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.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
