    I have a hi cap mag and like the capacity but don't know how to make it quiet. I heard there wore some ways. Any ideas?

    In theory the only way to keep the bbs from rattling would be to fill the inside with some sort of filler(cotton?).
    But I do not advise putting anything inside your mag that is not a bb.
    Just buy mid-capacity magazines.

    Just get midcaps unless you like having tactical maracas. What I do is use midcaps until I run out, with two hi-caps filled completely so they don't make noise just in case.

    Only way I have heard of is lining box mags with some kind of thin foam padding. I don't really think it's practical to try and silence your hicaps in any way, shape, or form.

    Buy midcaps.

    keep them full when stored in pouches. they shouldn't rattle when inserted into your AEG. if they do, don't shake your AEG while running.

    I feel like if you could find a way to wrap a thick, but not too thick, layer of rubber around them it would suppress the sound at least a little bit. Never tried it though.

    I have tried this. Sadly, it takes to many rubber bands to get a significantly amount of noise reduction.

    Break out the super glue and a few paper mate erasers...

    I have a friend who has the femme fatal, but his mag is purple. So ill tell him to do that so his purple high cap will match the rest of his gun, and be quieter on the field. But some how I think noise is the least of his worries. :rolleyes:

    High caps aren't that noisy in the first place. The firing sound of your gun is noisier than a hi-cap.

    It doesn't matter how loud they are. It matters that they make noise. If you actually want stealth and not sit in one spot then the noise is risky. Especially if you like my friends and I who spend most of our time behind enemy lines

    What I do is carry one high cap and 7 mid caps. I only use the high cap if I get in a major firefight. That way I'm not sneaking around with a half full high cap that makes way to much noise.

    Use the hicap when you have exhausted all the ammo in your midcaps.

    if you hold your AEG correctly, a half empty hi-cap doesn't make noise. if you run, then you will make more noise than your hi-cap.
