Echo 1 is fairly compatible with other mags that will function in a TM. Some might not feed "perfectly" but 99% of them will fit in the gun.


cheers


Ps.
I hope you did not order from the states.

Welcome to Bed Bath and Beyoncé, if you find anything you like, put a ring on it.

As with their real steel counterparts, they use the same mag, though some brands of STANAG (M16/M4/all NATO rifles etcetera) magazine might not fit/feed perfectly as Rugger stated.

In my (admittedly fairly limited) experience, it's usually not too much work to make a mag that doesn't want to fit fit like a champion. Had to do a bit of filing on a little nub on a JG MP5 mag that refused to seat properly in my ICS. No real hassle.

But will it work with M16 mags? Im looking to get a box set of mid caps and it's a little tricky to find just M4 mags

Thanks alot people
One last question, I'm a little bit confused by the law in the FAQs, it's legal to import the mags from the USA right?
