I wouldn't put all your effort into putting the magazine in. Insert the mag about an inch to an inch and a half into the handle, then use a lot of force to slide it up. It works best if you use the pal of your hand.
You can't really describe how much effort to put into it, but it should be pretty easy to figure out whats working and whats not.
Also, make sure you are putting the co2 cartridge in correctly. The way the manual tells you to do it is actually false. Unscrew the mag tightener until it stops, then put the neck of the cartridge into the opening first. The firmly grasp the magazine, and use your thumbs to push the cartridge in. Then, quickly screw the cartridge lock in place. This has to be done as fast as possible. It is not putting the cartridge into the magazine that breaks the cartridge head, it is the tightening it into place. So just tighten it until it becomes rather difficult, but you don't have to go too far.
The G&G Xtreme 45 is a very powerful handgun. If you instal the co2 cartridge and insert the magazine correctly, the first 3-5 shots should be fired into the ground before playing. The fps in those first shots are dangerously high, and it would be too unsafe to fire at anybody.
