RAP4 is proud to announce that of our revolutionary DMag Helix magazines are back in stock because the entire first run sold out in under 24 hours. Here's why our first run sold out in record time, and why the new DMag Helix is the magazine trusted by the world's elite units. DMAG HELIX - Holds 20+ rounds, continuously fed - No winding - this prevents tangling and jamming of the internal spring - Disassembly is completely tool-less - Made in USA DMAG: DURABLE. DEPENDABLE. DOMINATE. MADE IN USA SPRING: DMAG HELIX mags come with standard-strength springs engineered for paintballs. Paintball shells are made of gelatin, and when they are exposed to humidity or warm climates, can dimple or change their shapes. This damages their accuracy and reliability but can be avoided through top-end engineering. DMAG HELIX springs are engineered to work specifically with paintballs by exerting the right amount of force for positive feeding even at high cyclic rates, without causing damage to the paint under tension. Shaped Projectiles are not round like paintballs, and they have harder shells. The geometry of Shaped Projectiles is different from paintballs, and in paintball mags, can cause snags, jams, and create additional friction in the feeding process. Therefore Shaped Projectiles need a stronger spring. If you are shooting Shaped Projectiles you will need to change to a stronger spring that is designed for Shaped Projectiles.
The DMag Helix magazines combine simplicity of design, ruggedness of material, and the authentic look of battle rifle magazines. Good to go for all guns that accept DMags, the DMag Helix magazines are so reliable that they're used by actual SWAT teams and military units in their force-on-force training.
It takes a high performance standard to be their go-to magazine, and it takes a rugged, simple design to stand up to their hard use and abuse in the field. We've perfected the polymer used in these magazines for strength and dimensional stability in an extreme range of environments from the heat of the desert to the cold of the mountains.
We've simplified the design to where you can disassemble the DMag Helix without tools, and completely clean it of sand, dirt, and debris, with ease. Disassembly is covered expertly in this video: http://www.rap4.com/-a-1415.html
The DMag Helix is outwardly styled to reflect the latest polymer mag designs for battle rifles, and provides a perfectly textured grip for positive handling while wearing gloves, training in the rain, etc. The clear top portion is designed to give you a clear view into the top portion of the mag to ensure the inside is clean and to visually confirm which paint you have loaded.
While this clear portion disappears into your magwell, leaving the exposed parts battle-ready-black, we've received some feedback that players would prefer a more milsim approach to the color of this portion of the magazine so look for subsequent batches to include a smoked finish that balances aesthetics with the ability to positively ID the DMag Helix's contents.
The DMag Helix ships with a spring engineered for standard paintballs we've extensively tested and redesigned it to provide optimum performance for standard spherical paintballs. These springs provide optimum tension for positive feeding even at high cyclic rates, while providing balanced power that prevents shell breakage and dimpling.
Players who wish to shoot shaped projectiles, which have different ergonomics and rigidity, are able to easily swap springs (without even needing tools!) in the DMag Helix to utilize springs we have custom-tuned just for shaped projectiles. Look for those springs in our store, or request they be added to your order.
To ensure the highest production quality for our law enforcement, military, and civilian users, Helix magazines are made right here in the USA. Every mag is inspected before it's shipped, and we are proud to see them in action in the photos you share on our Facebook page! The DMag Helix magazines are trusted by the world's elite units and players across the globe.
