I know that you need to keep them wound up but I was using mine just then in the Garden and it seemed that i was winding for every other shot, I'm guessing that's not right, how can you sort it out?

Maybe the spring inside it is starting to break and its not loading many BBs anymore?

I have found with my Hi-Cap that when the BB's are getting low, despite how much i wind it, it sometimes misfires so i just fill it up again and i seem to have no problems...

Unless even after you just filled it up and still it's not working?

That's quite normal, when you get down to the last BB's it dosn't always wind them properly.

Mid/lowcaps all thw way! :D

My MP5 hi cap only fires about 20 per wind, even though it holds at least 60 under tension from the spring.
It's just that after you've fired the first 20, the remaining shots aren't under enough pressure from the spring to be fed into the gun.

I'd empty all that's left in the mag and count roughly how many there are, if it's more than 100 and it's not working then the mag might be bust, if it's less than 100, just fill it up more and you'll have no problems.

Hope this helped.

Thats the thing though, I had just filled it up and started firing and also I did have some mid caps but had to send yum back because quite frankly they were sh*t, and hey are also brand new ICS mags, haven't even skirmished them yet

Sorry for double posting but, one works and one doesn't, I don't know if I will be able to send it back though, is there any way to fix them?, it's like the spring has gone like you say?

I'll wait a while because I have literally just bought them and I want to buy an Aimpoint first, also I would want some Metal Mid caps not plastic Ares Mags, could you suggest some, for a CA M15 A4

CA do their 120rd M4 midcaps in a six pack for 60 on firesupport, those might be a good start :)

Hey, I'm in the low cap crowd :P

But him going from highs straight to lows would be hard so best to go to mids first.
he will see the light :P

I see the light now, and always have, I just loved the idea of low caps for the extra realism, but it seems you need hi caps, I might get the mids you suggested but will eventually get the low caps, thanks finius for pointing some out
