A&K 1500 Round Box Magazine for Airsoft M249 Series AEG (Color: OD Green)

"This mag is beautiful. It's way smaller than you think it is, imagine a 50rnd 7.62 belt box or a smaller 100 ish round 5.56 box. It's tiny, but there's basically no dead space and that 1500 rounds fills the capacity well. Runs great.

"I love it. Works great on my FN featherweight 249. Took it to the field last week and had no issues with it feeding. One thing I noticed is the spring tube for the bb's expands when it's under pressure. I thought it was coming out of the box, but it was just extended. Wish this ran on AA's like the larger box mags, but the rechargeable battery lasted the entire day with no issues. Very happy with it so far. It does rattle a little bit on the mounting bracket, but this isn't an issue. There is a remote pressure switch for winding the feeding mechanism, but I just used the sound activated mode. Again, no issues with it. Thinking about getting a second one for those longer games.

"Way better feel and look then a Normal Echo1/A&K drum mag...

So what can i say. 1 game in. The Auto wide Doesnt work good on a P* m249 but on a friends normal AEG M249 works good. the Auto DeWinder built in ( so you dont brake the spring ) is nice to have.. so you can just leave the BBs in the mag when your not using it. Not a fan of the battery's wish i could just use a normal AA or AAA in it.

Con Auto wind Just doesnt stop... kinda scared im going to brake it if i let it keep going.

Have to wait and see if it out last a MAG M249 drum.

"So this magazine is actually really good for the saws you can get these days, I bought the mag and ran it around five times so far. It's somewhat heavy, and is very durable (for me) and it is easy to charge. I would have to say this is way better then the 2500 round mag, but it suffers from reduced ammo capacity and its charge time is not the greatest in the world.

Pros
Durable
Chargeable
Hefty weight

Cons
Price

"The Box mag fits VERY snug in the bracket on the gun, there is no wobble of the mag on my Matrix MK46 (M249). The pressure switch has plenty of cord for you to put it on the pistol grip, or hand guard. The plastic is DEFIANTLY a better quality than the stock mag, it is high strength polymer, much more reliable. My problem is the BS proprietary battery, and hidden/small as can be filling port for BBs. Mag seems to keep up with my SMPed M249, So in all, its a win i guess?

"overall a great mag at a great price. No immediate issues with feeding and I like the remote switch. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit securely fit in the classic army and easily pops out. It looks like it fits know work into A&K so if you have one of those, this is a great option. If you have a classic army, look elsewhere or know that you will have to modify it.

"Ok so i took a chance on this because I'm a fairly small guy running a bfg and the 100 rd mag makes me much more maneuverable and goves me greater stamina on the field. Got the box mag, charged it up, and tested it out. The thing fed great, sound control was great, and i was so much faster around corners than i am with the stock 2500 rd box mag. Then I took it out to the field for an afternoon of airsofting. By the second game i was getting numerous misfeeds. I played with the feed tube to ensure i hadnt kinked it at all but still the same. Once i got home i played more and it fed awesome. This was yesterday. Today i took it out again to resight and readjust the hopup after cleaning the barrel and i have found the problem. As suggested by other reviewers on the different color mags, the sound control had rapidly gone to the crapper. Of course during the game i hadnt had the pressure switch on my person so diagnosing in the field wouldve yielded the same result. I have had this mag for a week and less than 2000 rounds until the mic stopped working.

Pros:
Much lighter than original
Makes the m249 much easier to wield
Way better looking than original
Feeds great when wound

Cons:
Sound control doesnt work as well as even the original
Extremely small fill hole

In summary; use the pressure switch and dont rely on the sound control and you should be fine. Honestly i do feel its superior to the stock mag.

"Looks to be a good and better option than the standard box mag. Overall good construction but mine came with EU/Asia 220Vac wall charger...:( So I ordered a set of Tamiya connectors and a set of JST small connectors to build a charging cable to connect to a smart charger.

"Mine broke after the first use, the gears are cheap plastic and the box slides out of it's slot and can stretch the springs, I'd prefer a metal gear version with some sort of cable or cord tying the parts together.

"Lasted longer than the factory big green drum.

I picked up two of these and they have both broken. Probably had a total of 10000 bbs through them combined.

The internals are cheap plastic and it is a huge pain to disassemble the thing. Lots of loose wires, you will probably have to solder a few connections that close loose when you take it apart.

The biggest headache is no one makes replacement parts or upgrades for any of these things so once it breaks your stuck jury rigging stuff together from other parts. I had to use a feed gear from a old broken m4 high cap to fix one....

I'm going to save my money up and try a MAG 1500 drum and see if it is better quality.

"Broke within 20 minutes. Don’t waste your money on any A&K box mag!
