They will work with older KWA g-series guns so will they work with the ATP? They are valves to keep the fps the same as green gas so it shouldn't put extra strain on the gun rite? Winter is here now and I would like to keep shooting.

While I have not tried them I really do not see why not.

I would be interested in hearing the results even though I have some doubts about it.

So I ordered and got my ra tech co2 mag. I have fired about 16 mags out of it and so far so good. I had a little problem with the spring in the bb follower. It was binding up so it would not fire all the bbs. But fixed that but now the lock on empty does not work but no big deal. It holds 21 bbs and I can fire 4 mags full on 1 co2. It is cold here so I am not sure if that effects the amount of gas. It shoots hard and crisp. I don't have a chrono so I don't know if it shoots any higher or lower fps. But it works a hell of a lot better than green has does rite now. I mostly shoot targets so fps is not that huge of a thing. I shot some vid I just don't have it edited and posted yet. So let's keep our fingers crossed.

When u do your chrono can you do a warm mag and a cold one so we can kinda see what they will act like in summer.

This is very intriguing because I have like 20 C02 cartridges from my previous pistol... Since there is obviously no silicon, how often would you have to re-lube everything? After every game...?

I guessing that would be good. I would be most concerned about a piston seal in the cylinder.

Was there any documented problems with the m17/etc. and these mags? or are they no comparable due to the ns2 system? This is my first gbb and I don't know a whole lot about or know anyone personally with the old m series guns. would be pretty sweet to own one of em...

Compatibility should not be an issue as the M series was actually driven buy the first NS2 system.  That's way you can use M series mags in the ATP and vice versa.

Yeah, I bought an extended m17 mag and it works great. I did search around for reviews on these mags seemed to function well from what I found... These would obviously void the warranty right?

Thanks for posting.  Just curious, the last shot you made sounded like the gun fired without a bb.  In this test, is the slide locking back at the end of the mag?

@gcw360 actually I had a problem with the spring on the bb follower. It was causing the follower to bind up so I had to clip some of the spring off so it doesn't lock back on empty now. But befor the problem it worked fine.

No Worries man!


I think you put it in the right spot since these mags work for multiple guns. I'm just glad you guys did reviews of these mags and thought I'd make sure that people viewing this topic would be able to find the review.

Darth, did you have to take the mag apart to put the shim in?
