Which Airsoft Magazine is Best for you?

magazinesHow do you know which magazine is best for you?
Here are some of the basic differences:

Mid-Capacity Magazines

  • Most popular magazine choice.
  • Realistic in nature, but allow players to hold a sufficient amount of ammo.
  • Used mainly in AEG’s, SMG’s, and rapid-firing weapons.
  • Allow the player to load a specific number of BBs, normally between 90 to 120 BBs at one particular time.

High-Capacity Magazines

  • Most popular among novice and beginner players.
  • Some intermediate players will use 1 high capacity as a backup magazine.
  • Give you the ability to carry a larger amount of BBs. Constant loading is necessary while using a high-capacity magazine in a round.
  • Magazines will typically hold between 250 to 400 BBs at one time. Unfortunately, a high-capacity magazine only gives you the ability to have only 20-30 BBs ready to fire.

Low-Capacity Magazines

  • Used for military games, war re-enactments, or any situation where realism is a main priority.
  • Many SMG’s use low-capacity magazines.
  • Popular for use with sniper rifles.
