Magazines that feed from the back

So, I am starting a new project.. namely a mag fed Etha.

Now, it will be absolutely crictical just looking at the side profile of the Etha that the magazine needs to feed balls/FSR's from the back of the magazine.

So.. apart from the Dye DAM, what other magazines are there that either feed from the back, or can be converted to feed that way please?

You could make any mag you want feed from the back. But roundball only. Just do a backwards magwell. First strike is your only real issue.

It is the main reason I originally chose the DAM magazines for my SP-1, because they fed from the back AND would retain FSR's facing the right way. Plus is meant I could keep the breach position further back in the marker *win*.

I'm considering other options now because I don't like that the most expensive marker on the market only has two stacked tubes. Sometimes I think they put the LEAST development into the product.

Not really, unless as Smiffington points out, you just use round ball.

Hmm. That was the reason I used DAM mags to begin with. It will make a the Etha project very hard without a mag feeding from the back, and I wanted to try Helix or maybe T15 mags. I really want FSR capable, otherwise it kinda falls on it's face.

Also... just a note... DAM mags are huge! lol.

You could always get a ADN Drum42 with a dam top...

The Milsig square heads have a decent enough space between the top of the mag and top if the collar to fit some parts underneath them
They're a pretty good,robust design and slightly smaller than the DAM mags
