Magazines for Umarex/VFC HK416 V2

Recommended Posts

Hey, I just started using a GBB rifle and I got HK416 version 2 and seem to have some problems with magazines. I have one original version two mag which works flawlessly, and I also have version 1 magazine which does not. So here is the question: What is the difference between Version 1 and Version 2 mags (I'll write what I figured out so far) and is it compatible with version 2 VFC HK416 ?

As far as I understand there is major difference in the feeding pattern. Version 2 has all the bb's straight down, while version 1 has two bb's side by side. this seems to affect feeding mechanism, yet it's working with some occasional misfeeds and far from good.

Another difference is the magazine catch slot, which is significantly wider and deeper on version two magazine, which affects its ability to smoothly eject when empty. Version 2 mag is also longer, which I assume can only affect size of the gas tank.

So I wonder if version 1 are compatible with version 2 rifle because I seem to be getting poor performance out of my V1 mag and I'm not sure where to go from here, since all V2 mags are sold out pretty much everywhere. If anyone knows any fix or upgrade of some sort for version 1 mag to work good that would help a lot (not in German :a-laugh:)

Thanks
