My dad wants to buy an mp7, how many mags should we go with?  My first thought was 5 plus the two with the evike package deal.  Do you think 7 will be too many?  Just right?  Even too little?  I'll use it as a primary in the summer mostly.  Not sure how much he'll end up using it but he really likes it.  Another gun for my arsenal, I can't complain LOL.

gas magazines can get quite heavy.  honestly i wouldnt go more than 5 gas mags total.  I'm only running 3 LM4 mags right now and it has a decent amount of weight already.  That magazines don't lighten up as you use them either since gas and BB's dont weigh as much as real rounds.

Weight isn't a problem for me.  I'm used to carrying around my SR10 with a grenade launcher and scope on it.  What concerns me is price and rounds.  250 bucks give or take for 5 mags is a big price to pay with or without a coupon code from evike.  How long are the games you play with your LM4?  I'm assuming you play field?

I play all day with it, at Army birthday, pick up games, mini ops, Full ops....  I just reload on the field, I carry 1 or 2 speed loaders with a can of green gas and reload on downtime/respawn.  But i'm telling you right now.  your SR10 with grenade launcher and scope is nothing compared to constant weight on your rig.  I've seen my friend run with 7 mp7 mags before, and he was slowed down and couldnt really keep up, granted he is not the most fit man out there.  He normally would keep up with the front line.  Trust me when I say that 5 is plenty because its a lot more weight than you think.  You or your dad will need to practice your trigger discipline when you play a gas game.  be conservative with your ammo, and trust me its way more fun and gratifying to do those semi auto shots than simply just hosing a target.   Again this is my honest opinion.  You can do what you want of course.

Thanks.  I'll certainly take your word for it given I havn't used a gas rifle/smg for a primary.  I watched some MP7 loadout videos and no one seems to carry more than 4 spare, so I guess I'll go with that.  Always good to have extras even if you are not carrying them encase of a leak in another.  Does anyone make a speed loader specific to magazines with feeding lips like the MP7 and LM4 mags?  Or better yet, can you offer me some advice on how to go about it with a normal one?  I had a desert eagle that was the same but I could never get the hang of loading it with a regular speed loader.

our KWA Speed loader comes with GBBR attachment for LM4.  Now for MP7, the easiest way for you to load would be to hold down the follower and hold the bb loader in front of the magazine and just load like normal.  It takes some practice to get fast with it, but with the number of mags you are planning on getting.  I'm sure you will have lots of practice in no time.

Ah ok that makes sense.  What pouch do you carry your green gas in?  Just an M4/M16 series mag pouch?

haha I actually carry a small assault bag with me, where I keep spare bags of BB's and Green gas cans for my squad when I run LM4 for longer games.   I usually set up a defensive position and throw down the bag, battlefield style, and literally shout out AMMO HERE! for my squad mates.  I would then run around and the relative position of the bag and do what I need to do, pick up the ammo and gas when we move out.  But, the HSGI 32oz bottle pouch seems to work well for most of the staff here at KWA.

On normal pick up games at SC or w/e, the gas efficiency of the magazines seem to allow me at least 2.5 magazines worth of bb's, so I don't bother carrying green gas, and just speed loaders.  During breaks I go back to the car and re gas my magazines.

Glad to hear it!  But now i have two rigs, and I dont know what to do.  Wear my esstac Boar rig, or my crye precision JPC.  And they are both high quality, pricy rigs.  First world airsoft problems.
