While the GI mags are out of stock (thankfully my mags were mailed out), ASGI posted the Pmags today. They're selling for nearly $19 more then the GI magazines at $63.75!

Yeah I for some reason thought when I posted this that the GI mags were 54.95, don't know why haha. That makes it even worse, thank God that I ordered the GI mags before they were out of stock.

PROS:
- Looks really nice

CONS:
- Noticably Heavier
- Nearly $19 more a magazine
- Holds 2 less BBs per magazine

I wouldn't exactly say worse, because Magpul stuff does cost a lot more money, and a pmag is no exception. Think of other companies, they've priced their pmags around $60-$80 so I would say it's a good buy, considering the pmag looks cool and has the KWA gas efficiency no other company can provide.

I understand there may be a few downsides, but if you're using your LM4 with complete realism, you'd only load 30 rounds. It is a little bit of a downer that it is nearly $19 more, but I think your one pro outweighs all the cons.

Then go hardcore. Load your pmag to thirty bbs, lock it into your gun, rack the bolt, pull out your mag, top it off with one more round and go to town. Now that's being tacticool.... Lol

My local air soft shop quoted me only $54 each PMAG... So I ordered 7 extra from him. I pick them up tomorrow, I'll let you guys know if that price is solid.

This is copied of from Arnies, these weight are not exact.

WE M4 mag was measured via scale
LM4 mag was measure via the same scale
P-MAG was from my buddy so it could be off
AR-15 mag were done with a Canadian legal magazine that's restricted to 5 rounds.

I would guess that PMAG is heavier due to the use of lead within the metal alloy. I'm no metallurgist but Taiwanese player have stated that KSC/KWA metal does contain lead as part of the alloy.
