MAG brand mids are great.
Fit and feed great, quite durable. Only downside is that they are plastic, but they are strong plastic.

Price is $8 each if purchased alone, or 8 for $56 at most stores.

Accually I would go for the CA midcaps. They are full metal ETC. The MAG midcaps do work. But IMO are made out of a cheap plastic

Yes, they are made out of plastic, but no, it's not cheap. I've dropped mine tons of times onto rocks, sand, concrete, teammates heads, etc, and haven't damaged one. And since you can get 3 MAGs for the price of one CA, it's worth the difference to buy the MAGs. Keep them lubed up, and they'll feed forever...

And since the poster wanted the cheap option, I think MAGs are the way to go.

That is true. my friend got a mag midcap for a MP5. he dropped it and it almost split in half.

BTW dropping it on a teamnates head! what kind of team player are you?!

^That's the MP5 mag. We're talking about M4 midcaps in this thread, not MP5 midcaps. The design on the MP5 mag is far different than the M4 mag and is flawed in every plastic one I've seen. Either way, since they are so much cheaper than every other option, I would still recommend MAG, even for an MP5. In the off chance you drop one and it breaks, you're out what, $7? If you drop a G&P mag or something like that, and it breaks (which can happen too), you're out about $25...

But since the OP hasn't asked about MP5 mags, I think your comparison is moot... That's like saying don't buy a TM P90 because the TM Famas has creaky plastic... Doesn't really have anything to do with the question at hand...

And we play at a field that has a few cliffs, and I speed reloaded by pushing the mag release button and letting gravity take care of the rest. Chance had it that a team mate was below me, about 10' down, and it hit him square on the noggin. He was fine, the mag was fine, and all was well.

Stuff like that is why I recommend MAG. They take a beating and keep on rolling.

When I mentioned the MP5 mag, I was trying to say the plastic quality. IMO I really dont trust the plastic mags. But they are very very affordable, and if you dont want to spend to much I would get those.


BTW isnt the TM FAMAS supposedly very very durable

I think he was just using that as an example, i don't think he really meant it.

What about these, any experience or opinions? They seem well liked by both user reviews.

I haven't used those mags, but they don't really qualify as midcaps, more just metal lowcaps. They do look to be pretty high quality, just a little short in the capacity department.

And to end the off topic question, yes, the Famas is durable, but the plastic bends and creaks like there's no tomorrow. The grip especially sounds like a door in an old house, and there is nothing you can do about it. I know, I have one sitting next to me, and nothing I've tried can stop the creaks in this thing.

What is the difference between low caps and mid caps, and all i really want is mags that i won't have to wind, and have mags with significantly less round will force reloads making it more realistic which is my aim.

Usually, midcaps for M4s are 100-130 rounds. Lowcaps are 60-99 rounds, and real caps are 20-30, depending on the length.

Functionally, midcaps and lowcaps are pretty much the same. No winding, anything like that. Usually midcaps double stack the bbs, in order to fit them in the mag, while lowcaps single stack them. Look at how the bbs go into a 1911 magazine compared to a hicapa magazine and you'll see what I mean.

kust from that description is sounds like the low cap would feed better but i have heard of many low and mid caps that feed almost ever bb's regardless of capacity

Then the final question is which is better the G & G low caps or the Mag mid caps?

OK, they feed the same, maybe with the mid caps you might have a shoot a couple of times before bbs start coming out. But I would go with the G&Gs since the MAG midcap only holds about 11 rounds more. But the G&Gs are metal

^Take the spacer out on the MAGs and they hold 120-130. Just a little pointer.

No fooling around with a gun at all. Just the mag:

Super easy, and totally reversible if you need to. No cutting or anything like that necessary.

Calm down with the triple question marks, lol...
