    Default AK74 Mags

    Are any type more reliable than the others? Such as the orange bakelite vs black polymer.

    I think they all seem to be pretty reliable... That being said, I really don't have too many to compare.. In the end I think the polymer mags would be more rugged, as Bakealite tends to be brittle..

    Hey Frank--

    I can't tell the difference between them operationally.

    I think the German orange ones are ugly.

    But Aluma Hyde II is like gravy;

    it covers a variety of sins.

    I agree about the color. Kind of like plum stocks (to me anyways). Whats up with that?

    I was looking at K-var's site and was wondering if the extra $2 for a mag marked "21" or was that "25" was because one was better built or just for the marking.

    Jack, does your wife need my meatloaf recipe? I have a good one that seems to be popular with my family and friends.

    Back to the -74 mags. The orange bakelites I have seem sturdy enough and feel heavy duty. The polymer mags seem sturdy also. Guess it all depends on what you prefer. Another thought is the orange -74 mags have metal followers and the polymer -74 mags (bulgarian) I have all have plastic followers.

    charles, your steel ones are very nice.
    never had any problems with e/g mags, but, only circle 10' s work in my sar-the others fit to tight to lock up.

    Come on Jack, -- your wife is not a meatloaf kind of a girl.

    That's a little like hooking some of those ponies in your backyard to a wagon.

    And what's the difference between those different numbers in the circle? K-var gets different prices - some better?

    winn, the different numbers are for different factories in Bulgaria. I'm not sure which number goes to which factory though. As to if some are better - ????
