- Spare 29 rd Mag KJW 1911 Tactical CO2
Not sure what the beef is with this magazine. Mine functions flawlessly.
In the summer months, I'm getting more than 4 full magazines on a single CO2 cartridge; quite a bit less in cooler temperatures. I have experienced no leakage or poor performance with this magazine as others have reported here.
I like to rotate my CO2 and green gas magazines. If you use the gas exclusively you'll wind up cleaning all kinds of excess oil out of your pistol. The CO2 has no oil, so rotating it with the gas mag every other full charge utilizes (and clears out) some of the excess left from using the gas mag. This system works fine for general shooting or airsoft wars, however, if you're target shooting, it's best to stick with one mag or the other as they produce different velocities and groupings for a given distance.
Yeah, the CO2 mag hangs out of the gun a little bit, but if you're not too fussy about the looks, it doesn't hurt anything else.
Using CO2 in the KJW really generates some additional snap to the slide and sometimes with a brand new cartridge the accuracy will be erratic due to the additional initial CO2 charge and I experience some flyers.
Overall though, this magazine is great.
