AK Style Magazines for M4

So, if you have ever tried shopping online for M4 mags, I think you would've seen AK style mags for M4. My question is, are they any good? Here's a link to them: http://www.redwolfairsoft.com/redwol...cs_Box_Set.htm

They are made by King Arms and KA is a decent airsoft company. Some people have noted that there can be feeding issues with some KA mags but nothing a few drops of silicone oil for lubrication doesnt fix.

It says it's only compatible with Tokyo Marui, it works with G&G too, right? Your last sentence, it means that silicone oil can fix the problem?

Pretty much all armalites produced in the airsoft world these days come from the original TM design, save for a few other brands who tried their own thing. In short, yes those mags should fit in your G&G. It should be noted that not all companies adhere to the exact some tolerances and fitment specs as TM so while these mags may fit and feed there maybe other issues such as being to tight or maybe a wobble.

A few drops of silicone oil down the shaft to lubricate the spring usually fixes most feed issues with KA armalite style magazines. In the past there have been other feeding issues that required some slight modifications like minor filing to make everything work properly. This is assuming that the magazines have any issues at all.

AK mags for ARs looks (is) as wrong as AR mags in AKs.

The Magpul AK mags look kinda funky, too. Wish someone would make a copy of the TAPCO AK mags (real steel), which look a lot more what I'd expect a Magpul AK mag to look like (think PMag).

Actually here's a pic


comes in '74 flavor, too

I wholeheartedly second that.

And putting an AK mag into an Armalite is like putting tits and a pussy on a hairy dude. Doesn't make it any more appealing.

Although there is something about Rule 34 that could be applied to that...

And still, the SR47 looks horribly wrong.
