Yeah, but I've heard quite a few stories about magazines that were overfilled and either started spewing gas until they emptied or it broke the mag completely.


The mag will only take as much gas as it can until the pressure between the mag and gas ankt equalizes. There's no possible way to overfill a magazine so it doesn't matter how long you fill. I have heard of what you say, but I have seen mags, mainly WE hicapa propane ones, just dump all their gas after filling. They weren't mine, so I never investigated. I would think its more of an Oring blowing or being out of place than over pressurization by filling the mag too long.

No offense, but can someone confirm I have nothing to worry about as far as overfilling goes? I just don't want to make a mistake that's going to cost me $30.

I had a KJW M9 and I loved it! It was loud, hit hard, good blowback, reliable, easy to clean. I only had one leaky mag.

Just put it in for a good 3 seconds. That's good enough.

What happened to it and was the mag leaky because of overfilling?

Edit: oops, I guess we posted at the same time.

the only thing that overfilling a mag will do is cause "jams"(the hammer will not be able to depress the valve to release the gas because of too much pressure)

No worries on overfilling. I've never seen or heard of it ever happening. Maybe if you stuck an air compressor...valve...thing in the mag and tried to fill it, sure, that'd be overfilling. But that's why the o rings are in place. It's a failsafe meant to prevent your mag from exploding. Nothing's going to break simply by filling the mag with gas.

I see there are mixed feelings about the WE gbb pistols. Are they really all that bad and how are the socom gear meu's? I was sorta thinking about getting the new od one, and the meu's sound pretty good....so yeah how are they?
Pro tip - Tokyo Marui gas blowback pistols DO NOT need metal slides to run propane. Trust me I own one.
Follow up - I don't suggest metal propane adapters. The one I had broke my mags in < 3 weeks. Plastic adapters have many more pros than metal ones. Don't believe me? HolyHandGrenade has the most experience on the forum (that I've heard of) with any adapters.
