Hello Folks,

i cant believe it, bought 5 new magazines for my t12,
use it one time and the internal spring in the mag
unfixes from the housing, the self index dont work.

what a bad bad quality for 55 Euro for one magazine

three plastic bits and a little spring, no compare with
other solid magazines.

thats very costly :(

I agree, I've had my share of issues with the magazines myself, most notably a too tight fit so the indexing didn't work.

Truth be told, FX did offer to replace them.

i've just bought 2 new magazines(with my new t12 whisper.22).one of them worked flawlessly but the other was very tight fixed and did't rotate.
i just loose the central screw,spray a little silicone and now it's ok.
in fact i've never had problems with the self-indexing fx-magazines but i found them not polite with the JSB 16-grainers.
these pellets are made of a little softer alloy and the edges of their skirts quite thin.so in the process of indexing the pellet that is to be loaded next is hit and a bit jammed(the skirt) by the work of the mag-spring.
i solve this two ways:
-by weakening the initial tension of the spring
-by loading no more than 7-8 jsbs(16gr) or 9-10 jsbs (18gr)
and yes,i agree these mags are very,very expensive

I now have the T12 .177 with the 16 shot mag. It bends every single pellet skirt with JSB exacts

:shock: :shock: :shock: :evil: :evil: :evil:

The price is a joke. £50 a mag? I'm not even tempted
