STAR MP5 LOW CAPS

So I finally got my mags from Kuramae yesterday. I waited for these babys since October. When I got home I looked at the box. Box looked plain and nothing too fancy.

Brown box with this printed on the top left corner.

EXPENDABLE 30 ROUNDS
DATA: HKMP5 SERIES
CALIBER; 6MM
ACTION: BATTERY POWER, GEAR BOX ACTION
CAPACITY: 30 ROUNDS
Reliable with proper maintenance, Under the control of the law section 876 D 24 Title 21 U.S.C.

So I tried to open this box and it took some figuiring out but eventually I said screw it and just ripped it open. I was trying to keep it intact but oh well. As soon as I ripped open the box I saw not one, not two, but 10 black MP5 LOWCAPS!!! Needless to say I was thrilled I heard that they were supposed to come with loading rods but mine didn't but whatever right.

The magazine
The body of the mag has the color right but only a bit lighter compared to the TM Standard ones but its not very noticable. The only big differnce was the weight. These mags were very light but they are pretty strong and can get the job done. Loading of these mags was a breeze I was going to buy BB loader the thumb ones from TM but Kuramae wanted like 28 bucks for one so I decided that it can wait since I'm ordering some stuff from U.S. soon. A tip is that if you plan to use loading rods and you have a long version that holds like 70 mark down the 30 then another 30 so you can load mags quickly.

Shooting
They worked well and didn't have any feeding problems.

I give these mags 4/5 dead bodies

Pros:
low price
std cap for realism
if you lose one its not the end of the world

Cons
no markings like the 9mm marking on TM ones
light
color is a little off
