For 5USD a pop plus postage, these seemed like a pretty sweet deal. I bought four of them and they arrived in about a week with four of my 15/17s in smokey grey. The external quality is brilliant, they fit blasters (including the Rapidstrike where the Blasterparts 15s had issues) The first two I loaded were perfectly fine, they ran just fine at 11-12dps with a Hellcat pusher.

The latter two, however encountered this fun little problem. The followers have disengaged from the springs leading to feed problems.
The springs have gotten tangled which isn't such a great thing.

I'm going to have a look to see if I can open them up and fix the thing. Just a warning for others. :)

That's a very annoying defect. I would try out their customer service with those and see if they refund/replace them.

I've been seeing a lot of that with the 3rd party mags. Fortunately they tend not to be solvent welded together like the Nerf ones. Let us know how you get on.

One of mine did that but as UKNerfWar says they aren't solvent welded together so it was easy to open and fix. Its not done it again yet, but time will tell.

I had this issue with the pre-Lightake clear 18s from China. Couple of them worked fine, couple others the spring tried to eat itself. They're a great price but for reliability in the field I'm sticking to 17s for now.

I also agree the springs are questionable.
My 2 clear 18 lightake's arrived this morning. One works ok out of the box but the other the spring is not pushing evenly and it jams around the 11th dart.
I'll see if opening it means I can get it working to at least testbench quality but I doubt this'll get used in the field.
