Hi guys...........

I have a question about M4 mag compatibility. Does anyone know if the Marushin or old MGC mags will fit and function in the Tanio Koba M4?

You're probably right............

Maybe someone heard from someone who heard from someone who heard from someone else that they will fit............ Laughing

I guess worst case is I track down and buy an MGC mag and find out firsthand!

By the way, you really should add one of these Tanio Koba M4s to your collection. Who knows how much longer they'll be made. They really are a great performing modelgun. They fire great, easy on carts, and easy on parts - very durable it seems.

Hi lj,


The later MGC magazines will slip into the TK M4 mag'well, but, the magazine catch would need a bit of work to hold the mag in place. The MGC mag is a little loose in the well too.


I bought a plastic 40 rd mag' intended for real AR15, M16 & M4s sometime ago. Good news is it fits and clips securely in the TK.
As it is though, the bolt / carrier won't strip cartridges from the mag'. I guess that with a little reworking of the feedlips it could be possible to make it work.
The Bolt hold open / release catch won't work either due to feedlips fouling it.
