About the different types of Airsoft Drum and Box Magazines
This category features the drum and box mags we carry for those wanting to never run out of ammo in their AEG. If you like full auto and need more rounds per magazine, this is what you need. Currently we carry drum magazines from G&G, as well as ICS.
Q & A:
Q: What is a drum mag?
A: A drum magazine is a high capacity magazine designed to hold thousands of rounds for your airsoft gun. Like a normal high cap mag, they need to be wound. Most drum mags are electric and do this automatically. Some models use sound to sense when you are shooting the gun, and auto wind the mag. This can also be done with a pressure switch.
Other drum mags must be manually wound by the user. This will put tension onto a spring that pushes the bb’s from the drum mag up into the gun. Most drum mags can hold 2000 to 4000 rounds. We offer drum magazines for rifles such as M4’s, PRK’s, ARP9’s, and more!
Q: Can I buy replacement parts for my drum magazine?
A: If a part of your drum magazine breaks, we may be able to order in the part to repair the magazine. If you have any issues with your drum mag you purchased from us, reach out to us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us at 888-316-7816.
Q: What kind of ammo should I use in these drum mags?
A: We suggest using the ammo that is best suited for your rifle, and to stay within the .20g to .32g range. Anything lighter than a .20g will cause jams and performance issues. Anything heavier than a .32g may not feed properly through the drum magazine. If you’re playing outdoors, use a slightly heavier bb like a .25g or .28g. This will give you maximum wind resistance and accuracy. Otherwise, you can use a .20g or .25g for indoors. Check out our bb selection here!
Q: Do I need to perform any maintenance on my drum magazine?
A: It’s important to keep the drum mag clear of dirt and debris. This can cause your drum mag to jam. It’s worth emptying your drum magazine completely and lightly shaking any small objects out of the drum that may have accumulated during play. You can also use silicone oil to lubricate the feed ramp that the bb’s go through by spraying a little bit down the top of the mag.
Q: How do I power my drum magazine?
A: It depends on the model you have. Some drum mags are rechargeable, and some require AAA batteries or something similar. If you are not sure which your drum magazine needs, refer to the instruction manual or ask us. If you don’t see a battery connection, your drum may not be electric. If this is the case, you’ll need to wind the front of the drum magazine until there is tension built up on the spring. Keep winding the magazine after the bb’s have reached the top of the mag to make sure the mag feeds properly.
