Why would it being a JG be "nuff" said? It's not the best gun on the market but they are definitely reliable and worth their price.

They are well worth the money i have a JG mp5sd and love it but it does seem that the add-ons battery/mag etc are all very cheap parts i dont have to wind every 10 shots but i have had my mag unwind on me quite a few times

I think this is what he was talking about when he made that statement

It may sound horrible, but I carry a BB bottle wih me in the feild and one 300 Rd TM high cap mag. I can get about 400 rounds out of a single wind. I dont do alot of moving, and when I do it is generally slow; any thime I am running, it probably means I dont care if I make alot of noise.

Right now I'm running 5x STAR Real caps (30 rnds). Hoping to get some 68 round mids later though just so I have the options.

Get some para cord and some gun tape. Tie a knot in each end of the cord you attaching to the mag so it doesn't pull free of the gun tape. Had some on my Star mags like this for 2 years.

I LOVE Star mags. Did exactly what you said and bought the box. At about $10 a piece, I am not afraid of losing them. Practically disposable (I have 15 left )

Have to watch it tho as they don't work on some guns with upgraded Hop Up units. The unit doesn't penetrate deep enough to release the BB's.

Mizfit's gun is like that, can only take good quality metal mags.

my main set of M4 mags are 110 - 130 rd midcaps. I also have a couple of 180 rd mags that are reliable down to the last 5 or so BB's. (short follower)

I carry 5 King Arms 120 rounds mag and 5 other brand, they feed me very well. Right now, I'm waiting for PMAG which is like 78 rounds and it still holding at the customs until now

I rarely use hi-cap but sometime depend on the game host that require hi-cap.

Personally, I hate highcaps. I use 50 round mags for my G36 (well, 2 of them are MAG 100 round mags, but they feed so unreliably I only ever load them with 50 rounds), and 30 round mags for my MP5.

The thing I hate most about highcaps is how the encourage very poor trigger control. I've been to quite a few games where people with highcaps absolutly love hosing. That's annoying. I personally also love reloading, it's a ton of fun and I think you're short changing yourself if you only use highcaps.

I've found mid caps 90-120'ish rounds to be the most versatile.

In "fun" skirmishes where there's no ammo limit and quick games, you can load them up and blast away. Once you're over the spray and pray phase...a good load out of mid-caps will go a long, long way.

For games where there's ammo limits (i.e. real cap loadouts), you can load your midcaps to 33rnds (the extras are for the loss of bbs that don't make it up through the hopup chamber). If you continually mash real cap mags to max capacity...the springs tend to loose their spring and don't feed the last couple of bbs reliably (at least the ones I had long ago for the M4 and MP5 did that).

So for a 10 mid-cap mag load out in a fun game you'll end up with 900-1200 rounds on you (which is pretty non-reality...but those are for fun games after all).

HiCaps are laughable....it sounds like you're running around with a half empty cookie tin filled with marbles (or more to the point a metal tin half filled with bbs). They make such a racked that it's just plain annoying. And...you never get to simulate the "Oh-shit, got to fumble a reload in the middle of a firefight"...which is a lot of fun.

Best of luck,

Tys

I like 50-68 round midcap mags best. I find they're an all-around good balance between fun and realism. They generally feed reliably, carry enough ammo so that you're not constantly reloading, but also force you to have some trigger discipline in a firefight. And I personally like having the challenge of having to reload mid firefight.

High caps are ok if you're plinking or a skirmish or something, but I wouldn't think of using them in a game.

Only ones with fake cartridges like G36, P90, and SIG lowcaps.

Do they have fake cartriges in them? Are they G36, SIG, or P90 lowcaps?

Though out of curiosity, why don't you order them from here?

From UNCompany you're looking at $66 CAD before shipping. From airsoftparts they're basically the same price, shipping will be cheaper, plus Jugglez is a great guy to deal with.
