Where can I buy one?

Also anyone know where i can get this?

YouTube- ProWin CNC GBB M4 Magazine CO2 high pressure test

I know its CNC, and probably cost a lot more, but probably wont really ever leak.

I own prowin mags, ive asked this question already.

The general consensus is to stick with propane, though personally im still not 100% sure why.
It was explained to me, but I still dont understand fully as the properties of gasses are not my forte.

Huang will have the G&P co2 mags for WA in sometime soon i think.

My debate between the 2 co2 mag types is the valved filled one and the co2 cartridge one. This might be a dumb question, but if you use a cartridge one, its less likely to leak right?

I thought all CO2 mags used the 12 gram cartridges. didn't even know they made them that way.

but yes, a 12 gram is less likely to leak

CO2 mags will leak too....

But your main concern will be the pressure of CO2... which is 3-4x higher then propane, and also the exessive cool down it will generate... (no time for a physics class here...)
But you know how metal become fragile when its cold, and the higher pressure = a higher forced applied to the internals fo the gbbr, like the bolt. Thats would cause your internals to break...

So do you prefer lubing your mag seals to prevent the leak.... or buy new internals for your guns?

Yes, Prowin CNC m4 mag fills via valve
YouTube- ProWin CNC GBB M4 Magazine CO2 high pressure test

Knowing that it is less likely to leak is a good thing for me. I hate having all my mags leak on me when I just bought them!

Well if you have a full metal gun with all metal internals, I'm sure it will be fine. I'm not running co2 on a plastic gun..

I also have an npas, so I can adjust my velocity.

lube your mags?

The leaking out of the box mags is caused by the fact that they were stored... with no gas in them = the orings dry = leaking!

You should always lube your mags when you just get them, and lube them after you use them!

Yes, there are plastic parts in the internals...

when I get them, they were lubed and working, but after 1 game they started leaking. How much do you need to lube them? I spray silicone in the valves etc, and it still leaks. Am I suppose to dunk it in a pool full of lube?

Anyway, this is not a debate on whether I should stick with green gas mags or not. I'm simply asking where to buy co2 mags. If you dont want to help me on that, then please stop posting.
