Picture of How to modify an airsoft magazine
So heres the deal. Your out with your friends having a friendly and safe airsoft battle. You have a spring powered pistol (a crossman P30 in this case) and you quickly use up all 15 rounds. You forgot to bring extra BB's with you so now your body is going to be used for target practice. Unless of course you use this instructable to modify your magazine so that you can hold more than 80 BB's. If that sounds good to you then read on.

Quick details:

Cost- free if you have all the tools and the gun

Items needed- Crossman P30 (or gun with similar clip) airsoft gun

-Small Phillips and flat head screwdrivers
-Small abrasive files (an emery board might work too)
-(optional) Dremel Tool with 6mm BB sized tip (this will really speed up the process not to mention make it much better looking)

Step 1: Remove and disassemble the magazine

Picture of Remove and disassemble the magazine
First you want to remove the magazine from your gun by pushing the button located near your thumb on the gun. After you have removed that, get a screwdriver and remove the screw on the bottom of the magazine. This will cause the bottom piece to come off and the spring to pop out, make sure you don't loose any of the parts. Next remove the two screws on the side of the magazine and pry the magazine open gently with a flat head screwdriver. You will see a large heavy lead weight that gives the magazine its heft, if you don't worry about the magazine weighing a couple ounces less then proceed to remove it. If you like your magazine to be very heavy then stop now and put it all back together, this is not for you. This open area is where the extra 65 BB's will be held. You are now done with the first step. Go on to modifying the magazine.

im not entirely sure wuts the difference
If I remember correctly magazines are what handguns use, clips are what rifles use.
clips are reallu known as striper clips and you insert them through the action where the empty cartridge comes out after you open the action and then you put the stripper clip in and iloads the gun when you are out of ammunition the stripper clip flys out of the gun but guns with stipper clips are rare but here are a few Kar 98, M1 Garand, Styer M1911 and some M14A1

actually it's called a magazine, not a clip
Actually it can be called either.
only if it's an actual CLIP for a revolver or a bolt action rifle
A revolver uses a drum thing.
Its called the cylinder

I have that same gun I got it at big 5

a clip is a litteral clip of bullets usally for some sort of bolt action rifle, a magazine is a detachable piece of equipment that you can reuse so therefore i win

ok a clip feeds a mag a mag feeds the gun the closest thing in airsoft to a clip is a speed loader the m1 garand has an internal mag, so it looks like it's clip fed it's not empty clips are usually a flat piece of metal with little bend ridges on the sides looking at one being held upright from above would look something like [__]. in conclusion. fireFIEND is right.

for airsoft the closest thing to a clip is a speedloader and magazines are the same
Well, your name is Mr. Bean. So I have a question. Have you seen Mr. Bean's Holiday?
Funny movie what a dumb guy sticks his finger in a ciggeret lighter
does that have any relevance?
why yes. nah.
k just checkin. lol
LMFAO That was pretty funny Why yes, there is Nah.
haha yes i have sorry for the insanely long response time pretty decent movie imo
S'ok, AWESOME movie.
heres your answer
Oh... so clips are like those things that they had in that one WWII movie. You know, the one with the hillbilly that becomes religious, tries to not go to war, still does, captures a bunch of Germans and is a hero. And there was a shooting contest to win a cow. I don't know what it was called... BTW, this mod is useful and semi-easily do-able. Good job!
oh thank god u found that
