I have a cyma m14 in my possession love the gun hate the mag 2 diboy Hi cap mags and I don't know if its me or the mag but every time I fire the rifle it fires 1-3 shots then stops I release the clip and 5 bb's fall out . I'm losing half my ammo just ejecting the clip . So my question is . is it the mag the gun or me not working right I'm in the process of finding mid caps though more realistic and less problems .

Probably the magazines. What voltage battery are you using? The gun might be firing too fast for the magazines. That's a problem with hicaps. I would certainly look into investing in midcaps, much less problematic.

Coyotecommand, you really need to work on cleaning up your posts. When you post like that, it makes it harder for people to help you. I'm going to be nice and not ban you for a week like we normally would on your 3rd warning since you're trying to troubleshoot a problem, but the next warning you get will likely result in a permanent ban.

Hi caps have a clock spring inside of the drive gear. That clock spring can be over wound which leaves the outer edges wound up but the center ones loose. After a while only 5 or 6 of the 40 or so loops are actually releasing which causes a full wind to only feed a few rounds. Basically what you have to do is open up the drive gear, remove the clock spring, and re wind it so that the loops are evenly distributed.
Someone wrote up a guide for it, but I couldn't find a link for you.
All AEG's do this. If you look at your hop up unit it has a feed tube that extends down to the mag. That tube is full of bb's when the mag is in the AEG. When you take out your mag those bb's are not being held in by anything and will simply fall out. It is best to run your mag until it is empty because you will lose the least amount of bb's that way. Your AEG will do that with midcaps as well.
That is also a reason some real cap mags drive me nuts. The mag holds 30 but you usually lose 3-5 bb's to the hop up feed tube. Real cap mags should hold 33 rounds which would give you 30 actual shots.

I completly agree on the mid caps . Thats is why im looking for them . I will never trust hicaps again . But is there such a thing as a extend midcap mag . I mean it has a spring system but just more ammunition in it .
Midcaps are the "extended" version. It used to be that all spring fed magazines held between 50 and 70 rounds. These are and were known as "standard" capacity mags. Then Star produced "low" capacity mags, which usually held 20 or 30 rounds. Shortly after that, somebody (I don't remember who, maybe Star again?) made the first "mid" capacity mag. It was called "mid" because it was in the middle between standard and the high capacity mags. So if you're using a mid cap mag, you're already using that "extended" spring fed mag.
Listen, I know you're trying with the grammar but you've got to do better. There is no space between the last word of a sentence and the period. There is a space (or two, depending on whether you follow newer or older rules of English) after the period and between the next word. Then, the word "I" must always always be capitalized, even if it's part of a contraction like, "I'm" or "I'll." And on the note of contractions, you need to use an apostrophe where the split is. That is, when you turn "I am" into "I'm," the apostrophe goes where the first word "I" ends and the end of the second word "am" begins. Same contractions like "can not" making "can't." We've given you a bunch of chances here. The next time you make an obviously lazy mistake, I'm going to have to ban you.
