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 makes a bunch of noise since it's an AEG

I know what you mean, the mags are tedious, and I've heard of someone around here (Connecticut) modifying the magwell to be able to accept plain old M4 mid caps, but it seems to be a rumour.
