Magfed product line research

Howdy! Just dding my own research here and using it as kind of a public research thread on what was/is/will be available.

Feel free to post your own recommendations for products you have used or just like in general. If you used something that was a steaming pile of heap, let me know as well. Links are more than welcome if you don't want to type something out.

Info I need:
Markers with mag options (capacity, FS and/or roundball)
Barrel recommendations
Scope and mount recommendations

If you're considering a Hurricane but hate the size of 20-round mags, you could always go with the much shorter 14-round DMAG. Personally, I'm not a fan of them though since they don't change anywhere near as smoothly as the 2017 Helix mags. They also require you to shoot seven then rotate. The Helix mags are approximately the same size as AK-47 magazines and they are continuous feed. The DMAG can be hand loaded whereas the Helix requires the use of "anal beads" to compress the spring.

I saw those, but rotating after 7 shots and remembering if you did that already in an intense game kicks that option to the curb.

I was actually just looking at the Grizen GMAG. It is a 12 round FS continuous feed mag and is compact to boot! Pretty sure that limits me to Milsig, but I have no problems with that

So it sounds like that would eliminate the DMAG as well as the DAM since both mags need rotated. Never mind that a DAM also costs about $1,500. For that price you could get three T15s or M17s.

but but, that lower buttstock and eyes! For some reason I thought someone made a squarehead magwell adapter for the DAM. Probably doesn't exist and why I can only find the Zetamag adapter.

GMAG is the only thing commercially available that I'm aware of to fit the bill.... There's a guy on the custom paintball markers FB group making similar stubby mags for the t15, if he's not adverse to 3d printed stuff.

Issue with either of these - won't be ideal for roundball. I don't think the followers lock, which means paint deforming under constant pressure.

If they are sturdy and reliable, then I'm sure he will be fine with em.

I think this is the link to the guys post:

A five round mag? Jeez. You'd be better off with DAM mags even if you did have to rotate them.

In all honesty, it really sounds like your buddy would be happiest with the T15. It's the closest thing to what he's used to and the mags don't have to be rotated.

I think so too, actually just sent an email to Tiberius/First Strike to see if they have another mag option in the works.
