Yeah, that says it all really. It would take a lot of practice to get smooth and fast doing that under fire. the reviewer guy looks like he hasn't had a lot of game time with it!

So those 20 round mags are basically 17 round mags if the 3 balls always stay in there? And I can see having to cock after every mag change could be a pain.

Well, like you can with a real gun you pop your first mag in, cock the gun, let the three balls load, then take the mag out and reload the three rounds. Now all your mags are 20 round mags.

Otherwise your first mag will be 17 rounds and all others after will be 20 rounds.

With a real AR you only charge before the first shot, thereafter when loading a new magazine you hit the bolt release - not the charging handle. That's very different (and much easier) than recharging every time.
I know how an AR works. You can still charge an AR after you empty a mag by cocking the charging handle for your information, you don't need to hit the bolt release.

Don't get your info from COD my man

Being forced to do that every mag is the problem. It's realistic if you use an AR that way, but I don't know anyone who does.

The 468 is an excellent marker and a huge step up for rap4. If the recharging doesn't bother you then it's a great choice

I get my info from shooting one in real life, I don't play cod ;p

That's true. Much easier to hit the bolt release, I don't own a rap4 by the way.
