Hi, my magazine for my Mark I only fires three BB's before charging out of gas. I don't see excess amounts of greengas venting from the barrel nor do I hear a leak. But this is coming from someone who knows very little about fixing gas magazines.

Hi PNP, welcome to the KWA Forums.  Sometimes you simply need to try a new can of gas.  Sometimes the GG can can seem like it has plenty of propellant in it but in fact it does not have enough to charge the magazine.  Also, what brand of green gas are you using?  Power Green, with a screw on nozzle, is notorious for causing these problems.

I don't think it's the can, it's brand new. I think the brand is Green Lightning, but I'll buy another can just to be sure. Thanks for the help!

Well, I guess I got a dud can. Ran out and got a new one yesterday, now it works as usual. Thanks for the help!

God, I love an easy fix....or as a certain member might say..."I love it when a plan comes together"!

Glad to help.

Oh, and for the record, narrow or small reservoir mags, (like the M series) are more prone to low pressure fill issues that larger mags don't seem to encounter.  At least that is from my experience.
