Rater experience: EXPERT
Rater time in sport: 4 yrs


PROS:

- Great reliability
- Can select DRY FIRE mode or have the bolt lock in the rear position upon firing the last round (if your GBB allows it)
- CO2 is better than green gas, and cheaper!
- easy installation of CO2 cartridge
- Similar weight to a real magazine, but not top heavy like the real magazine. The weight is centered.
- Easy BB loading
- Holds 32 rounds (recommend only loading 30 to conserve spring life)
- Will not jam.
- Works great in a WETTI/WE SCAR AWSS GBB


CONS:

- Paint is extremely cheap. Will begin to rub off and scratch during your first game. The silver metal will show through making it non-realistic.
- Some mags will have a stuck/jammed empty CO2 cartridge. Easy to disassemble the mag by one screw to get it out. Not recommended to do in the field.
- If you do not like real weight, 8 of these will make your vest weigh an additional 10 lbs. You will feel it after an hour of play if you are not properly conditioned.


Recommendations:

- ALWAYS keep your GBB mags and equipment lubricated.
- NEVER disassemble without experience
- NEVER load 32 rounds, no more than 30
- NEVER store will a pressurized CO2 cartridge. Always remove for storage.
- DO NOT modify these mags to use anything but the 12g CO2 cartridge
- If you are going to carry these in bulk, maintain your combat physical fitness. This will prevent sore backs.


Explanations:

Overall, this is a good mag. Emphasis on good because they are cheaply painted. I will rub off easily, especially if two mags are rubbing against each other in a mag pouch. There will also be signs of paint wear from normal usage with your GBB weapon.

By the way, no airsoft gun is considered a 'rifle' because all barrels are smooth bores. GSgt R Lee Ermy and I agree that it is accepted to consider these 'guns.' - for the record.
