    Default Magazine mark for knowing when empty

    My HW100 mag has a white line on it, so I can see when it is nearing empty.

    My new FX Wildcat has no markings, so it will happen too often that I fire with no pellet in the chaimber.

    Any ideas on a professional way to add a mark. Other than tipex.

    Dremel and a cutting wheel. Score a mark identical to the HW mag's. Thin some white paint out and dip a sharp toothpick in it so that there's just enough paint on it to fill the groove. Touch the groove with the toothpick. Magic will happen.

    Or sell your guns and buy a Pulsar. I think it beeps when the mag is near done?

    Or simply just count your shots... once you get the hang of it, you wont even notice you doing it

    Or get a single shot tray. Then you will also know when you need to reload? LOL

    Ok ok it's easier said than done, but not impossible... I tend to watch the last pellet in the mag (its followed by the empty holes that's pellets were just shot out), once mag rotates and the last pellet disappears I know its my last shot... or count in 3s (3 shots = 1)
