Great work! I like the idea of machine screws and nuts. Beats self-tappers any day.

ಠ_ಠ but holy heck do they really complicate the production process.

Well I can make several options if needed, for now however I would prefer first to make sure the whole thing works

Well perhaps if I've had one... It would be less cheap due to the rotor spring you know

Ordering a print now. I will get back as soon as I have it in hand.

I realized that I never hit submit on my post months ago, [crazy]. Anyways I have had the magazine for a while and besides trying to find a good print quality the magazine is great.
A few minor issues are:
1.Viewing the Vector from the side, there is about 2mm of back and forth play between the Vector mag well and the bottom of the magazine.
2. I can't find a screw and nut set that fits the holes created by the model, so I modified the ones there.
3. Once again I am not sure if this can be solved with a better print quality or not but the follower is a little to large and rigid to properly travel through the BB channel of the magazine. I just used the follower from the donor Vector mag and it worked fine.

With a little sanding to smooth the sharp corners this magazine has no issue feeding and fits perfect into the Vector mag well. Proportions are perfect also. I will upload the images I have when I get home later today.

Awesome!

Also have you counted how many BBs fit into the mag?

Awesome, I will scale up the screw cap hole and adjust follower proportions then. Could you also take close ups on how exactly the back of the mag plays?

I have it taken apart atm for testing but 42 was the number I remember. This is an approximation, the spring I used was cut in half from another vector mag. Also I haven't yet but I will buy a low cap mp5 mag and test again with that spring sense they seem to be the similar.

Do not hurry with investments, as far as I know airsoft magazine springs can be found sold separately, I saw PTW magazine spirngs on tiger hk
