I think the RAP4 mags have a trip on them that doesn't release the spring pressure until you load the magazine into the marker, which helps keep you paint from being ejected out while you are carrying it.
Maybe finding a way to mod your AB to use RAP4 magazines will be the better way to go. They've already done the work on designing reliable magazines.
Reading this, i got this crazy idea.
What if instead of using a spring to feed the paint through the mag, why not regulate some air pressure to the mag, but just enough to have continual pressure to lift the balls to the top of the mag, and with every shot, a burst more of air would push the new ball into the chamber, acting kind of like a cyclone feed.
cyclones cost 60$ aftermarket, and i doubt he could make that mechanism himself, he would probably have to buy a cyclone and disassemble it for parts.
Then he would have to run air to the mag, in which case it could not be removed from the marker, he could only have one mag instead of multiples, he would have to hand load that mag every 20 shots while keeping it connected to the air source
and he would still have to keep the balls running on a track like discussed earlier, so its a heck of a lot of work for something when a 2$ spring has been proven to work just fine

I see what your trying to do winding the paintballs through the magazine, but im no0t convinced that would work. That isn't in fact how rap4 makes their magazines. If you take a look at their clear magazines, you'll see what i'm talking about.
