I think it would probably be against the 'spirit' of most mag-fed games, but by definition I would call it a magazine.

What i am referring to is what people have told me is standard rules for mag fed games so that every one is on same playing page. I was told tjat mag fed is limited paint from 10 to 20 rounds. If it holds more than that, say a pocket hopper which can hold 50, then you are above the rest. That is what i was told.

Maybe i took the op question the wrong way. I thought he was asking if ok in a mag fed game..

q loader=paint blender.
q loader=/= paint hopper loader or magazine.

The q loader filled me with hope, and now it is a well of sadness and disappointment in the back of my closet and mind.

Holy **** I didn't know that was a real gun!! I remember it being in 007 Agent Under Fire but I always assumed it was made-up.

Or is it more a matter of what marker it is on? I know if I mount it on say an ego 11 they will say hell no but on say a mil sim marker like an sp1 I might be able to pull. It off or a qloaded tipx.

Just want to hear some opinions thanks
If you want my opinion I consider it a spring-powered loader. I think the mag-fed crowd is looking more for milsim-type aesthetic.

To go off-topic I do not like the Qloader, I had a first generation kit. I don't know if they bothered to improve the design or if it's still the same from 2003-ish times

The plastic is very weak and under spring tension can spin up and shoot off like a dangerous, spring-powered, toy shards that shoot across the room

I much prefer battery-powered agitated hoppers for their simplicity

A revised 50-cal version of the Qloader made of more durable parts and more easily put-together and that had some mil-sim aesthetic would fit in more properly with mag-fed if it sat more closely against the paintgun

q-pod is definitely a mag. Holds ammo? Feeds ammo into marker? Replace when empty?

It's a mag.

It's not milsim.

But it's a mag.

To borrow something from airsoft, I'd call it a "hi cap mag". A magazine yes, but a higher capacity than normal magazine. And the 40+ shot drum magazines out there would count as "hi cap" as well.
Though I do consider "box mags" to just be bottom mounted hoppers, and thus have no place in a mag fed game at all. I'm all about function, not aesthetics.

So if I was organizing a mag fed recreational game, I'd give it a conditional yes, as long as it doesn't start to feel unfair. (and with their questionable reliability, not too much worry there)

If I was organizing a more competitive mag fed tournament, I'd have a clearly stated max magazine size, say 20 shots (with maybe 15 per side on a double stack), so then a 100 round mag of any shape would be a no.

So I hope i read and understood correctly
#1 reason no because of capacity

So
they make 100 round drum mags. what makes the different shape no longer a mag?

By definition yes i would for sure call it a mag. And as you and i say, it would be against the spirit of things.

Holy crap!! I did not know an actual mag like that exists in real life.

Thanks
