PostSubject: Echo 1 G36C with STAR Midcaps.   Sat Sep 29, 2007 11:27 pm

I'm getting a G36C and i was wondering if anyone knew if the STAR midcaps (140 rd) work well with it... I'm assuming they do, but I was wondering if there were any jamming problems, common misfeeds, difficult insertion, etc.

And In case you're wondering, I'm not a big fan of having to wind my mag every 30 rds and getting the sound of bb's moving around in my mag, so that's why I'm shying away from highcaps.

uhm a few things wrong with this topic. First and most importantly we dont even know what brand this G36C is! So we cannot help you untill we know. Second Hi-Caps are not wound every 30 rounds. My M16 only has to be wound once per mag...
So please provide suffiecent information for us to help you

Well it is in the Echo 1 section, but I agree, it is a little bit of a jump to get there. And I already have the Echo 1 G36, just buy a high-cap. It is not wound per 30 rounds, more like 150.
So that is a whole mid cap

Obviously he doesn't like high caps, so I would try to convince him to get one.

Get the TM 50 rd. standard caps, if you want a low cap, the STAR G36 mags seem to only work in the CA36 and the STAR g36, so I wouldn't count on them working.

Okay...

As was earlier mentioned, the G36C IS Echo 1, as this is the Echo 1 thread...

And maybe I'm thinking of something different than the hi-caps you're mentioning... I'm talking the one that comes stock with the G36C (470 rds). All that I had heard about it was that you had to wind it about every 30 shots or so... But maybe I heard wrong.

Winding high caps is all relative, how many times you wind it is going to determine how many times you are going to have to wind it again.

I actually have the mag, its not bad. When ever I am taking cover or moving around I wind it, it is alomst like a second nature now. So when you are just sitting there or something, wind it as much as possible

Thats what I do with my MP-5, and it works great. But I still think I'm going to get mid caps.

Okay...

But lets just say, for the sake of argument, that I really want to use midcaps... Maybe I just totally hate winding, and I like carrying a ton of mags on me, and I don't really like the BB "sloshing" noise... Will the STAR midcaps work?

That's the real question here, not so much that I don't like highcaps, I just want to know if the midcaps work. I've heard they do, and they fit quite snugly, but that source wasn't entirely reliable (a review for the mags from shortyusa).

I think they should, but you might want to just get a G&P or something, the reviews on airsoftgi were pretty nasty.

Wow...

Mixed reactions all over the board... On multiple websites...

Although a lot of the issues seem to be with non-Echo 1 guns, or guns that have had some mods done. Ahh well... I hate it when there isn't a universal answer...

Anyone here who has actually used them?

I had heard that they fit, BUT you need to sand a bit off of the mag catch on the magazine to get them to lock in and feed well.
All in all, it seems like an easy fix.

Well... No worries on if they work or not. Got my echo 1 G36 this weekend and the STAR mags work like a charm. No winding, easy stacking and no misfeeds. I have no complaints.
