Review: So why do some people use the Tippmann X7 over any other paintball marker in the market ? Simple, because the X7 was made directly for those who play Military-Simulation and Scenario Paintball. The Tippmann X7's main draw is that it can be customized to replicate the look of real firearms, which lead to companies such as Scenario Arms providing products to add to the X7's numerous configurations.

The Scenario Arms G3 Heavy Mag, is a great piece of accessory for anyone who owns a Tippmann X7, specifically for upgrading the looks. If you are tired of having your plastic magazine fall out during games, then look into this G3 Heavy Mag. I have been using this HEAVY MAG since the day of its release and have not experienced any problems. It attaches to the marker by way of sliding it in the 2 brackets of the X7 receiver from where the stock-magwell is located. From that point, it holds on tightly.

The Heavy Mag itself is extremely sturdy which can withstand all the harsh play in any environment. From the woods, to the concrete, the Heavy Mag can be bashed, smacked, dropped, and hit. It will still hold, and does in fact scratch however you would really have to dig into it to do so. The quality alone to avoid damage and even light scratches is worth the price.

The Scenario Arms G3 Heavy Mag really adds to the look and over all appeal for practically every look, especially for those who have an X7 to look like a "Sniper Rifle" and or even an M4/HK-416.

Despite the greater appeal it adds and the sturdiness, i did not anticipate how heavy the Heavy Mag truly is. It does add about 9oz. more or less however this also appeals to those who would like over all a heavier marker. The weight is not too drastic of a change but noticeable.

You cannot really go wrong with this product, if you want a more realistic looking-replica of firearm out a paintball marker, the G3 Heavy Mag definitely adds to the "WOW" factor. I get stopped many-a-time asking me if the Heavy Mag was off a real gun. The Tippmann X7 is only about looks after all.


Conclusion: You can't really go wrong with this product, if you want a more realistic looking-replica of firearm out a paintball marker, the G3 Heavy Mag definitely adds to the "WOW" factor. I get stopped many-a-time by players asking me if the Heavy Mag was off a real gun. The Tippmann X7 is only about looks after all. Great when there are special events happening, like Big Games or Scenario Events.
