    I just installed Side-shot .25 FX Impact magazine.

    Am I impressed? No, I am not. I AM VERY IMPRESSED!

    It is so well made, that it makes original FX Impact magazine to look like a junk (it is actually a junk), that has a real price closer to $5, not $75.
    I recently purchased seconds FX Impact magazine from AOA, thinking that it is the only way… but it looks like there is no even quality control on FX Factory for such items.
    It is so poorly made, that I can’t put JSB Heavies in some slots, even though I can put them into the original one that came with the rifle (with some effort).
    All misalignments can be seen by human eyes easily.

    Side Shot magazine easily fits, JSB Kings, JSB King Heavy standard/MKII – not issues and is so much easier to reload pellets. Just day and night difference.
    There is also a minimal set of plastic details.

    Hey FX Airguns, you have to learn from people how to make quality accessories. Making only awesome quality barrels, doesn’t give you rights to make really bad and cheaply made accessories. I am really disappointed for wasting extra $75 for your junk.

    Special thanks to @Matt_Dubber for discovering such good quality magazine.

    Misaligned magazine from FX.  Original on the top, from AOA on the bottom.

    Side shot magazine.

    Mount process was smooth. No issues at all. Usability is freaking amazing.
    I LOVE IT.

    It is so easy to reload.
    It high capacity – 26 shots.
    Metal case.
    The is a lock, so I will pull out magazine accidentally.

    Yes, it is a little expensive $150. But it worth every penny from my personal stand point. However, comparing it with FX Impact original magazine, especially if you can hold both in hands, it makes FX a junk shop.

    This is very disturbing to me. Not about the side ahot magazine but the fact that there are seconds magazines floating around being sold. So how are we to know what we got is in fact a good magazine or one that just passes off as one. Take this even further how about when people sell their impacts with these second magazines. Me as a buyer would be pretty ticked off knowing it was a seconds product.

    Wow thanks for the info. I didn’t know there was such poorly made fx magazines. Makes me question the gun a little. Can you return the second magazine you got from aoa?

Gun is ok. Magazine sucks. I am not sure I can return it, it is already over a month since the purchase date. If AOA could comment on that, it would be amazing. But really… I do not want FX Magazines any more. Side-shot has beaten them to the death. Second one is going to be side-shot, and the third one…

26+26+26? do you really need to load a whole tin at a time? 

    I tend to use single shot trays for most rifles 😐

One tin is 300 or 350 pellets or 150, so 78 pellets is not that much yet.
    When I go to shooting range I shoot really quickly, single loads are not that ok for that.

    I also noticed that side-shot magazine is a little more nicer to the pellets than the original one, it is possible that single loads are no longer needed.
