The mags on the X-7 have a small tool kit with wrenches and lube inside, but other than that, just for looks.

You can put a reg or x chamber in there, you can hold tools and if its large enough paint,some think it helps them balance there gun better then a bipod,and some say it looks cool.

Regs and expansion chambers have to be circular...hate to burst your bubble. Bipods universally suck. They'te prettymuch for looks, or tool storage in outlaw games.

Only Rap-4s and such use in paint mags that look like real gun mags. Some paintball guns like the longbow or various pistols have mags which are basically tubes full of paintballs with a spring. You could make a reular paintball gun except pistol and longbow mags with a bit of ingenuity though.

So you want to know why it's called an A5?

If I could assemble a new regulator for a paintball gun, I could build a liver. How hard could it be?

I'll bet you $10 the above post is telling you to buy an automag.

ATS and T68Gen5 guns are .68 and use the mag to feed paint. The RAP5 and RAP4 are .40 or .43 and are magfed paint as well.

Um, when i said some people i was reffering to preference. This guy is an opsgear fan boy(HE has a scimitar in his car), and said that. Maybe he is lieing so he doesnt look dumb maybe he isnt. Hate to burst your bubble but it has been done, you can look on alot of sites, they basicaly got a realy wide mag and put an x chamber in it. Also regs can be thin(aka sidewinder,cp,gladiator,ect).

Exactly. The magazine doesn't have to be the shape of the x-chamber/reg (oh, shock!).

But as people have said- looks, feeding paintballs (like RAP markers), holding tools and crap that aren't allowed on the field, holding regulators and expansion chambers, or custom modified to do whatever. Quite a few, though, are just for looks, or being used as foregrips.

Many paintball magazines act as an expansion chamber or a remote line adapter. Some, like the stock X7 magazine, hold tools, others are functioning magazines, and still others are just for looks. It really depends on what magazine we're talking about.
Every time somebody shoots at someone who isn't wearing a mask, someone drowns a sack of puppies.
Every time somebody purposely overshoots someone, a dolphin is harpooned and eaten alive.
Every time somebody wipes, a family of bunnies gets run over by a Steamroller. That's why they have to reproduce so fast. Theoretically, that's how dinosaurs became extinct.
