While it's too bad the mags can't be preloaded this will still be a very worthwhile product to have. I'm hoping they'll be available in both 6 shot and 10 shot configurations. ;)

It should be a simple matter of putting a wide rubber band (like cut from a small inner tube) to keep pre-loaded pellets from falling out the bottom while in your pocket.

I don't think the magazines just snap in to replace easily. I think they are mounted (somehow) and not simple to swap so it's probably easier to just reload as it's attached. Ron will correct me if I'm wrong though.

The magazine does in fact drop easily into the receiver that's mounted to the gun. There is a detent in the magazine and designed in the receiver is a spring loaded feature that nicely captures the magazine to keep it from falling out during the rigors of hunting.

Certainly a user could use a rubber band or a small piece of tape to keep pellets in the detachable magazine (s) upon removing the tape or band the user would not wish to tip the magazine lest he spill the contents of the mag. This means he would have to tip the gun on its side and bring the gun to the magazine. Not a big deal to do it that way if you really want additional full magazines.

After shooting a lot of pellets out of this magazine I find it very easy to drop 6 or 10 pellets down the chute after the mag is snapped into the receiver.

Still sounds like an invention that will make an already wonderful airgun even better.
I want one!

All that is needed for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.

They that give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

That's great to hear. I assumed it would be held with a set screw.

How do you word it... "Air Guns" or "AirGuns"?
