Was just wondering if anyone knew of a retailer or site still stocking Marushin M1 Carbine CO2 magazines, or King Arms CO2 magazines, which I've heard are also compatible. The only sites I've found stocking mags are SWIT Airsoft (https://www.switairsoft.com/product-page/king-arms-m1-carbine-magazine) and OSHOOT.ca (https://www.oshoot.ca/en/airsoft-magazines-clips/9637-springfield-armory-m1-carbine-6mm-co2-airsoft-magazine-15-rds.html).
Both sites I have never heard of or bought from before. I've also heard the Springfield M1 Carbine was a metal BB rifle, will the mags still work with 6mm plastic BBs?

Turns out that Springfield Armory/Pyramyd Air did make an 6mm airsoft M1 carbine alongside their air rifle. I purchased two of the mags for it and tried them with my Marusihin 6mm M1 Carbine, both are terrible. They are compatible with the Marushin 6mm M1 Carbine, but they require either some sanding on the "hooks" of the magazine along it's side, or a nice slap, for the magazine catch to grab the mag. With that being said, and maybe mine are lemons, but either the screw on the bottom of the magazine, or the magazine seals, are terrible. I believe it to be the screw. The screw seems to be a clone of the type on King Arms M1 magazines and must be tightened a lot just to break the seal of the CO2 canister (a lot tighter than the actual Marushin mag). Out of the two full day games I played with all 3 mags, so far 95% of the time the SA/PA magazines must be tightened so tight (again just to break the seal of the CO2 canister) that it appears to cause the canister to leak air, possibly falling out of place inside the CO2 chamber of the magazine. If you try to correct the mag by tightening it even one half rotation or full rotation forward, all of it's remaining CO2 will expel out the barrel immediately or after less than 5 shots.

aj czarkowski: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
