Umarex Gauntlet: Tweaking the magazine (Video)
« on: June 08, 2018, 08:09:34 PM »
This technique is not new as we have been doing this to Benjamin Marauder Magazines for years. The information is not new but the presentation in the Gauntlet realm is. In this tutorial, I show you how to reduce or in most cases, eliminate the rotary magazine from damaging the skirts of your pellets.

This technique can be used on the Benjamin Marauder mags as well.

Tools Required:
  • 5/64" Allen wrench
    Compressed Air
    A rat tail file like those used for chainsaw sharpening.

Nice presentation.

I wonder if you've compared groups before and after modifying the magazine? I sort of remember someone doing that.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

I did not but from this point forward any shot that missed I will toss into the "Magazine caused pellet damage" pool  ;D

Hajimoto, this is a really great video. I’ve suspected bent skirts for a while, but have never gotten around taking my Mrod’s magazines apart. You’ve inspired me to do so!
