I'm selling my speed loader to someone, and I wanted to know, if I could take out the BB's and put them in the bag, and use them, or should I just throw them away?

Your bb's are good to use.
Unload the speed loader and use them.

Put them in your magazines!

Why ya selling the loader?  It's the best I've found and is required to load KWA KM4 and LM4 magazines.

I personally don't like the speed loader at all, I have found a lot of problems with it.

Interesting, perhaps you have a lemon as I've never seen a loader as good as KWAs and I've tried a lot.

What magazines are you loading?

I can load LM4 and KM4 magazines with this loaded in the dark without even looking at the magazine.  No reason to do this in the dark, but it works that well.   :)

It's less than ideal for pistol magazines or my MP7A1 mags though.

im a KWA fanatic............

but ive had 2 of these loaders now and they both were junk.  

they look cool and fit nice in a mag slot for carry... but they break the first time they got used.  BOTH of them.

Early one had some o-ring issues.  That's not the case anymore.  Also, these loaders have the same 45 day warranty that all KWA products have.

yes i was told it was an o ring issue by the seller.....  but the only way id ever buy another one is directly from KWA so that if it f#&%s up it would just go right back.

20K bb's is only about 5 games..........

Maybe for an AEG user, I don't fire like that haha. Though still for it to push 20k BBs through and not have a single problem I think is a good thing.

^^^  true im an AEG user most of the time...  but even with my gas guns...  bb counting is not something i do.

i go to sling plastic.  :clap: :drooling: :rofl1:

ammo counting is for when im shooting real steel.... even then, if im worried about the "count"..  then i shouldnt be shooting.
