what i mean is:

If you have a blablabla mag in your gun and its fully loaded and you load a different blablabla type of bullets into your gun, can you just take out the mag and place in the new one?

btw, afterall I think larger mags would suck, it just crap to implement.
A "larger mag" upgrade is just stupid. And buying large/small mags is even more stupid cuz If you have a choise why wouldn't you always buy the larger ones.

Though different ammo types for example the AK woudl be cool imo, and easy to implement, just by letting the player chose which kind of ammo it wants to use the same way as chosing a weapon from the inverntory list when you scroll up/down

You can just take any mag out and replace it with another load. If the new load isn't capable of cycling the mechanism, you'll have to reprime it every time you take a shot. However, the more powerful round would cycle a round from the new magazine as normal. The following shots would either fail to cycle or jam or whatever. This is the only hitch I can think of when you're reloading different ammo types- and it's really only a concern in semi automatic shotguns with robust gas operation, like the SPAS12. I suppose there's a lot less danger when underloading a shotgun than overloading it.

So, to recap, if you're loading between ammo types with one in the chamber, the only reason why you'd have to touch the priming handle/slide/lever is if the new ammo didn't cycle or jammed due to a deficiency in the ammo itself.

Fux got it right. although when he says "prime" he means chambering a new round.

In the real world, USGI mags for my AR cost anywere from 15-25$ and Beta-C mags cost about 225 if you can get them on a good deal but are 250 retail.

AK mags:

Romanion 30rd mags will run about 10-15$ a peice.

Chinese 30rd mags go for about 20$.

Romanion 75rd drums go for about 90-100.

Actual russian drums go for about 150 while the chinese drums go for about 115-125.

Drum mags are far more expensive, and much harder to come by anyway.
