It would be nice.  IMO, there are not enough decent midcaps on the market.

Yes... but low on the priority list.  Hopefully we will have some next year.   FYI, we do have some real cap 30rd for the LE.  Just not available to public.

That would be GREAT!

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

The only thing I want on a KWA midcaps would be that oily look on my mag, it just makes it more unique.

Do you know how many bbs they will hold?

Until KWA comes out with a midcap of their own I would suggest the A&K mids. They hold about 55 rounds and are metal (which for me is key). They feel flawlessly and they're a good fit in the KWA magwell. When you first get them they're slightly tight (you by no means have to wrestle them out but they don't just fall out when you hit the mag release button) and are a nice snug fit. Once they break in the go in and out of the magwell very easily but still have no wobble. I assume KWA mids are quite a while away so I think that would be a good alternative.

Haven't tried those but so far my favorite midcap has been S Arms.

I'm for the King Arms midcaps. They are cheap, and they feed nicely.

Recently I got one S.Arms mid cap and now I am experiencing miss-feedings every other BB, in single shot. The missfeed shoots empty air and the BB just rolls off the barrel to the ground. This is pretty consistent.

Has anybody using these mags had any similar problems?

I have STAR Midcaps  they hold 85 rounds, the newer ones hold 100. They are ABS and have never failed on me. Took them to Irene 6 and never once had to reload them while in play.

Star... Wow. I have used a -no typo- 200bb midcap by Star. I loved it. They are like $20 each, though.

I still prefer the King Arms midcaps. $25 for 5 x 110bb mags, it is the best bang for your buck.

I have 6 S-Arms 160 rounders and love using them in my KWA. I had the same issue you're having when I first bought them. You need to spray some silicon lube down into the feeding tube. Use your gun's cleaning rod to work the spring inside the mag and add more lube if necessary until the spring action feels smooth. After a minute or two of that, your mags should feed flawlessly. Out of 6 mags I get absolutely no misfeeds.
