hi there,

i have got a G&G GR16 an want to know whether to buy G&G 450rd metal mags for 20 plus p&p or get a box of ten 75rd PMAGs for 45 or get 120rd PMAG M version at 17 a piece... (will these fit m4s???) or as a final choice get a 350rd plastic mag of ebay for 10????

thanks,
mitchell

Ok, so you have 3 different types of magazines, low caps, mid caps and hi caps. Each is suited to a diferent style of play. If you like running and gunning then go for hicaps, if you like hunkering down and picking your shots then go for mid/low caps.

As to your mag types selected above. I have no idea if the pmags will fit a G&G, however they should be m4 compatable, thats the point of them after all, so they should fit. However if you have doubt, then buy 1 and see if it does, if it does not then someone will buy it off you in the parts forum. Same for the hicap really. I have the 10 ebay hicaps M4 for my Reals sword 97b. They fit, but they woble a bit and the springs arn't brilliant, but they do work and I have put a fair few thousand rounds through them (but the RS mags are so much nicer)

G&G are quite picky about what mags they like to feed with so I would try and stick to G&G magazines.

You most prob wont go through 2 Hi-Caps in one game... (this depends on the game length of course) But i run with 2 Hi-Caps and about 4-5 Mid Caps and i hardly refill through out the day!

But its up to you :)

Ima get two hi caps for two reasons...

1. Good measures (you can never carry enough ammo)
2. i dont want my (soon to be) chest rig gettin lonely :)

I run with 5 hicaps and another bottle of 1800 and tend to fill up at lunchtime. I am normally in a support role so tend to send a feww bb's downrange to allow the manouvre team to get into position!
