The Lonex flash mag is a 360 round magazine that you do not have to wind by a dial. WHAT NO WIND WHEEL!!! Yes that's right a high capacity magazine with out a wheel. But how do I make the magazine feed? Well that's why it's called the flash mag because instead of a wheel it has a pull cord on the bottom you pull about 6 times and you're set. Taking only seconds. The feeding on these mags are perfect I have never had my mags miss a beat. The finish is a very dark gray almost black. These magazines do scratch fairly easily but look very realistic. To get to the pull cord it's at the bottom of the mag covered up by a tab. Flip the tab and you'll see a plastic nub that you can pull about 2 to 3 feet and it will spring back automatically. It only takes me approximately 5~6 full pulls and worst case I can pop the tab open do a full pull during a match and then slap it shut. On a scale from 1 to 10 i rate these at a 9 only because the finish could be tougher. These mags are perfect otherwise. For the ak series owners they are also making these to fit your guns and would expect the same performance/quality after owning four of there m4 mags.
