    mil-surp are getting harder to find at decent prices. one day plastic mags might be the only things readily available.

    I got 4 of them with a Yugo AK but have not tried them yet. I have plenty of steel mags.

    Every time I look at the plastic ones I think of melted "Pringles Lids".

    You to STG? Yeah we used to spend hours as kids making model airplanes and model boats. Then take them in the street and burn them. Now why the F#$K did we do that? I still do not know. But damn yeah they burn good.
    Wonder how long these mags would keep working if they were burning?

    Richard is pretty much spot on. Test of them on the video. This one broke and still worked.

    Not bad for no steel in the lugs, but it still needs a steel chassis like the Bulgys.

    Bass Pro was $20. Sure you'll be able to find them cheaper. Mine was an impulse buy, first time I saw one for sale.

    Still haven't made it to the range yet.

    that day is not today . I saw 10mags for $100 just the other day ( suprlus )

    Untill that day comes Ill stick with a surplus proven steel mag I can bend weld hammer on an repair over a twice expensive untested unrepairable substitute .


    i haver plenty of mags so I will have to be ina zombie VS ninja war caught in the cross fire to use up what I have in 7.62x39

    Ill try a plastic US made 223 mag but it better be cheap an proven or il stick with weiger or galil mags . I have tried the tapco 223 mags an they worked very well.

    I wish I had actual feed back for the OP on the product in qwuaestion .

    the only way id consider a plastic lipped x39 mag would be if I had one AK only had 922 compliance issues.

    here is the result of about 3 minutes of looking.

    i also see korean steel maga for $7 . any one used them??

    I see IO sells a steel mag now as does century .

    IMO the hungarian 20 rounders are some of the best I have used .

    I have to second that. I have a couple of the 'tanker" mags and they are some great magazines. I should have bought a crapload of em back in the day.

    I always liked the bolt hold open feature on last round fired for the Yugo mags too! They are my 2nd favorite AK mag.

    Thanks for the video 4th, that was a good test.

    I haven't gotten any but have heard the metal is thinner and the spot welds are smaller. Haven't heard how well they hold up under hard use, I'm guessing not as well as the com-block ones do.

    And yes the Hungarian mags a very well made, all of them.

    I'm with this. I love the MAGPUL AR magazines and use the crap out of them but a local fun store had a bucket full of milsurp steel mags you could hand pick at $9 per. So $90 later I walked out a happy man with a good variety. I think I will try a MAGPUL but I don't know. Let us know how they run for you because other than cheap range mags I was not too impressed by TAPCO mags when I have tons of steel ones that I can also use as a close quarters weapon
