King Arms M4 Question

Does anyone know if the King Arms M4 will accept WE mags? I know the KA platform is compatible with G&P/WA stuff, but I was curious on the mags since KA mags are prone to leaks and pretty much every WA/G&P mag is out of stock all the time. Thanks

No, WE magazines are specific to the WE gas system, you need to look for mags that are Western Arms (WA) compatible.

I hear the new generations of King Arms mags are better about the leaking issue

I figured that was the case with WE but wanted to double check since I was offered a few. I heard that too. I was just afraid to chance it and run into the same problem again. Thanks for the response.

No problem, and if you have leakage issuses, all you need to do is spray the valves and seals with some silicone oil and let the magazine absorb all that oil, it usually solves the leaking problem.

If you have the King Arms, get prowin or GHK mags.

WE M4 mags are just as bad in terms of leaks, although they say the new versions are better. Just putting that out there in case you decide to buy a WE, later on down the road.

I never had a problem with a WE M4 mag leaking... I guess I got lucky, lol.
