How about some closeup pics?? I'm also not sure what dots you're talking about....do you mean the spot welds?

Sorry .......... I mean the spot welds. I was trying to take pics of it but the letters are so small it doesn't capture on the pic. I'll try again.

On the Yugo mags I noticed that the rear of the "bullet shape" on the top of the follower is straight. Would that work as a kind of "bolt hold open" mechanism, at least until the mag is removed?

2 of the "Chugo" mags I bought from Aimsurplus, came with different lugs. They lock up/work just as fine as all my other AK mags.

I do not know of any sources, but expect to pay a hefty premium for that rather useless feature.

It is actually already a sticky. There was a problem with all the posts I had done about a year ago that were basic reference materials. Basically, all the posts were suddenly locked out. I alerted DJNiner to this and he was kind enough to "refresh" some of the posts. There are still a few posts that need to be fixed from that series though.

Awesome thread Carlos.

I have a particular mag and was wondering about it's country of origin. According to your info, it looks like it is a Hungarian.

I just saw one of those mags in person. Brand new it seemed, wrapped and all gooed up. Interesting. I'm, sure they work fine, but I passed.

And, I second Aim Surplus for mags. Great prices, great company.

Checkout www.ammunitiontogo.com. They have unissued Yugo mags. for $13.95. That seems like a pretty good deal to me.

The two mags with the different locking lug/mag catch, (Top mag), are working perfect for me. In fact unless you are looking at the mag, while standing at the range reloading, you can't tell that mag from any other. They lock up just as tight as the others.

Thanks for the source. That is barely more than a typical (generally slightly used) price.

Great info. Thanks.

Of course now I am going to have to go down to he basement and look to see what my mags I have. I think most of them are Chinese since at one time I had 5 Chinese AKs and 10 mags per gun. Sold 4 of the 5 but kept most of the mags. I do have a SAR1 however and bought a pack of 20 round AK mags a number of years ago to go with my Saiga (the 20 rounders looked better with the Saiga)


UPDATE:

I went and looked at the mags I have readily available. I found 9, 8 of them in two mag pouches. Of the 9 two were matt black with no markings. A couple appeared to be the Romanian ones (probably came with my SAR1) with no markings. The others were blued mags with uniform welds like on the E.German mags. They had a variety of markings along the spline which included...

L H (with about an inch in between those letters)
C H (again with them separated)
Either O R or O K
P C
U B
2 K C
P C except the top of the P was cut off.

I will try and get pics if interested

AK47 Mag - What is it?

I have a few 40rd AK47 mags with an "A" stamp on the rib or the body. One has extra weld marks. What are these "A" stamped 40rd mags?

Thanks for this thread! I'm just doing the groundwork for my post-divorce present to myself (4-5 months I am told) which will probably be an Arsenal and hopefully a side folder if they ever resupply. So I wanted to give thanks and selfishly tag this for ease of finding later on down the road. Anyone have experience with the U.S. palm mags? They seem interesting and would not look half-bad on some of the newer arsenals.

Not odd, and not rare either. Just not as popular as the 30rd magazines.

I couldn't believe the construction of the AK mags, when I got my first AK. I didn't think one would ever need replacing, they're so heavy. I got a WASR that had a mag with it that absolutely would not work. It must have been run over by a tank.
