Which brands of mags work best with CA Ak series?

Ive recently bought a CA Rpk7, but the mag it came with doesnt feed very well, unless i tip the gun upside down. I was wondering if anyone knew which mag brands work best in CA's AK series?

Could it be the loading nozzle is slightly off or something?

The not feeding unless upsidedown sounds like it might have to do with the spring in the mag not having enough tension to push the BB into the chamber. That would however be odd if it's a BNIB mag.

Have you tried to maybe shim the magwell or the drum mag so that it gets pushed the right way and will feed? I know that with some guns you'll have to file away at your mag or magwell and sometimes add material (ie. layer of masking tape to shim it forward/backward).

i got it working, for some reason the gun had a shim between the trigger guard/mag release and the body, i removed this and screwed the guard straight into the body, which brings the mags up into the magwell slightly. thanks for the advice tho
