New here with one burning question...

Hey everyone, I just got my first decent AEG from a local store. Its the H&K G36C made by Umarex.
http://www.umarexusa.com/product/HK-...Gun,194,66.htm
The quality seems decent and everything but for the life of me, I cannnot figure out how to get the magazine feeder to work properly. It uses the standard style with the roller on the bottom to feed more into the actual 95 round firing section of the mag but there doesn't seem like there is any spring or mechanism to actually push the bb's to the top of the mag. I've used pistols before and know the basics and this has got me baffled. The "manual" is a load of horse manure and doesn't tell your anything besides the features of the gun. I hope I'm missing some big step or something cause I am feeling pretty dumb unless the magazine is actually faulty. :banghead: Anyone got any idea's? Thanks for your time.

Sounds like a hi-cap magazine. You need to fill it with more BB's in order for it to feed.

Thank you very much for your help! I dumped in about 80 bb's and the loader worked properly. I do have one more question though. How many, on average, rounds do you have to feed through to feed it properly? I assuming it differs from mag to mag and manufacture as well.

Slowly fill you mag with BBs and turn the roller. When the first BB is up, that is the amount of BBs that WILL NOT be shot, because there are no more BBs in the back of the mag that are pushing them up.

While playing, most people check their hi-caps by turning the gun upside down, listening to the rattle that remained BBs in the back do. If there is no rattle, your mag is "empty", even though there are BBs left in it.

most of the time the mag can't pick up the last 2 or 3 rounds so there might be a tiny bit of rattle... but get to know your gun so you can recognize the sounds. My highcap will feed all but maybe 5-10 shots into the gun so different guns/mags do different things. Gulag's advice is pretty good to figure out yours.
