I bought these about a year ago to feed my then new G&P M16. After a year of service in local skirmishes and bigger ops, I can say these are still awesome mags. The follower design is ingenious, feeding every last round in the mag so you don't waste those 4 rounds whenever you change mags from empty. They're also built like tanks. I've dropped them on rocks during fast reloads, banged them into trees, building corners, picked them out of the dirt, and they've always fed flawlessly.
These mags are larger and heavier than the MAG brand M16 magazines, as they're designed to replicate the weight and size of a fully loaded USGI 30-round 5.56 mag. I'm a big guy and I have my plate carrier configured so that weight is pretty evenly distributed around my body, so it doesn't relaly bother me. Just a warning for those who want a super HSLD loadout.
The only issue I had with them was that when they were fresh, the spring tension was so strong that they double fed the first 10 rounds and behaved like there was no hopup. I solved this problem by filling them up and leaving them loaded for a week in storage. Now they feed every round perfectly.
Also they are expensive on a per mag basis, coming in at $12/mag in the 10 pack. By contrast, MAG midcaps (8 pack) are $6.25/mag.
Those objections aside, these are great magazines for any standard AR-style AEG. If you have the cash, don't hesitate to pick these up!
- Full metal

Recieved these magazines today in the mail. The first thing i said was wow these things are heavy 6 lbs for all 10 magazines i have had experience with almost every type of M4 midcap there is out there. I have to say that these are the 2nd best that i have ever had experience with but thats behind systema magazines the follower design is ingenious so you never waste those 4 bbs every time you take out a mag
Follower: Makes sure every last bb is fed into the gun
Weight: Feels heavier more realistic
Trades: On the side it states 6.65mm X 45 looks very nice and realistic
Finish: Kind of a matte grey finish doesn't reflect sun at all
Nothing that i can say at all fantastic magazines it wont be long before i order another 10 of the amazing magazines
I bought these magazines because I was looking for a midcap that would work well in my KWA M4 RIS AEG. These are the best I can find! The MAG M4 midcaps are hit or miss in my gun, some work, but most of them don't. They feed the first few bbs, then the rest don't feed. These magazines however work, shot after shot. Even on full auto, they feed every round. While not as weighty as a real loaded AR15 magazine, they're much heavier than the MAG midcaps, so they help balance my rig out. Additionally, I use CONDOR M4 mag shingles to hold my mags. Because these mags are as long as real magazines unlike most airsoft AEG mags, they fit better in the pouch, and I can draw them out faster. The tops on mine were black however, not clear as shown. I much prefer these over the MAG M4 mags, not just because they feed better, but because the overall quality difference is like night and day, these are far superior.
- Feed great in my KWA M4, which is very picky about magazines
- Excellent finish, they look and feel very realistic
- Added weight helps balance my rig
- Feed all 79 rounds due to an extended follower
- As long as a real AR15 magazine, not ~1/2 inch shorter like most AEG mags
- 5.56x45mm trades on the side
- The follower appears fragile, I fear it'll break; however it does have a lot of give while it's out, so it shouldn't break too easily.
- G&G trades on the bottom, I'd prefer Colt, Armalite, or even no trades
