20 rounds>8 or 9 rounds.

I guess that is just the infantry in me talking.

Why does everyone hate Rap4?

My reason for going tipx, is because I wanted something light. Fully mechanical. That can also use first strike rounds.
That is the tipx.
I run it with 12 grams.
Going to pick up a scope in the new year.

I wanted to play magfed games, because it's a different type of gameplay.
For me it IS about accuracy, not volume
If I want to shoot volume, I'll use a hopper.

I played my first magfed game last weekend. It was great.
I played a couple Of rounds with a RAP4 and DMAGS.
I found the RAP4 just too big and bulky. Not what I want.
I like playing in the front lines, and being light and quick is essential.
Hence the modified tipx.
I am working on a marker that uses the GOG Enemy and dmag maxwells.

And the zeta mags do 20 rounds.

I agree. The limited ammo aspect is what got me hooked.

Rap4 have developed a reputation for poor customer service, buggy products that don't work out the box and have poor reliability, and about the worst promise/deliverance ratio in the industry.

That and a "c" added to the front of their name is snicker worthy.

They seem to be improving however.

I shot numerous magazines with my Tipx in numerous games last week, without a single problem.

I had several problems with ball breaks in the magazine of the RAP4. And found it an overall unsatisfying experience.

Does anyone have pictures of different types of paintball magazines compared to regular ar15/ar10 magazines? I'm really curious as to how they differ in size, because it would be a bonus if I could use my LBT plate carrier and mag pouches.

Paintball mags are WAY bigger than AR mags. They can fit in AK mag pouches though.

Not very comprehensive but check out this thread on X7OG

http://www.x7og.net/mechanical-marke...ilsig-mag.html

It compares M4 mags to Milsig mags

I knew they would be overall bigger. I just needed the length and width.

GI mags are 2.5 inches, so that magazine on that link was 2.75 inches, not bad. May be able to fit it into a 5.56 mag pouch, but it will be tight. On to the HSGI tacos.

I'm way too cheap to spend more on a pouch than the mags it holds.

I do it for a living.

HSGI tacos can hold anything, except SAW drums.

How cumbersome would that be.
Again, the reason I'm really digging the magfed thing, is the ability to run a very light setup. And get around fast. Which is why I have the Tipx. Can't stand the stocks and all the other stuff hanging off those milsim markers. Way too bulky and cumbersome for me.

It's one reason that it's a shame Richmond had to poison 50 cal for everyone. Milsim is one place where smaller paint at higher velocities makes perfect sense.

I don't mind the size of it, won't be an issue on gun compared to a hopper. Biggest issue will be how it goes in a vest. Looks like it would be ok in a standard pod pouch.

My 20 round Dmags fit fine in pouches meant for AR mags.
