Dam Mag Maintenance Video
This video shows you how to fully disassemble your Dam Mags, clean them, perform preventative maintenance, and then reassemble them again.
Mag maintenance is key when it comes to expecting performance out of your marker. If your mags aren't feeding smoothly, you are essentially starving your marker of performance. Mag cleaning/maintenance is only necessary when mags internals are visibly dirty, or at the beginning and end of a paintball season.
Rap4 D-Mag "Upgrade" Springs
Many users have reported increased performance, specifically fewer ball breaks within the breach, by switching their Dam mag springs from stock, to D-Mag springs by Rap4.
When comparing the two, you can see that the Dam springs are thicker, and stiffer, which is great for harder shelled paint and ideal for first strike rounds, but may be too harsh on softer paint.
NOTE: Switching to Dmag Springs works great for regular roundball paint, but is not suggested for use with first strikes because first strikes end up flipping and jamming in breach. First strikes require stiffer springs to prevent flipping.

Mag couplers are an excellent way to boost your mag changing speeds on the field. They give you the ability to switch on the fly without having to go through the motions of putting your exhausted mag back in a pouch pocket/dump pouch, and having to reach for and reload a new one.
With enough practice, you will be able to keep up with the best of them (Speed ballers and continuous feed magfed markers) when it comes to feeding your marker paint.
NOTE: WHEN ASSEMBLING YOUR DAM MAGS USING COUPLERS, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE COUPLING SCREWS, AS THEY WILL PUT PRESSURE ON THE MAG SHELLS, AND PREVENT THE BALL FOLLOWERS FROM MOVING UP THE MAG CHANNEL, AND WILL INTERFERE WITH BALL LOADING, OR ONLY FEED HALF THE MAG
Check out this video by Unanistan of how he handles his mags and mag changing. Note not only the speed, but the minimal distance the mag has to travel in order to be fed back into the marker.
