Confirming the mag VN 130 magazines tested 21 won't drop out on hitting release probably due to light weight but all fit with little free play and no misfeeds or double feeds in both semi and full auto modes. Performed flawlessly and shot every round.

SRC High caps feed really good in my KWA CQR. It doesn't fall out of the magwell when pressing on the magazine release, but it only requires a slight pull to take out.

Hi Juarez78....Welcome to the KWA Forums and sorry to hear you have having issues.  Feeding issues can be caused by a number of things.  The mag, the BB's used, the feed ramp...just to name a few.  I have a few questions.  Does the stock mag work and feed well?  What BB's are you using, some BB's can give you troubles with feeding in any brand of gun or magazine.  Have you modified the gun or the mags.  Specific to the mag, have you tried lubing them....don't if you haven't.  

Regarding BB's falling out when removing the mag, this is common and to be expected with most magazines.  The design of the mag/feed ramp interface is the reason so not to worry here....there will be between 4 and 6 BB's typically that will come out when the mag is removed.

If it's not an issue with the feed ramp I would guess that it's the particular brand bb's that you are using thats causing your issues.

thanks for the input , the stock high cap feeds well . i also have a extra kwa high cap and that feed well . I used the kwa bb for a awhile then i started using elites .25 ..
Thats why I bought the new KWA pylmoer mags thinking it will fix my problem .. It sucks i used this gun three times since a had .. I even used a shorter kwa m4 barrel and still missed feed .

So, you have removed and replaced the bucking?  Check to see if it is properly installed.

Just purchased the SR10, and have been looking on the forum for midcap recommendations. I've read the compatibility list and thread, and from what I was able to determine, the following should fit/feed without modification:

• KWA K120 polymer mags

• MagPul 120rd E-mags

• MagPul 120rd P-mags (M-version)

• MAG 190rd metal mags

Is this correct?
Double post.  Please refrain from doing so in the future, it won't get you the answer any faster.  Please refer to your OP thread for the answer.  Thanks!

Yes.  Their value isn't really realized until you go to grab the mag out of a tight mag pouch on your rig as you are being shot at.  Easy to grab and load.  Me likes a lot!!Posted Image

From what I read, I didn't see this question covered, but I've never used the Ranger plates; are they compatible with KWA midcaps?

KWA designed them to be compatible with Magpul Ranger Plates.
