Default Just Ordered APS Urban Assault Rifle, Wondering What Mags I should use

I just ordered an APS UAS and I was wondering if a PMAG will work

The gun takes STANAG. A PMAG,or any M4 mag should work.

I have heard that a majority of M4 mid-caps will need minor modification to work in the UAR.

I would go with MAG midcaps or the nongreen label PMAGs(25$).

I have also heard that mid caps do not work with this gun and that you have to modify each mag in some way. Personally, that's a deal breaker for me. But since you already bought the gun, I would pick up 2-3 metal High Capacity STANAG mags out of a Classifieds ad. It shouldn't cost you more than $20.

I am not sure but I imagine that EMags would work better than normal PMags so you might want to look for some.

If what JakeBworth says its true, it still should not be a huge deal. A small modification here or there isn't a huge problem. I would find magazines that match what comes with the gun. I know that Evike sells some however they're kinda expensive: http://www.evike.com/product_info.php?cPath=23_56_439&products_id=33780

Right with ya. I was all in until I found out mid-caps had to be modified in order to actually work with the gun. All reports and reviews I've read have confirmed that NO mid-caps (As of yet) are compatible with the APS UAS without modification.

With that said, grab a JG hi-cap (or other hi-cap of your preferred branding) and go to town.

It is an easy fix. All you have to do it get a file and scrape away a little plastic where the spring is. Very simple. I don't see why that would be the only reason somebody doesn't get a gun.

I personally tend to share mags w/ 3 other guys. We're a tight nit team. The last thing i want is to get in a heated firefight, and grab a mag and it doesn't fit/feed. Happened once, not gonna get in that situation again.
