Maybe I should make a video or a youtube channel, haha for them.

Yep! KSC Magazines work flawless in the PTR. Feel like better quality, but probably the exact same thing.
Made in the same factory....you take it from there.

Wonderful!! I saw 2 versions of KSC GBB M4 mags, one who said nothing in their characteristics but the other said "Japanese version" .... in the pics looks same to me ... but are they both compatible with LM4?
Thanks!!

KSC = Japan

But, they are made in Taiwan as GCW, probably the exact same.

Pictures here of them, all 6 are KSC GBB Magazines (From WGCSHOP)

Hey guys, I see mags have been less than plentiful for a while! I just got lucky enough to find some lm4 pmags in stock at redwolfairsoft. I ordered two myself since they are so pricey!

It looks like the LM4 PMags are trickling back into stock now.  That's pretty much the normal price for those Magazines.  That's the price you pay for paying royalties to Magpul and the extra work to make it look like the real thing.

I just received my two PMags yesterday and I noticed that they don't engage the magazine catch as well as the Standard Magazines.  I really have to slap that magazine in the well or it will just fall out.  So far no leaks though.

I won't lie, the pmags look great! but I'm already at 1+6 magazines. Also spending $70 for 1 pmag is beyond the price I would spend for a "fancier" magazine :) (Even though that pmag counter mod is teasing >_>)

Yeah, that mod sounds like it would be pretty fun and cool to do!

Blow Back Army has been talked about here too.  I've actually tried to contact them 3 times over the phone and all I got was the answering machine.  Haven't heard a lot of good things about them.

No experience with Blowback Armory but small vendors of many products stock few items and depend on the distributors for "just in time" sales.  You order the part and they get it from the distributor and then ship it to you.  Minimizes the amount of money they have to invest in stock.  Works transparently and wonderfully as long as the distributor has the parts.

As an example I noted a full page advertisement for computer parts in a magazine a couple of years ago.  Dozens of motherboards, graphics cards, power supplies,cases, etc.  The vendor was really a storefront shop next to the convenience store in a small strip mall a mile from my house.  They had no stock but there is a giant distributor across town.

The only airsoft vendor in my region is Pyramyd Air who is on the other end:  big warehouse, no storefront!  They charged me the hazmat shipping fee ($20+ per case) for a case of green gas even though I picked it up and they didn't ship it.  My last order.  I can get green gas from California for the same price and not pay nearly 8% sales tax on top of that.

BBA is local to me. I called them last week. No mags in stock. They have just not bothered to update their website.

So I am going to DAVAI HARD 2 next weekend:

http://www.theregime...davai-hard-two/

IMHO its probably one of the best hardcore MilSim events in the country.

And it is standard mags only, with specific limited event supplied ammo. No polarstars.

In other words the perfect venue to debut my LM4C/416...

...except my LM4 is staying at home because I have ONE freaking mag for it.

Instead of awesome recoil and tactile feedback, I get to listen to my AEG sewing machine.

It is really a shame because not only would the LM4 have rocked this event, but I know that each and every one of the 80+ player/operators would be a serious potential customer and advocate.

It bums me out because as a 15 year MilSim airsoft guy, I have not been more excited about a new platform then the LM4.

It's a game changer, seriously. But it won't happen without mags. Rant off.

Sorry to hear this Jet, That game looks like it's would be great to be in.  We have MILSIM games here but nothing of that magnitude.  So far I've heard that magazines will be coming in sometime early next week.  but who knows at this rate.  I've known some people to order the Standard Mags for KSC LM4 of which I have one and I've also ordered the Magpul ones from Ebay for $75 each.  I haven't had a problem with either mags.  If you get on ebay I think you can still get the Pmag version for $75 and they haven't leaked on me yet.

Yep heard the the LM4 mags will start coming first week in Oct. I've pre-ordered six from my local dealer.

WGCshop is now out of stock on the KSC M4  mags. Yes I saw the eBay mags, but didn't want to risk that much coin on the Pmags given their rep for leaking. Plus I prefer the STANAGS myself.

It is what it is. With my luck the mags will show the day I jump off for the OP. I'll bet the AK's start arriving at the same time.

Just got in a shipment of stanag mags today. Not a ton, but they will start shipping out to stores tomorrow. Make sure the store has an order in with us, so you can make sure you get some.

any word on PMAGs?  I've been hoping for some to hit stateside retailers since ebay prices are almost extortion and HK shipping is just as bad.

I'm having some real trouble getting some mags here in Sweden :(  The only store with some in stock takes 125,76 dollars for a single Pmag <_< and the cheaper  stanag mags are nowhere to be found. :facepalm:
