary for play or testing. The safety is off and the paintball gun will fire when the red ring of the safety pin is showing.

ALWAYS CHRONOGRAPH THIS PAINTBALL GUN BEFORE USING. NEVER SHOOT THIS PAINTBALL GUN WHEN THE CHRONOGRAPH READING EXCEEDS 300 FPS. ALWAYS RECHRONOGRAPH THE PAINTBALL GUN IF VENTING OCCURS FROM THE REGULATOR NUT AT THE REAR OF THE PAINTBALL GUN.

The 68AUTOMAG is designed to vent off overpressures that cause unsafe shots, but, it is possible to fire over 300 fps before the overpressure vents off (See Part 2, Para 11.). Liquid CO2 in the paintball gun at a normal pressure also can cause shots over 300 fps (See Part 1, Para 11.). If problems persist after adjusting the velocity, contact your local dealer or Airgun Designs, Inc.

ALWAYS REMOVE THE AIR SOURCE FROM THE PAINTBALL GUN AND DRY FIRE IN A SAFE DIRECTION BEFORE DISASSEMBLING THE PAINTBALL GUN.

The pressures in this paintball gun are dangerous and must be vented before any servicing. Unloading and degassing the paintball gun (See Part 3, Paras 7. & 8.) are required for safety.

DO NOT FIRE A PAINTBALL GUN THAT HAS EXCESSIVE TRIGGER PULL.

The regulator allows gas under pressure to push the trigger forward after shooting. An excessively hard trigger pull shows an overpressure in the system. Contact your local dealer or Airgun Designs, Inc. immediately.

DO NOT PUT YOUR FINGERS INTO THE BREECH AREA OR DOWN THE PAINTBALL FEED TUBE WHILE FIRING THE PAINTBALL GUN.


Notes from Steve Mitchell:

Well, here it is. One day I got the urge to use an OCR scanner on my Automag manual and post it to this group. I thought I had better call ADG first and see if it was okay with them.. Eventually, they said yes and sent me a copy of their *new* manual on disk. I don't know if they're shipping this version of their manual with their new guns (anybody bought a 'Mag recently care to comment?), but I know it's a much different manual than the one I got with my gun. Lots of good information in this one that is not in the old manual, and in some cases not even in the video. This file is available via anon FTP at caticsuf.cati.csufresno.edu

I had to edit the format of their text file quite a bit, as it appears that their word processor's translation to ASCII had some weird ideas of where tab stops should be. I will probably have a slightly prettier version on FTP some time soon.

I hope to have the figures refered to in this manual, along with the CAD drawings, and AGD's animation (shown in the begining of the video) up for FTP soon too.
