Hello, I bought this drum mag for my JG Gen4 g36c, running a 9.6v battery. Here's my review:
Construction: When I received this drug mag from Evike, I was very impressed with the look and feel of it (also makes your gun look SICK). none of the screws were loose, plastic was very solid, etc. Definitely adds to the intimidation factor. In that respect, it gets a 5/5.
Feeding: It keeps up with the 9.6v very well, though it only feeds 40-50 rounds before winding again (it's not really much of a problem with the pressure which, though). 3000 rounds is a lot, and it does take a VERY long time to load, but this thing allows you to provide covering fire for a very, very long time.
Problems I've had with it: the battery pack. More often than not, one of the AAA batteries comes loose in transport or if the mag gets shaken around in combat. It's kind of tiring because you have to take the back plate off and put the battery back in. A piece of tape will fix this, but it's just annoying because you have 3000 bbs inside a drum mag that has been rendered useless. The pressure switch also comes unplugged easily, but again a piece of black duct tape fixes that easily too.
The biggest problem i've had with it is that it jams. I've used it in 2 wars now, and it has jammed in the middle of a game. To fix that, I had to partially empty the drum, and shake it around a considerable amount to get it working again.
Conclusion: You get what you pay for. The drum works pretty well, but not great. for $55, it's really not all that bad. If you're looking for your gun to shoot reliably all the time, I'd stick with hicaps. The only reason gave it a 3/5 is for the jamming issues. If you're looking for a cheap drum mag for a decently low price, this isn't bad, if you're looking for a lot of ammo that feeds reliably, I'd just get 3 or 4 hicaps.
