Probably the best mags i have ever bought. Heck, even the G&G mag that came with one of my m4's started to crap out on me but these midcaps are holding strong. I havent used them in an engagement or skirmish or anything like that yet but i cant wait to use these the next time i get to. So why only the four stars and not five? well i will tell you:

Pro: Metal, Strong Internal Plastic, Decent Spring, Reasonably Priced(compared to other metal mags), Durable, and heavy(can be con)

Con: Some mags require modification to fit well(file down or sand down the mag catch notch) VERY LONG break in period, Real Ar15 Pmags cost the same, can break if dropped(i used electrical tape and rubber on bottom to protect them/for grip), and they are the long type magazines, not the standard size ones (comparable to a realsteel 35-40 round magazine i guess)

A tip for breaking in the mags, load them to like 50-60 the first day and make sure to lube the spring(if you dont want to take the mag apart, coat your bbs in silicone before you load as well as the plastic follower inside). Leave the mags alone until the next day then unload and reload them again. Keep doing this while adding more bb's when the spring is loose enough to allow it(like 50 the first time, then 60-80, then 80-100, and so on). Make sure to not leave them loaded for too long but long enough for the spring to wear in.

Also know that the mag is a double stack magazine which means the bbs are scattered and not lined up in a row. This also means that the mag can jam sometimes but this can usualy be solved if you slap the mag against your thigh or something. Note: the spring is VERY FRIGGIN STRONG. Be careful when unloading the mag because the bbs will spray out like a firehose and fly everywhere if you dont release inside of a bag or large container.

In conclusion, i recommend these mags to anyone, but mostly to those who are expericed with them because they can be a hassle at first. Once you get them working right however, they are great to use! Theres a good chance i will buy more.
