I have not seen this issue addressed in either reviews or product descriptions.The question is about magazines that combine a CO2 capsule and the ammo, as is the case with many BB or Airsoft pistols:

Is the CO2 depleted every time you reload ammo? Most such magazines have 15-18 BBs, so that would mean changing the CO2 capsule every time - a lot of extra cost for capsules. Or does the magazine have some kind of stopper so that the CO2 doesn't leak out when reloading?

I'm interested in the KWC Makarov PM Airsoft. It has an integrated magazine - pricey too.

[emoji38] [emoji38] nope nope~ that won't happen~

Although they are combined into one drop out magazine, there are two different segments for the ammo and the co2 capsule.

The co2 usually will be tightened by a big hex screw and penetrated at the valve. And the BBs are loaded into the side slot... (You know our BBs are 4.5mm or 6mm size balls... It's not a 9mm bullet with shell, so it won't take lots of place to store in the mag... )

These magazine are like a self contained unit. They hold the Co2, BB's and has the valve unit installed. So you won't dump CO2 if you release the magazine. Since you still require a hammer installed on the gun, to strike the valve stem in order to release the Co2.

Illustrate what Ken said.
