My STAR plastic realcaps don't break when I drop them from 5ft onto a ceramic floor... neither do the "green label" PMAG-style real-caps.
Mind you, its airsoft and I prefer to keep my mags... so all my reloads are "tactical reloads" in that I do the L and stuff the empty mag into a pouch. You'll only see me drop a mag in airsoft when I'm IN the shit and need to change it out FAST (which is often), but I'm usually in a very low profile behind cover while doing so. If I'm caught with my pants down between cover I'll transition to my secondary and continue fighting until I get to cover, then I'll correct the problem with my secondary.
