Is there some sort of identifier on the mags themselves? Like a date or version code?

5 modified grey MAG 190rd'ers and 5 highly secret, very expensive prototype black 190rd mags with ultra-high-speed-feeding-followers (made in china on a production line).

not particularly cheap, not particularly cheap-feeling, not particularly cheap in weight.

the ability to go 10 mags (and a hicap for emergencies) allows me extended time without resupply. this, however, doesn't stop me from immediately getting lit the f*ck up as soon as everything starts, leaving me and my 9 and 3/4 loaded mags sitting in spawn repeatedly for most of the game.

MAG 190s weigh ~255g. That's double a King Arms midcap which weighs ~130g. EPMs are 190g

yeah well, sh*ts heavy. I'm fat and slow. fully loaded with 10x190 .32g's and sundry, I'm even fatter and slower. on any given day, I'm probably the largest target to start with, and I have a distinct tendency to get shot in the forehead.

any mag that can be disassembled can be significantly upgraded with some of HS5's 3d printed followers that'll feed the builds even my mags can't. for even cheaper than that, most followers can be modified to feed better/faster. if you just want some pretty new shiny/dull black mags, I won't stop you but just letting you know that options exist, including the aforementioned mass-production chinese mags (in stock at several HK/china stores. actually, I'm fairly certain that they're not actually in danger of being discontinued so I'm not sure why I'm being a dick about it lol)

Is there a specific brand name? Or are you just talking generic china ones?
I've seen the new(ish) modify ones that hold 190. Not many others offer than much capacity.

they're CYMA 190rd midcaps. they have a hinged, rounded follower and feed delightfully well. not sure if what you'll get now is 100% the same, but they're dirt cheap.

Elite Force 140RD Midcaps, Good Price point for a pack of 10 and they work great in my VFC M16's. Never had a issue since I started using them.
