2. The mags are highcaps. It's a VN highcap stuffed into fracking big metal shell. Not the end of the world I suppose to swap the innards out...but it's sad it it's own way.

Hauling that thing around...just to shoot as far/hard/ "any" other AEG (assuming they're both setup/working nicely), is just a bit disappointing.

Uber cool on looks if it turns your crank don't hold back. This is definitely a form over function thing though.

It uses a standard M4/M16 Version 2 gear box, it comes with a Madbull tightbore, and you can fire it in semi or full auto. The only downside is that it's heavy (10kg/22lbs)
