    Default Tapco mags; good or bad?

    I see Tapco thirty rounders in SGN for reasonable money. Worth buying a couple?

    I've had trouble with the followers sticking halfway down, I guess I was able to fix it by cutting the followers for more clearance for the AR mag springs they used, and sanding the sides, then putting graphite on them.

    Stay with commie surplus mags, unless you really need the compliance parts on something like an east german build where you don't wanna change too much...

    I had a Tapco Galil mag for a Saiga .223 I converted this summer. I put about 300 rounds through it before I sold the gun. Not a hiccup.
    Haven't seen much critical about them.

    Postak can't beat them

    I have used tapco mags, in ar's and ak's extensively, and they are hard to beat. That is not to say that they are the best for all types of firearms, but I do think that they are or high quality and a great price.

    I have put about 300 + rounds through my YUGO AK and not one malfunction.
    I recommend them, just give them a try and see how they work with you gun.
