Spyder magazines

Hey all,

anyone else really frustrated by the Spyder magazines for the MR/Hammer series markers? I've found that having only 10 rounds before having to reload is a pain. The worst part being that you can't couple mags to allow you to stretch it to 20.

Stock Mags on these are setup exclusively for right handed uses who will load/release the mag spring with their left hand. (and hopefully NOT be wearing gloves...) This also means that if you couple mags even with tape, you are forced to twist or rotate the mags rather than simply move them over or even at lease flip them.

So, since I was bored, I decided to do a quick fix on mine and see if it works. It turned out to be not so quick, but that's because the milling machine that I have access to is 1400 miles away and I had to make do with a drill and some needle files. I ended up finishing after dark, so won't test feed/fire until tomorrow.

This is how Spyder mags are made:

And this is how they should be made:

Ok, Actually, they should have pins on both sides and the bottom retention notches should be offset so you don't have to take the mag apart, but whatever. Might as well as for an automatic spring release when the mag is seated...

Anyway, I'm thinking this would add $0.01 to magazine production costs and I can't understand why it wasn't thought of...
