Tacamo D-Mag Update

Looks like they're getting pretty close to finished!
They've made two different kinds: The "economy" version, and the large mags. The smaller ones require you to flip the mag after 8 shots, and the larger ones are continuous to 20. Both are FS compatible

Also some cool features added in, more info here.

For those lazy ones, here's an embedded video:

Not sure if you have the info right, The dmags are going to come in 14 (2x7), 20 (2x10), and 30 (2x15) rounds, They will also be making a continous 20 round first strike mag as well which will cost more than the Dmags!

They were kinda the first mil-sim markers, and they were all magazine fed. They've been around for at least 15 years or so, though I'm not even sure they still make markers. Their website hasn't been updated in four years.

The RAP magazine doesn't look too similar, though. ATS markers had this weird waterwheel gearbox thinger that would pick up paintballs in a rotating gear and feed them upwards, similar to the Automag warp feed. It was really complicated and I heard they malfunctioned/broke/jammed a lot. RAP's magazine is just a spring pushing the paintballs in a big circle. Seems much more simple.

You've got it, there is also a blurry 100 round first strike drum mag pic that just surfaced on facebook as well

You mean ATS.

Also, they dont work anywhere close to the ATS mags from what I can see. These appear (or at least the mags they claim they are based off of do) use a continous spring, think tape measure in reverse. ATS magazines use a cog and chain method to feed, with teeth on the underside of the bolt.

They still are made, go to the ATS section of the armoury for more info.

I don't really see it being similar at all to ats. But I love it if only they'd make a kit for my trracer but that's never going to happen
