I haven't done a comprehensive test... Maybe you could convince me to do it
Do a comprehensive test if you already have the items to do so...I wouldn't want you to waste money on something that ends up not working...lol
I think that I will probably borrow a friend's G&G Hi-cap (what a coincidence!) and get myself a Battleaxe adapter and try it out... hopefully it works :banghead:

My G36/SL9 is my primary, and while intermittent missfeeds are more acceptable for a secondary or "fun" gun I was getting annoyed at the issues with my main boomstick.
If you can get it to work that's great, just don't expect much. 80% of the people I know who tried a magwell ended up abandoning it because they couldn't get it to feed properly.
I've read that a lot of people can't get it to work and have given up...but I'm hoping this works because then me and my friend can share mags!
This was interesting to read and helped me with my problem. Thanks!
Another reason that I want to use M4 mags is because I can store more of those than I can with G36 mags...also, it'd be easier to find someone with a M4/M16 mag than a G36 mag...
