Inserting a magazine properly

I read online somewhere that there was a proper way to insert magazines into a WE GBBR without causing damage to the feeding nozzle. I can't find the thread (searched through google the first time, can't find it now) so I'm not sure how to get clarification on this, but the main topic was WE SCAR maintenance, however there was a post where somebody said that loading the magazine into the gun with the bolt back, gently pulling the charging handle and while still holding it, guiding it forward was the proper way to reload. What I'm wondering is does it adversely affect your gun if you load it with the bolt forward and then just pull and release the charging handle to load a BB? Isn't that what the charging handle is for? Also, I assume your NOT supposed to just hit your bolt catch like in Call Of Dougie. Any clarification on this would be greatly appreciated.

I can't speak for closed bolt systems or all WE GBBRs, but for the Open Bolt M4 and AK no such issue exists: Insert, release the bolt, gtg.

I know that you have to be careful when inserting a mag in a M11 GBB since you can break the feeding lip if you just slam it in, but I think this is a feature for only that particular airsoft.

With RS, hitting the bolt catch is a good technique and will prevent jamming. If you bring your bolt foward with the charging handle, that will cause a jam unless you ''unlock'' the charging handle and let the bolt travel full speed with the buffer's spring.

With a GBBR it's a bit the same thing. The only difference is that you might end up with a broken nozzle if you don't reload properly.

You want a fast chambering action to prevent jamming aka nozzle breaking.

Thanks for the clarification guys, I've broken one nozzle on my SCAR already and I have a reinforced one in place now but I don't think they're "invincible" or anything, even those will break. But I definitely noticed that guiding the bolt slowly doesn't push the BB in fully, I guess that would be your gun "jamming".

make sure if you are putting the mag in with the bolt in battery, that there is some space in the mag, not filled to the fullest, if you can't push the top BB down, pop one BB out, so then it doesn't put unnecessary strain on the nozzle and the mag and mag catch etc

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

For sure, WE mags hold about 30+1 or something but I only fill 29 each time just to be safe
