Figured i would update this since i just got my box magazine!

I put about 250 rnds through it, not bad but i need to get differant paint, the paint i was using is pretty bad! I had alot of barrel breaks and when i got towards the end i had some break in the breach! Also need to mess with the setting on the box magazine as well! This is the newest version which has the updated board controls! Also the box magazine is not that big, i thought it was going to be much bigger but i find it to be a nice size!

Box mag review:

This is my short review on the RAP4 Box magazine Newest Version- Gen 3.

I was able to use my box magazine and my conversion kit this weekend. I am happy to say that i did not have any breaks in the marker or in the box magazine! I had my doubts before i strated and had my stock phenom body and cyclone ready just in case!

I played 6 hours and about 11 games with this setup, temp was around 70 with high humidty and on/off rain showers! I was using RPS premium paint (best paint to use IMO). My marker setup is as follows:
TechT BK bolt
RAP4 Tacamo MK7P conversion kit
RAP4 250 rnd Box magazine Generation 3 (newest model out)
TechT Ifit kit with .685 insert- shooting at a steady 275 fps-280 fps
Flasc 6" Barrel w/ Deluax apex adater and Apex 2
Using semi only (its what the field allows)

Now onto the review part.
I had my doubts about using the box mag and mag kit, but after the first game the doubts disappeared really fast! I was impressed with the box mag it kept up when i really laid down the paint! As for the size it is not too bad of a size wasn't over bulky where it got in my way or interfered with me aiming and shooting.

I only have two negitives with the box mag:
First was reloading it, why would you put in a small rectangular hole when all the pods out there are round! It was a pain to reload and i lost alot more paint on the ground than i wanted too! I think i may modify it somehow to use a pod or old hopper to relod it! Also the door flaps dont like to stay open, not sure how many times when i was reloading the door would shut on me! They should have add some sort of spring to keep it open while reloading.

Second con is a two part- first the box magazine forces the paint into the breach causing two paintballs to be loaded, sometimes i would shoot two paintballs at once (no breaks though). But this may be due to the fact i had a cut detent in there, I will install a new detent (uncut or modded) and see if that does any better. I think it will stop the couble feeding.

Overall i am happy with the Box mag and conversion kit, just need to fix the reloadin issue or find some square pods...LOL

Will post a link to some vids of that day using the mag kit and box mag!

I'm gonna post the same thing here that I did on the video...

Great job! Thats one of the better review vids I've seen, and very thorough! I'll definently be refering back to this when I get my A-5 kit. Again where did you get that stock? That gun is awesome, the few inches of length they saved by putting the air through the grip makes all the difference in the world. The A5 with the tombstone is just awkwardly long, I have to run a stubnose just to have some decent manuverability with the stock extended.

And then some...

Do they make a version of that gun that's all mechanical blowback operated? I don't like electronics in my gats, but I really like the overal design of that thing. That was better than a few of the Rap4 vids I've seen haha!

It's officially on my wishlist! One day when I have the money, I'm getting that.

My only other question is, does it have the same 1/4 turn barrel attach feature as the A-5? Because after modding it into a 1/4 turn quickchange on my A5 I was able to switch back and forth between a stubnose for extreme close quarters and a flatline for long range in like 2 or 3 seconds max. I also tried switching between the standard barrel and the stub nose using the regular threads before I made that mod, and it was terrible! Unscrewing one barrel and threading in the next took like 20 seconds! So I find it really impractical to swap barrels in game unless there's some kind of 1/4 turn feature.

Anyway I uberly want that gun with that stock, and then to get a flatline and stubnose for it and be able to switch back and forth in game. That with a mag kit, red dot sight, tac light and the air mounted to the folding stock would be THE PERFECT PAINTBALL GUN.

If you are wondering why are the kits taking soooo long then look at this thread from X7OG. Also read the answers since one of them is a picture of a letter sent from tacamo to a customer whos kit was all messed up (editor of this thread)

Hope this helps!

Sick videos, good job on the second one getting some eliminations in there!

EDIT:
You need to get a couple more of those box mags though, so you can stop messing around with pods and spilling paint all over the field :P

That is half the point of magazines after all...

I was getting eliminations all through out the videos i just didnt point them out! It was kind of hard to see since they were far away! It was kind of cool shooting people out through tiny holes in the bunkers, that they would never of thought a paintball would get through!

At $149.00 per box mag, i think the $5 pods are much cheaper! :)I am going to cut up a 200 rnd gravity hopper and attach onto the box mag to make it easier to load!

Yup, that's the price you gotta pay if you want full function :P

Sounds like a good idea, good luck!
