Bad mag effects?

i was wondering if a magazine of poor quality could affect fps and accuracy. i have a broxa, and i know the mag is a piece of crap, but i would like to know what exactly does a crap mag do, in terms of negative effects on the performance of a gun. thanks a lot

oh, and i have already purchased a jg full metal 200 round high cap

All a shitty mag will do is affect the feeding reliability. It has no effect on accuracy or velocity. Accuracy will be affected by the hopup and barrel. Velocity will be affected by the mechbox internals (air seal components, spring, and spring guide).

ok, cuz it seemed that the gun fired extremely well(accuratly and reliably) when the mag was full of bbs and fully wound, compared to when it was next to empy

That's because of the spring. I have the same problem with my mags (last 3-4 BB's don't feed in). The only way you'll ever get all your BB's to feed in is if you have something "gravity fed" (such as a P90).

bad mag's feed poorly, so they cause dry fire which is really bad for your gun.

Get rid of the hi cap, get some smaller mags and make sure that you lube them then fill them competely then empty and repeat. I have a Broxa and it works best with the lower capacity mags that are taken care of.

Dry-firing is very bad.

EDIT: Non-factual comment, edited.

One of our resident engineers, MadMax, would strongly disagree with that statement. His experience is that dry firing places a significantly higher amount of stress on the mechbox than firing a loaded gun. So it is "bad" for the gun.

Note that this does not apply "that much" to TM airsoft guns. This is due to the significally weaker spring.

But it does still in fact put unnessacary stress on the Mech-box, no?

Maybe in the future, but since these guns are TM compatible, well at least the kraken is, dont fix anything. My moto : Dont fix anything until it breaks.

What kind of dry firing are we talking about here, one or two shots after an empty mag, or to ease springs, or sitting on the couch and playing along with Blackhawk Down?
