Since I've decided to used my E-MR5 strictly magfed, but realize I may run into games where 8-10 magazines won't be enough I'm gonna make a box mag. I'm not going to be doing anything that hasn't been done before but I going to try and document it better than I've seen done.
The main "ingredients" for this project will be:
- Airsoft M4 box mag
- 10 round MR5/MRX magazine
- Reloader B rip drive
I found that the mr5 mag is quite close in size to the airsoft mag and it was nicely mounted so I utilized the existing mag mount. I cut the metal airsoft mag shell down and thinned down the mr5 mag so it slides inside the metal mag shell. The airsoft mag shell was just a little too thick to fit inside the magwell so I had to cut it so it sits almost flush with the bottom of the magwell.
Test fitting the box on the gun...
