Here is a video review of the product.

Buy them here (I hope that's allowed).



To summarise, for 2.70 that I paid I am quite happy.

As stated in the video out of the box they don't work. The hole in the side does not align properly with the mag lock on the blaster leaving it to fall out. However, in under 30 seconds with a stanley knife I shaved off enough to make them function fine.

It is a tight 12 dart fit, so don't expect to squeeze in more like the worker mags.

If you are running on a budget, and you want to increase the capacity of your load out then these are the way forward. For less than 20 you could get 7 mags and carry a total of 84 darts. That should be enough to see you through a game.

I think I will invest in a few more for my loaner blasters.

Two weeks. Considering the distance and no additional postage cost I didn't think that was bad. You wait longer for Worker stuff.

I bought four from a UK eBay seller some months back. Same problem with the catch-hole not aligning, but like Davera I fixed it with a hacksaw in moments. One of mine arrived broken: I was promised a replacement but I'm still waiting (though that doesn't affect my review of the mags themselves). Another friend of mine bought eight of them, complained about the catch-hole alignment and got some of his money back - I think they worked out at about 1.50 a piece for him in the end, which can't be sniffed at.

Of the three of mine which arrived intact, the spring in one of them fouled itself up after a few reloads. I opened it, freed the spring, and put it back together, but the spring got tangled up again fairly shortly afterwards so I swapped it with the spring from the one which arrived broken. It doesn't seem to be a common problem though, at least, the springs in the other three all work fine. I've found that 11 darts is their best capacity, you can fit the 12th in, but it's a squeeze.

I guess you get what you pay for, but these are pretty good if you want spares to loan out.

FYI an 18 dart version is also available. I reviewed these some months ago on my YouTube. They are ok for starting out and derping around with. None of mine are totally broken yet, I sold them to lots of my players to help boost mag fed usage.

I've totally missed the 18  version. I will have to try and get hold of a few.

Cool, I looked for an 18 round version but didn't see any. I'll look again.

EDIT. Found some. I recall now that I did see them before, but they're not a great deal cheaper than brand Nerf 18 mags, so I didn't bother.
