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.
I had looked there but he is out of stock and i figure since i am ordering other stuff (battery and bbs) that i would order it all together.

I can't find a battery any place in canada for my gun that is in stock ethier.

For guns that don't feed right with metal mags etc. Have you tried triming the nose of the retainer down a hair. I had a bunch of KA metal ones that you'd have to tap often and with a slight tweak they're now better.

There's a photo guide posted on here with a how too.

decide on a gun first before you consider batteries.

the general consensus is 14 gauge from the battery to the mechbox, but 18 gauge is also fine.

dean's connectors are by far the best and will fit in just about every application.

i already have decided on a gun. I am getting a CA M15A4 CQB.

I would have to change the connecter on my gun if i went with a deans if the battery has one.

I think you are overpaying TM mags are the most reliable lo caps i have fired. Magpul makes amazing products but 10-15 for a TM vs 30?

Magpul also makes the best midcap i ever used. It's as good as a TM locap in feed quality. Actually it's the best feeding midcap ever

The "nuff said" when it comes to JG:

JG mags and batteries are complete garbage in my experience. The guns themselves are decent with fairly few lemons but rarely have I had their included hicap mags work well if at all. The batteries either wont take a full charge and have low voltage or will take far more than the rated mAh, put out a really high voltage for the cell count, and then totally die within a dozen cycles. I know others have different experiences but that alone shows the low quality control, the fact that sometimes it works great and sometimes it doesn't work out of the box.

JG is also the only brand I have bought that had a dead gun out of the box. This was when JG first came on the market though and their quality control has improved since then, quite a bit actually, but apparently not with mags or batteries. Also MP5 long hicaps in general are known to be temperamental, the double shortys are far more reliable.

Anyone saying they will buy a JG or ECHO1 I still recommend to save up extra and get a CA or G&P. Neither of those brands are perfect either but have MUCH better track records.
