I found this video of the gun in operation. The special recoil eliminating bolt really seems to be doing its job. Also, I know this has already been shot down, but those mags do look awefully similar to the M-Series mags...

Looks are deceiving.  M series mags will not fit.

Personally, I'm glad it doesn't use the old Glock magazines, even though I have two of the fifty rounders.  Why?  Because having the BBs exposed on the front is a terrible idea, and I'm extremely glad that the Vector magazines does not do this.  Thanks KWA!

I personally don't get why a lot of people seem to hate an open track GBB magazine. I personally prefer them over the closed track style because it lets me see how many BBs I have left. I understand that it allows dirt and dust to get in the BB track, but that can be fixed with a piece of scotch tape.

+100 to that.

I've never known how many rounds I have left in any gun, airsoft or real, I've shot (bar counting the shots) and it hasn't been a detriment to me. However, getting tons of gritty, sandy dirt in the BB track and subsequently locking up the feed has been a detriment.

I've never really made use of that "feature," I've gotten along just fine without seeing the BBs; there's more on my mind than that anyway.

Sure, you can put some tape over the track, but I find that kind of lame.

I wouldn't get hopes too high... prototypes are always subject to change. A main concern with a closer track is if the magazine jams that the only way to clean it is from one of the opening on the top and bottom of the magazine. As for an open track, it's easy to reach in at that spot and dig out whatever is interfering.

Sure, but AEGs and other GBBRs seem to have gotten along fine with a closed track.  With a closed track, you have much less chance of the thing jamming; the open tracks on my MP9 jam all the time, and it's not really that quick of a fix when you're on the field.

AEGs are difference since you can still pull the internals out and disassemble the parts completely. GBBR mags are closed track too, but the kriss vector magazines are much longer. If it does jam badly to a great extent, then there's no fix to it... However, I'm all for closed track as well even if it risks being useless if the follower is jammed to an extent of no return, assuming it's rare...
