new pics with the RAP4 box magazine!
New playing vid with the conversion kit and box magazine!
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!
