Hey guys, I had got a few of the bulgy drums and liked them. Was wondering about the korean ones and thinking of getting a few. What was the issues with the regular box mags? Was thinking of adding some to the collection seeing ass they can still be gotten cheep.
I've not seen any straight-forward reviews on the South Korean AK mags.
There have been some forum posts with obvious unfactual statements such as "the mags are made from magnetic aluminum" and "have glued feedlips" - neither of which lend credence to the reviewer's negative statements regarding the mags IMHO.
For instance, the very weak magnetism properties of aluminum are well known, even at the grade school level:
Paramagnetic materials are metals that are weakly attracted to magnets. Aluminum and copper are such metals. These materials can become very weak magnets, but their attractive force can only be measured with sensitive instruments.

Other than some kind of jingoistic loathing of South Korean products, I haven't seen any argument as to why they can't make a good mag. Some of the posters actually have stated that the SK mags seem a bit lighter than Combloc mags, but that they worked well.
I plan on buying at least a couple to make up my own mind.
I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."
Aim and Copes have the 75 rnd drums for 129 and change. Ordered one frome Copes last night. Let u guys know if it is as good as the bulgy. On another note, there is a place with some awsome deals on those korean ak 47 box mags if any one is interested. ammunitiontogo. I ordered a 10 pck of their 40 rounder mags and it was about 125 with shipping
