I won't speak for the others, but as I said before, I want to load my mag to RS numbers. So, the short mags could, well... get more.
I was referring to diamond_SEA's post. I've browsed countless photo galleries of real guns and none of the pictures with extended mags are considered beautiful. Practical in battle? Yeah, maybe in real life. In airsoft, it is unnecessary unless you have a machine gun pistol like TM's 4.3 Xtreme. When a hi-cap pistol mag has the capability of firing 24-28 shots versus a real gun which is less than half that, its already not very realistic. So getting an extended mag that fires 40+ is the furthest from being real.
