By the way, Ian... Could you let me know how the quad stack mag is? I was interested in picking one up.
I've had 1 before: they are just about ok in use - like any other winding hi-cap, with all the same problems. Basically the only thing going for them is that they allow you to carry so much ammo without the massive extra length of an RPK type long banana mag. However the flange which holds them in place, the bit which you fit in first, is not very substantial. That's what killed the one i had before - went to do the rock'n'lock mag change as per usual and evidently didn't seat the forward part of the mag properly because when I rocked it, it just ripped the flange completely off. There is no way to repair it either as that bit is moulded as part of the whole body - even superglue is no good: it just comes off again after a couple of uses. But since i was ordering from gunfire.pl anyway, so could save on shipping, for £3.47 it's worth it as a back up, even if i get barely any use out of it before stupidity takes over again.
The 1st one i had needed the spring which holds the latch across the feed tube clipped by a couple of mm, because it was so stiff that BB's wouldn't feed. I intend to coat the inside of it with a layer of that very thin, 1mm, packing foam to prevent rattle too.
And having taken the decision to spank my Visa, I couldn't stop there...
20cm Length AK Scope Sight Mount for Airsoft Marui Cyma Cybergun AK SVD AEG GBBR - £25.00 posted (considerably cheaper than any of the other Zenit kit clones on offer and the only thing that will differentiate them will be the paint job - but i don't care, it'll be getting deliberately scuffed up and/or painted anyway).
