I was wondering if anyone owns G&P 130 midcap magazines for their M4.  I need some midcap magazines very badly and right now I am looking at these.  I know that on the third party compatibility list it says that they work but it also says that the King Arms vn style works and they dont work with my gun.  I just need confirmation from someone on whether or not Metal G&P 130 round midcaps will work.  Thanks.

Because winding sucks. And because the jiggling of highcaps are annoying.

When stealth is important, high caps fail.  But seriously does anyone have G&P midcaps i need to know soon I've got a big game coming up and I need to order soon.

Yea I do and I traded it for a high cap CA MAG, because it is too tight and have feed problems on semi but work perfect on full auto, if you are a fast mag changer this will not good for you. You can file all the sides to make it fit though

The KWA Mags just needs to be winded once and it can clear the whole mag (exept for he 40 or so bbs that need to pusch the  others out). Seriously in a game you woudnt notice the bbs sounds on the mags anymore.. all you hear is  ratatataatatat "RELOADING" ratatatatatat!  LOL!.  the KWA mag has 360 rounds and clears in around 8-10 burst.  Lowcaps and midcaps are for high FPS precise AEGS like the SYSTEMA PTW. Well the good thing is that the realoading part with lowcaps make it more reallistic but then again you want to win the game dont you? If they allow highcaps then it would be to your advantage when your facing a guy with a midcap.

Anyway one f the G&P thermolds I have misfeed...

I recommend the S Arms midcaps.  Don't misfeed and hold the most rounds out of any midcap.

I used to own S Arms mags and I sold them because they did not work.  When the mag was practically empty, it would fire.  But when the mag was near full, it would just misfeed and the bb would roll out of the barrel.  Any suggestions?

I would say give them another shot.  I tried G&G (not G&P) mags and they misfed for me pretty bad.  I guess it is hit or miss with these midcaps.  It shouldn't be, but it is...Maybe it's just with KWA?  Could it be the hop-up feeder tube?

Most fields around me only allow 1 highcap and as many midcaps as you can carry.

And you would notice the annoying jiggle of bbs in a highcap, especially where I play on certain fields.

And what do you mean by "the KWA mag has 360 rounds and clears in around 8-10 burst" ?

Depends how long his bursts are ;) lol. Mine average 2-3, I conserve ammo until I need it to lay down supressive or get into some intense fire fight. I would say high-caps are annoying and I listen for them because I know which of my opponents use them. Mid-Caps, you dont hvae to wind, but you have to reload, but seeing as I like realism, reloading isnt a pain in the neck, winding just gets annoying and gives you finger cramps :lol:

KWA misfeeds on most MAGs because fo thr high ROF the sector chip helps minimize this. Any setup with high ROF would misfeed with bad mags.

Ok... I just brought a G&G 130rd mid cap.  Too tight to go in the mag well.

Sector clip help increase the timing on the tappet plate, en-sure a better feeding of bbs into the chamber.  Especially when you are shooting in high speed.

Do G36c's have a sector chip on it aswell? I knew the M4 had one since I've seen it on my gun :lol:
