    Question Magpul AK Mags-Anyone Tried One-Impressions?

    Knew they were coming, but hadn't needed any x39 AK mags, so I haven't bothered to try on. I very much like their AR mags, and was hoping that their AK mags would be as good as them. Without a metal inner frame with fore and aft lugs I just can't see it. I'd really like to see a quality aftermarket, inexpensive 5.45x39 AK mag. So, has anyone taken the plunge and tested one/more ??

    I just picked one up at Bass Pro the other day. Haven't got a chance to use it yet, but will try to hit the range next week, and will give an update.

    I know a manufacturer that has tested the MagPul AK47 magazine for use in their rifles.
    It survived EVERTHING they did to it.
    They even shot a hole thru one!
    They were impressed with them.

    Saw some informal tests online. short version - they are probably a bit better than Tacpco but nowhere near Circle 10 or milsurp plastic mags.

    If you need some range mags, they should be good for that but I'm going to hold out for the metal reinforced ones (they are supposedly working on) myself.

    If you decide to get one do the drop test on it if you have a beater AK, do a search on youtube for " arsenal mag drop test ", if it passes that then they are worth getting.

    the vids i saw were doing less extreme drop tests than the arsenal ones and the lugs were still failing.

    im waiting for the steel reinforced ones. i love magpul AR mags but i just dont think its possible to have an all poly AK mag due to the design (baring some quantum leap in plastic tech).
