Zshot PMAGS - clear internals :)

Postby TK8456 on Fri Nov 02, 2012 12:18 pm

Mine arrived today
003 to 010 (As Wallace promised the early numbers - I guess he's kept 001 & 002 ;))

First impressions was one of wet pants. I am doubly excited as I also have a brand new MDD style hop off Stu Biscuitdunker. My old mags are dirty and need a clean. So I was excited to see how these would feed through it.

Came sealed in PMAGS bags

Fully loaded mag
At first it was not very simple to see how many BBs you have left. But I've clicked where to look now.
My clue was the spacings between the spring coils and the black spring joiner. (very visible in the window)
As you fire off the BBs and they start to clear the bend, at first the spring is tightly coiled, as you keep firing the spacing increases. Giving you a clue as to how many are left in the mag
Gutted this window isn't on the other side :(

......But you can make out the shape of the 2 spring joining bit, so that is also a good clue as to where you're mag is.
You don't need to really see the BBs, you can make out the state of your mag from the spring joiner :)

They seem to be sitting higher than my old (he he OLD) Rampo Pmags with systema internals.
I've had to back off my hop a little but seen as I have 8, these will be the only ones I will use from now on in.
All fired consistently with just a few BBs fed into each of the 8
Image
Feeding lips seems to be held in differently too.

Slightly longer than Rampos copies

Internal is held in place with a pin using the internals own holes. You can see this just above the engraving

I have fired off a few mags from start to finish with no misfeeds. I used 0.3g BBs too

These coupled with Stu's PTW Project's hop mod makes me one happy little kid again. Slightly less well off kid, but a happy one none the less.
The mags fit solid in the magwell and these seems to be the dogs balls. I can't wait to play a game with these :)

Many thanks

Wallace

PS: I think this just became my favourite magazine :)

Nice review mate and congratulations on being the first to get them :)

The depth of the scoop at the top of the mag is impressive. You won't have any problems shoving them in, as it were.

Great review John hope to see you and them in action soon. thanks for the tips on the hop mod, I've done a lot more playing with it and I'm getting very consistant 3 burst hits, the path of the bb and the range are very impressive so fingers crossed as the nub beds in it will get better and better.

Ah that's good
I have some sugru here so make my own this week :)

I need to rod the mags and break them in a little as I had trouble with 0.3 Sunday but swapped to 0.25 and all was sweeeeet after that :)

I do own 10 of these as well, and running them on a HK416 body..I had to do a very slight mod on the case to get them to fit and also shave off the case on the top to make them fit (Only the Pmag case not the internal)

After that, they feel so solid and slide off the mag well clean. I came from a aeg background, and this is one of the best mags I ever purchase for my first ptw.

if anyone needs tips on how to make this work on FCC 416 kit...I can post it here or the to correct section (do tell me where I posted, since I'm a new comer :oops: )
