- Old Reliable!
This KJW M9 CO2 mag is getting 5 Stars from me! Reliability is a problem with gas operated mags, but not this one. I have been through 2 Green Gas mags (KJW-cracked, SOCOM-Hammer valve) but know I can reach for this CO2 mag with no problems. I was in the field this winter and was able to use my M9 w CO2. The blow-back is real, hard and crisp. Holds fewer rounds than GG mags, I load 22 but holds 24. CO2 will last for 3 full mags, but I swap-out after 2. Shoots high FPS, around 375/385 w 25 bbs and may not pass indoor standards. Comes boxed w direction and wrench. The added butt plate unique to this mag is ugly, protrudes past lanyard ring, sticks out of pouches, unrealistic and makes a big grip bigger. Maybe 4 stars/ Nope, it works! (5)!
PS Care and Maintenance: Lube your gun, piercing pin Hammer valve in mag, Co2 dries out gun/extra wear. Follow Shorty's disclaimer-don't snap the feed lip w the spring guide or cross thread the cap. Butt plate has its' own spring loaded release-use it or loose it. Empty gas slowly from mag after action.
