I have been using G36's since I got into AEG warfare some 4 years ago, starting out with a CA36E using stock and E1 magazines once they came out. Over the past 2 years I have determined that A: These magazines provide some of the best bang for your buck a single magazine can offer, and B: Feed the best of any gun I have used which includes M4/M16s, MP5s, M14's, MP7s, and a few other snipers.

Using my vest which holds 8 M4 magazines, but only 3 G36 ones, I am confident I need quantity per magazine, and these deliver admirably. Most people think 470 rounds in one magazine might be too much, however using a 9.6v 1600MAh battery and high speed motor, not only do these keep up but they almost never miss feed and if they do it's because I need to wind them again.

The solid black matte black material is very good, not only does it look better than a clear magazine, it's stronger than the translucent material. For anyone who is curious on how you can know how much you have left, you will learn to know the sound of a quick shake to let you know how much is left, and the magazine being made of plastic won't make as much noise with rattling BBs in it as a metal one would. This means they're also much quieter than M4/M14/MP5/G3 magazines that are full metal, and anyway, if you're really trying to be quiet, you're not going to be rocking your gun around enough to make the BBs shake will you?? And if you're in dead sprint, 99% of the time you're probably not worried about noise from your magazine lol.

Overall, the price asked for these is more than fair and after testing them for almost 2 years, I can say they are my favorite budget magazine. Once I get a new G36(my CA broke) I will be getting two more of these and shaving off the tabs, because while these are fantastic magazines, they are hard as @%^& to get out of mag pouches with those knobs.

Final grade? 4.5/5 because of the tabs and size, they break easy and get snagged on anything possible and take up the same room as 1.5 M4 mags making finding legit pouches for them difficult, but they fit in AK pouches, remember that for when you want to buy pouches or a vest.
