Just found US made 30round mags for sale online!
 
Just ordered some Tapco 30-round mags for my MAK90 at dpharms.com

I know some love them and some hate them, but they were the only ones I've seen available recently...they just got restocked on Jan. 15th...probably won't last long!

Wow. 6 mo.s ago Crapco mags were $5 and dealers still couldn't move any...

I hate how anyone who has these in stock has the prices jacked up. If I am going to spend 20-30 on a mag I might as well spring for a US palm mag.

Got em last week...they work great in my MAK90...had to swap them in and out about 5-7 times until the polymer wore off where it needed to..no wobbling at all (like the Chinese metal one did)...main reason for purchasing them was to be 922r compliant--like anyone is going to check!

I think I'll hold out until the panic ends and then buy some more steel ones.

Not sure why so many folks do not like Tapco, I have a few 30 and a couple of 20's. Never had a problem with them. Just as reliable as my steel mags, and lighter also. I am sure you could break 1 if you tried hard enough, but they seem durable to me. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I do not think they deserve to be called crap though.

Tapcos feed fine, the problem comes when you take them off a square range and start running classes, drills, etc. with them. You will quickly find them to be not durable enough for such use. My first carbine class I sheered the rear lug off the mag when dropping to prone, after that I started replacing all my mags with Circle 10s. Worth the cost to me to have the utmost durability in a mag.

ltj9296 02-08-2013 17:45

Yes, everyone that has tried the circle 10's seem to love them. When things calm down a little I am going to have to try 1. I hope prices and inventory gets better in a few months. Really, I have plenty of mags and ammo, but you can never have too much lol.

Circle 10 Rules
 
+1 on Circle 10.
But the prices seem to have doubled, and then tripled, as of late.

Have you even been able to find any US Palms lately?

I am not much of a TAPCO fan (except for the G2 triggers), but they are the ONLY source of 20 round mags for AK 74s. I have always liked 20s since my time in the military. Even though we were issued 30 rounders, I carried an M14 magpouch with 4 20 rounders in them.

CBennett 03-02-2013 16:33

I dont mind them for range fun. they fit more "loosely" than stock mags but mine were also only $13 a mag compared to $40(ive got a AK74) and since im not EOTW prepping or going into any heavy combat I use the Tapcos often at the range even though they have some side to side slop/wiggle...they also WORK(meaning FEED 100%). And I still have the 3 factory mags that also work 100% just in case I need...factory/stock ruggedness.

drjustice 03-03-2013 20:13

The latest generation Tapco are MUCH better than the first ones. I have used and abused the 30rds mags (orange) and so far not a single FTF or function. Paid around $20 a piece for mine and got 20 from a local deale that did not have the silly Midway 2 per customer policy. Did not have good luck with ProMags and Master Molder in the AK platrform.
