U mag TPX

Do you think you could fit a U turn mag into a TPX the Zetamag looks cool but I think I would prefer a U turn mag so I wouldn't have to flip it With a U turn mag you could probably get 15 shots from a magazine that is the same length as a normal tru feed here is a ****y pic i did in paint its now to scale



here is a couple of normal U mags.

I wouldn't say that's true, but I do believe that instead of having a winding mechanism you'd have to have a manual pull to get the spring pulled back to drop balls in.

The paintballs would make the corner, but the spring/follower never would. That's why Milsig mags are as large as they are. You might be able to come up with something with a wider bottom end, like the top end of a TPX mag but the bottom half of a Milsig mag, but in all honesty the Zeta mags are a huge step forward. Something like this would be pointless/ugly/fairly useless considering the cost of a Zeta vs. what this would cost.

Not going to happen. There's a reason why te Milsig mags are as wide as they are, and that's so that the radius of the turn is gradual enough for then follower to move through. The tighter the radius the more spring pressure you'll need to make the turn and the more likely it will jam. In something the size of a TPX mag it just won't work.

I've been toying with a drum magazine, similar to the "snail drum" mags on "Artillery Lugers".

Again, they would need to be pre-wound.

I think you might have better luck with a twin stack setup that is designed to carry a secondary stack beside/behind the first that will be moved into place when the first stack is depleted.

The tricky parts are designing a spring system for the first stack in such a way as to have it not get in the way when the second stack tilts into position, and a follower/pusher on the first stack that will activate the second while still moving out of the way as well.

Good luck.

this. This is the only way youre gonna get two stacks to work in a pistol mag without having to flip the magazine like the zeta mags currently do.
