PTS EPM + Krytac SPR feeding issues.

Title basically describes it.
My EPM mags are giving me a lot of trouble with my Krytac.
Tried changing the followers inside hoping it'd do something but no dice.

What tends to happen isn't that the mag doesn't feed at all, but it will usually only feed every other shot or every other shot kind of just oozes out.

Just wondering if there are any ways to troubleshoot this as I'd rather not buy new mags, and the epms feel real nice.

Just as a heads up, I tried my friend's Beta Project Pmags and they feed perfectly.
Also heard from something online that valken bb's+epms+krytacs= what's happening to me.


Any input/advice?
Many thanks.

Valkens bbs are terrible, and just stepping away from those may solve your issue entirly, secondly EPM mags are notorious for having feeding issues, especially when they are loaded fully, try only loading them to 80 or 90 rounds, and that should fix your feeding issues with them.

Everything said above would be exactly where I would start.

Whenever I'd come across an EPM that didn't feed properly, I would take it fully apart and lightly sand down the BB channels and it would fix it. Especially the area near the feed nozzle seems to have too much excess material that would cause BBs to jam. I've had this happen to two of mine and now they feed perfectly with all 150 rds fed into it.

This. Certain combinations of guns, mags and bbs just don't work. Try changing the brand of bbs.

Mmm.
I'll pick up some Elite Force bb's some time and have a whirl.

Thanks again.



Edit: Local shop doesn't have Elite Force bb's. Only things are Valkens and BB Bastard.
Is that a step up?

Try changing the hop up rubber. Krytac has shitty hop up assembly QC.
